IFWG Publishing unveils its cover for a new ‘Imagine That’ Horror Anthology: DRACULA UNFANGED, by cover artist, Oscar winner Dave Elsey! Elsey shared Best Make-Up with industry legend, his pal, Rick Baker, on THE WOLFMAN, in 2011, and Elsey has serious Dracula cred with his amazing make-up and creature shop work (with wife, Lou) on the 2020 Gatiss-Moffat (SHERLOCK) re-invention of DRACULA.
Elsey provides a truly beautifully horrifying image of the immortal Count for a new anthology bristling with macabre fiction literary legends and Draculeana experts, in a collection based on a parallel universe concept by Christopher Sequeira (who devised SHERLOCK HOLMES AND DOCTOR WAS NOT for IFWG, and co-devised and edited, with Bryce Stevens and Steve Proposch, the four volume CTHULHU DEEP DOWN UNDER series and the sensational new release CAPED FEAR: SUPERHUMAN HORROR STORIES).
Editor Sequeira and Dave Elsey go way back, as they created an acclaimed graphic novel series DARK DETECTIVE SHERLOCK HOLMES – an authentic Hammer-esque take on the great detective, with artist friend Philip Cornell some years ago.
Special mention should be given to Catherine Archer-Wills, who is DRACULA UNFANGED’s cover designer.
This new book sees names like DACRE STOKER (great-nephew of BRAM STOKER) & LEVERETT BUTTS, RAMSEY CAMPBELL, NANCY HOLDER, JIM KRUEGER, CHRISTOPHER FOWLER, RON FORTIER, LEE MURRAY, WILL MURRAY, JASON FRANKS, and others, including – in a nice closing of a circle – PHILIP CORNELL teaming with JACQUELINE SEQUEIRA to write one particular tale in the volume that will please fans of Dracula, as much as it will those of classic detective fiction. The volume also includes black and white frontispiece and end piece art by occultist VICKY ADAMS and a foreword by ANNOTATED DRACULA author, LESLIE S. KLINGER.
If you like horror, Dracula, or multiverse stories, you can’t go wrong with this volume!
