Visit a field where living corpses grow from the ground like pumpkins. Sail across a sea of blood on a raft made from human skin.

Torn Realities is not the typical Lovecraft Cthulhu anthology. This book deals with Lovecraft's themes of forbidden knowledge, the idea that we are essentially untethered from the workaday world. It explores lunacy-inducing creatures predating the dawn of man- keeping Lovecraft’s most famous theme (the idea of mind-boggling other gods) more general.

Jeani Rector and the Horror Zine have compiled another classic anthology of unsettling and stomach-churning tales in the tradition of Pan Books or Weird Tales, and introduced us to a motley band of new horror talent, some of whom will no doubt become household names in the genre in time. This unrepentant volume reminds us why the small press is such a force in dark literature.

In the era of sparkling vampires, lovelorn werewolves, and fallen guardian angels, the idea of romance and fear has gotten a little muddy. Mon Cœur Mort aims to clear the water some. The foundation of horror fiction is built upon fear. No greater fear exists than the loss of someone or something dear. Just as the stories may touch your heart, they might just rip it out of your chest.
