New “Mother” Anthology Kickstarter Slated to End Mother’s Day 2022

March 8, 2022

Weird Little Worlds Press is pleased to announce it’s newest project, MOTHER: TALES OF LOVE AND TERROR, which will launch on Kickstarter April 8th, 2022. The new horror, dark fantasy, and science fiction anthology will include horror short stories from some today’s most accomplished horror writers alongside exciting new voices including Gemma Files, S.P. Miskowski, Shane Hawk, John Langan, Donyae Coles, Sarah Read, Steve Rasnic Tem, Christina Sng, Mercedes M. Yardley, and many others.

In these stories, mothers become heroes and villains and the concept of motherhood is examined and stretched to its ultimate limits across time, space, gender, location, and ideology. But in each, the reader will be forced to examine the depth and breadth of what motherhood is and what a mother will do for her offspring.

The anthology will be edited by Willow Dawn Becker and Christi Nogle for Weird Little Worlds Press, which published 2021’s Humans Are the Problem: a Monster’s Anthology and was included in the Horror Writer’s Association’s long list of recommended reading for the 2021 Bram Stoker Awards.

“Mothers have such a powerful influence for good and evil, I think this is a huge playground for our authors,” says co-editor and WLW Press CEO, Willow Becker. “We are expecting this to be a departure for our press, in that we are really looking for scary stories of a more literary nature.”

MOTHER: TALES OF LOVE AND TERROR will feature incredible talent including Gemma Files, John Langan, Sarah Read, and many more. The project will be funded on Kickstarter starting April 8th and concluding on Mother’s Day, May 8th at 12:00am.
