"Cold to the Touch" by Simon Strantzas

Hello fellow travellers.

I know this has been covered in my interview with Phil, but with new information available I thought a clean start was in order.

It's my pleasure to announce that my second collection of weird fiction, COLD TO THE TOUCH, has been scheduled for publication on July 29th, 2009 by Tartarus Press. I'm proud to join the ranks there with some of my brethren like Quentin S Crisp and Mark Samuels ... and of course Robert Aickman.

Though still too early to actually hand over your money, please take a look at the site and bookmark it. It shan't be long now before my beautiful darling is born into the world.

I hope you all enjoy it.

Re: "Cold to the Touch" by Simon Strantzas

That's great news, Simon! Tartarus Press remains my favourite publisher and COLD TO THE TOUCH sounds like a book that will fit perfectly among other titles published by them. Congratulations!

Re: "Cold to the Touch" by Simon Strantzas

Thank you, all.

Mr Y. Haze, I'll send your copy out as soon as I receive them.

(Tangentially, I'd like to mention that I just realised what the name "G.S. Carnivals" actually means; I feel like such a fool...)

Re: "Cold to the Touch" by Simon Strantzas

Great news! (And Tartarus remains my favourite publisher too).

"The Other Village" was one the very best contributions in Strange Tales II. I'm very excited to see a collection, especially since I missed out the first collection (even though that was in a different vein). I'll look over my finances at the end of the week and then, hopefully, preorder.

Speaking of which, Strange Tales III, due this winter, will also contain a tale by yours truly. I'm taking over, it seems.

Re: "Cold to the Touch" by Simon Strantzas

I'm looking forward to this one, especially since I missed Simon's last collection. I plan to put in a good word about it to my local seller of weird fiction as well, who sometimes orders books from Tartarus to sell in store.
