01Publishing is proud to announce the release of“The Sadist’s Bible” by Shirley Jackson Award finalist and Stoker Nominee Nicole Cushing. Described as “Audacious, original and gleefully offensive,” by author Jack Ketchum, Cushing has been turning heads with a narrative style that is equal parts beauty and brutality. With her latest novella, “The Sadist’s Bible” she plans to take readers even further to the edge with a tale of decadence, death, and divine suicide.
The confidence and expertise so blatantly evident in Nicole Cushing’s writing is astonishing.– Thomas Ligotti.
This contemporary novella applies a very ancient archetypal element to modern themes and characters to interesting effect. - Jaffa Kintigh / Jaffalogue
