Dark Horse Books and Charles Wood Publishing AB are getting set to terrify readers with The Dark North, and we have all the early details for you here, including a look at the cover art!
Originally crowdfunded for publication in 2016, this illustrated prose-art book fusion features five unique tales ranging from Norse mythology to apocalyptic sci-fi to fantasy.
Writer Martin Dunelind composed The Dark North’s five enthralling tales, and the artwork is by Scandinavia’s leading illustrators and concept artists—including Peter Bergting (Baltimore: The Red Kingdom), Henrik Pettersson (concept artist on Minecraft at Mojang), Joakim Ericsson (concept artist at Starbreeze Studios), Magnus Olsson (Neotech RPG), and Lukas Thelin (Western RPG, Lone Wolf RPG). Thelin also created the beautiful cover.
With a foreword by author and filmmaker Clive Barker, this anthology is sure to delight and terrify any horror fan in equal measure.
Robert Henrysson, one of the instigators of The Dark North, comments: “We set out to give the world a peek into the amazing Scandinavian art of science fiction, fantasy, and horror; and when Dark Horse joined in, we knew we had succeeded. We can’t wait to see the reader response!”
The Dark North goes on sale September 27, 2017, and is available for pre-order now.
