NEW TITLE NEWS ~ BY NO MORTAL HAND


NEW TITLE NEWS

BY NO MORTAL HAND by DANIEL McGACHEY

BY NO MORTAL HAND is a collection of antiquarian ghost stories in which ancient windows look out on nightmare scenes, bizarre clocks chime hidden hours, spectral forms haunt nocturnal forests and distant shorelines, rare books conceal terrifying contents, and dreadful secrets and dire fates are dredged up from unhallowed resting places. Whether through certain reminiscences of Dr Lawrence, a folklorist unable entirely to escape the shadow of his own uncanny speciality, or in a trio of tales that serve as sequels and prequels to the classic original works of the most acclaimed writer of ghost stories in the English language, M.R. James, or by delving into the writing and peculiar legacy of one of James’s more neglected and long-forgotten contemporaries, Dr H.S. Grace, BY NO MORTAL HAND is a tribute to the early twentieth century’s golden age of supernatural storytelling.

Contents: “By No Mortal Hand” “Ex Libris: Lufford” “If You Don’t Come to Me, I’ll Come to You” “Some Personalia About Dr Lawrence” “Ting-a-Ling-a-Ling” “Night Work” “Figures on a Beach” “From Out of the Dark” “Ghostly Studies, Dr Grace, and the Diodati Society” “In a Distant Vista” “The Deliverance of Dr Peacock” “Afterword ~ Lurking in the Shadows”

BY NO MORTAL HAND is a Hand Numbered Limited Edition Jacketed Hardcover.
Bound in Wibalin Cloth (Fine Linen Style), Foil Blocked to Spine, Fine White 80gsm Paper, Coloured Endpapers, Sewn binding & Head/Tailbands. Approx 224pp including prelims etc.
Full Colour Dust-Jacket Art by Paul Lowe.
Publication currently scheduled for December 2018.

Prices (inclusive of Postage & Packing)
UK: UK £32.50
Europe: 45,00 euros
USA & Rest of World: US $60.00

A GHOSTS & SCHOLARS BOOK OF FOLK HORROR HAS ARRIVED


The much anticipated “A GHOSTS & SCHOLARS BOOK OF FOLK HORROR” has just touched down here in hot and sunny France and I am currently busy checking, numbering and packing all the pre-ordered copies.
This one has been absolutely flying and is already a VERY LOW STOCK item with only just over a dozen copies left, and I would expect these few to now sell pretty quickly.
I’m hoping to get all pre-ordered copies to the Post Office on or around 24/25 September.
Rumours abound (apparently) about my next title ... so, here you go ~ hopefully out before Christmas will be a bumper collection of ghostly antiquarian stories by Daniel McGachey. I’m just putting the finishing touches to this one and aiming to “announce” details around mid-October.
Cheers, Robert.
