In these tense, macabre stories, bodies fall from the sky, perfect nails conceal grisly secrets and violence pulses behind gleaming façades. From hellish visions to obsessive relationships, acclaimed author Agustina Bazterrica takes us to the dark heart of human desires and fears.

Shocking, brutal, yet glinting with sharp humour, Nineteen Claws and a Black Bird is a breathtaking dive into human monstrousness from a master of contemporary horror.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Gothic and brilliantly grim, these uneasy tales from the author of Tender Is The Flesh are as shadowy as night... Bazterrica's darkly macabre imagination works like talon and beak... chilling - Daily Mail

In 19 Claws, Bazterrica resumes the study of the macabre that characterised Tender Is the Flesh. This time, however, the brutality of the female experience is cut through with a dark wit and a heavy dose of the fantastic - Guardian

Like Enriquez, Bazterrica writes fetishistic gore with a bewitching allure, creating... an overwhelming sense of dread and a fear of losing one's senses - Big Issue

A compelling and unsettling work that will leave readers questioning the boundaries between love, desire, and obsession - Glamour

This book will leave you shocked into contemplating the darker sides of human nature - Sci Fi Now

Dark, funny, weird, unique... The variety, originality, and strength of this collection cement her as one of the most exciting contemporary voices in speculative fiction - Locus Magazine

Provocative... Vivid and bizarre, this will entrance - Publishers Weekly

Written in her deliciously dark tone, Bazterrica's claws puncture polite society's fragile membrane, revealing the darkness writhing beneath - Litro

“Gloriously dark and darkly hilarious”

A wonderfully horrible little collection of stories which are always very dark but often very funny. Teicher vs. Nietzche is a standout for it's shocking humour and Candy Pink for it's horrible relatablity.... More
