From the Eden Book Society's backlist of horror novellas, Dead Ink Books has reprinted the 1972 titles Holt House by L.G. Vey, Judderman by D.A. Northwood, A Dedicated Friend by Shirley Longford, Starve Acre by Jonathan Buckley, Plunge Hill: A Case Study by J.M. McVulpin, and The Castle by Chuck Valentine.

Dead Letters

Dead Letters is an anthology 'of the undelivered, the missing, the returned', edited by Conrad Williams and published by Titan. Authors received an item of aberrant post as a writing prompt; this was in the mysterious package that came through my letter box, inspiring my story, 'Ausland'. Dead Letters was shortlisted in the Best Anthology category of the British Fantasy Awards 2017.
