This month’s book will be Swift to Chase by Laird Barron. Barron is a horror author responsible for the short story collections Occultation, The Imago Sequence, and The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All. I have not tried to hide the fact that I am an immense fan of Barron’s work, particularly The Beautiful Thing collection which includes some of the most frightening short stories I have ever read. This most recent collection has been receiving very high praise and I can’t wait to dig into it with you.
“This book will go down as one of the best horror story collections of the decade. This I promise you.” – Max Booth III, Litreactor.com
“Swift to Chase is the best collection of short fiction that Barron has put together so far, and likely to be among the top such books to be produced in our current decade.” Shane Douglas Keene, This Is Horror.
