Why we’re excited about this book:

Within just a short amount of time, Eric LaRocca has taken the horror fiction world by storm. Author of the poetry collection Fanged Dandelion, Starving Ghosts in Every Thread, and most recently Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke. Eric’s short fiction has appeared in Rejected for Content, Infernal Ink Magazine, Stiff Things, and Year’s Best Hardcore Horror, Volume 2 among other publications. With this collection, LaRocca showcases his flair for combining twisted characters with tragic stories that capture the turmoil of the human condition. Chad Lutzke (Of Foster Homes and Flies) calls the book: “Daring, tense, and imaginative with tragically poetic prose. One of the best collections I’ve read in years.”, and Daniel Kraus (The Living Dead, Bent Heavens) says: “LaRocca proves that the sickest minds can have the biggest hearts—he’s a twisted, tender new talent.” 

Why Eric’s excited about this book:

“The Strange Thing We Become and Other Dark Tales is a deeply personal collection and showcases nearly two years’ worth of my development as a fictionist. I began writing many of these stories several years ago when I first met and fell in love with my partner. Many of these tales explore the dedication, the sacrifices, the hardships of caring for another person and consequently having to let them go to be free. Some of these stories are impossibly grim, some are uniquely unpleasant; however, they are all very much rooted in a place of feeling and affection. After all, love makes us become something decidedly quite strange.”
