NARWAIN'S FIENDISH FABLES

Narwain Publishing has announced a late August release for Fiendish Fables, a horror/suspense anthology.

Fiendish Fables is the brainchild of writer John Schlim Jr., who set out to create a collection of creepy tales inspired by the classic horror comics that defined the genre.

"John Schlim Jr.'s Fiendish Fables hearken back to those glorious days," said Jeff Mariotte, who wrote an introduction for the anthology. "They're short and often grisly; they're fun and entertaining,fast-paced, well told, illustrated by a variety of styles."

"So much of today's horror seems focused on nothing more than sadistic voyeurism," Schlim said. "I wanted to revisit some of the classic traits and story elements of other eras to put some fun back into horror. The resulting tales of terror might not be works of literary merit, but hopefully these twisted vignettes provide some hair-raising reading pleasure for Halloween."

The book includes nine black-and-white stories illustrated in a wide range of artistic styles. Some are told in a more contemporary style, and one even uses a humorous tone.

"I was thrilled and honored to have Jeff Mariotte writing the introduction to this anthology and Billy Tucci providing the cover," Schlim said, "as well as to collaborate with such an amazing group of artists. Thanks to their incredible talents in visual storytelling, you'll be able to witness marauding zombie kids, a bloodthirsty vampire horse, vengeance-seeking storybook creatures, a wild west monster, the debut of Goth Ghost Girl, and much more!"

Fiendish Fables will be 48 pages and will cost $3.49.
