Rose of Eibon is in the final hours of an Indiegogo appeal for funds to get the business off the ground.
“Plenty of great offers for early adopters,” writes Steve, “starting at a basic donation of UK£5.”
To begin with, we have our anthology The Dispossessed and Other Weird Tales. Given his pivotal role in the genesis of this new venture, it’s fitting that Rose of Eibon’s first major release should be an anthology co-created by and dedicated to the memory of award-winning British writer Joel Lane.
The Dispossessed and Other Weird Tales has already attracted an impressive line-up of writers and artists. They include Thomas Ligotti, Adam Nevill, Chris Amies, Conrad Williams, Gary McMahon, Jasper Bark, Joe Pulver, John McCrea, Mark Owen, Mat Joiner, Mike Chinn, Nicholas Royle, Nina Allan, Peter Crowther, Ramsey Campbell, Rosanne Rabinowitz, Simon Avery, Simon Bestwick, Stephen Jones, WH Pugmire, Dave Sutton. Joel himself will be represented twice, including the story which gave this book its title (unseen in the UK or USA since its magazine appearance in 1989).
Profits from the sale of The Dispossessed and Other Weird Tales will be donated to the Terence Higgins Trust, a charity close to Lane’s heart.
