House of Fear Anthology - Solaris

Solaris has announced their new big anthology next year, HOUSE OF FEAR, hot on the heels of this year's release, End of the Line. HOUSE is just what it sounds like, an anthology of haunted house ghost stories. These are actually my favorite kind of stories, so I was pretty thrilled when editor-in-chief Jon Oliver asked me to be a part of it. Now with contracts signed, all we have to do is write the stories. I'm sharing page space with some very cool folks. Always great to be in books with Joe Lansdale, Tim Lebbon, and Sarah Pinborough. Pretty keen to be in one with Chris Fowler too. I love his writing. As I do Eric Brown's and Chaz Brenchley's. If it could be even better, this gives me the opportunity to read fiction from the other contributors, whom I am sure will leave me with similar impressions.

Here's the official announcement from Solaris.

"In October 2011, I will again be bringing you an anthology of horror fiction, House of Fear, this one centered around the theme of the haunted house. We've almost locked down the list of authors for this, but just to give you a list of who we have so far: Joe R. Lansdale, Paul Meloy, Adam L.G. Nevill, Lisa Tuttle, Tim Lebbon, Sarah Pinborough, Eric Brown, Jonathan Green, Nicholas Royle, Christopher Priest, Nina Allan, Chaz Brenchley, Stephen Volk, Christopher Fowler, Garry Kilworth, Weston Ochse, Rebecca Levene."
