"She was clearly dead. In the few seconds that I looked at the body, I could tell that her death had something to do with the knife sticking out of her throat."

A trophy wife tired of her husband's fetish. A pair of rednecks plotting to rob a gated community. A black metal musician who recorded himself murdering his girlfriend before committing suicide.

Sick Inside the Citadel is a collection of over a dozen of Benjamin Welton's best short stories and poems. Drawing on the rich American Gothic tradition pioneered by writers such as Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, and Flannery O'Connor, Sick Inside the Citadel examines perversity, insanity, and the dark underbelly of modern society.

Originally self-published by Welton in 2019, Terror House Press is proud to bring Sick Inside the Citadel back into print. This collection includes several stories and poems published by Terror House Magazine in 2018.
