Look Out For … Thanatrauma by Steve Rasnic Tem

Thanatrauma by Steve Rasnic Tem - cover

“With his latest collection, Tem brings together over twenty stories—four published here for the first time—covering the fear of death and dying, including a long lost undistributed tale from the annals of Weird Tales.” 

Thanatrauma.

Death, grief, loss, ageing.

Fundamental fears we all have in common.

Relentless. Inevitable.

Unescapable.

“Thanatrauma: the dread of it erodes you, the shadows waiting at the end, the impending conclusion, the troubling dream from which you will not wake.”

 

 

Why we’re excited about this book:

Steve Rasnic Tem is a legend in the horror fiction industry. Active for over 40 years, Tem has won the Bram Stoker Award for excellence in fiction numerous times with his own writing, as well as collaborations with his late wife, Melanie Tem. Tem is the author of Deadfall Hotel, Here With the Shadows, The Harvest Child and Other Fantasies, Excavation, Blood Kin, his latest novel UBO, and Figures Unseen: Selected Stories among others. With his latest collection, Tem brings together over twenty stories—four published here for the first time—covering the fear of death and dying, including a long lost undistributed tale from the annals of Weird Tales. Publishers Weekly says: “World Fantasy Award winner Tem (The Night Doctor) is at his sharpest and most crushing in this collection of 21 horror shorts … essential for fans of dark speculative fiction, surrealist travelogues, and meditations on loss.”

Forthcoming from Valencourt Books 9 November 2021, Thanatrauma by Steve Rasnic Tem is available for pre-order now.
