Michelle Scalise Here is part of the review from Horror World of my new collection, COLLECTIVE SUICIDE, from Crossroads Press:

"Collective Suicide is an amazing collection of extremely high quality speculative fiction and stimulating poetry. Scalise’s work hearkens back to a period when horror fiction followed no commercially defined formula in both style and substance. Her tales are heavily infused with atmosphere; allowing it equal weight as her plotting. Scalise also assumes that we are intelligent readers, letting our imaginations define the terrors she proffers without resorting to depicting extreme acts of violence or the video-ready images born of horror movies. Readers will be hard pressed to find other contemporary horror or fantasy authors who can pen such tales with as much flair and intelligence as Scalise does." -Horror World.

And you can read a free excerpt right here at Goodreads. Check it out and post a review!
