Alt-Zombie's here!

The Nunsploitation story went well and will appear in the anthology that asked for it, hopefully later on this year (ebook first, then as a print edition), so more details as and when. I have to say, I’m really pleased with it, as I am about the following news.

Hersham Horror Books, we don’t do reprints only newly written works of horror fiction. This book may also be used as a weapon in the event of a zombie apocalypse.

Really pleased to see this, since it not only features my story “In Cars” but I also contributed the cover art.

In fact, I thought it might be of interest to follow the path of the artwork. After discussions with Pete, I came up with a ‘dead face’ concept and worked through several variations, which he liked but ultimately felt was just a little too creepy.

Coming up with some other ideas quickly, I found a picture of a bloody hand and that was the Eureka! moment. I re-created the picture with new elements (the test was a found photograph) and that’s what you see as the final result.
