Re: New Horror Books



Introduction by Ramsey Campbell
FROM HELL . . .
Where shadows speak from the depths of a haunted sea.
Where a little girl’s obsession conjures a terrible bogeyman.
Where a woman’s body becomes her own worst enemy.
. . . TO ETERNITY
Where familiar places harbour ancient evil.
Where a dinner party descends into blood, sex, madness and death.
Where a camera can steal more than your very soul.
Enter the strange and disturbing world of Thana Niveau, where fear reigns eternal, and nightmares last forever; where your only refuge is madness and there is always something waiting in the dark.
Won't you join her?
Gray Friar Press is proud to present sixteen tales of supernatural horror from a new Mistress of the Macabre.

Re: New Horror Books

Thana Niveau is an excellent author, and requires the close attention of each and every devotee of weird literature. I strongly suspect her work will endure as a very worthy contribution to this ongoing tradition of wonder and terror. She has an imagination of such power and a grasp of the dynamics and history of our field that makes her deserving of the utmost respect.

Re: New Horror Books

What little I've read by Thana Niveau has been of a superlative quality. A shame about the cover, though. One of her stories (the one from the Ewers anthology) is in vol. 23 of The Mammoth Book of Best Horror, which has recently been released.

Two books received from PS Publishing the other day; books which might be of interest here.



Joel Lane: Where Furnaces Burn

ISBN 978-1-848634-85-5

SYNOPSIS

Episodes from the casebook of a police officer in the West Midlands:
A young woman needs help in finding the buried pieces of her lover... so he can return to waking life.
Pale-faced thieves gather by a disused railway to watch a puppet theatre of love and violence.
Why do local youths keep starting fires in the ash woods around a disused mine in the Black Country?
A series of inexplicable deaths lead the police to uncover a secret cult of machine worship.
When a migrant worker disappears, the key suspect is a boy driven mad by memories that are not his own.
Among the derelict factories and warehouses at the heart of the city, an archaic god seeks out his willing victims.
Blurring the occult detective story with urban noir fiction, Where Furnaces Burn offers a glimpse of the myths and terrors buried within the industrial landscape.
“Joel Lane has quietly and prolifically built up a body of work that has brilliantly chronicled lives led in the wastelands of the UK, as well as charting some of the awful territories that exist within all of us.” – Conrad Williams

BIO
Joel Lane ['s] [...] Forthcoming projects include This Spectacular Darkness, a book of essays on classic weird fiction authors; The Anniversary of Never, a collection of metaphysical ghost stories; and Black Label, a crime novel about bootleg alcohol. The stories in Where Furnaces Burn were written over thirteen years. One of them, 'My Stone Desire', won the British Fantasy Award for best short story in 2008. Two others, 'Still Water' and 'Black Country', appeared in the Best New Horror series edited by Stephen Jones; another, 'The Receivers', appeared in the Year's Best Fantasy and Horror series edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling.




(sorry about the size, but the only other pictures I could find were monstrously big.)

R.B. Russell: Leave Your Sleep.

ISBN 978-1-848633-25-4

SYNOPSIS

If only we would take the time to look a little closer, delve a little deeeper, when ordinary life goes awry, we might find the world more strange and unexpected than we ever could have imagined...

Following on from Literary Remains, R.B. Russell’s previous collection for PS Publishing, the twelve stories of Leave Your Sleep concern sex and death, love and loss. Russell allows his characters to disappear, slip into alternate realities, or re-write their own histories. They find they are able to do the most extraordinary things, even though they may not immediately realise it. And who is in control of their actions, or those around them?

In ‘An Unconventional Exorcism’, why is a young woman who claims to talk to the dead so shocked when her aunt comes back to haunt her? In ‘The Red Rose and the Cross of Gold’, when an engineer in a crumbling city stumbles upon a messy murder, who cleans up afterwards? And in ‘Mathilde’, what do lovers do when everyone is against their relationship? These and other questions are explored in Russell’s beautifully evocative prose.

CONTENTS
  • An Unconventional Exorcism
  • The Red Rose and the Cross of Gold
  • Leave Your Sleep
  • The Restaurant San Martín
  • Another Perspective
  • The Dress
  • A Woman of the Party
  • Mathilde
  • A False Impression
  • Gala Gladkov’s Exquisite Process
  • Reunion
  • The Beautiful Room
BIO

R. B. Russell is an English author, born in Sussex, who has a fondness for old books and vinyl records. He has had published the short story collections Putting the Pieces in Place and Literary Remains, along with the novella Bloody Baudelaire. An omnibus collection of his work was recently published as Ghosts, along with a CD of his music under the same title.

Russell is co-proprietor of the independent publishing house Tartarus Press, and now lives in the Yorkshire Dales with his partner, the writer and publisher Rosalie Parker, their son, and two cats.

Re: New Horror Books

Thanks, Mads. I should clarify that the list of my 'forthcoming' works refers to works in progress, not books completed and lined up for publication – careless phrasing on my part.

Ah, well ... one could hope.

How far in progress are they? I'm especially interested in the essays (though I'm interested in all three).

Re: New Horror Books

A working draft of the book of ghost stories exists but new work will be added to improve it. I'm writing the book of essays on the instalment plan and am halfway there, want to do two or three more essays for Wormwood and then take a couple of years off fiction writing to complete the book. But each chapter involves lots of re-reading so it will take a while. I'm still gathering notes for the novel and planning it, so that's a way off. The word 'forthcoming' was an expression of my irrepressible optimism (like the books themselves).

I recently announced that I am retiring from real-time reviewing, having done it solidly for four years.
In view of above comments, perhaps I should do just one more?

Re: New Horror Books

Atlas Press recently published The Living Are Few, The Dead Many by Hans Henny Jahnn. The new collection includes three of Jahnn's 13 Uncanny Tales as well as his novel The Night of Lead. Recommended!
