Werewolves stalk the night in this anthology of lycanthrope-themed short fiction featuring many of today’s most renowned voices in horror and fantasy.

The first touch of moonlight transforms the kindly, sad-eyed stranger into something else — something vicious, terrible, and beyond the reach of reason. The curse has taken hold. From fog-shrouded heaths and urban mazes to fantastic realms and unsettling futurescapes, the werewolves are on the prowl. . . .

With stories from such world-renowned voices in horror and fantasy as Peter S. Beagle, Ramsey Campbell, Nancy A. Collins, Jonathan Carroll, Charles de Lint, Harlan Ellison®, Neil Gaiman, Joe R. Lansdale, Tanith Lee, Ursula K. Le Guin, George R. R. Martin, Michael Moorcock, and Gene Wolfe, Curse of the Full Moon presents a remarkable collection of works that examine the legend of the werewolf from a wide variety of insightful and inventive perspectives. The battle against the beast within can create heroes or horrors, and only the light of the full moon reveals which it is that you face: your savior or your doom.

What is it about the cat that captivates the creative imagination? No other creature has inspired so many authors to take pen to page. Mystery, horror, science fiction, and fantasy stories have all been written about cats.

From legendary editor Ellen Datlow comes Tails of Wonder and Imagination, showcasing forty cat tales by some of today’s most popular authors.

Beagle, Elizabeth Hand, Dennis Danvers, and Theodora Goss and a previously unpublished story by Susanna Clarke, plus feline-centric fiction by Neil Gaiman, Kelly Link, George R. R. Martin, Lucius Shepard, Joyce Carol Oates, Graham Joyce, Catherynne M. Valente, Michael Marshall Smith, and many others.

Tails of Wonder and Imagination features more than 200,000 words of stories in which cats are heroes and stories in which they’re villains; tales of domestic cats, tigers, lions, mythical part-cat beings, people transformed into cats, cats transformed into people. And yes, even a few cute cats.

  • The Puma – Theodora Goss

Whispers about Tails of Wonder and Imagination

“… an assortment of 40 stories by authors who are for the most part willing to take cats on their own ground. Datlow avoids the trap of a too-narrow premise: though there appears to be a slight bias toward horror, the stories are various within that field, from Jack Ketchum’s ghost story “Returns to Michaela”, Roessner’s highly scientific “Mieze Corrects an Incomplete Representation of Reality” and Edward Bryant’s brilliantly repellent “Bean Bag Cat”. Other tales are amusing, like Lawrence Block’s “The Burglar Takes a Cat”, or gently sentimental, like Dennis Danvers’s “Healing Benjamin”. This is that rarity of rarities: an anthology of cat stories worth reading.” — Publishers Weekly

New Release – Morbid Curiosity Cures the Blues

Posted by Dark Whisperer on September 17, 2009

mc_blues_coverMorbid Curiosity Cures the Blues

Editor: Loren Rhoads

Publisher: Scribner

Release Date: September 29th, 2009

ISBN-10: 1439124663
ISBN-13: 978-1439124666

Editor Website

A collection of the editor’s favorite pieces from the cult nonfiction magazine Morbid Curiosity.

For ten years, Morbid Curiosity was a one-of-a-kind underground magazine that gained a devoted following for its celebration of absurd, grotesque, and unusual tales – all true — submitted from contributors around the country and across the world. Loren Rhoads, creator and editor of the magazine, has compiled her favorite stories from all ten issues in this sometimes shocking, occasionally gruesome, always fascinating, anthology.

This quirky book is filled with tales from ordinary people — who just happen to have eccentric, sometimes peculiar interests. Ranging from the outrageous (attending a Black Mass, fishing bodies out of San Francisco Bay, making fake snuff films), to the more “mundane” (visiting a torture museum and tracking real vampires), this curiously enjoyable collection of stories, complete with illustrations and informative asides, will entertain and haunt readers long after the final page is turned.

