Bad Moon Books Release D’Lacey Fiction

15 12 2011

Snake Eyes by Joseph D'LaceyBad Moon Books have this week announced a brand new release from the eco-horror overlord Joseph D’Lacey. Snake Eyes will be launched in the New Year and is available for pre-order now.

Snake Eyes is a collection of two brand new novellas from the author of Meat. The first of these two stories is called A Trespasser in Long Lofting and involves an isolated, starving community that sees something enormous and red crash land. The villagers are torn – is it possible to eat what has landed or is it a vile demon that must be destroyed? More to the point what are their other options?

The second novella is A Man of Will and Experience and features Robert Johnson, an ordinary man who wakes up with a tube in his head, although apparently he is the only one that is aware of this! His world begins to unravel in a paranoid delusion as he battles with unseen forces for control of his life.

D’Lacey has not released a book for over two years so this announcement is brilliant news for fans of his quirky take on sci-fi, horror and everything in-between. Be sure to check Read Horror soon for more special Joseph D’Lacey news.

Is there a racist in your neighbourhood?

14 12 2011

Gunshot blood suicideI’ll admit, watching Emma West’s recent notorious rant on the Croydon tram took me back to an episode in my life that had some of the same trappings, albeit a decidedly different end result. Come back with me, dear reader, to the summer of 1984 in suburban Pennsylvania, USA. Not to date myself, but I was in my 11th year and just passing time, not all that enamoured with my surroundings. See, I was fortunate enough to grow up outside the big city maelstrom into which I’d eventually fling myself with salacious abandon, but unfortunate enough to be surrounded by – how can I put it delicately?

The Nightmare Within by Glen R KrischWhat first attracted you to horror writing?

From Flu to Fever

8 12 2011

Wayne SimmonsGood news continues to come in for Wayne Simmons fans, in addition to the special edition books announced last week; we now have exciting news about brand new releases from the zombie master.

Wayne has announced that Fever, the follow up to his excellent tome Flu, will be available in February 2012 and a full launch is expected to take place at Cardiff Comic Expo 2012.

Fellow zombie scribe David Moody has provided the cover blurb for Fever and said “Fever wears its reanimated heart proudly on its sleeve. Simmons builds on the nightmare world he created in Flu and manages to make it even more horrific and diseased. A sequel which surpasses the original.”

In addition, Wayne has announced that Doll Parts, a book on hold since 2009 and the long-awaited sequel to Drop Dead Gorgeous, will be released in March 2012.

If that isn’t enough for Wayne’s fans, he is also pleased to announce that Morpheus Tales have published his story from the Flu world, Mary’s Boy Child in their special Christmas issue which is available to download for free now.
