What is it? The first publication from Plutonian Press! Released August 1st. The title? Phantasm/Chimera. It is an anthology featuring some of, what I feel to be, best writers of the weird and fantastic working today. Phantasm/Chimera is a collection of all horror, some weird, some creepy, some erotic, some surreal. It has been a lifelong dream of mine to publish a horror anthology. I had a lot of fun creating this, and I hope all The Plutonian readers enjoy this book! Here is the table of contents:
Lost in Strange Shadow: An Appreciation of Nightmare Horror - Scott Dwyer
The Wind, The Dust - Adam Golaski
Provisions for a Journey - Matthew M. Bartlett
The Bruised Veil - Christopher Slatsky
The Last of Liquid Sleep - Thana Niveau
The Hole - Brian Evenson
The Hotel Pelagornis, 1899 - Livia Llewellyn
Binding - Mike Allen
The Great, Grey Bulk - Jon Padgett
Chrysalis - John Claude Smith
Fiending Apophenia - Clint Smith
The Last American Lion Pelt - Jason A. Wyckoff
All of the authors contributed amazing stories, from strange alien imposters to ghostly invasions, from demonic perversions to drug fueled hallucinations. I want to extend a huge thank you to everyone who submitted a story, thank you so much for giving a first-time publisher a chance. I want to give a special thanks to two people who really jumped in and gave me incredible help and advice. Amanda Rejman for all her support. And Adam Golaski for going above and beyond in making sure the end product was something special.
Anyway, again I hope everyone digs the book. If you feel like it, reviews on Goodreads and Amazon is always a good thing. Please let me know what you think! If people like Phantasm/Chimera… there may be a vol 2…..
