PROJECT 26

***SPECIAL J. Ellington Ashton ANNOUNCEMENT REVEALED***

As announced by Roma Gray

P26 – Project 26

26 books, each one representing a different letter in the alphabet, with each letter in turn represented a horror-related concept that starts with that letter.

The owner of JEA, catt dahman, challenged several JEA authors to participate in this grand project. The project consists of an assortment of anthologies, novels, and short story collections. Many of the authors involved in the anthologies did not even know about this, although they were part of a larger contest and won a huge prize (to be announced later)

Over a year in the making, the creative range and scope of this project is both awe inspiring and terrifying. We challenge you to collect them all.

Today we have four new books Backwoods Bonfire a novel by Scott Essel Pratt, Vampz Vendetta an anthology featuring multiple JEA authors and edited by John Ledger, Jurassic Jackaroo: Jasper Junction – a novel by Roma Gray and Lacrimation of the Leviathan a novel by Scott Essel Pratt

What? They’re not being released in order? Damn straight. At JEA we are rebels πŸ˜‰ In two more weeks we’ll launch a few more. How many? Which letters? No one knows

As announced on Facebook by Roma Gray, J. Ellington Ashton Press have finally unveiled P26, which is of course Project 26, where all 26 letters of the alphabet are represented by either a novel, anthology, or collection in horrific fashion.

Unlike other alphabet related projects which have occurred before, this behemoth is not rolling out books in alphabetical order, instead they are going to emerge completely randomly. The first four to materialise are those mentioned in the above statement.

For my own part, I account for four of the overall letters of the twenty six, including helming two anthologies (featuring a host of excellent authors with stories tailored to suit the specific theme of each letter) and two novels (which, like Riders-Plebs 2, are both part of the same story). These two, if you’ve been paying attention on Facebook, Twitter etc. are of course, Carnival of Chaos and Festival of the Flesh.

These books revolve around a group of disgruntled ex-employees of a rustic old Carnival/circus entity who find themselves suddenly out of jobs after a sinister newcomer and his entourage buy out and take over their place of employment with grand designs on turning it into an enormous modern horror themed monster.

Their own grand visions of enacting some type of vengeance go to hell in a rush, when they make some disturbing and grotesque discoveries that suggest there is far more to the Carnival takeover than mere business.

Now they, and a whole slew of associates, innocent friends, and even the police, are going to find themselves hopelessly entangled in the hideous melange of bloodshed, perversion and savage violence of the Festival of the Flesh, the gruesome entity that lurks behind the bright, seemingly innocuous facade of the Carnival of Chaos.

Stay tuned for more information, actual synopsis’s for both books, release updates, and keep on top of all the other books comprising the project as they roll out. As announced above, four of these, including two novellas by Essel Pratt, one from Roma Gray and an anthology edited by John Ledger, have already been released.

*Warning-All the books constituting Project 26 are horror in genre, but fit under the broad blanket of horror, suitable for the vast majority of readers. Carnival and Festival on the other hand, are WetWorks oriented works, which means they dwell mostly in extreme horror realms. Be prepared for extreme violence, explicit sex, offensive material, potential triggers. If some scenes don’t disturb, you may be dead. Or gleefully perverted.
