"A fascinating mosaic of human experiences, each leading us deep through a gauntlet of the bodily macabre."
— Hailey Piper, author of Queen of Teeth
Inside Out is a heart-pounding, brain-melting, stomach-turning phenomenal debut from Lor Gislason, that serves a fresh and oozing take on traditional body-horror. Entwined amongst the gloop, gore and gaping wounds, lies a powerful tale of what it means to be human, in whatever form that takes. Visceral and spectacular.
-Tabatha Wood, author of SEEDS
“Lor Gislason’s Inside Out turns body horror, well, inside out. In the wake of a contagion that melts and mutates flesh, Gislason stitches together flash fiction vignettes from over a dozen points of view, scooping out the plague’s messy physical, emotional, and even spiritual ramifications on the survivors. Fast-paced and insightful, while never less than gleefully and deliriously gruesome, Inside Out is a squirming treat for horror fans. “
-Gordon B. White, author of Rookfield
"Inside Out’s series of vignettes from the front lines of a horrific pandemic is prescient, heartfelt, and disgustingly entertaining. It is goopy and visceral, but those things don’t matter without heart. Lor makes us care about their characters quickly, in a way that had me dreading what would come next. Ultimately, Inside Out is about all of us, about moving on with normalcy in the face of horrendously abnormal circumstances, the consequences of willful ignorance and hubris, and the danger and necessity of hope. It’s also just ridiculously bonkers fun. This is easily one of my favourite pieces of pandemic horror fiction in the last few years."
— Brandon Applegate, author of Those We Left Behind and Other Sacrifices
“Gislason takes us on a disgustingly fun, flexible romp through weird science and nightmare biology. Inside Out is an exciting and surprising journey through a wanton world of goop."
— Joe Koch, author of The Wingspan of Severed Hands
*Inside Out* is a kaleidoscope of goop and gore and I couldn’t read it quick enough. It’s like Gislason took *The Blob* and *Society* and everything that ever melted and gathered it all up into one big squirming, pulsating, bubble of goo. I loved it. - Luke Kondor, author of The Run Fantastic, Showrunner for The Other Stories podcast
