Ghoulish Art Ghoulish Books Ghoulish Ghosts News


Ghouls & ghosts, can we get your attention please! In case you missed the news earlier this year, Ghoulish Books has joined forces with Little Ghosts to form an itty bitty imprint naturally titled Ghoulish Ghosts. Here is our logo, designed by Chris Krawczyk.

Ghoulish Ghosts presents the ultimate spooky collaboration between Little Ghosts Books and Ghoulish Books; small press publishers and indie horror bookstores. Little Ghosts resides up in Toronto, Canada, and Ghoulish boils alive down in San Antonio, Texas. Together we have joined forces to create the Ghoulish Ghosts imprint, with our first release being a dos-à-dos collection of two novellas: Roots Run Deep by J. Krawczyk and The ‘Dillo by Max Booth III.

I loved the artwork so much, I immediately got it permanently inked into my flesh:

This book is nearly ready to be printed. Everything has been edited and is in the process of being formatted. And, as of today, we officially have cover art for both of these novellas, thanks to the immensely talented Chris Krawczyk! Let’s check out the covers now, shall we?

Here’s Roots Run Deep…

Grieving the death of his wife, Edward finds solace in nurturing the primordial creature he finds in their garden. J. Krawczyk delivers a heady mix of sorrow and cosmic horror in ROOTS RUN DEEP.

And here’s The ‘Dillo…

In Max Booth III’s THE ‘DILLO, an alcoholic becomes obsessed with hunting down and killing an armadillo after his wife leaves him for another man.

And here is the full jacket:

If you’re unaware of a what a dos-à-dos collection is, exactly, it basically means there will be one novella at either end of the book, and to read the second one you’ll have to turn the book over and flip it upside down. Here’s a handy little graphic, in case I’m not being clear enough:

Read more about dos-à-dos binding HERE. What we’re doing isn’t exactly that, but it’s the closest we can achieve utilizing our current printer setup. I’ve always loved this type of book, personally, and I’m very excited to finally be doing one with Little Ghosts. Trust us, it’s going to look super cool and if you have one you will become the item of intense jealousy in your neighborhood.

Chris K. also came up with this little split cover for the eBook edition, for those who prefer reading digitally:

This book will come out by the end of the summer. We’re currently working our asses off with the formatting and proofing, and then we will start shipping out pre-orders.

Speaking of… if you’d like to pre-order this book (which of course you do, right?), US customers can pre-order directly from the GHOULISH webstore, and Canadian customers can pre-order from the Little Ghosts webstore.

You can also add it to your TBR on Goodreads!
