Our MORBID FASCINATION with the Undead Continues

A Morbid Fascination was the latest chapbook in the series, released in October 2010:

"A Morbid Fascination" by Series Editor Tom English
(1824) "The Adventure of the German Student" by Washington Irving (the FIRST vampire tale by an American writer.);
(1827-28) "The Skeleton Count" by Elizabeth Grey (FIRST published vampire tale written by a woman!);
(1830) "Blood Brothers" by Sir Walter Scott (a cool Norse legend that ties into vampirism);
(1833) "The Vampire Bride" by Henry Liddell (This long poem was the basis for Tim Burton's animated filmThe Corpse Bride.)

Cover art by Allen Koszowski.

A Modern Victorian Novella

Here's the cover of Blood Coven, written by husband and wife horror writers Christopher Fulbright and Angeline Hawkes, and published in 2008. I did two editions: a 100-copy edition signed by both writers; and a signed 26-copy lettered edition with extra material by the writers. I love this cover by Allen Koszowski.

I'm at work on another volume in the series, A Morbid Fascination, which will feature material from the early 1800s and an AK cover. I hope to have it done by mid-summer. That's the plan, at any rate.
