A BRIGHT ENCHANTED SUFFERING by Eric LaRocca
LGBTQ+ Author to Release New Chilling Horror Collection
An #OwnVoices Release, author Eric LaRocca explores the darker side of humanity in his upcoming horror collection
Hot off the success of his independently released debut novella, Starving Ghosts in Every Thread, the author’s new collection will hit shelves on Tuesday, March 30th, 2021. Illustrator Dave Dick has also joined the project to illustrate drawings to complement each of the collection’s novelettes.
An invitation to terror in broad daylight.
Author Eric LaRocca brings together two chilling never-before-published novelettes which explore the darker aspects of humanity – a world in which horrible things can and will happen in the light of day.
In “You’re Not Supposed to Be Here,” a married couple and their infant child find themselves at the mercy of a seemingly benevolent couple who are eager to play a game with horrifying consequences.
In “Where Flames Burned Emerald as Grass,” a widower and his daughter meet a peculiar gentleman in the Costa Rican rainforest with sinister intentions.
Shocking and disturbing, A Bright Enchanted Suffering plumbs the depths of human depravity and showcases the most fearsome monster of all – our fellow man.
Darkness can still touch you even if the lights are on.
A BRIGHT ENCHANTED SUFFERING
“Eric LaRocca wields his prose like a scalpel, peeling away the thin skin of civility’s charade to write straight from the haunted, bloody heart of it all. Doling out brutal insights and the rare tender mercy like medicine, LaRocca doesn’t flinch from exposing the horrors hidden just beneath the day-to-day.”
Gordon B. White, author of As Summer's Mask Slips and Other Disruptions
