The publishing world has just received its bill of health, and the prognosis isn't pretty. Literary marauders are rising up from the hazardous material bins labeled Horror, Surrealism, and Science Fiction. Here the pen is not merely mightier than the sword; it is a plague heralding the apocalypse for convention, writing a dirge for complacency. The stories herein explore illness in all its forms: physical, mental, and societal. These sick stories are horrendous, hilarious, and stupefying dissections of creative minds on the scalpel's edge.

Sick: An Anthology of Illness based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This may be the most grounbreaking collection of horror fiction published in recent times. The stories here represent the terrifying, thoughtful, illness-inducing (in a good way!), and sometimes comical literary explorations of some of the best and bravest authors writing horror fiction today. A must for fans of horror and dark fiction.
From editor/author John Edward Lawson comes one of the most anticipated underground books to ever infect bookstores. SICK was a tremendous exercise in the unusual, off-beat and bizarre. The stories (and there are a lot of them) ranged from mesmerizing to completely horrific. I swear I had trouble putting this damn book down. With cutting edge authors like Michael A Arzen, Tim Curran, Hertzan Chimera, J. M. Heluk, Harold Jaffe and Greg Beatty, you just can't go wrong with a book like this. It is truly a work of the darkest kind of art, and I can't wait to share it with my friends!
