NEW TITLE NEWS ~ PAGAN TRIPTYCH

NEW TITLE NEWS

PAGAN TRIPTYCH

ROMANCES OF THE WHITE DAY, a volume in tribute to Arthur Machen by three (new) impostors, appeared from Sarob Press in May 2015. Rosemary Pardoe (in ‘The Ghosts & Scholars MR James Newsletter’) called the volume “... the most consistently excellent collection of stories I’ve read for years.”
Encouraged by the success of the Machen homage the impostors turned their thoughts toward ALGERNON BLACKWOOD ... PAGAN TRIPTYCH is the rather fabulous result. Here are three spectacular novelettes inspired by the writings of ‘The Ghost Man’.
Once again each ‘impostor’ has added an afterword to their story. And Paul Lowe has provided a splendidly evocative full colour wrap jacket painting and a deliciously creepy B&W illustration for the signature page.
No further preamble is required ... you all know this one won’t be around for long!

Ron Weighell ... THE LETTER KILLETH ... a tale of ancient secrets, a book of shadows and dark magic
John Howard ... IN THE CLEARING ... the mystery of trees, new beginnings and the truth of things
Mark Valentine ... THE FIG GARDEN ... a childhood game, strange rituals and pagan worship

PAGAN TRIPTYCH is a Lithographically Printed, Hand Numbered Limited Edition Hardcover, Bound in Wibalin (fine linen style), Foil Blocked to spine, Colour Dust-Jacket with wrap cover art, 80gsm Munken Premium Cream Bookwove, 16pp Section Sewn Binding, Head & Tailbands, Ribbon Marker & Coloured Endpapers. Tipped-in SIGNATURE PAGE on fine ivory parchment paper with extra B&W art and SIGNED by all three authors.

Publication currently scheduled for May 2016.

NEW TITLE NEWS ~ CE WARD ~ MALEVOLENT VISITANTS

NEW TITLE NEWS

MALEVOLENT VISITANTS by C.E. WARD

Clive Ward is the author of the Sarob Press collections Vengeful Ghosts (1998) and Seven Ghosts and One Other (2010). Both these collections sold out very very quickly and are almost impossible to find. Now Mr Ward is back with another eight ghostly stories ... MALEVOLENT VISITANTS is likely to sell out just as quickly as his earlier collections, so don’t miss out, order this very special volume now! Those familiar with Mr Ward’s earlier books will know exactly what to expect. Those new to his writing will discover a collection of superbly plotted and researched Jamesian ghost stories (including the authorised completion of a fragment by M.R. James himself). The wrap cover art and signature sheet art by the ever wonderful Paul Lowe compliment a book to be enjoyed during the long and lonely hours after nightfall with a glass of something special to calm the nerves – just make sure to lock all the doors and windows. A traditional roaring log fire is, of course, entirely optional. Be prepared for a restless night when every small sound will have you staring into the deeply shadowed corners hoping not to see any of the terrors darkly lurking within the pages of this book emerging to take their vengeance on the unsuspecting reader.
The stories: “At Dusk” “The Mound” “Merfield Hall” “The Return” “Squire Thorneycroft*” “One over the Twelve”
The House of Wonders*” & “The Gift” Includes an “Afterword by the author” *previously unpublished
Sarob Press are really pushing the boat out for this one ... Malevolent Visitants is a Lithographically Printed, Hand Numbered Limited Edition Hardcover, Bound in wibalin (fine linen style), Foil Blocked to spine, Colour Dust-Jacket with wrap cover art, 80gsm Munken Premium Cream Bookwove, 16pp Section Sewn Binding, Head & Tailbands, Ribbon Marker & Coloured Endpapers.
