Hi Chris
 Sarob Press is pleased to announce details of our Spring (April) 2011 title as follows.
Mark Nicholls: Dark Shadows Fall
Dr Nicholls is the President and Librarian at St John's College, Cambridge – surely a terrific place to soak in the atmosphere of centuries and quietly dream up tales of delicious and rather pleasing terror. Previously published in Ghosts & Scholars, All Hallows, Supernatural Tales, Enigmatic Tales and Black Rose, this is Mark's first collection of ghost stories. Here are 12 traditional tales, some Jamesian, some antiquarian, all ghostly and all dark and icily chilling.  Afterword by Mark Nicholls. Illustrations by Paul Lowe.   Limited Edition Hardcover. Printed Boards. Edition limited to 150 numbered copies.  Limitation will be reviewed if pre-publication interest suggests a larger print run is appropriate.
UK: UK £20 
Europe: 25 euros
USA & Rest of World: US $35

I hope to hear from you shortly.
Cheers, Robert.
---I will be getting this in. The previous Sarob title I've had here for a while, but I've been neglectful about getting it listed. In fact, only just yesterday I managed this:
Ward, C.E. SEVEN GHOSTS AND ONE OTHER, Sarob '10, Limited "Numbered" Edition, one of 200 copies, (author's long-awaited second ghost story collection; eight Jamesian tales include two new long and previously unpublished supernatural stories and the authorised completion of M.R. James' unfinished “The Game of Bear”), as new no dj as issued (pictorial boards) 40.00
---The slight bump up in price is owing to the fact that it is sold out at the publisher, and to allow for the 10% discount I give.
