Great British Horror and shady hotel visits

Some news for you at long last! I’m pleased to announce I’ll have two new shorts available later this year. First up, I’ll have a story in Great British Horror 1: Green and Pleasant Land – a collection of eleven new stories of small town, rural and folk horror by authors including Jasper Bark, Ray Cluley, Adam Millard and Rich Hawkins. The book will be released as a special edition, signed hardback in late 2016, and is available to pre-order now from http://blackshuckbooks.co.uk/green-and-pleasant-land

No doubt some of you will have heard of Matt Shaw. Matt’s had quite an impact on the UK horror scene over the last couple of years, and he recently asked me to get involved in his new project, The Devil’s Guests. Matt’s invited a number of horror authors to each create a character and write a story getting them to a specific location where Matt will… I can’t say what Matt will be doing to them, but given that he’s the author of books including Sick B*stards and Rotting Dead F*cks, you know it’s not going to be pleasant! More news as I get it.

The Monster’s Corner

It’s a way off, but I’m really pleased to announce that BIG MAN – a brand new short story – will appear in this fascinating anthology of stories told from the monster’s perspective, coming in October from St Martin’s Press and editor Christopher Golden. Other authors include Jonathan Maberry, Tom Piccirilli, Jeff Strand and many more. More details to follow.
