GLORY & SPLENDOUR: TALES OF THE WEIRD by ALEX MILES
Glory and Splendour is the stunning new debut collection by Alex Miles and heralds a new voice in weird fiction. Introduction by Michel Parry, who says: “this is a significant first book”.
“Glory and Splendour is a remarkable debut from a young writer. Clearly tapping from the same vein as Thomas Ligotti, Alex is already a writer with an emerging voice all his own. Miles has produced a collection of great verve, originality and integrity.” —Simon Bestwick
“Glory and Splendour is an apt title for this collection as it is both glorious and splendid. I urge you to purchase this book when it is released it was a pure joy to read, relish and savour.” —Ginger Nuts of Horror

HOW TO BAG A JABBERWOCK: A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO MONSTER HUNTING by KIT COX
There are untold Monsters in this world and we must defend ourselves against them. Britannia and her Empire are threatened.
For, in remote and hidden places, strange and deadly creatures still lurk. Scorpion-tailed Manticores prey upon our soldiers in the Persian hills, and in the snowy mountains of Tibet the legendary Yeti waits in ambush for the unwary Himalayan traveller. High in the heavens predatory Kraken patrol the skies and deep underground the mysterious Shide lie slumbering, ready to stalk our dreams. And yes, even within these emerald isles, Monsters linger – Vampires, Lycanthropes and Ghoti . . .
I, Major Jack Union, know these creatures inside out, indeed have spent a lifetime searching for them, hunting them down and wiping them from the face of the globe. Discover within these pages the truth about the secret world of Monsters – and how to defeat them.
Major Jack Union is the alter ego of Kit Cox, stand-up comedian, leading exponent of Steampunk and counsellor for British soldiers returning from war zones.

FRIGHTFULLY COSY AND MILD STORIES FOR NERVOUS TYPES by JOHNNY MAINS
Shadow Publishing is delighted to be able to publish Johnny Mains’ second collection of horror yarns. The book contains sixteen stories, some reprinted from various sources and some new to this collection.
“This collection was originally going to be The Difficult Second Collection but then I discovered that the ‘popular disc jockey’ Chris Moyles called his latest ‘best-seller’ The Difficult Second Book and that put paid to that. The title for this book comes in part from a reviewer who called my first collection ‘awfully cosy and mild’. The sentence tickled me so much so (though I didn’t agree with the review!) that I thought it’d pinch it and make it near unrecognisable for this new collection.”
Noon – 1:00 pm
