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

widowspointNew collaboration between Richard and Billy Chizmar, Widow’s Point, available now

Available in both signed and unsigned hardcover editions, the new novella from Richard and Billy Chizmar is now available from PS Publishing (published by Cemetery Dance). Featuring illustrations by Bob Eggleton, Francois Vaiilancourt and Glenn Chadbourne, depending on the version you buy, Widow’s Point is the story of the lighthouse at Harper’s Cove and the strange, unexplainable deaths that tend to happen there. The novella is a much expanded version of the short story of the same name. For more information about both the signed and unsigned editions and to order your copy, click here.
