STRANGER BY NIGHT
Mass-market paperback. Pinnacle, July 2005.
Features the Edward Lee story “Dead Girls in Love.”
Sex and horror, intertwined since the beginning of the human race, take on all new twists and turns (and contortions) in Stranger By Night, sixth in the Hot Blood erotic horror anthology series — with one of its most illustrious lists of contributors. Two of the greatest UK horror writers, Ramsey Campbell and Brian Lumley, each contribute. Actress/scream queen Brinke Stevens contributes original fiction. Comics illustrator and TV writer Bruce Jones contributes to the Hot Blood series for the first time, while Graham Masterton returns with another classic. Lucy Taylor and Brian Hodge are among the other brilliant horror writers, 18 stories in all, that probe every dark desire. Heliocentric Net said “whatever your tastes, be prepared to be titillated and terrorized,” and according to Deathrealm, “Stranger by Night demonstrates that the Hot Blood books haven’t lost their steam in any sense of the phrase.”
