10th Anniversary Illustrated Edition!

A young bride and her future mother-in-law risk everything to escape it. A repentant father summons help from a pot of tar to ensure it. A starving woman learns from howling winds and a whispering host, just how fulfilling it can finally be. Can “it” be love?

Here is the classic debut collection of creepy tales from David Nickle, the award-winning author of such celebrated works as Volk: A Novel of Radiant Abomination and Eutopia: A Novel of Terrible Optimism. One of the foremost practitioners of Canadian Gothic fiction, Nickle is widely acclaimed for his evocative prose and sui generis imagination.

This 10th anniversary edition of Monstrous Affections includes—along with the original introduction by acclaimed author and journalist Michael Rowe—a foreword by Bram Stoker Award-winning author John Langan, an afterword by Shirley Jackson Award-winning author Laird Barron, and illustrations by David Nickle.
