News Round-up Week Ending 19 October 2018

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

TheFaithfulNew release from Matt Hayward, The Faithful, available now through Sinister Grin Press

From Irish author Matt Hayward (What Do Monsters Fear?Brain Dead Blues) comes the new release, The Faithful, from Sinister Grin Press. Described as a cross between At the Mountains of Madness and They Live, the story revolves around a comedian, Leo, giving a farewell show in New York City. When a man with cerebral palsy approaches him after the show and confides in him about his weird dreams, featuring a place called No Man’s Land, he shrugs it off. That is until the man is found dead and a note is taped to Leo’s RV which simply says “See you soon, funnyman.” You can get your copy, in eBook or paperback right now, here.
