COLD HARBOUR by Francis Brett Young and SINISTER HOUSE by Leland Hall
ISBN 978-0-9793806-5-5: 270 pages
Retail Price: $15.00
H. P. Lovecraft praised these two novels in his treatise, Supernatural Horror in Literature. Reprinted together as the latest entry in our Lovecraft’s Library series, they are sure to be as interesting to your customers as they were toLovecraft himself! In the 1924 novel Cold Harbour by Francis Brett Young, an ancient house of strange malignancy is powerfully delineated. Leland Hall’s Sinister House (1919) is a supernatural tale of a strangely appealing quality, where against the background of a typical American suburb is projected a genuine atmosphere of horror. Introductions to each novel by horror expert S. T. Joshi trace the Lovecraft connection. Both novels feature their first edition cover art; Sinister House has four original illustrations, as well. Two novels in one volume, for one low price!
DEAD HOUSES AND OTHER WORKS by Edith Miniter
Edited by Sean Donnelly and Kenneth W. Faig, Jr.
ISBN 978-0-9793806-7-9: 370 pages
Retail price $15.00
For Edith Miniter (1867-1934), daughter of a poet and a mathematician, the undercurrent of isolation and ancient whispers always persists. Her friend H.P. Lovecraft compared Mrs. Miniter’s fiction with that of Jane Austen. Despite her genius, Edith Miniter’s literary heritage has – until now – lain neglected. Collected here is her finest work in short fiction, including “Dead Houses,” from which this collection draws its name. One of Mrs. Miniter's ancestresses in the early nineteenth century was a suspected witch; and her “Wonted Fires” is as dark a piece of gothic fiction as the aficionado might desire. Also included are her amateur writings, which mine a rich vein of information about Lovecraft. Rounding out the monumental volume are essays about her life and work by Lovecraft and other of her contemporaries, as well as modern scholarship on Mrs. Miniter – revealing her as a fascinating emblem of a vanished period in literature.
