The BHF Book Of Horror Stories
Update: September 8, 2007
Book 3 - sorry abou the delay!
This is a short message to everyone who submitted to book 3. They have all been received safe and sound and I have started working my way through them - I'm hoping to e-mail all of you by the end of November. Sorry about the delay!
BHF Book of Horror Stories - book 2 now available!
Yes - after months of waiting, the Second BHF Book Of Horror Stories is now available. Twice the size of book one, with more stories, more illustrations, more talent... ooh, more everything. It's what your life is missing - buy loads.
Book 3 submissions - the door is now officially shut (sorry)
Yes, sadly I'm having to close the door on submissions for forthcoming anthologies. Thanks to everyone who's sent stuff in for book 3, I'm about to (as of March 24th) start reading through 'em and will be in touch with you all shortly. Once book 3 is out we'll think about doing further books - watch this space.
Cover of anthology 2
Here you go - a preview of what the cover looks like...
And here's the back:
The more eagle-eyed amongst you may recognise some of the text - I haven't gone all verbose all of a sudden, it's taken from the backs of a couple of the original Pan books.
The new BHF Anthology features a stunning painting by Paul Mudie, which neatly illustrates the subject of one of the stories inside (and you thought we just threw these things together!)

The First BHF (as in British Horror Films) short story anthology went on sale in August 2006. A tribute to the famous Pan Books Of Horror from the 1960s and 70s, it contains 19 blood curdling tales of terror, written by fans of British horror films from across the world.
The stories range from modern tales of terror to gothic stories of the supernatural. For many of the authors it is the first time that their work has been in print (not that you’d know it from the quality!).
The authors are: John Reppion, Wendell McKay, Albie Swain, Christopher Wood, Wayne Mook, Billy Turner, Neil Christopher, James Brough, Matt Bowdler, Paul Newman, James Stanger, and Daniel McGachey. But that’s not all – the anthology has been specially illustrated by artists Lawrence Bailey and Paula Fay, and is wrapped in a stunning cover painted by Paul Mudie.
