Your Home for Horror


“Hot Off the Press” is a killer collection of short horror fiction from industry icons and influencers, with all proceeds benefiting charity.

Hot Off the Press

Hot off the Press is this year’s Red Cape Publishing charity anthology in aid of FAST UK, the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics.

Compiled by Jay Michaels and former Morbidly Beautiful contributor Donovan “Monster” Smith, Hot off the Press: A Charity Anthology features over forty pieces of flash fiction from some of the biggest names in the indie horror community, including screenwriters, actors, directors, authors, and producers.

Contributors include Adam Marcus (Jason Goes to Hell), Bill Oberst Jr (3 from Hell), Cortney Palm (Zombeavers), Tony Sands, MJ Dixon, David Owain Hughes, Astrid Addams, and many, many more. Our very own writers, Danni Winn and Patrick Krause are also featured contributors, and we could not be more proud.

So, dim the lights, draw the curtains, and settle in for an onslaught of short bites of fiction.

Grab your Kindle or Paperback edition at the Amazon link below (or see where else it’s available to purchase here), and enjoy some great horror for a great cause. All proceeds will be donated to charity.
