What flavor is your nightmare?
Forty-nine authors have come together to tell us theirs. Each story is unique in its horror but all should be read with the lights on and the shadows kept at bay, because some stories tend to stay with you even after the book is closed.
From established authors, to people putting pen to paper for the first time.
Books of Horror presents its inaugural Community Anthology.

(from the preface)
The most accessible of supernatural entities, arguably even more so than ghosts, the witch is a wildflower, ready to thrive anywhere she chooses to take root.
She might be a force of nature, a mother, a maiden, a crone. Or she might not be a she at all, manifesting instead as a non-binary person, or a young boy looking to understand how he fits in in a man’s world. She is the knowing outsider, the cunning killer, the healing center, the avenger of the disenfranchised, and patriarchy’s perennial scapegoat.
Sometimes she acts as a window on other realities. Sometimes she stands as the dam holding these alien realities back.
In this volume, she’s dug her roots deep into the soil of the American Southeast. Here, you’ll find Baba Yaga reimagined as a Southern socialite, Kentucky granny witches, Texas water witches, Tennessee tricksters, North Carolina guardians, Georgia killers, Mississippi virgins, and Louisiana whores.
This collection is a love letter to the witch, in all her glorious and fearsome incarnations, because—you have to admit—even when she’s wicked, she’s still damned good.
Featuring stories by Lucy Bennett-Gray, Keily Blair, R. A. Busby, Rachel Coffman, Amanda Crum, Indigo Giordana-Altú , James Allen Grady, E.C. Hanson, G. Lloyd Helm, Rowan Hill, Valerie Hunter, Ruthann Jagge, Peter Lundt, Rod Martinez, Louise Pieper, Linday Pugh, Rie Sheridan Rose, Angela M. Sanders, Joe Scipione, J.J. Smith, Nathan Leigh Taylor, Lamont A. Turner, & B.F. Vega.
Some of the stories in this collection include elements of violence, violence against children, sexual assault, consensual sex, and profanity. It is a book about witches after all.
PRAISE FOR "GOOD SOUTHERN WITCHES"
"Like any successful conjuring brew, GOOD SOUTHERN WITCHES is that precise mélange of carefully-curated anthology ingredients: powerful tales, enduring voices, and enchantments of the darkest desires. Stir and serve freely upon devotees of macabre imagination."
—Eric J. Guignard, award-winning author and editor, including "That Which Grows Wild" and "Doorways to the Deadeye"
"Who knew there was so much old magic buried in the red dirt of America's South? If you like spellbinding tales of powerful women and dark witchery, then this brew's for you."
—Lisa Morton, author of "Calling the Spirits: A History of Seances"
