A couple of nights ago, I was speaking with Jason from Night Shade Books. He gave me some news about their 2005 schedule and now that he’s posted it on their site, I can share the good news…

Just look at these titles:

Blood Follows by Steven Erikson
The Healthy Dead by Steven Erikson
War Stories by Joe Haldeman
The Gist Hunter and Other Stories by Matthew Hughes
Bold as Love by Gwyneth Jones
Conference with the Dead by Terry Lamsley
The Boar by Joe R. Lansdale
Dead in the West by Joe R. Lansdale
Bronze by Kit Reed
London Revenant by Conrad Williams
Snake Agent by Liz Williams
The Complete Hammer’s Slammers vol. 1 by David Drake
Letters from New York by H.P. Lovecraft
The Ghost Pirates and Other Revenants of the Sea by William Hope Hodgson
The Night Land and Other Perilous Romances by William Hope Hodgson
The Collected Jorkens vol. III by Lord Dunsany

Quite nice, isn’t it? I am very pleased that Night Shade has Steven Erikson’s novella series. Right now, the only way to get them is as a UK import. The PS Publishing edition of The Healthy Dead broke all preorder records for our store. The limited edition hardcover will be leatherbound and in a print run of only 150. That’s one of the things I like about Night Shade. They do truely limited editions in addition to the more affordable trade runs.

I think a lot of people will appreciate the reprints. For example, just try to find a reasonably priced copy of Lansdale’s The Boar. And then you have the new works by quality authors like Liz Williams. Great balance of old and new.

Check out the Night Shade Books titles at our site. I highly recommend them!
