“Promises to be a veritable treasure trove of weird fiction.”
Dennis Etchison is a master of psychological horror. Starting with The Dark Country (1982), his work has been critically lauded by mainstream publications and other writers in the genre. This is the first major retrospective of his career and includes some rare pieces, over a dozen photographs, original artwork and more.
A Long Time Til Morning is the largest collection of Dennis Etchison stories ever published and includes some rare essays.
Why We’re Excited About This Book: Dennis Etchison’s body of work is one of the most distinctive and powerful in the horror genre in the last few decades. Very much a writer’s writer, his tales are by turns haunting, heartbreaking and ambiguous. He’s been writing classic stories for decades now. Maybe because he focuses on short stories he doesn’t have the name recognition of a King or a Campbell, but he sure as hell should. A Long Time Til Morning is a gorgeously illustrated hardback with an introduction by S.T. Joshi. Providing a retrospective of Etchison’s stories, it promises to be a veritable treasure trove of weird fiction.
This Book Will Appeal To: people who’ve been waiting for the showcase Dennis Etchison’s writing deserves.
Look Out For … The Spectral Book Of Horror Stories
Nineteen Brand New Tales To Chill Your Blood And Haunt Your Dreams!
“The figure crouched over his mother was… taking something from her, sliding some spidery thing that struggled and screamed soundlessly out of her side and into his leathery dark bag…”
Including ‘The Night Doctor’ by Steve Rasnic Tem , ‘The Book And The Ring’ by Reggie Oliver and ‘Cures For A Sickened World’ by Brian Hodge. Also featuring stories from Ramsey Campbell, Alison Littlewood, Helen Marshall, Gary McMahon, Michael Marshall Smith, Lisa Tuttle, Stephen Volk, Conrad Williams, Tom Fletcher, John Llewellyn Probert, Nicholas Royle, Rio Youers, Alison Moore, Angela Slatter, Stephen Laws and Robert Shearman.
Why We’re Excited About This Book: Intended to be an annual release in the style of the classic horror anthologies of yesteryear, The Spectral Book Of Horror Stories is Spectral Press’s most ambitious title yet. With original stories selected and edited by Mark Morris, the contents page reads like a Who’s Who of the current horror scene. There looks to be a real variety in the writers selected from the pulp styling of John Llewellyn Probert, to the quiet bleakness of Alison Moore, from the mind bending ambiguity of a Nicholas Royle story, to the laughter in the dark of Robert Shearman. This one looks like a real treat.
