Last week the April box of The Abominable Book Club arrived and it contained some books and goodies I’m excited to show you!
About Abominable Book Club
Our boxes now come with THREE exciting reads; the first is our featured book release in the Thriller/ Horror subgenres, chosen by us, which can be discussed throughout the month on our forums!
The second is a random book in the horror or thriller genre, gently used and supplied to us by a mysterious benefactor known as Brother Usef, Head Curator of the Accursed Library. We are not entirely sure why, but we feel deeply compelled to include these books in our boxes!
Our third read will alter from month to month.
We are proud to announce that we are partnering with the UK-based horror fiction magazine ‘Black Static’ (TTA Press) and we will be including new issues in our boxes on a bi-monthly basis starting with our February Box! Owen has long been subscribed to Black Static and is consistently impressed with the incredible array of talent found amongst their pages. We hope you feel the same!
In the boxes between Black Static’s, we will be sourcing an indie e-book to include in our boxes, from self-published and established genre writers alike – so if you’re a writer and you can offer bulk e-book codes, then get in touch!
We also include a fancy artisan chocolate or snack (sourced from local independent chocolatiers and confectioners here in Wales) in order to make those nocturnal reading sessions a little bit more comfortable. We will also give you a hot drink or two to wash it down!
The Abominable Book Club contains all the dark magic of a haunted bookshop, summoned directly to your doorstep!
What I got in April’s box:
- Some delicious “stroopwafels” that I enjoyed while typing this post
- A spookmark with a macabre little story
- Some tea and hot chocolate
- Black Static issue 68: a bimonthly magazine with short stories and horror reviews/art
- New book: Good Samaritans by Will Carver
- Second-hand book: Island by Richard Laymon
Once again, I’m super excited to dive into the books – they sound scary!
