This Is Horror Draws Some Water for DrowningThe latest in the acclaimed fiction chapbook line from British small press ‘This Is Horror’ has been revealed as Ray Cluley’s Water for Drowning, which will be coming to us in a special edition sporting some very nice extras. Read on for the deets!

Synopsis:
Bad things happen to good people, but sometimes the reverse is true, too.

For Josh, falling in love does not fit in with his rock and roll lifestyle. And falling for someone who believes in mermaids? Who wants to be one? Well, he wasn’t expecting that, either.

But the sea is deep with mysteries. Sometimes they wash ashore, whispered in the hush of a quiet tide, and all you have to do is listen. Other times you have to have to explore the dark beneath the surface yourself, unsure of what you might find…

Regular readers of Dread Central may have noticed Cluley’s name as one of the most consistently impressive contributors to TTA Press’ horror fiction magazine ‘Black Static’, and his wider critical reception continues to impress on an ever grander scale. So, then, it should be rather exciting for fans of Cluley’s macabre tales to note that this printing of Water for Drowning will also include a specially written introduction by the author, alongside his British Fantasy Award-winning story ‘Shark! Shark!’

All pre-ordered editions of Water for Drowning will also be individually signed by Cluley – an extra perk that will no longer be available when the general release date, currently specified as ‘Summer 2014’, rolls around.

Water for Drowning can be pre-ordered at the This Is Horror Shop here, where you can also subscribe to their ongoing release line at a discounted price including various worldwide shipping options. Look out for a review coming soon!

Published

Now here’s an audio book we can REALLY get behind! Entertainment Weekly is reporting that former “Dexter” star Michael C. Hall will be narrating the first ever unabridged recording of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary. Sometime’s audio is better!

Readers have been asking for this audiobook for a very long time,” Stephen King said in a statement. “I know the listening experience will be worth the wait with Michael as narrator.

We’re thrilled to finally bring Pet Sematary to King’s audiobook fans,” Simon & Schuster Audio president and publisher Chris Lynch added. “Michael C. Hall is a perfect match for this timeless story, which has long deserved an unabridged production.

The unabridged audiobook of Pet Sematary will be released by Simon & Schuster Audio on March 27. Speaking of Hall… you know he would make a pretty friggin’ good casting choice to play Victor Pascow in the upcoming Pet Sematary remake. Just sayin’.

Saw-inspired Game Play With Me Sets a Trap on Steam

Published

on

Saw fans have a lot to be happy about right now. In addition to Jigsaw being teased for Dead by Daylight, a new Saw-themed game called Play With Me has launched on Steam, and although it’s not officially connected with the franchise in any way, developer Airem promised that they created a videogame which looks and plays as though it were made by Jigsaw himself. As you can tell from the trailer and screenshots, the production values and overall quality of Play With Me appear to be considerably higher than most other indie horror games released on Steam, and you’ll probably be very happy to see that Airem took the time and effort to create stylized hand drawn environments rather than using purchased assets from the Unity Store.

The killer behind the sinister traps in Play With Me is known as the Illusion, with the player taking control of investigative journalist Robert Hawk as he tries to fight his way through a series of sick and twisted obstacles created by the lunatic. The voice acting in the trailer was a little cheesy, although we see at 1:09 that the player will be tasked with using a kitchen knife to cut open a dead body (presumably to retrieve an item hidden in the cadaver’s stomach), which is not an image you’ll be forgetting anytime soon.

IQ Publishing are offering a 15% discount off Play With Me for those who purchase the game before January 24, so Saw fans might want to mark that deadline in their calendars and purchase it from Steam before the time is up. After all, it can’t be worse than Konami’s awful official Saw videogames.
