Fright Mare: Women Write Horror

FrightMareWomen write horror and have written it since before Mary Shelley wrote FRANKENSTEIN. This anthology is to highlight the fact women write great horror and to kill the fallacy that they aren’t in some way up to standard.

Edited by Billie Sue Mosiman, Fright Mare includes stories by Elizabeth Massie, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Kathy Ptacek, Lucy Taylor, and Loren Rhoads, as well as Rose Blackthorn,Tonia Brown, Mara Buck, Raven Dane, Sarah Doebereiner, K C Grifant, Morgan Griffith, Amy Grech, CW LaSart, Hillary Lyon, K L Nappier, Mary Ann Peden-Coviello, Marie Victoria Robertson,and Lorraine Versini.

Lock the door and windows, put on a light, and remember, it’s not real. It’s not real. Midnight awaits, monsters scheme to take you away, the strange and weird wait in the shadows, but it’s not real. Is it?

Now available for pre-order at Amazon in paperback or Kindle at a special price. The book comes out on February 5 to celebrate Women in Horror Month.


This book includes my latest Alondra story, “Sakura Time.”  Inspired by a trip I took to Japan that focused on meeting Japanese art doll makers, “Sakura Time” was my attempt to write a Japanese ghost story like The Ring or Dark Water.

The story contains characters I introduced in “The Fox and the Foreigner,” which was published in Not One of Us #38 in October 2007. That story was long-listed for the British Science Association Award in January 2008.
