Hell’s Event to Be a Part of a New Short Story Collection

Spread the love

Hello Everyone,

A new short story collection called Below the Stairs: Tales from the Cellar is coming out and will feature Clive Barker’s Books of Blood story Hell’s Event. Friend of the Podcast and editor Steve Dillon is putting the book together which will also feature stories from such classic horror authors like H.P Lovecraft, Ramsey Campbell, and Mark Alan Gunnells. Sounds like a lot of fun! I love the title and front cover page.

Hell’s Event is about a race that’s held in London every hundred years where Satan sends one of his representatives to run against the (unsuspecting) human racers. If Satan’s minion wins, then he gets to rule the Earth for all time. It’s a fun and gruesome story that I highly recommend to anyone that hasn’t had the pleasure to read it.

Here’s a link to the official Facebook page for info regarding this release:
