The Very Best of Tony Richards - horror, mystery. sf, fantasy

This post was last modified: 12 Jun 2019 11:46 AM by Tony Richards.
Tony Richards began his career as a science fiction writer, before a series of his stories in the Pan and Fontana Books of Horror and The Fontana Book of Great Ghost Stories caught the public’s attention. He has since been a contributor to Weird Tales, Cemetery Dance magazine, The 3rd Alternative, Black Static, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, and numerous anthologies and smaller magazines. His first supernatural novel, The Harvest Bride, was shortlisted for the HWA Bram Stoker Award, and he has since published some twenty others.

He has continued to work in other genres as well, contributing to Isaac Asimov’s SF Magazine and – very regularly – to Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine. His first crime novel, The Desert Keeps Its Dead, appeared in 2014, and a second – The Tribe – is now available from CD Publications He has penned enough short fiction to fill seven collections, and his third – Going Back – made the shortlist for the British Fantasy Awards. Stories of his have seen inclusion in The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror, Stephen Jones’ Great Ghost Stories, and The Best of Cemetery Dance.

He keeps on writing to this day in a wide variety of styles, and his Raine’s Landing supernatural thrillers have attracted a cult following. This book contains no less than 42 handpicked stories – horror, ghost, dark fantasy, crime, sf, fusion fiction, humor, and even paranormal romance – set in locations all over the world and representing the finest of his work.
 
This collection is available exclusively on Amazon Kindle.

I didn't simply choose these stories by myself, but used the reaction of editors and readers -- and even illustrating artists in a couple of cases -- to make my final selection.
