The Keys to D'Espérance

by Chaz Brenchley
Release date: 1998
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, horror

A chapbook.

The Keys to D'Espérance was published as a limited edition chapbook in October 1998 by The Subterranean Press, with an introduction by Peter Crowther. The edition was limited to 250 signed/numbered copies.

The author classes The Keys to D'Espérance as something of an oddity. It's a 9000 word novella which he intended to be the first in a series of stories that would look at the history of Britain this century, from a fairly askance angle and via the medium of a very strange house indeed – D'Espérance.

The author believes that The Keys to D'Espérance is one of the best pieces he has written.

The Keys to D'Espérance was reprinted in Mammoth Book of the Best New Horror, edited by Stephen Jones, (Robinson, 1999).
