Edgar Allan Poe Library of Weird Fiction Limited Edition Hardcover

Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) is a pioneering writer of weird fiction. His intense focus on the psychology of terror, his mastery of both psychological and supernatural horror, and his utilization of a dense, frenetic, and hypnotic prose style have made him not merely a master of the weird tale but the virtual founder of the short story.

This volume contains all the major weird works of Poe, from such early tales as Metzengerstein and Berenice to such masterworks as Ligeia and The Fall of the House of Usher to such late stories as The Cask of Amontillado and Hop-Frog. Poe’s one novel, The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym, is included, as is his landmark detective story, The Murders in the Rue Morgue, which features a considerable dose of physical horror. In addition, many of Poe’s weird poems — The City in the Sea, The Raven, Ulalume, Annabel Lee, and others — are included. The most accurate and authoritative texts are used, and the volume concludes with a bibliography of first apparances of all the items included.

The volume is edited by S. T. Joshi, a leading authority on weird fiction. Joshi is the author of The Weird Tale (1990),The Modern Weird Tale (2001), and Unutterable Horror: A History of Supernatural Fiction (2012), and he has prepared editions of the work of H.P. Lovecraft, Lord Dunsany, Arthur Machen, Ambrose Bierce, and many other weird writers.

H. P. Lovecraft Library of Weird Fiction Limited Edition Hardcover

H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) is widely recognized as the twentieth century’s greatest master of weird fiction. Drawing inspiration from such of his predecessors as Edgar Allan Poe, Lord Dunsany, and Arthur Machen, Lovecraft evolved a highly original pseudomythology — later named the Cthulhu Mythos — that underlies many of his most powerful tales. Envisioning the coming to earth of immensely powerful alien entities from the farthest reaches of the universe, this pseudomythology underscored the cosmic perspective that Lovecraft made his signature contribution to weird fiction.

This volume contains such major tales as The Call of Cthulhu, The Whisperer in Darkness, At the Mountains of Madness, and The Shadow out of Time. In addition, important early tales such as The Outsider and The Rats in the Walls are included, presenting the full range of Lovecraft’s stories from the beginning to the end of his career. The most accurate and authoritative texts are used, and the volume concludes with a bibliography of first apparances of all the items included.

The volume is edited by S. T. Joshi, a leading authority on weird fiction. Joshi is the author of The Weird Tale (1990),The Modern Weird Tale (2001), and Unutterable Horror: A History of Supernatural Fiction (2012), and he has prepared editions of the work of H.P. Lovecraft, Lord Dunsany, Arthur Machen, Ambrose Bierce, and many other weird writers.

William Hope Hodgson Library of Weird Fiction Limited Edition Hardcover

William Hope Hodgson (1877-1918) was a leading writer of weird fiction whose career was tragically cut short by his death in World War I. During a span of less than fifteen years, Hodgson wrote four novels and dozens of short stories, establishing himself as a pioneering writer of sea horror tales — many of them inspired by his own experiences as a sailor.

This volume features two of Hodgson’s best short novels, The House on the Borderland and The Ghost Pirates, along with an array of his best short stories. These include such classic tales as The Derelict and The Voice in the Night, along with several tales revolving around the psychic detective Thomas Carnacki. The most accurate and authoritative texts are used, and the volume concludes with a bibliography of first apparances of all the items included.

The volume is edited by S. T. Joshi, a leading authority on weird fiction. Joshi is the author of The Weird Tale (1990),The Modern Weird Tale (2001), and Unutterable Horror: A History of Supernatural Fiction (2012), and he has prepared editions of the work of H.P.

Deadfall Hotel by Steve Rasnic Tem Signed Limited Edition Hardcover

Reminiscent of Ray Bradbury with the atmosphere of Edward Gorey, Deadfall Hotel guides you through a season spent in the ultimate haunted hotel. Told through the story of a widower who takes the job of manager at a remote hotel where the guests are not quite like you and me, Deadfall Hotel chronicles what happens when nightmares seek a place of sanctuary. This literary exploration of the roots of horror in the collective unconscious may be the Bram Stoker, British Fantasy, and World Fantasy award-winning author’s finest creation to date.

This is an original publication: a new novel, published for the first time. The book is illustrated with ten new artworks created by Danish artist John Kenn Mortensen. His drawings evoke the spirit of Edward Gorey but have a sardonic sense of humor all their own. The book has illustrated endpapers, a full printed cloth binding, ribbon marker, head and tail bands, and a reinforced binding. In addition to the novel, there is an afterword by Tem, the original story Bloodwolf, published in Shadows, and a new story, Skullbees, which will not be reprinted anywhere. The story was written specifically for one of the Mortensen illustrations.

Each numbered copy signed by Steve Rasnic Tem and John Kenn Mortensen. The edition is limited to 300 copies for sale. Sample page spreads appear below.

Salem's Lot Studies in the Horror Film Sewn Paperback

Few horror films in the history of television can boast the deadly seriousness, inspired casting, indelible images and lingering impact of Salem’s Lot. Tobe Hooper’s adaptation of Stephen King’s 1975 novel about vampires that infest a small Maine town was first broadcast in November 1979.

The three-hour film featured unforgettable performances by an array of stars — James Mason, David Soul, Lew Ayres, Bonnie Bedelia — along with one of the most truly terrifying monsters in the history of movies: the feral vampire Mr Barlow played by Reggie Nalder.

This book documents the gestation and production of the film. There are reminiscences from cast and crew, including new and exclusive interviews with Tobe Hooper, David Soul, cinematographer Jules Brenner and producer Richard Kobritz; dozens of images, including many never before published behind-the-scenes production stills; deleted scenes from the original teleplay; foreign posters and artwork inspired by the film; photographs of Ferndale, California, where the exteriors of Salem’s Lot were filmed; and much, much more.

 

Details

Premium Collector's Hardcover Edition

  • Four color printing throughout on coated stock.
  • Gallery of poster and artwork.
  • Pictures of Ferndale, California, today, contrasted with similar views from the film.
  • New interviews with Tobe Hooper, David Soul, Richard Kobritz, and others.

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Mar 2014

    I have not read this book yet,but I am familiar with Sax Romer, having read a number of his stories in paperback. I was not looking to buy a Romer book when I came across this one on the Dark Regions website, but could not pass it up once I saw it. In additon to being hard cover the book is also stunningly beautiful. It's well worth the price and I'm sure once I read it it's value to me will be even greater. This is one to add to your collection.
