Blurb:

The fourth in our series of PS Showcase mini-collections of short stories from some of genre fiction’s best up-and-coming writers.

In the introduction to this collection Ramsey Campbell states that the two modern masters of urban weirdness are Thomas Ligotti and Mark Samuels. Inside this book you will find weird things indeed, not least the likes of:

The fungus-riddled mannequin in the lunatic asylum
The reconstruction company that works with life and death
The legal nightmare where the sane are guilty
A horror writing convention taken over by black magic cannibals
The Punch and Judy show broadcast live after death
The strange fate of the reincarnation of H.P. Lovecraft

Black Book of Horror, Best New Horror‘s 17, 18 and 19, Summer Chills and now a bootleg Word document – it’s like i’ve been collecting Glyphotech in installments. Anyway, yesterdays unforgettable encounter with the beyond cantankerous horror legend Edmund Bertrand in The Cannibal Kings Of Horror has reminded me that i’ve been meaning to splash out on Glyphotech ever since I read the ghoulish Death Lines for the noughties, Sentinels, way back in the previous Best New Horror, so some other poor sod will be due more Postal Order fun and games shortly! Delighted to see that the collection reprints an original from the admirably sociopath Mr. Bertrand and am looking forward to a return match with Regina vs. Zoskia from Charles’ first Black Book as the final, terrible revelation made a deeply unpleasant impression at the time.

As with previous PS Showcase editions, the print run is limited to 300 copies: order direct from P.S. Publishing.
