The Art of Horror
Cover by Virgil Finlay

The Art of Horror
Slipcase cover by Hannes Bok

A celebration of frightfully fearful images, compiled by some of the biggest and most respected names working in the genre. From early engravings, via dust jackets, book illustrations, pulp magazines, movie posters, comic books and original paintings, to today's artists working entirely in the digital realm, there are over 500 images presented in The Art of Horror, from the shockingly lurid to the hauntingly beautiful. Vampires, werewolves, zombies, ghosts, devils, serial killers, alien invaders, and many more: every aspect of the genre is represented in all its gory glory. Multiple award-winning editor Stephen Jones and his stellar team of over 100 contributors-both writers and artists-have sourced visuals from archives and their own private collections, ensuring an unprecedented selection (including many rarities and a number of previously unpublished pieces) which, alongside the authoritative text, builds into a unique and fascinating history of horror. With an exclusive Foreword by Neil Gaiman, the award-winning author of The Sandman comic book series, and the novels American Gods, The Graveyard Book, and The Ocean at the End of the Lane.

The Best Short Stories of R. Chetwynd-Hayes: Ghosts And Ghouls
Edited by Stephen Jones

The Best Short Stories of R. Chetwynd-Hayes: Ghosts And Ghouls
Cover by Edward Miller

In a writing career that lasted for more than forty years, Ronald Chetwynd-Hayes published more than 200 short stories and was Britain's undisputed "Prince of Chill". Now multiple award-winning editor Stephen Jones has compiled the first spine-chilling volume of The Best Short Stories of R. Chetwynd-Hayes—thirteen classic tales of terror that combine horror and humour in equal measure. In this volume you will encounter a 19th century serial killer who refuses to remain dead; an old door that opens into a spectral room from the past; a television set which receives transmissions from Hell; a village of flesh-eaters hidden down a country lane; a demonic baby, and a family of ghostly children. Additionally, "the world's only practising psychic detective" Francis St. Clare and his assistant Frederica Masters investigate one of their most bizarre cases, 'The Gibbering Ghoul of Gomershal'. These are just some of The Best Short Stories of R. Chetwynd-Hayes. Be afraid. Very afraid . . .

Horrorology: The Lexicon of Fear
Cover by Clive Barker

In the Library of the Damned, hidden away amongst that vast depository of ancient wisdom, there exists a certain bookcase where the most decadent, the most blasphemous of tomes sit upon a dusty shelf. And amongst those titles that should never be named, there is one volume that is he most terrible, the most hideous of them all. That book is the very Lexicon of Fear itself. But, long ago, some of its pages were ripped from the binding and spirited away by a lowly student of the ancient science of Horrorology, determined that one day the secrets contained therein would be shared with the world. And now that day has come. These are the words that comprise the very language of horror itself, and the tales they tell are not for the fainthearted. But be warned: once you have read them, there is no turning back. Soon, you too will know the true meanings of fear . . .

‘The Death' Takes a Holiday . . . The Hotel Baktun is an exclusive vacation complex that is about to open on the coast of Acapulco, Mexico. Owned by a mysterious multi-millionaire businessman, it is shaped like an ancient Mayan pyramid and its halls are lined with rare and expensive artefacts.For Stacy Keenan, the hotel’s new Head of Security, things are already chaotic as the locals continue to put the finishing touches to the festivities while VIPs begin to arrive for the grand opening. When a Russian cruise ship turns along the shore and disgorges its cargo of flesh-eating zombies, the guests and staff soon fragment into various factions as they struggle to withstand the spread of HRV (Human Reanimation Virus). As the armies of the dead conquer all that stand before them, and the human survivors prepare for a final battle against an unstoppable enemy, a horror even more ancient and terrible is revealed when ‘The Death’ comes to Paradise . . .
