Cover reveal for my new collection THE GARDEN OF DELIGHT coming March 3, 2016 from Comet Press. Cover Art by Saber Core.
Synopsis: From Bram Stoker Award winner Alessandro Manzetti, one of Italy s most visionary minds, comes 20 of his most horrifying short stories in one unsettling collection with tales from the past, future and present: An apocalyptic and bloody Rome is dominated by the first She-Pope who organizes shocking exhibitions in the new Coliseum; the bloody and cannibalistic Jerusalem during the First Crusade is overrun with gangs of rapists, criminals, and anthropophagy addicts; the future ultra-violent district Paris Sud 5 goes full dark with the rot of human corruption and a human landfill; Spanish invaders are sacrified through unthinkable and brutal rites by blood-frenzied Aztecs, and many more. In this Garden of Delight, you'll discover forbidden fruits, adrenaline and sin, and experience the taste of human flesh . . . the Holy Graal of pleasure.
Available for preorder at Amazon, printed and kindle edition.
