Black Coat Press - February 2011 Releases

From Black Coat Press Publisher Jean-Marc Lofficier:

"THE SUPREME PROGRESS is another anthology of eighteen 19th century French proto-SF stories (following NEWS FROM THE MOON and THE GERMANS ON VENUS) by Brian Stableford. I'll single out two as singularly ground-breaking: Charles Cros' An Interastral Drama (1872), about an unlawful love between an Earthman and a Venusian woman, and Eugène Mouton's The End of the World (1872), depicting an ecocatastrophe precipitated by global warming generated by human industrial activity. The cover is by Mike Hoffman.

UNDERSEA ODYSSEY is a suspenseful 1907 techno-thriller about a crew trapped in a sunken submarine at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea, by Captain Danrit, a French war hero (he died at Verdun) and the #1 author of militaristic, near-futuristic thrillers of his time. The cover is by Meinert Hansen.

Finally, HARRY DICKSON AND THE WEREWOLF OF RUTHERFORD GRANGE not only reprints G.L. Gick's (revised) story of Tales of the Shadowmen 1 & 2, but includes four more stories by Gick (two never published before) and an original Harry Dickson tale as well. The cover is by Matt Haley."
