Here’s a small selection of the horror and genre news that caught our eye during the last week …
Already receiving excellent reviews from far and wide, Duncan P. Bradshaw’s new novel, Cannibal Nuns From Outer Space, is coming 26 July from EyeCue Productions. Father Flynn is the UK’s chief church operative, leading the struggle between good and evil. But he has slipped up, and must now choose between preserving the last remaining church microfiche machine or submit himself for rehabilitation. In the meantime, the titular cannibal nuns from space arrive, ready for their latest harvest of death and destruction. Will Flynn be able to get sober in time to fight them off. You can find out next week. Pre-orders are available, here.
Following on from the re-release of a number of Joseph D’Lacey’s novels, W. F. Howes, the UK’s largest audiobook producer, have announced a new two-book deal to create audiobook versions of D’Lacey’s acclaimed novels, Meat and Garbage Man. Following the re-issue of Meat (which includes an introduction by This is Horror’s Michael David Wilson) and three of his other novels, a number of new readers have been drawn to his work. Off the back of that, D’Lacey has signed audio rights to these two books to W. F. Howes. Never released in the audio format before, both D’Lacey himself and Craig Thompson, acquisitions editor at W. F. Howes are understandably excited to be putting out these new releases, with the current schedule in time for a halloween release. More news as we have it.
Released today from writers Linda D. Addison and Alessandro Manzetti, The Place of Broken Things, a collection of poetry from Crystal Lake Publishing
From Bram Stoker Award Winners Linda D. Addison and Alessandro Manzetti, comes The Place of Broken Things. Josh Malerman (Bird Box) says: “Addison and Manzetti appear, here, as a songwriting team, certain tunes attributed to one, then the other, but regularly meeting, so that not only do we get to know where each great poet is coming from, but their electric union to boot. At turns gritty and aqueous, this book is totally alive. Addison and Manzetti have written a volume in which literally every line is worthy of being that book’s title.” Pick up your copy today, here.
