Hinnom 010Gehenna and Hinnom books announce kickstarter running throughout February

Gehenna and Hinnom books, headed up by C. P. Dunphey, have cemented themselves as one of the major fixtures in the cosmic horror and weird fiction markets recently, with their popular Hinnom magazine and various anthologies, including The Year’s Best Body Horror. In 2018, they broadened their horizons to a number of new book series, including chapbooks, novellas and more besides. Now, at the beginning of 2019, they have decided to put together a Kickstarter campaign to push themselves on to the next level. Stated aims include expanding their catalogue and increasing author pay rates towards pro-level. The Kickstarter has been live for just a few days and has already hit the first funding target, but there are plenty of other stretch goals which look very interesting. You can find all the information about the kickstarter and pledge your support here.
