                                                                   "HOT BLOOD 13 continues the tradition set by its predecessors in the series of providing
                                                                    new stories combining horror and erotica --- occasionally tongue-in-cheek (among other

                                                                    places) --- while maintaining the strict standard of quality which has made HOT BLOOD
                                                                    an outstanding anthology of original fiction well into its second decade."
                                                                                                                                                                       -- Joseph Hartlaub


Hot Blood, the internationally-famous erotic horror anthology, will see its thirteenth edition in bookstores this Halloween season.

Hot Blood co-editor Jeff Gelb commented, “In 1989, when the first volume of Hot Blood was published, little did we think we would make it to a thirteenth volume. It’s a dream come true–an erotic dream, that is!”

Literally hundreds of writers have shared the Hot Blood spotlight since that first volume, from Joyce Carol Oates to Edward Lee, from Jack Ketchum to Lawrence Block, Richard Matheson to Nancy Holder.

“One of the keys to the ongoing success of the Hot Blood books,” remarked co-editor Michael Garrett, “is the breadth of writers who have wanted to share an erotic horror tale with readers. They find Hot Blood a unique stage for their ideas and have enjoyed the opportunity to reach out to fans–old and new–with a story they couldn’t really find a more appropriate home for than we provide.

“One of the most satisfying aspects of doing the Hot Blood series has been giving new writers the opportunity to share the spotlight with their lifelong heroes. We’re proud to say we’ve jumpstarted several writing careers with Hot Blood stories.”

Gelb added, “You’d think there are only so many ways to spin a horror story in an erotic direction. But just when we think we’ve read every erotic concept under the sun, along comes our next submission with a crazy, sexy idea we’ve never thought of.”

Dark Passions: Hot Blood Volume XIII showcases twenty all new stories by some of the genre’s greats, including Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, Steve Niles, David J. Schow, Thomas Tessier, Ed Gorman and Graham Masterton.

Hot Blood has won the prestigious Bram Stoker award for best short story, seen in print in over a dozen foreign countries and has been optioned for a TV series. Its stories have also been used for the Showtime TV series “The Hunger” and “Masters of Horror.”

Garrett said, “Reflecting the public’s fascination with sex and violence are blockbuster films like ‘Fatal Attraction’, ‘Basic Instinct’, and more recently, ‘Unfaithful’ and even ‘Hostel.’ The Hot Blood series offers a print alternative to fans of such theatrical thrillers, courtesy of some of the very best writers on this planet (or any other).”
