Pandemic: Horrors Written In Lockdown
Matt Shaw - 2020
As an author, my life didn’t really change too much as I tend to stay home most of the time anyway. Of course there were changes when I did go outside (such as queuing up to get into stores, social distancing and whatnot but that was about it, for me). I guess I was one of the lucky ones as people lost friends and loved-ones to the virus, as well as jobs.As I write this, we are indeed still locked down. More and more people are ignoring the rules in the UK though and deaths are on the up so God only knows when the world will return to what we once knew before all of this crap.Still… One benefit, it has given me some ideas for some more horror stories centred around the global pandemic and here, in this collection, I present them to you.Stay safe, kiddies.Collected herePart OneA Taste Of Things To Come - A Series of DrabblesPart TwoGreta - a short storyThe House Guests - a short storyDeath Rattle - a short storyThe Morgues Were Full - a short storyHappy Anniversary - a short storyPart ThreeThe Lockdown Killer - a novella

Forbidden Surgeries of the Hideous Dr. Divinus
S. Craig Zahler - 2021
After the release of three startling, award-winning movies that have played around the world and been added to the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, S. Craig Zahler wanted to return to his first artistic passion―illustration.With tools that he had developed as a director, screenwriter, cinematographer, novelist, and songwriter, he committed himself to writing, drawing, inking, and lettering his graphic novel debut, a full-length work of noir horror entitled, Forbidden Surgeries of the Hideous Dr. Divinus.Here’s the setup…Homeless people are disappearing in New Bastion, and occasionally, a dismantled corpse turns up in a dumpster. These crimes are left alone, until the day a comatose woman named Lillian Driscoll is kidnapped from the hospital. Her brothers―a grumpy detective named Leo and a slick mobster named Tommy―seek answers that lead them to darkness, arcane medicine, and pain.Fans of Bone Tomahawk (recently named best film of the decade by Conan O’Brien) will enjoy Zahler’s return to the supernatural, and the idiosyncratic, tough guy dialogue found in his crime pictures Dragged Across Concrete and Brawl in Cell Block 99 (both of which premiered at the Venice Film Festival) is also present in this starkly rendered, black-and-white graphic novel, a stylistic confluence of pre-code horror, vintage comic strip, and modern indie art styles.
