Well it’s been awhile, I’ve been busy painting mugs. Don’t ask. But, good news, I’m back! Okay, well good for me anyways.
So this week what’s on my mind is the power of the written word. How many anthologies have you read where there are 50 stories in the thing and yet only two of them really ‘sat’ with you? The rest were good, sure, but not impactful, they left no lasting impression.
Well this is exactly why I’m so excited to be involved in helping to create the Bleeding Ink Anthology.
I mean I don’t know about you, but I’ve read novels that left me with no impression, and yet on the other side I’ve read as few as three or six word sentences that still resonate with me today. It will be an honour to provide a showcase for powerfully dark works of all length and styles. I hope you submit your own work, I hope you spread the word, and I hope that together we can create something very special.
So, in line of my topic for today, which Anthologies have you read that were worth the money and why?
I’ll start things off with my latest and personal fav;
Why? Cause it’s very dark, like all true horror should be. The stories, created by 7 authors from around the globe, will give you all kinds of creepy chills in all the right places. Add to that, the artwork is simply AMAZING. (damn I want to own those prints!) The format is wonderfully unique as well, with all stories following the same overall theme, but yet so different too. It’s refreshing. If you like dark things like me.
