News Round-up Week Ending 29 November 2019

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

TouchtheNightHard cover edition of Touch the Night, the new novel from Max Booth III and Cemetery Dance, available for pre-order now

From Max Booth III (Carnivorous Lunar Activities), comes Touch the Night, a mash up of Stranger Things and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre that the author himself describes as the most gruesome work he has ever put together. Something sinister’s hiding in the small town of Percy, Indiana, and twelve-year-old Joshua Washington and Alonzo Jones are about to find themselves up close and personal with it. After a harmless night of petty property damage leads to the unthinkable, the red and blue lights of a cop car are the last things these boys want to see. Especially a cop car driven by something not quite human. Limited to only 750 signed and numbered copies, the hard cover edition (final artwork tba) is available for pre-order now, here.

Horror for raicesNew Nightscape Press charitable anthology, Horror for RAICES, available for pre-order now

Featuring stories by authors such as Paul Tremblay (Growing Things), Livia Llewellyn (Furnace), Poppy Z. Brite (Are You Loathsome Tonight) and many more, Horror For RAICES is an emergency charitable anthology that was created as a way for horror authors to come together and take a stand against the xenophobic actions of ICE and the current US administration toward our neighbors. No children belong in cages. No children deserve to be taken from their families. Horror has a way of painting a picture of the culture and times in which it has been created. And often what it reflects is awful. Horror For RAICES does just that but it also reflects something beautiful in us all. Love. Hope. And resistance. Released on 25 December, pre-order your copy, here.

Elements of Horror Water

Released 3 December from Red Cape Publishing, Elements of Horror Book Four: Water

Featuring stories by P. J. Blakey-Novis, Theresa Jacobs and many more, Elements of Horror Book Four: Water is released on 3 December, from Red Cape Publishing. Completing the quartet of elements, and following on from books on Earth, Fire and Wind elements, these aquatic tales are sure to leave you shuddering. Pre-order your copy right now, here.
