New Collection

I’m delighted to announce that I’ll have a new short story collection out next year via the wonderful PS Publishing, The Best Stories of Angela Slatter. The cover is still in the works but we’ll reveal that as soon as we can (in the meantime, here’s a Kathleen Jennings drawing). The Introduction has been very kindly written by Mr Kim Newman and the cover quotes have come from some of my favourite authors:

“Slatter’s dark fantasies have a bright, burning core of understanding and insight.” ~ M.R. Carey, author of The Girl with All the Gifts and The Boy on the Bridge.

“Angela Slatter’s stories are horrific, mysterious, whimsical, and mischievous. Beautifully written, full of humanity and intelligence, her stories are both timely and timeless in their concerns. This is an essential collection from one of our best.” ~ Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Cabin at the End of the World.

“Angela Slatter ’s prose is both eloquent and elegant ? which is no mean feat. By turns beautiful and chilling in equal measure, her stories feature characters who live and breathe and leap off the page, while the plots themselves are wholly unique. This book is a gem and you should treasure it as such.” ~ Paul Kane, bestselling and award-winning author of Sherlock Holmes and the Servants of Hell, Monsters and Before.

“Angela has a rare talent for drawing the reader in to her world, with a lyrical, almost fairytale quality to her writing that also shows a sardonic wit to delight the reader. This collection showcases some of her best stories – you need to read it.” ~ Marie O’Regan, author of Bury Them Deep, editor of Phantoms and The Mammoth Book of Ghost Stories by Women.
