The debut Dark Arts Books release compiles 12 "new and used" horror stories by four darkly humorous and horrifically dark Chicago authors: Jay Bonansinga, Bill Breedlove, John Everson and Martin Mundt.
CANDY IN THE DUMPSTER includes Jay Bonansinga's short story "Stash," which inspired the movie of the same name featuring Marilyn Chambers and Tim Kazurinsky. It also includes one of John Everson's most popular erotic horror shorts, "Pumpkin Head," a modern "Great Pumpkin" patch fable with a femme fatale twist that has been reprinted several times and translated into French. Martin Mundt's disturbingly funny "A Perfect Plan" opens the book with a Very Bad Things-style descent into personal disaster and Bill Breedlove contributes his typically rapier-sharp wit in the boys shouldn't play with boys who play with dolls tale "The Lost Collection." The book also features eight more must-read stories by the four authors, and a nod-and-a-wink introduction by another lauded Chicago horror veteran, Mort Castle.
The YEAR'S BEST FANTASY & HORROR anthology lauded CANDY IN THE DUMPSTER noting: "A few of the originals are utterly tasteless and utterly hilarious, particularly one each by Martin Mundt and Bill Breedlove."
