Joseph is the author of Meat, Garbage Man and The Kill Crew, winner of the British Fantasy Society’s Sydney J. Bounds Award and has received praise from Stephen King.

We caught up with Joseph D’Lacey who is delighted to be working with Proxima Books and Editor, Steve Haynes. Joseph says, “Steve approached me and said that he was interested in publishing one of my books. I’m excited to have a new publisher. Blood Fugue is my twist on the vampire genre.”

Editor, Steve Haynes says, “We’re incredibly excited to be working with Joseph, an astonishingly gifted and provocative writer. Blood Fugue is a visceral eco-horror that just swept us away.”

We will keep you informed of new updates between the ecological master of horror, Joseph D’Lacey and fresh-faced imprint, Proxima Books.

Blood Fugue is set for release in Autumn 2012.
