Book Description

Deadly After Dark, fourth in the genre-defining Hot Blood erotic horror anthology series, pushes the envelope the furthest yet.  Two Bram Stoker nominated stories, Lucy Taylor’s searing “Thing of Which We Do Not Speak” and Edward Lee’s brilliantly grisly “Mr. Torso,”  demonstrate the depth and range of the best erotic horror, and highlight a 14 story collection that will both arouse your senses and make your blood run cold.  Other contributors include award-winning and bestselling mystery author Max Allan Collins, making an all too rare foray into the dark side of suspense, as well as pioneering work from contemporary horror master Jack Ketchum, and new fiction by both Graham Watkins and Graham Masterton.  It’s no surprise Fangoria said “Deadly After Dark is a worthy continuation of a series that has yet to reach its climax.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Salacious, seductive, sensual and spicy! 25 Feb. 2006
By - Kasia S. - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am a horror book lover yet this is my first time reading short horror stories by different writers in one volume. I was really impressed how well all the writing went together. No story was out of place and ever single one had some shocking, gory or totally out there ending. Of course the spicy part is that this is a collection of short erotic horror stories and man, some of them left me sitting there with my hand over my mouth in disbelief of the crazy story I just read. It appears to me that sex and horror go hand in hand like Hansel and Gretel and they are nearly synonymous with today's great writers of such genre.

Writers contributing to this volume were Lucy Taylor, Edward Lee, Sidney Williams, Graham Watkins, Michael Garrett, Jeff Gelb, Max Allan Collins, A.R. Morlan, Edo van Belkon, Jack Ketchum, Steve Rasnic Tem, Bentley Little, Claudia O'Keefe and my favorite writer of all time Graham Masterton.

I was only familiar with a handful of writers here but I simply loved all the stories. The book also gives a great foreword on the life and evolution of erotic fiction denouncing the myth of shame and making this great guilty pleasure a suitable past time. I mean I got this book at my local Manhattan library (and I bought a few others from the series) so no one should feel bad for reading this naughty stuff, it's simply too good to pass up.

Few pieces were totally gross and sinful; and only Edward Lee and few others could come up with such a bizarre, lewd, fleshly, filthy hot stories such as the ones I just read. If you are familiar with Lee, Ketchum, Little and Taylor you know what this book is about!

I don't want to spoil anything, since many of them are about 20 pages in length, and writing a short story is an art. It takes precise timing and skill that please take my word, if you like horror and you don't mind some steamy, kinky and lascivious writing then this is a fun hot read. Each story had a different take and some had males and some females as main characters, but they were not all they seemed. The good ones sure rotted fast and the bad ones only got worse. I loved this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars TANTALISING 5 April 2002

This is a classic for lovers of dark genre. A fan since the first hot blood release, Deadly after dark carries the trademark of cleverly combining erotica and horror into a collection of short stories. Very readable and recommended.
5.0 out of 5 stars Erotic Horror to the Extreme and Keeps Getting Better! 23 May 2013
By Gerry Griffiths - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the fifth book that I have read in The Hot Blood Series and I have to say every story in this particular anthology is superb, thanks to editors Jeff Gelb and Michael Garret for their keen eyes for shocking horror. Edward Lee's, "Mr. Torso" about an abductor who mutilates his victims into incubators will undoubtedly make readers cringe and squirm. Graham Masterton's "Suffer Kate" examines the destructive nature of erotic asphyxiation and Bentley Little's, "The Numbers Game" illustrates the suggestive sexual power of numerology, along with many more great stories. Highly recommended.

I loved this book and all of the subsequent ones in the series. The stories are wicked, sexy and refreshing. Many are written by some of the Masters of the short story. I would recommend the whole series to anyone who enjoys a bit of fright with their sex.
