Good friend Steve from Oz Horror Con will be publishing a collection of short stories in 2017, the working title of which is “Between the Tracks … Tales from the Ghost Train”.

A public call for submissions via social media and on our web site, www.OzHorrorCon.com has led to a trainload of short stories, ideas, links to urban myths and supernatural tales involving trains and trams, trolleys and tracks of all kind. Behind the scenes, we also reached out to established horror writers to provide archetypes and best-of-breed tales of track-related terror. We would now like to announce two anchor writers for the anthology, and while neither writer requires an introduction to the horror community, we wanted to offer a brief note about these maestros of horror.

Clive Barker – The Midnight Meat Train

We’ve selected Clive Barker’s tale The Midnight Meat Train as an archetype. A highly visceral story at one level, Midnight Meat Train is also concerned with our protagonist’s own journey in a city renowned for its ruthless, uncaring nature. The train itself, the underground, the tunnels, and its final destination all provide a suitably thematic arena for exploring paranoia, entrapment, claustrophobia, gruesome murders and ultimately, the unveiling of deep mysteries.

Ramsey Campbell – to be announced

Ramsey Campbell is undisputed grand-master of paranoiac, creepy tales of insidious terror. He has won many major awards and received numerous accolades over several decades. We’re excitedly reading through several of Ramsey’s tales now to decide which story best aligns with the character of ‘Between the Tracks.’
