CHICAGO, Apr. 14, 2015—Just when you thought the worst thing you had to fear in the United States was the end of tax season, a group of accomplished horror authors aim to prove there really is something far more frightening when they begin a 16-day investigation to answer the enduring questions about what awaits us at the end of life.
“This group of talented authors are going to engage and entertain horror fans with this discussion on some important issues of life and death,” explained Editor and Publisher Anthony Rivera of Grey Matter Press. “Over sixteen days they’ll share a diverse selection of personal essays, editorial opinions, homages to master authors from the past, new horror fiction and a number of other surprises designed to offer insight on the topic of death and what may await us when we die.”
Participating in the DEATH’S REALM Blog Tour are contributors to the anthology of the same name, published by Grey Matter Press. The volume of horror fiction features short stories whose themes include ghosts, hauntings, deadly apparitions, the mysteries of the afterlife, supernatural and paranormal activity, and some of the more provocative challenges that may await us once we step beyond the veil.
Those sharing their thoughts on death, dying and, in some cases, predicting their own demise, incliude two-time Bram Stoker Award winner Hank Schwaeble; Bram Stoker nominees JG Faherty and John F.D. Taff; editor-in-chief of Jamais Vu magazine Paul Michael Anderson; the critically acclaimed Jay Caselberg; masters of modern horror Aaron Polson, Gregory L. Norris and Martin Rose; disturbing horror co-authors Karen Runge and Simon Dewar; reader and reviewer favorites Brian Fatah Steele, John C. Foster and Jane Brooks; Lovecraft-inspired Rhoads Brazos; award-winning Jay O’Shea; and literary fiction author and playwright Matthew Pegg.
“It’s going to be exciting for horror fans to learn how the concept of death affects some their favorite authors, how those authors each interpret this event very differently and also how it resonates with them in their own lives, their work and that of their horror influencers,” said Rivera.
The DEATH’S REALM Blog Tour is a more than two-week investigation that begins Thursday, April 16th and runs through Friday, May 1.
