Reggie Oliver

We have just published a new paperback edition of Mrs Midnight by Reggie Oliver. If you don't already have a copy, here are a few reviews that might tempt you:

"Readers who like their horrors subtle but unsettling will find this volume much to their liking." Publishers Weekly
"…by miles, the best living exponent of the spooky yarn," Barry Humphries.
"Mrs Midnight and other stories  is one of the best books I have read this year." - Henry Wessells, The Endless Bookshelf
"The latest collection (the fifth) by this extraordinary author assembles a bunch of excellent tales which confirm his uncommon talent as a teller of creepy, uncanny stories." - Mario Guslandi, The British Fantasy Society

To mark the event, have uploaded to youtube a short film of the author, in which he discusses influences on his work, the books he collects, and the raison d'etre for his writing:

Many thanks indeed to Reggie for letting us make the film.
