MMP Celebrates Women in Horror Month: Sumiko Saulson
Sumiko Saulson's otherworld grittiness and real world horror fiction cuts deep into the reader and bleeds them out in slow, steady storytelling that won't clot or crumble.
"As a disabled woman of color, I find often, the themes commonly found in horror resonate deeply with me. Horror fiction tells the stories of ordinary people facing extraordinary circumstances, tales striving, perseverance, and bravery in the face of difficulty. " -Sumiko Saulson
Read Sumiko's work in Death's Cafe: Ashes and Coffee, available from Mocha Memoirs Press.
Blurb: Death is stalking Berkeley, California in a sleek new jacket and snazzy checkered fedora. Insects and animals collapse in his wake. When the indigent begin to mysteriously die in the streets, the rest of the town is indifferent. Red Montgomery, a nineteen year old black homeless woman, is the only one who can see him. She feels powerless to intervene. But is she?
