So, in the most exciting news I’ve been able to share yet, my novella Sole Survivor, will be the sixth release in Unnerving Magazine’s new Rewind or Die series.
An uninhabited island.
Several hundred hidden cameras.
One man employed to thin their numbers.
One predatory species determined to feed.
Tune in to discover who will be the Sole Survivor!
To say I’m stoked about this is the understatement of the year. First, though, have a look at that cover. It’s the work of Unnerving’s very own Eddie Generous, who is a gun author in his own right. The fact that Unnerving – which is a bit of dream publisher for me – has picked this one up had me pumping my fist like Lleyton Hewitt.
I won’t go into too much detail for you now – except to say that you’d better believe this one takes one of Australia’s favourite practical joke/urban legend cryptids – the drop bear – and twists it into a nasty little creature on an island in the Pacific Ocean.
Throw in some reality television, add a liberal dash of Lord of the Flies and take inspiration from brutal animal horror like James Herberts’ The Rats, and you can figure out what you’re in for.
Anyway, here’s the blurb from Unnerving Magazine’s Twitter:
This series is going to be incredible. To be part of one that features Stephen Graham Jones in its first release is a dream come true.
Anyway, I’m sure you’ll love it.
It drops on March 26.
