AIP purchases debut horror novel from Chicago horror author
Apocalypse Ink Productions has purchased Famished, the debut novel of author Ivan Ewert. The book is based on Ewert’s web series Vorare, that was previously published by The Edge of Propinquity webzine. Famished, which contains themes of isolation, cannibalism, and familial ties, has given members of the AIP staff shivers and nightmares.
AIP anticipates a late 2012 release.

HALEY – A woman in her early twenties; she bares the bruises and injuries from a recent car accident.
