Diabolica Britannica

The Covid-19 pandemic has certainly had a significant impact on the world. A topic that will be discussed for countless years to come, many will talk about the death, destruction and havoc that it caused. However, the pandemic is not all doom and gloom. It has also unearthed a long-forgotten camaraderie that we, as humans, possess. Fundraising, compassion and unity has become a way of life these past few months and it doesn’t look set to end any time soon.

The Diabolica Britannica, is another prime example of all of these traits. Bringing together 14 great authors, the anthology is the brainchild of Keith Anthony Baird. The charitable collection offers an immediate incentive to buy, as all profits go to the NHS! If that alone entices you, links to purchase the anthology are at the bottom of the page. But wait, there’s more!

Diabolica Britannica

Synopsis

Diabolica Britannica is a collection of 14 dark tales from the dark isles. It features contributions from the following authors: Adam L G Nevill, Tim Lebbon, Keith Anthony Baird, John F Leonard, Morgan K Tanner, Arthur M Harper, Christopher Henderson, Beverley Lee, Sarah E England, Catherine McCarthy, Stephanie Ellis, Janine Pipe, Sarah J Budd and Alyson Faye.

Horror maestro Ramsey Campbell provides a foreword, giving us an insight into what kind of terror the subsequent pages contain. From there the anthology starts with a hard-hitting tale from Catherine McCarthy and ups the pace with every story from there on! Now, ordinarily we’d focus on the stories that stand out from the rest. Yet, each one is genuinely as good as the last! From beautifully descriptive narratives, to tense, nail biting tales, Diabolica Britannica has it all. Whether you’re a blood and gore ghoul, purveyor of the paranormal or just love a good old fashioned Lovecraftian prose, this anthology is for you!

Overrall, the Diabolica Britannica is a great read for any horror fan. Not only that, but you can also bask in the knowledge that you’re contributing to a worthy cause!

Netflix Witcher Prequel

Whilst 2020 has pillaged and plundered our most anticipated movies/TV shows, Netflix has revealed some exciting news… There’s going to be a Witcher prequel series!

Set 1,200 years before the adventures of Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer on The Continent, The Witcher: Blood Origin will chart the origins of the very first Witcher. Declan de Barra, writer of The Witcher will act as showrunner in the six-part limited series. The Witcher Netflix series showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich is also on board as executive producer.

Synopsis

“Set in an elven world 1200 years before the world of The Witcher, Blood Origin will tell a story lost to time – the origin of the very first Witcher, and the events that lead to the pivotal ‘conjunction of the spheres,’ when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one.”

Teasing Blood Origin’s story, de Barra said, “A question has been burning in my mind ever since I first read The Witcher books – What was the Elven world really like before the cataclysmic arrival of the humans? I’ve always been fascinated by the rise and fall of civilizations, how science, discovery, and culture flourish right before that fall… The Witcher: Blood Origin will tell the tale of the Elven civilization before its fall, and most importantly reveal the forgotten history of the very first Witcher”

Lauren Schmidt Hissrich added: “It’s an exciting challenge to explore and expand The Witcher universe created by [author] Andrzej Sapkowski, and we can’t wait to introduce fans to new characters and an original story that will enrich our magical, mythical world even more.” 

Sapkowski himself said: “It is exciting that the world of Witcher – as planned in the very beginning – is expanding. I hope it will bring more fans to the world of my books.”

Exciting times ahead of us!
