The Monstrous

Go here! Buy this! Ahem...

Take a terrifying journey with literary masters of suspense, including Peter Straub, Kim Newman, and Caitlin R. Kiernan, visiting a place where the other is somehow one of us. These electrifying tales redefine monsters from mere things that go bump in the night to inexplicable, deadly reflections of our day-to-day lives. Whether it's a seemingly devoted teacher, an obsessive devotee of swans, or a diner full of evil creatures simply seeking oblivion, the monstrous is always there--and much closer than it appears.


I’m very, very happy to have a story in The Monstrous, Ellen Datlow’s latest anthology, this time from Tachyon Publications. The toc is fantastic, including Peter Straub, Kim Newman, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Livia Llewellyn, and John Langan among many others. The full toc is here:

“Datlow, horror anthologist extraordinaire, brings together all things monstrous in this excellent reprint anthology of 20 horror stories that explore the ever-widening definition of what makes a monster, with nary a misstep...(an) atmospheric and frequently terrifying collection.” Publishers Weekly

“The stories in The Monstrous are intense, with unsettling imagery that persists long after each one ends. This collection has something disturbing for everyone.” Andrea M. Pawley, Washington Independent

It's also an absolute thing of beauty, with wonderful interior illustrations by John Coulthart.
It’s available from publisher, Tachyon Publications, here
