Loads of Book News

April 29th, 2002 • Posted in News |

WHITE AND OTHER TALES OF RUIN is now available for pre-order from Amazon.com (trade hardcover and trade paperback) and direct from Night Shade Books for the limited edition. It’s due out this coming July, and the limited edition will have a bonus chapbook which I’m working on right now … and enjoying like hell! It’ll contain a companion piece to each of the six novellas in the collection, short tales focussing on people or events which the main characters from those novellas could have influenced. Can’t say too much more without spoiling it … but I think this is going to be fun.

CURRENT WORK – got lots on at the moment, and everything seems to have a deadline for the end of May! Five minutes before typing this I finished a novella for a forthcoming Peter Crowther-edited novella collection from Cemetery Dance, called Foreboding. The novella is called IN THE VALLEY, WHERE BELLADONNA GROWS, and it’s something I’m extremely proud of. Weird, surreal, yes …. but I think it’s good. Just hope Pete thinks so too.

Next up is a short story for THE HORROR OVER BAKER STREET, the Holmes anthology being edited by John Pelan. And the second novella in the Apocalypse Quartet for PS Publishing, CHANGING OF FACES. And my next portion for the collaborative novella I’m writing with Pete Crowther, INTO THE WILD GREEN YONDER (due from Cemetery Dance). All that, and I’ve also been asked to write an introduction for the reissue of the Algernon Blackwood collection INCREDIBLE ADVENTURES from Stark House Press, which will be a real honour. More news on all of these, of course, as and when …….

Finally, THE DEAD OF NIGHT: DUSK and DAWN. These two dark fantasy novels are set to take up a huge portion of my time over the next year or two: writing, promoting, readings etc, as well as daily updates for the website dedicated to both books, which should be launching very soon. I’ll be announcing the URL once the site is ready to go. There’ll be extracts, competitions, a message board, art gallery, a journal updated daily … more … and it’s going to look sweet!

Thanks for listening!
