Books #5 & #6 in the Delirium Hardcover Chapbook Series have just been announced. Each signed and numbered hardcover chapbook is side-sewn and has a full graphic wraparound cover and measures 4 1/2 inches x 6 1/4 inches and is exactly 100 pages.
The six brand-new stories that constitute John Maclay’s latest collection, Divagations, demonstrate not just his specialty, the short-short story, but also his depth of style and characterization in the longer form. As usual, he is dark and downbeat, but at the same time he holds out hope that by honestly engaging with horror, one can find a better end.
Infiltrating this bloodthirsty cult is too big of a job for just one man, especially when he has the intelligence of half a man. But when he joins forces with the also-less-than-100%-competent Andrew Mayhem, maybe, just maybe, their combined efforts will succeed in thwarting this savage menace. Or perhaps they’ll just embarrass themselves and get killed.
Both titles are available for pre-order at Horror Mal:
