The Alchemy Press is delighted to publish Les Vacances by Phil Sloman, as a stand-alone novella. Due at the end of April.
Monasteries rising and falling. Heretics and stakes and fire. There were rebellions and revolution and tales of abundance and happiness and new beginnings. Within the book there were also lies and omissions and fallacies all designed to gloss over a dark past many had long forgotten. Many but not all. The vacation of a lifetime.
The new collection from Tina Rath due on 16th April.
Tina Rath’s twenty-plus tales exhibit an innate sense of structure that allows for a satisfying conclusion – and often a sting in the tail. These are unashamedly entertaining stories, dark fantasy with a touch of humour, that display a deftness of touch inviting us to enjoy the words on the page. They don’t outstay their welcome or labour their points because they don’t need to – Tina Rath knows how a story works. And they work well. Very well indeed.
Some of The Alchemy Press’s limited edition hardcovers are going for a song via Amazon. Okay, not a song, as such … but we are selling brand new copies at a heavy discount. Now is a good time to buy the book you’ve been intending to read!
Here is a round up of Alchemy Press collections. As you can tell from the range of anthologies and collections we’ve published, we are a great fan of short fiction. Click on the image for further information on each title.
Here’s an early look at the cover for Music in the Bone and Other Stories. This will be the first collection from British writer Marion Pitman, a book that all dark fantasy/horror readers will want to read. Music in the Bone will be launched at FantasyCon 2015 in Nottingham this October — then via good online book sellers.
It’s time to announce the forthcoming collection by Paul Kane: Monsters will be launched this summer. The book will feature an introduction by Nicholas Vince — full details to follow. In the meantime, tale a peek at the cover: art work by the fabulous Clive Barker and designed by the equally fab Christian Francis.
