At the start of August, Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing released a great anthology called LOST SIGNALS. The theme of this anthology was horror transmissions or signals from beyond. A whole host of writers from across the genre came forth with some epic, unsettling, weird and downright creepy tales. I am soon launching a new feature called BTB Storytellers in which writers tell the story behind one of their books. Running parallel with this feature will be LOST SIGNALS: Storytellers. A feature in which the writers inside this anthology have given up their time to write about their entry. There are some 20+ stories inside this anthology and each week I will bring you the stories behind 3 of them. Each story will feature engaging and interesting thoughts about where these ideas come from. I will also be including the artwork for each individual piece which was brilliantly created by Luke Spooner at Carrion House. Underneath each story you will find various links to the contributors websites, blogs, etc. I hope you enjoy these thoughts as much as I did.
What’s that sound? Do you feel it? The signals are already inside you. You never even had a chance. A tome of horror fiction featuring radio waves, numbers stations, rogue transmissions, and other unimaginable sounds you only wish were fiction. Forget about what’s hiding in the shadows, and start worrying about what’s hiding in the dead air. With stories by Matthew M. Bartlett, T.E. Grau, Joseph Bouthiette Jr., Josh Malerman, David James Keaton, Tony Burgess, Michael Paul Gonzalez, George Cotronis, Betty Rocksteady, Christopher Slatsky, Amanda Hard, Gabino Iglesias, Dyer Wilk, Ashlee Scheuerman, Matt Andrew, H.F. Arnold, John C. Foster, Vince Darcangelo, Regina Solomond, Joshua Chaplinsky, Damien Angelica Walters, Paul Michael Anderson, and James Newman. Also includes an introduction from World Fantasy-award-winning author, Scott Nicolay.
