First up is the news that it looks increasingly likely that there will be a new novella from Spectral in September, being the second in the Spectral Visions line of longer works. Details are still being worked out (and the author in question is currently in the midst of writing it) but keep checking here on the blog for information as and when it becomes available – what we can say, however, that it looks set to be something of a corker!! We are also looking to launch the title at this year’s FantasyCon in Brighton.
The onward march of Spectral Press continues apace – as noted in yesterday’s blog the first Spectral Visions novella, Gary Fry’s The Respectable Face of Tyranny, has officially sold out in hardback from us here at Spectral Towers. There are some copies available from This Is Horror and very soon a selection of other shops in the UK and US will be stocking limited numbers of it – firmer details will be published soon (although you could have a look at yesterday’s blog to see which shops in particular are stocking it).
In the meantime the paperback version is now also available – the only difference between this and the hardback is that the bonus novella featured in the latter (World Wide Web) has been omitted. It’s available now and you can order a copy using the convenient buttons below (if you want to pay by any other means [except credit/debit cards] please email Spectral at spectralpress[AT]gmail[DOT]com):
Prices include postage and packing.
UK – £5.99 (£4.99 + £1 p&p)
EU – 9 Euros (6 Euros + 3 Euros p&p)
USA – $12 ($8 + $4 s&h)
RoW – $12 ($8 + $4 p&p)
(BTW – if you’re wondering why the publisher is listed as Gray Friar Press at Amazon US, the reason’s quite simple – Gary Fry runs that imprint and he ‘lent’ me an ISBN for it until I can buy some of my own! Rest assured that it is still a Spectral Press publication…)
This is as good a time as any to remind people that subscriptions are available for the chapbook series – the only surefire way of ensuring that you receive every single issue of this critically-acclaimed line of books. Even better is that subscribers now have the option to subscribe for 1, 3 or 5 years. Places are extremely limited however, so if you are intending to purchase one then it is suggested that you do so quickly, please. Convenient Paypal buttons can be found down the right-hand side of this blog.
Right, that’s it for today – except to say ONWARDS AND UPWARDS!!
