Authors announced for Demon Rum and Other Evil Spirits Anthology

I've been excited about the Demon Rum and Other Evil Spirits anthology ever since it's conception. My co-editor on this one brought the idea to me at the WHC in New Orleans last June. Coincidence, maybe. But who can think about a trip to New Orleans without a stop at Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop Bar or the Old Absinthe House? They even have a street named "Bourbon." So maybe it was the atmosphere or maybe Clint's just devilishly creative (I'm going to go with both), but add to that a bunch of horror writers and you've got yourself one hell of an addicting concept. (See what I did there?)

Apparently, we weren't the only ones who thought it was a fantastic idea, because the submissions rolled in as soon as we opened them. We had a tough time narrowing them down. We debated the merits of each story and if it fit the direction we wanted to take the book; we each had our favorites to argue for; and we both wanted exceptional writing. In the end, we still had too many good stories. And so we decided to do a smaller, six pack anthology, a preview of good things to come. We'll be releasing Shots of Terror, a taste test, if you will, of the larger anthology about a week before Demon Rum makes it's appearance. Bargain priced, you can pick it up to mollify those cravings until you can slake your thirst with the full cask.

So now, without further ado, our authors for each anthology:

Congratulations to all of our authors. Stay tuned for an upcoming look at the ToC. Save your pennies and mark your calendars, March is going to be a great month for reading!



  1. Congrats, everyone! Love the book covers. Very sharp. I may need to stock up on some Sailor Jerry for this one!

  2. I will make a sly remark and suggest another rum, my friend. When the book comes out, read my tale and you'll see why. Heh,heh.



We love to hear from you! Please leave us a comment!
