Welcome to the first official newsletter of the new year. We have a MAJOR announcement coming soon from Stark House, so stay tuned, we will let you know here first....
Elisabeth Sanxay Holding
Speak of the Devil / The Obstinate Murderer
Holding has been hailed by such wide-ranging tastes as that of Raymond Chandler, Sarah Weinman and Christopher Morley. Her novels have been filmed, her stories collected into year’s best anthologies. Here we present two more of her superlative suspense classics, the first one a story of murder at a Caribbean resort hotel, the second the story of an aging alcoholic who is called in to solve a murder that hasn’t happened yet. New introduction by Ed Gorman. Due January/February 2015.
W. R. Burnett
Little Men, Big World / Vanity Row
Two novels that probe the political corruption of a big Midwestern city, where the important deals are always made behind closed doors, and the real power is wielded behind the throne. Burnett, one of the most important crime writers of the 20th century, is the author of High Sierra, Little Caesar and The Asphalt Jungle. Includes a new introduction by Rick Ollerman. Due March 2015.
And from one of H. P. Lovecraft's favorite authors, we have another non-crime offering from Algernon Blackwood. This one contains many that have not been reprinted so if you're a fan, this one is a treat.
The Face of the Earth
Blackwood biographer Mike Ashley has created a new collection of stories and essays by the master supernaturalist, most of which have never been in book format before. Also included is a definitive bibliography of Blackwood’s writings as well as a new introduction by Ashley. A publishing event for classic horror fans! Due April 2015.
So, until next time, keep reading, and if you have any questions about the subscribing or unsubscribing to the newsletter, or orders for books, just drop us a line here. And keep a look out for our major announcement. We won't keep you waiting long.
