The Nine Deaths of Dr. Valentine: the first reviews
It’s that time again, when we send out review texts of another new Spectral publication and suffer sleepless nights* waiting anxiously for the write-ups to return. As you all know, the latest one is the new John Llewellyn Probert Spectral Visions novella, The Nine Deaths of Dr. Valentine, and we have been busy sending out e-versions of the text to various bloggers and magazines to see what they thought. Anyway, two reviews have already come home to roost and we’re very pleased to be able to tell you all about them.
The first one is from This is Horror, the online horror resource (declaration: I am the fiction and reviews editor of the magazine but I did not edit this one), and was written by Dan Howarth. You can read what he he had to say here.
The second review is from the estimable Walt Hicks of Hellbound Times, who has a habit of getting reviews out almost as soon as the books are sent to him. Indeed, just a day or two after sending him the text, he sent us this review, which you can read here.
The paperback edition will be available very soon, look for news of it shortly on these pages. Spectral will be in attendance at this year’s FantasyCon, where the book will be launched, and we will be bringing paperbacks with us as well as the hardbacks.
More reviews soon!
