Here’s a small selection of the horror and genre news that caught our eye during the last week …
New collection by George Daniel Lea, Born in Blood Volume One, out now from Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing
New from George Daniel Lea (Strange Playgrounds) comes a collection of short stories, released through Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing. The collection is the first of two planned volumes, and the chilling cover art is complemented by the synopsis, which cryptically talks of profound pain, agony and ecstasy. The collection is available in paperback and kindle formats and was released in mid-February. You can pick up your copy, right now, here.
From the author of Ghouljaw and Other Stories, comes When it’s Time for Dead Things to Die, the tale of Joseph Lowe, a man who falls for the wrong girl and finds himself in thrall to a rich and powerful family, headed by a man far older than he seems. Somehow he must find his way out of it. Released on 18 March, you can pre-order your copy, here.

Johnston’s The Widening Gyre. All three are available now.
