About Christine Morgan
Christine Morgan divides her writing time among many genres, from horror to historical, from superheroes to smut, anything in between and combinations thereof. She's a future crazy-cat-lady and a longtime gamer, who enjoys British television, cheesy action/disaster movies, cooking and crafts. Which latter two led the Bizzong! podcast to refer to her as "The Martha Stewart of extreme horror," so, make of that what you will!
Her short stories have appeared in dozens of anthologies, as well as the collections The Raven's Table and The Wolf's Feast (Viking-themed horror and dark fantasy) and Dawn of the Living-Impaired And Other Messed Up Zombie Stories (zombies, obviously). She also shares the pages of Visceral, a collection of body horror, with Patrick C. Harrison III. More collections are due out in 2022.
Her latest novels include the deep-sea chompy Trench Mouth, the historical pioneer blizzard snow monstery White Death, the Splatterpunk Award winning Lakehouse Infernal (sequel upcoming!), the totally trashy Spermjackers From Hell, and the hard-to-categorize Birthright. Her novella, The Night Silver River Run Red, is part of Death's Head Press' Splatter Western line.
She also takes on editing and proofreading gigs, was a regular contributor to The Horror Fiction Review for many years and now posts reviews semi-regularly to her blog, has twice earned an Honorable Mention from Ellen Datlow in the Year's Best series, and has had various works nominated for the Splatterpunk Awards.
Christine recently gave up her long-term work in the field of residential psych and moved from Portland, Oregon to the Los Angeles area, where she is now her mother's full-time live-in caregiver, while still trying to get some writing done. She is always glad to hear from readers, as well as other authors (and hey, agents, publishers, movie people, it's all good!)

Fathom Five … a state-of-the-art oceanic research facility, suspended far below the surface. There, in the dark and the deep, a team of top-notch scientists study the ecosystems and denizens of an aquatic environment as alien as another planet.
There, they also conduct illicit experiments upon hapless human subjects, with the goal of giving our species a chance to adapt to a changing world. Or, at the very least, to create mutant freaky fish-people, because, why not?
Oh, the arrogance and hubris of genius! Oh, the freaky things that already dwell in the strange, hostile depths! In the cold, crushing, silent pressure of a blackness lit only by eerie bioluminescence. Things that don’t take kindly to intruders Things that are ancient, and enormous, and hungry.
Things like … TRENCH MOUTH.Think Sea Lab of Dr. Moreau meets Jersey Shore, plus enough gore and body parts to fill entire coal hoppers; add to that, Morgan’s uniquely visual style that rams it all in our faces in glorious Technicolor.
—Ed Lee, White Trash Gothic
This is exactly the kind of book I love. Supersonic pacing. Blood spilled on every page. A grisly weird-science techno-thriller set in the crushing stygian darkness, Morgan’s Trench Mouth lures you in and leaves you gasping.
—Lee Murray, three-time Bram Stoker nominee, and author of Into the Mist
I have some friends and we had a crazy idea: let’s summon a demon. Not just any demon but a sexy devil chick that will do anything we want—even butt stuff. It’ll be easy. It’s not like it’s going to work. Monsters aren’t real.
We were wrong. Really fucking wrong.
The demon is not what we thought and it’s making horrible things happen. People are cutting into each other's junk, some guy is fucking his dog, and sex slugs from Hell are raping us and stealing our semen in order to build a goddamn hive!
We didn’t mean for any of this. But we’re gonna fix it... Just after a few more beers and bong hits.
From Christine Morgan, author of Mythic Lust: the Minotaur, and The Raven’s Table: Viking Stories, comes a sleazy and deviant satire about sex, occultism, and nerd culture.
Lake Misquamicus was an unremarkable lake in Florida, unremarkable that is until suddenly it was filled with six billion gallons of blood, bile, pus, piss, shit and ...things... directly from the pits of Hell. First the public was in shock, then the government built a wall, and as time passed it became another urban legend. But for some, it has become a travel destination. Spring-breakers, drug-runners, and religious nuts. But a weekend getaway on the shores of Hell, may not be the safest idea...
With an introduction by and officially endorsed by splatterpunk legend Edward Lee, LAKEHOUSE INFERNAL is an official entree in Lee's infamous INFERNAL series. Christine Morgan (SPERMJACKERS FROM HELL) expands on this universe with her own twist of hardcore horror tourism.
"Think Spring Break, only instead of a beach house, it’s a lakehouse, but the lakehouse IS IN FUCKIN’ HELL, that’s right, a chunk of Hell that’s been upheaved and pushed up into our pretty little world–sunny Florida, no less!” - Edward Lee
The skald pauses her tale. Time passes in heartbeats. Every sound echoes, continues a fragment of the story. The crash of distant waves invokes the whale-road, long ships traveling its path, their sides covered with brightly painted shields. The creak of ropes reminds you of Jormungandr, the Midgard Serpent, the world wrapped in its scaly embrace. Faraway wolves howl and call, echoing along the path to Niflheim, Hel's realm of the dead.
The skald gives you a knowing glance, then takes a drink of her mead before continuing. And then, her voice: low and sonorous, musical and rhythmic, begins once again to weave the tapestry, telling tales of heroism and horror, glory and loss. She sings of heroes and everyday folk, tricksters and tale-tellers, standing tall and facing gods and monsters. Vikings!
For more than a decade, author Christine Morgan's Viking stories have delighted readers and critics, standing apart from the anthologies they appeared in. Now, Word Horde brings you The Wolf's Feast, a new collection of Christine Morgan's Vikings, from "The Viking in Yellow" to "Odin's Eagle" and beyond. These tales of adventure, fantasy, and horror will be sure to rouse your inner Viking.
Not as if they'd be allowed to attend otherwise, not with parents and preacher and schoolmarm all disapproving. But how often does a chance like this come along? There isn't much else by way of excitement in quiet, peaceful Silver River, a once-prosperous boom town slowly gone bust.
Worth risking a whipping, sure. Worth risking life and limb, and maybe more? Worth risking being ripped to pieces by ravenous, inhuman brutes? Worth crossing paths with those strange, silent cult-folk from the high valley? Worth all the fire and bloodshed and horror and death?
Because something far worse than any ordinary traveling show has come to town, and one thing is for certain: those who survive, if any, will never forget the night Silver River run red.
(All Splatter Western books are stand-alone stories. Read them in whatever order you please!)
Situated on a picturesque, wooded island in Puget Sound, the medieval-themed village of Tintagel offers tourists the opportunity to take a step back in time. To observe and experience life as it was in an idealized yesteryear of knights and ladies, feasts, jousts, crafts, and tournaments.
Those who call the place home take their roles seriously. Very seriously, as Marie will discover. Far too seriously. Because there’s more to Tintagel than may appear. It has its secrets, its ancient and dark and dangerous secrets.
Secrets all too ready to lay claim to her children, who cannot escape the pull of their…
For many, that word alone induces the chills. Already, some of you can feel eight hairy legs crawling along your skin. Did you just brush at something that wasn’t there?
This collection of twisted tales have been spun for the sole intent of making you shiver and see things moving out of the corner of your eye. Can you make it to the end?
