NEW TITLE NEWS: A GHOSTS & SCHOLARS BOOK OF FOLK HORROR


NEW TITLE NEWS

A GHOSTS & SCHOLARS BOOK OF FOLK HORROR

Sarob Press is delighted to present a superb collection of Jamesian Folk Horror tales. Ten have been selected from the pages of editor Rosemary Pardoe’s journals Ghosts & Scholars and The Ghosts & Scholars MR James Newsletter  ~ and seven are newly written especially for this volume. The previously published stories date from as early as 1980 and as recent as 2015. And here you’ll find Folk Horror in a variety of expected and unexpected settings, from ancient burial mounds in Wiltshire and East Anglia to a park in Liverpool, by way of ruins in Ireland, and the countryside/villages of the Lake District, Dorset, Derbyshire and an unspecified southern county. In the new stories the settings range further afield and include Scotland and Greece. In one case, while the setting is Scotland, the Folk Horror comes terrifyingly from pre-war Germany.
Authors: Michael Chislett, Chico Kidd, Ramsey Campbell, Jacqueline Simpson, C.E. Ward, Philip Thompson, Terry Lamsley, Kay Fletcher, Geoffrey Warburton, Carole Tyrrell and (the new stories) Gail-Nina Anderson, Helen Grant, Tom Johnstone, Christopher Harman, John Llewellyn Probert, David A.

REVENANTS & MALEDICTIONS HAS ARRIVED


Peter Bell’s Revenants & Maledictions has touched down safely here in hot and sunny France.
It’ll take me three or four days to check, number and pack pre-orders ... I’ll then get all these posted early next week.
Thanks everyone for your patience ... only around 25 copies (print run 275) remaining.
And all is now in place for A Ghosts & Scholars Book of Folk Horror ... I aim to be announcing this one in the next couple of weeks for an early September publication.
Cheers, Rob.

NEW PETER BELL COLLECTION ~ UPDATE


I had hoped to get the new Peter Bell collection printed and posted out by around now.
However, my father sadly passed away at the end of May and I’ve had to spend the last few weeks in Wales dealing with matters and, of course, arranging and attending the funeral.
I’ve just arrived back home and expect Revenants & Maledictions to arrive from my printer very shortly.
I’m sorry for the short delay publishing this title and am now aiming to get all pre-orders posted by around 10/11 July.
Many thanks everyone for your understanding at what’s been a very difficult time ... I hope the slight delay won’t cause anyone too much of a problem.
Cheers, Robert.

REVENANTS & MALEDICTIONS: NEW TITLE NEWS


NEW TITLE NEWS

REVENANTS & MALEDICTIONS
Ten Tales of the Uncanny
PETER BELL

A graveyard in the Outer Hebrides. The leafy suburbs of Oxford. The Black Cuillin ridge. A strange museum in Iceland. A Manx fairy glen. A deserted Scottish isle. A Welsh woodland mansion. A haunted cottage on Skye. A pagan site on the Wirral Peninsula. A forbidden estate on Mull. These are the settings for excursions into the uncanny. They are largely inspired by real places where the author has felt a nuance of, in that inimitable German word, the Unheimlich. A fabulous new collection of ten tales (six previously unpublished*) from the author of A Certain Slant of Light and Phantasms (both Sarob Press) and Strange Epiphanies (The Swan River Press) is sure to hit the right note with aficionados of the supernatural tale. And the previously published “The Executioner”, “The Island” & “Sithean” have been substantially re-written for this volume.
Foreword by the Author and a superbly atmospheric wrap jacket painting by the ever brilliant Paul Lowe.
Stories: “Apotheosis*” “The House*” “The Executioner” “Many Shades of Red*” “The Virgin Mary Well*” “The Island” “Wild Wales*” “Sithean” “Blackberry Time” & “The Robing of the Bride*”

REVENANTS & MALEDICTIONS is a Hand Numbered Limited Edition Jacketed Hardcover.
Bound in Wibalin Cloth (Fine Linen Style), Foil Blocked to Spine, Premium 80gsm Cream Bookwove, Coloured endpapers, Sewn binding & head/tailbands.
Full Colour Dust-Jacket Art by Paul Lowe.
Publication currently scheduled for early June 2018.

THE WHITE ROAD ~ REVIEWS

THE WHITE ROAD has been reviewed at David Longhorn’s excellent Supernatural Tales blog ... visit http://suptales.blogspot.fr/2017/12/the-white-road-review.html  to check out what he has to say about this one.
Des Lewis has also reviewed the book at https://dflewisreviews.wordpress.com/2017/12/16/the-white-road-ron-weighell/
Sarob Press friend Boyd White has asked me to mention the following which may be of some interest:
In the recently published 20th anniversary edition of “The White Road”, Ron Weighell mentions the limited fine press edition of “The Four Strengths of Shadow” that was published by Chad Oness’ Sutton Hoo Press under the Alpenhouse Apparitions imprint.   Although sheets for 100 copies were printed, only 50 copies were actually bound, 22 of which were available for sale. Genre specialist John Knott acquired a number of copies, and Ron signed each copy. Copies of this book are currently available directly from John Knott at his website. For further details visit www.jwkbooks.com/pages/books/20244/ron-weighell/the-four-strengths-of-shadow
I’m aiming to announce our next title in the next week or so.
Cheers, Robert.
