New, Revised edition of Unpleasant Tales available.

August 28, 2015

The new edition (second edition) of Unpleasant Tales is now done – well, at the printers anyhow. So if you order it, that is what you will get. The cover is actually now slightly different than what is on the website. Also, the paperback version is a somewhat larger format with fewer pages – the same size as the hardcover.

This edition has many, many revisions. Probably somewhere around 500-700 small changes.

I should emphasize though, buy it from the Eibonvale site. If you get it from Amazon they might end up sending you the old version.

It is amazing how much work went into revising this text. Anyhow, if you were looking for the perfect gift for your beloved one, this just might be it.

As Max Wedge says “UNPLEASANT TALES is almost too potent for even the bravest soul to absorb in one or two sittings, yet there is plenty at hand for the next time you wish to test the strength and stamina of your horror muscle…the prose itself is always impressive. There is a real artist at work here, and for lovers of the bizarre, Connell’s collection is a must-have–one that will reward even the most discerning reader of horror fiction.”

Or HorrorNews.net “…I have heard many novels described as “great examples of prose” before, but this is truly one of only a few modern books I would easily give such a title to.”

Or Innsmouth Free Press “Brendan Connell has taken the geometry of storytelling and thrown it off, ever-so-slightly, causing a sense of unease that defies simple explanation.”

Or Ross Jackson “vice for the connoisseur”

Or The Agony Column “The stories you’ll find in ‘Unpleasant Tales’ are, to the extent that they will make you feel uncomfortable in every way that you can made to be feel uncomfortable, horror stories. But in terms of content, you’ll find an alarmingly unfettered exploration of what we are by virtue of revealing who we are.”

Or Hellnotes “You can hardly ask more from a single book by a single author.”
