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

New supernatural procedural novel, Ragged Alice, from multi-genre author Gareth L. Powell, out now through Tor.com
DCI Holly Craig grew up an orphan in the welsh town of Pontyrhudd. As soon as she was old enough she ran away to London, where she joined the police. Fifteen years later, she is assigned to her old hometown to deal with what seems to be a simple hit-and-run case. Things quickly turn far more complex, sinister and personal. Out now from Tor.com and written by one of the foremost sci-fi and space opera authors of the moment, Ragged Alice shows that Gareth L. Powell also has scares in his toolbox. You can order your copy of Ragged Alice, here.
