SCREECH – A Collection of Paranormal Stories

What to expect from our Paranormal Release


From the unspeakable acts of necromancy, to a malicious spirit seeking retribution from beyond the grave, ‘Screech’ is the very first of its kind – pushing the boundaries of disturbing, skin-crawling horror.
We at Severance Publications always seek to push the limits on what’s deemed morally acceptable in the literature business. ‘Screech’ is another major publication in that direction – this is a book you’ll struggle to put down. As with all of our publications, ‘Screech’ is crafted in such a way that it maintains its impact during daytime reading on public transport, as well as ensuring you’ll feel as though someone is watching you while you sleep.
The paranormal theme is one that permits a fair amount of diversity in its story lines. We have consolidated a collection of stories which range from the hauntingly unquestionable supernatural, to the unbearable struggle between nightmare and reality.
For all of our devoted followers on social media, we have included a list below with a brief synopsis of each story featured in ‘Screech’, in no particular order.
