Slight Delay with Michael Cisco's Chapbook and More Updates!

We've emailed everybody who purchased and updated the product page but just in case anybody missed it, the release date for Charitable Chapbook #7 Do You Mind If We Dance With Your Legs? by Michael Cisco is slightly delayed and the release has been pushed back to February 28th. We're very sorry for the delay but we're working hard to get this one finished up and we can't wait to get it out to folks! If you haven't pre-ordered yet, there are still copies available

1/3 of the proceeds for this one will go to the LA LGBT Center. This chapbook sports this unsettling cover by Don Noble and has spectacular interior color illustrations by Luke Spooner

We're on track to start production this coming Friday and then copies should arrive with Michael to sign next week and then they'll be heading back to us to ship out to everybody. You do not want to miss this book, folks! Click here to check out the review that The Miskatonic Review did for this phenomenal novelette.

In other chapbook news, Charitable Chapbook #6, Gwendolyn Kiste's The Invention of Ghosts is nearly sold out! As of this writing there are currently only 12 copies remaining, so, now is the time to get yours before they're gone FOREVER (...forever... forever... forever...). The chapbook edition of The Invention of Ghosts is limited to only 100 copies, will contribute 1/3 of all its proceeds to The National Aviary, and the amazing cover and interior artwork was all done by the ever fantastic Luke Spooner

Folks are saying some really lovely things about this one. You can check out rave reviews from The Monster Librarian, The Horror Fiction Review, The Dead Walk, and more.

Gwendolyn also wrote this intriguing essay over at Kendall Reviews about the holidays and the ghosts we leave behind that ties into the core of the story in The Invention of Ghosts.

Speaking of 100 copy chapbook runs, Charitable Chapbook #3, Doungjai Gam's "watch the whole goddamned thing burn" is nearly halfway sold out. Gam is one of noir and horror fiction's best kept secrets and it's about time the cat got out of the bag. This chapbook will give 1/3 of its proceeds from the paperback edition to Trans Lifeline (a charity that is very close to our hearts here at Nightscape Press given that Jennifer and Robert Wilson's daughter just came out as trans in 2018). 

The novelette's gorgeous cover was created by Matthew Revert, and the book is also fully color illustrated by Luke Spooner. This is a perfect book to pick up for Women in Horror month, so grab up a copy! You won't regret it. Gam's story cuts like a razor and leaves you gasping and wounded. As expressed by this fantastic review over at Goodreads

We also still have copies of Charitable Chapbook #5 Michael Wehunt's Everything is Beautiful and Nothing Bad Can Ever Happen Here which came out in November of last year. This disturbing tale takes a close look at white complicity in the face of racism while also managing to be both weird and incredibly disturbing in a supernatural way at the same time. 1/3 of all proceeds from this limited chapbook edition will go to the Southern Poverty Law Center which is incredibly apropos to anybody who's read this story. And this one sports another amazing cover by Don Noble and interior artwork as always from the great Luke Spooner

Cemetery Dance, This is Horror, Kendall Reviews, Dark Intersections, F*cked Up Books, More2Read, and Read By Dusk have all left great reviews for this one for those who don't know much about it. You can also read this in depth interview with Michael to get a deeper look into the novella, his writing process and more.  

And of course, don't forget to pre-order our next Charitable Chapbook, Glorious by Livia Llewellyn which will contribute to First Book (cover art coming soon)!

We'll have more updates soon on several titles so please keep an eye out for those. Take care, folks!
