Parallel Universe places ads in the horrorzine, Fear magazine, Black Static and FantasyCon Programme

Advert in the horrorzine
Parallel Universe Publications has embarked on an advertising campaign to raise its profile. The first of these was in the horrorzine for Adrian Cole's Tough Guys.

We have now arranged for an ad to go in the inaugural issue of the revived magazine Fear, edited by John Gilbert. This will be followed by a half-page ad in Black Static (issue #54).

Into the Dark by Andrew Jennings - free kindle download Sunday 10th July

For one day only the kindle version of Andrew Jennings' horror novel Into the Dark will be free.

All we would ask is that if you do download it to write a honest review afterwards, however brief.

In the meantime, enjoy!

Tough Guys by Adrian Cole - copies arrive by courier

Our copies of Tough Guys by Adrian Cole arrived by courier yesterday, including extra copies ordered for the launch at Fantasycon in Scarborough later this year. Really pleased with the brilliant Jim Pitts wraparound cover. The book includes an in-depth introduction by David A. Sutton.

Fear Magazine Reborn

It's great to see one of the very best horror magazines ever published in Britain being revived. Which is exactly what is happening this September with the relaunch of Fear, still edited by John Gilbert.

Here is a link to the magazine's website: Fear.

His Pale Blue Eyes - Narrated on Tales to Terrify

I was very pleased to read the following comment on the Tales to Terrify site for the narration of my offbeat zombie tale, His Pale Blue Eyes, which was beautifully narated by Antoinette Bergin:

Excellent stuff. Loved Suicide Chef, great premise. Nice to hear one of my favourite Riley stories “His Pale Blue Eyes” narrated. Love the slow burning build up.

Boat Trip - my Lovecraftian horror story accepted for the Third Spectral Book of Horror Stories

I'm very pleased to announce that my Lovecraftian horror story, Boat Trip, has been accepted for the Third Spectral Book of Horror Stories by its editor Joseph Rubas. I was advised to submit a story there by my friend Adrian Cole, who had already had a story accepted himself. I must admit to being pleased to share space with him in this book!
