Reprint of Frank Walford's Twisted Clay

I'm pleased to announce that the esteemed Johnny Mains is reprinting Frank Walford's neglected horror classic, Twisted Clay, first published in 1933, under his Noose & Gibbet imprint, complete with lovely restoration cover.

The book is reprinted with the permission of Walford's family who have provided access to his personal archive.  New South Wales writer and historian, Jim Smith, provides a full biographical introduction, I provide an account of the book's reception and later banning in Australia, and Johnny provides some critical insights into the novel.  Publication date is the second week of January 2014, and you had better get in quick because it will be issued in a strictly limited edition!
