OK, that headline might have been too clever by half, but Wicked Run Press’ new anthology is available now.  Garden of Fiends features eight stories of addiction horror, from heroin to alcohol and everything in between.  The line up is pretty cool, featuring stories by Kealan Patrick Burke, Jack Ketchum, Mark Matthews and…me!  My offering, “Last Call,” is a short one, but hopefully packs a punch.

 

Go get it here.

 

 

Here are what some are already saying about Garden of Fiends:

“There’s something here to scare anyone and everyone. Garden of Fiends pushes all the wrong buttons in all the right ways!”  -Jonathan Maberry, New York Times best-selling author of Dogs of War and Mars One

Garden of Fiends is scary in the realest of ways. What fertile ground for horror; stories that already, by nature, take place in the Twilight Zone; where lies and shady acts are the rule; where men and women step out of one world and into another; a place where addiction is king. John FD Taff’s ‘Last Call’ is worth the price of admission alone.”  -Josh Malerman, Bram Stoker nominated author of Bird Box

“A brilliant and original concept, Garden of Fiends captures the struggles of addiction and the horrors they inflict on those affected by it. Yes, it is dark and visceral, but with moments of hope throughout that make this a memorable collection of stories.”  -The Horror Bookshelf

Garden of Fiends brings us face-to-face with the demons driving us to dependence. Raw, brutal and insightful, Garden of Fiends is an important work.” -Lee Murray, author of Into the Mist

“An unflinching and intense look at addiction and its consequences, from some of the best horror writers in the business.” -Char’s Horror Corner

“An incredibly fascinating and at times grim read. These are dark tales set against a backdrop of fear, addiction and self-loathing where families are ripped apart and relationships are left in tatters. Some of these stories will infect your conscious, burying themselves deep inside of your mind, leaving you scarred and itching to read more.” -Adrian Shotbolt, The Grim Reader

“Every offering drips with truth, blending tales of horror and addiction into an emotionally draining, yet essential experience.” -Ben Walker, UK Horror Scene
