Silvia Moreno-Garcia has just revealed the creepy-cool cover art and table of contents for her upcoming collection This Strange Way of Dying. The artwork is by Sara K. Diesel.

Here’s the synopsis:

Creatures that shed their skin and roam the night. Vampires in Mexico City struggling with disenchantment. An apocalypse with giant penguins. Legends of magic scorpions and tales of a ceiba tree surrounded by human skulls. Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s short stories are infused with Mexican folklore, yet firmly rooted in reality; a reality that is transformed as the fantastic erodes the rational.

Spanning a variety of genres (fantasy, science fiction, horror) and time periods, This Strange Way of Dying is an exceptional debut collection that will not easily be forgotten.
