DARKNESS, MIST AND SHADOW
THE COLLECTED MACABRE TALES OF BASIL COPPER
Volume Two

Compiled and Edited by Stephen Jones

"One of the last of the great traditionalists of English fiction."
Colin Wilson

"Britain's leading purveyor of the macabre."
Peter Haining

Collected together for the first time in two handsomely produced volumes from PS Publishing are all the supernatural and macabre short stories and novellas of legendary British writer Basil Copper.

Drawn from numerous collections, anthologies and magazines as varied as the award-winning Dark Terrors series, rare and collectible compilations edited by Stephen Jones and Peter Haining, and the author's own highly-prized books from Fedogan & Bremer, these two extensive collections contain more than four decades' worth of weird fiction from one of the genre's most renowned practitioners.

In this second volume you will find such classics of the macabre as 'The Candle in the Skull' (read over Hallowe'en on BBC Radio 4), 'Better Dead' the acclaimed Lovecraftian novella 'Beyond the Reef', 'Bright Blades Gleaming', 'Ill Met by Daylight', and the first printing of the author's preferred version of his final published short story, 'Voices in the Water'.

With an critical Introduction by broadcaster Kim Newman, Volume Two of Darkness, Mist and Shadow: The Collected Macabre Tales of Basil Copper also contains original illustrations by Randy Broecker, Dave Carson, Les Edwards, Bob Eggleton and Allen Koszowski, along with a stunning cover painting by Stephen E. Fabian.
