Terror Tuesday: ALTERNATIVE HOLIDAYS edited by Alicia Hilton

ALTERNATIVE HOLIDAYS (edited by Alicia Hilton and Bob Brown) is an anthology that takes a dark—and sometimes humorous—look at many of our favorite holidays.

You will be transported from the bottom of the sea to Mount Olympus, from shopping malls in hell to a bathtub in a cheap motel. Cthulhu awakens. Cupid becomes a vigilante. Santa grants deadly wishes. And that is just the beginning of your journey into alternative visions of the holidays we know, love, and sometimes fear.

Be prepared to be shocked, titillated, and petrified. Alternative Holidays presents 43 works by award-winning and critically acclaimed authors of horror, science fiction, fantasy, and mystery.

TERROR TUESDAY: Rebecca Rowland

New England dark fiction author Rebecca Rowland’s new “weird horror” novella, SHAGGING THE BOSS, is available now from publisher Filthy Loot.

After a fortuitous encounter at a local book convention, a liberal arts graduate accepts a position at a flashy publishing company under the tutelage of its charismatic owner only to learn that the press is led, and fed, by a literal boogeyman.

TERROR TUESDAY: Elana Gomel

DHC member Elana Gomel is the author of more than one hundred short stories, several novellas, and four novels. Her story, “Where the Streets Have No Name,” was the winner of the 2020 Gravity Award, “Mine Seven” is included in THE BEST HORROR OF THE YEAR 13 edited by Ellen Datlow, and “Bread and Salt” appears in THE JEWISH BOOK OF HORROR.

Gomel’s new dark fantasy novel, BLACK HOUSE, “combines the terror of HOUSE OF LEAVES with the adventures of Narnia.”
