Christina Pfeiffer of the Mothers of Mayhem podcast had this to say about the book: ""Every play is stunning, beautiful, and forces the reader to question things. But 'An American Demon' is, by far, one of the most beautiful works I have read this year. Just... this is going to live rent free in my head until I die."

Coming Soon: PLAYS/hauntologies


Coming September 18th from Madness Heart Press 

"Having dabbled in texts for performances in his prior books, PLAYS/hauntologies sees Ben Arzate’s first full-length foray into works for the stage. Combining the absurdity of Samuel Beckett, the cruelty of Antonin Artaud, the postdramatic vision of Heiner Muller, and a wide mix of inspirations from genre fiction, these pieces are a deeply eclectic mix.

From the surreal science fiction of “The Doomed Flight of the Taurus-19” to the pitch-black humor of “The Confessor” to the searing anti-war monologue “An American Demon,” these plays are guaranteed to entertain, horrify, and bring the minds of readers to new and strange places."

Pre-order the book here.
