What is
66 ingenious tales of lost knowledge and restless ghosts, secret libraries and forbidden texts, alternate worlds and ancient gods—written by 61 internationally-acclaimed writers, including Ramsey Campbell, Rhys Hughes, H. P. Lovecraft, Fred Chappell and Jeffrey Thomas!

BOUND FOR EVIL is a mammoth volume gathering together for the first time the very best stories of diabolical books: in which a disillusioned journalist searches for a missing girl in a midnight world of illegal coffee dens and black market books; an insomniac haunted by the death of his wife volunteers to take part in a bizarre research experiment; a wealthy bibliophile hires a thief to recover a book that has the power to change literary history; a bestselling writer confronts a menacing character from his past—the protagonist of his forgotten first novel; a shortsighted engineer stumbles across a book that’s not supposed to actually exist—a book that will forever alter the face of the earth. Just a few of the tales that await you in… BOUND FOR EVIL: Curious Tales of Books Gone Bad.

Delighted to be a part of this project! Delighted you are publishing my two best stories about 'strange books', especially my tribute to Stanislaw Lem.

Good luck and thank you!
