Painted Monsters and Other Strange Beasts

Orrin Grey et al.

ORRIN GREY LOVES MONSTERS. That is abundantly clear in the stories he spins. No matter where he draws inspiration from, whether the weird tales of Lovecraft, Machen, and Poe or the films of Murnau, Corman, and Argento, the end result is inevitably fresh and new. And wonderfully monstrous.

If you love monsters–the macabre, the murderous, the misunderstood; the strange, the sinister, the sympathetic; the cinematic and the literary–you will find plenty to love in Orrin Grey’s Painted Monsters & Other Strange Beasts.
