We think the image perfectly captures the essence of its famous and illustrious forebears, The Pan Books of Horror StoriesThe Fontana Books of Great Horror/Ghost Stories and The Armada Books of Ghost Stories, but necessarily updating and modernising them to give the whole series a contemporary feel and to establish the ‘brand’ in its own right.

As reported on Monday, Spectral will be publishing another monthly serial in the form of James Everington’s The Quarantined City, and we are delighted to announce that we have received permission to use Max Ernst’s glorious evocation of war-torn Europe, Europe After the Rain, as the cover image. However, rather than use the whole image for each episode, we will be using different sections of it for the individual parts. The serial will run from January 2015 to June 2015.

More details of the story will be presented soon!
