... a seemingly ordinary warehouse where the secret things and strange desires stored within are far, far from ordinary

... and 8 other superlative tales set in London, in Eastern Europe, the Wild West of America, the North Wales coast and more.

STOCK/TITLE UPDATE

I’m hoping to be ready to announce the first very exciting Sarob Press title of 2021 (a 12-story collection by Shirley Jackson Award winner Steve Duffy) within around two or three weeks. 

Watch this space as they say.

In the meantime, just 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 in stock and 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 ~ and terrifying (see here) ~ wrap-jacket art by the brilliant Paul Lowe).

Take care and keep safe everyone.

Cheers, Robert.

RON WEIGHELL R.I.P.

Very saddened to hear that Ron Weighell has passed away.

A friend, a lovely man and a brilliant and wonderful writer who will be much missed.

I am extremely proud to have published his story collections “Summonings” and the revised “The White Road”, and three novellas for the shared volumes (with John Howard and Mark Valentine) “Romances of the White Day”, “Pagan Triptych” and “From Ancient Ravens”.

My truly heartfelt and sincere condolences to his wife Fran and to all his family and friends.

R.I.P. Ron.

Keep safe and well everyone, Robert.

ILL MET BY DARKNESS by Paul Finch has touched down here in cold and rainy northern France and it truly looks splendid. I’m really pleased with this one.

Check out the photo.

I’ve been busy checking, hand numbering and packing pre-orders ~ most have now shipped and I have just a very few to take to the post office early next week.

Copies are still available if you’re sitting on the fence. Full details below.


As always, keep safe and well.


Cheers, Robert.
