The Art of Darkness

Rigor Amortis

October 11th, 2010 by Cobwebs

Rigor AmortisSo the subgenre of zombie fiction that we all thought, “Oh, hahaha that’ll never happen because it would end up like this,” has apparently happened and there’s now an anthology of zombie erotica.

Rigor Amortis styles itself as a collection of “Horror and erotica. Zombies and romance.”

Maybe a tender love story is your thing, a husband doting on his wife’s rotting corpse. Or perhaps a forbidden encounter in a secret cafĂ©, serving up the latest in delectable zombie cuisine, or some dirty, dirty dancing in the old-time honky-tonk. Voodoo sex-slaves and vending machine body-parts? You’ll find those here, too.

Whatever your flavor, these short tales of undead Romance, Revenge, Risk, and Raunch will leave you shambling, moaning, and clawing for more.

And come he slow, or come he fast, It is but Death who comes at last. -Sir Walter Scott, “Marmion”, 1808

There’s also a trailer on YouTube* just in case the written teaser isn’t sufficient, and a (now-closed) contest at Bitten by Books has a bit more information about the project and features several excerpts.

If you’re interested in what would sort of be the ultimate in dirty sex, this is the book for you.

Thanks, xJane!

*xJane, who sent the link, commented that the existence of the trailer “kind of baffles me, since it’s a /book/” and I have to agree.
