We are fortunate enough to be witnessing a lush flowering of horror. From New Weird to throwback splatterpunk, the modes and expressions of the genre these days are as diverse as its writers. Whether you're intimately familiar with the contemporary horror field, or just looking to dip your toe in a very deep—and monster-infested—pond, this bundle of horror novels and collections from sensational independent publisher Word Horde is not to be missed. You're sure to find something strange, something scary, something transgressive, something that jumps out at you and demands to be reckoned with.
Word Horde's list is eclectic, in the best way. Readers will find plenty of cosmic horror here, such as Brian Hauser's Memento Mori, nestled alongside literary works such as John Langan's The Fisherman, and lighter fare such as my own weird western Vermilion. You'll also find a lot of music-inspired horror such as David Peak's Corpsepaint, Tony McMillen's An Augmented Fourth, and Carrie Laben's A Hawk in the Woods. If you like your horror shorter, if not necessarily sweeter, we have a few stand-out collections, too. Orrin Grey's Guignol & Other Sardonic Tales will dazzle you, Nadia Bulkin's She Said Destroy will rebuke you, and Livia Llewellyn's Furnace will incinerate you from within. As you can see, every book in this bundle has been selected because it's essential reading for the up-to-date reader of modern horror fiction.
Like all speculative fiction, horror serves as a lens; as a mirror, really. When we read horror, we read about ourselves. That's why it makes us shiver and squirm. So, enjoy seeing yourself reflected throughout the Horror Bundle from Word Horde. Only you'll know if you're seeing yourself in the heroes—or the monsters.
