News Round-up Week Ending 17 February 2017

Here’s a small selection of the horror and genre news that caught our eye during the last week …

Birdbox

Special edition of Josh Malerman’s Bird Box to be released through Dark Regions Press

First published in 2014, Josh Malerman’s Bird Box received glowing praise, as it told the story of a woman rowing her two children down river blindfolded in an attempt to escape something, be it man or creature. Dark Regions Press have announced that the book is to be re-issued in a special edition, with stunning artwork by Vincent Chong (a sample of which can be seen above). The special edition will feature an oversize hard cover, illustrated dust jacket and will be signed by both the author and the artist. It will be limited to five hundred and twenty-six copies, so interested parties will have to act first to get their copy. Pre-orders will begin soon and you can find all the information on the release here.


Realm of the Damned - Blu-ray Packshot

Richard Chizmar reveals new novella co-written with Stephen King to take place in Castle Rock

After billing 1991’s Needful Things as the last story to come from the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine, it seems Stephen King is making a return to the town in Maine of his own invention. The news was leaked by Richard Chizmar who confirmed that a new novella which he has co-written with King will take place in the iconic location. There are no plot details thus far, but we will bring you more news on this as we have it.
