“The Ocean’s Misfortune,” a short story by Alison McBain, rolls like an unclean tide into The Lost Librarian’s Grave horror anthology

The Lost Librarian’s Grave—coming October 1, 2021.

Wednesday brings more good news from The Lost Librarian’s Grave: Alison McBain’s short story, “The Ocean’s Misfortune,” rolls into the anthology like an unclean tide, redolent with dead eels and even deader eyes. The oceans bring lifethe oceans are lifebut sometimes what a fisherman brings back is something not exactly Life, nor is it Death, but a fate worse than either.

Alison has nearly a hundred short publication credits over a wide range of genres including literary, romance, horror, science fiction, fantasy, historical, and adventure.

Her debut novel, The Rose Queen, received the Gold Award in the Young Adult Fantasy category of the 2019 Literary Classics International Book Awards. During the same year, she released Enchantress of Books, a collection of her short, fantasy stories.

Alison was born in Canada, raised in California, and currently resides in the beautiful state of Connecticut, where she chose to raise her family. Her personal mantra is, “Do something creative every day,” so between her writing and drawing she always has irons in the creative fire.
