Six Guns Straight From Hell 3: Horror & Dark Fantasy From the Weird Weird West, 2020
Featuring “Death’s Horse” by KC Grifant 

From the editor: Saddle up for a wild ride through the weird, weird west. As you ride our trails you’ll want to keep one eye on the path ahead and one over your shoulder cause there’s a bushwhacking monster creeping up behind you. If your horse gets eaten by a monster, you might be able to get a ride on the midnight train, as long as you don’t mind sitting with ghosts. If you don’t catch the train, maybe the devil can give you a lift back to town. Just be careful which place you head for, because the folks in one town are about to die. Staying on ranches ain’t much safer, especially at one girl’s birthday party. Then again, even going to outhouses can be deadly. If you happen to visit the local brothel, be sure and treat the ladies right or you’ll pay dearly. And Tombstone is no place to get your picture taken if you want to keep your skin.

We Shall Be Monsters 
2018 by Renaissance Press
Featuring “Wanting” By KC Grifant

From the editor: Mary Shelley’s genre-changing book Frankenstein; or, the Modern Prometheus, helped to shape the genres of science fiction and horror, and helped to articulate new forms for women’s writing. It also helped us to think about the figure of the outsider, to question medical power, to question ideas of “normal,” and to think about what we mean by the word “monster.”  We Shall Be Monsters: Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein Two Centuries On features a broad range of fiction stories by authors from around the world, ranging from direct interactions with Shelley’s texts to explorations of the stitched, assembled body and narrative experiments in monstrous creations.

Beyond the Infinite: Tales from the Outer Reaches
2018, Things in the Well
Featuring “The Peerlings” by KC Grifant

From the editor: Within these pages are stories of terror; stories of hope; stories of aliens invading our space; and of us invading theirs. There are hightech tales and human interest stories, weird fiction and wild fantasies, and I hope they do the job we intended: to lift you out of your comfort zone; to teleport you where no one has gone before, to somewhere beyond the infinite and into the outer reaches of the imagination where there are endless stories to be told, limitless opportunities to learn, and an infinite number of reasons to hope… Enjoy!


Featured Anthology

FRIGHT MARE: Women Who Write Horror
DM Publishing
*Anthology nominated for a Bram Stoker Award*
Featuring “What Storms Bring” by KC Grifant

From the editor: Women 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. They are. Read here stories by Elizabeth Massie, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Lucy Taylor, and a plethora of other great writers as they work on your nerves, get inside your head, and bang out some of the scariest tales written today. I’m proud to present these women for your consideration, as Rod Serling might say, as I ask you to step into FRIGHT MARE. 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?
