Oldstyle Tales is not solely interested in
the speculative fiction of past generations, and centuries;
we also invest in the future of our broad and expanding genre.
Every year Michael writes two or three spook tales in a feature called "A Ghost Story for Hallowe'en." M. R. James was famous for his annual weird stories, which became a Cambridge tradition. Whether you read Michael's yearly stories, write your own, or

NOTE: We are not currently accepting submissions for "The Yellow Booke"
If you want to contribute to the weird and the horrible, we would love to help with that too. The Yellow Booke is an annual (or biannual, depending on the year) publication for living writers -- amateurs, professionals, and fans alike -- to showcase their speculative
fiction and critical reviews. Horror, weird tales, dark fantasy, ghost stories,
psychological terror, and supernaturalism are all welcome, as are any
short essays examining your favorite horror stories.
R E A D P A S T E D I T I O N S:
Culled in part from his many contributions to "The Yellow Booke," we are honored to offer a slight collection of the off-beat stories of Thomas Olivieri. The stories, poems, commentary, and images in this slight collection have been designed to return you to those strange old times. They are not particularly horrific or terrifying -- rather, they are uneasy, uncanny, and gently unsettling, harkening back to the folklore of fairies and saints, knights and dragons, mead halls and castles, masquerades and Hallow-Mass gatherings.
