The story behind LAZERMALL is this. One day, I got an email from Sam Richard asking if I wanted to put out a book featuring only horror stories that included lasers, malls, and robots.

It was the fastest “yes” I ever gave anybody.

For anything.


(Cover Text)
Just when you thought it was safe to go to the mall…
Three authors (Katy Michelle Quinn, Jo Quenell, Sam Richard) of the strange, the unsettling, and the bizarre each conjure their own vision of lazer-infused mall-horror. From queer mall-goths fighting for their lives against androids with explosive genitals, to the American propaganda machine using coerced shock-rocker punk musicians to fight Soviet Communism, to a mall security officer high on the power of robots who seeks to crush the women who’ve scorned him.
We have it all, and more…
Welcome to the LAZERMALL.

Three novellettes by three different horror authors, each one implored to contain two very specific things: LAZERS and MALLS. The variety between these three stories was great, as each author took the concept and made it their own. And while the book might be labelled as ‘horror’ there are healthy doses of weirdness and humor running through the veins of each of these tales. A short read (seriously, it only took me like 2 hours to read the whole thing) but a helluva good time.
