Here’s a small selection of the horror and genre news that caught our eye during the last week …
Fans of all things supernatural will be eager to get their hands on the latest release from Sinister Grim Press, which is available from today. The latest offering from Jonathan Janz (Children of the Dark, Wolfland) tells the story of Chicago under siege from a serial killer dubbed ‘The Sweet Sixteen killer,’ who is brutally attacking young girls. Things take a turn for the worse when a fourteen-year-old boy attacks his family and is exhibiting signs of demonic possession. In the foreword to the book, Janz pays tribute to the influence of the late William Peter Blatty and fans of The Exorcist will recognise the influence of that great writer in this book. It also comes complete with a novella, entitled Exorcist Road for free. You can get your copy here.
