The beauty and sadness of words clutches at the heart like the cold hand of Death. Image of darkness close in on us as we feel the anguish of life's final moments.

The darkness is beautiful and yet terrifying, calling on the strongest emotions for survival.

This collection of poetry combines words of beauty, of despair, of darkness, of mortality that reach out and chill the soul like an Untimely Frost.

As of May 25th, 2018, Quantum Corsets has been acquired by LVP Publications in the United States and has officially changed hands. This includes the transfer of all contracts for the seven previously published titles — Flash Fear, Mummy Knows Best, Weird Ales Volumes 1-3, Infection and Wolf at the Door.

Over the next couple months, LVP Publications will be reviewing and re-releasing these titles or returning story rights back to the authors. Authors will be notified by official email with further details once these decisions are made.

The Breast Cancer charity anthology, Her Dark Voices Vol 2, will continue as planned with minor adjustments. The anthology will be published as Dark Voices under LVP Publications and all proceeds will be donated.

Theresa Derwin and her team of editors will continue seeing the anthology through. Theresa will also continue the launch as originally planned. Updated contracts from LVP Publications will go out to HDV2 contributors in the next couple days.

We realize that many of you may have questions or concerns regarding the transition, but please be assured that we intend to make it as smooth as possible for everyone involved. At this time, we ask that general questions be limited as we make the transition.

However, questions and concerns regarding past due payments or contributor copies may be directed to Theresa Derwin at and urgent contract questions going forward may be directed to MJ Sydney at

Thank you to everyone for your patience and understanding during this period of transition.
