New Release: Cut to Care: A Collection of Little Hurts by Aaron Dries

IFWG Publishing is pleased to announce the Australian imprint’s release of Aaron Dries new collection of fiction, Cut to Care: A Collection of Little Hurts.

“This title represents Dries’ writing skills magnificently,” said Gerry Huntman, MD of IFWG. “We were impressed with his mix of supernatural and body horror from the moment we read his manuscript, as well as the infusion of his personal life experiences – acquiring his collection was an eminently logical step, and releasing it in Australia and internationally is the culmination of a pleasurable and satisfying process. We strongly believe that the horror reading public, and well beyond, will appreciate the work of art that is Cut to Care.”

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.

Cut to Care: A Collection of Little Hurts is available now in ebook and print formats from all quality online and bricks and mortar stores in Australia, UK, Europe and New Zealand. It will be released in ebook and print formats in the USA and Canada on 27 June 2022.
