Scary Tales Series

That Risen Snow cover

A Killer Serial

I’m currently working on THE SCARY TALES, a fairy tale of monstrous proportions. The series’ original publisher has gone out of business, but I’ll be re-releasing the original books soon plus the final books of the series.

This dark fantasy series features mash-ups of traditional fairy tale characters and classic horror monsters. Think Lord of the Rings meets The Walking Dead, with a twist of Grimm’s Fairy Tales.

By the time THE SCARY TALES series ends, it will incorporate dozens of fairy tales and all of the primary monsters from the timeless Universal horror movies. The series will consist of ten books total–the seven that were previously published plus three more.

Click the links below to learn more about the first seven books in THE SCARY TALES series that were previously published.

Book One
THAT RISEN SNOW: A Scary Tale of Snow White & Zombies

“Part delicious dream, part nightmare, That Risen Snow is an aberrant fairytale that is just as much a horror story. Boley has a knack for dark comedy and witty prose, and he blends it with a nearly-hardboiled voice uncharacteristic of (and therefore pleasantly unique in) dark fantasy fiction. It’s a story you’ll want to tear ass through but will equally want to slow down for, so you can savor the prose.”
—Brady Allen, author of Back Roads & Frontal Lobes

“In 1912, the Brothers Grimm published an old Geman fairy tale they titled Snow White. Little did they know that a guy named Rob Boley would come along a hundred years later to reveal the ‘true’ and adult story of Ms. White, or ‘Snow’ as she was known in real life… No one could have possibly foreseen what would become of Snow in the hands of a diabolical, maniacal imagination like Boley’s… Such a nice boy… with such a fevered mind. Read this with the lights on and a baseball bat or shotgun handy… you’re gonna be glad you did. This is a Snow White you ain’t gonna find in the middle school library… Get it, read it, and try to keep the screaming down.”
—Les Edgerton, author of Hooked, Just Like That, and The Bitch

That Risen Snow and That Wicked Apple make a deliciously diabolical tale—part Walking Dead, part turned-on-its-ear fairy tale. Rob Boley strikes the perfect balance of depth, drama, and dark humor to keep readers devouring the pages and leave them hungering for more.
—Linda Gerber, author of the Death By Bikini Mysteries
