Big Announcements

I’m super happy to announce that DarkFuse will be publishing my novella Conduits. This was, despite its tragic inspiration (the death of a beloved friend), a lot of fun to write. It’s my love letter to Japanese horror and quantum mechanics, and I’m glad it’s in such good hands. More details to come!

1403626_578692862179381_24516031_o The other upcoming publication (so far) is a reprint of my 2004 story “A Taste for It” in the Of Devils and Deviants anthology, which should be out February 2014 from Crowded Quarantine Publications. If you like Storyville hookers and cannibalism, this one’s for you. The cover is great, too!

Last but certainly not least, come back this Friday, Nov. 29, when I’ll be featuring Katie Kenyhercz (aka Katie McGinley), author of the Las Vegas Sinners hockey romance series.

Mental Ward: Stories From the Asylum

MentalWard_Front_FinalSanatorium, mental ward, psychiatric hospital – they’re all the same. Places where the infirm, the crazy, and the certifiable go for treatment… Or what passes for ‘treatment’.

This is a collection of stories of bedlam taking place within the padded walls of an institution. Stories of experiments gone wrong, patients revolting against the staff, or even the deranged doings of those charged with giving care. They are sick, depraved, and atrocious – the type of stories that rarely reach the light of day.

Are you brave enough to crawl inside the minds of the thirteen authors who wrote these tales… Or are you afraid you’ll be locked up for peeking?

Featuring the talents of:
Delphine Boswell, Alex Chase, Sean Conway, Megan Dorei, A.A. Garrison, Tom Howard, Russell Linton, Suzie Lockhart and Bruce Lockhart 2nd, Jennifer Loring, Sergio Palumbo, Joseph A. Pinto, and D.M. Smith

Grimm and Grimmer Volume Two

GGvolumetwo From Amazon.com’s description: “In the second volume of our Grimm and Grimmer series of retold fairy tales, we present six new or established writers who bring together a collection of tasty treats.
Reading the original tales, you realise how many of those tales were simple lessons about behaviour and survival. Some were lessons we could still agree with; be kind to those who seem poor and dirty and powerless. Behave pleasantly to those around you. Keep your eyes open. Note what happens to others who have gone on this quest before you. Be brave. Be crafty.
In this anthology our six tales present alternate versions of these lessons. In Matthew Sylvester’s Death’s Messengers, a futuristic soldier makes a choice that extends his life. In Ed Ahern’s Happily Ever After, the stereotypes of Prince and Princess are subverted, just as ‘One Hundred Lost Years’ by Jennifer Loring teaches us not to judge a book by its cover. In Ready or Not by Nancy Brashear, we see a dark version of Hansel and Gretel, whilst Paved with Gold by Ed Fortune, shows us that all that glitters is not gold. And in Stewart Hotston’s Rumpeltrollskin, the lesson is . . beware a fool’s bargain. So step in and enjoy these brand new twisted fairy tales.”

The paperback version will be out soon, but you can grab the Kindle edition now for only $2.99!

SST Publications Special Hardcover Limited Editions

My zombie story, “In Remembrance,” appears in this edition, but I’m really posting because the folks at SST Publications are great to work with, and they deserve your support. Order yours today!

image.jpeg We are very happy to announce that the Special Hardcover Limited Editions of issue #1 are now available to pre-order! The pre-order window will be open for 60 days and will close May 22nd, 2013. The print run for the Special Limited Signed & Numbered Edition will then be set and no more copies can be ordered. So make sure you order your copy today! Don’t leave it in case you forget and miss the pre-order window!

Please Note: The Signed & Lettered Edition is limited to only 52 copies and once they’re gone, they’re gone! If you’d like one of these very collectable editions please make sure you order now before they sell out.

People who pre-order the Limited Edition Hardcovers will be the first to hear about (and be able to order) any other issues we publish.

The Hardcover Special Limited Signed & Numbered Edition is signed & numbered by the editor and will feature exclusive original artwork by Luke Spooner on the limitation page created especially just for this edition, and will never appear anywhere else. These copies are available for only £29.95 with FREE worldwide shipping*!

The Hardcover Special Limited Signed & Lettered Edition is signed & lettered by the editor and available in only 52 copies. This edition will also feature exclusive original artwork by Luke Spooner (different from the numbered edition) on the limitation page created especially just for this lettered edition, and will also never appear anywhere else. These copies are available for only £49.95 with FREE worldwide shipping*!

* FREE worldwide shipping: UK is by 1st Class Post and overseas is by Surface Mail. Please Note: Surface Mail can take between 4 to 8 weeks for delivery. We also offer overseas customers the option of paying extra for Airmail Shipping (just £5.00 more), but we love FREE shipping so we thought it would be great to offer it to our customers!

Both of these very collectable hardcover editions will be printed in FULL COLOUR throughout and will feature exclusive original artwork on the limitation page. The books are case laminate, which is basically a hardcover book without a dust jacket. The cover artwork is printed directly onto the hardcover case. They will be printed using Premium Colour high-quality printing on 70#, 378 PPI White paper, as opposed to the Standard Colour printing of the magazine which is printed on 50#, 512 PPI White paper. So the paper stock for the hardcover editions is thicker and better quality and the interior full colour printing quality is much superior. The magazine print and production quality is excellent but the quality of the hardcovers will be much, much higher!

PLEASE NOTE: Copies are allocated on a first-come first-served basis. You are very welcome to request a specific number or letter and we will try our best to accommodate. We’re sorry but we cannot guarantee to allocate the copy/copies you ask for.

These very collectable editions are exclusively available to order from SST Publications. Please visit the link below to the page where you can see the cover art, the full table of contents and also buy now using PayPal.

http://sstpublications.co.uk/sst/Magazines/Tales-of-Obscenity-1-Hardcovers.html

We estimate that the publication date for these special hardcover editions will be around August 2013.

We are very sorry but:
We cannot offer any wholesale discounts to booksellers on these because of the very limited print run. But booksellers are more than welcome to order copies at full price.

We cannot accept any discount vouchers or codes on these hardcover editions.

The Hardcover Editions of the magazine are not included in the magazine Lifetime Subscriptions.

PLEASE NOTE: As with all of our titles we never personally make any money, any and all profits made are put straight back into publishing our future titles. We publish stuff because we really LOVE to do it. It would be fantastic to be able to make a living from SST Publications but we are really happy just as long as we can recover our costs so we can publish our next title. Thank you very much for your support!
