Eric LaRocca explores guilt and abandonment in ‘Starving Ghosts in Every Thread’

Readers who love poignant horror with LGBT characters will not want to miss Starving Ghosts in Every Thread by Eric LaRocca. Fresh from his MFA program at Emerson College, author Eric LaRocca independently released his debut novella, Starving Ghosts in Every Thread, on Friday, May 1st, 2020.

Although this is Mr. LaRocca’s first full length literary endeavor, his short fiction has seen publication in various anthologies and literary journals in the US and abroad such as, Of Devils & DeviantsStiff Things, and Year’s Best Hardcore Horror: Volume 2.

A somber mixture of dark fantasy and queer horror, Starving Ghosts in Every Thread follows a young girl named Teddy as she harbors a gruesome secret – her body literally unravels unless she feeds off the emotions of others. When she encounters another girl from town with an equally disturbing secret, it’s not long before Teddy’s insatiable hunger fueled by guilt begins to threaten her safety and violently touch all those who cross her path with disaster.

This is the book I was afraid to write,” LaRocca explains. “It’s so deeply personal. I think horror and dark fantasy are the perfect genres to explore profoundly upsetting themes like guilt and abandonment.” He goes on to reveal, “Honoring my sexuality is also hugely important to me. There are so many talented openly queer writers currently working in the realm of speculative fiction and it’s a privilege to add my voice to the mix.”

Starving Ghosts in Every Thread was released on Friday, May 1st 2020. Readers can order paperback and Kindle copies HERE:
