Body Shocks: Extreme Tales of Body Horror edited by Ellen Datlow
Trade Paperback – Tachyon – Nov 2021 – 377 pages
The most terrifying thing that you can possibly imagine is your own body in the hands of a monster.
Or worse, in the hands of another human being
In this definitive anthology of body horror selected by a World Horror Grandmaster, you’ll find the unthinkable and the shocking: a couture designer preparing for an exquisitely grotesque runway show; a vengeful son seeking the parent who bred him as plasma donor; a celebrity-kink brothel that inflicts plastic surgery on sex workers; and organ-harvesting doctors who dissect a living man without anesthetic.
A groundbreaking new horror anthology, curated by the genre’s leading editor and featuring a stellar contributors list, focuses on one of the most basic—yet most terrifying—things: The human body.
