The last element of the publication of Peripheral Visions: The Collected Ghost Stories (by Robert Hood) is now completed, with the release of Volume 2 of the trade paperback version. The 800+ page cloth bound volume and equivalent two-volume trade paperback versions are now available, as well as ebook formats of each. The hardcover (cloth bound) version has internal illustrations by Nick Stathopoulos, and is the premier title in IFWG Publishing Australia’s Dark Phases series of excellence in horror and dark fantasy. Curiously, the single volume ebook version has the same illustrations, but are treated differently – collectors note this if they want the complete experience. Nick was also the genius behind the cover art and designs for all the editions.
The first wave of the numbered limited edition has been shipped, but until all 200 copies are purchased, the offer will continue. Bonus material is offered with the limited edition, including Robert Hood’s dark YA title, Backstreets (paperback) as well as the chap-ebook Haunted Flesh, a collection of zombie stories by Robert Hood.
Without a doubt, the hardcover version of Peripheral Visions has been an outstanding success – proven by its sell out at Supanova Melbourne (the Melbourne Launch of the title) last April, as well as great sales at Continuum 11 a few weeks ago. Robert Hood will be turning up at Oz Comicon Melbourne on 27 and 28 June, where he will sign any purchases. We will have plenty of the cloth bound editions available.
Also, stay tuned – the Sydney Launch will occur in July and a formal announcement will be forthcoming very soon.
