The Short Stories of Mervyn Peake

I am very happy to announce that following the very successful reception of Mervyn Peake: The Man & His Art in October 2006, Peter Owen Publishers will be bringing out an edition of my father's short stories this November. Introduced by Joanne Harris, the volume will include Boy in Darkness together with numerous previously unseen drawings by the author and five other short stories which were last published by Penguin Classics in 2000.

Any updates on when this will be available. Amazon UK say it's not released, and I've had no response from email enquiries to Peter Owen.

i love your dads books wow at the turn of every page of the Gormangaust books. such a shame that the bbc adaptation of the books did not do justice to the depth of his vision they made it look all to clean when the vision of the books was so dark. have you ever been approached by any other film makers to fully realize the dark realms of gormangaust.
yours sincerly
