For all you horror fans, two new anthologies have hit the streets, both of them available from Amazon. Now that everyone's got a little extra holiday money and all those gift cards, it's a perfect time to check one or both of them out.
Midnight Lullabies is The Harrow's latest project -- a collection of creepy tales and poems featuring such familiar names as Lee Clark Zumpe, Alexis Child, Kurt Newton, and Alison J. Littlewood. Be sure to read Sarah E. Wagner's spine-chilling poem, "Mirrors in Motion." All proceeds from the anthology are being donated to Doctors Without Borders.
The second new collection is Forbidden Speculation, a book of 17 stories about -- you guessed it -- forbidden speculation. The stories were gathered by Seth Crossman, esteemed editor of OG's Speculative Fiction. The cover art looks like it was ripped off an Isaac Asimov book.
Both books should provide some good after-holiday reading. If you buy one you're supporting international medical care, and if you buy the other, you're helping to support the small press. Decisions, decisions.... Why not just buy them both?
