Trigger Warning: Curses by Madness Heart Press

Trigger Warning: Curses is an extreme anthology compiled and edited by Christine Morgan. Each story involves a curse of some type afflicting the story teller. There are some really fun, messy stories in this compilation and some seriously dark and disturbing stories too! The anthology is made up of 15 unique tales of mayhem with several authors that are new to me! Some of the stories that stuck out to me are to follow below.

“How to Shrug Off the Shoulder Man” by Mike James Davis is a tale that immediately draws the reader in. A supernatural entity is at work depressing his host. Can he get rid of it before it’s too late? This one takes us through the desperation and despair a person will go through.

“Dead Breath” by Shaun Avery is about a man always aroused and looking for his next piece of action. He finds that he always has the peculiar taste in his mouth right before the deed is done. This story surprised me immensely and I loved it!!

“Aka Manto” by Benjamin R. Barnes is a fantastic tale that harkens back to Japanese folklore. A young girl has a run in with a supernatural being and has to find a way to save herself or else!

“Djinn in a Bottle” by David Wesley Hill is a hilarious story of some bubbling idiots that manage to release a Djinn. Will they get their wishes, or more than they wished for? I really loved this story too!!

“The Pinkish Mess of Infidelity” by P.J Blakey-Novis is a man is given the task to follow specific directions from his soon to be ex-wife. Can he hold out and make good on his word or fail spectacularly?

“The Bleeder” by Susan Snyder is a harrowing tale about family and community traditions. Simpler times are not always easier. This story was heart wrenching but definitely worth the read!

“What Finally Ended the Jessup Curse” by Douglas Ford is a story about family and how generational rut is really a thing. Eddie is a kid trying to escape that rut.

I’m excited to read more from some of these new to me authors! The book is outstanding, so go get your copy!! Release date is March 15th!
