"Sara Tantlinger has just sent a Valentine's present to your funeral. Seduction is a slaughterhouse in "Love for Slaughter" -- the first poetry book from this brilliantly evocative and subversively disturbing new horror writer -- a woman dead set on beheading Cupid and reminding us all how weird love really is. From the charm of the corpse to the beauty of butchery, Tantlinger's poems roil with dangerous desire and are relentlessly provocative -- satanically sultry stuff that you won't be able to stop reading."
-Michael Arnzen, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Proverbs for Monsters and The Gorelets Omnibus
"Sara Tantlinger's Love for Slaughter is full of dark moments of exquisite beauty. She is particularly adept at making even the bleakest of sentiments sound sensual and captivating. Full of clever wordplay, haunting rhythms, and excellent phrasing, Tantlinger's work is a must for readers who like their poetry with a side of sexy gloom."
-K.W. Taylor, author of The Curiosity Killers

Mainstream publishers want all-star lineups. Small press publishers often can’t afford to pay pro rates…and even when they can, the names in the table of contents can be limited by the editor’s reach or effort. Bestselling horror, fantasy, and thriller authors Christopher Golden and James A. Moore knew there had to be a better way. Inspired by the efforts of legendary anthology Charles L. Grant, who helped move so many new writers in the horror community’s conversation, Golden and Moore teamed up with Haverhill House’s Twisted Publishing imprint to create…
THE TWISTED BOOK OF SHADOWS
Determined to pay pro rates, the editors crowdfunded the project, and then put the word out as far and wide as possible, loudly and repeatedly encouraging submissions by diverse voices, and recruiting a stellar editorial committee to read along with them, including Linda A. Addison, Nadia Bulkin, Rachel Autumn Deering, Lamar Giles, KL Pereira, and Lee Thomas.
Out of seven hundred stories received through a blind submission process—none of the editors had any idea who the authors were—nineteen made the final cut. Within these pages you will find the beautifully weird side-by-side with terrifying nightmares, horrifying folklore, and hellish futures. Nineteen unique and haunting tales that truly earned their place in a book entitled…
