Road Kill: Texas Horror by Texas Writers
E. R. Bills joins us with his new anthology of horror fiction from Texas writers.
Author E. R. Bills has assembled an anthology of horror stories from Texas writers, all threading through the twisting freeways and dark back roads that wind through the Lone Star State. From creepy, to ghostly, to other-worldly, the collection covers a wide sampling of the genre: An ancient demon plays cowboy and takes on the Texas Rangers. Three teenage girls sneak into a “body farm.” An aging African American couple defies the Grim Reaper. An FBI agent discovers an entire city that’s gone to the “dogs.” A handyman learns that the fixer-upper he’s working on has a doorway to the past that’s way out of square. And a pack of possums burrow into the body politic. Seventeen Texas authors in all, including works from Joe R. Lansdale, David Bowles, Anna L. Davis, Stephen Patrick, Carmen Gray, Russell C. Connor, Michael H. Price, Tom Bont, Ernie Lee, David Robledo, Alan Beauvais, Michael Baldwin, Glen Coburn, Joe McKinney, Tom Alexander, Bret McCormick and E. R. Bills who also edited the collection.
E. R. Bills is an author, screenwriter and free-lance journalist from Aledo, TX. He is the author of Texas Obscurities: Stories of the Peculiar, Exceptional and Nefarious, and The 1910 Slocum Massacre: An Act of Genocide in East Texas.
