Released through Black Shuck Books, Pareidolia is a new anthology of dark and surreal fiction, edited by James Everington and This is Horror alumnus Dan Howarth. Following on from the British Fantasy Award-nominated Imposter Syndrome, Everington and Howarth have assembled a roster of talented authors including Sarah Read, Tim Major and G. V. Anderson, among others to handle the subject matter of the title: Pareidolia, the sensation of seeing shapes or hearing voices which apparently are not really there. Coming July, you can pre-order your copy in Paperback or eBook format, here.
