Cover Reveal: The Harbinger of Death by Paula Boer

IFWG is excited to reveal the cover of Paula Boer’s third instalment in her The Equinora Chronicles, The Harbinger of Death. The cover and design work was by one of IFWG’s regular artists, Steve Santiago (who did all three).

When rotfrogs poison the wetlands in Westlands, Prism, the youngest unicorn, is sent by Aureana, Equinora’s goddess, to overcome the invasion. But despite her golden wings, Prism is unable to fly due to her fear of heights. She makes the long treacherous journey across the mountains on foot, accompanied by Delsin, a spirit man and Rocky, a mortal horse. Prism falls in love with Rocky, but is tormented due to her desire for an immortal soulmate.  

By the time they arrive in Westlands, a blight has spread to all living things. When Prism confronts her grandsire, the guardian of the territory, a battle ensues between the older and younger generations of unicorns, causing devastating fire and floods. Prism must warn all the people and animals of the land to seek safety, at the same time as finding a cure for the plague. However, unless she can master her fear, she won’t be able to save the whole of Equinora from becoming a desolate wasteland.

The Harbinger of Death will be released in July 2022.

Cover Reveal: Following the Braid by Cary J Lenehan

IFWG Publishing is very pleased to reveal the cover for Cary J Lenehan’s sixth instalment in his epic 8-part fantasy Warriors of Vhast series, Following the Braid. Artwork and design by UK-based Catherine Archer-Wills – we think this is one of her best.

“Again we have chosen a non-combative scene for the cover,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG, “as Lenehan’s work is a triumph of world-building and this, like book 5’s cover, adds richness to the presentation of his narrative tableaux. The quality of Archer-Wills’ work is outstanding as usual.”

Here is the artwork for the full wrap – we are impressed!

Following the Braid will be published world-wide on the 2nd May 2022.

COVER REVEAL: DRACULA UNFANGED gets cover by the 2020 BBC DRACULA’s, and THE WOLFMAN’s 2011 Oscar-winning Make-Up Artist, Dave Elsey!

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!
