It’s time for another unboxing of my Abominable Book Club box! Unfortunately, it will be my last one for a while, due to a new job. I hope to resubscribe soon, because I already miss my monthly horror fix!

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’s Abominable Book Club box included:

  • Some tea, coffee and hot chocolate
  • Chocolate Aberffraw biscuits
  • A creepy spookmark!
  • The Ghastling magazine with short horror stories
  • A new book: The Grip of It by Jac Jemc
  • A second-hand book: Omen IV by Gordon McGill
  • And a special surprise 👻

This month was the anniversary of Abominable Book Club and to celebrate they creeped lucky people out by putting limbs and the head of a doll in some of the boxes. The ones that found one part, will win a special prize! AND I FOUND ONE! I’m so curious what my special prize will be!

  1. I have always been curious about The Abominable Book Club subscription and these look like very interesting horror books to read! I still cannot believe that the spooky doll’s head was in the box. Surreal! I would have freaked out.
