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

Praise for Robert Dunbar's MARTYRS & MONSTERS "Robert Dunbar has the unique personal vision, command of language, and atmospheric style to enrapture you in the wildest, deepest nightmare." ~ Tom Piccirilli, author of THE COLD SPOT "Dunbar is a masterful writer: intelligent, controlled, stylish, and honest." ~ Tim Lebbon, author of FALLEN "One of my favorite storytellers, Robert Dunbar is a true craftsman - a master of the genre. His writing is rich with style and substance." ~ Brian Keene, author of GHOST WALK "Intimate and terrifying, Dunbar's short fiction confidently and skillfully draws the reader in . closer . closer ..." ~ Elizabeth Massie, author of HOMEPLACE "A must read for any serious connoisseur - Robert Dunbar has become a contemporary avatar of literary horror." ~ P. D. Cacek, author of NIGHT PRAYERS "Robert Dunbar is among the saviors of contemporary dark fiction. His work grabs you from the start and resonates long after you're finished. Literary and deliciously fierce - each story possesses its own unique flavor of decadence, color and depth . a feast for those who crave horror at its finest." ~ Sandy DeLuca, author of MANHATTAN GRIMOIRE
