An anthology of horror and dark fantasy stories, along with psychological and literary commentary, that explores the relationship and inspiration between fiction and the five senses.

Edited by Eric J. Guignard, with Psychological Commentary

Insanely exciting news for the week!! The latest anthology I’ve created is finally available! This one encountered some delays, a couple false starts, but I believe the wait was worth it, as it’s here now and is PACKED with absolutely amazing content!!

THE FIVE SENSES OF HORROR: An anthology of horror and dark fantasy stories, along with psychological and literary commentary, that explores the relationship and inspiration between fiction and the five senses.

I’ve got academic and psychological insight, along with gorgeous gothic illustrations relating to the interaction of our senses and to dark fiction, how it inspires us, how our brain reacts to it, and how this can (and is) used to craft immersive fiction stories that relate to us in meaningful and exciting ways.
