Throughout history, there have been certain moral evils so entangling, so alluring, that they routinely give birth to countless other evils in the hearts of human beings. From antiquity, these "capital vices" have been known as the seven deadly sins.

Now, from the editors who brought you Cutting Block Single Slices and Shadows Over Main Street, comes an all-new novella anth

Kudos to Patrick Beltran and D. Alexander Ward for bringing together seven talented authors to blend their wildly different voices for this anthology.
"I've nurtured every sensation man has been inspired to have. I cared about what he wanted and I never judged him. Why? Because I never rejected him—in spite of all his imperfections, I'm a fan of man! I'm a humanist. Maybe the last humanist." Milton/Satan/Al Pachino in The Devil's Advocate

After hearing from some important people in the horror indu

*** Review copy received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. ***

I’ve been chomping at the bit to read this anthology pretty much since John F.D. Taff, the King of Pain, mentioned it in a few interviews, and it’s one of the most epic anthologies of the year. The stories were all novelettes that explored their assigned sins in decadent detail, all of which embroiled me completely in the narratives they presented. As well, I quite enjoyed the post-piece write-ups each author did ex

The blurb I offered on this book:

"Forget the ready-made horror trappings implicit in the notion of the Seven Deadly Sins. Forget, even, that you're dealing with seven of the best writers in today's horror fiction. Focus instead on these seven intense, soul-crunching stories, showing you all the ways the sin can affect the sinner. Imagine these stories as rotations of tales around the campfire, all meant for you; turning the page just means looking at the next person. THE SEVEN DEADLIEST serves

I could wax lyrical about this collection.
I could tell you how each sin has been cleverly integrated into stories that will put you through the emotional wringer.
I could tell you that you'll probably not read a book as good as this all year.

But I won't.

What I will tell you is that you'll be commiting the biggest of all sins if you don't buy this book.

One word...BRILLIANT!
