The Horror BiWeekly Bulletin serves to give you the highlights on horror for the current and previous week. Notes about new releases in books, movies, and games when possible. We also have a fresh guest post prompt every week.
This week we have a giveaway for Tim McGregor’s new book
Hearts Strange and Dreadful by Tim McGregor
New England, 1821—Hester Stokely, an orphan with unusual abilities, struggles to find her place in the pious town of Wickstead. A house-servant in the employ of her uncle’s upright family, Hester is treated as little more than a pariah by the judgmental townsfolk.
When a deadly plague comes to town, Hester becomes indispensable as a healer. Yet as Hester watches the town’s residents rapidly fall ill, she realizes that something more dangerous than disease has come to Wickstead.
Soon the buried dead are exhumed on rumor of superstition, and occult fires burn fiercely into the night. As the townspeople turn on each other, a mysterious traveler arrives, furthering the growing paranoia.
Hester must confront the dark forces which have invaded Wickstead, or all who live there may be lost… their souls included.

Hi, I wanted to alert someone to an error on one of the Horror on the Web links. It currently says Edgar Wright has passed, which is incorrect. The tweet it links to was made by Edgar Wright regarding the unfortunate passing of Hal Holbrook. Just a friendly heads up!
Thank you so much. We will get that fixed.
Hopefully I’ll win this one! 😁
I’d love a signed copy of Hearts Strange and Dreadful. Can’t wait to read it!
