  1. Received my copy of What They Hear In The Dark at the weekend and read it in one sitting. Another brilliant story from Gary McMahon – The Harm and How To Make Monsters were the best things I read last year.

    Very impressed at the quality of the chapbook and am looking forward to the next books in my subscription.

  2. I would like to buy a copy of Gary McMahon’s book and review it on the above web site. I can’t work out how to do this. Sorry for my incompetence and bumblingness,

    Regards

  3. Just received my copy of the first chapbook and I’m blown away, both by the quality of the product and Gary’s story. If you’re interested I’ve bloged about it; I haven’t got many readers at the moment, but I really hope those I do have take ot subscriptions. If this first one is anything to go by then you deserve for this venture to be a huge success.

    Thanks again, and I can’t wait for the second book.

    A deeply disturbing tale – I couldn’t stop reading it, and again.

    Very much enjoyed Cate Gardner’s Nowhere Hall, and also found the Small Press panel at the recent FantasyCon very interesting. Do you think you’ll move on to single author collections as a Spectral Press publication in the future? The chapbooks have been very finally produced.

    Regarding the chapbooks, I’m looking forward to Alison Littlewood’s coming title…

    • Hello Ray!

      I’m glad you enjoyed both Nowhere Hall and the Small Press panel at FCon – as far as single author story collections go, in 2013 Spectral will be launching the Spectral Signature Editions, which will finely produced hardback volumes in limited numbers, signed and illustrated. There will possibly be a paperback version as well, but definitely an e-book version with an extra ot different story or two included to make it worthwhile! The first author will World fantasy Award-nominated writer Simon Kurt Unsworth!

      Let me know if you need more information – there will be TWO different versions of the hardbacks offered.

    • When I said finally, I meant finely. (That’s embarassing.)

    Good news indeed, I’ve loved Unsworth’s work in Black Static so I’ll put that date in my diary.

  7. Vicki Day says:
