Stephen Volk’s Whitstable: the first reviews

Whitstable cover image

Advance review copies of Stephen Volk’s novella have going out here, there and everywhere within the last week or so, and already two reviews have been posted. We here at Spectral reckon that it’s an extremely important book for the imprint, one that will help consolidate the reputation that we’ve been working so hard on building over the last two years – so what did the reviewers think of the third entry in the Spectral Visions  line of novellas?

The first review is from Mark West and posted to his Strange Tales blog. (Disclaimer: Mark is the man behind Rude Dude Films and the man who puts together Spectral’s video book trailers). You can read his assessment here.

Second is a review from that stalwart of the reviewing scene, Jim McLeod, and posted to his Ginger Nuts of Horror blog – you can read that one here.

The signed and numbered limited hardback edition is available for pre-order right now, and can be purchased through the Spectral Shop – publication date is not until 26th May (Peter Cushing’s birthday) but already more than half the projected print run has been claimed. There will also be articles/column pieces in Fortean Times, FEAR magazine, Black Static, Morpheus Tales, the BFS Journal, and on – this much anticipated novella has been generating more than a bit of interest. Buy yourself a copy today and see why there’s such a buzz about Whitstable!
