Press Release: Classic Monsters Unleashed

Are y’all ready for this? Coming October 21, Crystal Lake Publishing releases Classic Monsters Unleashed… and they’re running a Kickstarter to make sure we all have a chance to get some fantastic perks!

So what will be in Classic Monsters Unleashed?

Readers will see monsters and villains reimagined and subverted by this diverse roster of authors. Some examples to whet your appetite: Seanan McGuire has a story about a female mad scientist, and Dracula is reimagined with an Indigenous twist by Owl Goingback. Speaking of Dracula, Classic Monsters Unleashed also has a Dracula story by Dacre Stoker, the great-grandnephew of Bram Stoker.

On top of THAT:

  • Stories will include icons such as Frankenstein’s Monster, Dracula, the Headless Horseman, Dr. Moreau, the Invisible Man, and many others. 
  • Classic Monsters Unleashed has new stories by Jonathan Maberry, Ramsey Campbell, Maurice Broaddus, Linda Addison and even four of the 2020 Stoker finalists: Mercedes Yardley, Tim Waggoner, Monique Snyman, and Alessandro Manzetti.
  • Classic Monsters Unleashed is edited by James Aquilone, managing editor of Weird Tales Magazine.
  • The gorgeous cover and some interior illustrations are by Colton Worley (Dynamite Entertainment), with text design by Shawn T. King, and there are other interior illustrations by the legendary Frank Frazetta.
  • There are other interior illustrations by the legendary Frank Frazetta and Sam Shearon (Clive Barker’s Hellraiser and Books of Blood). 

Now, as usual with SF&S, we believe in putting our money where our mouth is, so we’ve already backed the Kickstarter before even posting this release, and now we invite you to join us and back this fantastic project and grab some spooky goodies at the same time.
