It's true. In response to our worldwide call, we received a total of over 800 horror short story submissions - adding up to a staggering total of over three million words. But we read them all, selecting only the best of the best stories to include in this book.
That is why when we say The Third Corona Book of Horror Stories is something special, we mean it - and that when we say it contains the best in new horror short stories, that is no hyperbole.
Corona Books UK is a (still) fledgling publishing company based here in the UK. We aim to publish the brilliant, the innovative and the quirky, and can move with a speed and alacrity which bigger beasts in the publishing world simply wouldn't dream of. We are the publishers of The Great British Limerick Book - Filthy limericks for (nearly) every town in the UK by Lewis Williams (as featured in the Daily Star see here) and now increasingly making a name for ourselves publishing science fiction and horror anthologies with the best in new short stories. Follow us on Twitter where you'll find us tweeting daily(ish) and join our growing band of followers. (There's now 10,000+ of you!)
And as you'll know if you've watched the video above - If not, why not? Go back and watch it! - The Third Corona Book of Horror Stories has a sister volume, with more of the best of the best stories from the 800+ submissions, those of a distinctly paranormal flavour.
The Corona Book of Ghost Stories proves that the art of the ghost story is not dead.
There have been plenty of books with old ghost stories from writers no longer with us, but with this book we're being brave enough to bring you something different - the best in new ghost stories, each one newly written for and set in the 21st century.
With its 16 stories from the most talented new writers, it's a must read not only for fans of horror but anyone who loves a good ghost story.
Out now in paperback and Kindle e-book. Kindle only £1.99 (or equivalent worldwide)
