I'm thrilled to announce this event I have been working on with Lee Murray & Boneface Tavern as part of VERB Wellington.

'Dark Clouds: In Search of Aotearoa Gothic', Saturday, 11 November 2023, 3:00 pm 5:00 pm at BoneFace Tavern, 13 Pirie Street Wellington, Wellington.

Enjoy an afternoon of literary darkness, beginning with a panel discussion of what makes our Kiwi horror unique, moderated by Dan Rabarts, with Denver Grenell, Lee Murray, Tim Jones, and Kathryn Burnett. Afterwards, Debbie Cowens, Del Gibson, and Jacqui Greaves will join the panellists for poetry and story readings from the new anthology Remains to be Told: Dark Tales of Aotearoa.

This event is free, and there is no need to register. Just show up! Books will be on sale from the featured authors on the day.

Remains to be Told: Dark Tales of Aotearoa is out October 1st from Clan Destine Press. The anthology is mired in the shifting landscape of the long white cloud, and deeply imbued with the myth, culture, and character of Aotearoa-New Zealand.

Curated by multi-award-winning author-editor Lee Murray, the anthology opens with a foreword by six-time Bram Stoker Awards®-winner and former HWA President Lisa Morton; and includes a brutal, lyrical poem by Kiwi resident Neil Gaiman.

Laced with intrigue, suspense, horror, and even a touch of humour, the anthology brings together stories and poems by some of the best homegrown and Kiwi-at-heart voices working in dark fiction today.

Remains to be Told features stories and poems by Dan Rabarts, Kirsten McKenzie, Celine Murray, Kathryn Burnett, Helena Claudia, Marty Young, Gina Cole, William Cook, Del Gibson, Paul Mannering, Tim Jones, Owen Marshall, Denver Grenell, Bryce Stevens, Debbie Cowens, Lee Murray, Jacqui Greaves, Tracie McBride, and Nikky Lee.
