    Many times, transness in horror lit hasn’t fulfilled me. Cis creators drop the ball whether curating or publishing. When I saw this anthology written and edited by fellow nonbinary people I knew I had to at least get the pdf– and I wasn’t disappointed! My personal fave story is “Mama is a Butcher” by Winter Holmes– it really spoke to me and was a gut churning but heartfelt read. I need more trans-created horror as good as this Asap!

    WARNING: This anthology contains some depictions and discussions of sexual violence and r//pe!!

    Bound in Flesh is a phenomenal horror anthology, one I’ve enjoyed thoroughly practically every entry in. If you’re a queen horrorhead like me, it’s definitely for you.

    However, I would have appreciated a trigger list or warning somewhere in the early book pages, or on the sale page. A particular story in the anthology blindsided me with its sudden and stark portrayal, brief as it was, of sexual violence. I knew afterwards that I could expect such topics potentially going forward, but a warning still would have been appreciated.

    The book is wonderful, if you have the stomach for such things! A must read, even. Thank you to the creators who put this out there!
