Eros and Thanatos, sex and death, those tricksy bastards, are constantly fornicating in the dark shadows of the psyche. It can be difficult to write about this pairing, but in the end, it’s also really the only thing we want to write about. Sex wouldn’t mean as much if we weren’t certain,
somewhere in a dark corner of our minds, that yes, we will die. So now, in this moment, we will touch, we will feel, we will scream, we will laugh, because tomorrow we simply will not be. Sex is how life is created and affirmed. Death reminds us how very, very good that is.
It’s about time that we dealt with fear and death in their relation to sex, and in What Lies Beneath some of Circlet’s finest and most twisted writers have contributed their visions of that that means. Every story in this collection has its darkness, its discomfort, its terror, but there is also rapture, and need, and triumph. If you dare to read what these authors have to say, you’ll be forever changed, and will carry them with you long after you close the book.
This is Circlet Press’s first horror anthology, and within you will encounter love-starved demons, old Russian ghost stories, terrifying possessions, wicked-sexy faeries, promiscuous ghosts, and lovers that just refuse to die. Being frightened has never been so… arousing.
