Finally, one of my favorite and one of the best horror editors is back in the game. Don D’Auria was the former executive editor for Dorchester Publishing’s Leisure Books imprint. When Dorchester decided to restructure Don was shown the door.
He has now been hired by Samhain Publishing to launch a new line of horror fiction.
Don has worked with some of the best authors in the business; Brian Keene, Richard Laymon, Ramsey Campbell, Bryan Smith, Mary SanGiovanni, Gord Rollo, John Everson, to name just a few.
This is really exciting news for the horror genre. Don is very well liked and respected in the industry and should attract some big names to Samhain.
Nothing but good things can come from this and I am very excited to get some great new horror fiction from Don and Samhain.
