News Round-up Week Ending 4 October 2019

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

Night CreepersFrom writer David Irons and Severed Press comes the new novel, Night Creepers

Following on from his novel Night Waves in the early part of 2019, writer David Irons returns with Night Creepers, a new novel of horror from Severed Press. When seven strangers are invited to attend the funeral and will reading of the affluent Gregory Blitzer, they soon find themselves trapped in the tiny remote church where the service takes place. Before long they end up opening the coffin, only to discover there is no body and in its place there is a crude tunnel to the catacombs below, where something lies in wait. You can pre-order your copy of Night Creepers, here. Check out the trailer, below.


Something from below

New from PS Publishing and writer & scholar of the weird, S. T. Joshi, comes Something From Below

In this new novella of cosmic horror, channelling Lovecraft, Hodgson and others while retaining his own compelling voice, S. T. Joshi creates a weird, yet poignant world for its protagonist, Allison Mannering. Having just returned to northeastern Pennsylvania from college, she finds her father has died in suspicious circumstances, while her mother seeks to avoid even discussing what has happened. Allison is forced to look into the mystery herself, uncovering horrors that date back a century or more. As ever with PS Publishing, Something From Below is available in a gloriously realised jacketed hardback edition (pictured) as well as a signed version, limited to just one hundred copies. Pre-order your copy here.

Lovecraft’s ‘Herbert West: Re-animator’ aimed at children.
