About the Book
Something has fallen away. We have lost something of ourselves, our history, what we once were. That something, if we are to face it, look it squarely in the eyes, terrifies us, makes us wretched. This is the horror of the abject.
The latest instalment of Comma Press’ award-winning modern horror series – which includes the Phobic and New Uncanny anthologies – The New Abject asks leading authors to produce new stories that respond to that a psychological concept of horror: Julia Kristeva’s theory of the abject.
The abject covers bodily functions that are deemed impure or inappropriate, and aspects of the body that transgress and threaten our sense of propriety. The result: unforgettable stories that will cause unease and discomfort in-keeping with the traditions of great horror literature and film.
The New Abject is available to pre-order now from Comma Press and all good retailers.
