Transgressive fiction authors write stories some are afraid to tell. Stories with taboo subjects, unique voices, shocking images—nothing safe or dry. Burnt Tongues is a collection of transgressive stories hand-selected by Chuck Palahniuk, author of Fight Club, as the best of The Cult Workshop, his official fan website, selected by a rigorous nomination and vetting process. These stories run the gamut from horrific and fantastic to humorous and touching, but each leaves a lasting impression. Some may say even a scar.
