This is kind of a BIG DEAL!

I’ve been sitting on this one a while….
A couple of months ago, I decided to approach a renowned UK author who has been writing in the horror genre for close to 3 decades. I wanted to see if he would be interested in reprinting a short novel of his that had only come out in limited edition 612mfHOPIaL._UX250_from Earthling Publications several years back.
In one of those truly serendipitous moments, when I went to his Facebook page, I saw a note that he had posted only a few hours earlier mentioning that he had recently found an unpublished manuscript of his that would have been his first published novel if the deal hadn’t fallen through. His subsequent novel went on to become a huge hit and, in my opinion, it’s a classic of the genre. In the aforementioned post, he mused whether anyone thought a small press would be interested in publishing the trunk novel.
Obviously, I messaged him saying, “ME, ME, ME!!!”
I think I’ve strung this announcement on long enough. The author in question is Mark Morris. He burst onto the scene with his novel TOADY (known as THE HORROR CLUB here in the US) and has since written numerous other novels such as STITCH, THE DELUGE, MR. BAD FACE, and most recently itsustains_lgTHE OBSIDIAN HEART Trilogy.
We have signed deals to reprint his novel IT SUSTAINS this autumn as well as the project he rediscovered, THE WINTER TREE, which will come out early 2018 with a cover designed by Vincent Chong
Along with this unearthed manuscript, Mark will also contribute an introduction and an afterword, detailing, among other topics, how it feels 30 years later to look at the raw words he wrote when he was but a wee lad in his early 20s.
This is going to be fun.
