The 2010 Jersey Devil Press Anthology! A collection of twenty short stories, rife with Jersey attitude, dark humor, and zombies and werebears and unicorns, oh my! Featuring fiction by Mike Sweeney, yt sumner, M.R. Lang, Gavin Broom, and more, the 2010 Jersey Devil Press Anthology is without a doubt the single greatest collection of stories written by multiple authors released by Jersey Devil Press this summer. It's a veritable bacchanal of genre-straddling, clown-fearing, taco-hunting, world-ending prose! Did I mention monkeys? 'Cause there's monkeys, too. Everyone loves monkeys. You'd be a fool not to pick up a copy today!
Eirik Gumeny is the [insert superlatives here] author of BEGGARS WOULD RIDE and the cult-favorite EXPONENTIAL APOCALYPSE series. He's written for Cracked, WIRED, Nerdist, SYFY, a couple of medical textbooks and even the New York Times once.
Born with cystic fibrosis, Eirik still has cystic fibrosis, because that's how genetic diseases work. In 2014, he received a double lung transplant and technically died a little. He got better.
Forged in the suburban sprawl of northeastern New Jersey, Eirik currently lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he regularly has to fight giant atomic ants with a flamethrower. Follow him on Twitter or subscribe to his newsletter for updates.
This book is one of my fucking favorites, and not just because it contains one of my short stories, but also because it's a great book for squishing the flies in my kitchen. It's sleek, red design hides most gore left on its cover, and at 200 pages, it can crush the heartiest of bugs. Plus the stories aren't bad, either. I suggest you pick yourself up a copy, and then read it, and then give it to someone you love and force them to read it too.
