From the Author
This anthology was previously published in 2007 but had some trouble with a damned plagiarist named David "Iron Dave" Boyer which sent me a story called "Electrocuting The Clowns" along with a story called Blood Ties which I later found out this was stolen too. I went back and reworked both these anthologies -- the version you see here is the expanded Heaven In Black Edition. I call it that because of my favorite band being Black Sabbath and that is the closing track on TYR. This anthology is one of those that holds it's own with anthologies "The Years Best Horror" and even Tabloid Purposes IV
. This book spun off from Tabloid Purposes IV and became it's own series in the long run. The expanded version is 100 pages longer than the original.
