An Uneasy Death

img_2866Details: https://www.lulu.com/en/gb/shop/d-f-lewis/an-uneasy-death/paperback/product-1z95qgrd.html

My Horror Stories were published three times in BEST NEW HORROR and five times in YEAR’S BEST HORROR STORIES, and hundreds of other places by 1999.

In many ways, today (and it’s why the book is formatted and priced to deter even DFL completists!) I am out of tune with this over-condensed handful of my more extreme output, among hundreds of others that were less extreme during the golden age of the British and American small press of the late 20th century. However, I can appreciate the enthusiastic thrust and rough edges of those printed, stapled magazines, now sort of echoed by the style of this book. Furthermore, I hope these earlier horror works of mine still stand up after several years of no longer submitting them for publication, with my having concentrated on publishing many authors in ‘Nemonymous’, ‘Horror Anthology of Horror Anthologies’ etc. And gestalt real-time reviewing.
My old gritty stuff in this new book now looks to me more literary or avant garde than it did at the time! But I hope it still packs a visceral/sexual as well as surreal/poetic/religious punch for the thinking horror and weird fiction enthusiast.
Any profits will help my continuing purchase of books for gestalt real-time reviewing.
(This book will strictly only be signed by me, if required, when meeting up at conventions etc. and not by post. And no review copies are available. Its current Lulu price will never be changed.)
