Here’s a small selection of the horror and genre news that caught our eye during the last week …
‘Fangoria Presents’ kicks off on 11 September with Our Lady of the Inferno by Preston Fassel
A name that needs no introduction for horror fans, Fangoria begins its new ‘Fangoria Presents’ imprint with Our Lady of the Inferno by Preston Fassel. Set in 1983, the book centres on two strong women. One is martial artist and prostitute, Ginny Kurva, who plays the role of mother, teacher and hero to the people in her life, but who is also fighting demons from the past and reaching breaking point. The other is Nicolette Aster, a highly respected worker at the Staten Island landfill who has a dark, bloody secret connected with her nocturnal activities at the site. The two women have no connections, but by summer, one of them will be dead. Our Lady of the Inferno hits book stores 11 September and you can pre-order your copy now.
