OK … as promised here are the details for our re-launch title. We've tried to keep the book nice and affordable even though it's a limited numbered hardcover. And we've also made every effort to give the book something of the look of our early titles. That's black and white cover art and illustrations … a ghostly touch. We've just signed up for a French Paypal Account and this should allow anyone to pay easily using a credit card or their Paypal account. Paypal details will be posted when we know everything is working OK in a week or so … if, in the meantime, you want to reserve a copy of Seven Ghosts and One Other pending payment just e-mail Robert at

NEW for October 2010 from WORLD FANTASY AWARD winning SAROB PRESS

C.E. Ward : Seven Ghosts and One Other

In 1998 we published Vengeful Ghosts by C.E. Ward as our second publication (and our first by a living author). The collection was very well received, sold out pretty quickly and is long out of print. Indeed, it's now something of a collectors item. We are pleased and very proud to now present Mr Ward's long-awaited second ghost story collection ... Seven Ghosts and One Other. These eight Jamesian tales include two new long and previously unpublished supernatural stories and the authorised completion of M.R. James' unfinished “The Game of Bear”.  Stories: “The Doorway of St Stephen's”, “The Game of Bear”, “The Short Cut”, “Not Found Among You”, “The Particular”, “The Guardian”, “Mariner's Rest” and “Behind the Curtain”.
Afterword by C.E. Ward. Illustrations by Paul Lowe.
Limited Edition Hardcover. Printed Boards. Edition limited to 150 numbered copies.
Limitation will be reviewed if pre-publication interest suggests a larger print run is appropriate.
