We recently got an update from one of the hardest working men in horror, Gris Grimly, as to what he’s been up to, and two items definitely stood out.
First is Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Death and Dementia, the long-awaited sequel to Grimly’s 2004 Tales of Mystery and Madness. This time around Gris adds his unique illustrations to Poe’s classic “The Tell-Tale Heart”, “The Oblong Box”, “The Strange Case of Dr. Tarr and Professor Fether”, and “The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar”. According to the artist, this book is the same size, shape, and format as the first volume, only “darker, more demented, and better all around.” It won’t be out for a while, but why not go ahead and pre-order Tales of Death and Dementia from Evilshop.
Second we have those graverobbing ghouls from the short film “Cannibal Flesh Riot”, Stash and Hub, memorialized in a two-piece sculpture from Gentle Giant Ltd. The display stands about 9 inches tall, and you can either keep Stash and Hub together or split ’em up. The set is scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2009 and is available for preorder from Gentle Giant right now!
