We are OverAllTheMoons to announce details of an imminent anthology by David Tibet, released at the same time, and with the same title, as the new album by Current 93. An anthology of strange fiction and hallucinatory tales, The Moons At Your Door collects chilling stories by many innovators of the weird whilst drawing attention to little-known and shamefully underrepresented or forgotten scribes of the macabre.
The Moons At Your Door collects over 30 tales, both familiar and unknown from: Robert Aickman, Algernon Blackwood, DK Broster, AM Burrage, RW Chambers, Aleister Crowley, Sheridan Le Fanu, Elizabeth Gaskell, WW Jacobs, MR James, Vernon Lee, LA Lewis, Thomas Ligotti, Arthur Machen, Guy de Maupassant, Perrault, Thomas De Quincey, Saki, Count Stenbock, Montague Summers, HR Wakefield and Edith Wharton. The volume also includes extracts and translations by the author from Babylonian, Coptic and Biblical texts alongside poems and fairy tales.
The book’s cover features artwork by David and design by Ania Goszczyńska; the frontispiece also reproduces a painting by David.
The book is published in two editions: a paperback edition of 2,000 copies, available from all Good and Bad bookshops everywhere, and a hardback edition of 500 copies, signed by David, which are available mail-order only from DavidTibet.com and Strange Attractor Press.
This title is now SOLD OUT at DavidTibet.com. But it IS still available from the publishers here
The hard-back edition is bound in cloth, with sewn signatures. Approximately 450 pages long, measuring 210mm x 148mm, it has printed endpapers by David, illustrating one of the stories that he has chosen in the book. It also comes with a chapbook of an extra story by Algernon Blackwood, with an illustration by David, and a surprise. These latter two items are only available with the hardback edition.
Please note: the book is not published until mid-November, at the same time as the new album by C93. The book costs £30 plus P&P. The paperback edition is not available from us or from Strange Attractor Press.
A paperback edition will be simultaneously available from all good booksellers.
About the editor
As founder of the Ultimate Hallucinatory SuperGroup Current 93, David Tibet’s work as an artist and songwriter is widely known. His song cycles present a rich vein of ethereal imagery, arcane reference and the supernatural, creating their own sound-worlds of heart-felt and mysterious poignancy. The Moons At Your Door presents both a skeleton key to these domains and a gateway to the world of supernatural fiction.
David Tibet says about the book:
I fell in Love with The Moons whom I had heard and seen at my door when I was a young boy in Malaysia. I have brought together, in this work, many of the short stories and texts that have made me what I am and what I will be, and it gives an insight into my Spheres for those who wish to read what formed me. I have never tired of these works, which still move me profoundly, and I will never will.
The Moons At Your Door the new album from The Final Clock Of Haunted Current 93.
Containing 2 long tracks, “The Moons At Your Door” and “There Is A Graveyard That Dwells In Man”, this album has been recorded in Music As Ghost and recorded as Music For Ghosts. With cover artwork by David, the album will be released as a single vinyl LP, a single CD in digipak, and in an edition of 93 signed and numbered copies with 2 x 12” records with the obverse of each record screen-printed with artwork by David; additional Ghosts will also accompany the limited edition.
