DeadCades: Decades of the Damned
Here is the image from co-editor David Shakes twitter feed today- launching the news that the 3rd and final part of Infernal Clock’s horror trilogy – based on decades hence the witty pun on the title is in the works and the book is due in October 2018.
Shakes and co-editor on Horror Tree Steph Ellis are the talents and driving forces behind the Infernal Clock books.
I have been asked to write a story for this latest anthology and chose as my decade:- the roaring 1920’s-
– the decade of Clara Bow, Elinor Glyn’s IT quality, Valentino died, talkie movies arrived, the jazz babies danced the latest dance, the Charleston, til dawn in their flapper dresses high on coke and the joy of the end of the Great War (not yet renamed as WW1), Amelia Earhart flew across the Atlantic, and at the end of the decade in 1929 the Wall Street Crash rang the death knell on the fun and hi jinks of the ‘Lost Generation’ epitomised by F.Scott Fitzgerald’s novella’The Great Gatsby’ (1924).
There is much material here to get my teeth into and I’m excited to be part of this venture.
