This is amazing! I never thought there'd be so many Vault people to congratulate at the same time! Well done, Charles, and well done all the contributors too!

Charles is to be congratulated on getting such an impressive line up of writers. I'm more than proud to be amongst them.

And that cover!

Well done, Des.

I just entered a piece about it on the Horror Writers Association members page and on my own website.

The last time the book-finding-and-buying page was seen, it was looking very amateur night. I've just spent the afternoon on it, adding and changing some stuff.

Allyson's site is presently not available (distant shriek of dismay). And I've been living dangerously by slightly abbreviating and re-writing the Tartarus Press copy for Mark's The White Hands. (It seemed like a good idea to mention his 3 entries to Best New Horror...)

The first reason for abbreviating it was because Tartarus obviously have so much more space on their page.

The second reason, I can't decide which of the lengthy review quotes is the most inviting...

As The Black Book has so many entries from Vault members, it seemed logical to use the cover twice - both sides of the page. At present, Charles, I've pointed the link straight at this page.

Nearly forgot the link!
