Join us for the launch of Charles Muir’s This is a Horror Book!
It’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Tales from the Crypt in this wildly satirical collection of short stories by Charles Austin Muir. There are chaos magic spells, killer rabbits, kung fu sorcerers, mystical brothels, mutant slasher villains and vampires afoot at the public library. This is a Horror Book is an absurdist’s dark literary ride through the unreal with mind-bending revelations at every stop.
