On 1st October 2017 we published The Corona Book of Horror Stories, a collection of some of the best new horror writing, comprising sixteen short stories. Therein you will find the products of dark imaginations, certainly; and something to scare you, revolt you or unnerve you, probably - it depends on how jaded and degenerate a soul you are. What we can promise you is a wealth of new writing talent with a variety of different takes on what can constitute horror. There's the tale of the breakfast that is life-changing (and not in a good way), the story of the loner whose obsession in life is keeping parasites ... among many more dark delights to be found inside.


The Corona Book of Horror Stories also includes potted biographies of all its 16 writers and a list of author websites and Twitter accounts, to aid you, should the book lead you to the discovery of a new favourite author. We think it might.

1. The first story in the book is "Nizzy's Egg" by S.L. Powell
