Northern Illinois Publisher Releases Three Books
Tales of Wonder and Dread Publishing have just released three new books as the official launch of the publisher. The imprint is a brand new endeavor based in Poplar Grove, Illinois..
Life Blood: A Collection of Vampire Tales is edited by Gary Hill. This new collection features modern vampire related contributions from Heath D. Alberts, Erynn Crittenden, Gary Hill, Dustin Urness and Dessie R. Voigt along with historical tales that seek to establish the new stories in the rich tradition of vampiric fiction. It even includes some poetry.
Spooky Rockford: Creepy Tales in the Greater Forest City Area, as the title suggests, focuses on tales meant to be at least a little scary and all set in the greater Rockford, Illinois area (stretching as far afield as the Southern Chicago area). It includes non-fiction, fictionalized non-fiction and fiction stories. Including contributions from Heath D. Alberts, Ernie Fuhr, Diane Hill, Gary Hill and Kathi Kresol, This collection also includes lots of photos.
Strange Realities: Collected Short Stories and More by Gary Hill - Expanded and Revised Edition is, as you might gather, a reissue. This new edition of "Strange Realities" includes five newer fiction tales not included in the original collection of short stories. In addition, there are several of Gary Hill's blog posts and two non-fiction pieces. The new edition is about twice the size of the original version which was released in 2011.
All of the books will be available in paperback at lulu.com/strangesound and Amazon.com and other book retailers. A hardcover edition of each will be available exclusively at lulu.com/strangesound. Gary Hill will have copies of them at a book signing at Katie's Cup on the 22nd of September at noon. Additionally, several of the contributors to both "Spooky Rockford" and "Life Blood" will be in attendance to sign those books.
