Zippered Flesh 3: Yet More Tales of Body Enhancements Gone Bad!
What horror anthology on body enhancements wouldn’t include gross-out fiction? This book has it in spades. But, this collection of stories goes far beyond that. Here you will also find science fiction, surreal fiction, fantasy, and even a full serving of dark humor. Disturbing, perverse, often gut-wrenching (pun intended) stories—a must for your horror library.
This is the third anthology in the “Zippered Flesh” series. The previous two volumes were well-reviewed, and Zippered Flesh 2 included two stories that received Bram Stoker Award nominations. This book continues that same quality of horror fiction. The anthology contains nineteen chilling tales by some of the best horror and suspense writers today. Definitely not for the squeamish!
"Hardcore horror that ranges from the socially relevant to the scatologically repulsive—the shock here is like 'The Scream' made flesh." — Mort Castle, editor of On Writing Horror: A Handbook by the Horror Writers Association
"In Zippered Flesh 3, Editor Weldon Burge has done a masterful job of combining work from well-known masters like Jack Ketchum and Graham Masterton with newer writers. But it is the original work by newcomers like L.L. Soares and Meghan Acuri that stands out for me. ... Highly recommended." — Gene O'Neill, author of The Hitchhiking Effect: A Retrospective Collection
"'Closer by Charles Colyott is a wonderfully poignant and romantic story. ... 'Going Green' by Christine Morgan is so original, timely, and well-written it deserves special mention. ... Kudos to Burge for putting together another fine anthology of cutting-edge fiction." — Paul Dale Anderson, author of The Instruments of Death series
