Reviewers Praise "Funereal Diseases of the Mind"

Gaithersburg, MD (PressExposure) August 03, 2009 -- Funereal Diseases of the Mind: Fifteen tales of dark erotica, written by horror erotica author Anthony Beal and released earlier this year, has already begun garnering favorable reviews. Respected literary community publication EKG Literary Magazine is the latest authority to review Beal's work, and had the following to say in its August 2009 issue:

"...It has been a long time since I read anything that struck a chord with me as these 15 short tales did...If you are looking for something that is well written and thought provoking, this is a book that should not be missed..."

In June 2009, online genre fiction news magazine Macabre Mansion wrote:

"....The author of this book has definite talent. His skillful use of language meant that there were places in this book that I was disgusted, creeped out, amused, and even horrified...I will be on the lookout for Mr. Beal's work in the future...."

As Beal describes it, Funereal Diseases of the Mind is "a collection of my shorter pieces of dark erotica featuring several works that have never before appeared in print." Although its blending of horror themes and eroticism aims primarily at readers aged 21 to 44, the descriptive narratives and relatable characters portrayed throughout a variety of stories and settings strives to engage everyone that likes their terror tales laced with shades of erotica.
