About

My Peculiar Family – Celebrations is the second anthology of unusual original tales like none ever published before! This volume combines many well known and emerging writers who have been on Sci-Fi Saturday Night and unites them, writing together in a shared universe to discover the lost family of Chyna Dale. What makes this series so original is the fictional family of Chyna Dale. When she discovers a box of old tintype photos in her attic, her quest becomes finding out who they are. Each picture features a mysterious portrait of a single person. Who are these people? What are their stories? What makes them so … peculiar? Each author had to answer these questions in their unique tale. All of the authors received one of Chyna Dale’s tintypes, a name for the photographed person, and a celebration of some sort. Some of the stories are more on the horror side, some more paranormal, some science-fiction/fantasy, but all are linked together by Chyna Dale’s family. Donate today to read the most peculiar family history ever written!
