Epilogue
Blurb:
In the Library of the Damned, hidden away amongst that vast depository of ancient wisdom, there exists a certain bookcase where the most decadent, the most blasphemous of tomes sit upon a dusty shelf. And amongst those titles that should never be named, there is one volume that is he most terrible, the most hideous of them all. That book is the very Lexicon of Fear itself. But, long ago, some of its pages were ripped from the binding and spirited away by a lowly student of the ancient science of Horrorology, determined that one day the secrets contained therein would be shared with the world. And now that day has come. These are the words that comprise the very language of horror itself, and the tales they tell are not for the fainthearted. But be warned: once you have read them, there is no turning back. Soon, you too will know the true meanings of fear . . .

Forthcoming Mammoth publications from Constable-Robinsons. October & November 2012.
Stephen Jones (ed.) – Zombie Apocalypse: Fightback (Robinson, October 2012)

Zombie Apocalypse: Fightback

Sequel to the bestselling Zombie Apocalypse! – 18,000 copies sold in the UK

This long-awaited follow-up to Zombie Apocalypse! is once again a ‘mosaic novel’ that weaves together contributions from big-name horror writers in the form of essays, reports, letters, official documents and transcripts to create a coherent and compelling narrative. In volume one, old-school, flesh-eating zombies spread ‘The Death’ around the world. Now, the fightback begins, spearheaded by an equally stellar line-up of contributors, from Neil Gaiman, Sarah Pinborough and Michael Marshall Smith to Lisa Tuttle, Roz Kaveney and Christopher Fowler, and master-minded by multi award-winning horror anthologist Stephen Jones.

This will be a must-have for the many fans of the first book as well as the ever-expanding legions of zombie and horror fans..

Stephen Jones (ed.) – Best New Horror 23 (Robinson, October 2012)

Best New Horror 23

New volume in a series now into its 23rd year and winner of the World Fantasy Award, British Fantasy Award and International Horror Guild Award

Every single horror writer of note has contributed at some point to the Best New Horror series, compiled by internationally acclaimed horror anthologist Stephen Jones and dedicated to presenting the best in contemporary horror and dark fantasy fiction.

This year’s darkest, most exceptional tales of terror showcase new short stories from both contemporary masters of the macabre as well as exceptional newcomers. With top-name contributors – such as Joan Aitken, Ramsey Campbell, Christopher Fowler, Joe R. Lansdale, John Ajvide Lindqvist, Robert Silverberg, Michael Marshall Smith and Evangeline Walton – a comprehensive overview of the horror year, a necrology of recently departed luminaries and an exhaustive list of indispensable addresses, this series remains the world’s leading annual horror anthology and the key event in the horror calendar for all horror fans, young and old.

Peter Normanton – The Mammoth Book of Slasher Movies (Robinson, October 2012)

Mammoth Book Of Slasher Films

A classic gorefest for all horror lovers – the most gloriously gory slasher and splatter horror movies of the past sixty years.

You can scream all you want, but it won’t make them stop in this compendium of more than 60 grisly, gruesome years of slasher and splatter movies – from genre-hopping Danny Boyle’s first horror film, 28 Days Later, to gore-meister Lucio Fulci’s Zombie Flesh Eaters. Here you will find the low-down on some 250 movies, with entries from 23 different countries – assembled by born-again slasher fan Peter Normanton.

This wonderfully macabre compilation is a definite must-have for all aficionados of the slasher and splatter movie sub-genres and general horror fans alike. The index, which includes every movie mentioned in the A–Z and accompanying notes, runs to 540 movies. The book includes the full list of video nasties that the UK government has attempted to ban.

Marie O’Regan – Mammoth Book Of Ghost Stories By Women (Robinson, November 2012)

Mammoth Book Of Ghost Stories By Women

A mesmerizing spin on the modern dark tale – 25 haunting stories showcasing writing by women on the supernatural and the macabre

Ghost stories are a perennial favourite, and British Fantasy Award-nominated horror and dark fantasy writer Marie O’Regan has put together this unforgettable selection of dark, sensational, horrifying stories by acclaimed female writers.

Alongside a handful of reprints, both classic and contemporary, are spectral tales by outstanding talents, such as Kelley Armstrong, Muriel Gray, Nancy Holder, Nancy Kilpatrick, Sarah Langan, Gail Z. Martin, Elizabeth Massie, Yvonne Navarro, Sarah Pinborough, Lilith Saintcrow, Lisa Tuttle among others.

This haunting anthology is subtly beguiling, yet brings a new sense of daring to the modern dark tale and a hard-edged twist to traditional horror.

Details and, most likely, individual threads on each to follow over coming days/ weeks/ months. Five very exciting prospects, i’m sure you’ll agree.
