Shameless self-promotion department:

Books do furnish a room, and they make excellent Christmas gifts, for yourself
or someone you love. Just think! They're conveniently shaped for wrapping (no
awkward edges), don't need batteries, and there's no assembly required. Don't
know what book to get? Then look no further! NORTHWEST PASSAGES, the World
Fantasy Award-nominated collection by Barbara Roden, is available direct from
the author. The hardback edition is US$25.00, and the limited lettered edition -
which comes with a special chapbook containing the author's first published
ghost story, 'Dead Man's Pears' - is only US$65.00 (prices do not include

'Barbara Roden invokes the ghosts of M.R. James and Algernon Blackwood in a
collection that will put a touch of winter in your bones and have you glancing over
your shoulder when lights are low. Northwest Passages demonstrates Roden's
talent for distilling the ineffable, for transferring our universal fears of darkness
and isolation to the page.' Laird Barron

'First books are almost never this unsettling, this lively, this good. With Northwest
Passages Barbara Roden has placed herself among the ranks of the most telling,
most effective, most readable living writers of the strange and fantastic tale. "Endless
Night" alone is worth the price of the book, but every story here is related with
effortless-seeming skill and mastery. A wonderful and significant debut.' Peter Straub

Three of the stories in the collection - 'Northwest Passages', 'Endless Night', and 'Out
and Back' - have been selected for inclusion in 'Year's Best' anthologies. The collection
was nominated for Best Collection at the 2010 World Fantasy Awards.

But wait, there's more! As these copies are coming direct from the author, they
can be personally inscribed to anyone you want (although she might not believe
you have a cousin named eBay), at no extra charge.

Still undecided? If you act now, the author will include, completely
gratis/free, the DVD-ROM of FORGOTTEN GHOSTS, the fabulously rare booklet
originally published for the Ghost Story Convention in Chester, England in 1996.
The booklet contained five rare stories included by legendary editor Hugh Lamb
in some of his anthologies, along with the original story introductions, new
introductions by the editor, and a lengthy appreciation of Lamb and his work by
Mike Ashley. The DVD-ROM includes all this material, as well as a photo gallery
showcasing the cover artwork from Lamb's anthologies. It was produced for the
World Horror Convention in Brighton in March 2010, and comes packaged in an
attractive jacket reproducing the artwork from the original booklet. And if you
order the limited lettered edition of NORTHWEST PASSAGES, the jacket of the
DVD-ROM will be signed by Hugh Lamb.

Our operators are standing by; just e-mail for more information
or to order a copy.

Hey Barbara! While you're here - phew! - has All Hallows gone?
I emailed you a few months ago but think your email address must have changed. Glad you dropped in!
