Joyce Carol Oates, Lawrence Block, Ramsey Campbell, and others blur the lines between terror and temptation in fourteen hedonistic tales of horror.
Crimes of Passion, ninth in the multiple award-winning Hot Blood series of erotic horror, has a criminally good array of talent—fourteen stories by authors as diverse as literary giant Joyce Carol Oates, mystery giant Lawrence Block, horror giant Ramsey Campbell, musician Greg Kihn, and Brian Hodge, who pens the stunning Stoker Award finalist “Madame Babylon.” It’s “like a powerful handgun being cocked in your ear” (award-winning author Edward Bryant for Locus) and “should serve to warm your veins quite nicely during the long winters night” (Booklovers) Your eyes will be cuffed to the page until you finish this inescapable, essential volume. With some of the biggest authors and best stories, Crimes of Passion is erotic horror at its sinful, wonderful best.
