This is a (relatively) brief reminder of this weekend’s activities. We will be attending Edge Lit 4 (in the Quad in the centre of Derby) selling books and launching two new titles. Not only that, The Alchemy Press is proudly sponsoring the panel “Looking Back – How Much History Does Fantasy Fiction Need?” with Stephen Deas in the chair alongside panellists Joanne Harris, Tom Lloyd, Freda Warrington and Angus Watson. This panel starts at 11.30 am in Cinema 2.
Tickets for Edge Lit are almost gone so if you want to attend visit their website now.
In the afternoon – at 3.15 in the Green Room – we are launching two new collections: Monsters by Paul Kane and Evocations by James Brogden.
New York has alligators in its sewers; Birmingham has man-eating Octopuses in its canals. What sacrifices were offered in order to build the railway? Held captive in a tower-block; can she escape? What does his non-existent hand touch? Roadkill … or something worse? What is it like, waiting to become a ghost? Discover these chilling horrors and many more in Evocations…
When you read Monsters be afraid. Be incredibly afraid … because the Monsters are here! Vampires, werewolves, zombies, witches, this collection from the imagination of award-winning and bestselling author Paul Kane has them all! Including the first reprint of ‘Dracula in Love’ in over a decade, the original short story the movie Weeping Woman was based on, plus an introduction by Nicholas Vince (who portrayed Chatterer Cenobite in the Hellraiser movies and Kinski in Nightbreed) and cover art by the legendary Clive Barker, this is one book you really should be afraid to miss!
Both books will be available as paperbacks. We also have a very limited run of 30 signed and numbered copies of Monsters with which you’ll receive a free DVD of the short film The Weeping Woman based on Paul’s story – printed just for Edge Lit. Any unsold copies will be available via The Alchemy Press after the weekend. The paperback editions will then be available from the usual online dealers, along with eBook editions.
