Corpse Cold: New American Folklore to feature 17 fully illustrated campfire tales.

Corpse Cold: New American Folklore,​ ​a​ ​new​ ​book​ ​inspired​ ​by​ ​horror​ ​from​ ​the​ ​1980s and​ ​1990s,​ ​is​ ​coming​ ​to​ ​Kickstarter​ ​on​ ​Sept​ ​30.

Corpse Cold: New American Folklore features​ ​17​ ​chilling campfire-style​ ​legends,​ ​written​ ​in​ ​homage​ ​to​ ​classic horror​ ​series​ ​like​ ​​Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark and Fear Street,​ ​intended​ ​for​ ​adult​ ​readers.​ ​The​ ​book​ ​is co-written​ ​by​ ​authors​ ​John​ ​Brhel​ ​and​ ​Joe​ ​Sullivan,​ ​and each​ ​story​ ​is​ ​accompanied​ ​by​ ​a​ ​macabre​ ​illustration​ ​by artist​ ​Chad​ ​Wehrle.

“We​ ​grew​ ​up​ ​watching​ ​​Twilight Zone and​ ​​Are You Afraid of the Dark? and​ ​reading​ ​books​ ​like​ ​Washington​ ​Irving’s The Sketch Book and​ ​various​ ​American​ ​horror anthologies​,”​ ​said​ ​Brhel.​ ​“The​ ​unsettling​ ​stories​ ​and​ ​imagery​ ​found​ ​in​ ​books​ ​like​ ​​Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark made​ ​an​ ​impact​ ​on​ ​Joe,​ ​Chad,​ ​and​ ​myself,​ ​all​ ​the​ ​way​ ​back​ ​in elementary​ ​school.​ ​In​ ​fact,​ ​those​ ​books​ ​are​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​biggest​ ​reasons​ ​why​ ​we​ ​write today.​ ​With​ ​​Corpse Cold,​ ​we​ ​hope​ ​to​ ​provide​ ​that​ ​same​ ​sort​ ​of​ ​reading​ ​experience​ ​for people​ ​like​ ​us​ ​–​ ​readers​ ​who​ ​are​ ​grown​ ​up,​ ​but​ ​still​ ​nostalgic​ ​for​ ​creepy​ ​art​ ​and​ ​new takes​ ​on​ ​well,​ ​and​ ​lesser​ ​known,​ ​urban​ ​legends​ ​and​ ​folktales.”


Brhel​ ​and​ ​Sullivan​ ​have​ ​co-written​ ​several​ ​books​ ​of​ ​paranormal​ ​and​ ​weird​ ​fiction, including​ ​​Tales From Valleyview Cemetery (2015)​ ​and​ ​​At The Cemetery Gates: Year One (2016).​ ​They​ ​are​ ​launching​ ​their​ ​Kickstarter​ ​campaign​ ​to​ ​cover​ ​production​ ​costs​ ​for the​ ​book,​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​ ​artist​ ​fees.
