People have been telling me for years how much they remember -- and enjoyed -- my stories for Pan and Fontana Horror and Fontana Ghosts from the early 80s. So now I've put them all together in one collection on Kindle. Each tale has a short introduction about where it came from and what it was like working with the likes of Mary Danby, Herbert van Thal and Ronald Chetwynd-Hayes, and there are a couple of related stories from that period thrown in for good measure.

"Pan & Fontana Horror/ Ghost weren't merely cult events or even phenomena, they were a big part of the history of horror literature ..."
Couldn't agree more with that, and while the Pan's and early Fontana Ghosts ... have been justly revered in recent years, I always felt the Fontana Horror's never received their due, while the Chetwynd-Hayes edited Ghosts rarely get a look in.
Very pleased to see these stories available again, and your commentary to date (as yet, have only read the kindle sample) is a treat.
From the first, I set myself against "literature"; the story was the thing, and no amount of style could persuade me to select a story that lacked genuine, unadulterated horror. For those who wanted something high-brow there was plenty.
Thanks as well, Demonik. Hope you enjoy the whole thing ... there's a commentary for each story. Chetwynd-Hayes was a fine editor, and a good writer too, very popular in his heyday, and deserves a bit more recognition.
took me exactly 20 seconds of seeing this to have it downloaded. i think i speak for many who read these stories in the original books but no longer have copies. i don't really have the time to ransack the second-hand book shops to track them down again so the more that are given a second chance on e-reader the better imo. thanks Tony!
