This collection of five diverse and highly entertaining short stories, straight from the ingenious imagination of New York Times best-selling author Jonathan Maberry, includes one story written exclusively for Blackstone Audio.

“Adventure of the Greenbrier Ghost”
Starring Sherlock Holmes, this tale is based on a real-life ghost story from West Virginia. The basis of the story comes from a court case in the 19th century in which the testimony of a ghost was entered into evidence, leading to the conviction of a murderer. Maberry has thrown Holmes and Watson into the mix for added punch.
“Doctor Nine”
A psychological thriller about a little girl whose imaginary friends are guiding her through the process of becoming a serial killer, this story originally appeared in the anthology Killers and has been reprinted many times.
“Like Part of the Family”
This urban noir fantasy tale introduces werewolf PI Sam Hunter.
“Property Condemned”
Set in Pine Deep, the small town featured in Ghost Road Blues, Dead Man’s Song, and Bad Moon Rising, this is a chilling psychological ghost story.
An exclusive story written especially for Blackstone Audio.

TALES FROM THE FIRE ZONE is available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Audible, Ambling Books and Books-A-Million.


“Every so often you discover an author whose writing is so lyrical that it transcends mere storytelling. Jonathan Maberry is just such an author.”—Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author

“This is a great series of stories for those cold autumn nights. Maberry has a good mix of outright horror and subtle psychology terror and with his penchant for visual action and vivid imagery, this collection is a sure hit. So, welcome to Maberry’s Fire Zone, but be warned, you may just get a little singed in the process.” -The Guilded Earlobe
