To Wallow in Ash & Other Sorrows by Sam Richard
Winner of the 2019 Wonderland Award for Best Collection, To Wallow in Ash & Other Sorrows is a bleak and unflinching look at widowhood through the lens of horror fiction. Written in the early days of widowhood and in the spirit of J.G. Ballard, Kathe Koja, and Georges Bataille, these stories are a cross-section of literary splatterpunk, transgressive fiction, and weird horror, which explore loss, grief, and the alluring comforts found within the heart of oblivion.
This Revised & Expanded version includes the never-before-seen novelette There is Power in the Blood.
"With To Wallow in Ash & Other Sorrows, Sam Richard has crafted a book of stories that will rip your heart right out of your chest... and it's absolutely worth every moment. At turns brutally raw, incredibly beautiful, and always unexpected, this is an unforgettable ode to a love lost far too soon, and a collection that is absolutely worth seeking out." - Gwendolyn Kiste, author of The Rust Maidens and The Invention of Ghosts
