Tomorrow night I’ll be doing an AMA on Reddit Books along with Alison Moore, Aliya Whiteley and Gary Budden for the Eden Book Society.
As that hopefully implies, you may AMA (Ask Me Anything) about the Eden Book Society, its murky past, the mysterious figures involved or, if you want to, my own writing, and I shall be honour-bound to truthfully reply. This will be my first ever experience on Reddit and I suspect the end result will resemble that time your gran got flustered trying to use a remote control for the first time in the 1990s. So please, if for no other reason, tune in to witness that.
So that’s Wednesday 29th November, 7pm GMT (2PM EST if you’re an exotic American).
And if you've not done so already, please pledge money towards The Eden Book Society. The society was a secret publisher of horror novellas for almost 100 years that Dead Ink is reissuing to the public… except it's actually literary hoax I'm involved in.
You can find out all the info you need and pledge your money here.
See you tomorrow.
‘Don’t worry, Mom,’ says Danny Torrance in The Shining. ‘I know everything about cannibalism. I saw a program on it on TV.’
I wrote a piece on the history of cannibals in films for the Quietus, from 1932 Fay Wray schlocker Doctor X through to last year's The Neon Demon, with an excursion around cinema’s most iconic flesh-eater (the above image is a hint).
