A World of Horror

Availability: Ready to download

Every nation of the globe has unique tales to tell, whispers that settle in through the land, creatures or superstitions that enliven the night, but rarely do readers get to experience such a diversity of these voices in one place as in A World of Horror, the latest anthology book created by award-winning editor Eric J. Guignard, and beautifully illustrated by artist Steve Every nation of the globe has unique tales to tell, whispers that settle in through the land, creatures or superstitions that enliven the night, but rarely do readers get to experience such a diversity of these voices in one place as in A World of Horror, the latest anthology book created by award-winning editor Eric J. Guignard, and beautifully illustrated by artist Steve Lines. Enclosed within these pages are twenty-two all-new dark and speculative fiction stories written by authors from around the world that explore the myths and monsters, fables and fears of their homelands. • In “The Wife Who Didn’t Eat,” a modest Japanese farmer’s prayer to the gods comes true . . . much to his dismay. • In “Things I Do For Love,” the intertwined lives in an Indonesian village are upended by as diabolical and otherworldly a device as a simple whisper. • In “Mutshidzi,” an African teen must raise her brother and run the household after their mother dies. But there is so much to do . . . • In “Sick Cats in Small Spaces,” a vacationing Australian family come upon a ghost town where the actual ghosts are bottled and kept. Also encounter the haunting things that stalk those radioactive forests outside Chernobyl in Ukraine; sample the curious dishes one may eat in Canada; beware the veldt monster that mirrors yourself in Uganda; or simply battle mountain trolls alongside Alfred Nobel in Sweden. These stories and more are found within A World of Horror. Enter and discover, truly, there's no place on the planet devoid of frights, thrills, and wondrous imagination! Table of Contents includes: “Introduction: Diversity in Fiction” by Eric J. Guignard “Mutshidzi” by Mohale Mashigo (South Africa) “One Last Wayang” by L Chan (Singapore) “Things I Do For Love” by Nadia Bulkin (Indonesia) “On a Wooden Plate, On a Winter’s Night” by David Nickle (Canada) “Country Boy” by Billie Sue Mosiman (United States of America) “The Wife Who Didn't Eat” by Thersa Matsuura (Japan) “The Disappeared” by Kristine Ong Muslim (Philippines) “The Secret Life of the Unclaimed” by Suyi Davies Okungbowa (Nigeria) “How Alfred Nobel Got His Mojo” by Johannes Pinter (Sweden) “Sick Cats in Small Spaces” by Kaaron Warren (Australia) “Obibi” by Dilman Dila (Uganda) “The Nightmare” by Rhea Daniel (India) “Chemirocha” by Charlie Human (South Africa) “Honey” by Valya Dudycz Lupescu (Ukraine) “Warning: Flammable, See Back Label” by Marcia Douglas (Jamaica) “Arlecchino” by Carla Negrini (Italy) “The Man at Table Nine” by Ray Cluley (England) “The Mantle of Flesh” by Ashlee Scheuerman (Australia) “The Shadows of Saint Urban” by Claudio Foti (Italy) “Warashi’s Grip” by Yukimi Ogawa (Japan) “The White Monkey” by Carlos Orsi (Brazil) “The West Wind” by David McGroarty (Scotland) ### PRAISE: “Guignard’s editorial prowess is evident throughout; he has selected works that are as shocking as they are thought-provoking. This breath of fresh air for horror readers shows the limitless possibilities of the genre.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) “This is the book we need right now! Fresh voices from all over the world, bringing American audiences new ways to feel the fear. Horror is a universal genre and for too long we have only experienced one western version of it. No more. Get ready to experience a whole new world of terror.” —Becky Spratford; librarian, reviewer, RA for All: Horror “A cultural tour in the sacred art of horror—definitive proof that ghosts, ghouls, goblins, and more are equally terrifying in every corner of the world.” —Fanbase Press “A fresh collection of horror authors exploring monsters and myths from their homelands.” —Library Journal

    This anthology, A WORLD OF HORROR, is simply superb. Well planned, well implemented, gorgeously designed, and fantastic stories. Almost every contribution in this book is worth the ticket of admission. I really appreciated the chance to read dark-natured fictions stories from all over the world in just one place. Surprisingly, it’s hard to find good horror stories from a diverse group of authors all brought together in one book, but the editor Eric J. Guignard succeeded in this admirably.

Almost every contribution in this book is worth the ticket of admission. I really appreciated the chance to read dark-natured fictions stories from all over the world in just one place. Surprisingly, it’s hard to find good horror stories from a diverse group of authors all brought together in one book, but the editor Eric J. Guignard succeeded in this admirably. Some of my favorites were “Sick Cats in Small Spaces” by Kaaron Warren, where a family tests its bonds while bottling ghosts in an outback town. And “The Nightmare” by Rhea Daniel was very sensible and this slow-burn that took a surprising and multiply-shocking set of twists. “The West Wind” by David McGroarty was another slow burn that was just as thoughtful and psychological as any gothic tale of the ancient literaries. “The Secret Life of the Unclaimed” by Suyi Davies Okungbowa was terribly saddening, but a very realistic view of a “monster” in adolescence. And so many others. Again, just an excellent and fulfilling collection of well-written stories! (disclaimer: this book was provided in exchange for an honest review)

    I absolutely loved this anthology of horror stories from around the world, and I hope it's a herald of things to come as speculative fiction publishing continues to shift toward embracing diverse voices. The great thing about this book is that it offers a broad range of stories from various countries, like South Africa, Japan, Nigeria, Brazil, Italy, and more. With that incredible range, you feel like you really are getting to see different perspectives of horror from around the world that we wo I absolutely loved this anthology of horror stories from around the world, and I hope it's a herald of things to come as speculative fiction publishing continues to shift toward embracing diverse voices. The great thing about this book is that it offers a broad range of stories from various countries, like South Africa, Japan, Nigeria, Brazil, Italy, and more. With that incredible range, you feel like you really are getting to see different perspectives of horror from around the world that we wouldn't ordinarily get to experience, as readers, compiled all in one place. I especially liked that each story captured some element of the country it was from, either some particular voice, flavor, cultural experience, or mythology. That made it especially engaging and brought to life the purpose of the anthology. This entire enterprise feels like an untapped goldmine--I'd love to see a sequel to this with more stories from around the globe! Eric Guignard has done a great job compiling a diverse catalogue of compelling fiction here. I have a feeling this one is going to become an important part of every horror fan's bookshelf.

    This anthology is wonderfully dangerous. In addition to a story from one of my favorite short story writers, Nadia Bulkin, this anthology has generated a giant list of writers I need to search for more material from. The stories in here are diverse not just in the author origins and tone, but they also vary in makeup so much that it felt like a course in world literature in one volume. A day after reading the final story and I’m still thinking not just about individual stories, but how mind expa This anthology is wonderfully dangerous.

    This whole book of bringing together authors from around the world was an exceptional idea, and beautifully executed both in terms of story content and in visual appeal (nod to artist Steve Lines!). There’s a great variety of stories and tones, exploring myths and fears and tastes from 22 authors (in 18 countries, with a few countries represented twice). I loved Rhea Daniel in India, and Kaaron Warren in Australia, and David McGroarty in Scotland, and Suyi Davies Okungbowa in Nigeria, and so man This whole book of bringing together authors from around the world was an exceptional idea, and beautifully executed both in terms of story content and in visual appeal (nod to artist Steve Lines!).
