Read full description of the books:
Malone now proudly presents Beyond The Pale, a collection of 5 compelling stories by one of modern horror’s most potent voices. Beginning with a ghostly romance (Tableau Vivant), through two wet hanky hauntings (ARMY BRAT & One Little Indian Boy) to downright wickedness (Nice. . . little. . . old. . .) and the conscience-shocking finale of the title story (Beyond The Pale), Malone delivers gripping, edge-of-your-seat tension that make us see ourselves reflected through the prism of his unique style of character driven, thought provoking spookery. So settle in readers, put your feet up in your most comfortable chair on a stormy night or by a roaring fire, and be inextricably drawn into the shadowy emotional funhouse of America’s Master of the Macabre. But be warned, grab the safety bar and hold on tight, because once the ride begins there will be no turning back until the very last white-knuckled word.
Webster's 1913 Dictionary defined the term, "Beyond the pale," as being, "outside the limits of what is allowed or proper. . . outside the limits within which one is protected." And with this collection, Malone lives up to every word of that definition.
Tableau Vivant- An O. Henry inspired romance between two unlikely participants, Rena Sokol, an almost-old maid, "nice Jewish girl" from Manhattan's Upper East Side and John Andrew Hill, a desperately lonely, twice-divorced, decidedly "Non-Jewish" downtown boy drawn together by a most unlikely matchmaker with a 1950's soundtrack completing the picture. Heavenly shades of night are falling, it's twilight time. Out of the mist your voice is calling, 'tis twilight time. (The Platters 1958)
ARMY BRAT- In Hollywood Book Festival 1st Runner-Up Winner, ARMY BRAT, Malone presents a mystical journey to the American Southwest. Follow retired army man, Joss Meredith, in the crisis of his life as he runs away from and ultimately towards the most basic questions that define a man, only to find the answers on a lonely highway in the Arizona desert, stranded in an isolated 1950's style diner called Reb's Cafe with a strange, solitary boy named Ben who holds the key to an emotional wallop of an ending that will leave readers gasping. Keep a Kleenex handy to wipe an eye for the hauntingly unforgettable. . . ARMY BRAT. “He was just a hired hand, workin’ on the dreams he planned to try, the days go by . . .”
One Little Indian Boy- Malone is back in the saddle again. . . this time with a rootin' tootin', six gun shootin' vengeance that can only be described as the companion piece to his controversial five hanky haunting, ARMY BRAT and the centerpiece of the collection itself. And with New York Book Festival 1st Runner-Up Winner, One Little Indian Boy , he delivers nothing less. Once again Malone takes us to the American Southwest. And as only Malone can do, One Little Indian Boy is colored with finely etched characterizations drawn into an otherworldly landscape as they are woven into a haunting that can only lead to breathtaking, eye-dabbing, and frightening consequences. So saddle up, readers, for a nice, long ride into the sunset as you listen to America's singing cowboy croon to the sound of horse hooves. Release your inner cowboy and join Novelist Mack Guthrie as he goes on a search for The Ghost of Billy the Kid but who instead finds himself on a life shattering journey into the deepest recesses of what it means to be a man, discovering places within himself as vast, powerful and as the desert that has consumed him. But be warned. It's time to get your hankies out again, readers, in welcoming Malone's latest, the hauntingly heartbreaking. . . One Little Indian Boy. Git along little dogies. Git along.
Nice. . . little. . . old. . . Did you ever walk by a park bench in the afternoon and see senior citizens feeding the birds, kindly chatting with each other, all so serene and idyllic. As we watch these peaceful scenes, we find ourselves comforted by them, lulled into a sense of security. Well, readers, Nice. . .little. . . old is about to change all that. In the style of Rod Serling and Alfred Hitchcock (Classic 60s TV shows The Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents), Malone has done what he does best; changed the way we view ourselves and the world around us, revealing nothing less than the shocking realities of the human condition we so often bury under Norman Rockwell images, Thomas Kinkade landscapes and Martha Stewart table settings because it soothes us, but nonetheless lurks just beneath those surfaces, ready to jump out at any given moment to shatter the carefully built fictions we so often create for lives.
Beyond The Pale (title story)- Prison inmate, Frank Jarrett, is a hard case, a convicted murderer in his fifteenth year behind bars. Muscle bound and tattooed on the outside, every fiber of Jarrett's inner being is riddled with guilt; crushing, all-consuming guilt that makes him wish for death every day. But on his special day, it all becomes intensified one hundred fold. It's time for his parole hearing, having to face not only the panel of parole officers, but the face of the woman he made a widow; a woman with a secret so powerful that it rocks the sensibilities of that room beyond all reasoning, beyond all acceptability and. . . Beyond The Pale.
