New anthology featuring writers of horror, science fiction and screenplays, Dark Voices, coming 29 January 2021
Dark Voices is a collection of short stories by some of the most controversial and respected genre authors, actors and filmmakers along with some exciting new writers together in a creative response to the pressures of an ever-uncertain reality. Horror has often been the prism through which society view their universal fears and frustrations and these are the voices that echo the current mood with anxiety of imminent ecological apocalypse, the trauma of ageing, our inevitable death and societal distrust and decay. A dash of reality with a horrific and macabre twist from Rod Glenn (Seahouses Slaughterhouses), Dave Jeffery (We are the Cosmos), Peter Mckeirnon (Invasion-A), Louis du Toit (Last Gasp), CL Raven (Buried at Sea), JR Park (Grinderhouse), Jonathan Butcher (The Last Hangover), Michelle von Eschen (The Madness Coil), James Plumb (Zero) and Matt Shaw (Toss and Turn). Dark Voices is filled with insectoid creepy crawlies, geriatric zombies, ghosts and ghouls and a menagerie of other deadly deviants brought to life by a motley crew of equally demented minds. Released 29 January, you can pre-order your copy now, here.
