The Old and the New

What begins as a tourist vacation for Rebecca and John becomes something darker when John finds the body of his missing wife buried amongst the bones of the catacombs beneath Paris. From Aurora Award-winner Helen Marshall’s Hair Side, Flesh Side, this short story is one of a set of fifteen quirky and cutting parables about history, memory, and the cost of creating art.

ChiZine Publications (CZP) curates the best of the bizarre, bringing you the most excitingly weird, subtle, dark, and disturbing literary fiction. Look for more titles in the ChiZine short stories collection to build your digital library.


Helen Marshall’s debut collection Hair Side, Flesh Side earned her praise as “the new face of horror” (January Magazine). Her work has been nominated for the Aurora Award from the Canadian Society of Science Fiction and Fantasy, the Bram Stoker Award from the Horror Writers Association, and the Sydney J. Bounds Award from the British Fantasy Society, which she won in 2013.
