Red Tash

Publisher info

I’m Red Tash. I write dark fantasy.

What is dark fantasy? It’s a cocktail of imagery from the most secret places of your mind. It’s scary, at times funny, imaginative, and simultaneously familiar. If you like Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, or Holly Black, you like dark fiction.

I have written fiction and poetry as long as I can remember. I hope you like it.

The enigmatic Red Tash has created a compelling, multi-layered - and fully nuanced - modern fairytale, full of pop reference and varied philosophical allusions. This Brilliant Darkness is smart, thrilling, funny and full of great characters tangled in the kind of small-town webs Stephen King revels in. Excellent writing from a writer to watch. One of the best new writers I've read in years. ~A.H.

  • The Hole Between Mine and Yours: Liquid Logic from a Dirty Tumbler on Aug. 21, 2011

    Christina's work here is evocative of that 2 am conversation you have with your best friend, when you're both smoking cigarettes and mixing together whatever's left of the booze. At turns wistful, sexy, lonesome, and empowered, Christina's poems are songs from a beautifully jaded heart. Yearning, triumphant, dirty, and smart. Well done.
