Here’s a small selection of the horror and genre news that caught our eye during the last week …
Following the death of his mother, Sean Webster finds himself embroiled in a mystery stretching back to the nineteenth century. As he delves deeper into the mystery of the missing frigate, ‘Gospall’, he has the chance to break a curse which has been affecting his family for generations. While The Haunting of Gospall is Solomon Strange’s first novel, it is receiving excellent press, receiving a blurb from legendary author Tim Lebbon among others. Telos Publishing might just have found themselves something special in this novel and you can pre-order your copy, priced £12.99 at their website, here.
