Kickstarters and Gofundme!

Project image for That Which Cannot Be Undone: An Ohio Horror AnthologyDid you think Maine has a monopoly on horror? Or that college football holds Ohio’s sole claim to fame?

Truth be told, a multitude of well-known, award-winning authors of horror populate the Buckeye state. Earlier this year, Cracked Skull Press, an assembly of four Ohio-based horror writers, formed with a single goal: to create an anthology of terrifying tales featuring our strange state.

With your support, we seek to raise awareness of our local talent.

That Which Cannot Be Undone: An Ohio Horror Anthology will be published through Cracked Skull Press and is slated to be released in October of 2022.

Our featured authors contributing stories to the anthology include Bram Stoker Award-winning Gary Braunbeck, Lucy Snyder, and Tim Waggoner, and New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Megan Hart. We have also enlisted the editorial skills of Bram Stoker Award-winning Jess Landry.

These are just a few of the wicked weavers of words writing stories for the anthology. Once we reach our fundraising goals, we will invite many more Ohio-based authors.

All the funds raised will help pay the writers, artist and the creation of Hybrids: Misfits, Monsters, and other Phenomena. Artwork from Luke Spooner.

Hybrid Sequence Media is proud to present new stories and poetry from: Jonathan Maberry, Lee Murray, Angela Yuriko Smith, Lucy Snyder, Michael Bailey, Dacre Stoker, Michael Knost, Marge Simon, Bruce Boston, Gene Flynn, Alicia Hilton, Alessandro Manzetti, Romie Stott,  Tim Waggoner, D. Harlan Wilson, Cindy O’Quinn, Jamal Hodge, John Palisano, Gabino Iglesias, Philip Fracassi, SL Edwards, John Claude Smith, Jeffrey Thomas, Nicole Givens Kurtz, and Linda D. Addison. With an Introduction by Doug Murano.

Happy reading.
