We’re all attempting to discover methods to keep ourselves and or our family's housemates involved and entertained throughout this period of social distancing. Might I recommend a bit of horror?

Tor Books launched its horror imprint, Night fire Books, aimed at publishing fiction, that “unsettles and delights, exploring the full range of horror, dark fantasy, and the supernatural” back in April. 

The imprint’s first publication, is planned to come out shortly, but that doesn’t mean it’s not putting out some chilling content in the meantime.

In February, Night fire Books launched Come Join Us By the Fire, an audio-only anthology of horror short stories, available to listen to for free. The collection offers approximately hours of creepy content, is narrated by Gerard Doyle, Ramon de Ocampo, and Saskia Maarleveld, and includes some of our favorite authors, including Joe R. Lansdale, Paul Tremblay, Sam J. Miller, China Miéville, and Carmen Maria Machado.

“We wanted this long list of stories to showcase the scope of modern horror,” said Theresa DeLucci, editor of Come Join Us By the Fire,” from the cosmic and Lovecraftian, the beloved undead tropes of zombies, ghosts, and slashers, to the more uncanny and internal terrors of isolation, lost love, aging, and one of the briefest, most distressing alien abduction stories you’ll ever hear “No Matter Which Way We Turned” by Guggenheim Fellowship recipient Brian Evenson.” 

Already checked it out? Well then, so you like precious undead tropes of zombies, ghosts, monsters, aliens, and slashers, to the more uncanny and internal terrors of isolation? Try reading the best-selling book Obliterated, Everything Is About to Change." Has it not already started?
