My friend Selena Chambers‘ collection is out today! Calls for Submission is long-awaited for some of us, and I hope you’ll take a look and see if it’s something you might like. You may have seen her work in a bunch of places, including most recently at LitHub: “The Women Surrealists Helping Me Through Our New Political Reality.” If you want to find more on this book today, the hashtag #CFSBOOK should be popping up around the internets. Check it out, y’all:
This spring I gave a paper at ICFA37 about the life of horror fiction after the boom of 1970-1995, wherein I talked about different waves of authors, nomenclatures of horror, and about the appearance of books like Paul Tremblay’s A Head Full of Ghosts. That paper has been revised and slightly expanded for publication as “The Life and Afterlife of Horror Fiction,” and you can read it over at Postscripts to Darkness.
Looking for a more cinematic flavor of horror, but text-y? Try Orrin Grey’s new book, Monsters from the Vault, which collects his monster movie columns from Innsmouth Free Press. I haven’t read it yet, but I did pre-order it, and Orrin on movies is always a pleasure.
Looking for a chapbook celebrating the bicentennial of Frankenstein’s conception? Coming June 18, Selena Chambers has you covered via Tallhat Press.
Looking for carnal fiction, penned by authors with the blackest of hearts? Molly Tanzer’s new mag, Congress, is alive and kicking.
