Telos publishing is pleased to announce that a new collection of vampire tales, and a detective novel, have been signed from author Tanith Lee. The collection brings together much of Tanith’s published vampire short fiction, and includes several original stories as well. Talking about the deal, Tanith said: ‘Aside from the fine reputation of Telos, I’m delighted to work with Sam Stone, who I’ve known for some years – a fascinating writer and fun companion. It’s also great to get a huge Lee vampire collection between covers – not to mention seeing my 1990’s (and only so far) detective novel, Death of the Day coming back into print. I love the detective genre, especially such stars as Ruth Rendell and Ian Rankin. I look forward to a new outlet for Death of the Day.’
David J Howe, Editorial Director of Telos, said: ‘I have been hugely impressed with Tanith’s work over the years. She is an author of rare power and vision, and to have some of her great short stories collected together in a special edition by Telos is something we are very proud of. In 2009 she was awarded the honour of Grand Master by the Horror Writers Association, and never has such an accolade been more deserved.’
The deal was agreed between Tanith and Stephen James Walker from Telos Publishing, and the collection and detective novel are currently planned to be published in April 2015.
