Occult Detective Quarterly Issue 3 is out now
John Linwood Grant's rather splendid Occult Detective Quarterly returns with the third issue in what hopefully will be a long running series of issues.
With even more thrill-packed pages than last issue, OCCULT DETECTIVE QUARTERLY returns to offer another wild ride of strange crimes, where hardened investigators and supernatural sleuths dare the darkness to seek out the truth. New tales of gritty detective work and the unnatural cross the globe and the timelines. A Seventies PI faces death on the NY subway; a gifted young woman investigates murder in Victorian England, and the authorities send a man to help troops in Nicaragua who face unknown terrors. Pulp noir meets the worlds of H P Lovecraft, and an unusual detective faces aquatic perils in the Bay of Bengal. Sherlock Holmes himself makes an appearance, and much more. Stories from Brian M Sammons, Alice Loweecy, Edward M Erdelac, Willie Meikle and six other talented modern writers. Plus extensive reviews, non-fiction articles on Robert E Howard’s detective characters, Dickens and Conan Doyle, and great commissioned art.
william Meikle has an infestation
One of Ginger Nuts of Horror's favourite authors has a brand new book out, and it sounds like a classic Meikletastic romp.
It was supposed to be a simple mission. A suspected Russian spy boat is in trouble in Canadian waters. Investigate and report are the orders.
But when Captain John Banks and his squad arrive, it is to find an empty vessel, and a scene of bloody mayhem.
Soon they are in a fight for their lives, for there are things in the icy seas off Baffin Island, scuttling, hungry things with a taste for human flesh.
They are swarming.
And they are growing.
Stephen King's The Outsider coming June 5th 2018
On 5 June 2018, Hodder will publish an exciting new novel from Stephen King. The Outsider is a compelling and chilling suspense novel which will delight readers of King’s bestselling Hodges trilogy.
Following the phenomenal success of his Bill Hodges series, Mr Mercedes, Finders Keepersand End of Watch, all Number 1 bestsellers, Stephen King has written an unputdownable crime thriller with a unique twist.
When an eleven-year-old boy is found murdered, forensic evidence and reliable eyewitnesses undeniably point to the town's popular Little League coach. But the jailed suspect, arrested in a public spectacle, has an alibi, and further research convinces Detective Ralph Anderson that the coach was indeed out of town. So how can he have been in two places at the same time?
‘King works his customary storytelling magic, unspooling the plot threads almost as quickly as readers can turn the pages’ – Daily Mail on End of Watch
