LEYTONSTONE by Stephen Volk
We have just seen the cover artwork by amazing artist Ben Baldwin for this ‘sequel-but-not-sequel’ to Mr. Volk’s Whitstable from last year… and we shall be teasing the whole thing out over the course of the coming months (we’re good like that). It is scheduled for publication in March/April 2015.
THE HAMMER OF DR. VALENTINE by John Llewellyn Probert
Some of you may be wondering what’s happening to this previously announced novella – well, we have decided to shift publication to Hallowe’en, which we think is far more appropriate for the good doctor’s next appearance than in the middle of summer. John and his lovely wife Kate are in the process of creating a video promo for it, and the cover is being produced by Nick Gucker. Look out for more details soon!
