About

The Geeky Book of Horror

'The Geeky Book Of Horror’ is an anthology of stories set to chill you to the bone. The twisted set of tales will suit the demands of today’s horror aficionado, producing just the right amount of spine chill. The book features four successful writers and a plethora of artists.   From zombies to vampires and crazy people to the Grim Reaper this collection really does have something for all horror readers.

The 128 page book will carry no less than two stories from each writer ensuring you get a great insight into their work.  As each writer has their own style, artists from all over the world will be supplying the illustrations. These include Mario Gully (Image Comics/Marvel) creator of ‘Ant’ the hit series by Image Comics, Camilo Ponce and Maxi Quy a water colour painter living in New York.

One of the collaborators for the project is Jeremy Biggs, who is not only the author of the 'Bearlands' series, but also of the highly successful 'Metal Made Flesh' book which was a huge hit on Kickstarter a short while ago.

 This project is the brainchild of award winning author Victor Wright.

“The Geeky Book of Horror is something I've wanted to do for a while. It’s sort of a modern day version of those old classic horror books Eerie and Creepy. The stories are complimented by an array of artists, but it’s not just about having great visuals; If the story-lines were average then the readers would be left disappointed. Each of the writers are different - but they all have one thing in common, the ability to freak you out!  These are some great horror writers.”

Risks and challenges

We won’t start a campaign knowing that finishing is a long way off or impossible. The graphic novel is scheduled for release in early December 2014.

If there are hold ups or production issues - you will be the first to know, the process is transparent.

Please make sure that your emails are checked regularly, so you don't miss important information. We encourage you to check your spam folder and keep an eye out of all Kickstarter emails. This is really important as you may miss something.

Several of the rewards are custom pieces of art or sketches. This takes time, be aware of that – for those that get their information to us on-time, your art will be top of the list.
