Screaming Book of Horror
« on: June 08, 2012, 01:08:58 PM »
Some news on the Screaming Book of Horror, which I will be publishing in time for FantasyCon. Editor Johnny Mains informs me that the lineup consists of stories by John Brunner, Alison Littlewood, Robin Ince, Bernard Taylor, Reginald Oliver, Anna Taborska, David A. Riley, Claire Massey, Paul Finch, Rhys Hughes, Kate Farell, Craig Herbertson, Janine Wood, Alison Moore, Johnny Mains, John Llewellyn Probert, Steve Rasnic Tem, and John Burke. It will be a jacketed hardcover edition, 100 copies only, so if you want to make sure you get your hands on one then please ask about pre-ordering yourself a copy as soon as possible. There will NOT be a Kindle edition of this title, so the hardback will be your only chance of buying this book. You have been warned!

Hey Steve - I'm most interested in putting my name down for a copy. But I tried to contact you with the contact form on your new site and it wouldn't let me! How much is the book going to be? Unless it's waaaay too expensive for me, I'd like a copy please!  :)

That's strange about the contact form not working. I just tested it and it works fine for me! What was the problem for you exactly?

I'll put your name down on the 'interested' list, don't worry!

Oh, the cover price will be 20 (as it's going to be a limited jacketed hardback) but I'll be doing a discount for pre-orders.

As soon as a few more things are sorted with the book then I'll be putting up a pre-order page on the SD website, so keep watching.

Thanks Steve! It may be my browser (Firefox) - or my computer, as that keeps playing up. You know the bit where it asks you to enter the code - well, there wasn't a code. I just hit submit anyway, but of course it didn't!

20 is a bargain at the price so consider me signed up for a copy!  :)

Great, your name is now on the list for the book! Thanks.

I use Firefox too so I make sure my site works fine with that browser. Weird that the code didn't show up.

Steve

The front cover for The Screaming Book of Horror (subject to any last-minute tweaks, of course!)

You can now PRE-ORDER a copy of 'The Screaming Book of Horror' and take advantage of the special offer price! Or if you want to just 'reserve' a copy and pay later (to make sure you secure a copy of this limited print run) then you can also put your name down via the form provided - although be aware that this option costs full price. Don't wait around, these will be snapped up quickly!

In that case, I've gone the pre-order route, Steve. I'm from Yorkshire, so I'll obviously go for the cheaper option!  :D

Love that cover too!

Thanks for the pre-order, Caroline. I thought the special offer price might tempt a few people who are keen on saving a few quid!

The Screaming Book of Horror draft (well, the first half of it anyway!) has been printed and is being checked today.

It's a special method I've developed for proof reading!  :D
