Deadly After Dark (#4)

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.


“Erotic or sexual, sexy or cautionary, here are 14 new stories which should arouse a variety of responses, ranging from 'Oooh, wow' to 'Yuck.' As with every preceeding volume of this series, there’s some extremely effective material. Every once in a while, the book cracks the surface of the fictive lava field open just enough so you can feel that super-heated steam building up…”


“Something for every taste. DEADLY AFTER DARK is a worthy continuation of a series that has yet to reach its climax.”


“It’s good to see the Hot Blood series continuing. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series. Recommended.”
