Tartarus Press News – Night Voices by Robert Aickman(0)
Tartarus Press are delighted to announce that their next publication will be Night Voices by Robert Aickman. Reprinting this eighth volume of Aickman’s short stories means that all of his short fiction is now in print, and they hope to keep it that way, especially as 2014 will be Aickman’s centenary year.

We have added Aickman’s fantasy novella ‘The Model’, along with his ‘Essay’ written on winning the First World Fantasy Award, and his Introductions to The Fontana Book of Great Ghost Stories. The volume contains an ‘Introduction’ by Barry Humphries, which is bookended by the reminiscence ‘Robert Remembered’ by Ramsey Campbell.
Night Voices is a sewn hardback of 316+ vii pages, printed lithographically, with silk ribbon marker, head and tailbands, and d/w. Price £32.50

Cemetery Dance Publications commissioned a spectacular two-volume anthology project under the editorship of noted author and historian of the horror genre, John Pelan.
John selected one story published during each year of the 20th Century (1901-2000) as the most notable story of that year — all 100 stories were then collected in this amazing two volume set to be published as The Century’s Best Horror Fiction.
The ground rules were simple: Only one selection per author. Only one selection per year.
Two huge volumes, one hundred authors, one hundred classic stories, more than 700,000 words of fiction — history in the making!’
