More Than a Monster has been UNLEASHED!

Grendel Press is pleased to present our third anthology, More Than a Monster: an expedition into the uncharted realms of the human experience. It's a reminder that definitions are malleable, and that the line between light and darkness, virtue and vice, can blur in ways that both mesmerize and unsettle.

Let these 16 spellbinding stories take you on a journey that blurs the line between human and monster. This anthology has been carefully curated to weave a tapestry of emotions that reflect the very essence of what it means to be alive.

But do you know what it means to be More Than a Monster?

You can keep track of anthology updates on our Anthology News page!

    Sometimes death isn’t the end- It’s just the beginning of a nightmare.

    Perhaps he may not be the only one who has been glitched. With every passing moment the stakes get higher, and the pull of the abyss grows stronger.

Glitch is a terrifying journey into the unknown, what happens when the return from death goes horrifically wrong.

    Unknowing, I Sink (Novella) $2.99
    Rated 0 out of 5

    Fans of Aickman and Ligotti are sure to enjoy this strange and unsettling novella from Timothy G. Huguenin. Sink into what award-winning author Nick Roberts (The Exorcist’s House) calls “a gelatinous pit of abject horror”—and see if you can pull yourself out.

    Julian finds a summer job cleaning a mansion belonging to Mr V, an eccentric recluse obsessed with arcane knowledge. The man’s grotesque, swollen appearance, caused by an unknown condition that keeps him bedridden, initially disturbs Julian. And those creepy terra cotta statues lurking in the shadows don’t help to ease his nerves. But the rich old man wants to pay him more than he ever imagined…

    While Julian struggles to understand his new employer’s discursive monologues, a dreadful ache grows inside his chest. Where has this feeling come from? How is it that a statue’s blank stare can cloud his mind? And what bizarre and horrifying secrets will he discover when Mr V’s esoteric philosophies become manifest?

    Ruxson is a stable hand capable of a great many things – with the exception of riding horses. Circumstances have set him on a long road to revenge. Will he be able to maintain his humanity – or fall to madness in his quest?

    Auric Redbeard is finally free from his long servitude to The Covenant. At long last, he has earned his place as a citizen. But nothing is ever easy for a dwarf, he soon finds himself swept up in the politics of a people that hate him for what and who he is.

    Sophia Skyfire wanted nothing more than to bring honor to The Covenant. Now, she serves with pride in the great Mystos Order. With the discovery of great proportions, Sophia begins to question the nation that she once served so proudly.

    Strangers in the High City is a tale of battles long-fought with politics and magical blades, of boundaries being drawn in the sand and young hopefuls fighting to test their meddle in the world where consequences rarely give second chances, and each step brings the humans, dwarves, and elves towards the brink of war yet again…
