SLJCoverI haven’t posted one of these in awhile. My victim, er, subject this time is Sarah L. Johnson. I first came across Sarah’s work in the Bram Stoker nominated anthology, DARK VISIONS Volume One, from Grey Matter Press. Her story, ‘Three Minutes’, blew me away and prompted me to search out other work by her. In addition to that story, she’s had work published in Shock Totem Magazine, Crossed Genres Magazine, and a whole bunch of other publications. Her first novel, Infractus, will be published in late 2015 by Driven Press.

Her most recent publication is a collection of stories from EMP Publishing called SUICIDE STITCH. Here’s the synopsis:

Love is woven into the fabric of our lives. A force of nature that knits us together even as it tears us apart. Threads of hunger, passion, and pain run through this collection where the last Nephilim fights his gory cravings, a latchkey kid befriends a cage dancer, and a bizarre threat lurks in the shadows of a friendly neighborhood. Siblings turn monstrous and gods are brought to their knees in a dark literary patchwork that will drive you into the knot of your lover’s arms, knowing how easily you could unravel.

Suicide Stitch is sexy, transgressive, and intelligent; comprised of eleven tales that explore the sinister side of love.

For a sample of Sarah’s outstanding work, check this out: Loud as a Murder. Read that story and you’ll see good reason why you should be reading Sarah L. Johnson.
