“The Old Man of the Woods” by Reggie Oliver ... a new home in rural France, legends of the misty past, and a weird haunting story of the dark and deeply sinister woods.
“Cropmarks” by Derek John ... an Irish setting for a modern tale of witchcraft, dark ceremonies, a centuries-old place of worship, strange discoveries and a malevolent curse.

WHERE SHADOWS GATHER HAS ARRIVED


All 225 copies of WHERE SHADOWS GATHER by Michael Chislett have touched down here in sunny France and I’m busy checking, numbering and packing pre-ordered copies and hope to have individual orders posted before the end of this month. Dealer copies will ship from Wales toward the end of next week.
This one looks great (see photo) and, already, only around 25 copies remain for sale.
Assuming all goes to plan, “THE PALE ILLUMINATIONS” is next up and I hope to be able to share details of this exciting four author project in a couple of weeks or so. Again, this is another with quite brilliant (Paul Lowe) dust-jacket art.
And, hopefully coming up before the end of this year, is a very special volume from Sarob Press favourite, and author of three superb collections ~ C.E. Ward. I’ll post details of this one in good time as I’m guessing that, as with Clive’s previous books, it’ll prove extremely popular and probably sell out very quickly.
Kind regards, Robert.

NEW TITLE NEWS

WHERE SHADOWS GATHER ~ MICHAEL CHISLETT

Sarob Press is delighted to announce the publication of Where Shadows Gather ~ a new collection of ghostly stories by Michael Chislett. Michael’s first Sarob Press collection, In the City of Ghosts, won the Dracula Society “Children of the Night” award and has long been out of print. This new bumper collection presents a further thirteen stories (five previously unpublished*), again mostly set in or around the author’s fictional London borough of Milford, and the ghost-strewn suburb of Mabbs End – although a couple of stories do venture overseas.
Ghosts, vampires, black magicians & other unusual terrors ... not everything is as it might, at first, seem to be, as darkness and light conspire to draw the reader in to where shadows gather, and the mist rises from the Thames, and creatures of the night walk and hunt, and haunt the foggy pathways and streets of the sinister city.

Stories:  “Downriver*” “In the Garden*” “Only the Dead know Deptford” “Mara” “The Extras*” “The Subliminals” “Endor” “The Whistle Thing” “Redriff” “The Raggy Girl*” “The Coast Guard” “Those that Come from the Air” and “The Snow Queen*” 

WHERE SHADOWS GATHER is a Hand Numbered Limited Edition Jacketed Hardcover.  Bound in Wibalin Cloth (Fine Linen Style), Foil Blocked to Spine, Lithographically Printed on Quality White 80gsm Paper, Coloured Endpapers, Section Sewn Binding & Head/Tailbands. Approx 224pp including prelims etc.
Wrap Dust-Jacket Art by Paul Lowe.
Publication currently scheduled for early July 2019.

Prices (inclusive of Postage & Packing)
UK: UK £33.95
Europe: 45,00 euros
USA & Rest of World: US $60.00

THEIR DARK & SECRET ALCHEMY HAS ARRIVED


THEIR DARK & SECRET ALCHEMY has arrived safely from my book-printer. I’m really pleased with this one ~ the wrap dust-jacket art is gorgeous (my humble opinion) and the interior design came out just as I hoped.
All pre-ordered copies have shipped and should be touching down shortly (if they haven’t already). Allow some extra time as Easter has invariably slowed the postal system for some.
Around 30-35 of 250 copies left.
The first review has appeared courtesy of Des Lewis at: https://dflewisreviews.wordpress.com/2019/04/16/their-dark-secret-alchemy/
Final proofing of the texts of my next title (which I hope to announce early next month) is coming along nicely and I am currently aiming for a late June or (more likely) early July publication. Sarob Press favourite Paul Lowe is working on the wrap jacket art.
Kind regards, Robert.
