A Collection of Dreamscapes by Christina Sng

2020 Bram Stoker Award® winner, 2021 Elgin Award runner-up, and 2020 Ladies of Horror Fiction Award nominee, A Collection of Dreamscapes brings to life dark mythologies, fairy tales, a league of monsters, and a journey into the unfathomable depths of the human heart. This widely lauded follow-up to Sng's Bram Stoker award-winning volume, A Collection of Nightmares, has been described by reviewers as "a captivating collection that is not to be missed", "immersive, creepy, accessible", "a dream, dark and fantastic", "haunting, stunning, and poignant", and "a poetry collection every public library should own". Available from Raw Dog Screaming Press and Amazon.

Tortured Willows

In Tortured Willows, four Southeast Asian women writers of horror expand on the exploration of otherness begun with the Bram Stoker Award-winning anthology Black Cranes: Tales of Unquiet Women. Like the willow, women have bent and bowed under the expectations and duty heaped upon them. Like the willow, they endure and refuse to break. With exquisite poetry, Christina Sng, Angela Yuriko Smith, Lee Murray, and Geneve Flynn invite you to sit beneath the tortured willow's gravid branches and listen to the uneasy shiver of its leaves.
