Editorial Reviews

Review

Loren Rhoads has a taste for the most breathtaking insights to be found in macabre topics...Her work is at once arresting, haunting, unsettling and gorgeous.
-Thomas Roche,
editor of the Noirotica series

Maria Alexander's stories are darkly funny and deliciously addictive.
- Jon Evans,
Arthur Ellis Award-winning author of Dark Places

Mehitobel Wilson is, in fact, the Real Deal, and reading her prose is like getting a red hot wire raked across your tenderest flesh.
- Fangoria Magazine

Christa Faust's voice will haul you outside and kick your ass. And you'll love every minute.
- Michael Marshall,
author of The Intruders

--Blurbs

If you've ever been told that dames are into the hearts-and-flowers, caress-my-inner-Goddess brand of eroticism, crack a copy of Sins of the Sirens and take a taste of .44-caliber love and stiletto desire. --ErosZine.com

My first thought in reviewing this book is that there is a level of deeply honest eroticism and fantasy to these stories that you seldom see in fiction. These aren't stories for the faint of heart. They are also not stories men should read if they have to stand up in public. They ARE stories that will stick with you.... this is a very strong, very intense and emotionally charged collection from some of the most talented ladies of darkness working in the horror and speculative fiction fields today. --MacabreInk.com

About the Author

A former fundamentalist turned simple fatalist, since 2000 Maria Alexander currently has had a number of her dark fiction tales have been published to some acclaim, as well as a collection of horror poetry. Her credits include stories in Gothic.net, Chiaroscuro Magazine and Paradox Magazine, as well as a number of anthologies. Almost all of her works have garnered either Honorable Mentions in the Year's Best Fantasy and Horror anthologies. The BBC radio occasionally invites her to talk about blasphemy, her favorite subject. She lives in Los Angeles with a French boyfriend, a pervasive sense of doom and a purse called Trog.

Christa Faust is the author of nine novels, including Control Freak, Triads (with Poppy Z. Brite), Hoodtown and her latest, Money Shot forthcoming from Hard Case Crime.

For ten years, Loren Rhoads was the editor of the cult nonfiction magazine Morbid Curiosity. Before that, she wrote about cemeteries for Gothic.Net. Her fiction has appeared in Cemetery Dance, City Slab, Not One of Us, etc., and in the chapbook Ashes & Rust. She's written erotica for Unzipped, Sex ToyTales,and Noirotica 4, with varying degrees of honesty.

Mehitobel Wilson has been publishing horror fiction since 1999. She is a Bram Stoker Award nominee, and many of her stories have been granted Honorable Mentions in the Year's Best Fantasy and Horror series. Bel's been a dog groomer, an industrial painter, a runway model, a belt worker in a factory, a cigarette girl at a movie theater, an audio/visual technician, a Latin tutor, a truck dispatcher, and a waitress, among other things. She's lived in the backwoods and on the streets. Now she lives (in a house) in the Deep South, prefers Jack, beer, and Marlboros, and inflicts Hong Kong rap music on the unwary.

Format: Paperback
Well I am French and love good food and wine. These Sirens are the equivalent of a five star meal in Paris: balanced yet surprising, beautiful,well paired, stylish... What else doesone want? Ah ok... good food is like good erotica it teases you to no-end... Well guess what: eroticism and fear are two main ingredients of their dishes... So for the fraction of a price of that good meal in Paris you can own this great anthology (plus you do not have to put up with arrogant Parisians like me!). Run do not walk... these kind of deals do not last....

Format: Paperback
Describing SINS OF THE SIRENS is exceedingly difficult as I reflect on its fourteen stories. These stories are unlike anything else you will read. Loren Rhoads, Maria Alexander, and Mehitobel Wilson could all be easily categorized as horror writers, but that title is too simple to really capture their eclectic style. Christ Faust writes hard boiled crime novels these days, but her SINS stories too represent such a vast world, a place where she can tap into deep, hidden emotions more than just fear.

Rhoads, Alexander, Wilson, and Faust are the Sirens and these stories are their sins... They become ours (the readers) as well. Haunting, beautiful, frightening, and sparking desire & fear in places that have until now eluded you, SINS is a MUST READ for every fan of dark fiction.

Every single story in this collection is a masterpiece. There is psychological terror, a science-fiction influenced tale of revolution, erotic stories of bondage, insatiable desire... SINS has got it all!

Every story is a wonderful surprise, each going in unexpected directions, awakening those hibernating senses.
