The Female of the Species & Other Terror Tales

Shadow Publishing's David Sutton has announced The Female of the Species & Other Terror Tales by Richard Davis, due 2012. (£7.99; ISBN: 978-0-9539032-4-5; Cover Artwork by Caroline O'Neal)

Richard (1935-2005) never saw a collection of his stories published in his lifetime and this book includes all of the author's short stories, culled from as far back as 1963 and The Fourth Pan Book of Horror Stories, up to the 1980s. The collection contains an introduction about his life, the fiction and anthologies, including his work as story editor for the BBC's Late Night Horror series. The book will also feature two rare articles and an interview with the author, from the late 1960s.
