Halloween Horror Event!

This one is mainly aimed at those in the UK who are looking for somewhere different to go to on Halloween night – an event featuring three of the best writers working within the horror genre in Britain today, including a Spectral author! Eack of the guests will be doing a reading, plus discussing their work in detail – they are:

Gary McMahon – author of What They Hear in the Dark, as well as Rain Dogs, Pretty Little Dead Things, Dead Bad Things and the Concrete Grove Trilogy.

Adam Nevill –¬†author of the critically acclaimed novels Apartment 16 and The Ritual.

It’ll be hosted by Michael Wilson of Read Horror webzine and takes place at the Warwick Arts Centre in Coventry in the UK on Monday evening, starting at 7.15 – for more information and tickets, go here.

Competition news

Just giving you guys advance warning that in the very near future Read Horror webzine will be running a Spectral Press competition – Michael Wilson (High Priest of Read Horror, Chief Interrogator of Authors and Wrangler of Zombies [no doubt]) and I are working out the details at the moment, but I can guarantee you that there will be some nice prizes on offer AND that it’ll be an interesting competition. I’ll make a proper announcement as soon as we’ve got something to tell you!

Keep watching this space, as the well-worn clich√© goes…. =D

Read Horror review and something a little different…

Just a quick little blog-post this morning:

First, Michael Wilson over at Read Horror webzine gave Gary McMahon’s What They Hear in the Dark a short review, giving it a thumbs up. Michael will also be reviewing the other Gary’s Abolisher of Roses at some point in the near future – in the meantime, here’s what he said about Mr. McMahon’s chapbook.

Antipodean writer Angela Slatter, of Sourdough & Other Stories (Tartarus Press) and The Girl with no Hands (Ticonderoga) fame (both of which I have reviewed), asked me to participate in one of her fun little ‘Drive-by Interviews’, which she published today. You can see what I said by clicking here.

Don’t forget, too, that copies of Cate Gardner’s Nowhere Hall are now available on pre-order, but I urge you to get your order in quickly as there are only FIVE copies left (15th June 2011)…. =)
