Limited edition hard cover releases from Philip Fracassi and Michael Bailey coming next week from Unnerving
Coming 16 July, Unnerving will be releasing extremely limited runs of new works by Michael Bailey and Philip Fracassi. Fracassi’s novelette, Overnight, is the tale of a stalker arriving on a film set and begging for a souvenir from a starlet. Things get out of hand and escalate fast. Oversight, by Michael Bailey features two novelettes, ‘Darkroom’ and ‘Sad Face’ packaged together in a single volume. These books are limited to sixty copies each and are beautifully crafted (take a look on the order page for detailed photographs). You can order your copy for $60, while stocks last, here.
From Grinning Skull Press comes Vampire Worms by Neil Davies. The book finds Paul Walker, a man who happens upon a murder victim drained of blood. Though he doesn’t believe in vampires, witnessing the murder of his sister by the beasts convinces him they are real, only different from what the legends had led him to believe.
