Q: What happens when heavy music inspires dark fiction?

A: "Heavy metal horror heaven" (Jim McLeod, Ginger Nuts of Horror) and "one of the things that make having an e-reader worthwhile" (KentAllard, Dead in the South).

The concept behind Living After Midnight: Hard and Heavy Stories is simple: six authors came up with six stories (63,000 words) of horror and dark fantasy inspired by the music of their favorite hard rock and heavy metal bands. From the music of Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Spooky Tooth, Motorhead, and (of course) Judas Priest come exciting tales of werewolves, zombies, ghosts, wizards, demons, serial killers--and giant snakes! You don't have to like the music to enjoy these stories. They are mythic and modern, British and American, long and short--hard and heavy--all on their own.

"Any die-hard metal fan will absolutely devour this well-edited, well-written anthology." -- Hellnotes

"A bevy of loud stories perfect for those of us who've wrecked our ears on a lifetime misspent listening to the heaviest of heavy metal... They read like classics." -- Joe Donn Martin, author of Too Poor for Texas

"A good variety pack of scary stories... a wide assortment of horror with a supernatural bent... I plowed through this book inside of a few hours -- it was an easy read, and a satisfying one as well." -- Patrick D'Orazio, author of Comes the Dark
