Abandoned
Every time James Sutton gets close to someone, it ends in disaster. He's abandoned at birth by his parents, at nine by his best friend Alex and his dog Trixie, at eighteen by his girlfriend Donna, and at thirty when his adoptive father commits suicide and leaves James alone . . . again.On a rare warm day in January, James witnesses a man suffer a heart attack. The paramedics arrive in minutes and whisk the man away, failing to see the pair of glasses lying on the ground where the man collapsed. For James and his abandonment issues, this will not do. It's time for a little payback on behalf of everyone-and every thing-that has ever been neglected or discarded. James is going to set things right again: one body part at a time."Dan Foley knows the hard truth: that the darkest of monsters reside within the human heart. Abandoned is just plain scary-the kind of horror that's made all the more terrifying because it could be true." ~ Charles R. Rutledge, co-author of BLIND SHADOWS and CONGREGATIONS OF THE DEAD "A deliciously macabre dark comedy that serves as a reminder of just how close we all can be to the brink of insanity." ~ Peter N. Dudar, Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of A REQUIEM FOR DEAD FLIES and WHERE SPIDERS FEAR TO SPIN"If the measure of a man is his mind, Dan Foley inhabits a world of horrors that is otherwise unoccupied. Abandoned grabs you from the very beginning and doesn't let go. This one will stay with you long after the last page has been turned." ~ John Valeri, HARTFORD BOOKS EXAMINER". . . an inventive and sympathetic exploration of the extreme effects of rejection and isolation. Although there are hints of Fowles's THE COLLECTOR as well as Lindsay's Dexter, this book is all Dan Foley. Abandoned is an exciting portrait of a man struggling to reconcile his cravings for belonging with his urges for bloody retribution. It shows . . . that Foley clearly has heart-maybe several of them-in jars on his desk." ~ Bracken MacLeod, author of MOUNTAIN HOME and STRANDED

The Whispers of Crows
Dan Foley, one of the horror genre's best-kept secrets, presents The Whispers of Crows, his collection featuring new and previously published stories.

The whispers of crows in these pages involve murder and so much more. Within them you will meet Nathan, whose destiny requires him to spend his days gathering their secretes — Scooter, who can’t convince his best friend that he’s dead — Gordy, whose dead dad is an unwelcome guest on Father’s Day — and Pete, who keeps an annual Halloween date with a demon named Sam in a New Jersey graveyard.

Wolf's Tale
Melvin “Wolf” Lobo is returning to his beloved bayou to face Old Ben, the ghost who hungers for his blood.

What he doesn’t know, but will soon find out, is that there are things more dangerous in the Louisiana swamps than a malignant spirit. "Foley's WOLF'S TALE is a classic ghost story and a rollicking adventure. New Orleans is so well drawn it leaps off the page, becoming as much a character as anyone else, living or otherwise. Terrifying and loads of fun!" – Nate Kenyon, author of BLOODSTONE, THE REACH, and DAY ONE: A NOVEL

Toni's Tale
Antoinette “Toni” Rose Lobo had never seen a ghost, but didn’t think it was unusual that her father did. At the age of five, Toni also didn’t think it was strange that she had a small, humanoid like creature who looked very much like a mythical demon for a best friend. He had red skin, two small horns, and glowing red eyes. His name was Little Wolf. His mouth featured two sharp little fangs. His body was muscular and well formed. She wasn’t supposed to let anyone see him, but if they did, all they would see was a hairless red rat. Toni liked the idea that he was her special friend that only she, Mommy, and Daddy knew what he really was. One day she asked why Daddy could see the ghosts but she and Mommy couldn’t. “Daddy’s special,” Mommy answered. “That’s why he can see them and we can’t.” Toni thought about that and it bothered her. “How come I’m not special?” she finally asked. “Because you’re not old enough,” Mommy answered. “Will I be special when I get old enough?” “Maybe,” Mommy told her. “Maybe.”
