A compelling gothic fairytale by bruja and award-winning writer Maria DeBlassie.

The women of Sueño, New Mexico dont know how to live a life without sorrows. Thats La Lloronas doing. She roams the waterways looking for the next generation of girls to baptize, filling them with more tears than any woman should have to hold. And theres not much they can do about the Weeping Woman except to avoid walking along the riverbank at night and to try to keep their sadness in check. Thats what attracts her to them: the pain and heartache that gets passed down from one generation of women to the next.

Mercy knows this, probably better than anyone. She lost her best friend to La Llorona and almost found a watery grave herself. But she survived. Only she didnt come back quite right and she knows La Llorona wont be satisfied until she drags the one soul that got away back to the bottom of the river.

In a battle for her life, Mercy fights to break the chains of generational trauma and reclaim her soul free from ancestral hauntings by turning to the only things that she knows can save her: plant medicine, pulp books, and the promise of a love so strong not even La Llorona can stop it from happening. What unfolds is a stunning tale of one womans journey into magic, healing, and rebirth.

CW: assault, domestic violence, racism, colorism

Hungry Business: A Gothic Story about the Horrors of Dating by Maria DeBlassie
Genre- Gothic, Horror
Page Count – 20

From the award-winning author and bruja Maria DeBlassie comes a cozy Gothic short story about searching for connection in a world that’s forgotten the power of everyday magic. 

Looking for love can be deadly…  

You know how it goes.  You go out, hoping to meet someone.  You wade through your fair share of brainless automatons, lifeless bodies, and ravenous undead good at passing as human.    

The more you go out, the less hope you feel and the colder your body gets.  But you keep at it.  All you need is one beating heart to match your own before yours stops pumping altogether.  How hard can it be to find one living, breathing human in a city full of bodies?   

Dating.   

It’s hungry business.

Robert Rife loves (and writes) dark comedy science fiction and horror; the more weird, twisted, strange, odd, irreverent, ribald, and funny scary it is… the better. Just like him. And he thrived for years in the same legalized thievery as his ethics bereft protagonist. Plus, having been married and divorced twice, he’s been told tons about NOT being human. Yes, tons. He could write a book. This scribbling reptile is a great dad, miserably failed husband, all around horse’s butt, and (almost) Best Selling Author.

A storm was coming, brewing faster than a bubbling cauldron. People were missing; ghost towns popping up along coastlines. Strange creatures lurked in the shadows, the screams of their victims heard, but the carnage rarely seen. Still, the government and military refused to believe nature was their foe, insisting terrorism was to blame.

The once picturesque fishing town of Treacle was gone; lost to research after being commandeered by a General. Whatever the cause, the oceans had turned deadly, and the virus responsible was spreading inland. They needed a cure and fast. Unfortunately, all they had learned so far was the mutations in some people were much more extensive than others.

A radical decision was called for, but would it be the right choice? Pick up a copy of Sashimi and find out for yourself.
