New collection by Nadia Bulkin and divination-themed anthology coming soon from Word Horde
Fans of weird fiction will be delighted to know that one of its strongest recent voices, Nadia Bulkin, will be releaseing the collection, She Said Destroy, through Word Horde 20 August. Featuring thirteen stories, accompanied by a foreword by none other than Paul Tremblay, the collection deals with socio-political themes while rooting itself firmly within the weird genre. Three of the stories included are Shirley Jackson award nominees and one of the stories is brand new.
Readers curious about whether man can contact the spirit world, either for fortune telling, or to communicate with passed loved ones, can read a new collection of fourteen tales, edited by Ross E. Lockhart. With the title Tales from a Talking Board, the anthology deals with multiple facets of commune with the hereafter and includes stories from Kristi DeMeester, David James Keaton, Anya Martin and more. Fans will be waiting a little longer for this one, with release coming on 24 October. For information on both of these coming releases and more, you can head over to Word Horde’s website, here.
