Shapeshifters Anonymous


It isn't easy being a werewolf. Especially when you're a newbie at shapeshifting.

Lucky, there's a group called Shapeshifters Anonymous that will help you work through the difficult times, like eating your friends, and shedding.

When recently turned werewolf Robert Weston Smith discovers his new found abilities in a humorous (but alarming) way, he seeks out the support group to help him figure things out. There he meets various characters who transform into assorted, odd things, including a sexy werecheetah named Irena.

But little did Weston know he'd been followed to this private gathering, by someone who wants to do the therianthropes a great deal of harm...

Shapeshifters Anonymous is a 12,000 word novella, specifically formatted for Kindle. It contains a handful of werepeople, a dash of romance, some gratuitous humor, and revisionist Xmas theories. It also has previews of Konrath's other work. It was previously published in the collection Wolfsbane and Mistletoe.

The Agreement


How far would you do to get out of a gambling debt?

"The Agreement" is a short story that originally appeared in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine in March 2005. It currently appears in the Konrath story collection 65 Proof.

Because "The Agreement" ties into the Jack Daniels thriller Last Call, Konrath has made it available on its own. Also included is a chapter from Last Call.

Warning: Though this only takes a few minutes to read, the images will stick with your for life. This is a wickedly mean story. So let the reader beware...
