Walking With Ghosts, my first full-length short story collection recently published by the amazing folks at PS Publishing, has now been reviewed by Mario Guslandi over at Hellnotes. Here is a small preview of this very good review:
Brian James Freeman is a well respected author of short stories in the field of dark fiction. His specialty is what we used to call “quiet horror”(the master of which was Charles L. Grant), meaning a type of horror fiction where the reader is disturbed and unsettled in a gentle, but deep fashion, without making use of gore, unnecessary violence, and graphic details. The exact opposite of so-called “splatterpunk” but, in the end, much more effective in producing shivers and fright… [These stories] are very good. So good that it’s hard to pinpoint the more accomplished, being impossible to comment in detail upon each one… A highly recommended collection.
This is just a small taste, and Mario takes the time to comment on many of the stories. If you still haven’t picked up a copy, please check out the review!
Walking With Ghosts, my first full-length short story collection, is being published by the amazing folks at PS Publishing and my first copy arrived this past week. Here are a few photos I took very quickly the other day of this beautiful book they’ve produced:
I’m thrilled to report my first full-length short story collection, which has been more than 20 years in the making, will be published later this summer by the amazing folks at PS Publishing!
Walking With Ghosts will be available as both a signed & slipcased Limited Edition hardcover (limited to just 100 copies) and also as a beautiful trade hardcover. Vincent Chong created the incredible artwork for the cover, slipcase, and endpapers. It’s going to be a great looking book thanks to his efforts!
The approval copy of the Lettered Edition traycase for A Book of Horrors edited by Stephen Jones has arrived. This project represented the first-ever collaboration between Cemetery Dance Publications (US) and PS Publishing (UK), so we thought it would be cool to do something a little different for the traycase. This is the first time we’ve ever “wrapped” the hot foil stamping the whole way around the traycase and the effect is pretty amazing in person. These will be shipping before the end of the month, but here are a few photos to give you a little taste of what it looks like:
The Limited Edition of A Book of Horrors edited by Stephen Jones, which Cemetery Dance is co-publishing with PS Publishing in the UK, is shipping now. If you look at the cover too much, it gets kind of trippy:
