Fracassi Bookplate

EARLY PRAISE FOR BEHOLD THE VOID:

“Every story is as unique in its subject matter as it is identical in its quality and excellence. Philip Fracassi is quickly building a reputation as a superior storyteller of incredible talent…. an author we must surely now hail as a leading light in the dark field of horror fiction.” — Thomas Joyce, This Is Horror

Behold the Void is a stunning collection… I anticipate seeing it mentioned in many year’s best lists to come.” — Anthony Watson, Dark Musings

“Philip Fracassi is a master craftsman of the dark tale… a rare talent, and this book is a marvel. We are lucky indeed to have both of them.”–Paul F. Olson, author of Whispered Echoes

“This is it–a collection of dark tales that will chill you to the bone… Fracassi’s BEHOLD THE VOID is the perfect read for horror fans who expect authors to raise the bar and redefine what horror fiction means.” — Ronald Malfi, author of The Night Parade

“Philip Fracassi is one of the most exciting new voices I’ve read… BEHOLD THE VOID should be on the shelf of every horror reader. It’s that good.Highly recommended.” — Ralph Robert Moore, author of You Can Never Spit It All Out

“When you open this collection, you’re headed down a dark alley within the precincts of the Twilight Zone. It’s the kind of place where the wrong people get hurt; hazard is everywhere and it doesn’t play favorites. The complacent won’t find refuge here on the threshold of the void. Nobody is safe and nothing is sacred. Enjoy the ride.” — from the introduction by Laird Barron

ABOUT FRAGILE DREAMS

FRAGILE DREAMS came from the idea: “What would it feel like to be trapped in the dark; essentially buried alive beneath a mountain of steel and chaos, and to know, without a doubt, that you were going to die? What would you think? What would you remember? At what point would your mind start slipping away?”

Then, “And what if there were things in the dark…”

…a tour-de-force of storytelling…“– Risingshadow.net

“…heart-stopping…heartbreaking…he never lets the suspense slacken, even as his narrative rockets to its harrowing conclusion.” — John Langan, author of The Fisherman

“…claustrophobic as hell.” — Jack Ketchum, author of The Secret Life of Souls

“…Disturbing, frightening, unnerving…nail biting pleasure.” — Mark Booth, author of The Secret History of the World

MORE PRAISE FOR MY WORK:

“ALTAR is redolent of hard-edged supernatural horror from the golden days of McCammon and King. Nobody is safe in a Fracassi story.” — Laird Barron, author of X’s for Eyes

“Fracassi’s work building the characters and their relationships pays off when the weird starts creeping in. Both an intense and satisfying reading experience.” — Jeffrey Ford, author of A Natural History of Hell

“…one of the most promising and talented new horror authors to emerge in recent years.” — Risingshadow.net

“Philip Fracassi’s ALTAR does to swimming pools what Peter Benchley’s JAWS did to oceans.” — Ralph Robert Moore, author of Ghosters

Fracassi has a new fan. I’m going to be reading more of his stuff. You should, too.” — Ray Garton, author of Live Girls and Vortex

2 bEastly paws (or 5 stars) WAY UP for Philip Fracassi’s _ALTAR_! !!” — Joe Pulver, author of The King in Yellow Tales 

“Smooth prose, excellent characterization, and just enough horror madness to let the story ring in your head long after you’ve read it.” — Ronald Malfi, author of The Night Parade

“The moment I finished, I wanted to flip back to page one and read it again, just to see how he did it.” — Paul F. Olson, author of Whispered Echoes

“Fracassi knows when to hold back and when to twist the knife.” –- Michael Wehunt, author of Greener Pastures

“Fracassi has the ability to inject dread into the familiar and everyday, ratcheting the tension to reach absolute horror. Profoundly disturbing.” — Christopher Slatsky, author of Alectryomancer

Altar cements Fracassi into the annals of weird and horror fiction with a well-written, tightly paced extravaganza that showcases his flair for solid characterization combined with cinematic, bloodcurdling terror.” — This Is Horror

Philip gets into the mind of a young boy better than I’ve seen anyone do since Stephen King’s IT, and it makes the story that much more terrifying…” — Shotgun Logic

“Philip Fracassi’s Mother manages to pay homage to classic turn of the 20th Century horror stories while simultaneously fitting right in with the modern weird/occult tale. A promising debut!” – Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts

“Mother occupies a modern Gothic niche, yet unfolds in a disorienting and timeless fashion. A touch of giallo and a whole dose of nastiness.” – Laird Barron, author of The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All

“If Mr. Fracassi writes another nine of these, I’m in the queue for his first collection!” – Adam Nevill, author of The Ritual and Lost Girl

“Mother is a story of domestic collapse at the fringe of the known world that recalls the thematic brutality of Nathan Ballingrud and Karl Edward Wagner. This one will sneak up on you.” – T.E. Grau, author of The Nameless Dark

“…this short read is full of palpable dread. The emotions rendered here are realistic and very human. There’s hopelessness and guilt, blame and regret all twisted in fibrous webbing to catch us up when we want to sprint quickly ahead of the story. The ending is a slap across the face.” – Ginger Nuts of Horror

“Philip has created characters we want to succeed and makes us feel their pain. Loaded with dark possibilities, I think you’ll be surprised at the outcome.” – Horror Novel Reviews

The last few pages of Mother scared the hell out of me…” – Muzzleland Press
