IN SOMNIO: A Collection of Modern Gothic Horror
THERE BUT FOR THE GRACE OF GOTH
Twenty-five women and non-binary writers from the worlds of Horror Fiction & Illustration drag the blackened heart of Classic Gothic Horror out into the open, sculpting a sleeker, fiercer beast and recasting the legacy of our original Gothmothers in a chilling contemporary light.
Within the walls of an arcane modern art gallery...into the blackest burrows of the animal kingdom...tableside at the world’s last restaurant on the eve of the apocalypse...from the deep American South to the depths of a hostile sea, a cornucopia of nightmares awaits.
In Somnio features eighteen vibrant, unique stories; each brings a new perspective to our inherent love of Gothic Horror and what those vital elements of terror still have to tell us today.
