“Someone is killing doctors in the style of the murders in Vincent Price movies, leaving the Bristol police baffled. The only man who could possibly be responsible died years ago . . . or did he . . .?”
Today’s the day – John Llewellyn Probert’s Spectral Visions novella (and homage to the late actor Vincent Price), The Nine Deaths of Dr. Valentine, is available for y’all to pre-order. The book will be officially launched at this year’s FantasyCon, in Brighton, where the good man himself will be more than happy to sign and personalise copies. Those attending will also get a FREE poster of the front cover image, which you can also persuade him to sign as well. The limited hardback edition (100 only) includes that wonderful wraparound cover by JD Busch, coloured endpapers, a silk ribbon bookmarker and, as a bonus, an appendix featuring mini-reviews and reminiscences of the films referenced in the story. It’s going to be a very special item!
You will notice that there are two price points listed for the UK and Europe – as the book is being launched at FCon, those attending can pick their copies up at the event and thus save on postage and packing. Ordering now is the best way to ensure that you secure your very own copy of this magnificent and gruesomely affectionate paean to the horror films of the 60s and 70s!
