Sit back, check there’s nothing hiding in the wardrobe and feast your eyes on the creepy animated cover for Thomas Olde Heuvelt’s HEX.
The cover was designed by the incredible Leo Nickolls and you can see more of his work here.
HEX is Hugo award-winning author Thomas Olde Heuvelt’s English language debut and we publish it on April 28th 2016. We have lots more frights in store for you, but until then here’s the synopsis:
Whoever is born here, is doomed to stay until death. Whoever comes to stay, never leaves.
Welcome to Black Spring, the seemingly picturesque Hudson Valley town haunted by the Black Rock Witch, a seventeenth-century woman whose eyes and mouth are sewn shut. Blind and silenced, she walks the streets and enters homes at will. She stands next to children’s beds for nights on end. So accustomed to her have the townsfolk become that they often forget she’s there. Or what a threat she poses. Because if the stitches are ever cut open, the story goes, the whole town will die.
The curse must not be allowed to spread. The elders of Black Spring have used high-tech surveillance to quarantine the town. Frustrated with being kept in lockdown, the town’s teenagers decide to break the strict regulations and go viral with the haunting. But, in so doing, they send the town spiralling into a dark nightmare.
