Horror Titles - New, Coming Soon, In the Works - eARCs

New Releases

If you follow us anywhere online, you know how excited we've been recently about two of our biggest releases from the late gay horror authors, Michael McDowell and Michael Talbot.

The Elementals (1981) A haunted house story unlike any other, Michael McDowell’s The Elementals was one of the finest novels to come out of the horror publishing explosion of the 1970s and ’80s. Though best known for his screenplays for Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice and The Nightmare Before Christmas, McDowell is now being rediscovered as one of the best modern horror writers and a master of Southern Gothic literature. This edition of McDowell’s masterpiece of terror features a new introduction by award-winning horror author Michael Rowe. McDowell’s first novel, the grisly and darkly comic The Amulet (1979), is also available from Valancourt Books.

The Delicate Dependency (1982) Michael Talbot’s historical vampire novel is often cited as one of the best of its kind ever written. This highly anticipated new edition, the first since the book’s original publication, includes a new foreword by Jillian Venters.

Coming Very Soon

Basil Copper's 1983 Gothic horror, The House of the Wolf. Here's one of the many illustrations in the book by legendary illustrator Stephen Fabian.

In the Works

We're in the process of adding two more novels by the masterful Stephen Gregory to our forthcoming list: The Woodwitch (1988) and The Blood of Angels (1994). If you have not read the brilliant work that is The Cormorant, do yourself a favor and check it out now! Also be sure to check out Stephen Gregory's most recent works: The Waking that Kills and the soon-to-be-released Wakening the Crow, both from Solaris.

In addition to these, we have some extremely exciting news coming up that we can't announce quite yet. Be sure to check back with us on Facebook and our other social media outlets to find out what titles we're working on bringing back into print.
