What’s everyone reading this weekend? Here in the Valancrypt we have a couple of good ones going: Dylan Dog #62 and a collection of three odd tales by the author of Rest in Agony.

#TBT That time Andrew Graham-Dixon was showing off some of our Gothic Classics on BBC Four's 'The Art of Gothic: Britain's Midnight Hour' 🦇

New reviews for our two most recent collections...
ALL I EVER DREAMED by Michael Blumlein, reviewed by Locus Magazine:
“Blumlein has long brought a sharply original perspective to his science fiction ... powerful and bizarre ... stylistically adventurous.”
FIGURES UNSEEN by Steve Rasnic Tem, reviewed in the Toronto Star:
“In this welcome edition of more than thirty of Tem’s best stories, those readers just arriving at the party can explore the depth of feeling and elusive but powerful employment of mood and symbol in this under-appreciated author’s work ... There are ghosts, real and imagined, phantoms and spectres, surreal images and haunted landscapes ... An incredible collection.”

Our fourth and final October Horror Month title will be WORMS by "James R. Montague" (yes, a blatant allusion to M.R. James). Behind the pseudonym was Christopher Wood, screenwriter for two of the best James Bond films. The book is wonderfully slimy fun! Amazing cover art by @moscativision

After much interest we decided to offer the Tiki edition in hardcover as well as paperback. The Tiki edition is only available via our website. Paypal preorder buttons are now up!

Our Vintage Thrills and Chills catalogue reprints hard-to-find titles from the 1930s and '40s, including stories of mystery, crime and the macabre, often with a generous dose of the supernatural. Three of our most recent releases: THE SIX QUEER THINGS (1937) which the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette called “A rip-roaring tale of mediums, psychic research and the powers of darkness.” ... THE OTHER PASSENGER (1944), the rare unabridged edition of John Keir Cross's landmark collection of weird stories ... THE TRAVELLING GRAVE AND OTHER STORIES (1948) by a master of supernatural and macabre fiction, L. P. Hartley. Check out these and many more over on our website!

Reposted from @keithbrownvoice ... Hey friends and sci-fi fans! Wanna hear me read you a story?? How about one the Saturday Review called, “Perhaps even more terrifying [than Orwell’s 1984]” ?? First published in 1953, “One” earned critical comparisons to the great dystopian novels of Orwell and Huxley. It is both a gripping psychological thriller and an indictment of totalitarianism which, as Philip Boakes argues in the new introduction to this edition, is more relevant than ever.
Available now from Audible, iTunes and Amazon! This was a gripping experience to narrate and I hope you enjoy. Wonderful to collaborate with @valancourtbooks in bringing this rare title to a new audience. (Also, for you #audiobook lovers who might enjoy writing an honest review of the title ... message @keithbrownvoice 😊) .
Book Description:
In a dateless future, a seemingly benevolent totalitarian State has eliminated poverty, crime, war, and religious intolerance and brought the happiness of conformity to its people. Professor Burden thinks he too is a loyal citizen, but the Department of Internal Examination discovers that he secretly values his individuality. Believing Burden to be a threat to the continued existence of the State, an examiner named Lark decides to cure him of his heresy and return him to being a normal, productive member of society—by persuasion if possible, but by complete obliteration of his identity if necessary.
