Just in time for the Halloween season, in simultaneous hardcover, trade paperback, and Kindle release. We have a great mix of veteran writers such as Pat Cadigan and Joe Lansdale, to new writers such as Carrie Laben and John Mantooth. Styles range from the classic horror tropes and tones of Ramsey Campbell to the experimentalism of Lily Hoang.
I've published or contributed to a lot of books over the years, but this is my first interaction with a Big Six publisher, so the book should be in stores all over the country. I hope some of you check it out.

I got my author's copy of the anthology and I have to say it is AWESOME--not really because I am in it, but because it has some of the most dynamic poetry in it that I have read in some time. Frankly, I am surprised to be included. If you are a poet (or love great writing) you should get a copy of this book. I do not make a thin dime from books sold (what else is new?), so this is unbiased praise for the anthology. Check it out. You can get it from Amazon.com or pick up a copy at the reading...
