NEW TITLE NEWS: THE FACES AT YOUR SHOULDER

THE FACES AT YOUR SHOULDER by STEVE DUFFY

Where are the monsters?  Sometimes they’re right behind you.

In this new collection of six novelettes – three are wholly original to this volume – Steve Duffy invites us to look over our shoulders, and asks us whether we recognise the faces that we see.  Some of them are all too human, some are animals, and some are like nothing we’ve ever seen – yet. 

In the snowy wastes of the Yukon and the mining country of Appalachia an age-old terror is unwittingly unleashed…

After-hours at the Pacific View diner, meet a glamorous, mysterious film star and uncover a monstrous bargain…

In Streatham or in Ethiopia, you must be careful what you wish for – very careful – or anything might happen…

Christmas is a time for family, and that means dark secrets, desperate desires and occult constructs…

Down at the zoo something is stirring: the animals know, but the warders won’t realise until it’s already too late…

Young love blossoms at the New York World’s Fair, but the future has its own agenda…

Steve’s previous Sarob Press collection (Finding Yourself in the Dark) sold out its print run within a few weeks of publication.  Don’t risk missing out – order your copy of The Faces at Your Shoulder now.  Before the monsters disappear...

Stories: “The Oram County Whoosit” “The Soul is a Bird*” “In the Days Before the Monsters*” “The Psychomanteum” “The Lion’s Den” and “Futureboro*” *original to this volume. “Foreword” and “Notes on the Stories” by the author.

FOLLIES AND GROTTOES ~ SOLD OUT

THE GHOSTS & SCHOLARS BOOK OF FOLLIES AND GROTTOES is already (and rather quickly despite an increased print run on previous GHOSTS & SCHOLARS volumes) SOLD OUT.

Thanks everyone for your continued support.

Cheers, Robert.

ARRIVAL ... FOLLIES AND GROTTOES

THE GHOSTS & SCHOLARS BOOK OF FOLLIES AND GROTTOES has finally touched down and, with luck (and a good following wind), all ordered copies will have shipped by the end of this coming week. Or just after … 

Already a VERY Low Stock item despite an increased (400 copy) print run.

In other news:

SACRED AND PROFANE by PETER BELL is now SOLD OUT.

THEIR DARK & SECRET ALCHEMY (novellas) by RICHARD GAVIN, COLIN INSOLE and DAMIAN MURPHY is, I’m afraid, also now SOLD OUT.

THIS WORLD AND THAT OTHER by JOHN HOWARD/MARK VALENTINE is, you guessed it, SOLD OUT.

Very Low (4 copies) Stock on AN UNHEAVENLY HOST by C.E. WARD.

Cheers, Robert.

UPDATE: THE GHOSTS & SCHOLARS BOOK OF FOLLIES AND GROTTOES

THE GHOSTS & SCHOLARS BOOK OF FOLLIES AND GROTTOES is, at last, en-route to me and on target to begin shipping in around ten/fourteen days or so.

Very sorry folks for the delay … there were a few problems at the printers.

I’d ask everyone to please be patient … it’s just me and, when I head to Wales this coming weekend (or just after), I’ll need to check, number, pack and post around 370 books. It’ll take me a couple of weeks or so to get all done and dusted.

But, many thanks, as always, for your understanding.

And, as is usual with the Sarob Press GHOSTS & SCHOLARS books, this one is selling very fast (even with a bigger print run) and is not likely to be “in print” for too long.

Keep safe everyone.

Cheers, Robert.

NEW TITLE NEWS: THE GHOSTS & SCHOLARS BOOK OF FOLLIES AND GROTTOES

Sarob Press is spookily delighted to present thirteen eerie spectral tales (eight are wholly original to this volume) where the authors have taken, as inspiration, the theme of follies and grottoes. In her introduction Rosemary Pardoe tells us: ‘Follies may be fake temples, belvederes, pyramids, obelisks and towers, sham castles and ruins, eyecatchers, faux druid circles and hermitages (with or without fake hermit!), and many other things besides. Folly grottoes are often cut out of rock, and decorated, frequently with shells (such as the one at Margate, which is famously often claimed to be genuinely pre-Christian).’

And the dark and ghostly stories ... ‘range widely, from mysterious towers and classical temples to hidden grottoes; from revivals of the worship of ancient gods to unexpected distortions of space and time’.

All five of the previous Sarob Press (and Rosemary Pardoe edited) Ghosts & Scholars anthologies sold out very quickly … so get your order in early to avoid disappointment as this one will, surely, quickly go the way of the others.

Contents: “Introduction” by Rosemary Pardoe, “Baines’ Folly” by Christopher Harman, “Lady Elphinstone’s Folly” by John Ward, “The Ptolemaic System” by David Longhorn, “The Crooked Rook” by Rick Kennett, “Sweet Folly” by Gail-Nina Anderson, “Branks’s Folly” by C.E. Ward, “Folly” by Sam Dawson, “Minter’s Folly” by Chico Kidd, “Mothrot Hall” by Katherine Haynes, “‘Father’ O’Flynn and the Fressingfold Friezes” by Tina Rath, “Mad Lutanist” by Mark Valentine, “When I Heard My Days Before Me” by John Howard & “And Music Shall Untune the Sky” by S.A. Rennie

THE GHOSTS & SCHOLARS BOOK OF FOLLIES AND GROTTOES is a Hand Numbered Limited Edition Jacketed Hardcover. Bound in Wibalin Cloth (Fine Linen Style), Foil Blocked to Spine, Lithographically Printed on Quality 80gsm Cream Bookwove Paper, Coloured Endpapers, Section Sewn Binding & Head/Tailbands.

Approx 192pp including prelims etc. Fabulous wrap jacket art by the ever brilliant Paul Lowe.

Publication currently scheduled for mid September 2022.

AN UNHEAVENLY HOST HAS ARRIVED

AN UNHEAVENLY HOST has arrived and looks really great ... already very few copies left.
Folk in the UK will have got their copies already and I have now almost finished packing up and posting European, USA and Rest of World pre-ordered (and just ordered) copies … most have shipped and I hope to ship the last few in the next couple of days.
And I am currently working hard to finish off the Rosemary Pardoe edited, and eagerly awaited, THE GHOSTS & SCHOLARS BOOK OF FOLLIES AND GROTTOES for an early September publication. If all goes to plan I’ll be aiming to announce this one once I’ve finished posting all ordered copies of AN UNHEAVENLY HOST and taken a week or so of deserved rest.
Take care folks. Cheers, Robert.
