Funereal Diseases of the Mind: Fifteen Tales Of Dark Erotica, a collection of short fiction written by Dark Erotica Author Anthony Beal, blurs the lines between what is scary and what is sexy, while proving that although love may or may not make the world go ‘round, lust conquers all.
Meet Damien, a jaded young writer that finds himself compelled to purchase a pricey art photograph of a seductive nude woman rumored to be a dead occult priestess; one whose likeness he is convinced is as aware of him as he is of it. Join Alton and his neglected married acquaintance Thora; friends with “benefits,” they enjoy one another regularly – right up until Thora’s husband tracks her to Alton’s house and reveals himself to be far less inattentive than they’d imagined. Crawl inside the head of a woman that every man wants a piece of, whether he realizes it or not. Their frightening worlds and others await readers amid the pages of Funereal Diseases of the Mind: Fifteen Tales Of Dark Erotica, a collection of short fiction written by Dark Erotica Author Anthony Beal.
Where many readers consider themselves die-hard horror aficionados, others fancy themselves connoisseurs of written erotica. Crafted with a mind toward offering descriptive, stimulating narratives and unique, relatable characters to readers of erotica and horror alike, this collection promises to engage loyal supporters of both genres. Says Beal, “I think that lust and fear are two of humankind’s most primal emotions … they’re the ones that, if allowed to dominate our thoughts, will most often lead us to do foolish, self-destructive things. I like writing stories that weave elements of horror and eroticism together, to explore the effects of allowing two of our most powerful emotional states to run wild.”
Though aimed primarily at readers from age 21 to 44, its variety of stories and settings offer something to everyone that enjoys erotica and horror. These fifteen tales of dark erotica will bring readers face to face with gods and vampires, psychotics and witches, shapeshifters and demons. Their stories they will tell huddled in crumbling dive motels and moonlit lakeside cabins where life and death are equally fleeting. They will bring readers along on 2 a.m. pub crawls and sex club excursions that know their darkest sins.
