Here’s a small selection of the horror and genre news that caught our eye during the last week …
Nominated for a Bram Stoker award, Andy Davidson’s debut novel, In the Valley of the Sun was a huge hit when it was released in 2017. Reclaiming the vampire and planting it in a southern setting, in a book that was literary, full of heart, but still terrifying, the novel was highly acclaimed. This week, the novel has been reissued in this paperback edition, with stunning artwork and is available from Skyhorse press now. Get hold of your copy, ahead of Andy’s next novel, rumoured to be arriving this year. You can buy In the Valley of the Sun here.
