Suprême – Il Circo delle Meraviglie

2262EAE9-6B32-4E58-839B-0084A4CD6918Disponibile da oggi, in occasione di Halloween, l’edizione digitale della novelette inedita ‘Suprême – Il Circo delle Meraviglie‘ di Caleb Battiago, aka Alessandro Manzetti, vincitore del Bram Stoker Award.

Sinossi: 2298. La sirena eco-limbica chiama tutti a raccolta, là dove la discarica di Baden cede il passo al blu solforico di un tendone da circo, e un carillon vivente vi invita a entrare brandendo un cartello ricco di macabre promesse.
Benvenuti al Suprême, vanto della capitale della Nuova Francia. Qui, mentre la Cloud-6 vi squaglia il cervello e un Coltrane apocalittico spreme caos dal suo sassofono, potrete ammirare, tra gli altri, Vivien Duemila Chili, l’Abominevole Uomo delle Feci, la Donna Ignobile, il Clown a Due Teste. Sono i nuovi freak, immolati al divertimento, mostri sputati da un mondo in rovina, in cui l’aberrazione impera e l’amore muove gli ultimi passi verso il capolinea. Mettetevi comodi e allentate i freni inibitori, se ne avete il coraggio. Che lo spettacolo abbia inizio!

Illustrazione di copertina di Wendy Saber Core.

Nuova antologia per John Langan

sefira

In uscita a giugno per Hippocampus Press Sefira and Other Betrayals, una nuova raccolta di John Langan, recente vincitore del Bram Stoker Award con il romanzo The Fisherman.

La raccolta comprende diversi racconti già apparsi in precedenza su rivista, e due testi inediti, la novella “Sefira” e la novelette “At Home in the Devil’s House“.

 

Hippocampus Press announced for June a new collection by John Langan, Sefira and Other Betrayals, with some short stories already published on a magazine, the novella “Sefira” and the novelette “At Home in the Devil’s House“.

John Langan just won the Bram Stoker Award for the novel The Fisherman.

La Ballata di Black Tom

Ballata di Black TomDisponibile per Edizioni Hypnos, nella collana Visioni, la traduzione italiana della novella di Victor LaValle, La Ballata di Black Tom, in formato digitale e cartaceo.

Il volume, il quinto della collana, con traduzione di Laura Sestri e copertina di Ivo Torello, riprende uno dei classici del fantastico, “Orrore a Red Hook” di H.P. Lovecraft, immergendolo nella realtà degli afroamericani della New York degli anni Venti.

La novella è finalista ai premi Hugo, Nebula, Stoker e Shirley Jackson.

Quello che uomini come me avrebbero respinto come superstizione o, peggio, come male puro, io imparavo invece ad apprezzarlo. Più leggevo, più ascoltavo, più divenivo sicuro che un immenso e segreto spettacolo fosse in atto durante la mia vita, durante tutte le nostre vite, ma la maggior parte di noi era troppo ignorante, o troppo spaventata per alzare lo sguardo e guardare. Perché guardare significherebbe capire che lo spettacolo non è stato allestito per noi. Significherebbe apprendere che non siamo assolutamente di alcun interesse per gli attori.

It is now available in italian the latest novella by Victor LaValle , published by Edizioni Hypnos: La Ballata di Black Tom, the fifth volume in the Visioni series, in digital and paper edition. The Author proposes a reinvention of the lovecraftian “Horror at Red Hook” in the US’s Twenties.

The novella was nominated for Hugo, Nebula, Stoker and Shirley Jackson Awards.
