While there have been quite a few erotic horror anthologies over the years, from the groundbreaking Hot Blood of 1989 to recent efforts of this century, Comet Press is ready to ratchet up the eroticism and visceral intensity with hardcore stories that penetrate new depths of psychosexual horror.
The purpose of this campaign is to raise money to pay authors the professional rate of 6 cents a word. Jack Ketchum, Graham Masterton, Brian Hodge, and Barbie Wilde have already tentatively agreed to contribute original stories, and Comet Press will be adding other prestigious names to the roster.
In exchange for pledging, backers will have access to a fantastic array of rewards. All reward levels, $5 and up, will get a copy of the book, and other levels include the paperback, backer-only and signed limited editions, other Comet Press books in the anthology series including Necro Files: Two Decades of Extreme Horror, plus the upcoming Forbidden Gospels: The Devil’s Cut which contains the “lost” sections of the infamous Duet for the Devil by T. Winter-Damon & Randy Chandler.

Acclaim for Comet Press Books
“Edited by Cheryl Mullenax, Vile Things: Extreme Deviations of Horror is not for the light horror fan. The stories are not just extreme horror, but also extreme gore and sex…a triple threat of fun in my eyes.” – Fangoria
“With sharp writing and a crisp design to match, the anthology makes a strong case for 2009’s best. It’s only Comet Press’ third release, but already, the small-press label has distinguished itself as a reliable name brand. Pick it up, if you’ve got the balls.” – Bookgasm (for The Death Panel)
“Simply put, Vile Things is every deviant horror fan’s wet dream.”– Rue Morgue Magazine
“So if you’re looking for something a little different to read in your horror fiction, a book with stories that are edgy and cool as all hell, then pick up The Death Panel, and then be prepared to be blown away by some of the best genre short story fiction written in the last few years. Yes, this book is that good.” – Horror World
“…Necro Files is practically perfect. Every story is an absolute hit… and why not? We’re talking John Everson, Bentley Little, Edward Lee, Joe Lansdale and George R.R. Martin, to name a few. All of the stories are dark and disturbing in their own ways, and, well, extreme. This is one anthology that horror fans, not just of the extreme variety, should have in their collections. Highly recommended.” – Monster Librarian
