The Paperbacks from Hell Reprint Line from Valancourt Books is Here!

Great news everyone: Valancourt Books has just begun shipping out the first of five books in their reprint line of Paperbacks from Hell titles! It's The Nest, from 1980, and it even includes an introduction by me. I read and reviewed it back in 2014, and it's an honor to be a part of bringing such a shining example of pulp-horror back into print. Next up is Elizabeth Engstrom's When Darkness Loves Us, two novellas of heartbreaking horror and women's lives, with an intro by my partner in crime Grady Hendrix. We worked hard choosing titles, and we sometimes met disappointment when certain books were unavailable for reprinting. When possible the original cover art was used, and the books are mass market-sized too. Real quality stuff guys!

The next four titles will follow in the coming months: The Tribe by Bari Wood, The Spirit by Thomas Page, and The Reaping by Bernard Taylor (this last also has an intro by me). Be sure to visit the Valancourt Books page to subscribe to the series and have each book shipped to you as it is published and to learn all you need to know about the upcoming titles. Enjoy your time in HELL!

So stoked! And great timing--I nearly purchased an old copy of The Nest on eBay the other day, after reading your review. What a luxury this'll be instead, not having to worry about the book tearing apart while reading it. (On a related note, if you were ever to post about about book preservation--even just a "Share your tips / tricks in the comments!" Post--I bet a lot of useful tricks would trade hands in the comments). Anyway cheers, excited to read The Nest!

Really enjoy your blog and have had some great reads from it (The Auctioneer and Crawl Space are my favs from the last year). Got my copy of The Nest last weekend and can't wait to dig in after I finish The House Next Door.
