“Horror readers love a challenge, and with such an intriguing and mysterious title, no doubt they’ve met their match with Hughes’ debut collection.”
A strange book mysteriously appears on your doorstep …
An old woman and her weird creatures made of concrete …
A man desperate to escape a horror from another world …
A computer that is much more than what it looks to be …
A cryptic void on a collision course with someone’s home …
These five tales, all in The Last Book You’ll Ever Read
Why we’re excited about this book:
Horror newcomer Scott Hughes has been publishing fiction, poetry, and essays for several years. You can find his work in Crazyhorse, Deep Magic, Entropy, Strange Horizons, One Sentence Poems, Redivider, and Compaso: Journal of Comparative Research in Anthropology and Sociology. When not writing, Hughes is an instructor at Central Georgia Technical College. Horror readers love a challenge, and with such an intriguing and mysterious title, no doubt they’ve met their match with Hughes’ debut collection. Andy Davidson (In the Valley of the Sun) says: “Nimble and poetic and downright freaky, The Last Book You’ll Ever Read startles, unsettles, and deeply delights. Scott Hughes has crafted one trip of a read.”
Why Scott is excited about this book:
“I’ve been writing horror stories since I discovered Stephen King’s works when I was twelve. I’ve had many stories, poems, and essays published over the years, but this is my first book, which is probably the most obvious reason I’m excited about it. Also, I’m ready for it to come out so that readers can learn the reason for the title, which has been the number one question I get asked. It (hopefully) won’t be the last book you’ll ever read, but you will find out why I chose that title.”
The Last Book You’ll Ever Read by Scott Hughes is forthcoming 17 September 2019 from Sinister Stoat Press and is available for pre-order now.
