A simple bank robbery goes wrong when a wanna-be hero pushes the panic button, alerting police to the perfect situation in which to test a new method of assaulting the senses.
The debut anthology from The Dread Machine, featuring my short story “Jaws”.
The Hellbound Heart opens on Frank Cotton, a hedonist obsessed with reaching new heights of pleasure. During a ritual to summon the Cenobites, Frank finds himself caught in a real monkey’s paw situation where creatures from another plane serve him more than he ordered. To recover from the consequences of his ritual, he must rely on his sister-in-law Julia to collect the meat he needs to reclaim his mortal body.
A love story for the ages.
