This is going to be less of a review and more of a cautionary tale about a book that crosses lines and obliterates boundaries with abandon.
We present a second review of this landmark horror anthology compiled by the editor of Cemetery Dance Magazine to mark its 25th anniversary.
A collection of new powerhouse tales from legendary names like Stephen King and Clive Barker, Chizmar's anthology celebrates the 25th anniversary of his esteemed horror literary magazine, Cemetery Dance.
The late Rick Hautala's friend and fellow writer Christopher Golden assembled this second anthology as a tribute to the celebrated horror author, featuring tales by Clive Barker, Jack Ketchum and many more.
Jack Ketchum and Edward Lee are both masters of the erotic grotesque. Lee tends to go for the gut, figuratively and literally.
Jack Ketchum has long made a name for himself by delving into the darkest regions of human sexuality. His first novel, 1980’s Off Season, was so horrifically visceral that its publisher, Ballantine, opted against a second printing.
As often happens with art, the novella I’m Not Sam began life as something else. As Jack Ketchum tells it in his introduction to the book (currently scheduled for a Winter 2012 release from Cemetery Dance), it was originally conceived as a short story that he and his co-writer, Lucky McKee, would then adapt into a short film.
