We gave a copy of Black Candies: Gross and Unlikeable to Lindsay Hunter, the author of the devastating novel Ugly Girls, as well as the short story collections Daddy’s and Don’t Kiss Me. Here’s what she had to say about our book:
Gross and Unlikeable made me feel the way I felt as a kid reading scary stories with a flashlight in the dark. These tales hit at something primitive and true, something beyond fear. Then and now, I felt almost giddy as I read, the way one might when the footsteps are getting closer and the only thing left to do is scream.
author of Ugly Girls.
Black Candies is our annual print collection of short stories. Black Candies: Gross and Unlikeable is a special women-only issue, featuring stories and art by all-women contributors. It hits the shelves on Black Friday, 11/25/16. That’s right: this week.
