Shane McKenzie is one hell of a productive author. He’s released two books in 2014 so far and has a comic available through Zenescope. Today we’re pleased to announce that he’s readying a hardcover release of The Oak, a follow-up to 2012’s Infinity House. Find out how to pre-order this glorious deluxe edition here!
The Oak is seeing a limited edition release that will set you back $85. For this amount the folks at Sideshow Press have arranged a fantastic collector’s set easily worth that much.
From Sideshow Press:
In July of 2012, the release of INFINITY HOUSE by Gallows Press introduced horror readers to the sick and talented new author Shane McKenzie and the twisted world in which a mysterious old house and its cursed owner terrorize teens in a poverty-ridden and cursed neighborhood.
In THE OAK McKenzie seeks to shed more light on the sinister goings-on in this crime-riddled hood as he peels back the maggot-ridden curtain hiding its many terrifying secrets. Through a serious of interconnected stories featuring five of The Oak’s doomed citizens, McKenzie exposes the horrifying truth about Infinity House, its pedophilic owner, and its forsaken children.
And, yes…there are maggots…
This is the definitive way to experience INFINITY HOUSE, and fans of this book will be floored by the amount of material Shane has provided.
