New Acquisitions: Midnight Masquerade & Black Days and Bloody Nights by Greg Chapman

IFWG Publishing Australia is proud to announce two new dual publications from Bram Stoker Award and Australian Shadows Award nominated author and artist, Greg Chapman, for 2024.

MIDNIGHT MASQUERADE and BLACK DAYS AND BLOODY NIGHTS will collect brand new fiction alongside Chapman’s acclaimed novellas, ‘The Last Night of October’, ‘The Followers’, ‘Vaudeville’ and ‘Torment’.

Of the dual works Chapman said: “Midnight Masquerade and Black Days and Bloody Nights will feature new stories inspired by my novellas, so expect more new terrifying tales of Halloween, creature features, post-apocalyptic nightmares, gothic grotesqueries and otherworldly horrors.”

IFWG Publishing Managing Director Gerry Huntman added, “Chapman is a very well known writer and artist in Australia, but also has built a significant reputation in other regions, particularly in North America. It was a no-brainer for us to acquire his impressive novellas, and exciting to publish his original short fiction.”

Midnight Masquerade is scheduled for release in the third quarter of 2024 with Back Days and Bloody Nights to follow in the fourth quarter of 2024.

Two-time international Bram Stoker Award-nominee®*, Greg Chapman is a horror author and artist based in Queensland, Australia.
