“Frühlingsstimmen is another amazing entry in the Hammer & Anvil Books’ Danse Macabre catalogue. I love these anthologies because the erudite and witty editor Adam Henry Carriere manages to combine cutting edge work from modern day writers with selections from the past that may have been forgotten but definitely deserve to be read and appreciated. Along with wonderful forgotten classics such as “A Haunted House” by Virginia Woolf, “A Ghoul’s Accountant” by Stephen Crane, and “The Thing at Ghent” by Balzac, we are treated to works by modern day writers such as “Grace” by Marc Vincenz, Bill Mayer’s “We had Great Beauty and sadness”, and “Bodysnatchers” by Peter Weltner. Mr. Carriere is doing a great service by keeping readers in tune with the new and paying homage to the past – all wonderful treats!”
Frühlingsstimmen celebrates the abundance of voices from around the world and beyond the grave that spring forth with coloratura brio, whether through drama, humour, or poetic music. Drawn from the pages of Danse Macabre – An Online Literary Magazine, connoisseurs of multihued letters will be enchanted by the ample selection of literary entertainments awaiting them in this e-anthology of the macabrely.
