Today’s top Horror and SF authors pay tribute to C.H.U.D. in this anthology of original fiction.
C.H.U.D. is a genre defying, cult classic film featuring monsters living in the sewers below New York. The stories in this anthology expand the world created by the film and add depth to the C.H.U.D. universe like never before. From stories of apocalyptic horror and all out monster action, to tales of underground parties interrupted by uninvited guests and evening strolls that end in death, this anthology will leave you both smiling and breathless.
Relive the fear as these original stories take you beyond the movie to events that occurred before, during, and after the scenes we remember so well.
Includes C.H.U.D. related stories by Jonathan Maberry, Tim Waggoner, JG Faherty, Mort Castle, Michael H. Hanson, Martin Powell, Ben Fisher, Jason White, Chad Lutzke, Ross Baxter, Philip C Perron, David Bernstein, Nick Cato, Alex Laybourne, Christopher Fulbright, Angeline Hawkes, David Robbins, Robert Waters, Greg Mitchell, Ryan C.

Interview with the publisher/editor:
So what makes this horror anthology so special?
Joe Mynhardt: It’s based on a classic film, and written from the perspective of professional authors who grew up watching this movie. Its locations vary from the New York scenes used in the movie (including those claustrophobic tunnels) to the countryside and even aboard a ship off the coast of England.
Join fierce warriors ~ male and female, old and young ~ in savage battles of survival and supremacy. Ride with them to face hordes of vile foes. Witness their struggles and sacrifices before demons real and internal. Marvel at their mighty deeds and stride beside them into the halls of heroic fantasy. Close upon the heels of Howard's Conan, Moorcock's Elric, and Leiber's Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser come the heroes of today: Ninshi, Brom, Kabar, Sigurd, Morlock, and Gerhard and Ez-Arod. Unsheathe your sword and follow in their steps if you dare.
Make no mistake, though. These are horror writers and the stories they've written are not pretty. Traditional and non-traditional horror, dark humor, ghosts, serial killers, alternate universes, magic, zombies, and other creatures of the night hide between these pages. Shadows move and dead fingers stroke unsuspecting flesh, razor sharp knives shimmer in the moonlight, and unknown things hide in closets and under the bed. The stories here are as varied as the writers themselves. If you're a fan of horror, you will not be let down.
Despite the horrific nature of these tales, however, their very existence in "Dark Light" stands as proof there will always be a light at the end of every tunnel.
Features stories by horror legend Graham Masterton, Bram Stoker winner Joe McKinney, John Shirley, author of the "Crow" screenplay, Ray Garton, Wrath James White, William Todd Rose, Scott Nicholson, Tim Lebbon, Deborah LeBlanc, Tim Curran, Nancy Kilpatrick, Stephen Graham Jones, Angeline Hawkes, Christopher Fulbright, Jeffrey Thomas, Lisa Morton, and many more.
SKELOS is edited by Mark Finn, author of the World Fantasy Award-nominated BLOOD AND THUNDER; Chris Gruber, editor of Robert E. Howard's BOXING STORIES from the University of Nebraska Press; and Jeffrey Shanks, co-editor of the Bram Stoker Award-nominated UNIQUE LEGACY OF WEIRD TALES.
But add a dash of the risque and the result is Spicy Slipstream Stories. Here the adventure and bosoms of the old pulps are blended with the stylistic innovations and reader affect of that non-genre genre, slipstream. Embrace the way a sweat, the bruises, the upper thighs of these stories collected by editors Jay Lake and Nick Mamatas.

Standouts in this sf anthology include James Reilly's Terra Tango 3, Jennifer Pelland's Personal Jesus, and Michele Lee's Meat World. These stories are cutthroat, sinister, sometimes lonely and always disturbing." -Jeff Carlson, international bestselling author of Plague Zone

Set amidst the turbulent backdrop of World War II, Quinn and Anna Rosa find themselves entangled with Odell Roberts, a high-priced artifact thief, his elusive mother, and the occult-obsessed German chancellor Adolf Hitler. "The Fantastical Acquisition of the Sword of General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna", marries the hard-boiled style of the pulps with sensuality and slipstream. A little bit pulpy, a little bit science fiction and fantasy, Quinn and Anna Rosa take the reader on a crazy romp through history that is full of twists and surprises.
(A 9,200-word novelette)
In 1944, Japan cut off Allied access to China’s Pacific coast. Chinese airbases were needed for attacks on Axis powers. Working together, 84,000 Allied and Chinese forces flew dangerous missions through the Himalayan Mountains on a 530-mile stretch called "The Hump." From 1942 to 1945, over 1500 airmen were killed, 2000 planes destroyed, and over 81 planes listed as missing along the treacherous air route. On March 27, 1944, an unarmed Curtiss C-46, operated by an inexperienced crew, left the airbase in Kunming, China en route to Sookerating, India. During the flight, a crewman shouted over the airwaves for directional bearings. There was no further communication with the plane. Subsequent searches failed to locate a crash site...
When Billy Farber came to, the first thing he realized was intense pain. After he struggled through the agony, he heard people around him speaking a language like nothing he'd heard before. It wasn't Chinese, Hindi, Punjabi or any other Indian tongue, and it sure as hell wasn't English. One thing was certain, he was lucky to be alive -- or was he?
"Flying the Hump" takes the reader on an action-packed, edge-of-your-seat adventure in this lost world thriller. History and fantasy collide with horror and weird fiction to bring you a World War II tale as harrowing as flying the hump.
