New: THE MAN WHO LIVED BACKWARDS AND OTHER STORIES by Charles F. Hall

Here's a recent publication that was delayed a bit for production issues, but is out now and available.

In my anthology Tales Before Narnia (2008), I included a story which partly inspired The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis. That story was "The Man Who Lived Backwards" by Charles F. Hall.  Hall wrote two other short stories, making in total three stories, all in the style of H.G. Wells.  This booklet collects all three stories, the entire known output by the promising Charles F. Hall. Ordering details below.


Lady Stanhope's Manuscript and Other Stories by Dale Nelson has received a few nice reviews. Ordering details below.

"This sort of ghost story has much the same purpose – not necessarily to shock or terrify you, but to leave you with a feeling of unease, of invisible doors left ajar, of watching eyes behind your back in the darkness, of secrets best left buried. The genres of the stories in fact range beyond ghost tales. There’s plain science fiction here, and fantasy explorations of folklore themes. There’s a straight Christian miracle story. All expertly written, with keen insight into human nature and an understanding of Orthodox theology . . . Recommended."

                                                                                  Lars Walker 

"Here are short stories with the emphasis on the supernatural. . .  . Nelson aims for the cool, detached manner of M.R. James or Robert Aickman. . . . The 'Afterward' and 'Story Notes' describe the author's views of the supernatural, and his inspirations for the individual stories. Nelson's stories are very well written , and hold interest. Recommended."
