Possible Revised Star One Compendium?

As many of you may already know, the Star One Compendium has been out of print for over a year now. We’ve been considering publishing an updated and revised version with new material.

Was wondering if there’s enough interest in a revised version?

Also if this were to go ahead would any of you be interested in contributing to a new edition?

Out Now! Grave Warnings II: Hob House

Pencil Tip is pleased to announce the official release of our latest book, Grave Warnings II: Hob House is now available to purchase. Following on from our 2016 release Grave Warnings, this second volume of ghostly tales of the supernatural and suspense features a further seven exciting short-stories from six of the best new writers in the horror genre.

Alexander Penrose had a simple idea. He just wanted a home for himself and his family, and when he found a beautiful plot of land going cheap in the English countryside, he could see no earthly reason not to buy it and build the house of his dreams. But sometimes, just sometimes, there is a reason why land is cheap.

These seven tales follow the history and fortunes of the house he built – Hob House – as its terror-filled halls weave their way from one century to the next. From the reign of George III to the modern day, meet the poor souls who were fated to become its inhabitants in life… and sometimes in death.

Six of the best new writers in horror – Craig Charlesworth, Simon Blake, Greg Maughan, Peter Gouldson, Robert Mammone and Richard Peevers – invite you to open the doors and step inside. But do so at your own risk, because not everyone who goes in comes out again. And those who do are never quite the same again.

England. 1776.

Alexander Penrose had a simple idea. He just wanted a home for himself and his family, and when he found a beautiful plot of land going cheap in the English countryside, he could see no earthly reason not to buy it and build the house of his dreams. But sometimes, just sometimes, there is a reason why land is cheap.

These seven tales follow the history and fortunes of the house he built – Hob House – as its terror-filled halls weave their way from one century to the next. From the reign of George III to the modern day, meet the poor souls who were fated to become its inhabitants in life… and sometimes in death.

Six of the best new writers in horror – Craig Charlesworth, Simon Blake, Greg Maughan, Peter Gouldson,, Robert Mammone and Richard Peevers – invite you to open the doors and step inside. But do so at your own risk, because not everyone who goes in comes out again. And those who do are never quite the same again.
