Re: The Swan River Press

Hi folks,

I realised today it's been a while since I've posted an update here.

Earth-Bound by Dorothy Macardle is now available, as is Fritz Leiber's The Pale Brown Thing (the latter comes with a postcard signed by Donald Sidney-Fryer while supplies last).

The Swan River Press - Titles in Print

The next book is Lynda E. Rucker's second collection, You'll Know When You Get There. It will be launched at the Dublin Ghost Story Festival by Lisa Tuttle (who wrote the intro) at the end of August. You can pre-order a copy here:

You'll Know When You Get There

And finally, there's been a slight change of plan with the Uncertainties anthology. Due to the complete lack of integrity of the former publisher (such as an illegible font size so as to save money on printing), I've decided to publish the book through Swan River. It's the only way to ensure a high enough standard.

For a number of reasons, I've split the book into two volumes and added a few more stories than what appeared in the original line-up. Both volumes will launch at the Dublin Ghost Story Festival, and all contributors to volume one will be in attendance that weekend.

Uncertainties Vol. 1
Uncertainties Vol. 2

Uncertainties Vols 1 and 2 will be back from the printer with Lynda's book, but they are not available for pre-order just yet. Subscribe to the mailing list though if you want to know when they are:

Thank you again to everyone for their continued support. This has been an ambitious year, especially with the Ghost Story Festival which I've planned along with John Connolly.

If anyone has any pressing questions, please drop me a line. You know where to find me!

Best,
Brian

New Title - August 2017



A FLUTTER OF WINGS
by Mervyn Wall

Printings: August 2017 (300)
Cover image by Clare Brennan
Introduction: Val Mulkerns
Style: Dust jacketed hardback
Length: ix + 222 pages
ISBN: 978-1-78380-017-9

Available for pre-order.

Numbered edition of 100 also available while supplies last.


First collected in 1974, the stories in A Flutter of Wings span Mervyn Wall's entire writing career, dating back as far as the 1940s. Told in an easy style, tales such as "They Also Serve . . . " and "Adventure" offer the same satirical sensibilities found in Wall's classic novel The Unfortunate Fursey; while darker tales such as "Cloonaturk" and "The Demon Angler" are not without a hint of the grimly sardonic. In addition to an introduction by Val Mulkerns and illustrations by Clare Brennan, this new edition boasts the uncollected Jamesian fragment "Extract from an Abandoned Novel", and Wall's early play, Alarm Among the Clerks, a savagely hilarious and ultimately brutal depiction of office life.

Contents
"Remembering Mervyn" by Val Mulkerns
"They Also Serve . . . "
"Adventure"
"The Hogskin Gloves"
"The Demon Angler"
"Cloonaturk"
"Age Cannot Wither"
"Leo the Lion"
"The Men Who Could Outstare Cobras"

OLD HOGGEN AND OTHER ADVENTURES
by Bram Stoker



Printings: 8 November 2017 (300)
Cover image by Jason Zerrillo
Preface: Brian J. Showers
Introduction: John Edgar Browning and Brian J. Showers
Style: Dust jacketed hardback
Length: xv + 186 pages
ISBN: 978-1-78380-018-6


Available for pre-order.

"Old Hoggen had disappeared: and murder was naturally suspected." ó Bram Stoker

At the time of his death in 1912, Bram Stoker was preparing for publication three volumes of stories. The first, Draculaís Guest, saw print in 1914; the second and third never manifested. Old Hoggen and Other Adventures is a tantalising possibility of one of these unrealised selections, and the stories in this volume span the authorís entire career. In reading them, one thing becomes clear: adventure and mystery rival even the gothic in Stokerís literary heart. And yet, one will find among these pages many of the same themes found in Dracula: reverence for the dead, the malice of wicked men, black humour, hidden fortunes, daring bravery, exotic locales, a deep love of the sea, and the creeping intrusion of the supernatural.
