Beneath the New Moon

CollierLilith8x6Another piece of mine published by Courtney Morgan’s THE THOUGHT EROTIC, this one is an erotic fantasy-horror story called BENEATH THE NEW MOON, published in three parts. Just in case all those uses of the word “erotic” didn’t tip you off, this story contains many scenes of graphic sexual play. It was my first foray into explicit sex writing and I found it both challenging and rewarding. There’s also a scene set on (or more properly in) Jupiter’s moon Europa, so there ya go. Some of these settings and characters will return, but I think the piece stands on its own. If you are looking for some monstrous sexual shenanigans, I hope you’ll give it a try!

By Matthew Pridham

I write horror stories as well as film and book reviews. I've been published in Weird Tales Magazine,,, and My primary interests are modernist fiction, world domination, the horror genre (classic, avant-garde, modern), polyamory, and philosophy of every stripe. Favorite authors include (but are far from limited) to Marcel Proust, Ramsey Campbell, Martin Amis, Thomas Ligotti, Ruth Rendell, Vladimir Nabokov, Jorge Luis Borges, and Clive Barker. I grew up in Bergen, Norway as well as Albuquerque, New Mexico, and I've attended the University of New Mexico and CU Boulder.
