PS Publishing have pulled together a collection of the work of the late R. Chetwynd-Hayes, to mark one hundred years since the author’s birth. During the 70s and 80s, Chetwynd-Hayes was one of the most important British horror writers and editors. To honour his legacy, PS Publishing have pulled together this centenary collection, edited by Stephen Jones. The collection contains sixteen stories, including one rare reprint novella and two stories which have never before been reprinted. As well as that, there are rare photos, some provided by his family and an in-depth interview with the author. Available in three different deluxe formats and launching at Glasgow’s Fantasycon 2019 in October, you can pre-order your copy here.
Featuring an introduction by Paul Tremblay (The Cabin at the End of the World), and put together by Adam McLaughlin and Kevin Watkins of Lunchbox Press, Graveyard Slaughter is a horror comic book anthology that takes its inspiration from the horror section of a classic 80s VHS video rental store. Featuring writers and artists who have previously worked on such renowned comics as Bone Parish, Ghost Rider, Vampirella and many more, this anthology will feature classic 80s slasher elements, horror arcade games and other themes to transport you right back to the 80s heyday of horror cinema. There are many amazing perks still available, you can stake your claim for them, and get all the info on the project, here.
Set in Shreeve, a UK town known only for containing the nation’s biggest landfill, Garbage Man features Aggie, a wannabe model who makes a macabre pact with Mason Brand, a former photographer. When something begins to stir beneath the ground, that agreement may be the only thing that can save Aggie and help her escape the town. This third edition of Garbage Man is released ten years after the original release. Featuring an introduction by David Moody (One of Us Will Be Dead by Morning) and a foreword by the author himself, this is a book that fans of D’Lacey’s work will be wanting to get their hands on. You can pick up your copy, released last week on 28 May, here.
