New Acquisition: Cut To Care: A Collection of Little Hurts by Aaron Dries

IFWG is very pleased to announce the acquisition of publishing rights to Aaron Dries’ short fiction collection, Cut To Care: A Collection of Little Hurts.

An agency that sends social workers into the homes of grieving families to impersonate dead loved ones…

The kind old woman who saved a teenager’s life but now finds herself haunted by the weight of a cheated suicide…

And the daughter of a candlestick maker as she tries to survive a painful existence after her father’s execution for making human chandeliers of drunken cowboys…

These stories and more—ranging from supernatural to the frighteningly domestic, Splatterpunk to the weird and cosmic—stain the pages of CUT TO CARE: A COLLECTION OF LITTLE HURTS by Aaron Dries. They serve as a timely reminder of the cost of caring too much. Or not caring enough. Of how we mask cruelties behind kindness. And of our willingness to rip ourselves apart in the hope of satisfying a world that doesn’t always care for you back. 

Featuring an exclusive introduction by Mick Garris, creator of MASTERS OF HORROR and director of Stephen King’s THE STAND, this unforgettable collection truly cuts deep.

By day, Australian author, artist, and award-winning filmmaker Aaron Dries works within the mental health and homelessness field. By night, he “helps lead a new generation of Splatterpunk for a new dark age” (Brian Keene, author of The Rising). His novels include House of Sighs, its sequel The Sound of His Bones BreakingWhere the Dead Go to Die (with Mark Allan Gunnells), A Place for Sinners, and The Fallen Boys. His short fiction and art have been published in numerous anthologies and magazines domestically and abroad. For more information visit aarondries.com or drop him a line on Twitter @AaronDries
