Short Story Saturday: Dark Heart

Recently I've been plugging the German horror short story anthology DIABOLOS MMXIV, which includes a translation of my story The Doll's House. If you don't read German, you might be pleased to hear that the story is available in English as part of the collection of sinister stories that's called Dark Heart.

Talking of Dark Heart, I recently came across a couple of delightful reviews of my first short story collection, one of which cleverly summarised each of the stories, whilst also giving them all an individual rating out of 10. Here's what they had to say about The Doll's House:

"The Doll's House (10/10) When a struggling new mother finds that home life is running her ragged, she decides to root out the problem."

And here's what the other reviewer had to say about the whole collection:

"Seeing the name Jonathan Green on a cover of a novel, for me, sells it instantly, knowing this is a collection of short horror stories again, sells it. The best thing for me about collections like this is it generally cuts down the genre to just the bare essentials instead of giving authors way too much space to fill up and distract from the bones of the business and this is where Green is always at his best anyway. Direct, creepy as hell, and worth every second of your time."

If you've not yet picked up a copy of Dark Heart for yourself, you can do so here, in both ebook and processed-tree-carcass formats.
