I’ve had a stutter over the proposed title for the new collection. Initially it was to be called Penetralia, but then I thought Open Heart Surgery would be better. Now I’m thinking Born With Teeth might be a good fit… Please help…
Very excited to be a part of this new book, The Mammoth Book of Body Horror, to be released on March 1st, which is, according to the publishers:
a very special and unique anthology celebrating the sub-genre of ‘Body Horror’, tracing its origins right up to the most modern exponents of the form. Featuring a veritable ‘who’s who’ of horror literature, and including the stories those classic Body Horror movies – The Thing, The Fly and Re-Animator – were based on, this promises to be a groundbreaking and landmark release in the history of the genre.
