"NO MATTER WHAT, YOU'LL FIND OUT HERE:
WHEN THE NEEDLE DROPS..."
A cannibal DJ revels in the wasteland, his radio show a desperate attempt to connect with a dying world. These yarns were spun and passed onto him from a time before; his memory an opaque lens into generation’s lost. These cautionary tales may no longer apply to the everyday survival of those still left with beating hearts, but the few still left all know that they are far better off in the cruel wastes of this new world - alone - than within the stories told by waning breath, beneath the crushing drop of the needle…
The Needle Drops… (TND) is a horror anthology containing a selection of contributed Short Fiction, Flash Fiction and Poetry.
Weaved between a varied selection of fiction from our contributors is Desert Drive - a graphic comic strip illustrated by Thom Simpson that begins a story told across volumes, crafting the mythology and introducing our anthologies' host: a cannibal radio DJ.
Alongside this is our Official Soundtrack, featuring eight original tracks, two of which will be crafted with our contributors fiction in mind.
