Comedians from Toronto’s fabled Laugh Sabbath troupe read their hoegrown erotica. With sexy – or hilarious – results.
Author Gemma Files shares a deliciously depraved selection of her work. Former film critic and teacher turned award-winning horror author Gemma Files is probably best-known for her Weird Western Hexslinger series (A Book of Tongues, A Rope of Thorns and A Tree of Bones, all from ChiZine Publications). She has also published two collections of short fiction and two chapbooks of poetry. In August, her next book from CZP will be released: We Will All Go Down Together: Stories About the Five-Family Coven.
