Shock Your Body!

Edited by the award-winning Ellen Datlow, with a cover to die for by John Coulthard and a list of authors on the TOC that reads like a Who’s Who of horror, Body Shocks: Extreme Tales of Body Horror, looks set to be top of everyone’s Hallowe’en shopping list when it comes out in October this year.

Oh, and one of my stories is in it: ‘What I Found in the Shed’, which originally appeared in Supernatural Tales #31, then reappeared with some body-modification of its own in my Omnium Gatherum collection, Last Stop Wellsbourne. Here’s me reading the original version for those who can’t wait until October:
