TO DEBUT AT WORLD HORROR CONVENTION 2014
Special Limited Advance Edition of THE END IN ALL BEGINNINGS, an All-New Horror Collection from Taff and Grey Matter Press, to Make its First Appearance at the Annual Industry Event
CHICAGO, April 28, 2014 — The Chicago-based independent publisher known for its volumes of exceptional fiction, Grey Matter Press, announced that it will debut its next collection of five horror novellas written by author John F.D. Taff, The End in All Beginnings, at the upcoming 2014 World Horror Convention.
A very limited quantity of this new collection by Taff will be produced and made available especially for attendees of the annual horror industry event in advance of its release later this summer.
“We are happy to be able to offer this darkly beautiful collection of emotional horrors to the many horror fans who will be attending the Portland event this year,” said Grey Matter Press publisher Anthony Rivera. “This is truly a stunning collection of disturbing tales of heartbreak and personal anguish, and I can think of no better venue than this year’s convention at which to share this sneak peek with John’s fans.”
The single-author collection, written by Taff and edited by Bram Stoker Award nominated editor R.J. Cavender, includes five novellas that explore the painful, emotional horrors of life, love and loss through the ages. The End in All Beginnings is Taff’s second collection, following his successful Little Deaths that was released in 2012.
The new collection contains the stories “What Becomes God,” “Object Permanence,” “Love in the Time of Zombies,” “The Long, Long Breakdown” and “Visitation,” all of which explore darkly beautiful and intricate themes that blend elements of horror, science fiction and suspense for which Taff’s work is known.
“I am extremely proud of this book, and I can’t wait for readers to get it and experience the novellas inside,” said Taff. “I look forward to sharing this very special limited edition with everyone in Portland, and am excited for the release of the final version in a few short months.”
New York Times bestselling author of CODE ZERO and FALL OF NIGHT, Jonathan Maberry, said of The End in All Beginnings: “Taff brings the pain in five damaged and disturbing tales of love gone horribly wrong. This collection is like a knife in the heart. I highly recommend it.”
More information about how and when fans can get a copy of The End in All Beginnings will be made available at the convention which will be held in Portland, Oregon between May 8-11, 2014.
