Tartarus Press stories . . .

We thought it might be a good idea to make available PDF file samples of the work of some Tartarus authors you may not yet have read.

We’re starting with our growing list of contemporary writers. First up is that masterful magician of the macabre, Reggie Oliver, whose collection with us, Mrs Midnight, has proved such a popular and critical success. Mrs Midnight is now available in a paperback edition (priced £14.95), or as an ebook (£3.50). The title story of the collection is a tour de force of mounting horror with a music hall theme. It is available here, and we hope you will enjoy it.

Future PDFs will be announced as they become available and will include samples of the writing of Mark Samuels, Mark Valentine, Angela Slatter, Quentin S. Crisp, Tim Lees, Rhys Hughes, Michael Reynier and Jason P. Wyckoff. We also hope to provide samples of some of our classic authors, and our journal Wormwood.
