Editorial Reviews

Review

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "Yardley's debut anthology floored me. An incredible cocktail of poetic darkness, fueled by some of the best names working today. A must-have for any horror fan."Matt Hayward, Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of What Do Monsters Fear? and A Penny For Your Thoughts
 
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 
"The stories in Arterial Bloom work in tandem, enticing the reader into rapturous melancholia. The end result is both comforting and unsettling, my favorite way to feel."—Sadie Hartmann, Cemetery Dance  

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 
"For a horror anthology that represents back-to-back literary prowess and diversity, filled with stories that are brooding and beautiful, Arterial Bloom more than fits the bill."D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review.
 
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 
"It starts with the title, Arterial Bloom--a release of crimson power, turning into something else entirely--blossoming and expanding, changing shape. These stories are transformative, mixing horror and wonder, in equal amounts. Mercedes Yardley, and Crystal Lake, have an aesthetic that haunts the reader, getting under your skin, burrowing in, and calling you home. Always lyrical, always powerful, this anthology will shine some light into the darkness, but beware the moment the beam starts to flicker."Richard Thomas, author of Disintegration and Breaker, past Bram Stoker, Shirley Jackson, and Thriller award nominee 
 
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 
"Arterial Bloom injects the 'literary' piece into the horror genre with works that excel in well-crafted surprises, powerful senses of place and character, and works that stand out from the crowd."Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review.
