Happy release day to the first horror novella from Tenebrous Press! One Hand to Hold, One Hand to Carve is surreal journey of identity and trying to live in a society when one is missing half a body. There’s co-dependence, body horror, and a deep look into what singularity as a person means.
Join me in celebrating this release with this interview with the author, M. Shaw. It features some shop talk about the craft behind the novel, the Milkshake-Ducking of the Dewey Decimal System, and their experience working with a new small press.

The debut novella from Tenebrous Press delivers on its promise of new weird body horror. In a morgue, a cadaver cloven in half wakes up as two distinct personalities: Left and Right. Where one tries to assimilate, the other descends into a madness that brings the tale back to the beginning.
A surreal journey of identity and trying to live in a society when one is missing half a body, a delightful inaugural introduction to a new horror press.
An interview with author M. Shaw will be posted on release date, April 1st.
