Lethal Birds is a collection of five memorable stories from award winning author Gene O'Neill. It includes a novella that kicks off the beginning of his new novel The White Plague, the Bram Stoker Award (R) winning novella The Blue Heron and Bram Stoker Award (R) nominated novella Rusting Chickens. Operation Rhinoceros set in Borneo where Gene spent some time avoiding local delicacy the Sago palm tree grubs, available raw or roasted, and supposedly sweet and as tasty as prawns, rounds out the collection. The idea for the book occurred to Gene at a birthday party for his grandson, T.J. His mother made a birthday cake per his instructions, of the popular game, Angry Birds. Gene looked at that cake and remembered some of his best stories included or had birds in the titles and so Lethal Birds was conceived.

Author Biography

Gene O'Neill has seen over 140 of his stories and novellas published, several reprinted in France, Spain, and Russia. A few of his past stories have garnered Nebula and Stoker recommendations, including "Balance," a short story Stoker finalist in 2007, and The Confessions of St. Zach, a Stoker finalist in the long fiction category in 2009. Doc Good's Traveling Show was a long fiction Stoker finalist in 2010 and Taste of Tenderloin won that year for collection after garnering a red-starred review at Publishers Weekly. In 2011 he had three Stoker finalists, including "Graffiti Sonata." In 2012 The Blue Heron was a Stoker finalist and won for long fiction. Some of these stories have been collected in Ghost Spirits, Computers & World Machines, The Grand Struggle, In Dark Corners, Dance of the Blue Lady and The Hitchhiking Effect. He has seen five novels of his published. Upcoming in 2016 are the four TPBs in the Cal Wild Chronicles from Written Backwords Press. A novel, The White Plague and a novella collaboration with Chris Marrs, Entangled Soul are being read for placement.
