Shock Totem 8: Curious Tales Of The Macabre And Twisted
Shock Totem 8: Curious Tales of the Macabre and Twisted
Shock Totem returns with its eighth issue, featuring classic tales of hauntings, monsters, and clowns!
Cody Goodfellow and John Skipp, who as collaborators have penned numerous short stories as well as the modern-horror classics Jake's Wake and Spore, provide "The Barham Offramp Playhouse" and "Depresso the Clown," respectively. Carlie St. George's "We Share the Dark" follows a woman struggling to leave her ghosts behind. "Death and the Maiden," by David Barber, revisits a classic time and a classic character in horror fiction. D.A. D'Amico's "Watchtower" and John C. Foster's "Highballing Through Gehenna" both traverse surreal landscapes full of monsters and madness.
WC Roberts, last seen in our third issue, returns with another mindbending slice of poetry, while newcomer Harry Baker's "Fat Betty" is a stark reminder that sometimes it's better to give than to take. "Stabat Mater," by Michael Wehunt, our flash fiction contest winner for 2013, takes parental sacrifice to a whole new level.
You will also find conversations with Cody Goodfellow and rising star Adam Cesare, narrative nonfiction by Catherine Grant, an article by Joe Modzelewski, reviews, and more...
