Scared and running out of options, Lauren visits a professional occult consultant, William Daniels.
To escape the horror attacking her at every turn, Lauren and William descend into a strange occult world filled with evil spirits fueled by the darkest forces.
Why we’re excited about this book:
C.S. Humble is fairly new to the horror scene, but has been making his name known over the past few years. Humble is the author of The Survivors Trilogy (The Massacre at Yellow Hill, and A Red Winter in the West, book three TBA), and Minotaur: A Collection of Horror, and his short fiction has been featured in Origins & Endings, Volume 2. Humble has also written comics (Father Faust #1-4,Reichenbach #1-2, and Capetown #1-2.) as well as non-fiction articles for Torque Magazine and LitReactor. With his latest, Humble gives us a twisted spin on the possession tale, plunging readers into a dark occult world they’ll not soon forget. Sadie Hartmann (Mother Horror) says: “All These Subtle Deceits leaves a lasting impression. Drawing inspiration from iconic demon possession horror elements, Humble crafts a remarkably fresh take on demonology, circumventing religiosity in order to combat evil in a way that will excite fans of the genre; strikingly unique storytelling voice coupled with intricate plotting and detailed characters. I’m definitely hoping for more in this universe.” and Laird Barron (Swift to Chase) says: “All These Subtle Deceits is a sinuous fusion of black magic fantasy and thriller. I’m a C.S. Humble fan.”
Why C.S. is excited about this book:
“All These Subtle Deceits is a story about trauma and demons, literal and metaphorical. Think of it like this: What if William Peter Blatty and Raymond Chandler wrote a script for a film directed by David Fincher. That’ll give you some idea of the book’s intended effect.”
All These Subtle Deceits by C.S. Humble will be available for pre-order Summer 2022.
