Innsmouth Gold

Talman gave me a sceptical look. It wasn’t that he thought I was crazy, but maybe just a little nuts.

‘Well, George,’ he said at last, ‘I think you’ve been drinking too much of that sour mash in the Kentucky sun!’ I had been living south of the line for five years, that part was certainly true. As for the whisky, I didn’t touch the stuff. Talman and I had been firm friends for around twenty years, a long relationship established through our mutual love of North American wildlife. We’d completed several expeditions together over the years on mainland America, and also once into the forested wilds of northern Canada. Eventually, my teaching commitments had meant a move of home, but luckily, or unluckily, as things worked out, half a decade on had found me back in my beloved Boston. The downside of that was I had no job and very little money.

August Newsletter

August comes around and plenty to talk about here at Alton Towers. I mean Alchemy Towers (easy mistake – Alton Towers is about four miles away from here).

We are always ready to drop keyboards and spring into action to support events in striking distance of the Moorlands – and one such date was Saturday 22 August, when the Alchemy Press attended the Stafford Indoor Market for the Stafford Book Fair. We  had all our current titles on sale, including the recently published Monsters by Paul Kane and Evocations by James Brogden, along with Dead Water and Other Weird Tales by David A Sutton, Give Me These Moments Back by Mike Chinn, Leinster Gardens and Other Subtleties by Jan Edwards, Tell No Lies by John Grant and our backlist (see the website for full catalogue)

Buying Alchemy books

postcard A 003a2

Alchemy Press titles are available online from Amazon and other dealers. But if you are keen to avoid Amazon and its associated companies take a look at Wordery, a UK book seller. As you can see via this link, they have a nice array of our titles all ready to purchase. (Note, the site muddles up Alchemy Press titles along with similarly named imprints.)

 

Dead Water reviewed

DEAD WATER COVER 003c

Dead Water and Other Weird Tales by David A Sutton — published a few months back by The Alchemy Press — gets a super review on The Book Lover’s Boudoir website.

The tales in this collection are creepy, atmospheric, unsettling and disturbing, the kind of tales to keep you awake at night, huddled under the covers and clutching a brightly lit torch for dear life while something slivers in the shadows.

Available in print and eBook formats from Amazon and elsewhere (DRM free so you can convert to non-Kindle formats).

 

April/May Newsletter

monsters evocations

Sorry, we’re a bit late this time. Blame the balmy spring weather (well, it’s not raining today). When we can drag ourselves away from the garden and the (occasional) sunshine there are many books in the Alchemy Press edit/production room, to be added to the list over the following months. Imminent are:

  • Monsters by Paul Kane, with an introduction by Nicholas Vince (with fabulous cover art by Clive Barker).
  • Evocations by James Brogden, a collection of this fine writer’s horror and weird tales.

Monsters will be published in two editions – the hardcover coming with a special gift! These books will be launched at Edge Lit in Derby this coming July

Also in the pipeline for 2015 are collections from Anne Nicholls, Marion Pitman and others (real goodies in the line up, we promise).
