THE WHITE ROAD ~ REVIEWS

THE WHITE ROAD has been reviewed at David Longhorn’s excellent Supernatural Tales blog ... visit http://suptales.blogspot.fr/2017/12/the-white-road-review.html  to check out what he has to say about this one.
Des Lewis has also reviewed the book at https://dflewisreviews.wordpress.com/2017/12/16/the-white-road-ron-weighell/
Sarob Press friend Boyd White has asked me to mention the following which may be of some interest:
In the recently published 20th anniversary edition of “The White Road”, Ron Weighell mentions the limited fine press edition of “The Four Strengths of Shadow” that was published by Chad Oness’ Sutton Hoo Press under the Alpenhouse Apparitions imprint.   Although sheets for 100 copies were printed, only 50 copies were actually bound, 22 of which were available for sale. Genre specialist John Knott acquired a number of copies, and Ron signed each copy. Copies of this book are currently available directly from John Knott at his website. For further details visit www.jwkbooks.com/pages/books/20244/ron-weighell/the-four-strengths-of-shadow
I’m aiming to announce our next title in the next week or so.
Cheers, Robert.

THE WHITE ROAD ~ SOLD OUT

Happy New Year to all our friends.

THE WHITE ROAD by Ron Weighell arrived from my book printer at the very end of November and, after a mad and hugely busy week or two, I was able to ship all pre-ordered copies by the 14 December and these should, all being well, have arrived before or (for those unlucky few) very shortly after Christmas.
THE WHITE ROAD is now (already, I’m afraid) SOLD OUT.

Thanks, as always, to everyone who purchased this title.
Anyone who missed out might be able to get copies (while the dealer stocks last) from ...
UK:  Cold Tonnage Books.  Fantastic Literature
USA:  Camelot Books & Gifts.  Dark Hollow Books.  Realms of Fantasy Books.  Wrigley-Cross Books.  Ziesings
Canada:  M J Thompson Rare Books

Still Available ... but, I’m guessing, not for long as only a dozen remain ... is FROM ANCIENT RAVENS by Mark Valentine, Ron Weighell & John Howard.
And I have just THREE copies left of DARKLY HAUNTING !!!


Cheers, Robert.

THE WHITE ROAD ~ NEW TITLE NEWS

NEW TITLE NEWS

THE WHITE ROAD
RON WEIGHELL

When THE WHITE ROAD appeared in 1997, in the Ghost Story Press edition, it collected all the short fiction the author wanted to see preserved at that time. In this new Sarob Press edition a few of the minor, or otherwise readily available stories from the original have been left out and ‘replaced’ by a novella bringing together two of Ron Weighell’s most popular characters, ‘James Calder-Stuart’ and ‘Vallance’, and taking ideas in its plot from one of the ‘lost novels’ mentioned in the introduction to the original edition ... “Out of the Hidden Land” has been written especially for this volume. The original stories have been newly typeset and re-imagined. This 384pp (approx) hardcover containing 24 stories and 2 novellas has been a massive undertaking by the author, the artist and by Sarob Press ... a true labour of love. The original stories have mostly only minor revisions/corrections etc and appear in the author’s preferred order ... and the overall feel and concept of this new volume is wholly different to the GSP edition. And we’ve worked extra hard and really pushed the boat out in regards to design and production. Truly a book to savour ... Stories:
“The Secret Place” “Againbite” “The Boat Called Millions of Years” “Carven of Onyx” “Laid Down and Guarded” “The First Turning of the Second Stair” “‘Bishop’ Asgarth’s Chantry” “China Rose” “The Tunnel of Saksaksalim” “Lock Fast the Lock” “The Greater Arcana” “An Empty House” “The Stryx” “The Box Parterre” “Byerly Mount” “Second Death” “The Chestnut Husk” “The Lycurgus Cup” “The Circle of the Hieroglyphs” “The Ram Head Ring” “Necropolis” “The Fire of the Wise” “Diminish Like the Word” “The Resurrection Brass” “The White Road” & “Out of the Hidden Land”
Ron has provided a new introduction for this 20th anniversary edition and artist Nick Maloret has come up with a terrific painting for the jacket, another for the ‘illustrated end-papers’ and distinctive blocking art for the front boards (all based on the Egyptian Magic themes in the new novella).

THE WHITE ROAD is a Hand Numbered Lithographically Printed Limited Edition Hardcover, Bound in WHITE wibalin (fine linen style) with a blocking design to the front boards. Spine Blocking. Full Colour Dust Jacket with wrap cover art, premium Munken Cream 80gsm Bookwove, 16pp section sewn binding, head/tailbands, ribbon marker and, a first for Sarob Press, gorgeous illustrated end-papers. The book will be flat “signed” by the author when received from the book-printer.
Publication currently scheduled for late November 2017.

PRICE
(inclusive of Postage & Packing)

UK: UK £40.00
Europe: 55,00 euros
USA & Rest of World: US $75.00

THE WHITE ROAD

I’m aiming to “announce” the much anticipated and talked about twentieth anniversary edition of THE WHITE ROAD by RON WEIGHELL within the next two weeks.
To whet your appetite (and as a few people have asked) ... here’s a little taster of the jacket art (by Nick Maloret).
Watch this space ... as they say.
I still have some copies available of FROM ANCIENT RAVENS and DARKLY HAUNTING ... but not many!

Cheers, Robert.

DARKLY HAUNTING UPDATE

DARKLY HAUNTING has finally arrived here in sunny France and all pre-publication orders have now shipped and should be touching down shortly (if not already done so).
Only around 16/17 copies left so if you want a copy and haven’t yet ordered ...
David (Longhorn) has already started reviewing each story on his excellent Supernatural Tales blog at suptales.blogspot.com
Ron Weighell and I met yesterday to put our heads together to thrash out some design bits and pieces for the eagerly awaited 20th Anniversary Edition of his fabled THE WHITE ROAD ... already getting lots and lots of interest in this one.
I hope to speak to my book printer this week and am aiming to properly “announce” THE WHITE ROAD (with everything you’ll need to know) before the end of this month.

Cheers, Robert.
