A prematurely aging girl learns to fly during the end of the world. A husband makes the ultimate sacrifice for his dying wife. Two brothers endure a rainstorm that lasts five years. A father tries to save his daughter from a sleeping epidemic. A man books into a hotel where the guests check in but never check out. A group of fine-dining cannibals worry where their next meal will come from. And a grieving mother goes in search of ghosts in a haunted house.
Human Tenderloin is a collection of horror stories with heart. Some will goose the skin. Others will leave you bloated with terror. But each one will stay with you.
“These stories don’t just leave you moving through the world differently, they leave you moving through your own head differently. And don’t look behind yourself, either. There may just be bloody footprints.” – Stephen Graham Jones, author of My Heart is a Chainsaw
“Human Tenderloin features a wide range of stories from old school in-your-face horror to quiet dread-fueled chamber pieces. Through it all Wallwork infuses a uniquely absurd, macabre sense of humor as well as a sense of the humane. Bon appetite.” – Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and Survivor Song
