Praise

Praise for Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke:


“Some horror walks you down a dark corridor, where there’s whispers and laughter, sobs and screams. Other horror starts down at the end of that corridor, where there’s a door that opens onto you don’t know what. Read this, and then decide where Eric LaRocca has left you. Not that it matters. There’s no way out.” 
Stephen Graham Jones, author of The Only Good Indians and My Heart is a Chainsaw


“Eric LaRocca’s unflinching Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke will crawl inside you, move stuff around, and make you see the world differently, like all great stories do.” – Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Pallbearers Club.


“A startling affair… I’ll be cleaning up particles of darkness in my office for weeks.” – Josh Malerman, author of Bird Box and Malorie


“Bleak, clever, edgy, and vicious. Eric LaRocca draws his readers in for something they will never expect and never forget.” - Sadie Hartman, ‘Mother Horror’ 


“LaRocca’s combination of structure, adept pacing and masterful language is more complex than meets the eye… A must-read for fans of body horror, epistolary novels, and depravity” – Library Journal


“A hauntingly elegant, masterfully written, and ultimately devastating indictment of cruel manipulation and even crueler submission. This is one deeply fucked-up heartbreaker. You have been warned.” – John Skipp, author of The Light at the End


“Part Dennis Cooper’s ’The Sluts’, part David Cronenberg’s ’The Brood’… Eric LaRocca’s ’Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke’ is a masterpiece of epistolary body horror.” – Max Booth III author of We Need to Do Something


“‘Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke’ is a tight, merciless epistolary, each piece of correspondence coiling the reader around its finger and never letting go. LaRocca skillfully weaves a grotesque, unforgettable page-turner of manipulation and depravity. – Hailey Piper, author of Queen of Teeth


“With darkly poetic prose and chilling stories that peel back layers of skin to reveal a beating, bloody heart, Eric LaRocca is the clear literary heir of Clive Barker.” – Tyler Jones, author of Criterium and The Dark Side of the Room


“Eric LaRocca is a fierce talent that knows no limit, masterful and utterly unmissable!” – Ross Jeffery, author of Juniper and Tome
