THE DULWICH HORROR & OTHERS by David Hambling
Inspired by the Cthulhu Mythos of H. P. Lovecraft, this stylish collection of adventure stories fizzes with wit and invention. They can be enjoyed separately, but read them in one sitting and the pieces fit horribly together into a larger and more terrible nightmare. These tales constitute David Hambling's initial foray into the realm of Lovecraftian fiction. The fertility of imagination, the crisp character delineations, and the smooth-flowing prose that we find in these seven tales leave us wishing for more of the same, and Hambling will no doubt oblige in the coming years. For now, we can sit back and relish a brace of stories that not only evoke the shade of the dreamer from Providence but which that dreamer himself would have enjoyed to the full.
I’ve not received any news from the slipcase manufacturers about the slipcase for UPON A DARK OF EVIL OVERLORDS by Steven Erikson. I’m sure they won’t be too long now.
There are also more orders for CUJO in the post so please be patient a little longer.
And talking of patience, for those of you who are waiting for the signed edition of NEW MAPS OF DREAM edited by Cody Goodfellow and Joseph S. Pulver Sr. We do have one of the fully signed sheets but apparently the second sheet is somewhere between India and Australia.
A brief update but hopefully more news next week.
And finally, a belated apology on behalf of PS fave James Cooper, who we erroneously referred to as James Copper in last week's newsletter. Thankfully, James was very understanding.
Mike is currently working on James' collection SCAR TISSUE featuring eight original stories inspired by the work of legendary writers: Clive Barker, Ray Bradbury, Shirley Jackson, Stephen King, Joe Lansdale, Daphne du Maurier, Robert McCammon and Peter Straub.
Here's a sneaky peek at Francois Vaillancourt's art for the jacket.
