Here is what Joe has to say about the story for his upcoming Black Labyrinth novella:
“Currently working with Black Labyrinth to create a book of psychological horror, and well, a little bit of overt horror as well. It’s a novella, not a novel, but there will be plenty of room for shadow and sounds, for whatever it takes to scare a reader. What if there is a prison graveyard on an island for the worst of the worst. A place where the unclaimed go. Those who have been executed or died by disease or old age would end up on this island. Taken there by ferry in the middle of the night to be deposited in the ground like rotten rutabaga seeds. And what if on that island are two caretakers, a gravedigger and the ferry man. And with the remains of all that evil there in this dark, lost place in the middle of a great bubble of sea and wind and starry night sky, something goes way damn wrong. And it isn’t at all what you think it is.”
These books are also being illustrated by an amazing artist, Santiago Caruso.
Mr. Caruso was born in 1982, in Quilmes, Argentina.
He is a symbolist and surreal artist, with an avant-garde concept but rooted in the nineteenth century´s decadentism.
He will create original color front cover artwork and four original B&W interior illustrations for Book II based on the story.
