News Round-up Week Ending 13 August 2021

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

BloodyTracksBigfootOut now from writer David Irons and Severed Press, The Bloody Tracks of Bigfoot

Venturing up Onion Mountain – Portland, Oregon, an independent film crew attempts to make a low-budget slasher movie titled “Mountaintop Madman Massacre.” When a special FX shot goes wrong, the crew brings the legendary Bigfoot’s wrath upon them, and a desperate battle for survival begins. Fighting erupts between cast and crew, as the fictional film becomes Cinéma vérité, and their sadistic director begins to document the bloody carnage of the terrifying beast. Can anyone survive the creature’s savagery, or will the raw footage be paid in blood? In the end, will any of them escape Bigfoot before the shocking final reel? Available now in eBook, with a paperback edition to follow, you can grab your copy here.


CunningFolkCunning Folk, the new novel by master of horror, Adam L. G. Nevill, coming 25 October

Money’s tight and their new home is a fixer-upper. Deep in rural South West England, with an ancient wood at the foot of the garden, Tom and his family are miles from anywhere and anyone familiar. His wife, Fiona, was never convinced that buying the money-pit at auction was a good idea. Not least because the previous owner committed suicide. Though no one can explain why. Within days of crossing the threshold, when hostilities break out with the elderly couple next door, Tom’s dreams of future contentment are threatened by an escalating tit-for-tat campaign of petty damage and disruption. Increasingly isolated and tormented, Tom risks losing his home, everyone dear to him and his mind. Because, surely, only the mad would suspect that the oddballs across the hedgerow command unearthly powers. A malicious magic even older than the eerie wood and the strange barrow therein. A hallowed realm from where, he suspects, his neighbours draw a hideous power. Released 25 October, just in time for Halloween, you can pre-order the exclusive hardcover direct from Nevill himself or the paperback and eBook editions here.
