Steve Tem Bibliography  





“Steve Rasnic Tem is unmatched. This collection of horror stories is about life disintegrating, true loss, existentialism, death, and the after-life. Horror binds it all together and makes it monumentally remarkable.” – Horrorbound

Publishers Weekly starred review: ​“World Fantasy Award winner Tem is at his sharpest and most crushing in this collection … Essential for fans of dark speculative fiction.”

Steve’s new collection, THANATRAUMA, is now available in paperback, ebook, and audio formats from the usual online retailers. The limited hardcover is also available  for pre-order directly from the publisher. This is a collection of 21 strange and deeply unsettling tales — four of them previously unpublished — that deal with our deepest fears: death, loss, grieving, aging. The hardcover will be limited to 300 signed copies, beautifully printed and bound, and is available at a terrific preorder price of just $30. The wraparound dust jacket is by Vince Haig, who has done so many great covers for Undertow Publications. Starred review from Publishers Weekly: “World Fantasy Award winner Tem (The Night Doctor) is at his sharpest and most crushing in this collection of 21 horror shorts…essential for fans of dark speculative fiction, surrealist travelogues, and meditations on loss.” Order from Amazon here: Full details on the hardcover edition here:
