We have completed the sale of my Dads literary estate and are looking forward to seeing his works republished by Wildside Press.

I think there will be a lot of younger readers that will enjoy seeing some of his hard to find works in circulation once more.

My First Book

MY FIRST BOOK: GIANTS OF THE GENRE

My advice for beginning writers looking at getting their first novel published: hang tough, it’s one hell of a ride.

An author’s first book is like a first kiss – something you’ll never forgot as long as you live. After having nearly twenty books published, my first book still has a special place in my heart. It was Giants of the Genre published in 2003 by Wildside Press.

The story doesn’t really start here; it starts about a decade…

Forum changes

Posted by John Betancourt on April 5, 2012 at 10:53pm 0 Comments

Wildside Press has hosted a forum for mystery movie discussions for 15+ years. I had hoped to move most of the discussions here, but the integration is not going as smoothly as I had hoped. For the time being, I have added a link to both the new forums and the old forums under the "Forums" tab for convenience.

More Golden Amazon?

Started by Alison Monday in Books and Ebooks. Last reply by Timothymayer Dec 16. 3 Replies

I'm thoroughly enjoying the Golden Amazon series by John Russell Fearn, but I notice only 14 of the books have been published by Wildside, and the last one was back in December. Are you planning to…Continue

Ever hear of E.H. Visiak?

Started by Charles R.L. Power in Books and Ebooks. Last reply by Timothymayer Dec 16. 2 Replies

I'm rereading Colin Wilson's The Mind Parasites and see that in the introduction he calls E.H. Visiak's Medusa "one of the finest supernatural novels ever written." Amazon has some $100+ used copies…Continue

Brian McNaughton - estate/agent ?

BTW, I'm a big Wildside fan (from Gonji, We Are All Legends, more). Wildside press has reprinted the Throne of Bones, another favorite of mine... and McNaughton's great story of "Ringard and Dendra"…Continue

Is this suggestion psycho?

Another writer who seems ill-served by the electronic press is Robert Bloch. I'm not sure whether any authorized ebook exists, though there are a few short stories repeated by various publishers, a…Continue

"Just started reading this series myself and can't understand why I have missed it. Just goes to show there are still treasures out there. I'm already seeing some possible influences on the Octobriana comics."

"Don't know if I would rate it so highly,but it is a very bizarre book. Karl Edward Wagner put it on his essentials list."

BTW, I'm a big Wildside fan (from Gonji, We Are All Legends, more). Wildside press has reprinted the Throne of Bones, another favorite of mine... and McNaughton's great story of "Ringard and Dendra" in a later collection (2012's 20 Great Tales of Fantasy).  I would love to see a collection of weird tales regarding artists and horror.....perhaps old ones like Gilman's Yellow Wallpaper, HPL's PIckman's Model, Clark Ashton Smith's Genius Loci...etc....maybe some contemporary writers could…See More

"We actually have a couple of Bloch pieces in inventory (yes, public domain -- but no one else has done them yet, as far as I can tell). Unlikely to have any authorized Bloch stuff in the Megapacks, sorry. -- John"

Megapack suggestion

I'd love to see the Planet Stories fiction of Gardner Fox. Gardner was an extremely popular comic book writer, but he was also a prolific genre author of historical adventures and space operas. His books "Hunter Out of Time" and "Arsenal of Miracles" in particular deserve Ebooks editions, and he could easily support a Megapack of grand space opera fiction. (Gardner created the Flash, Hawkman, and the Justice League, and is a comic book legend.)

Another writer who seems ill-served by the electronic press is Robert Bloch. I'm not sure whether any authorized ebook exists, though there are a few short stories repeated by various publishers, a sure sign of public domain material. Although I've enjoyed Bloch mostly in short form (a megapack would be great), I throughly enjoyed his Lovecraftian novel Strange Eons (Whispers Press, 1978).See More

John Betancourt replied to Charles R.L. Power's discussion Ever hear of E.H. Visiak?
"I actually hadn't heard of Visiak. I looked him up and discovered he was British, died in 1972, and published Medusa in 1929...which means it will enter the public domain in 2043. Probably we won't be able to reprint it before then,…"

John Betancourt replied to Eric Jennings's discussion Megapack suggestions
"I have actually been thinking about Bramah, Crofts, and Rohmer -- so those are all likely to happen at some point. Carr is an interesting idea. And there is probably enough public domain material to do a good Sexton Blake volume... Thanks! -- John"

John Betancourt replied to Toni Busuttil-Reynaud's discussion Another Megapack suggestion
