Repeater Books, Repeater
A selection of Repeater authors choose their favourite horror stories for this new anthology, with each writing a critical introduction for the story of their choice.
Edited by novelist and Repeater publisher Tariq Goddard and "horror philosopher" Eugene Thacker, The Repeater Book of the Occult is a new anthology of horror stories that explores the ever-shifting boundaries between the natural and supernatural, between the real and the unreal. As the editors note, "In the grey zone between what appears and what is, lies horror. But horror writing is also a certain disposition, a way of thinking based on a suspicion regarding the world as it is given to us, and a doubt regarding the accepted ways of explaining that world to us - and for us."
The Repeater Book of the Occult includes introductions by Repeater authors such as Leila Taylor, Carl Neville, Rhian E Jones, and Elvia Wilk, and features horror classics by Algernon Blackwood, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, and Edgar Allan Poe, as well as forgotten gems by authors such as W.W. Jacobs, Mark Twain, and Sheridan Le Fanu.
Taps into the increased interest in horror, as can be seen in the explosion of popular and acclaimed horror films and TV series in recent years.
Tariq Goddard is a publisher and novelist, who has won numerous awards for his writing, including the Independent Publishers Gold medal for Horror Writing. Eugene Thacker is a philosopher known for his bestselling Horror Philosophy trilogy.
Brings forgotten classic horror stories back into the mainstream, and offers new critical takes on the horror story as a format.
Readings in the UK and US. Alongside reviews and interviews in mainstream press, we'll be working with horror-writing blogs and podcasts for cult appeal of this contemporary engagement and reappraisal of the horror genre.
