Swedish tales of terror

I think I'm right in saying that the Swedish edition of Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror is published today by Raben and Sjogren, which is great. I haven't seen a copy yet, but I hope I will soon.

I have been going through the proofs for Tales of Terror from the Tunnel's Mouth yet again. I am still finding errors, so it is worth doing. But Isabel Ford got in touch from Bloomsbury today asking if I'd finished with them, so I need to get them sorted once and for all. I'll quickly get to the end, then write up all the errors and changes and get them back to her.

Then I will be able to devote all my time to new stuff. I am working on a synopsis for Bloomsbury and once I have that done I will write a couple of chapters. I am also working on some short stories I have had rattling round in my head for some time. They are very different from the Tales of Terror stories. I will tell you more about them another time.

Of course, if I am the only person who thinks there is any value in these stories, you may never hear about them again.


  1. Do you know that in Italy the same image cover of your book has been used by Newton Compton for another book ("Gli incubi di Hazel"- Hazel's phantasmagoria - Leander Deeny)? Why do you think it has been possible? It create some confusion, I think.

  2. No - I had no idea. Thanks for telling me. I have no idea why this has happened and I will be looking into it as soon as possible. I agree with you - it is confusing and should clearly never have happened.
