Verotika, the flagship title, is an anthology of “erotic horror,” sure to thrill fans of Cry For Dawn. Brutally violent and rape-laden.

Satanika is written by the lead misfit of Verotik: Glenn Danzig. It is the continuing saga of the title character, a half-demon, half-heavily muscled woman.

The very thought of a weed-digger striking fear into the hearts of criminals seemed a little silly, but they pulled it off very well.

Songs of a Dead Dreamer – Review

June 1, 1994

Ligotti’s style should be savored, not devoured like literary fast-food. And I suggest reading one story at a time; they need to sink in, which they will do.

Bondage – Review

June 1, 1994

The concept is good. The execution falls flat. Bondage is not intended as an erotic novel. It is an attempt to use sex as a microcosm of human interaction.
