State of Horror: North Carolina will release on Tuesday, February 10th. To celebrate this event, Charon Coin Press will feature each of the authors included in the book leading up to the release date. At this time, we have featured authors: Armand Rosamilia, Margaret L. Colton, Susan Hicks Wong, Frank Larnerd, and Frank J. Edler. Each feature will have a little about the author, the synopsis of their story in State of Horror: North Carolina, and a brief interview to get to know the person beyond the words. Today’s State of Horror Featured Author is someone new to the scene, author Nathanael Gass.
The State of Horror: New Jersey was Nathanael Gass’ first publication with the story, Red Eyes. He’s been writing for a bit more than a year now and primarily enjoys writing somewhat allegorical stories featuring anthropomorphic animals. Occasionally he dabbles in other genres, such as in this anthology, horror. He lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and attends the University of Chapel Hill. His primary interests are writing, Dota 2, and school. He generally spends his time doing one of the three (and rarely enough of the first). He hopes to make a career out of writing.

As the couple heads back to Brittany’s family home, the night unfolds in ways neither expected.
