Table of Contents: GUTTED: BEAUTIFUL HORROR STORIES Edited by Doug Murano & D. Alexander Ward

Check out the impressive the table of contents for the upcoming Crystal Lake anthology Gutted: Beautiful Horror Stories edited by Doug Murano & D. Alexander Ward and featuring original artwork by Luke Spooner.

Here’s the book description:

Awe and ache. Terror and transcendence. Regret and rebirth. Gutted: Beautiful Horror Stories is coming this June! Imagine a series of stories that explores the tension between beauty and horror, wonder and terror, sorrow and transcendence. A book where the only choices are “bad” and “worse.” It’s a book of scars, regret and loneliness. But through it all, it’s a book where hope can still exist and beauty can still thrive. Where goodness, if not rewarded, is at least acknowledged. A flower in the barrel of a rifle. A rose rising defiantly through a crack in the concrete. This is GUTTED: An anthology of terrible wonder and darkness. With a foreword by Cemetery Dance magazine founder Richard Chizmar
