John Skipp’s Fungasm Press poised to release new audiobook version of HAUNT.
Author,journo, filmmaker and horror legend John Skipp‘s literary imprint Fungasm Press just announced the release of their first deluxe audiobook and they’ve locked author/filmmaker and performer Laura Lee Bahr’s chilling book HAUNT as their guinea pig.
From the press release:
The story of a mysteriously murdered young woman and the men whose lives she taunts beyond death is described as a brain-twisting Bizarro noir hall of mirrors. And the audiobook, performed by Bahr and a talented team of actors, brings added dimensions to her evocative prose. Using gorgeous music, jarring fx, and cunning sound manipulation, it’s a lush and unusually engaging presentation.
Haunt is the reason I formed Fungasm Press, says Skipp. It’s a brilliant book that doesn’t fit any neat category. So funny, so sad, so sweet and strange and creepy and genuinely one-of-a-kind. I knew Laura could read the hell out of it. And she does. But adding those extra layers took it to the next level of coolness.
The way Haunt continues to incarnate kills me, Bahr says. Directing and reading the audiobook was like getting a new life with the characters. Then last summer, it was released in Spanish by Orciny Press under the title Fantasma, and I got to travel there and participate in readings in Spanish. It’s like the ghost that keeps on giving.
HAUNT is now out on Audible, iTunes and Amazon. Check it out!
