Preorder Offer: Cut to Care: A Collection of Little Hurts by Aaron Dries

THIS OFFER HAS NOW EXPIRED

Cut to Care: A Collection of Little Hurts will be released in Australian, New Zealand and UK on the 9th May 2022 (North America to be confirmed, probably June 2022). To celebrate this upcoming dark fiction collection by Aaron Dries, we are very happy to make the following preorder offer:

For AU$25.00 we send you a trade paperback of Cut to Care, including freight. It will ship from the UK and you will receive it on, or just after 9 May 2022 (shipping is still not as predictable as we like it). This offer is for all addresses in Australia, UK, New Zealand, USA and Canada. US and Canadian readers will have the benefit of receiving the book at least a month before release.

An agency that sends social workers into the homes of grieving families to impersonate dead loved ones…

The kind old woman who saved a teenager’s life but now finds herself haunted by the weight of a cheated suicide…

And the daughter of a candlestick maker as she tries to survive a painful existence after her father’s execution for making human chandeliers of drunken cowboys…

These stories and more—ranging from supernatural to the frighteningly domestic, Splatterpunk to the weird and cosmic—stain the pages of Cut to Care. They serve as a timely reminder of the cost of caring too much. Or not caring enough. Of how we mask cruelties behind kindness. And of our willingness to rip ourselves apart in the hope of satisfying a world that doesn’t always care for you back.

Featuring an exclusive introduction by Mick Garris, creator of MASTERS OF HORROR and director of Stephen King’s THE STAND, this unforgettable collection truly cuts deep.

This offer will end 20 April 2022.

New Release: The Guardians of St. Giles middle grade series by Jeffery E Doherty

IFWG is very pleased to announce the release of the 2nd edition of the first two books of Jeffery E Doherty’s middle grade series, The Guardians of St. Giles (Olivia Stone and the Trouble With Trixies and Olivia Stone and the Dread of the Dreamers) as well as a brand new title in the series, Olivia Stone and the Call of the Carnival.

“Middle Grade (young teen) fiction is a very important element of IFWG’s catalogue,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG, “and Doherty’s Guardians of St. Giles series is a worthy addition. We believe that these titles will be a hit…after all, how could a teenager resist the enticing combination of adventure and gothic horror?”

The series is now released in Australian, New Zealand and UK/Europe, and will be available in the USA and Canada on 1 June 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!
