"The Geeky Book of Horror" Kicking Off Kickstarter Campaign

Horror writers Jeremy Biggs, Victor Wright, Nathan Stack and John Robinson are teaming up to bring readers "The Geeky Book of Horror." The anthology will contain new stories that harken back to the horror stories we grew up on; a little silly with some spine chilling creeps along the way! Think of it as a new version of Alvin Schwartz' "Scary Stories" collection, for adults.

As of now, the book will feature 128 pages featuring at least two stories from each author. Various artists around the world, including Mario Gully & Maxi Quy, will be providing black and white illustrations to keep in the vein of classic horror stories.

When asked what the goal of the project is, author Victor Wright stated, "We wanted to write a book that would chill you to the bone; I think this does just that![...]It's great to be working alongside such great talent. These guys are gonna freak you out!"

No strangers to self publishing, each author has successfully published their own titles in the past. A Kickstarter campaign will go live on July 7, to bring this graphic novel/geeky horror anthology to life. The team is looking to raise £6000 ($10,204 USD) to put the project into production.

Backers who pledge £20 ($34 USD) will receive a copy of the book and for donations over that, you can receive merchandise from artwork to signed copies of the book and much more! If they attain their goal, "The Geeky Book of Horror" is set for a December 2014 release.
