A view of the marbled endpapers from the Special Edition of Sylvan Dread: Tales of Pastoral Darkness. This is but one of the details that highlight the stunning craftsmanship of Three Hands Press.
Copies of the Special Edition, hardcover edition, and trade paperback edition may be ordered here.
Those who have read and enjoyed Sylvan Dread are encouraged to spread the word, perhaps by posting a review on your blog or on readers' sites such as Goodreads. Independent publishers always benefit from word-of-mouth promotion, which in turn assures the production of unusual and uncanny books.

Sylvan Dread has received a magnificent review courtesy of This Is Horror, which is an all around terrific source for all things Horror.
"Gavin’s prose is at once poetic and powerful, confident and sublime, lyrical and muscular; his voice is that of an older era, assured, regal and stately. The words are wholly fitting for their subject matter and create a sense of dreamy languidness, which lulls the reader into a comforting embrace that often is anything but."
The complete review may be read here.
My thanks to Paul Michaels for taking the time to read the book and write up his reflections.
