Zippered Flesh 3: Body Enhancements Gone Bad!

Calling all horror and speculative fiction readers. Boosting the signal for a new Indiegogo campaign from Smart Rhino Publications.
 
Smart Rhino Publications began in 2012 with the horror anthology ZIPPERED FLESH: Tales of Body Enhancements Gone Bad! The book included stories by Graham Masterton, John Shirley, Lisa Mannetti, L.L. Soares, Scott Nicholson, and 15 other notable authors. The book was so well-received, we decided to do a second anthology with the same theme.
 
In 2013, Smart Rhino published ZIPPERED FLESH 2: More Tales of Body Enhancements Gone Bad! This anthology included two Bram Stoker Award nominees—”Primal Tongue” by Michael Bailey and “The Hunger Artist” by Lisa Mannetti—as well as 20 other stories. We’re incredibly proud of this anthology.
 
And now we are pulling together the third in the ZIPPERED FLESH series … and this time you can help with the project! Our main goal for this Kickstarter campaign is to increase our payments to our authors, aiming for professional rates. Our superb writers deserve it! As a small independent publisher, Smart Rhino Publications strives to publish quality books and provide venues for talented writers. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated … and rewarded!
 
Check out the many great rewards we’re offering for your support! We’re sure you’ll find something of interest, especially if you love horror and suspense fiction.

Beach Nights is Now Live!

I’m ecstatic to announce that Beach Nights is now available for purchase!  We will be launching the book at Browseabout Books in Rehoboth Beach, DE on Sunday, November 13 from 2-4PM. You can purchase the book now via the links below.

In Beach Nights, readers will encounter a ghostly WWII tower (Phil says: hey, that’s my story!)  and a couple with an unusual annual tradition; a girl who finds her voice at a jazz club and a boy who learns the snow cone king has a secret; an old lady who is inspired to get a tattoo, and a despondent man who is resurrected through the tango.

Beach Nights opens with a funny and romantic story involving a high school prom, and continues through tales that involve a mermaid’s moon, a “Vampire Surf Club,” senior disco queens, a seemingly haunted Funland ride, a murder at a Rehoboth hotel, a moonlit sea turtle rescue, and a kid who sneaks into a James Brown concert and meets the man himself.

Purchase from Cat & Mouse Press!
