This is Horror chapbook launch event – 22nd June

Really pleased to announce that I’ll be appearing at a This is Horror event at Warwick University on 22nd June to launch their chapbook series. I’ll be there alongside Simon Bestwick and Joseph D’Lacy, and the evening will be hosted by the great Jasper Bark. The event is free, but spaces are limited. Email michael@thisishorror.co.uk for tickets.

I look forward to seeing you there. If Simon, Joseph, Jasper and I are even half as good as the poster, then we’re all in for a good night!

And don’t forget… JOE AND ME – my story and the first chapbook in the series – is released on 15 June. Click here to pre-order.

Joe and Me

I promised to tell you about two new projects this week: here’s the first.

Many of you will already know about This is Horror – an excellent website which, in its short existence, has developed a large following and a reputation for being a key resource for finding out about all things horror. The founders of the site have plenty of enthusiasm and ambition, and are about to branch out into a new venture: the This is Horror Premium Chapbook series. These chapbooks will be released every quarter and will showcase original stories from (in TiH’s words) “some of the very best names in the genre today”.

Joe and Me by David MoodyI’m honoured to have been asked to contribute a story, and I’m very pleased to announce that my piece – Joe and Me – will be the launch title.

I don’t want to say too much at the present time, I’ll just give you the salient facts: the chapbooks will be strictly limited to 500 copies, and Joe and Me will be launched in early June (with a launch event to take place in Warwick later in the month). Pricing, subscription and ordering details will be made available very shortly, but for now you can find out more by visiting this page over at www.thisishorror.co.uk. My story will be followed later this year by tales from Conrad Williams, Joseph D’Lacey, and a collaborative story from Gary McMahon and Simon Bestwick.

So what’s Joe and Me about? Well again, I won’t give too much away at this stage, I’ll just say that if you have even a passing interest in the AUTUMN series, you might want to check it out!
