Thanks everyone for helping make this one another roaring success.
FROM ANCIENT RAVENS (see below) is with my book printer and, all being well, I hope to be shipping pre-orders before the end of March. Already about 90% sold so don’t hang about if you haven’t ordered or reserved your copy.

Cheers, Robert.

NEW TITLE NEWS ~ FROM ANCIENT RAVENS


FROM ANCIENT RAVENS

ROMANCES OF THE WHITE DAY, a volume in tribute to Arthur Machen by three (new) impostors, appeared from Sarob Press in May 2015. Rosemary Pardoe (in “The Ghosts & Scholars MR James Newsletter”) called the volume “... the most consistently excellent collection of stories I’ve read for years.”
Encouraged by the success of the Machen homage the impostors turned their thoughts toward Algernon Blackwood ... PAGAN TRIPTYCH (May 2016) was the rather fabulous result.
According to Shakespeare, ‘Time’s Glory is to calm contending kings ... To blot old books and alter their contents, To pluck the quills from ancient ravens’ wings’.
In this third, and final, shared volume, the three impostors use just such dark pens to evoke (in their own unique voices this time) the re-emergence of past shadows.

Mark Valentine ... THE FIFTH MOON ... the search for King John’s treasure ~ with a dark and diabolic twist
Ron Weighell ... THE ASMODEUS FELLOWSHIP ... a famous Budapest cafe, and a strange unholy gathering of story tellers
John Howard ... BETWEEN ME AND THE SUN ... past and present, secrets unveiled and a shocking coming of age

FROM ANCIENT RAVENS is a Lithographically Printed, Hand Numbered Limited Edition Hardcover, Bound in Wibalin (fine linen style), Foil Blocked to spine, Colour Dust-Jacket with wrap cover art, 80gsm Munken Premium Cream Bookwove, Section Sewn Binding, Head & Tailbands, Ribbon Marker & Coloured Endpapers.

PHANTASMS by PETER BELL

Hello Everyone ... Happy New Year.
PHANTASMS (Twelve Eerie Tales) by PETER BELL arrived a little later than expected from my book printer but I was able to check, number and pack all pre-publication orders and get them in the post comfortably before Christmas.
UK pre-orders posted from within the UK by Royal Mail on 13 December (should all have safely arrived before Christmas). USA, RoW and Europe pre-orders shipped from France on 17 December and, allowing for the post at this time of year, will have arrived or be touching down anytime about now.
All orders received after the 17 December have also now shipped.

Thanks, Robert.

ANNOUNCING PHANTASMS BY PETER BELL

NEW TITLE NEWS

PHANTASMS by PETER BELL

Sarob Press is delighted to present a superb new collection of ghostly offerings from Peter Bell. Here are twelve stories (five original to this collection – and all others fully revised), many (as the author notes) inspired by “places that have haunted me”. Peter’s previous Sarob Press collection, A Certain Slant of Light, sold out very quickly, and we suspect this one will not be around too long. These traditional ghost stories are perfect fireside companions for the long, cold, dark nights of winter ... snuggle up warm with your favourite tipple but ... be ready for a chilling sense of terror and ... don’t forget to lock the doors and windows.
Stories:  “Walking with the Cross” “The Madonna of Picardy” “Party Line” “The Sands o’ Dee” “The Island of One Sheep” “Glamour of Madness” “Southwold” “The Books of Balgowrie” “Abide with Me” “Materials for a Ghost Story” “Princess on the Highway” “Last of the Line”. Foreword by the author.

Hand-Numbered Limited Edition Hardcover. Bound in wibalin (fine linen), lithographically printed on Munken Premium Cream Bookwove, sewn in 16pp sections, with head/tailbands, ribbon marker and wibalin natural coloured endpapers.
Full colour dust jacket with fabulous wrap cover art by Paul Lowe. Approx 160pp.
Publication currently scheduled for late November/early December 2016.

PRICES (inclusive of Postage & Packing)

Kind regards, Robert.
