Look Out For … Wounds by Nathan Ballingrud

Wounds by Nathan Ballingrud -cover“With piercing, unflinching delivery, coupled with nuanced and complex characters, Ballingrud navigates our nightmare lands with a skilled hand, consistently bringing his ‘A’ game with every story.”

Satanists, pirates, urban malignancy, terrifying cell-phones.

Six tales of horror, including ‘The Visible Filth’, a novella of dread about a New Orleans bartender who finds a cell phone left behind after a knockdown-knuckle busting bar fight.

Wounds, the new collection from Nathan Ballingrud, dares to cross the slippery line between nightmare and reality.

Why we’re excited about this book:

Nathan Ballingrud should be a household name for This Is Horror readers. Author of North American Lake Monsters: Stories, and the previously mentioned novella ‘The Visible Filth’ (originally published by This Is Horror), Ballingrud has established himself as one of the best writers working today. With piercing, unflinching delivery, coupled with nuanced and complex characters, Ballingrud navigates our nightmare lands with a skilled hand, consistently bringing his ‘A’ game with every story. Retitled as Wounds, ‘The Visible Filth’ is now a forthcoming motion picture directed by Babak Anvari, starring Armie Hammer and Dakota Johnson. Releasing 9 April 2019 from Saga Press, Wounds by Nathan Ballingrud is available for pre-order now.
