The Sinister Horror company is proud to announce that that they are publishing an exclusive novel by Adam Millard, The Bad Game is due to be release on Monday 2nd May 2016. Joint founder of The Sinister Horror Company, Daniel Marc Chant, had this to say:
“We’re absolutely thrilled to be able to work with Adam. As huge fans of him and his work when the opportunity presented itself to put out one of his books we just couldn’t say no. His pitch was a classic horror in the style of Shaun Hutson and James Herbert but with a distinct British twist. Adam’s flawlessly demonstrated an incredible range through his body of work and he’s once again outdone himself with The Bad Game.”
The book is available for pre-order now at Amazon UK, and Amazon US.
On writing the novel, Adam says
“Growing up, I was enamoured with videogames, spending many hours in the company of Italian plumbers—like your mom—supersonic blue hedgehogs, and angry barrel-tossing gorillas. Seaside amusement arcades, with their two-penny-pushers and clearly-rigged claw machines, always fascinated me, and still do. The Bad Game is very loosely based upon the mysterious arcade cabinet known as Polybius which briefly and mysteriously took up residence in Portland, Oregon, in 1981. Some say it never existed at all, while others believe it was a secret program created by the CIA in order to brainwash the unsuspecting masses. I wondered what would happen if such a machine turned up in a flourishing British seaside resort, what might happen if the children became adversely affected by its surreal gameplay and hypnotic graphics. Then I just wrote the damn thing, and I hope people have as much fun with it as I did.”
