Here’s a small selection of the horror and genre news that caught our eye during the last week …
From Tim Meyer (Sharkwater Beach) comes Kill Hill Carnage, set twenty five years after a bloody massacre at a summer camp, hitman Frank Harmon is sent into a supposedly operational, but mysterious factory on the site of the original bloodbath. While his kill list is short, the night is long and things are soon taking turns that Frank could never have expected. In a race against time to save not only the area, but the world, Kill Hill Carnage sounds like the kind of high-adrenaline horror that will keep readers turning the pages until the end. Coming 15 July, from Sinister Grin Press, you can pre-order your copy now, here.
