Hot on the heels of the release of Clive Barker’s The Scarlet Gospels last month, Wicked Horror is excited to bring fans news of the release of a short story collection called Midian Unmade, edited by Joseph Nassise and Del Howison. The release date is July 28, 2015. The stories are based on and inspired by the cult classic film Nightbreed, which was written and directed by Barker, adapted from his novel Cabal.
And Wicked Horror is running an exclusive giveaway, in partnership with publisher Tor Books, where FIVE lucky readers will receive an advanced copy of the book, each signed by editor Del Howison!
Here is more information on the collection, from a press release by Tor Books:
“Midian Unmade tells the stories of the Nightbreed after the fall of their city, Midian. Driven from their homes, their friends and family members slain before their eyes, the monsters become a mostly-hidden diaspora. Some are hunted; others, hunters. Some seek refuge. Others want revenge.
Contributors include: Karl Alexander, author of the classic novel Time After Time; actor, writer, and director Amber Benson (Tara Maclay on Buffy the Vampire Slayer); New York Times bestselling author Nancy Holder; Hugo and John W. Campbell Award winner Seanan McGuire; Bram Stoker Award winner Weston Ochse; David J. Schow, winner of the World Fantasy Award and writer of the screenplay for The Crow; New York Times bestselling writer Stephen Woodworth; and many more—23 stories in all. With an introduction by Clive Barker, this is an outstanding collection of original horror short stories in a dazzling variety of styles.“
