“An outstanding British writer in the genre.”
“Britian’s Leading Purveyor of the macabre.”
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 the award-winning Dark Terrors series, rare and collectible compilations edited by Stephen Jones and Peter Haining, and the author’s own highly-prized books from Fedogan & Bremer and Sarob Press, these three extensive collections contain more than four decades’ worth of weird fiction from one of the genre’s most renowned practitioners.
In this third volume you will find such classics of the macabre as ‘When Greek Meets Greek’, ‘Ill Met by Daylight’, ‘There Lies the Danger . . .’ and the author’s preferred version of his final published short story, ‘Voices in the Water’.
With an affectionate Introduction by author Christopher Fowler, Volume Three of Darkness, Mist and Shadow: The Collected Macabre Tales of Basil Copper also contains original illustrations by Randy Broecker, Les Edwards, Bob Eggleton and Allen Koszowski, along with a stunning cover painting by Stephen E. Fabian.
