Today marks the publication of The Lamplighters in a Japanese translation from Takeshobo Publishing, Tokyo.
The alternate Japanese title is the rather subtle and elegant Decapitation Island, which I admit is kind of growing on me!
Here’s what the cover looks like:
My Japanese reading skills are non-existent, so I ran Takeshobo’s book description through an online translator.
This is my favourite part:
“A horror horror that is rolling in an isolated island separated from the outside world, a trembling nationwide!”
The Lamplighters (or Decapitation Island!) is available now from Amazon.co.jp and all good horror horror stockists.
Yoi ichinichi o,
Remember the days when we used to have actual, physical things that we could caress and hold and (yes!) sniff?
Those days can be yours again with the advent of THE SKINTAKER, coming atcha in paperback April 7th.
And i’m giving away a free copy at Goodreads. Go there now and luxuriate in lurid fantasies of book-sniffing, spine-breaking and page-turning.
You know you want it.
(and a reminder that i’m giving away 5 copies of the ebook too! enter at Rafflecopter, or via Fassbock)
The Skintaker is my fourth novel and is the prequel to my Bram Stoker Finalist first novel The Lamplighters. Here are some advance reviews, mmm hmmm, oh yeah, like a boss:
“A phenomenon in horror fiction that is truly chilling.”
(Wesley Thomas, Horror Novel Reviews)
“A grandly entertaining period horror adventure in the classical Kipling and Conrad tradition…THE SKINTAKER has never a dull moment. I thoroughly enjoyed it.”
(Eric Red, screenwriter of NEAR DARK, THE HITCHER and author of IT WAITS BELOW and WHITE KNUCKLE)
“Fans of extreme horror will find it all very satisfying, as author Frazer Lee paints his narrative so vividly.”
(Mallory Heart Reviews)
