International Bestselling Author Rick Hautala To Be Featured in Issue 6


Shroud's first national retail issue, #6 will feature a fantastic line up of talented authors (cover above) and I will be sure to post the specifics very very soon. However, I wanted to take a moment and share the fact that a rare unpublished short story from Rick Hautala will be in Issue #6.

Rick has written and published over 90 novels and short stories since the early 1980s. Many of his books have been translated to other languages and sold internationally. His third novel, 1986's Night Stone, became an international best-seller, selling well over one million copies. His short story collection, Bedbugs (1999) was selected by Barnes and Noble as one of the most distinguished horror publications of the year 2000.

Rick Hautala also writes screenplays. His most recent 2008 adaptation of award winning author Kealan Patrick Burke's "Peepers" is currently on the film festival circuit. He also wrote the screenplay for the 2007 short film Dead@17 based on Josh Howard's graphic novel series of the same name.

The cover's artist, Steven C. Gilberts, has worked with DARK WISDOM magazine, Chaosium, and Mythos Books, among others. It's great to see his work showcased in SHROUD magazine.
