They obey your commands (even when you hide far away)
Another ad from the 1970s.
I got an email from Sarah at Bloomsbury to say that Raben & Sjogren, the Swedish publisher of Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror, want to publish Tales of Terror from the Black Ship which is great news. I am reading Let The Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist so I am having something of a horror swap with Sweden.
Let The Right One In is particularly interesting to me at the moment because it has child protagonists in an urban setting and I am working on something similar. In fact I had a moment of panic when I began reading it because it opened in almost exactly the same way. But this is most definitely an adult book. It is not just creepy, it is very, very dark.
