|With a surgeon's skill,
editor Kevin L. Donihe stitches a diverse
collection of fiction and poetry together
to bring Bare Bone to life. Another
Dr. Frankenstein, he assembles the pieces
of others, birthing one complete monster to
send lurching towards the darkness.
Stories from past issues
have received Honorable Mentions in The
Year's Best Fantasy and Horror #15 and #17
and another was reprinted in The Mammoth
Book of Best New Horror #13. Bare Bone
is now a bi-annual anthology.
#6 continues the spine-tingling
tradition of the series featuring the fiction
and poetry of today's most exciting authors.
From the twisted poetry of Michael Arnzen
to the surreal and haunting stories of Darren
Speegle and Jeffrey Stadt this issue packs
an hallucinatory punch.

What people are saying
about Bare Bone #6:
"Bare Bone #6 continues its incredible legacy as one of the best Horror anthologies around with the 6th edition featuring 18 new stories and 11 poems. Sometimes visceral and sometimes subtle, Bare Bone always has something for the horror fan no matter how you like it served."
"The orgasmic quality of pacing, the allure of the large cast of characters, and the vivid atmosphere created in these selections are more powerful than sex and much more satisfying. Gathering a congregation of both new and old writers, Donihe deals out perfection. While each author varies in style as well voice, the impact of their words is felt, and the effect is transcendental."
"Kudos goes to Donihe
for his ability to spot talent and gather
them together into one crowd-pleasing ensemble.
Bells and whistles for another top-notch
endeavor by Raw Dog Screaming Press, a force
to be reckoned with. What's your excuse
for not holding a copy of Bare Bone #6 in YOUR sweaty hands?"
