New novel by Bram Stoker Award winner Alessandro Manzetti, Naraka, out now

Translated by Daniele Bonfanti, the new novel by Bram Stoker Award winning author Alessandro Manzetti, Naraka, is available now from Independent Legions Publishing. A work of sci-fi horror, Nakara is the story of a prison on the moon, after a radiation-laden asteroid has collided with earth and rendered almost all agriculture toxic. A strategy rises from the flames, to slice and dice the prisoners, before packing them into cans to feed those remaining on earth. The novel has already received great acclaim from a number of sources and you can get your copy right here.

Capcom confirms Resident Evil 7: Biohazard for Nintendo Switch

This past Monday, Capcom confirmed that Resident Evil 7 will be finding its way to Nintendo’s hybrid console, the Switch. However, perhaps due to the scale of the game, it will be available online only, either to rent or to buy. All content from the Xbox One and PS4 versions will be available, as will support for the Switch’s unique joycon controller. Life for Switch owners is about to get a lot scarier. The release date for the Europe and US markets has yet to be announced.
