Exclusive Announcement: Barbie Wilde’s Short Story Collection, “VOICES OF THE DAMNED”


Loyal FANGORIA readers are likely familiar with the words and wisdom of Barbie Wilde, the one-time Cenobite who now commands her legion of fans via her petrifying published works. And aside from the occasional contribution to FANGORIA and GOREZONE- fictional or otherwise- Wilde’s novel THE VENUS COMPLEX has gone on to become a riveting, wicked read in its own right. Now, FANGORIA is proud to unleash Wilde’s next visceral venture on the page as we have the exclusive announcement and details of Wilde’s latest literary endeavor, VOICES OF THE DAMNED!

Featuring a foreword from FANGORIA’s own Chris Alexander and an afterword by the Soska Sisters, here’s the official synopsis for Barbie Wilde’s VOICES OF THE DAMNED…

Enter into the mind of Barbie Wilde, whose disturbing interior world teems with the voices of rebellious female demons, devilish witches, semen-hungry neo-vampires, raging gods and home invaders, the fiends of sleep paralysis, pint-sized store-front preachers with a whiff of sulfur, body horrors of the most grotesque kind, clandestine aliens and Zulu zombies.

These truly are the VOICES OF THE DAMNED: eleven short horror stories from Barbie Wilde, actress (HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II) and dark crime-horror novelist (THE VENUS COMPLEX). Fangoria has called Wilde “one of the finest purveyors of erotically charged horror around.”

Each story is accompanied by seductive, haunting, full color artworks and illustrations created by some of the most imaginative artists in the genre: Clive Barker, Nick Percival, Steve McGinnis, Daniele Serra, Eric Gross, Tara Bush, Vincent Sammy, & Ben Baldwin.


With a cover painted by Wilde cohort Clive Barker (which you can see above), VOICES OF THE DAMNED hits bookstores on October 31st from Short, Scary Tales Publications, but fright fans can pre-order the novel today at the book’s official presale page HERE. Keep an eye out for more from VOICES OF THE DAMNED and the wonderfully warped Barbie Wilde later this year at FANGORIA.com!
