MARTYRS & MONSTERS

by Robert Dunbar

"The demented lovechild of Faulkner and King" ~ HellNotes

Robert Dunbar has been called one of the "saviors of contemporary dark fiction" and an "avatar of literary horror." Martyrs & Monsters runs the gamut of this extraordinary author's narrative range, embracing vampires and sea serpents, werewolves and swamp creatures . . . as well as a host of nightmares for which no names exist. Whether set on an orbiting space station or within a haunted tenement, these terrifying tales are steeped in a passionate intensity that renders them all but unique within the genre, and all boast a sophistication that qualifies them as that rarest of rare commodities: horror for intelligent adults.

"Gritty and savage . . . profound and quietly devastating . . . as much intellectual as visceral. Despite all the mayhem, a consistent humanity manifests itself, a glimmer of hope in all the madness. Quite simply, this collection represents dark fiction as it should be-chilling, entertaining, intelligent." ~ From the introduction by Greg F. Gifune
