Horror Without Victims
Editor’s post-publication commentary continued from: HERE – AND IT CONTINUES BELOW IN THIS PAGE’S COMMENT STREAM AS AND WHEN EACH STORY IS RE-READ.
From 2001, the paying writer's market of MEGAZANTHUS PRESS (NEMONYMOUS / ZENCORE / CONE ZERO / CERN ZOO / NULL IMMORTALIS / THE HORROR ANTHOLOGY OF HORROR ANTHOLOGIES) has previously published 184 original stories by various authors. ’The First Book of Classical Horror Stories’ – containing 21 brand new stories – follows in this tradition and was first published on 2nd July 2012.
This is sold on Amazon (but if you require a copy signed by DFL please see Orders link above):
Editor's biased appraisal: A basic reasonably priced paperback in the tradition of the Small Press of yesteryear, with its mixture of good-hearted and potential characterful 'idiosyncracies'. And 21 new stories by great authors grouped together in retro paper print only (forever). The stories will be appreciated whether or not you enjoy Classical Music. I think the book-cover works even better in real life than when shown on-line. Details of the book's contents below.
An anthology of Horror Stories by various authors on the theme of Classical Music. Shown below are the titles and authors of its twenty-one stories, in the book’s running order and split between the total 82084 wordage.
