Tagline: Once you’ve done the most unforgivable thing, what will you do next?
by Loren Rhoads
In the first full-length collection of her edgy, award-winning short stories, Loren Rhoads punctures the boundaries between horror, dark fantasy, and science fiction in a maelstrom of sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll. Lisa Morton provides the book’s introduction.
Ghosts, succubi, naiads, vampires, the Wild Hunt, and the worst predator in the woods stalk these pages, alongside human monsters who follow their cravings past sanity or sense.
“With Unsafe Words, Loren Rhoads has created a lyrical kaleidoscope of a collection, whose shifting genres reveal ever-evolving visions of shining beauty and immense darkness. I loved it.”
— Brian Hodge, author of The Immaculate Void
“Loren Rhoads is the writer you want to hold your hand on the long, strange walk into hell.”
— Meg Elison, author of the Road to Nowhere series
“Rhoads has a gift. She takes you deep and, when you come out on the other side, you’re just glad you’re still alive.”
— J. Scott Coatsworth, Captain Awesome of Queer Sci Fi
“If you’re already familiar with Loren’s work, you know that you’re in for an evocative, rich mélange. If you’re just now discovering her…prepare yourself.”
—Lisa Morton, in the introduction
