Shadow Publishing will shortly release a new collection from Johnny Mains. Frightfully Cosy And Mild Stories For Nervous Types will be published in September 2012 in paperback format priced at Â£7.99. It has cover art by Richard Sampson and an Introduction from Stephen Volk.
About the book:
‘Not for the Squeamish! From the twisted mind of British Fantasy Award winner Johnny Mains comes 12 stories of death, betrayal, insanity and pregnancies…The collection includes five previously unpublished tales. From classic themes in his sequel to M. R. Jamesâ€™ A Warning to the Curious, in “Aldeburgh” to his wild take on traditional horror subject matter in the strange case of “The Were-Dwarf”, to the bleakly dark modern horror of “Cure”. This collection of extraordinary horror yarns will not disappoint genre fans who enjoy variety in the horror books they buy.’
â€œJohnny Mains not only carries a flame for the old horrors, but wants to cause a bit of a conflagration of his own. The most fitting result would be if the next generation of horror readers will look back with pleasure and affection at his tales as we did with the Pans and Fontanas of our ill-begotten youthâ€ –Stephen Volk
