A Different Darkness and Other Abominations


Product Description
Product Details


'Worthy of being mentioned alongside his horror contemporaries like Joe Hill, Stephen Graham Jones, and Paul Tremblay, Musolino is a writer whose stories are a dark journey through the shadowy Italian countryside, the depths of human despair, and the heights of imagination. ' - Library Journal (starred review)'Luigi Musolino enters the territories of superstition and folklore knowing that fairy tales are always terrible and legends hide unspeakable truths. Small towns, supermarkets, apartments, schools or farms: when horror touches reality, it becomes the only thing that exists. These stories have a distinctly European feel: there's a sense of old but not quite forgotten rituals, a touch of Pan and the deities that still linger behind the haunted fields and forests.' - Mariana Enr�quez, author of Things We Lost in the Fire and Our Share of Night'The pleasure of these stories lies in the writing itself, in Musolino's deft ability to find horror where we least expect. He embraces strangeness, and does so through an agile narrative style that keeps us on our toes ... Musolino has a strong and original voice, and uses it to get to some uniquely dark places. Rather than blood or gore, he's ultimately interested in what's truly terrifying: the vertiginous darkness that threatens to open up and swallow us.'- Brian Evenson, award-winning author of Song for the Unraveling of the World'Musolino will catch you in the meshes of his nightmarish landscapes and paranoid scenarios, his engrossing stories and powerful endings. He's the real thing.' - Michael Cisco, author of The Divinity Student 'An experience worthy of David Cronenberg, a sick and monstrous universe where authors like Barker and Ligotti would feel right at home.' - Nicola Lombardi, author of The Gypsy Spiders
