Case Notes

Blurb

WE ALL GO A LITTLE MAD SOMETIMES . . . When journalist Robert Stanhope arrives at the Crowsmoor asylum for the criminally insane to interview the institute’s enigmatic director, Dr Lionel Parrish, little does he realise that an apparently simple series of tests will lead him into a terrifying world of murder and insanity . . . In this chilling new anthology, compiled by multiple award-winning editor Stephen Jones, some of the biggest and brightest name in horror and crime fiction come together to bring you twisted tales of psychos, schizoids and serial-killers, many with a supernatural twist. Reggie Oliver revives Edgar Allan Poe’s wily French detective C. Auguste Dupin, there is a new “Bryant & May” London mystery from Christopher Fowler, child actor turned private eye Marty Burns investigates a quirky Hollywood case by Jay Russell, and international best-selling author Michael Marshall returns to The Straw Men conspiracy. With a never-before-published Introduction by Robert Bloch (author of Psycho), along with one of his most famous and iconic stories, this volume also features an original wraparound sequence in the style of the author by John Llewellyn Probert. Add classic reprints by R. Chetwynd-Hayes, Basil Copper and Dennis Etchison, along with original fiction by Peter Crowther, Brian Hodge, Richard Christian Matheson, Paul McAuley, Lisa Morton, Robert Shearman, Steve Rasnic Tem and many others, and you would have to be out of your mind not to take a stab at these stories!

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.

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.

Monsterrific stories by top names in horror writing

Vampires, Werewolves, Zombies, Ghouls . . . these and many other Creatures of the Night are featured in this bumper collection of stories by such authors as Clive Barker, Harlan Ellison, Ramsey Campbell, Brian Lumley, Tanith Lee, Michael Marshall Smith, Kim Newman, Joe R. Lansdale, Lisa Tuttle, R. Chetwynd-Hayes, Basil Copper and many others. Here you’ll discover creatures both unnatural and man made, as the walking dead rise from their graves, immortal bloodsuckers seek human nourishment, deformed monstrosities pursue their victims across the countryside, and the ugliest of nightmares is revealed to have a soul. Drawn from the pages of legend and literature, these stories feature Things that slither, stagger, swoop, stomp and scamper. So bolt the doors, lock the windows and shiver in the shadows, because no-one is safe when the Monsters are loose .
