Corpus Press Cover Reveal for In Darkness, Delight: Fear the Future

Today over at The Horror Oasis, Andrew “The Book Dad” revealed the cover for a new Corpus Press volume I’m honored to be part of: In Darkness Delight: Fear the Future!

My story “Schroedinger’s Head” made it into the blurb right beside some major talents! Here’s more:

“In Darkness, Delight: Fear the Future, edited by Andrew Lennon and Evans Light, delivers twenty-two strikingly original tales of terror from Bram Stoker Award® winners, best-selling authors, and rising talent in the genre – even a world-renowned celebrity is part of the lineup.

Fans of television’s Black Mirror are sure to enjoy Emmy winning and New York Times best-selling author Penn Jillette’s (of Penn & Teller fame) delightfully wicked short story “The Pain Doctor,” which was adapted for the Netflix hit series and is available here exclusively for the first time in book format.

Be warned: these are not science fiction stories with a dash of dread. These are visions of the horrifying futures that may await us all.

Lisa Morton, six-time Bram Stoker Award® winner, gets things off to a strong start with the chilling “Airborne,” while Max Booth III (whose film We Need to Do Something is set for theatrical release later this year) shines a light on the madness of modern technology with the ever-escalating “Noise.” Two-time Bram Stoker Award® winner Eric J. Guignard creates magic of his own with shimmering prose in the dreamlike “If I Drive Before I Wake.”

Michael Laimo, author of the bestsellers Deep in the Darkness and Lost Souls, turns the wonders of childbirth inside-out with the grotesque “Err.” Joanna Koch, Shirley Jackson Award finalist and rising star of all things bizarre, delivers the goods in their unique style with “Schroedinger’s Head.” Stories by Tim Curran and William Miekle show the genre favorites at the top of their game, and the list goes on, even including some first-publication authors so talented you won’t be able to pick them out from the more established.

These stories have been selected by the editors from over two million words worth of prose submitted from authors all over the world, enough stories to fill twenty-five volumes. These tales were specifically chosen for inclusion because, together, they offer a perfectly balanced blend of style, substance and diversity of themes. In Darkness, Delight: Fear the Future is a collection you don’t want to miss.”

In Darkness, Delight: Fear the Future is scheduled for worldwide release on
September 14, 2021, and will be available in e-book, paperback, and hardcover editions.

You can preorder the book HERE.
