—All Things Horror
Collected together for the first time in three paperback volumes from PS Publishing are all the supernatural and macabre short stories and novellas of legendary British writer Basil Copper.
Drawn from numerous collections, anthologies and magazines as varied as New Tales of the Chthulhu Mythos, rare and collectible compilations edited by Peter Haining and Richard Dalby, and the author’s own highly-prized books from Arkham House and Robert Hale, these three extensive collections contain more than four decades’ worth of weird fiction from one of the genre’s most renowned practitioners.
In this second volume you will find such classics of the macabre as ‘The Flabby Men’, the author’s terrifying Cthulhu Mythos novella ‘Shaft Number 247’, ‘The Candle in the Skull’ (read over Hallowe’en on BBC Radio 4), the acclaimed Lovecraftian novella ‘Beyond the Reef’ and ‘Bright Blades Gleaming’.
With a critical Introduction by broadcaster Kim Newman, Volume Two of Darkness, Mist and Shadow: The Collected Macabre Tales of Basil Copper also contains original illustrations by Dave Carson and Bob Eggleton, along with a stunning cover painting by Stephen E. Fabian.
