[September 21st] Candle in the Attic

I've a brand new anthology, I'd like to sink my teeth into, which is now hot off the press from the ever so wonderful Innsmouth Free Press.

Candle in the Attic Window, our Gothic horror anthology, has officially arrived. We offer 27 poems and short stories inspired by Gothic themes from: Don D’Ammassa, Jesse Bullington, James S. Dorr, Leanna Renee Hieber, Paul Jessup, Ann K. Schwader, E. Catherine Tobler, Colleen Anderson, and many more.

The power has gone out and all that remains is the glow of a flickering candle. Come up into the attic and uncover some secrets: a vampire who feeds on something other than blood, the lover who returns from the dead, a cursed German industrial complex, a movie crew shooting a documentary in an old abandoned house, and a vengeful mummy.

The anthology also features a moody Philipino inspired story by the talented Theresa Bazelli. It's a real chiller and Bazelli barely tapped into her full Asian WTF-ary dominion over horror. I'll be munching over my copy soon enough.
