Read full description of the books:Alan Bellman falls prey to a trap laid in the 17th century by wizard Roger Southwell. Though her husband becomes a helpless spirit-captive, the dead warlock's long-laid plans are thrown into confusion by Alan's wife, the other half of this 20th-century couple, who finds allies in unexpected places--Fabian and Katherine Stedman, two of the wizard's 17th-century contemporaries.
Read information about the authorChico Kidd has been writing professionally since 1979. Since 2000 she has been busy with the Da Silva Tales, an ongoing sequence of novels and stories featuring “one of the genre’s most interesting and genuinely original new characters” according to Stephen Jones in Horror in 2001. The 2002 editions of his influential anthologies, Mammoth Book of Best New Horror 13 and Dark Terrors 6, feature three of the stories between them. Others have appeared in Supernatural Tales, the Ash-Tree anthology Acquainted with the Night (2004), and in three self-published chapbooks. The first novel, Demon Weather, is due out from Booktrope.
Previously, her ghost stories have been published in the UK, the US, Canada, Australia and continental Europe. Most first saw the light of day in small press (Ghosts & Scholars, Dark Dreams, Peeping Tom, Enigmatic Tales, five self-published chapbooks, and others), many immediately snapped up for reprinting in mass-market anthologies. Almost all were collected together in hardback in Summoning Knells (Ash-Tree Press 2000). The Ghost Story Society’s verdict: “powerful… consummate craftsmanship”. Her first novel, The Printer’s Devil, came out from Baen Books (New York) in 1996. It came 12th in Locus magazine’s poll of Best First Novels of the year and gained some brilliant reviews and was reprinted last year by Booktrope with a cover by Chico. Chico also writes in collaboration with Australian author Rick Kennett about William Hope Hodgson’s occult detective Carnacki and their first hardback collection, No 472 Cheyne Walk, was published in 2002 by Ash-Tree.
