Coming August 2015 from Infected Books is VOODOO CHILD, a brand new horror novel by Andre Duza (DEAD BITCH ARMY, HOLLOW EYED MARY, KING DOLLAR) and Wayne Simmons (FLU, THE GIRL IN THE BASEMENT). VOODOO CHILD is a homage book, a love letter to the slasher craze of the 80s as well as the works of legendary horror hacks such as Richard Laymon. ‘The 80s was to horror cinema what the 60s was to the music industry,’ Duza comments. ‘Voodoo Child is in essence my thank you to the decade that raised me, and to the directors/ writers/ FX gurus that populated the era.’
The cover art for VOODOO CHILD is by veteran horror artist, Alex McVey, who has designed covers for such staples of the genre as Stephen King, Peter Straub and Joe Hill.
‘I think this cover speaks volumes of what you can expect from the book,’ Simmons points out. ‘Andre and I are a similar age. We’re both children of the 80s and remember the joys of visiting the local video store and choosing something from the horror section based solely on how gory and over-the-top and lewd the cover art was. This book speaks to the teenage gore hound still within many horror fans today.’
VOODOO CHILD will see release through Infected Books in August 2015 on both e-book and a special vintage-styled, pulp-sized paperback format.
