Subterranean Press is gearing up for the May release of Bentley Little’s short story collection, Indignities of the Flesh.

Limited: 500 signed numbered copies, bound in leather, with an exclusive story
Trade: Fully cloth bound hardcover edition

Description: Bentley Little has forged a name for himself as one of the most startlingly original authors in contemporary horror. His subversion of genre tropes and talent for creating surreal, Boschian-like nightmares from the mundane is without parallel.

Herein you’ll meet: the mischievous “Rodeo Clown,” who may very well be evil incarnate, or perhaps little more than an innocent bystander in a ring of coincidence; a man obsessed with dental hygiene to the point of stalking, in “Brushing;” a cynic forced to tag along on an ill-advised trip to a faith healer in “Documented Miracles;” a demented birthday girl whose equally demented birthday wishes are about to come true, in “Happy Birthday, Dear Tama;” a family on the run from cartoonists in search of their god, in “Looney Tunes;” and a man who pays the ultimate price for circumventing a parking attendant in the never before published, “Valet Parking.”

Rounding out the collection are “The Black Ladies” and “The Piñata,” a pair of unsettling stories culled from childhood nightmares, the surprisingly poignant “Even the Dead,” which documents the last days of a tender partnership between two friends, only one of whom is still alive, and “Pray 4 Baby,” Little’s first published story, unavailable for nearly 30 years, the distinctly E.C. Comics-flavored cautionary tale about highway curiosity gone horribly wrong, published exclusively in the Signed, Limited Edition.

Indignities of the Flesh is a superlative gathering of the kind of twisted, darkly humorous, and mind-bending stories for which Bentley Little is best known.
