About Us

Short, Scary Tales Publications (SST Publications) is a tiny UK independent publisher with huge dreams that was founded in 1999 by Paul Fry. In 2000, we published our first title, Cold Storage, a horror collection including an introduction by the legendary Graham Masterton.

We have been extremely lucky to publish some of the best authors in the business. Including Stephen King, Joe R. Lansdale, Clive Barker, Ray Garton, Ed Gorman, Simon Clark, Jack Ketchum, Bentley Little, Steve Rasnic Tem, Peter Straub, Tom Piccirilli, Paul Kane, Richard Chizmar plus many more…

Our aim is to produce the highest-quality titles in several formats and genres. But our top priority is to treat our customers like we’d like to be treated. We think that’s extremely important in any business.

Thank you so much for your interest in SST, and we hope you’ll enjoy our books!

Take care,
Paul Fry.
