Yes, back in 1998, Peter Crowther—already having tried his hand at
writing, editing and even a spot of agenting—had a good idea: "Hey, why
don't I start a publishing company of my own?" he said to himself. So he
Then, in 2003, Pete had another good idea: "Hey," he said again, "let's
start a magazine for PS . . . and let's call it POSTSCRIPTS!" So he did.
And now, in 2007, when he'd found out he was to be Publisher Guest of Honour at World
Horror Convention 2007, Pete had yet another brainwave: "Hey," came the now-familiar
cry, "why don't we do a super-duper bumper kick-ass issue that's around 150,000
words long (instead of the usual 60,000 or so) and approach some of the best
writers in the business for material . . . and then launch it at the convention?"
So he did . . . or WILL be doing.
The result is POSTSCRIPTS #10, a veritable treasure-trove of unnervingly
fabulous fantastical fiction plus a special guest editorial
from "Mr. Horror" himself, STEPHEN JONES.
POSTSCRIPTS #10 will be available in three hardcover editions:
* Unsigned, priced at £12.00/US$25.00
* Signed by all writers (Stephen King yet to be confirmed), priced at £25.00/US$45.00
* Slipcased, signed by all writers (Stephen King included) and artists, priced at £75.00/US$135.00.
The unsigned edition will be launched at the PS Publishing Party on the Friday
evening at The Merril Collection, and will be available in the Dealers' Room on the
PS table throughout the convention. Sets of blank signing sheets will be available with
each copy purchased (around a dozen contributors are scheduled to attend the event). It
is unlikely that the pre-signed editions (which are almost sold out) will be available in time to ship.
