Another Strangehouse Anthology By Women of Horror? Yes, Please.

Way back in the BEFORE TIMES, during the Fall of 2018, we announced NOT ALL MONSTERS: A Strangehouse Anthology By Women of Horror.

The book was released in 2020 and, in 2021, NOT ALL MONSTERS is officially a Bram Stoker Awards® nominee for “Superior Achievement in an Anthology” and you can check out all the nominees HERE. The anthology was edited by Stoker Award-winner, Sara Tantlinger, whose CRADLELAND OF PARASITES is also a Bram Stoker Awards® finalist in the “Superior Achievement in a Poetry Collection” category.

Well… consider this post a semi-official warning:

Rooster Republic Press and Sara Tantlinger are gearing up for Volume 2 of A STRANGEHOUSE ANTHOLOGY BY WOMEN OF HORROR. Expect a more in-depth article that details the new theme and submission information on Monday, May 3rd!

What a week and change! Great stuff happening in the indie horror community, these days, and no further proof needed than to see HOW MANY indie titles hit the Bram Stoker Award preliminary ballot. Holy smokes, folks! And congratulations to everybody, not just the writers, but the publishers and readers and the folks tirelessly pushing this stuff in their circles. We see you and appreciate you!

And what really blew us away was seeing ALL THREE of our 2020 Strangehouse titles on the ballot:

Update for 2021 Strangehouse and Rooster Titles. Also, Thank God 2020 is Over. What Even Was That Shit?!

Happiest New Year to you, dear reader. Glad to have you with us! Last year was a bit nuts, and though we are sure that 2021 will have its own nasty surprises, here’s hoping the year gives everyone a shot in the arm of positivity (and a real shot in the arm of vaccine). Regardless, we have no intention of slowing our particular roll, and that means stepping up our production-side of things. Namely, our special editions, which we formally introduced in 2020.

Our 2020 hardcovers were pretty popular, and we will continue offering hardcovers in 2021. However, we fielded some interesting requests, and after brainstorming a little bit, we’ve decided to offer “deluxe” editions of our hardcover releases. These will include, at a minimum, a numbered hardcover featuring foil designs, housed in a custom slipcase and/or box, with a small art print signed by author and artist(s). Additional swag will include a sticker and an exclusive die-cut bookmark. Now, there is a lot of R&D going on right now, but here’s a look at some test-run prototypes:

CRADLELAND OF PARASITES is now live on Amazon!

Cradleland media jacket

We promised a follow-up post as soon as CRADLELAND OF PARASITES went live, and here it is: you can now grab Bram Stoker Award-winner Sara Tantlinger’s excellent collection of plague-inspired poetry from Amazon.

CRADLELAND OF PARASITES is the latest from the author of THE DEVIL’S DREAMLAND and LOVE FOR SLAUGHTER and this new collection may just be her best work yet!

But don’t take our word for it, grab your copy and settle in for achingly beautiful horror unlike anything else you’re bound to read in 2020.

Thanks for reading! And we hope you enjoy the book.
