Chilling Ghost Update — Hauntings Set to Start at Next Month End
The word is out that Flame Tree Publishing’s upcoming CHILLING GHOST SHORT STORIES anthology (see July 6, June 21) is at the printer, along with two companion volumes, CHILLING HORROR SHORT STORIES and SCIENCE FICTION SHORT STORIES. The printer, in turn, is located near Venice Italy with delivery expected in the UK by mid-August, and from there to the US distributor by, hopefully, that month’s end.
My part in the potpourri is called “Victorians,” originally published in GOTHIC GHOSTS (Tor Books, 1997; also reprinted in my 2001 collection STRANGE MISTRESSES: TALES OF WONDER AND ROMANCE), a story of architecture and awakening memories, and will rub shoulders with offerings by other current writers as well as such past giants as Willkie Collins, Washington Irving, Algeron Blackwood, and Sheridan Le Fanu. More information, including ordering when the time comes, will be passed on as it becomes known.
