Publisher/Full-Time Editor/Freelance Writer


Monstrous transplants. Appalling amputations. Bizarre implants. Nightmarish forms of body enhancements. Disturbing, perverse, often gut-wrenching stories--all between the covers of this book!

This is the first anthology published by Smart Rhino Publications, and still one of the favorites for readers. The horror stories are not for the squeamish! The antho contains 20 stories from some of today's best horror writers, including Graham Masterton, Lisa Mannetti, John Shirley, Scott Nicholson, L.L. Soares, and several other names you're sure to recognize.

And most of the reviewers seemed to like ZIPPERED FLESH as well!


"If director David Cronenberg edited an anthology, this would be that book." -- Brian Sammons, Horror World

"There are some real high points in this collection – ‘Hearing Mildred’, ‘Marvin’s Angry Angel’ and ‘Sawbones’ in particular – and the authors have all attempted to approach the subject matter from very different and interesting angles." -- JD Gillam, This is Horror

"This is an outstanding anthology, one I will read a few times to catch all the nuances and descriptors these clever writers put together." -- M.L. Roos

"Starting Zippered Flesh with a sinking feeling of sadness and fear and ending it with a smile is the best way to go. I LOVED this anthology. Reading through it was like riding a roller coaster in a haunted house, and anybody who knows me knows that I can’t get enough of wild roller coasters and haunted houses." -- Tiffany T. Cole, LitStack

"A DIFFERENT BOOK!! LOVE that it's like Twilight Zone and Tales From the Dark Side rolled into one. I didn't know what to expect as I began each new story. No way can you figure out what's gonna happen ... it keeps you thinking ... and disgustingly attentive to every word!" -- Phyllis A. Jeffers
