Magenta Nero is my Woman In Horror today! Last year she had no books on Amazon . This year, as you can see below, that has changed. Her range of talent is superb. Go to the links above where you can see her poetry on  https://lapoesiadeimorti.wordpress.com/ and short stories and more on http://magentanero.wordpress.com/ .

I first met Magenta on Pen Of The Damned   http://penofthedamned.com/,
a rather eclectic bunch of authors spinning tales and poems of a Damned, Dark nature. She immediately found a home with us, even though we might not be the best of housemates. Her last story was Lalupa, http://penofthedamned.com/2015/01/13/lalupa/  and is superb. I suggest you read it and her other tales over there. All of them are free.

Magenta writes her tales inspired by the devilish, deviant, and deranged. Dark fantasy, Gothic horror, erotica, and griity realism all find their way into her stories. Her work was also included in Sirens Call ezine#13 and #15. Sirens Call is a superb ezine!

She was born in Italy and has lived and worked in London, Tokyo and Sydney. She currently lives in the Northern Rivers, Australia, with her partner and two young daughters.


One of Magenta's books is Sanitarium Magazine: Issue 23:

A little word from our readers:
One of the great things about Sanitarium Magazine is the effort they put into discovering new authors. Many horror magazines favor work of King or other "proven" authors, but by reaching out the the next generation, Sanitarium opens the door to really new ideas.” - DL SHANNON // DEVER, CO
Sanitarium is an excellent high quality horror magazine full of new, emerging writers and some old faces. All the stories are very good. However, my personal favourite by Lex Sinclair stands out as the best. It has elements of Edgar Allen Poe.” - SAM // LONDON, UK

Enter THE truly horrifying Sanitarium now...

Next is Bones III:

Book Description

October 22, 2014
There are bones of the dead everywhere, and they’re sharp. Under your feet as you walk across your yard, in the cement of buildings, under the foundation of your home, in the coffee you drink, in the food you eat. Science estimates 100 billion human beings have lived and died. There are bones everywhere. There are skeletons everywhere, from universities to unnamed places we really don’t want to know about. We love skeletons as we are walking skeletons. There’s an old phrase about skeletons in the closet. What if the skeleton in your closet is real? When we look at strangers, friends and family we fail to see the skull behind the face. And the eyes of skulls are dark and deep. These works of art, poetry and short stories cut deep. To the bone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good entry in the "Bones" series December 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Not sure why, but I've been enjoying this series. Most of the submissions are at least entertaining, with the my favorites being James Dorr's "Three Dance Poems", Essel Pratt's "Love Transcends Death", and Tonya Demarco's "Offspring".

Magenta shares the pages with other Women In Horror here. James Ward Kirk and I were talking today about how many Women In Horror are in his books. Gotta love that.

Floppy Shoes Apocalypse is another super anthology Magenta is in:
 

Book Description

November 5, 2014
Maybe Floppy Shoes Apocalypse editors Alex S. Johnson and John Ledger didn't invent clown horror, but as this new anthology demonstrates, they appear to have perfected it. Featuring a wide range of stories and poetry by such authors as Lisa Dabrowski, Dona Fox, Mary Genevieve Fortier and Stuart Keane, Floppy Shoes Apocalypse sheds new light on the dark side of the circus arts. A thoroughly entertaining read.--Jim Rose
 
4.0 out of 5 stars Clown horror at its finest December 23, 2014
Format:Paperback
Until recently, most clown horror fiction turned me off. KM Tepe's SLAUGHTERTOWN CIRCUS turned me around a bit, but it didn't convert me to the subgenre. I honestly didn't expect much from this anthology, but I came away from it thoroughly impressed. I think my favorite story is "No Laughing Matter" by Stuart Keane. It's one of the greatest revenge stories I've read in a while. A lot of the stories were lukewarm, but here are more of the great ones: "Nightmare Clowns" by Jeff O'Brien (which has a great ending), "They Died Laughing" by K.Z. Morano (which features sexually transmitted clownness) and "Under a Clown Moon" by Jim Goforth. Deserving of special attention, though, is Kent Hill's poem, "The Ballad of the Crying Clown." I like his work, but I'm not a big fan of poetry and clown fiction. A poem about clowns? I had my doubts. Thankfully, they were all dismissed quickly. It's a funny, fecal read, and you're not likely to forget it.

You have to read this great anthology to believe it. Let me just say it's great!

Cellar Door III:Animals and Hell II: Citizens is a double dose of horror:

A huge thank you to James Ward Kirk Fiction for featuring my poem "What's To Follow" in this double anthology of the things that lurk and a trip to Hell.

After reading these poems and stories it was great to work beside some powerful writers. Such as Dona Fox with her short story "Crawl Space" A woman's split personality has a darkside with an opening paragraph that sucks you in right from the begin and holds on way after you finish reading.

I got a second chance to have another short story beside Alex S. Johnson. On the Hell Citizens side. He drops Smoking Hotties into our laps and gives us numerous recipes for the Vjay.

Stuart Keane - "From Within": A women's biological clock is ticking. Her scheduled abortion appointment is haunting her. It literally crawls out of her from within.

Toneye Eyenot gives a tour guide reference, with a walk through Hell like he was the one who said let there be fire.

Lenny Rushmore as poems on both sides that flows with a madness of intelligent word-awesomeness.

Found a lot of new authors to look out for in the future, and their previous works. Dona Fox & Lenny Rushmore being my new, most favorite out of the bunch. Below is a list of my favorites from both sides of the anthology.

**Cellar Doors III: Animals

-The Beast by Lenny Rushmore
-The Thorn I Can't Pluck... by Lenny Rushmore
-Rabi Blood Craze by Toneye Eyenot
-Crawl Space by Dona Fox
-Mary Anne by Dona Fox
-From Within by Stuart Keene

**Hell 2 Citizens**

-The New Recruit by Toneye Eyenot
-Smoking Hotties by Alex S. Johnson
-Laughing in The Fortress of the Damned by Robert Holt
-The grinder by Mathias Jansson
-Hell's Promise: The Beautiful Suffering by David Slater
-much more of too much by Lenny Rushmore
-the land of the flame by Lenny Rushmore
-Idol Promise by Timothy Frasier
