About James Dorr
Past Bram Stoker Award(R) nominee James Dorr combines the charm of a gentleman born in the US South with the wiles of a near-New York City upbringing, the canniness of a one-time New England resident, and the guile of an outwardly stolid Midwesterner, or so he says. It is known that he was born in Florida, grew up in New Jersey, went to college in Massachusetts, and currently lives in Indiana where he harbors a Goth cat named Triana. He is a short story writer and poet working mainly in dark fantasy and horror with forays into science fiction and mystery, an active member of HWA and SFWA, and has previously worked as a technical writer for an academic computing center, associate editor on a city magazine, a nonfiction freelance writer, and a semi-professional Renaissance musician.

"Hardcore horror that ranges from the socially relevant to the scatologically repulsive—the shock here is like 'The Scream' made flesh." — Mort Castle, editor of On Writing Horror: A Handbook by the Horror Writers Association
"In Zippered Flesh 3, Editor Weldon Burge has done a masterful job of combining work from well-known masters like Jack Ketchum and Graham Masterton with newer writers. But it is the original work by newcomers like L.L. Soares and Meghan Acuri that stands out for me. ... Highly recommended." — Gene O'Neill, author of The Hitchhiking Effect: A Retrospective Collection
"'Closer by Charles Colyott is a wonderfully poignant and romantic story. ... 'Going Green' by Christine Morgan is so original, timely, and well-written it deserves special mention. ... Kudos to Burge for putting together another fine anthology of cutting-edge fiction." — Paul Dale Anderson, author of The Instruments of Death series
