Deadly After Dark

Deadly After Dark, fourth in the genre-defining Hot Blood erotic horror anthology series, pushes the envelope the furthest yet. Two Bram Stoker nominated stories, Lucy Taylor’s searing “Thing of Which We Do Not Speak” and Edward Lee’s brilliantly grisly “Mr. Torso,” demonstrate the depth and range of the best erotic horror, and highlight a 14 story collection that will both arouse your senses and make your blood run cold. Other contributors include award-winning and bestselling mystery author Max Allan Collins, making an all too rare foray into the dark side of suspense, as well as pioneering work from contemporary horror master Jack Ketchum, and new fiction by both Graham Watkins and Graham Masterton. It’s no surprise Fangoria said “Deadly After Dark is a worthy continuation of a series that has yet to reach its climax.”

Stranger by Night

Sex and horror, intertwined since the beginning of the human race, take on all new twists and turns (and contortions) in Stranger By Night, sixth in the Hot Blood erotic horror anthology series — with one of its most illustrious lists of contributors. Two of the greatest UK horror writers, Ramsey Campbell and Brian Lumley, each contribute. Actress/scream queen Brinke Stevens contributes original fiction. Comics illustrator and TV writer Bruce Jones contributes to the Hot Blood series for the first time, while Graham Masterton returns with another classic. Lucy Taylor and Brian Hodge are among the other brilliant horror writers, 18 stories in all, that probe every dark desire. Heliocentric Net said “whatever your tastes, be prepared to be titillated and terrorized,” and according to Deathrealm, “Stranger by Night demonstrates that the Hot Blood books haven’t lost their steam in any sense of the phrase.”
