The Boke of the Divill by Reggie Oliver Available on May 2nd 2017 from Dark Regions Press
The new weird fiction novel The Boke of the Divill by Reggie Oliver will be available for preorder for the first time in the upcoming May 2nd 2017 Cthulhu Mythos Books Campaign in both ebook and trade paperback formats from Dark Regions Press.
Description
The ancient city of Morchester with its Dreaming Spires, its gently flowing river Orr, winding through water meadows, its fine old cathedral and close where the rooks caw in immemorial elms as they have done for centuries…
A tranquil English scene – but is it? Under the surface dark and terrible things are stirring. A serial killer is on the loose… The Dean is having guilty nightmares… A long dead Bishop of Morchester appears in his choir stall at evensong… A mysterious ring disappears from the cathedral museum… A famous composer is beginning his long descent into Hell…
Could all these events be connected with a television crew, fronted by a celebrated academic, who are conducting a very public search for THE BOKE OF THE DIVILL?
Do they know the terrible, immortal danger they are in?
One man does: the mysterious Mr. Basil Valentine. But without the help of young Emma Hartley – on her first job in television – can he – will he – save them?

By turns thrilling, witty, fantastic, horrifying and strangely profound, Reggie Oliver’s new novel has all the elements that make him, according to superstar and connoisseur of weird literature Barry Humphries, “by miles the best living exponent of the spooky yarn.”
The Boke of the Divill by Reggie Oliver will be available on Tuesday, May 2nd 2017 in the Cthulhu Mythos Books Indiegogo Campaign from Dark Regions Press.

Re: The Boke of the Divill

Somehow, I had gotten it in my head that it was going to be released on April 2. I was literally counting down the hours.

LOL getting older is a carnival ride all in its own!

Re: The Boke of the Divill

On a related note, their wording is kinda weird. Announcement page for their new crowdfunding campaign makes it look like the included books will be available from the start of their campaign, whereas individual book pages, like the one I linked, made it clear that they will be available for PREORDER.

Re: The Boke of the Divill

Were those interior illustrations for The Boke... ever commissioned in the first place? I saw no mention of them on Caruso's site.

Re: The Boke of the Divill

I was referring to those I saw on the Dark Renaissance website when it resurfaced for its short-lived resurrection.

Those were drawn by Oliver himself.

I really liked that press, but had grown wary and never preordered.

Dark Renaissance still has a presence on Facebook (caveat emptor) and Oliver's drawings abide.
