Their Cramped Dark World and Other Tales now available with its Luke Spooner cover

Artwork by Luke Spooner
I can now confirm that the new (or, more correctly, reinstated Hazardous Press cover) by Luke Spooner is now available as a trade paperback and an ebook. After leaving Hazardous Press and republishing Their Cramped Dark World under the Parallel Universe imprint, a new cover (based on a Goya painting) was substituted for the one by Luke Spooner. I was never wholly happy with this, if only because, on reconsideration, the Goya painting was a bit too overly familiar. Now, though, the original cover, specially designed for this collection by Luke Spooner, is back again.
The stories in Their Cramped Dark World range from 1972 to 2012 and have all been published before by publishers such as Sphere Books, Corgi Books, Peeping Tom and Mortbury Press.
