Christine Morgan is my Woman In Horror today! Christine writes about, zombies, games involving adult sexual situations, body modifications gone wrong, Bigfoot, spiders, gnomes, dragons, elves, dwarfs, alchemy, and more. In other words, try to find something she doesn't write about. Not an easy task.

If you go to her Goodreads page ,    you will also see she has excellent taste in authors. Brian Keene is her favorite author. Brian is indeed a fantastic author. Good taste, Christine!

Amazon bio:

"Christine Morgan divides her writing time among many genres, from horror to historical, from superheroes to smut, anything in between and combinations thereof. She's a future crazy-cat-lady and a longtime gamer, who enjoys British television, cheesy action/disaster movies, cooking and crafts.

Her short stories have appeared in dozens of anthologies. Her most recent novels include Murder Girls, His Blood, and the Horned Ones: Cornucopia. She'll have a collection of bloodthirsty Viking tales coming out in 2017.

She also edits (her current ongoing project being the Fossil Lake Anthology series), is a regular contributor to The Horror Fiction Review, and recently relocated to Portland where she's delighted to be involved with the horror and bizarro writer scene."

Time to highlight some of Christine's books.

 Ziippered Flesh 2: More Tales of Body Enhancements Gone Bad

Book Description

February 6, 2013
So, you loved the first ZIPPERED FLESH anthology? Well, here are yet more tales of body enhancements that have gone horribly wrong! Steroids from Hell. Horrendous piercings. Bizarre brain modifications. Obscene amputations. Facial reconstruction. Self-mutilation. Implants. Chilling tales by some of the best horror and suspense writers today, determined to keep you fearful all night (and skittish during the day).

5.0 out of 5 stars Gruesome and bizarre...but excellent! June 2, 2013
I recently had the pleasure of reading several unique anthologies that have been published by presses new to me. One of these presses is Smart Rhino Publications, a small publishing firm based in Delaware. Although they are small, they have some excellent titles. One of these is ZIPPERED FLESH 2: MORE TALES OF BODY ENHANCEMENTS GONE BAD! This collection of stories almost defies normal classification; within these tales are horrors and wonders that you must read to believe. In short, this is one hell of an anthology!

This is definitely not a collection for the faint of heart! But the talent in this book is very impressive. I have to admit that I have never heard of many of these authors, but I definitely want to check out more of their work. Each author brings a unique perspective to the subject matter, making this collection a must-have for fans of horror and bizarre tales.

And `unique' is an excellent way to describe this book. The stories in ZIPPERED FLESH 2 are not traditional by any means; these are true tales of the original. From piercings to amputations, these stories will definitely stick out in your mind long after you have finished them.

One of my favorite stories in the book is "The Sun-snake" by Christine Morgan. In this tale, an ancient civilization "honors" the winner of a competition by transforming him into the Sun-snake, their embodied god. This is achieved by several gruesome surgeries that bind his legs together. I particularly like this story because of the vivid imagery involved. Morgan does an amazing job of conveying the scene and the images from this one will haunt me for a long time.

ZIPPERED FLESH 2 is a big win for me and is a book that definitely needs to be on your horror bookshelf. It is available now, so give it a look.

As you can see, the first reviewer was rather taken in by Christine's great story The Sun-Snake. This is certainly an extreme horror tale.

Changling Moon

 For thousands of years, they have lived among us. Their abilities have given rise to our oldest legends and our deepest fears. They are changelings. Shape-shifters. Hunters. Creatures of the night. Ruled by the moon, and by their own savage hungers. Some wish only to survive unnoticed in our world, to be left alone and have as little to do with us as possible. They keep to their laws and traditions. They keep to themselves. Their first and only loyalty is to the pack. But there are those who are outcasts from their own kind. Outcasts, like the beautiful and ruthless Simone Drachen and her perversely devoted son. They have broken the ancient laws, tasted of the forbidden, and gained greater power from it. To them, humans are not something to be avoided and tolerated. To them, we are prey. And now they have come to Trinity Bay, where one troubled young woman will be caught in the midst of their deadly conflict. Aiden Ferguson has lost everyone she ever cared about. Orphaned, alone, reclusive and shy, she leads a quiet existence in her little house on the beach, until a chance meeting with a handsome stranger begins to draw her out of her shell. An unexpected friendship with a flamboyant actress draws her out even more. For the first time in years, Aiden is learning to love life again . . . just as her life, her soul and her very humanity are threatened by the cold white light of the . . . Changeling Moon

If ever anyone could write a better blurb for a story, I haven't seen it. Yes, I love stories about shifters, but there is a special added incentive in the teasing , come hither and read approach with this story.

Christine writes so many things so well and combines sub-genres magnificently. Read her stories and see for yourself.

Christine Morgan is a Woman In Horror!
