Dark Alley Press releases horror novel, The Garden of Fragile Things, by Richard J. O'Brien.


Dark Alley Press announces the release of Richard J. O'Brien's chilling novel, The Garden of Fragile Things, on June 16, 2015. The Garden of Fragile Things is a literary dark tale that chronicles four boys’ coming of age against paranormal forces that operate between two worlds.


In the late 1970s, Joe Godwin was just twelve years old, living in a working-class neighborhood. Plagued by bullies and a volatile home life, Joe spends his time with his three friends in search of adventure. The discovery of an abandon mansion during a simple camping trip in a state forest sets of a series of consequences in motion between the boys, inhabitants of the mansion, and the others who occupy the garden behind the colossal home.


"Readers who enjoyed The Body from Stephen King will love Richard O'Brien's fresh take on the young adult supernatural novel," says Managing Editor, Fawn Neun. "We're delighted to work with Richard, and know readers will have trouble putting The Garden of Fragile Things down until the very last page."


Richard J. O'Brien was born in Camden, New Jersey. He served the army, attended Rutgers University, and worked a variety of jobs before attending graduate school. In 2012, he received his MFA in Creative Writing from Fairleigh Dickinson University. Currently, the author lives in Havertown, Pennsylvania and teaches English composition at Mercer County Community College, Rowan College at Gloucester County, and others.


Digital Review copies are immediately available to reviewers, book bloggers, and press, and Mr. O'Brien and Dark Alley Press welcome requests for interviews, guest posts, and reader giveaway contests. For more information, publication details, and to read an excerpt, please visit:

Announcing the publication of what will come to be seen as the definitive portrayal of the amazing year that was 1967, ‘the summer of love’

Free ebook in exchange for a review.

 '1967' plots the course of a momentous year.

The year when pop turned into progressive rock and masterpieces from The Beatles and The Rolling Stones provided the soundtrack to what were revolutionary times. The novel by David Stuart Ryan, author of the bestselling 'John Lennon's Secret’, describes the events as they happen month by month, through the non-stop kaleidoscope of the life of Paul Dane, an advertising copywriter, and his circle of friends. If you thought the world of ‘Mad Men’ was strange, the adventures in this volume will only confirm all your wildest suspicions. You live out the exhilarating, unpredictable but always totally engaging events, music and experimentation that stamped themselves on a year, and produced the legendary 'summer of love'.

There has probably never been a time when the women were so willing, the mood music so congenial, the artificial aids to expanded consciousness so freely available. You start to realize as you progress through the heady months of 1967 that everything is evolving at a fantastic speed, a whole year's evolution appears to take place in a month, or less, as the young suddenly and inexplicably begin to seek out their dreams and fantasies, aided and abetted by some of the best music every produced, the tracks that have become an intimate part of our lives and which continue to haunt and fascinate in equal measure.

'1967' takes you behind the scenes to give you an understanding of just what it was like to experience this tsunami of change, of hope and ultimately of changes with profound revolutionary implications that are even today working themselves out as the old ways are rejected, as a counter-revolution runs out of steam and the visions that beguiled a whole generation move into the mainstream.

And yes there is a lot of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. This is 1967. It is more 50 shades of psychedelic colour than the grey of a postwar world. What a trip you are about to embark upon.
