Wilburn: The Case for D. Alexander Ward

We wanted to share the comments made recently about one of our Shadows Over Main Street editors, which were posted by writer/blogger Jay Wilburn.

The blog post, titled “The Case for D. Alexander Ward,” can be accessed by clicking here.

We couldn’t agree more that our two Shadows editors, Messrs. Ward and Murano, have “broke[n] new ground with the quality and scope of their projects.”

Rue Morgue Reviews Blue Eel

The August 2016 issue of print horror magazine Rue Morgue (Issue #169) has just hit newsstands, and it has a review of Blue Eel!

Here’s an excerpt:

“Lorne Dixon’s Blue Eel is an engaging and offbeat mixture of police procedural, eldritch mysticism and monster story wrapped up in a tale of redemption.”

Sounds great to us!

Remember, Blue Eel is available in hardcover, paperback and Kindle editions.

The Horror Library will rise again!

Attention horror fans of all ages:

Cutting Block Books is excited to announce that we have re-acquired all rights to the Bram Stoker Award® nominated Horror Library anthology!

Like a hockey-masked psychopath in a horror film, the Library refuses to stay down.  We are making plans to continue the series, from Volume 6 and beyond, with a brand-new editor and renewed excitement for the horror anthology that has been helping to introduce new, talented writers to horror fans since 2006.

We’re still in the earliest phases of planning for the continuation of the series, so don’t expect a new volume until late 2017, at the earliest — but watch this space, and we’ll update you as things progress.

The Library lives!  Long live the Library!
