Soul Food Stories

An Otherworldly Feast for the Living, the Dead, and Those Who Have Yet to Decide

By Anna Burke and Jenn Alexander, Jacob Budenz, Virginia Black, Cathy Pegau, Ann McMan

Sapphic stories for Halloween. Bywater Books authors take you on a fascinating journey through their Allhallows imagination.

Salem West and Christel Cogneau have assembled a powerhouse lineup of Bywater Books and Amble Press authors to explore, subvert, and reinvigorate the bountiful feast of Allhallows phantasmagoria in this stunning collection.

To the living, “soul food’ has a very specific meaning, history, and flavor. But what does “soul food” mean to the demon, ghost, fiend, witch, spirit, or vampire? How does their ingenuity and wit rise and fall in the taking, baking, erasing, embracing, and defacing of sustenance?

West and Cogneau have challenged their authors to explore these and other questions in surprising and fascinating ways. Sometimes sweet and other times terrifying, sometimes warm or otherwise demented, these stories set the table for an otherworldly feast of delight and intrigue.

Let the banquet begin . . .
