Today on Ink Heist, we are excited to participate in a cover reveal for Lullabies for Suffering, a new anthology of addiction themed horror from Wicked Run Press. Lullabies for Suffering is a follow-up to Wicked Run’s brilliant 2017 anthology, Garden of Fiends. Garden of Fiends introduced a brilliant and original concept and perfectly captured the struggles of addiction and the horrors they inflict on those affected by it. Yes, it was a dark and visceral collection of horror, but there were moments of hope throughout that made this one of our favorite anthologies. The stories are raw, honest and explore various subgenres of horror. The one constant though is the lasting impact these stories leave on the reader. So when Wicked Run announced they were working on a follow up, it immediately shot to the top of our most anticipated anthologies. Lullabies for Suffering features brand new stories from some of Horror’s most engaging voices and promises to deliver captivating stories that will haunt you long after you reach the last page.
Be sure to keep reading below for a synopsis from Wicked Run that perfectly captures the essence of these anthologies, a full Table of Contents and some exciting things Wicked Run has in store for the lead up to the release of Lullabies for Suffering.
This collection is a follow up to Garden of Fiends but certainly not a sequel, for the scope is larger, and the volume bigger. Each story features the insidious nature of addiction. Damaged humans craving for highs and wholeness but finding something darker, more tragic, and more horrific on the other side.
Addiction may start like a sweet lullaby sung by a trusted loved one, washing away the pains of the day and wrapping you in the warmness of the womb. But soon enough, this warm state of bliss becomes a cold shiver. The ecstasy and dreams become nightmares, and for the sick and suffering addict, we can’t stop listening to the lullaby. We crave to hear the siren song as it rips us apart.
An incredibly talented group of writers sing these songs of suffering. You’re invited to listen.
