A year ago, This Is Horror was born albeit under its former alias Read Horror. It’s been one hell of a journey thus far and we’re not planning on slowing down any time soon. In fact, we’re stepping things up a notch with a brand new arm – the This Is Horror Premium Chapbook Series. These premium chapbooks will showcase stories from some of the very best names in genre today and will be released every quarter. So, without further ado here’s the line-up for the first year.
David Moody, author of the best-selling Autumn and Hater series, is first up with Joe & Me. This is scheduled to be released at the start of June and will be followed by a very special launch event (more details to follow).
Next is a collaboration between two heavyweights in the British horror scene – Gary McMahon, author of This Is Horror’s Novel of The Year – The Concrete Grove, and Simon Bestwick, author of The Faceless. Their story, Thin Men with Yellow Faces will be released in Autumn 2012.
We will be publishing The Fox by award-winning author, Conrad Williams. His accolades include the British Fantasy Award for Best Novel, 2010, the International Horror Guild Award for Best Novel, 2007 and the British Fantasy Award for Best Novella, 2008. The Fox will be released in Winter 2012/13.
To round-off our year is Joseph D’Lacey, leader of the eco-horror revolution and British Fantasy Award winner for Best Newcomer, 2009. His as yet untitled chapbook will be released in Spring 2013.
Pre-orders and prices for both David Moody’s Joe & Me and a yearly subscription to the This Is Horror Premium Chapbook Series will be announced shortly.
The first 200 yearly subscribers will be entered into a prize draw to win a free subscription to the This Is Horror Premium Chapbook Series the following year running from Summer 2013 – Spring 2014. Each premium chapbook will have a limited run of no more than 500 copies. Watch this space for more information.
