Crypt Orchids by David J. Schow
Trade Paperback – Cimarron Street Books – Dec 2020 – 291 pages
Cimarron Street Books is pleased to bring you an all-new edition of CRYPT ORCHIDS — the fourth collection of short stories by award-winning author David J. Schow, a gathering of foreboding fiction that grabs the cutting edge barehanded, damns the spray of blood, and stays right in your face “until you want to go down on your knees and mumble for mercy,” according to best-selling author John Farris.
Crime. Psychos. Trashed relationships. Tainted love. Murder. Sinister plots. Evil connivance. Men in Suits with a Plan.
Not to mention hustlers, losers, cutthroats, gun fetishists, homicidal hitchhikers, demented road-hogs, serial killer impersonators, government torturers, and a Ripper named Jack. And most unnerving of all . . . vaudevillians (shudder).
Welcome to CRYPT ORCHIDS, where you’ll also meet a most murderous collector, a horror movie host who deals in the real thing, an innocent victim of a TV test screening, persnickety aliens with testicle-heads, a werewolf with a hook in place of a paw, a Mikey who does, in fact, hate everything, a hit man named Mister Bart, and a temperamental geezer with a lot to say about the environment and skinning people alive.
As Robert Bloch once said . . . it takes balls to make CRYPT ORCHIDS.
Enter and be enthralled. The Management assumes no responsibility for parts of you left scattered about.
