“I don’t mind nightmares. Nightmares are research.” –Nicole Cushing Earlier this year Nicole Cushing turned heads at the Bram Stoker Awards with Mr. Suicide, a novel about a teenager’s descent into madness and degeneracy. Praised by the likes of Jack Ketchum, Poppy Z. Brite and Thomas Ligotti, Cushing’s work is notable for how it leans toward the extreme side of horror, yet never descends into the realm of blatant gore or cheap thrills. No, Cushing’s terror is fueled by ideas . Enter The Sadist’s Bible, the novella that was deemed “too extreme” for corporate publishers. A tale of decadence, death, and divine suicide, The Sadist’sRead More →

The book that started it all. 10 years ago, creators Josh Finney and Kat Rocha published their first comic, Utopiates: The Ultimate Bet with the Mind. A cyberpunk noir tale of drugs, crime, and what it means to be human in a broken society. Following in the footsteps of Philip K. Dick, William Gibson, and Jeff Noon, Utopiates won much acclaim among the comics and science fiction community and cultivating a following from those who were hungry for more dark and gritty graphic novels that didn’t pull any punches. This set the stage for other hard hitting projects like Finney’s award winning Titanium Rain audioRead More →

Meet the Creators of World War Kaiju and Casefile:ARKHAM 01Publishing is proud to announce our first ever signing event at San Diego Comic Con 2016!

Fortunately for Josh, he can also write well, which seems to afford people like himRead More →

DJ from “MyLifeMyBooksMyEscape” sat down with Nicole Cushing to discuss “The Sadist’s Bible”, living in the mid west, Shirley Jackson, and the popularity of novellas. Here is a sample: DJ: What is the world of The Sadist’s Bible like? NC: Most of the book takes place in our own world. (Specifically, in southern Indiana, Kentucky, and Virginia.) In other words, the Bible Belt. The culture of the Bible Belt plays a large role in the story. It shapes the social mores that Ellie, in particular, is trying to escape from. But part of the story takes place in a mystical realm. (To avoid spoilers, I won’t divulgeRead More →

Recently, horror writer and Stoker winner Nicole Cushing wrote an editorial for the Ginger Nuts of Horror about nightmares, dissociation, experiencing death at an early age, and how that has affected her writing, especially for penning her latest novella, The Sadist’s Bible. Here is a sample: I don’t mind such nightmares. Nightmares are research. Now, to be clear, nightmares lack the narrative structure of a story and they typically lack well-developed characters, too. So there’s still a lot of work to do after I wake from them. (It isn’t just a matter of getting zapped with the right nightmare and writing it all down. As withRead More →

Recently Fanbase Press Editor in Chief, Barbra Dillon conducted an interview Patrick McEvoy on Casefile: ARKHAM. Here is an excerpt from the interview. BD: What initially intrigued you about working on the graphic novel, and have you likewise been a longtime fan of Lovecraft’s work?  PM: I read a collection of Lovecraft short stories when I was about 13, and I’ve been interested in his work ever since. On the surface, I love that overly ornate wordsmithing (like Ambrose Beirce.  Or Lord Dunsany, whom I’d read even earlier), but the deeper themes of hopeless cosmic terror and the incompatibility of the human mind with inter-dimensionalRead More →
