There is absolutely no question that Weird Fiction has great female writers. Case in point, SING ME YOUR SCARS by Damien Angelica Walters, available today.
I’m reading it now — Apex was kind enough to send me a review copy the other day — and I’m truly enjoying these tales. So much that I stopped reading the book to tell all of you about it! Be sure to pick it up — it’s available in print and for Kindle.
Laird Barron writes: “Sing Me Your Scars revolves in the mind’s eye in a kaleidoscope of darkness and wonder.”
“Sometimes a thread pulled through the flesh is all that holds you together. Sometimes the blade of a knife or the point of a nail is the only way you know you’re real. When pain becomes art and a quarter is buried deep within you, all you want is to be seen, to have value, to be loved. But love can be fragile, folded into an origami elephant while you disappear, carried on the musical notes that build a bridge, or woven into an illusion so real, so perfect that you can fool yourself for a little while. Paper crumples, bridges fall, and illusions come to an end. Then you must pick up the pieces, stitch yourself back together, and shed your fear, because that is when you find out what you are truly made of and lift your voice, that is when you Sing Me Your Scars.”
