My short story “Enclosures” will be included in the new Tales from the Lake, Volume 3. Please check it out. It doesn’t come out til August 26 but you can preorder it here.

Tales from the Lake 3Dive into the deep end of the lake with 19 tales of terror, selected by Monique Snyman.

Tales from the Lake Vol. 3 features ghosts, monsters, assassins, alternate dimensions, creatures from the deepest depths and the darkest parts of the universe.

Join “Maybelle” by Mere Joyce in a world where books become real enough to cause both pleasure and pain. Avoid the sounds of “The Cruel” by Harper Hull, lest you want to come to a terrifying end. Travel across the world to see what terrors lurk in an abandoned hospital with “Hush” by Sergio Pereira.

This non-themed horror anthology is filled with suspenseful stories, terrifying thrillers, tragic tales, mystifying mysteries, and memorable adventures that will leave you wanting more. Let these modern urban legends prickle your imagination, share it around a campfire, and revel in the magic of Crystal Lake’s exceptional authors.

Linda AddisonHow to Recognize a Demon Has Become Your Friend by Linda D. Addison

Review by Bryan Cebulski (@BryanOnion)

Linda D. Addison is the most joyous, playful writer I’ve yet encountered on this list. Her works are funny, horrific, grotesque and farcical in both content and structure. This particular collection, How to Recognize a Demon has Become Your Friend, flipflops between short stories and poems. Her short fictions range from the amusing (ie “Excerpts from the Unabridged Traveler’s Guide as UFOs in Galaxy A.G.2”, a piece about the ethics of aliens traveling to Earth which plays on a lot of X-Files-esque alien tropes) to the tragic (ie “The Power”, about girls learning how to use witchcraft), and often incorporate elements of both (ie“Artificial Unintelligence”, wherein a typo causes an AI “human” resources department to attempt to arrest an unsuspecting woman just trying to settling her retirement plan).

Review by Bryan Cebulski (@BryanOnion)

I have no particular interest in vampires. In fact I would go so far as to say I find very little genuinely interesting about them. Yet I keep coming back to vampire stories. I’ve watched the entirety of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, but this is due to my fascination with the characters more than the monsters. Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines is one of my favorite videogames, but this is more out of respect for its gameplay and storyline. Nosferatu is one of my favorite movies, but that’s due to my admiration for the eerie aesthetic of German expressionism. I really want to read Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire and Tananarive Due’s African Immortals series, but that’s due to my ambition to be familiar with all horror genre touchstones and my appreciation for Tananarive Due as…
