News Round-up Week Ending 12 January 2018

Here’s a small selection of the horror and genre news that caught our eye during the last week …

Broken Shells - DigitalBroken Shells, from Michael Patrick Hicks, out 6 February

On 6 February, the new novella, Broken Shells, from dark fiction writer Michael Patrick Hicks (ConvergenceThe Marque) is released through High Fever Books. The novella is a story of a man, Antoine DeWitt, who is down on his luck, so desperate that he walks head first into what he knows is likely a scam. There to capitalise on his misfortune is Joe Dangle, a man with buried secrets and a will to exploit people like Antoine for everything they can. What unfolds is DeWitt’s struggle to escape with his life. With strong critical responses to many of Hicks’ prior work, this is sure to be an entertaining ride. You can pre-order your copy of Broken Shells, here.
