Hey, all. It’s been a wee bit difficult drumming up reviews for Turn to Ash, Volume 1 thus far. If you or someone you know has a blog, zine, pirate radio station, or hastily-mimeographed manifesto in which they’d like to review Vol. 1, or any and all future volumes of Turn to Ash, please don’t hesitate to contact me at turntoashmedia (AT) gmail (DOT) com with relevant links and/or blurry photographs. Thanks!
Price drop! Now through Halloween, all you fine autumn people can get a copy of Turn to Ash, Vol. 1 for $9 from Amazon.
If you’re taking advantage of the sale, or if you’ve already bought the book, please consider rating and/or reviewing it on Amazon or Goodreads – we’d really appreciate it!
The signal from WORN – Radio Orion grows louder and clearer with each passing day, and through the static, Turn to Ash, Vol. 2: Open Lines begins to take form.
Open Lines is a unique series of strange stories, presented as phone calls to late night paranormal talk show host, Chuck Leek, on his nationally syndicated radio program, The Late Night Leak. Of course, Chuck is having a hell of a night himself, and the calls weave through a frame story detailing his weird night of High Strangeness.
I’m pleased to announce the TOC for Turn to Ash, Vol. 2: Open Lines (not yet in final running order):
Cold Call (frame story) – Jonathan Raab
The Sun Screams in Retrograde – Rebecca Allred
OGRE – Joseph Bouthiette Jr
All that Moves Us – Evan Dicken
The White Factory – Kurt Fawver
A Room with Two Views – Joanna Michal Hoyt
When the Trees Sing – S. L. Edwards
Rails – Thomas Mavroudis
Lullabies from the Formicary – Betty Rocksteady
Midnight in the Desert – Joseph Pastula
The Merger – A.P. Sessler
Death Run – Martin Rose
Including recurring columns from Jose Cruz and James Newman, Turn to Ash, Vol. 2 will feature several pieces of non-fiction pertaining to radio, conspiracy, and the kind of weird goings-on covered by Mr. Leek’s show.
Small Wonders – The Thing on the Fourble Board – Jose Cruz
Take It From Me (But Give It Back When You’re Done): Random Thoughts On Horror Cinema – It’s a Cover-Up! (Seven Fright Flicks Featuring a Sinister Conspiracy) – James Newman

Turn to Ash, Vol. 2: Open Lines will be available to order in late October. Watch this space and WORN – 1600 AM for further updates.
I have been remiss in not posting any of the Turn to Ash, Vol. 1 Author Spotlights on this blog, and instead only sharing them with the Social Media Goon Squad on our
Turn to Ash, Vol. 1 is available for pre-order here, and will be available from Amazon and Amazon EU in the last week of August.
The Vol. 1/Vol.0 Bundle is now SOLD OUT. Thanks to everyone who ordered.
Fear not if you missed out, Vol. 1 is still available for pre-order. Just follow the link HERE.
There are only 3 copies of the Vol.1/Vol.0 bundle remaining. I would assume that they will be gone in the next 24 hours or so. If you’ve been on the fence and you wish to climb down, click HERE to order.
These are the last of only 50 copies of Vol. 0 that I will ever have for sale. Vol. 1 will still be available for pre-order after the supply of Vol.1/Vol.0 bundles is exhausted.
Today is the day. Turn to Ash, Vol. 1 is available for pre-order. The first 50 folks to order will receive a bonus mini-issue, the not-so-subtly hinted at Turn to Ash, Vol. 0. Five pieces of fiction, one essay, and several pieces of art that do not appear in Vol. 1. This issue will only be available to the first 50 pre-orderers, so act quickly. The cost for the two volumes, a couple of buttons, a couple of stickers, and a bookmark is $13 plus shipping. I apologize for the cost of shipping outside the US, but that’s how much our lovely USPS charges to fling books outside our borders.
Turn to Ash, Vol. 1 will be available from Amazon US and EU in September, but the only way to get Vol. 0 and all the bonus swag is to order directly from us.
Below you will find the tables of contents for both volumes and the link to buy them. Orders will ship in approximately 60 days.
