ANNOUNCING NEW ANTHOLOGY: "The Five Senses of Horror"

Behold and tremble (in anticipation!), O horror short form fans!

Finished acquisitions and contracts for my next anthology, a reprint volume of the five human senses in horror: THE FIVE SENSES OF HORROR

Including mind-numbingly gorgeous illustrations from artist, Nils BroƟ.
