If you like to help the kids while enjoying some horror then there is an upcoming anthology of short horror stories just for you. Madame Movara’s Tales of Terror takes in the work of 29 authors, plus an introduction by horror icon Caroline Munro, who became a Hammer regular in films such as Dracula AD 1972 and Captain Kronos – Vampire Hunter before starring in a string of nasty ‘80s slashers, most notably Maniac and The Last Horror Film. All profits made from the book will go to Save The Children.
Here is the anthology’s official summary:
If you love the taste of fear, then this collection of short stories will be sure to chill your blood! An eclectic mix of spooky, horrific and gruesome tales from a motley group of writers, all of them condemned to suffer under the baleful gaze of your host, the devilish Madame Movara.
But wait! Whilst the authors themselves have been collected together in a hellish torment, Madame Movara promises that you WILL take delight from the words inside…
For as much as she is wicked, she is also kind. Every penny from the sale of this horror anthology will be donated to the International Children’s Charity, proving that some good will come from these truly dark tales.
Of course, Movara has also charmed her favourite horror icon into providing an introduction for the book! The legendary Hammer Horror actress Caroline Munro has kindly helped the Madame with her charity work…and Movara promises to spare her for her help, unlike the authors whose work lies within!
So sit back, and relish the scares that await you. Madame Movara assures you that you’ll be safe…your fate depends upon your will to donate!
The 29 authors included donated their work following a call for submissions over social media, asking for 1500-word stories. Madame Movara’s Tales of Terror is released on 20th October, just in time for some Halloween reading. It will initially be available in a Kindle edition, with a paperback to follow.
