Author Biographies

Blurb:

Twenty-five new short stories of hot blood, midnight pleasures and inhuman passion. Paranormal romance is currently the fastest-growing new fiction genre – vampire romance is its most popular form. Top names include Caitlin R. Kiernan, Lilith Saintcrow, Karen Chance, and Keri Arthur.

The specially commissioned stories include: Susan Sizemore’s Dancing With The Star: An LA vampire meets the (dying) movie star of her dreams.
CT Adams and Cathy Clamp’s To Ease the Rage: Even vampires need a police force.
Amanda Ashley’s The Music of the Night: The Phantom of the Opera‘s biggest fan gets up close and personal

The Book
from the biggest names in vampire romance, here are 25 new tales of a hunger like no other. Paranormal romance s now a supernatural force to be reckoned with. Although packed with a menagerie of werewolves, shape-shifters, and assorted demons, its undisputed king is none other than our favourite bloodsucker – the vampire.

Let Karen Chance, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Lilith Saintcrow, Keri Arthur, Kimberley Raye, Vicki Pettersson and others take you hot-blooded on the trail of the sexiest creatures of the night. Witness the bewildering array of complex vampire codes of conduct, dark ritual and dating practices as they seduce the locals and engage in the most sensual encounters you will sink your teeth into this some of the grave.

The Editor
Trisha Telep manages the romance section of the world-famous Murder One bookshop in London, which specializes in American imports. She is co-author of The Mammoth Book of the Kama Sutra.

Anon – The Man in Black

Posted by demonik on October 9, 2008

Anon – The Man in Black: Macabre Stories from Fear on Four (BBC, 1990)


[image]

Foreword – The Man In Black

William F. Harvey – The Beast with Five Fingers
Graeme Fife – Snipe 3909
David Buck – The Dead Drummer (Adapted by Haydn Middleton from an original radio script.)
Stephen Dunstone – Fat Andy
Katherine Nicholas – The Dispossessed Daughter
Stanley Ellin – The Specialty of the House
E. F. Benson – The Face
James Saunders – A Child Crying
Stephen Gallagher – The Horn
W. W. Jacobs – The Monkey’s Paw
Roald Dahl – William and Mary
Bert Coules – Every Detail But One
J. C. W. Brook – The Snowman Killing
Nick Warburton – His Last Card
Bram Stoker – The Judge’s House
Gwen Cherrell – Dreaming of Thee
Stephen Gallagher – By the River, Fontainebleau
Elizabeth Bowen – Hand in Glove
Bert Coules – The Journey Home
Robert Westall – St. Austin Friars
Martyn Wade – Soul Searching
Nick Warburton – Music Lovers
William Ingram – Mind Well the Tree
John Wyndham – Survival
James Saunders – Day at the Dentist’s

I don’t have a copy but a quick scrutiny of the contents suggests this as a thoughtful mix of the new and the over-familiar-but-that-doesn’t-make-‘em-bad. Wasn’t the original radio ‘Man In Black’ the super-creepy Valentine Dyall of City Of The Dead/ The Haunting fame? I’m sure Day At The Dentist’s has been favourably remarked on Vault Mk. I and I can vouch for the all round superbness Stephen Gallagher’s superlative The Horn.

Thanks to John Mains for the cover scan!
