Tachyon Publications has announced the upcoming publication of the trade paperback anthology, Crucified Dreams – Tales of Urban Horror, edited by Joe R. Lansdale. The book is scheduled for a February or March 2011 release.

Description: Descend into the madness that prowls beneath the veneer of civilization. These nineteen classic tales of terror deform ordinary dreams into bleak, unrelenting nightmares, where the innocent are caught between good and evil, and evil finds itself merely mundane when faced with its elder, more brutal ancestors.

No one is safe in Crucified Dreams, a psychologically intricate anthology that reveals the darkest fears and lays them bare. Weaving together noir, horror, the paranormal, and dark fantasy, these are stylish, savage tales of private dicks and femme fatales, serial killers and lurking demons by a star-studded roster of authors, including the infamous editor.
