Where the Bodies Are Buried
Kim Newman's Where the Bodies Are Buried was co-published in 2000 by the Alchemy Press and Airgedlamh Publications.
The book collects the four "Bodies" stories:
"Where the Bodies Are Buried"
"Where the Bodies Are Buried II: Sequel Hook"
"Where the Bodies Are Buried 3: Black and White and Red All Over"
"Where the Bodies Are Buried 2020"
The book is topped and tailed with an introduction by Peter Atkins and a Dramatis Personae, which nicely links this collection to many of Kim's other works. Sylvia Starshine painted the cover and Randy Broecker the interior artwork.
Where the Bodies Are Buried was published as a signed (by Kim Newman, Peter Atkins, Sylvia Starshine and Randy Broecker) hard cover with dust jacket, limited edition of 500 copies. The cover price was £17.50. New copies are still available from The Alchemy Press for £15.00 inc postage in the UK. Or via Oldhaven Books on Abe and Amazon.co.uk.
Where the Bodies Are Buried won the BFS Award for the Best Small Press!
Joel Lane said: "Meet Rob Hackwill, folk demon. A blackmailer killed by his victims, returning to expose what they are really made of. Or so the script goes. But then Hackwill slithers out of film into reality. Where the Bodies Are Buried is a heady brew of pulp horror, political satire and twisted technology. These four stories deconstruct the myths of the late twentieth centry -- with a hatchet. Prepare to laugh. Prepare to shudder. Prepare to find out Where the Bodies Are Buried."
