Chuck Palahniuk Co-Edits 'Burnt Tongues' Literary Anthology
Palahniuk, known to push boundaries with his own fiction, has edited the anthology with co-editors Dennis Widmyer and Richard Thomas. The book, clocking in at 400 pages, is sure to be full of the kind of exciting and dangerous stories fans of Palahniuk have come to love.
The book's publisher, Medallion Books, has this to say about the upcoming collection:
Transgressive fiction authors write stories some are afraid to tell. Stories with taboo subjects, unique voices, shocking images—nothing safe or dry.
Burnt Tongues is a collection of transgressive stories selected by a rigorous nomination and vetting process and hand-selected by Chuck Palahniuk, author of Fight Club, as the best of The Cult workshop.
These stories run the gamut from horrific and fantastic to humorous and touching, but each leaves a lasting impression.
Some may say even a scar.
The book's release date is set for August.
