By Steve Rasnic Tem
Reminiscent of Ray Bradbury with the atmosphere of Edward Gorey, Deadfall Hotel guides you through a season spent in the ultimate haunted hotel. Told through the story of a widower who takes the job of manager at a remote hotel where the guests are not quite like you and me, Deadfall Hotel chronicles what happens when nightmares seek a place of sanctuary. This literary exploration of the roots of horror in the collective unconscious may be the Bram Stoker, British Fantasy, and World Fantasy award-winning author’s finest creation to date.
The book is illustrated with 10 new artworks created by Danish artist John Kenn Mortensen. The book has illustrated endpapers, a full printed cloth binding, ribbon marker, head and tail bands, and a reinforced binding. In addition to the novel, there is an afterword by Tem, the original story
Bloodwolf, published in Shadows, and a new story,
Skullbees, which will not be reprinted anywhere. The story was written specifically for one of the Mortensen illustrations.
With a full printed cloth cover, this limited edition is No. 111 of 300.
Published in August 2011, each numbered copy is signed by Steve Rasnic Tem and John Kenn Mortensen.
