There may already be one in the back catalog, but I'd love to see Cemetery Dance put out an anthology of funny horror stories. Real gut-busters, as it were. I just finished reading John Dies at the End and Lansdale's hilarious literary mash-up Dread Island and both were hysterical in many places. Made me want to read (and write) more humorous horror. Humorror?

Thoughts? Name any titles that spring to mind in this category? Another favorite is Christopher Moore's The Stupidest Angel.

I love ounces of humor in the horror I read. If it is written strictly for the humor it can feel forced, but there are some authors that can use true wit and really get me laughing. Nothing feels better than an escaping guffaw from an unexpected turn of phrase or knowing wink in the right place in a story.
