Death Rattles now available

Back in the mid-80s, a UK television show aired on Channel 4 that pushed the boundaries of accepted broadcasting standards. As far as can be established, only six episodes were ever shown, but hardly anybody can remember seeing them. Official records offer scant information, and no recordings of the episodes seem to exist. There are rumours of clips on YouTube and water-damaged master tapes found in a media vault, but nobody has stepped forward with anything other than hearsay.

Six authors do remember the series, and their imperfect recollections form the basis for the stories in this book. You’ll probably not get a chance to see the original show, so this may be your only opportunity to experience Death Rattles, ‘the notorious lost TV series’.

With contributions by John Llewellyn Probert, Gary Fry, Thana Niveau, Simon Bestwick, Paul Finch and Gary McMahon, plus an introduction by Stephen Volk, Death Rattles is available from Gray Friars Press.
