Cullen Bunn announces Outer Shadows, a new horror imprint
Cullen Bunn has announced a new imprint curated by him. Outer Shadows will be released and published through Outland Entertainment and will focus on horror. A deeper foray into the horror genre than Outland’s previous works, Outer Shadows will feature work created and curated by Bunn. Outer Shadows will bring readers novels, novellas, short story collections, comics, games, and more.
Several Outer Shadows projects are already in the works. The first publication, Swords in the Shadows, is an anthology of sword and sorcery tales with horror themes. The anthology is set to feature stories by some of the biggest names in the horror genre, including Joe R. Lansdale, Brian Keene, Mary SanGiovanni, Stephen Graham Jones, Hailee Piper, and Jonathan Janz, among many others. Bunn is editing the book.
Bunn’s own horror/fantasy novella Raze: Mother, Maiden, Crone will be released alongside Swords in the Shadows.
Other upcoming projects include I’ll Kill You Last, an anthology of horror tales set firmly in the world of 80s action movies. This book will be edited by Bunn. In addition, Outer Shadows is slated to reprint Bunn’s middle grade horror novel Crooked Hills and publish a sequel. Plans also include publication of a complete collection of Bunn’s short fiction and a book collecting stories from Whispers from the Shattered Forum, the small press magazine Bunn edited more than twenty years ago.
