Heavy Metal Horror Fiction Is Here

March 31, 2014 at 3:37 pm 2 comments

Heavy metal and horror go together like blood and guts. Unfortunately, it’s a combination that doesn’t come to life in fiction nearly often enough. The new book Axes of Evil, out now from Diabolus In Musica/Chupa Cabra House, is here to remedy that problem.

Axes Of Evil

The book features my new story, “Ex-Punk,” which takes a tangent away from metal and into the world of punk rock basement shows. An old been-there-done-that punk gets a taste of something new, and she never wants to let it go. I’m psyched that my story appears alongside so many new pieces by great authors like Lucy Taylor, who wrote one of my favorite collections of extreme horror short stories, Unnatural Acts.
