Coming up soon: two new books

Spectral Press logoNews of some two new books due to arrive in mid-2015:

THE BUREAU OF THEM by Cate Gardner

First, we have Cate Gardner’s new novella The Bureau of Them, due to be published in June and launched at this year’s Edge-Lit event in Derby in July (alongside Mark Morris’ Albion Fay and Stephen Volk’s Leytonstone). Expect a story of Cate’s trademark dark surrealism and slightly-twisted realities, plus a cover from David Chatton-Barker which will be with us in a couple of weeks. In the meantime you can preorder the limited hardback and the unlimited paperback:

Black Mountain 11: The Dancers in the Pines is the final installment in Simon Bestwick’s monthly serial – the cover has been created by Neil Williams once more, and it’ll be available from Amazon later this week.

Of course, Dr. Valentine will be in the area very soon, and his rather fetching portrait (and those of his victims) features on John Llewellyn Probert’s second expose of his nefarious exploits, The Hammer of Dr. Valentine. Nick Gucker managed to get this one down on paper before narrowly escaping with his life…

And then, Stephen Volk gives us his follow up to the critically-acclaimed Whitstable – Leytonstone, which delves into the incident in Alfred Hitchcock’s childhood which shaped the director he was to become in later life.
