Here’s a small selection of the horror and genre news that caught our eye during the last week …
Coming 20 July from Bram Stoker Award-nominated author Ross Jeffery and Cemetery Gates Media, Only the Stains Remain
Only The Stains Remain is the haunting story of Jude and Kyle, two brothers whose lives are destroyed when, following the death of their mother, their three abusive uncles Dwight, Lucius, and Lenny move in to the family home. But whilst Jude suffers to a degree, Kyle is the one who takes the brunt of their attention, submitting himself to preserve his younger brother’s innocence. As a grown man, Jude’s mind turns to vengeance for what they have endured. He has waited a long time, but now he is strong enough, and cold-hearted enough, to do the deed. Enacting one harrowing revenge after another, Jude’s dark quest to punish the wrongs of the past will show that after all is said and done, only the stains of the past will remain. Available to pre-order in eBook, with the paperback edition to follow soon, you can guarantee your copy here, now.
Every day is steeped in horror. An inexplicable force in the wild. A serpent lurking in the shadows. Or the sinister thoughts forged in the deepest abyss of a tortured mind. Lagoe offers a gamut of horrific experiences artfully woven into thirteen stories. Explore the darkness within a selfish heart, face death among ghosts, and roar into the snarling maw of the beast. Horror can be empowering if we can survive our most dismal dreams. Red Lagoe, author of Lucid Screams, brings us her follow up collection of horror shorts, Dismal Dreams, with a foreword by Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Devil’s Dreamland, Sara Tantlinger. Available in paperback and eBook, you can pick up your copy right now, here.
From Journalstone and S. L. Edwards, The Death of an Author, the new short fiction collection, available now
In his second short story collection, S. L. Edwards offers tales of fantasy and horror, all-too human and all-too terrifying. In this volume, you’ll find stories of vampires lording over the zombie apocalypse, gunslingers fighting their way through haunted mining towns, dragons at the end of the world, and the death of an author. At the intersection of pulp horror, weird fiction, and a general love for fantasy, The Death of An Author is a kinetic collection, with offerings both for those who enjoyed Whiskey and Other Unusual Ghosts and for new readers as well. Available in paperback, you can pick up your copy right here, now.
