Halloween Horror Sale!
My Mythic Delirium Books micropress and I went all in on horror for 2020, and I want to emphasize that it’s the fun horror, the kind you consume for imaginative shocks and chills, not the kind that weighs on you like the stones that killed Giles Corey in The Crucible as you helplessly doomscroll through social media.
There’s lots going on this October, to say the least, but October is the month to celebrate specters, haints and Elder Things, and we at Mythic Delirium are determined to do our part. That’s why we’ve dropped the price of our three spookiest e-books down to 99 cents. And anyone who follows the directions can get a fourth e-book free. (More about how that works below.)
Let me tell you a little bit about each book.
My newest collection of horror tales and poems, Aftermath of an Industrial Accident, gathers pieces that first appeared in places like Weird Tales, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Tomorrow’s Cthulhu, Nowhereville: Tales of the Urban Weird and more. Publishers Weekly called it “nightmare fuel” in a starred review and Jeffrey Thomas, the creator of Punktown, calls it “an overflowing cornucopia of monstrous goodness.”
Our newest anthology, A Sinister Quartet, brings more dancers to the macabre masquerade, with World Fantasy Award winner C. S. E. Cooney leading with a short novel of sacrifice and revolution, “The Twice-Drowned Saint”; Jessica P. Wick weaving a scary fairyland tale, “An Unkindness”; Amanda J. McGee retelling a French folktale as a chilling Gothic nightmare in “Viridian”; closing with my own novella of sorcery and body horror, “The Comforter.” Locus columnist Ian Mond cites our “excellent new anthology” as “evidence that long-form genre fiction is not just alive and well but thriving.”
Unseaming, my debut horror collection, was a Shirley Jackson Award finalist. I’ll let Nathan Ballingrud, author of Monsterland (now streaming on Hulu!), make my pitch for me: “Brutal, elegant, and shocking, the stories in Unseaming are snapshots of a beautiful Hell.”
Finally, the way to get yourself a fourth e-book free (your pick from the Mythic Delirium catalogue) is to e-mail me at mythicdelirium[at]gmail[dot]com and tell me you own all three horror books. I won’t even demand that you prove it.
My thanks to Black Gate for the chance to share this sale with you!
