If you’ve been following me here, you are also probably aware that one of my main visions for Bloodshot Books is to seek out and reprint any novels of horror that are no longer in print, or never received the exposure they deserved stateside.
I’ve already announced that the first book in our Second Sight line will be THE AWAKENING by Brett McBean, which is due out mid-August. I’m not just twiddling my thumbs here, though. In the past couple of months, I have been actively identifying other authors who I feel deserve to be more widely known by the current generation of horror fans.
Thus, I’m thoroughly ecstatic to announce that I have cajoled, wheedled, and somehow convinced Stephen Laws to sign on with us. Sometime in the next 6-8 months, we will be reprinting the 25th Anniversary edition of his novel THE FRIGHTENERS, a novel which Steve describes as “Get Carter crossed with The Exorcist”.
I first read this great book in 2004, and I’m extremely proud that we will be bringing it back, this time with an extra chapter that was left out of the original.
Soon you will ask yourself the question “How much do you hate?”
