"Once upon a hollowed out moon, my liver withers ..."

The Bloodless girl is haunted by confusing memories of her cannibalistic worm mother. Did the Bloodless girl bury her worm mother in salt? Where have all the worm siblings gone? And how did the Bloodless girl end up on a curving rural road that leads to nowhere and everywhere? The Bloodless girl can't remember. All she knows is that dust fills her arteries and the worm mother is gone. Accompanied by a skeletal pumpkin and devil tree, the Bloodless girl journeys through the New Jersey backwoods in search of a hilltop slaughterhouse that is the key to regaining her blood and learning the truth about the worm mother's disappearance.


'Hooks and Slaughterhouse: a novel' by Alana I. Capria ('Organ Meat, Killing Me' and '3 Pieces from The Bovine Uterus') is a groundbreaking work of experimental horror based on New Jersey's urban legends.

Illustrations by Rita Okusako.
