Dread­ful thing to do

SFX - - Penny Dreadful -

Look out for the win­ner of the in­au­gu­ral James Her­bert Award for Hor­ror Writ­ing an­nounced later this month. The short­list is al­ready

out there, in­clud­ing Nick Cut­ter’s The Troop, Kim New­man’s An English Ghost Story and Josh Maler­man’s Bird­box among

the six. Ju­rors in­clude writ­ers Sarah Pin­bor­ough and Ram­say Camp­bell as well as James Her­bert’s el­dest daugh­ter Kerry, who de­scribed the short­list as a “fit­ting le­gacy” to her fa­ther. Any spot­light on great hor­ror lit­er­a­ture is

okay by me.
