We are beyond excited to reveal our second spotlight writer: Mehitobel Wilson. Mehitobel has been writing horror for over a decade, with great critical success. The horror in her stories is immediate and visceral, showing no mercy. They make you think as well, often turning you on your head before releasing you from the tale. She is a short story writer at heart, wielding the short form like a scalpel.
Mehitobel, known to many as Bel, has been nominated for a Bram Stoker Award™. In addition, she received an Honorable Mention in the Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror five years in a row.
We are so thrilled to have Mehitobel on board, and we know you’re going to love her story!
Mehitobel Wilson has been publishing horror fiction since 1998. You may find her work in Psychos: Serial Killers, Depraved Madmen, and the Criminally Insane (Black Dog & Levinthal, 2012), Necro Files: Two Decades of Extreme Horror, Zombies: Encounters with the Hungry Dead, Sins of the Sirens, Damned: An Anthology of the Lost, and Dead But Dreaming.
Selected stories have been collected in Dangerous Red, which is now available in a range of ebook formats from various retailers. She contains most of the planet’s caffeine and salt. If you can’t pronounce her name, call her “Bel.”
Mehitobel’s collection of short horror fiction is available from Amazon or Necro Publications. Here are some comments folks have made about it:
“Caustic, classic, classy, nasty, elegant, relevant post-punk horror for people who give a shit.” –China Miéville, winner of the Arthur C. Clarke Award, the British Fantasy Award, and the Locus Award.
“DANGEROUS RED is purely and simply one of the five best horror collections I’ve ever read in my fuckin’ life.” –Ed Lee, author of City Infernal, Infernal Angel, The Bighead, and others.
“DANGEROUS RED is, quite simply, the best collection I’ve read this year. The stories are disturbing, visceral, and emotionally brutal. Wilson’s prose is filled with dark beauty, and it got to me on a very personal level. A pleasure to read. I urge you to try this!” –Brian Keene, author of City of the Dead, Terminal, and The Rising.
“Mehitobel Wilson is, in fact, the Real Deal, and reading her prose is like getting a red hot wire raked across your tenderest flesh. It’s that good…this collection is a must-read for people interested in literary horror.” –Fangoria Magazine.
