Another brilliant weekend done and dusted, and so now it’s reluctantly back to the grindstone – but at least it’s been leavened somewhat by us receiving another review of the latest chapbook, Alison Littlewood’s The Eyes of Water. The write-up was posted to the Dread Central horror blog, and was written by Pestilence – just pop over here to find out what they thought of Alison’s Mexico-set tale.
The limited signed hardback edition of John Llewellyn Probert’s The Nine Deaths of Dr. Valentine, the second entry in the Spectral Visions line, is provisionally on the point of selling out – there are just SIX copies left as I’m writing this. You can guarantee getting hold of one by clicking on the pre-order page, listed right next to ‘Home’ on the menu bar above, or contacting Spectral directly on spectralpress[AT]gmail[DOT]com as soon as possible. Yes, it’s as easy as that.
The fact that the book has practically sold out, more than a month before its official launch at this year’s FantasyCon, has prompted something of a rethink in terms of print run numbers. Just like the chapbooks, I am considering upping the numbers of Spectral Visions III (to be published in May next year) to 125, so that at the very least there’ll be the possibility of having some in stock here at Spectral Towers. This is a great position to be in, however: it means that Spectral Press’ reputation for publishing quality genre literature is still gaining ground and that people are actively seeking the books out.
Anyway, we will keep everyone informed on what isdecided. In the meantime, let’s see how fast those last remaining books will go – look forward to hearing from you.