Whispers about Morbid Curiosity Cures the Blues

“A truly compelling collection of human oddities that pays pitch-perfect tribute to the magazine that first spawned them.” – Monica Kuebler, Rue Morgue Magazine

“Nietzsche famously said that if you stare long enough into the abyss, the abyss stares back into you. Here the abyss is poking back at you with a very sharp stick. Morbid Curiosity Cures the Blues — a testament to all that ever was great about the underground press — will crack through your armor, pry under your scales, and break through your numb envelope of reality to remind you what you’re really made of. You’ll shudder and cringe and laugh along the way, but the sheer gravity and humanity of every true story in this book will more than satisfy your morbid curiosity: it will change how you see the world for good. Until you die, anyway.” – Michael Arnzen, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Goreletter

“It’s a cliché that truth is stranger than fiction, but this compendium of real-life accounts of the bizarre, horrific and just-plain-freaky proves it. From cavorting around the Far East looking for natural hallucinogens to getting trapped in the remains of a WWII gas chamber to working in an animal experiment lab to the unflinching account of an apparently fatal car vs. biker accident, Morbid Curiosity Cures The Blues is a lot like said accident — once its astonishing stories of life beyond the mundane catch your eye, you simply can’t look away. This is a collection you’ll never forget.” – John Everson, author of Sacrifice and The 13th

New Release – Sha’Daa: Tales of the Apocalypse

Posted by Dark Whisperer on August 15, 2009

Sha'DaaSha’Daa: Tales of the Apocalypse

Authors: Michael H. Hanson and Edward F. McKeown

Publisher: Altered Dimensions Press

Release Date: May 1st, 2009

ISBN-10: 0982135246
ISBN-13: 978-0982135242

Author Website

Once every 10,000 years comes The Sha’Daa, a two-day stretch of time when evil is permitted to cross the dimensional barriers and attack the Earth. This shared-world anthology is a collection of exciting and frightening tales which all combine to tell an epic account that runs the gamut from true soul-shaking horror to wry and ironic takes on the end of reality as we know it. Unlikely heroes in unusual locations around the globe battle not only for their own survival, but for all of humanity. Fortunately we are not entirely on our own. Strange allies lurk in the shadows and cracks of space and time. Strangest of them all is “The Salesman,” a mysterious figure with many names and faces, doomed to travel the Earth for thousands of years, trading in artifacts and favors, forever plotting and scheming in his seemingly doomed effort to thwart The Sha’Daa.

10,000 years have passed since the last Sha’Daa, a stretch of time so long that even the legends of it have faded from mankind’s collective memory. For ten millennium demons and monsters have been nothing more than folktales, relegated to obscure campfire orations which we no longer pay heed. But make no mistake. The hell realms endure. And their innumerable denizens slaver with hatred, lusting for human blood. And now their time has come. Are you ready for The Sha’Daa?

Table of Contents:

  • Foreword | Mike Resnick
  • Akasa/Interludes I-X/Prana/Xenogenesis | Michael H. Hanson
  • The Dive | Edward F. McKeown
  • Tunguska Outpact | Deborah Koren
  • Lava Lovers | Wilson “Pete” Marsh
  • The Way of The Warrior | Arthur Sanchez
  • Breaking Even | Jamie Schmidt
  • Dixie Chrononauts | D.R. MacMaster
  • The Great Nyuk-Nyuk | Adrienne Ray
  • Talking Heads | Nancy Jackson
  • The Seventh Continent | Lee Ann Kuruganti
  • The Salesman | Rob Adams

Whispers about Sha’Daa: Tales of the Apocalypse

Sha’Daa: Tales of the Apocalypse is an end of the world book like no other I have read before. The anthology was written by various authors whose tales weave together into a seamless novel, rather than a collection of related stories. Every ten thousand years the veils between the dimensions weaken for a 48 hour period and hellish monsters attempt to invade the Earth and transform it into their own version of Hell. This time period is known as the Sha’Daa. The tales featured in the anthology are diverse and strikingly different but they play off one another very well, and together they tell the story of how humanity and the forces of good struggle to prevent the evil of the Sha’Daa from spreading to our world. All in all, Sha’Daa: Tales of the Apocalypse is a book any fan of “end of the world fiction” must add to their library.” – Eric S. Brown, author of The War of the Worlds Plus Blood, Guts and Zombies

“Even in a field that prides itself upon being unique, Sha’Daa: Tales of the Apocalypse is a most unusual book. With a concept based on a fine story by Michael Hanson, it is not quite a round- robin novel by its many authors, but is somehow more than an anthology. Hanson…created the venue, a world visited by hideous things every ten thousand years, and wrote the bridge material between stories. This book owes a lot to H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos, but make no mistake: you will not run into adjectives like “gibbous”, “squamous” and “eldritch” every other paragraph. There’s horror here, but it’s an up-to-date 21st Century horror… and [the stories] not only all stand alone, but they also hang together because they are built around Hanson’s premise: that the Sha’Daa – that 48-hour period when the portals are open between the monsters’ dimension and our own – actually exists. In fact, there is not only a shared conceit – Sha’Daa – but also a wonderful and totally original creation known as The Salesman, who performs beautifully in a number of stories by diverse hands. If Lovecraft were around to read Sha’Daa: Tales of the Apocalypse, I think his first reaction would be annoyance (“They’re building on my concept”), followed by a giggle or two (“They had a lot of fun doing it,”), and ultimately pride (“They updated it and did it right.”) He isn’t the only one. I think Edmond Hamilton, Jack Williamson, Clark Ashton Smith, and even Robert Sheckley could see bits of their ideas or approaches here, all filtered through this band of motivated writers, and they would be just as pleased.” – Mike Resnick, Hugo and Nebula Award Winning Author of Kirinyaga and Stalking the Unicorn

Comeau

New Release – Troll’s Eye View: A Book of Villainous Tales

Posted by Dark Whisperer on April 14, 2009

trolls-eye-viewTroll’s Eye View: A Book of Villainous Tales

Editors: Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling

Publisher: Viking Juvenile

Release Date: April 16th, 2009

ISBN-10: 0670061417
ISBN-13: 978-0670061419

Editor Website

Everyone thinks they know the real story behind the villains in fairy tales – evil, no two ways about it. But the villains themselves beg to differ. In Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling’s new anthology for younger readers, you’ll hear from the Giant’s wife (“Jack and the Beanstalk”), Rumplestiltskin, the oldest of the Twelve Dancing Princesses, and many more. A stellar lineup of authors, including Garth Nix, Holly Black, Neil Gaiman and Nancy Farmer, makes sure that these old stories do new tricks!

In this follow-up to Datlow and Windling’s A Wolf at the Door and Swan Sister, the duo again amass an anthology of fairy-tale retellings, for 8-12 year olds, only this time they keep focus upon the backstories of well-known villains.

Table of Contents:

Wizard’s Apprentice | Delia Sherman
An Unwelcome Guest | Garth Nix
Faery Tales | Wendy Froud
Rags and Riches | Nina Kiriki Hoffman
Up the Down Beanstalk | Peter S. Beagle
The Shoes That Were Danced to Pieces | Ellen Kushner
Puss in Boots, the Sequel | Joseph Stanton
The Boy Who Cried Wolf | Holly Black
Troll | Jane Yolen
Castle Othello | Nancy Farmer
Skin | Michael Cadnum
A Delicate Architecture | Catherynne M. Valente
Molly | Midori Snyder
Observing the Formalities | Neil Gaiman
The Cinderella Game | Kelly Link

Whispers about Troll’s Eye View: A Book of Villainous Tales

“..retell[s] fairy tales from the point of view of fairy tale villains – the witch, the wolf, the troll, the evil fairy godmother, etc…unlocking a Pandora’s box of stories, with a few coming along at the very end proving to be the most fearsome of the whole lot. In some cases this topsy-turvy worldview results in stories which are, in style and tone, by turns humorous, whimsical, or cautionary…In a handful of cases the resulting tales are stunningly, even unsettlingly, dark and beautiful, epitomizing what fairy tale scholar Maria Tatar has described as the “beauty and terror” of fairy tales…although an inner leaf of the book lists its intended audience as grades four and up or ages nine and up, fairy tale lovers of all ages should pick up a copy.” – Green Man Review

“…very enjoyable” – Booklist

“…highly readable and thought-provoking…A solid choice, particularly where sophisticated fractured fairy tales are popular.” – School Library Journal
