Editorial Reviews


"Powerhouse anthology" 
—Publishers Weekly 

"This triumphant conclusion to Matthews' trilogy is a must add to all collections.... Compelling Horror stories on their own, but gathered together, they hold a power, one that will break readers, opening their eyes to a truth we are all facing, something that only the very best Horror is capable of."
—The Library Journal, Starred Review

"I absolutely loved and devoured this book. Haunting, powerful, and chilling. I can not stress enough how much you need this on your shelves."
—The Wandering Reader

"A phenomenal collection of addiction stories, written by a list of authors who qualify for a who's who of dark fictions best"
—Char's Horror Corner

"Memorable, visceral, cutting stories that will resonate with horror fans."  
—Booklist, Starred Review

From the Author

Orphans of Bliss is the third and final anthology of Addiction Horror from Wicked Run Press. Here's what's inside: 

KEALAN PATRICK BURKE—You Wait For It, Like It Waits For You
Bram Stoker Award winning author of Turtle Boy, Kin, and Sour Candy, and one of the best writers in the genre. Kealan's work is the lead story in all three addiction horror anthologies, each existing within the same universe. He's done nothing less than create an addiction-fueled, fever dream mythos.

SA COSBYOne Last Blast
The New York Times best-selling author of Razorblade Tears and Blacktop Wasteland. His unmistakable, powerful voice, tells a story of a new blend of meth that overruns a rural town.

Locus Award Finalist and USA Today Best-Selling writer of 
Nothing But Blackened Teeth. Khaw's amazing prose is on full display in her story about an adult child haunted by the ghost of her substance abusing father.

JOHN FD TAFFHuddled Masses, Yearning to Breathe free
Two-time Bram Stoker Award finalist, Taff has been the backbone for the addiction horror series. In
Huddled Masses, a heroin addict puts down the needles but his character defects pile high in his cellar. You've never seen a hoarder's episode like this.

CHRISTA CARMENThrough the Looking Glass and Straight Into Hell
Carmen's debut story collection won the Indie Horror Book Award for Best Debut Collection. Readers are in for a shock when they follow an addict down the rabbit hole in a treatment center. Simply one of the best stories of the series.

Author of Coyote Songs and nominated for a Bram Stoker award for his work in Lullabies for Suffering. This time, he's created a dystopian world where a drug called 
Gravedust impacts the most disenfranchised. A super-charged story that only Gabino could write.

Splatterpunk Award-winning author of the novel True Crime which took readers by storm. Her tale is about a character who constantly craving a new identity with perpetual consumption to fill her empty spaces.

JOSH MALERMANA Solid Black Lighthouse on a Pier in the Cryptic
New York Times Best Selling writer of Bird Box. His story is a King Midas type tale for those who can never seem to drink enough.

KATHE KOJASingularity
Author of the legendary novel, The Cipher. Koja's short, mystical, piece captures the obsessive nature of addiction in her trademark shocking, speculative style

The editor of all three anthologies, his story is the funeral of sorts to this addiction horror theme—but then again, in horror, nothing stays dead forever.
*Orphans of Bliss now contains the Bonus Novella: Milk-Blood.
