We got word today from Asylum Press about a new horror anthology entitled The Asylum of Horrors that is being released in September, 2008. “The premise of the book is that a mad psychiatrist/doctor is running an asylum that has psychotics and killers as inmates. This doctor uses experimental treatments and hallucinatory drugs on them. Then he connects their brains to his and watches these inmates’ induced nightmares.”
Each issue will have beginning and end bumpers. A few of the tales include “Human Growth Hormone” by Frank Forte, in which a geek’s love for a girl drives him to desperate measures; “The Last Line” by Atilla Futaki, which explores a man’s bizarre train ride; “Madness” a Lovecraftian horror tale by Marcin Ponomarew; and “Ruined Earth-CARNIGOR” an apocalyptic zombie tale by Billy George. According to Forte, who founded Asylum Press back in 1999, “There will be a lot of good twists that you don’t see coming; we will give the reader plenty of psychological horror as well as blood and gore. I hope there will be something for everyone.”
But that’s not the best news …
