13 Haunted Houses, coming March 2022 from editors Curtis M. Lawson and Joe Morey, and Weird House Press
Haunted Houses have intrigued and terrified the human mind for millennia.

Weird House Press has gathered 13 of the finest voices in modern horror to construct and breathe unlife into haunted houses of their own. In these pages you will find cliffside mansions brimming with death, Lighthouses that serve as beacons of madness, and cursed architecture with a mind of its own.

Available to pre-order now as a limited edition hardcover, signed by the editors, you can ensure you get your copy here.
Out now from writers and poets Cindy O’Quinn and Stephanie Ellis, Foundlings, a collection of found poetry
Found poetry is an act of creation in its own right. By taking words already in existence in the works of others, something completely new can be created.
This collection was created in tribute to renowned dark poets, Linda D. Addison and Alessandro Manzetti. In all instances, O’Quinn and Ellis have indicated those poems from which they carved our own. Available now in eBook, with a paperback to follow, you can get your copy here.
