Inside The Shadow Booth (Press Release)

Greetings from the Valley of Hinnom,

Our good friend Dan Coxon is bringing forth an anthology for the ages. We encourage you all to support them by any means possible, and make sure to check out the Kickstarter. We plan on having an interview with Dan, concerning this project and what his vision is for the Shadow Booth.

When Eliot first spies the booth at the end of the pier, he wonders what it is. The canvas is faded, the striped pattern barely visible beneath years of dirt. The wooden boards are stained and bare. It’s the crude, handwritten sign that draws him closer, makes him reach out to pull the curtain aside. Enter the Shadow Booth, it says, and you will never be the same again.

The Shadow Booth is a new journal of weird and eerie fiction, edited by Dan Coxon (Winner: Best Anthology – Saboteur Awards 2016) and published as a mass market paperback. Drawing its inspiration from the likes of Thomas Ligotti and Robert Aickman, The Shadow Booth explores that dark, murky territory between mainstream horror and literary fiction. The journal is crowdfunding on Kickstarter from 26 September 2017.

Featuring stories by: Paul Tremblay, Malcolm Devlin, Richard Thomas, Stephen Hargadon, Annie Neugebauer, Richard V. Hirst, Sarah Read, Timothy J. Jarvis, Gary Budden, David Hartley, Dan Carpenter and Joseph Sale.

Interview opportunities: Many of the authors are available for interview. Please contact anthology editor to check availability.

Discussion topics:

  • Why are so many literary authors turning to the weird and the eerie for inspiration?
  • Is horror starting to enter the mainstream again?
  • Part of a history of weird/eerie short stories that extends from Poe and Lovecraft through Ligotti to the present day.
