Cutting Block, now an imprint of Farolight Publishing, has been dedicated to producing the best in artistic, well-crafted horror since 2006. Our titles range from old favorite anthologies – like the Bram Stoker Award(R) nominated Tattered Souls series – to our new releases, including Lorne Dixon’s critically acclaimed, horror nouveau novel, Blue Eel, and e-stories, like our new Single Slices tale, The Lottons Show, by Marsheila Rockwell and Jeffrey J. Mariotte; as well as more outstanding anthologies, like the soon-to-be-released Shadows Over Main Street Volume 2, edited by D.A. Ward and Doug Murano.
We hope you’ll join us as we continue to take you into uncharted regions of terror and delight!
Long suspected of guilt in his daughter Madeline’s disappearance, Branson Turaco takes an abrupt turn in his life when a lock of Madeline’s hair is found in a child predator’s home… What remains of a man, once he sheds his humanity in the name of vengeance?
“By turns and yet simultaneously, the novel is mystery, crime fiction, paranormal, contemporary sci-fi, otherworldly, thriller, revenge plot, grief study, marital collapse, police procedural, parental love (and grief), literary, poetic imagery… BLUE EEL is an enclosed universe of its own, neither joyful nor beautiful, but in Lorne Dixon’s talent, it is a universe vivid, powerfully impacting, emotionally devastating, and beautiful in its conception.” – Mallory Heart Reviews
“In BLUE EEL, Lorne Dixon brings us fresh new monsters and pits them against characters that are tortured and flawed, driven and complex, sympathetic and realistic. Equal parts graphic supernatural horror and tautly paced psychological thriller, BLUE EEL delivers a final twist that will hit you like a punch in the guts.” – TRACIE MCBRIDE, author of “Ghosts Under Glass” and other stories, and winner of the Sir Julius Vogel Award for Best New Talent
“Take a horror story, add in science fiction elements, and tie everything together with a solid investigative approach backed by psychological depth, and you have in BLUE EEL a multi-faceted novel that draws horror and mystery readers and evolves into a gripping yarn of bigger pictures, which proves hard to put down and satisfyingly impossible to predict.” – D. DONOVAN, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
Single Slices: The Lottons Show
Marsheila Rockwell and Jeffrey J. Mariotte
Are you afraid of clowns? How about clowns and puppets? Neither is Dave, until a client at his self-storage facility defaults, and Dave takes possession of the unit’s contents. What he finds is a nostalgic glimpse into the mystery of Lottons, the TV clown from his boyhood.
But he soon realizes that this treasure is no bargain–unless it’s the kind made with the devil, from which there’s no coming back. Nostalgia, Dave learns, is for suckers, because yesterday never stays buried, and tomorrow can last a very long time indeed…
“I only wish it was longer.” – M.C.
