I forgot to post my unboxing for the August box of The Abominable Book Club, but don’t fear. My unboxing of the September box is here!
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!
This month, my box was filled with:
- Some chocolate from the Little Welsh Chocolate Company. I can say this one is very good.
- A creepy spookmark with a spooky short tale
- Some hot chocolate, tea and this month they also added some instant coffee!
- A new book: Growing Things by Paul Tremblay
- A second hand book: The Travelling Vampire Show by Richard Laymon
- An e-book: Desper Hollow by Elizabeth Massie
I’m excited to read both books, but I’m a bit wary of the Laymon one. My first experience with his (quite sexist) work wasn’t that good.
