Available at Amazon (paperback and Kindle edition) DARK MARY, my first novel translated into English, released by Independent Legions. Buy your copy at Amazon.
"A heavy metal dj with steel-backed French nails and a lust for a Norwegian Amazon, a corpse-worshipping priest with a fetish for human hearts, a photographer with a portfolio of mutilated bodies--these are just a few of DARK MARY’s cast of the depraved and the damned. Di Orazio piledrives the reader into a mosh pit of horrors; necrophilia, necrophagia, snake-fucking, and those pesky meta dead who just keep reanimating, hungrier than ever. Oh, and exploding heads anyone? With scenes of body horror at its most grotesque and unspeakable, Di Orazio proves himself again a master of splatterpunk in this electro-shock of a novel. "
— Lucy Taylor, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of 'The Safety of Unknown Cities '
"Extreme, Splatterpunk-esque horror fiction from Italy's answer to Clive Barker. Mutilations, necrophilia and cannibalism. A horror fans wet dream."
— Jack Bantry, Splatterpunk Award winning-editor of 'Splatterpunk Fighting Back'
Synopsis: Young bodies are piling in Rome. Far from ordinary, the victims have a few things in common: having listened to certain music prior to being chased, mauled, and partially eaten in overgrown areas along the Tiber and Aniene riverbanks. Days or weeks later, and elsewhere, their brains expand, their skulls bursting, the bone solidity compromised by several drilled holes. Alfredo Vanacura, a hypochondriac Carabinieri Corps ex-Marshal, is called back from retirement to investigate. How does the case connect with petite, white-snake-wearing Dark Mary, the most powerful hard-rock DJ Rome has ever seen? Her secret is either sepulchral charisma, or something else entirely. Dark Mary has become ever-more popular, people worship her. And Martyna, her necrophotographer lover, her mortal enemy, is sick to the bone with jealousy, or maybe something more savage. Meanwhile, Father Sebastiano, a pale and sickly priest with porphyria, coughs up a mysterious black clay every time he performs last rites. He hides something beneath his church, in the bowels of Rome… Paths and destinies crisscross, inevitably impacting each another in an extreme, decadent, virulent tale of terminal love.
