The Deluxe Edition of Lawrence Gordon Clark book: an update

CGS_Qtr cover

The good news about the ultra limited Deluxe Edition of The Christmas Ghost Stories of Lawrence Gordon Clark is that they will be here either tomorrow (Friday 30th May) or Monday 2nd June. The slipcases however still need to be made. In view of the already inordinate delay occasioned by various issues, Spectral will be sending the book out to customers first followed by the slipcases when they’re ready. This is so that customers can at least read the book they have waited for. All purchasers will be notified by email of this situation individually.

All it remains for us to do is to thank all who bought the book for their extreme patience! 

Thank you!

The Christmas Ghost Stories of Lawrence Gordon Clark Deluxe edition: the cover

We know that this has been a long time coming, and that there has been delay after delay, for which we apologise most profusely, BUT we are also very concerned with bringing you the best product we can. That is very much so in this case, so may we present to you the cover to the Deluxe very limited edition of The Christmas Ghost Stories of Lawrence Gordon Clark, designed for us by John Oakey:

CGS_Qtr cover

As you can see, the book features quarter-cloth binding in black and red, with gold foil blocking to front and spine (featuring one of Nick Gucker’s wonderful vignettes and Lawrence’s signature). There will also be a slipcase to go with this, making it a very special item indeed. There are only SEVENTEEN copies of the Deluxe edition left to order – if you want one then please hurry as they will soon be gone. Details of contents and other editions available, plus purchasing links, can be found below

First off, we would like to let you know about the latest review of The Christmas Ghost Stories of Lawrence Gordon Clark – this one is from Jez Winship and has been posted to his Sparks in Electrical Jelly blog. It’s quite a lengthy and in-depth review, and you can read it HERE.

On the subject of The Christmas Ghost Stories, we would like to inform purchasers of the Unsigned Hardback edition that, due to a printing error, the dustjackets are being reprinted. We have just received the proof and the finished articles will be here by the end of next week.

The Deluxe edition will soon be going to print – just minor details to the covers are being worked on by the magnificent John Oakey. Please bear with us as the signature sheets will be signed individually by Lawrence Gordon Clark, Tony Earnshaw and Simon Marshall-Jones, plus the slipcases are being separately custom-made for the book. Although this is taking longer than anticipated, we can assure you that the quality of workmanship will be absolutely superb – in other words, we will only produce the best for our customers. Many apologies for the delay, but it will be worth it.

The day has arrived when the Unsigned Hardback edition of The Christmas Ghost Stories of Lawrence Gordon Clark will be delivered to Château Spectrale, so this weekend will see the great packing spectacular. If you need any more encouragement to purchase a copy, here’s an endorsement for the book from none other than Reece Shearsmith (The League of GentlemenInside No. 9):

“Lawrence Gordon Clark is the man who single-handedly realised that most wonderful BBC tradition, the Ghost Story for Christmas. His adaptations of M.R. James are unsurpassed studies in creeping terror. As a fan, this treasure of a book is an absolute must.”

And following on from that, here’s a link to a new review of the book from Stuart Douglas, posted on his From a Story by… blog – just click HERE. See below as to how to get YOUR copy today!

Here in the Vale of Wandering and Mournful Shades (otherwise known as Milton Keynes), it is a beautifully misty and frosty morning. But that isn’t a problem, as we’ve just received the very first review of Spectral Press’ latest book, The Christmas Ghost Stories of Lawrence Gordon Clark. It’s featured in a new periodical called The Spectral Times (which is not connected in any way to Spectral Press, we hasten to point out) and was written by Matthew Banks. The online edition of the magazine can be found here, and the review is on pages 18 – 19.

Customers who have ordered the unsigned hardback edition of this book will be pleased to know that it is being sent off to be printed this morning. The delay is entirely due to the relocation of Spectral Headquarters – we’re still battling boxes here at Château Spectrale and they appear to be never-ending! Rest assured that the book will be sent to customers as soon as the printers can get them here.

Inevitably, this has had a knock-on effect on the Deluxe edition – it is being designed as we speak and that, too, will be sent for printing as soon as is practicable. We apologise unreservedly to all those who ordered this version of the book for the delays. As recompense, we will be including a surprise bonus in book, which will make it even more complete than it already is. This is now likely to appear sometime in February.
