Lullabies for Suffering: Tales of Addiction Horror
Mark Matthews, editor (anthology)
Addiction starts like a sweet lullaby sung by a trusted loved one. It washes away the pains of the day and wraps you safely in the warmness of the womb. Nothing hurts and every dream is possible. Yet soon enough, this warm state of bliss becomes a cold shiver, the ecstasy and dreams become nightmares, yet we can’t stop listening to the lullaby for suffering. We crave to hear the siren song as it rips us apart. A powerful list of talent has woven tales featuring the insidious nature of addiction—damaged humans craving for wholeness, but finding something more horrific on the other side. You are invited to listen.

Advance Review Praise for Lullabies for Suffering

"If you've ever struggled with a friend's addiction or internal demons (or your own!) you have been to this particular corner of Hell. The stories in Lullabies for Suffering are the real deal, a plunge into agony and the ecstasy, the inescapable nightmare of addiction." 

~ALMA KATSU, author of The Deep and The Hunger


"Beautiful, enlightening, revelatory. Everything that good fiction should be, in a manner that elevates both its chosen genre and the status of discourse on its core subjects."
-Ginger Nuts of Horror
