Synopses & Reviews
This new collection ventures into the world of the sinister and the disturbing, with flashes of sheer horror. These 30 tales have been specially written by distinguished writers, including Francis King; anthology favorites like Lawrence Schimel; those with growing reputations, such as Simon Lovat; and rising young stars like Stuart Thorogood. Only one thing is guaranteed: something out of kilter, something dangerously askew.
Peter Burton's previous anthology, The Mammoth Book of Gay Short Stories, was nominated for a Lambda award. He is the commissioning editor of GMP and literary editor of Gay Times.
