Mestiza Blood: A Short Story Collection of Nightmares, Dreams, Desires & Visions of the Chicana Experience by V. Castro

Paperback – Flame Tree Press – 2022 – 208 pages

V. Castro weaves urban legend, folklore, life experience, and heartache in this personal journey beginning in south Texas: a bar where a devil dances the night away; a street fight in a neighborhood that may not have been a fight after all; a vengeful chola at the beginning of the apocalypse; mind swapping in the not so far future; satan who falls and finds herself in a brothel in Amsterdam; the keys to Mictlan given to a woman after she dies during a pandemic.

The collection finishes with two longer tales: The Final Porn Star is a twist on the final girl trope and slasher, with a creature from Mexican folklore; and Truck Stop is an erotic horror romance with two hearts: a video store and a truck stop.
