Here’s a small selection of the horror and genre news that caught our eye during the last week …
This last week saw Grey Matter Press announce two new releases from Alan Baxter, coming in 2018. The first, Manifest Recall, is a southern gothic novella that delves into the supernatural. The second is a full length novel of urban horror, Devouring Dark, and is vastly expanded from his short story ‘Shadows of the Lonely Dead.’ Alan Baxter has spoken about his excitement at the deal and, while there are no firm release dates as yet, rest assured that This is Horror will bring you further news of these releases when we have it.
Crystal Lake Publishing have embarked on a new endeavour, publishing free eBooks. In some cases, these are full works from their back catalogue, while in others, they are individually selected stories from new and recent short story collections by their headline authors. Preview stories come from the acclaimed recent Victorian supernatural collection by William Meikle, The Ghost Club, as well as stories selected from the recent collections by Darren Speegle and Gene O’Neil. These are totally free and all the information to download them for whatever platform you use can be found here.
