To Wallow in Ash and Other Sorrows by Sam Richard

Written in the early days of widowhood and in the spirit of J.G. Ballard, Kathe Koja, and Georges Bataille, these stories are a cross-section of literary splatterpunk, transgressive fiction, and weird horror, which explore loss, grief, and the alluring comforts found within the heart of oblivion. From a place of raw emotion, Sam has described himself in author bios as “widowed in 2017, he slowly rots in Minneapolis with his dog, Nero.”

This Revised & Expanded version includes the never-before-seen novelette There is Power in the Blood.

With To Wallow in Ash and Other Sorrows, Sam Richard has crafted a book of stories that will rip your heart right out of your chest… and it’s absoltuely worth every moment.

– Gwendolyn Kiste, author of The Rust Maidens
