About this title

Synopsis:

Love can lift you to the heights of passion or lead you to the depths of hell. Bram Stoker award winner John Everson's second fiction collection offers 15 dark fantasy and horror tales of dark desire:

CALLING OF THE MOON - She answered the calling of the moon. But not before he felt its touch.

LOVESONG - She lured him into the arms of alternative music. He lured her to face the room at the top of the stairs.

A TIME FOR MUSIC - A fairy flute can make dangerous music.

TRICK AND TREAT - All he wanted was a little company for the holiday.

AFTER THE FIFTH STEP - Sometimes, walking the tightrope isn't just a balancing act.

SEVEN DEADLY SEEDS - Bellinda liked to plant things. And Penelope was happy to give her the seeds.

PRESERVE - I don't kill, I preserve, the taxidermist said. But Richard wanted to die.

HARD HEART - Sometimes, wearing a heart on your sleeve can be tough. But giving it away can be even worse.

FROST - When David left the plane to live with the frost sprite, he thought his problems were over.

ANNE'S PERFECT SMILE - She'd disappeared without a trace. And then he found the post-it note.

A LACK OF SIGNS - If you really know what you want, sometimes, you can find it.

CHRISTMAS, THE HARD WAY - There's a reason for every tradition, even if you have magic.

THE HUMANE WAY - Christmas dinner can lead to unsavory philosophical debates.

THE RIGHT INSTRUMENT - Jack's career as a jingle writer was on the deep skids after his breakup. But Eddie knew, all he needed was the right instrument.

VIGILANTES OF LOVE - They came in silence from the swamps by the light of the full moon. They left only bloodstains on the sheets. Ribaud knew that it would take a voodoo queen to reverse the curse.

From the Back Cover:

Critical Acclaim for John Everson:

"John Everson has to be congratulated for having the courage of his nightmares. Not every writer would be able to convert his most freakish and kinkiest imaginings into neatly plotted narratives..." ~Paul DiFilippo, Asimov’s Science Fiction

"John Everson is a renaissance man, talented in so many fields including the composing of horror. I say composing, as he creates it much as he does his music, with attention to perfect details that resonate through all the senses. He is going to be even more amazing than he already is." ~Charlee Jacob, author of Haunter

"His stories are an exhilarating mix of brains and horrific brawn—scary controversial, and unforgettable." ~Edward Lee, author of Incubi

"Everson drops us into a dark and claustrophobic world of obsession and dementia. We can only hope that the horror will hide itself again—and unfortunately it does...inside of us." ~David Barnet, Necro Publications

"Everson creates great characters, puts them in strange but seemingly real-feeling situations and then lets us watch them go at it. This is storytelling at its best, where we feel almost voyeuristic as we follow the action. Writing this quality is a pretty rare thing and to find true horror in modern settings is even rarer." ~Steven Sawicki, Scavenger's Newsletter
