Announcing SYLVAN DREAD: TALES OF PASTORAL DARKNESS

Good evening, denizens of TLO. I'm very pleased to report that, at long last, my fifth collection of supernatural fiction is set for release in June 2016 by the prestigious esoteric publisher Three Hands Press.

Entitled Sylvan Dread: Tales of Pastoral Darkness, this book is a meditation on daemonic and living Nature — the place where all dreams and nightmares begin. In this isolate copse readers will witness the excavation of abominations long earthbound, the twilight of the rational, and the forgotten violence of the Dionysian Rite.

Sylvan Dread will be available in three editions: a Special Edition, a hardcover with dustjacket, and a trade paperback.

Information and pre-order options can be found here.

With thanks,
Richard Gavin

That's great news. I really enjoyed At Fear's Altar, and the stories that have been popping up lately in this or that anthology (like "tinder row") have been a good read. Looking forward to this new collection.

Hi Spiral - We are looking into an eventual electronic version, yes. I'm not sure exactly when the e-book would be available, but it is a strong possibility for the future.

Thank you for the interest.

Re: Announcing SYLVAN DREAD: TALES OF PASTORAL DARKNESS

Advance praise for Sylvan Dread:

"In medieval times scholars spoke of 'Natura naturans'--- Nature reveling in her sheer fecundity and pagan vitality. Like Blackwood and Machen before him, Richard Gavin knows the inhuman yet seductive rapture of the deep woods; he has heard the ancient music on the hills. In his stories of 'sylvan dread,' his protagonists explore uncanny ravines and hillside clefts, take part in sacrilegious rites, encounter maenads and goatbrides and Lovecraftian horrors. Gavin’s prose is always quietly controlled, carefully crafted, but it inexorably leads his men and women into realms of terrifying otherness, where they are changed, changed utterly."

--- Michael Dirda,
Pulitzer Prize-winning critic,
author of The Great Age of Storytelling

Very few contemporary writers do what Richard Gavin does with his dark songs, as if tapping into a vein pulsing close to surface skin of the Other Side.

Looking forward to buying this Tome in a Hardcover with dustjacket included.When I first saw the title a singular image surfaced in my mind the Sacred Wood by Arnold Bocklin.

They were watching, out there past men's knowing, where stars are drowning and whales ferry their vast souls through the black and seamless sea.”
― Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West
