AN UNHEAVENLY HOST ~ NEW TITLE NEWS

NEW TITLE NEWS ...

AN UNHEAVENLY HOST by C.E. WARD

 

C.E. (Clive) WARD is the author of three Sarob Press ghost story collections ... Vengeful Ghosts (1998), Seven Ghosts and One Other (2010) and Malevolent Visitants (2016). Sarob Press also published Clive’s stand-alone novella Legionnaire (2019). The collections sold out very, very quickly and are now almost impossible to find ... and, when they do appear for sale, command very high prices.

And now comes collection number four ... An Unheavenly Host contains eight distinctly Jamesian ghost stories (four are previously unpublished) ~ here you will discover creepy, dark graveyards, churches, lonely farms, shadowy lanes and places where the past intrudes terribly and vengefully upon the present, and where things best forgotten are also best left alone ... and unspoken of. Fill your glass, stoke the fire, and settle down in your favourite chair for a selection of decidedly pleasing terrors.

The rather gruesome wrap dust jacket art is by, of course, the always and ever brilliant PAUL LOWE.

Stories: Autumn Harvest, The Chapter House Window*, A Wrong Turn, Sins of the Fathers*, Assizes, Captured in Oils*, 11334, and Substantiated Evidence* (*original to this volume)

AN UNHEAVENLY HOST is a Hand Numbered Limited Edition Jacketed Hardcover. Bound in Wibalin Cloth (Fine Linen Style), Foil Blocked to Spine, Lithographically Printed on Quality 80gsm Cream Bookwove Paper, Coloured Endpapers, Section Sewn Binding & Head/Tailbands.

THIS WORLD AND THAT OTHER ~ NEW TITLE NEWS


THIS WORLD AND THAT OTHER

JOHN HOWARD / MARK VALENTINE


This new shared volume offers two original novellas influenced by the supernatural and metaphysical thrillers of “Inkling” Charles Williams (1886-1945).

In “All the Times of the City”, John Howard evokes resonances across time and alternate realities in a London that is by turns familiar and unfamiliar. Caught in a strange spiral, his characters move in a changing City threatened by amoral plotters driven by greed and ambition. But visions of alternative possibilities, of what might have been, still haunt their City too. This is a deeply imagined story that immerses the reader in a tense and troubling drama.

In “Armed for a Day of Glory”, Mark Valentine’s narrator tells us: ‘The Archdeacon thinks I should begin with the Byzantine cloak, the King of Moab with his shewstone, the young archer with the old yew bow, the Dame with the Great Horn, the laird with his lost banner, and Kate with the escaped dragon. They all have their merits and will have their due turn.’ And so they do, in a rip-roaring thriller about an occult conspiracy that only a band of antiquarians and eccentrics can thwart.

This World and That Other follows the duo’s Sarob Press volume Powers and Presences, also inspired by Williams.

Dust-Jacket art by PAUL LOWE.

THIS WORLD AND THAT OTHER is a Hand Numbered Limited Edition Jacketed Hardcover. Lithographically Printed on Quality Cream Bookwove Paper, Bound in Wibalin Cloth (Fine Linen Style), Section Sewn binding, Foil Blocked to Spine, Coloured Endpapers & Head/Tailbands. Approx 128pp including prelims.

Publication currently scheduled for late March/early April 2022.

PRICES  ... (inclusive of Postage and Packing)

UK:  £38.00

EUROPE :  45,00 Euros

USA & Rest of World:

USA $60 (Economy Mail)

USA $70 (Tracked)

STOCK UPDATE ~ FEBRUARY 2022

I have just half a dozen copies remaining of King Satyr by Ron Weighell.

And about eight copies only of Sacred and Profane by Peter Bell.

And a reminder to folk that our December 2020 title, Ill Met By Darkness (four original ‘folkish-horror’ novelettes/novellas by the ever excellent Paul Finch) is still available to order.

Also currently available (but both low stock) is Their Dark & Secret Alchemy (novellas by Richard Gavin, Colin Insole and Damian Murphy) and Legionnaire (a signed stand-alone ghostly novella by C.E. Ward with quite amazing wrap-jacket art by the brilliant Paul Lowe).

News of our late March 2022 title coming very soon.

Cheers, Robert.

KING SATYR HAS ARRIVED

KING SATYR by RON WEIGHELL has arrived.

It really looks and feels great.

I was able to post UK and Book-Dealer pre-orders whilst in Wales last week.

I am now back in France and am busy packing up European, USA and Rest of the World copies ready to start shipping as soon as possible once the Christmas holidays are over (hopefully avoiding the postal madness this season usually brings).

I will, of course, get all your orders posted as fast as one person realistically can. But, please be patient folks, as my post-mistress can only take around 25 packages each day.

I’d like to wish a Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to all ... let’s hope for a better 2022.

And Very Many Thanks everyone for your continued support. Cheers, Robert.
