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.

PRICES (inclusive of Postage & Packing for pre-publication orders as shown)
