Indie Bookshelf Releases 02/09/2024
Got a book to launch, an event to promote, a kickstarter or seeking extra work/support as a result of being hit economically by life in general?
Get in touch and we’ll promote you here. The post is prepared each Thursday for publication on Friday. Contact us via Horror Tree’s contact address or connect via Twitter or Facebook.
Click on the book covers for more information. Remember to scroll down to the bottom of the page – there’s all sorts lurking in the deep.
Before you scroll down through the books however, please could you consider checking out the ‘Creatives in Crisis’ section. This has been added to help those who need additional support at this time. Please note I keep these up as long as they’re either running or have hit their targets. The two still showing, Claire Fitzpatrick and Bill Spangler continue to need support. Thank you!
From the gofundme page (but please scroll down to see additional plea from Claire’s cousin who is helping via different route as gofundme takes a percentage):
Bill still needs help to reach his target! I’ve checked the amount raised and it has begun to move again – so close – but still any help from anyone appreciated!- Steph, 20/12/2023
‘Bill and Joyce Spangler managed to avoid being hit by the pieces of the Chinese booster rocket that fell to Earth in late 2022. So far, though, that’s all they’ve managed to avoid.
This is a charity anthology; all proceeds will be donated to the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund and ANERA (American Near East Refugee Aid).
Over 30 authors in the horror community donated stories to help the civilians of Palestine. Among the stories are:
— codependent necromancers
— a spy discovers a supernatural weapon that might turn the tide of the war
— a Girl Scout troop camping trip goes horribly wrong when dinosaurs show up
— a child’s drawings of their family are not quite what they seem
— a group of men fighting a forest fire are about to have a Very Bad Day
— a man is constantly followed by a terrifying shadow figure he calls the Other
— a young woman’s new job at the mall isn’t nearly as mundane as she anticipated
Discover some new favorite tales in this collection!
Cover art by Winter Holmes.
‘Exploring both the natural and the supernatural, the alien and the ghostly, the chilling and the horrific, these fourteen diversions first root themselves in the mundanity of everyday life before extending their branches into the very things and ideas that terrify us all. In At Home with the Horrors, Scott brings the nightmares to the one place where we should all feel the safest, and when it comes to horror, he proves that grief, loss, and guilt can be just as terrifying as ghosts and goblins.’
“Sammy Scott cements his status as a rising voice in horror fiction, and an author to watch—and to fear—in the genre.” — Ronald Malfi, bestselling author of Come with Me
Whilst Sammy’s ‘gofundme‘ is no longer receiving donations, please continue to support him by buying his work!
Note: These shelves are very much ‘reminders’ of the magazines that are out there, so the covers might not change too often! Please let me know if there are magazines, journals, periodicals we are not aware of.
