The word on the street is that The 9th Black Book Of Horror will soon be upon us, but best wait until Dr. Terror sees fit to confirm or deny.
It should be out next month, Dem. In fact, it better be as I have a launch booked at Fantasycon.
I use Lightning Source to print them. Whilst initially Lulu might seem the better option - no set up fees - when you do the sums, the books would actually be more expensive.
This is the ToC:
THE ANATOMY LESSON - John Llewellyn Probert THE MALL - Craig Herbertson SALVAJE - Simon Bestwick PET - Gary Fry ASHES TO ASHES - David Williamson THE APPRENTICE - Anna Taborska LIFE EXPECTANCY - Sam Dawson WHAT’S BEHIND YOU? - Paul Finch BEN’S BEST FRIEND - Gary Power THE THINGS THAT AREN’T THERE - Thana Niveau BIT ON THE SIDE - Tom Johnstone INDECENT BEHAVIOUR - Marion Pitman HIS FAMILY - Kate Farrell A SONG, A SILENCE - John Forth THE MAN WHO HATED WASTE - Marc Lyth SWAN SONG - David A. Riley
your finger-on-the-pulse Vault, first with the exclusives, admittedly often the ones nobody else wants, but not in this instance! Terrific line up there Charles, with the stalwarts still going strong, five débutantes, and more female contributors than ever before. Very well done congratulations to all the contributors. And yes, have already prepared an updated index ...
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.
