COMPLETE JOHN THUNSTONE Update
Originally slated for release this summer, we are pushing the publication of THE COMPLETE JOHN THUNSTONE by Manly Wade Wellman back to December 2012.  Why?  Check this out:
We have uncovered more original artwork by George Evans for these tales by Wellman.
We have employed Chris Kalb to design a new design for the cover titles.
We have enlisted Grandmaster Ramsey Campbell to write an original introduction. (Oh, yeah!)
We have secured 100 Manly Wade Wellman autographs for the book’s 100-copy Slipcased Edition!
The slipcased edition will also feature two dustjackets AND an exclusive chapbook of Wellman’s “Judge Pursuivant” stories (published in Weird Tales as by “Gans T. Fields”) also illustrated by Evans and featuring the cover from the 1946 UK edition of these stories, ROMANCE IN BLACK.
We are also preparing a 26-copy leather-bound LETTERED edition which will also bear a Wellman autograph, along with some extra material that we will share in the near future.

Look for our next e-Newsletter where we will announce the contents of the Bonus Chapbook for preorders of THUNSTONE, IVY FROST and MICHAEL GRAY!

SIGNED COPIES!!! of THUNDER IN THE VOID by Henry Kuttner
Mike Resnick was the Guest of Honor at Pulpfest 2012 this summer in Columbus, OH and he signed several copies of THUNDER IN THE VOID by Henry Kuttner (Mike wrote the learned and erudite introduction).

While supplies last, we will ship these autographed copies of THUNDER IN THE VOID for the regular $40 price.  If you don’t want an autographed copy (really?), let us know with your order and you’ll receive one of the shrink-wrapped unsigned copies.

This book is a massive collection of 16 fun and exciting Space Opera stories originally printed in Astonishing Stories, Super Science Stories, and Planet Stories with original and unpublished story, “The Interplanetary Limited.”  How cool is that?
