The Unspoken

In a change to the scheduled programming, instead of promoting publications from Spectral, we would like to point you in the direction of a charity anthology called The Unspoken. It’s edited by Willie Meikle and has been published by Karoshi Books. In case you’re wondering, it’s an anti-cancer anthology, with proceeds going to cancer research charities. Why are we telling you about this?  Simply because it is full of some of the best writers around, plus Simon Marshall-Jones, the editor of Spectral, has provided the cover painting (image above) – just take a look at this:

“Cancer is a monster. It hides, it lurks, and it pounces when you think it’s down and defeated. In these 17 stories, established horror writers take the attack to the beast, fighting it the only way they know how.
