Here’s a small selection of the horror and genre news that caught our eye during the last week …
From Scottish author Graham Masterton (Walkers, The House that Jack Built) comes the new novel, Ghost Virus. In a story that fuses crime and supernatural horror, Ghost Virus opens with a bizarre, unsettling suicide, before following two police investigators from Tooting police in south London as they attempt to uncover the truth behind a plague of crimes spreading like a virus throughout the capital. Could it be that this plague has supernatural origins? Released through Head of Zeus publishing, Ghost Virus is released 1 May and you can pre-order your copy right now.
