Due to the incredible popularity of the fifth collection of John Llewellyn Probert's short fiction, Wicked Delights has already been re-printed in the United Kingdom, and in North America the title is now being printed for its third time. Atomic Fez is over-joyed that the world thinks as highly of Mr. Probert's writing as does the hard-working team of fiction scientists in the Atomic Fez laboratories.

Prolific horror writer Probert (The Faculty of Terror) offers up 18 gruesome, unsettling, and often unnervingly funny tales in his wide-ranging fifth short story collection… Vividly creepy images… are all the more compelling when rendered in Probert’s breezy style. An illuminating and frequently hilarious afterword ends the collection on a gentle note.
Publishers Weekly; February 8TH 2010, “Fiction Reviews (SF/Fantasy/Horror)”

The delightfully wicked Mr Probert wields his prose like a scalpel. His imagination is impressively warped and gruesome, and yet his tales have an unrepentantly English reticence. There’s dark humour here, and unexpected poignancy — indeed, the book is as full of surprises as the man himself. Horror is lucky to have him.
Ramsey Campbell (author of Just Behind You and Creatures of the Pool)

PLEASE NOTE: United Kingdom, European, and other Foreign Regions have freshly-reprinted copies available now. Customers in these areas will have orders shipped immediately from Atomic Fez's UK Centre of Operations using direct domestic mail.

North American supplies of this title are temporarily unavailable. More copies will arrive at the Atomic Fez shipping complex in the Dominion of Canada at the beginning of July, for which orders are being taken now.

That's amazingly good news. And well deserved.

By the way, John starts a new regular column, discussing films, in the forthcoming issue of Prism.
