You'll Die Laughing - Trading Cards from 1959

Back in 1959, Topps released a set of monster trading cards, illustrated by the EC horror comics/MAD magazine artist Jack Davis. The set was called, “You’ll Die Laughing.”

These trading card images are fun. They made me smile, so I thought I'd share them.

My novel, The Shadow Fabric, doesn't feature any snappy one-liners, nor does it include these kind of ghouls...yet still it belongs in the same category: horror. My debut novel is a supernatural tale of sins, shadows, and the reanimated dead. It's a story churning up an unknown history in witchcraft and the true cause of the Great Fire of London.​

The word 'reanimatedsurely means zombies! I hear you say.

Not quite, the reanimated dead are much, much different and The Shadow Fabric proves how. Indeed, the Fabric proves why...


The Shadow Fabric is available on Kindle pre-order,
to be downloaded direct to your device
for Halloween 2014!
