Burnt Tongues Anthology by Chuck Palahniuk & Richard Thomas &  digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

“The lessons and the antidotes and the essays that went into Consider This were originally written for The Cult website. The stories that went into Burnt Tongues were exercises based on those lessons. So if you like Consider This, please check out Burnt Tongues and see how those lessons were put into practice.”
—Chuck Palahniuk

Transgressive fiction authors write stories some are afraid to tell. Stories with taboo subjects, unique voices, shocking images—nothing safe or dry.

 

Burnt Tongues is a collection of transgressive stories selected by a rigorous nomination and vetting process and hand-selected by Chuck Palahniuk, bestselling author of Fight Club, as the best of The Cult workshop. These stories run the gamut from horrific and fantastic to humorous and touching, but each leaves a lasting impression. Some may say even a scar.
