Welcome to The Horror Lounge, a week-long celebration of horror fiction. The idea for running this campaign came from a few conversations I had on Twitter about James Herbert, I absolutely loved his books when I was a teenager, they scared me stupid and I remember *coughs* enjoying the sex scenes quite a bit too. Anyway, he is not the only horror author who gets very little air time, the genre is very under-served across the board.

Now that I've spent a few months researching the wider horror world, it will be no surprise that it is an incredibly active and vibrant community. Horror TV and film is booming. Stephen King's IT has broken box office records and the next film has already be announced for 2019. I've found and profiled the best horror magazines, podcasts, Instagram accounts and found some unusual Halloween. 

In the book world, other genres seem to have to consumed horror, most bookshops don't have horror-specific shelves and publishers aren't acquiring new horror books.

During the Horror Lounge week we'll celebrate and showcase all of the sub genres of horror, YA horror, classics, women of horror, diverse voices, anthologies, poetry and short stories.
