The Lurkers in the Abyss - Midnight House

There has been a long delay in this collection being published. Unfortunately, John Pelan, who is the man behind Midnight House, has had a tough time for the past couple of years. However, I received an email from him today which confirms that publication of my collection will be imminent in the next few months or so.

I know from the quality of those Midnight House books I already have in my collection, that the wait will be more than worth it when Lurkers in the Abyss finally appears. The quality of these books is second to none.

Curiously, one of the stories from that collection, After Nightfall, will be published in The Zombie Archives, edited by Otto Penzler for Random House, while Out of Corruption continually gets republished in Steve Jones's Mammoth Book of Zombies, which has appeared under several variations of that title in the UK, the US, Italy and now Russia! Even the title story will appear in Cemetery Dance's long-awaited Century's Best Horror Fiction sometime soon.


  1. Hi David

    I'm delighted to hear this is still on the cards. You know I'm dying to read this collection of yours - and I want an inscribed copy if it comes out!

  2. Over the moon by this - will be getting a copy!

  3. I'm trying to reach John Pelan -- do you have an active e-mail address for him?
