Just in time for your last minute holiday shopping, the latest Erie Tales can’t wait to remove that uncomfortable face, pop open a cold body, gnaw away the day’s troubles.

Each story features masks — physical, psychological, supernatural…

Sit back and relax, if you can, and enjoy our examination of the masks we all wear and the horrible things which lie beneath. If anything gets too intense, just lift yourself up with the knowledge that the GLAHW has been here for 10 years and the only places we go are those dark spaces that you don’t want to examine on your own.

Don’t worry, we’ll take you with us.

Edited by Michael Cieslak, ETX contains stories by Peggy Christie, J.M. Van Horn, MontiLee Stormer, Cassie Carnage, and Mark Matthews, with cover art by the inimitable Don England.
Erie Tales X is now available on with all of the other fantastic GLAHW titles!  They’re also Amazon Prime eligable, so you can have them before the Solstice, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and even the closing days of Hanukkah!
No horror fan left behind!

Amanda’s Recurring Nightmares

GLAHW Member, Ken MacGregor had a brilliant idea for 2013’s Monster Mash for Literacy Bash  – raffle off the opportunity for the winner’s name to become the sole theme of a future Anthology. Several brave souls went into the hat and one emerged victorious.

Thus, Recurring Nightmares was born, and GLAHW is proud to announce the debut of our new series.

Le Blurb:

Seven horror writers are gifted the name of a real person and told to do whatever they want to her. In the seven resulting short stories,  Amanda is tortured, terrified and made monstrous; she is killed at least once. She won the right to have this done – and the writers couldn’t wait to unleash their imaginations on Amanda
Welcome to the inaugural edition of Recurring Nightmares, the Special Raffle Prize of the annual Monster Mash for Literacy Bash thrown by the Great Lakes Association of Horror Writers (GLAHW) benefiting the Dominican and Siena Literacy Organizations in Detroit. 
These are Amanda’s nightmares. We hope they become  yours, too.
