Dark Regions Press have launched their latest Indiegogo campaign for three new upcoming books of science fiction, Lovecraftian horror and weird fiction. These three anthology titles are: You Human, Return of the Old Ones and The Children of Gla’aki.
Each book is available in ebook, trade paperback and signed limited edition hardcover formats. There’s a range of backing options available to suit your budget, from just buying the books to campaign-exclusive bundles, custom short stories and artwork, editing packages and more. There’s also stretch goals that can be unlocked which will add colour illustrations to the books.
You can find out more about these books and support the campaign at www.indiegogo.com/projects/three-new-books-from-dark-regions-press#.
Subterranean Press’ limited edition of China Miéville’s This Census-Taker is now out. Here are my four interior pieces for it.
…and here’s the cover for the UK eBook edition of Six Scary Stories, published by Hodder & Stoughton, which will be out on August 25th. It’s interesting to see how they’ve adapted my original artwork to fit their design.
This is the cover art for Six Scary Stories, a collection featuring six stories that were selected by Stephen King from a competition run by Hodder & Stoughton and the Guardian to celebrate the publication of his own The Bazaar of Bad Dreams collection. He was so impressed by the quality of these stories that he recommended that they be published together as a book.
The idea for the cover art came from King himself and is inspired from the winning story Wild Swimming by Elodie Harper.
The book will be available in trade hardcover and trade paperback editions from Cemetery Dance on October 31st. Hodder & Stoughton will also be publishing the collection as an ebook on August 25th in the UK and Commonwealth.
Here is a sketch intended for one of the Freedom of the Mask b&w interiors. It was unused in the end as the publisher thought it was best not to depict any scenes of torture in the illustrations so I chose an alternative scene to illustrate.
Freedom of the Mask, the latest installment in Robert McCammon’s Matthew Corbett adventures is now out from Subterranean Press.
The book is available in a number of editions: trade, limited and lettered. In addition, there is a signed trade edition of which there are only 1000 copies. The limited and lettered editions include an exclusive bonus novella, The House at the Edge of the World, as well as some interior art and endpaper art that isn’t in the trade edition.
Here are the b&w interiors I did to accompany the main novel.
This is the colour interior that’s exclusive to the limited/lettered edition.
These are the illustrations that accompany the bonus novella in the limited/lettered edition.
And finally, here’s the endpaper art in the limited/lettered edition.
Used Stories, a collection of 5 stories from Poppy Z. Brite is now available in ebook format from Independent Legions Publishing. This chapbook of previously uncollected reprints (originally published by Subterranean Press) includes the stories: Toxic Wastrels, Homewrecker, Essence of Rose, Nailed and The Goose Girl.

Here is my cover design for Return of the Old Ones: Apocalyptic Lovecraftian Horror which is coming from Dark Regions Press later this year. It is edited by Brian M. Sammons and will feature stories of Lovecraftian and cosmic horror based in pre, during and post-apocalyptic earth. Orgininally it was just going to be a front cover image, however, after seeing the initial rough sketch, the publisher wanted to extend it into a full wraparound image to make it an even more epic-looking cover!
Return of the Old Ones will be launched by Dark Regions Press for preorder in a multi-book launch campaign in fall this year; you can learn more at DarkRegions.com.
The Dark is an online dark fantasy and horror short fiction magazine edited by Sean Wallace. This latest issue includes two all-new stories and two reprints. Previous issues are also still available.
