Editor John Edward Lawson welcomes you to a world where flesh-greed rules the day. He has assembled a host of writers who are committing the worst atrocities known to man...to paper. This anthology aims to go where no others have, beyond the "mouth of madness" or the "belly of the beast" and straight into the minds of cannibals. The subject matter alone is guaranteed to raise eyebrows even among readers who have had everything thrown at them.

Of Flesh and Hunger promises to be the most controversial anthology of the new millennium, shocking readers not only with its extreme subject matter but with the deft prose our authors specialize in. The stories are at turns surreal, comic, gory, drenched with atmosphere, and action-packed; one common thread is the unique take each author offers us, keeping the subject fresh for your consumption. Take a seat at the feast and put yourself at the mercy of flesh and hunger.

Let your eyes adjust to the darkness contained within this unparalleled tome of terrifying poetry. Let yourself be drawn down into the mausoleum of decayed verbiage and grim visions, meeting the poets your mortician always warned you about. These seventeen international authors gathered in the cemetery are already well known within horror poetry circles for their diverse imaginations. Deftly shifting from free verse to sonnets, from grotesque to darkly comical, the Cemetery Poets scream from beyond the grave with deadly accuracy. Editor Peggy Jo Shumate asks, "Do you have a dread of shadowy places?" The answer, after reading Cemetery Poets: Grave Offerings, will undoubtedly be a resounding yes! Step inside the cemetery gates and
savor every wretched flavor of fear ever conceived.
Here is a collection of stories for those of you who shudder at the thought of gulping down one more of Aunt Ida's "famous" cookies, who dread facing another interminable discourse from Uncle Earl about pig farm economics. If the first few notes of "Away in a Manger" cause you to grab something sharp and look around frantically for an eye to stab it in this book was written for you.

This collection of tales comes from the quill of Penemue, fallen angel and bringer of ink and pen to the children of men. Listen as he recounts his tales, both new and old, of his brethren demons when they  walked the earth of men. This volume contains twelve stories from the darkest new authors in horror today. Tales that will not only haunt you, but will also delight.
