Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke And Other Misfortunes (Paperback)Eric Larocca (author)
Featuring three dark, utterly unforgettable tales of body horror, Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke And Other Misfortunes blends heavy themes with striking imagery and masterful language.
Three dark and disturbing horror stories from an astonishing new voice, including the viral-sensation tale of obsession, Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke. For fans of Kathe Koja, Clive Barker and Stephen Graham Jones.
A whirlpool of darkness churns at the heart of a macabre ballet between two lonely young women in an internet chat room in the early 2000s - a darkness that threatens to forever transform them once they finally succumb to their most horrific desires. A couple isolate themselves on a remote island in an attempt to recover from their teenage son's death, when a mysterious young man knocks on their door during a storm... and a man confronts his neighbour when he discovers a strange object in his backyard, only to be drawn into an ever-more dangerous game.
From Bram Stoker Award finalist Eric LaRocca, this is devastating, beautifully written horror from one of the genre's most cutting-edge voices. What have you done today to deserve your eyes?

'A startling affair... I'll be cleaning up particles of darkness in my office for weeks.' - Josh Malerman, author of Bird Box
'Bleak, clever, edgy, and vicious. Eric LaRocca draws his readers in for something they will never expect and never forget.' - Sadie Hartman
'LaRocca's combination of structure, adept pacing and masterful language is more complex than meets the eye... a must-read for fans of body horror, epistolary novels, and depravity' - Library Journal
'A hauntingly elegant, masterfully written, and ultimately devastating indictment of cruel manipulation and even crueler submission. This is one deeply fucked-up heartbreaker. You have been warned' - John Skipp, author of The Light at the End
