Apokrupha Newsletter April 2024

Hello everyone! it has been a busy month here! so let’s start with the release! 


by John Boden

Print on Amazon:

Originally published by our old friends, Shock Totem back in 2013, we are so excited to have this book back in print. This dark, but beautiful tale of the coming apocalypse is illustrated by Yannick Bouchard.

This is one you’ll want on your bookshelves, but don’t take our word for it: 

There’s a level of wordsmithing happening with John that is unparalleled. Images that are shocking and beautiful, and you see the way he has arranged his words and they are these intricate configurations that are just….wow.

— Kristi DeMeester, Author of BENEATH and SUCH A PRETTY SMILE

Gorgeous. Stunning. Bizarre and strange. It’s literary and visual porn, that’s what it is. Not a lot of people will “get it”. But I don’t think it’s to be got. It’s to be experienced.

— Mercedes Murdock Yardley, Author of DARLING and BEAUTIFUL SORROWS

I’ve long been in awe of John Boden’s capacity for distilling profound dread into a single line. Reading this book is like watching someone who has not only pulled back the veil separating our world from the nightmares, but burned it, stomped out the embers, and pissed on the ashes. If I ever had a piece of advice to give, it would be “Don’t let John Boden into your head.”?

— Bracken MacLeod, Author of CLOSING COSTS and STRANDED

Cons Galore!

Two cons, back to back in April. Authorcon III in Williamsburg and Creature Feature Weekend in Gettysburg. Both were fantastic weekends of books, writers and horror. While I may be biased, I recommend adding both to your calendars for next year. 

Also I collected a lot of cards, bookmarks and web URLs to add more blogs to the Sunday Morning Horror News… Expect a large update next month. 

Two more events planned for the year: 

  • Horror on Main
  • Authorcon IV (St Louis)

We hope to see some of you there! 

Coming SOON!

We’ve been working on something for those of you who want to try out this blackout poetry thing. Keep an eye on Jessica McHugh’s Instagram for a sneak peek. 0_0

Final Thoughts

It was a busy month, back to back cons is a lot. I got home from Authorcon, opened my suit case and dumped clothes into the washer. Pulled them from the dryer and put them back in the suit case. It was fun, but I am also glad I don’t do it often. 

We did get a new addition to our table at Creature Feature.
