With the line-up of writers and stories for Hersham Horror Book’s Alt-Dead anthology confirmed, the editorial team have gone into full-on editing mode.

Editor Peter Mark May has divided the stories into two batches for his deputy editors – Adrian Chamberlin and yours truly – to read through and edit.

I finished working through my batch of eight yesterday and a thoroughly enjoyable read the stories were too. It reminded me of my previous life editing and publishing Peeping Tom with my good friend David Bell.

Alt-Dead will be the first title published by Hersham Horror Books. Currently at editing stage, the anthology will be a print and Kindle release, with an approximate release date of 1st September 2011 and a launch at FantasyCon over the weekend of 30th September to 2nd October 2011 at the Royal Albion Hotel, Brighton.

Mr Huxton Goes Camping by Mark West
