Advance Praise

"It's no coincidence that there are four chambers to the human heart and Ronald Malfi's 'Ghostwritten', both bound by muscle and full of blood, but once this quartet of nightmarish novellas gets pumping, your own ticker is sure to stop." - Clay McLeod Chapman, author of 'Whisper Down the Lane'

Praise for Black Mouth:

"Stunningly good, with echoes of King, Bradbury, Straub, and McCammon, but somehow purely Malfi. Full of malevolence and dread, and peopled by truly compelling characters, the book locks in Malfi’s place as one of the best writers in the genre.” - Christopher Golden, 'New York Times' bestselling author of 'Road of Bones' and 'Ararat'

"'Black Mouth' is good magic about dark magic: a powerful meeting between adulthood and childhood, the people we pretend to be and the people we have to be. Smart, character-driven horror." - Andrew Pyper, author of 'The Residence' and 'The Demonologist'

"Malfi has established himself as one of the all-time great horror writers, and 'Black Mouth' shows him working at the peak of his dark powers. Equally terrifying and heartbreaking, 'Black Mouth' is a book filled with terror, ghosts, and murder, but also hauntings of the heart, and the soul. Riveting, bloody, and cosmic, this novel will tear you apart in all the best ways.” - Philip Fracassi, author of 'Beneath a Pale Sky'

"Malfi, like Stephen King and Stephen Graham Jones, tells horror stories that are anchored in the real world. His characters, like theirs, are ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events. He earns his screams and shudders honestly, through good writing and careful plotting: there are no B-movie jump scares here, just an increasing sense of dread that erupts into blood-chilling horror. Don't miss this one." -'Booklist'

“The well-done cosmic horror and mix of mundane and magical scares make this a standout.” - 'Publishers Weekly'

"Expertly crafted and thoroughly engrossing, Black Mouth is a sure-fire contender for the book of 2022." - Bloody Flicks

"It's no coincidence that there are four chambers to the human heart and Ronald Malfi's 'Ghostwritten', both bound by muscle and full of blood, but once this quartet of nightmarish novellas gets...
