Leave the Pistol Behind
Anne the Bone was no fool.
Red Johnny Bootleg might be hung like a well-fed donkey, but he was a good for nothing bully of a blaggard and she was done with him. She’d been thinking with her cunny for too long, acting like a sex-starved old salt. Talented in the bedchamber he might be, but Red Johnny was the most incompetent captain she’d ever sailed with. No sooner had they stepped on that fucking island than they were in all kinds of hellish bother. No treasure was worth the kinds of shit they’d seen that day. Now, the black spot was upon him and there would be no running this time. He may have come within a breath of dancing with old Jack Ketch a hundred times – if you believed his tall tales – but Red Johnny’s voyage was near its end, the devil take him.
Every good for nothing pirate knew Fang Sank Island was a place to stay clear of. Still, pirates weren’t known for their restraint or lack of ambition when it
came to riches, and many had gone to the island never to be seen again. Red Johnny would be no different. He’d once told her that he’d wanted to be a pirate ever since he’d been suckling on his mama’s tit in one of Blind Bobba Boontang’s brothels on Carpenter Bay.
Ok I confess, I’ve been in denial about Christmas. Even as I crack open another door on my advent calendar, scoff, the chocolate and am glad it’s not just a picture of a robin or something, I still on some level think Christmas is weeks away.
So I can only apologise that the fantastic collection by C.A. Yates is not already in your hands, trying to bite you, but we are almost ready to unleash it on an unready world.
A mix of old and new stories from the author, pulled together and showing what we knew but you might have missed if you haven’t been paying close attention. Yates has a broad range, from the witty to the ridiculous, the dark to the deeply moving.
Join us, the the last publication of 2021 We All Have Teeth.
Hello Foxy Folk!
We are delighted to reveal the cover for the upcoming collection of one of our most featured writers and editor of The Fox Spirit Book of Love, C.A. Yates. Designed by Vincent Holland-Keen and the author, we pray your eyes can take it…
Have you ever wondered if fish can sing? Seen bikinis kill? Been curious about whether or not there’ll be any justice at the end of the world, or if dogs are really psychopomps? Don’t worry if you haven’t, because C.A. Yates has already thought about all these things and more. Her debut collection gathers together most of her work with Fox Spirit Books, plus other outlets, and some new and previously unpublished work under one roof… which, admittedly, makes for some strange bedfellows. That’s how we like it though, right?

‘a great collection of loss, love, horror revenge and most of all empowerment’ – From a review of Girls and Aliens by RunAlongTheShelves
It’s that time of year, Halloween just past and in the UK Bonfire Night is upon us. It’s a time when ghosts may wander abroad and fires offer more than a place to burn the unfortunate Mr Fawkes, they give us safety against the drawing dark and the things that move within it.

Five Girls, Five Ghosts. Five Tales of hauntings and secrets. In this collection Anne Michaud brings us empathy and horror. Never underestimate the anger of the dead or the resilience of the living.

Caleuche by Jonathan Ward
Jericho has fallen.
The world lies in ruins: overrun by an endless tide of self-replicating killing machines known as the Bugs.

Hire Idiots by Professor I. M. Nemo
