New Anthology Release!!! A WORLD OF HORROR

New Anthology Release!!! A WORLD OF HORROR

IT’S HERE!!!! Release Day today for one of the most highly anticipated anthologies of my life, A WORLD OF HORROR, which is an anthology of all new dark and speculative fiction stories written by authors from around the world.


Every nation of the globe has unique tales to tell, whispers that settle in through the land, creatures or superstitions that enliven the night, but rarely do readers get to experience such a diversity of these voices in one place as in A World of Horror, the latest anthology book created by award-winning editor Eric J. Guignard, and beautifully illustrated by artist Steve Lines.

Enclosed within these pages are twenty-two all-new dark and speculative fiction stories written by authors from around the world that explore the myths and monsters, fables and fears of their homelands.

•   In “The Wife Who Didn’t Eat,” a modest Japanese farmer’s prayer to the gods comes true . . . much to his dismay.

•   In “Things I Do For Love,” the intertwined lives in an Indonesian village are upended by as diabolical and otherworldly a device as a simple whisper.

•   In “Mutshidzi,” an African teen must raise her brother and run the household after their mother dies. But there is so much to do . . .

•   In “Sick Cats in Small Spaces,” a vacationing Australian family come upon a ghost town where the actual ghosts are bottled and kept.

Also encounter the haunting things that stalk those radioactive forests outside Chernobyl in Ukraine; sample the curious dishes one may eat in Canada; beware the veldt monster that mirrors yourself in Uganda; or simply battle mountain trolls alongside Alfred Nobel in Sweden. These stories and more are found within A World of Horror.

Enter and discover, truly, there’s no place on the planet devoid of frights, thrills, and wondrous imagination!
