News Round-up Week Ending 30 August 2019

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

Cricket huntersNew from author Jeremy Hepler and Silver Shamrock Publishers comes Cricket Hunters, coming 1 September

Celia (Garcia) Lundy was fifteen in the fall of 1998 when Abby Powell, one of her five friends who called themselves the Cricket Hunters, disappeared without a trace. Cops scoured the central Texas town of Oak Mott searching for Abby. Eventually, the case went cold, and the passage of time buried the truth of Abby Powell’s fate. Fifteen years later, as the anniversary of Abby’s disappearance approaches, Cel’s life is upended when her husband Parker, also once a Cricket Hunter, goes missing. Cricket Hunters is the new novel from Bram Stoker Award-nominated author Jeremy Hepler and is available 1 September. You can pre-order your copy here.


OnebyOneOne by One, the new release from author D. W. Gillespie, coming 26 September from Flame Tree Press

Billed as a haunted house story with a difference, One by One is the chilling new novel by D. W. Gillespie (Still Dark), released through Flame Tree Press’ Fiction without frontiers imprint. The book finds the Easton family, newly settled in their latest fixer-upper, a house they got at a steal of a price. When daughter, Alice, starts exploring the house and stumbles across a stick-figure portrait of a family just like hers under the wallpaper, she is frightened. Fear turns to terror when members of the family begin to disappear and the stick-figures are scrawled over with thick, black ‘X’ symbols. One by One is available for pre-order right now, here.


TheHollowsNew novel, The Hollows, by author Barry Napier, available now

New from Barry Napier (The Cooper M. Reid Crime Series) comes The Hollows. One hundred years ago, a tragic event took place in the forests of Otter Brook. Houses were burned, people were killed, and an unspeakable curse was loosed on the small town. That curse still exists, defining and haunting numerous families. The fathers of these affected families must disregard their hearts and heritage, forced to commit dark and brutal acts. Currently a kindle-only release, The Hollows was released on 22 August and you can get your copy now, here.
