NEW TITLES FOR 2008
The following new titles are to be released by Telos Publishing later this year. The site has been updated with covers and further details.
Something in the Darkness: The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to TORCHWOOD Series Two

A companion guide to Telos' best-selling guide to the first series of TORCHWOOD. Stephen James Walker unpicks the series, looking at the development and build up to transmission, and then extensively reviewing and analysing the transmitted episodes.
Angel on the InsideBy Mike Ripley
Never before in paperback, this novel continues the adventures of Mike Ripley's popular Angel character.
A Family At War: The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to TILL DEATH US DO PART
By Mark Ward

Taboo Breakers: 18 Independent Films that Courted Controversy and Created a Legend
By Calum Waddell

Silver Scream: Volume 1: 40 Classic Horror Movies 1920 - 1941
Silver Scream: Volume 2: 40 Classic Horror Movies 1941 - 1951

Steven Warren Hill looks at the early days of horror film and discusses and analyses 80 key titles from the period (40 in each volume). 80 classic films from THE CABINET OF DOCTOR CALIGARI to THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD.
It's Alive! Horror Movies in the New Millennium
By Axelle Carolyn
Presented in a handsome large format, full colour illustrated hardback edition, Axelle Carolyn's assessment and analysis of the state of horror in the 21st Century will be of great interest to film buffs, critics and viewers alike. With an Introduction by Neil Marshall (DOG SOLDIERS, THE DESCENT, DOOMSDAY) and a Foreword by Mick Garris (MASTERS OF HORROR, THE STAND, THE SHINING, RIDING THE BULLET, DESPERATION, BAG OF BONES).
Monsters Within: The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to Doctor Who 2008
By Stephen James Walker
Continuing Telos Publishing's unrivalled coverage of DOCTOR WHO, the 2008 series is subjected to analysis and discussion as Stephen James Walker continues Telos' series of titles looking at the new series of DOCTOR WHO.
A number of discount offers have been added to the website.
For a limited time, until stocks have gone, we are offering sets of the Time Hunter science fiction/horror series and Hank Janson crime series of novellas and novels at a discounted rate. The price of several of our acclaimed limited edition hardbacks have also been reduced to £20 for a limited period.

There is also a new LAST CHANCE TO BUY section on the site, highlighting several titles where we are down to the last few copies, and which no further reprints are planned, so this is an ideal time for fans to complete their collections or to sample some of our award-winning and critically acclaimed horror fiction.
FULL COLOUR TOYBOX
HOWE'S TRANSCENDENTAL TOYBOX is the only guide to all DOCTOR WHO merchandise and collectibles. While we are preparing the next update volume (to cover everything released in 2006 and 2007), the UPDATE NUMBER 2 edition, which covers 2004 and 2005, has sold out in its standard edition. Therefore we are using the opportunity to take advantage of new digital printing processes to offer a limited reprint of the book, but in full colour throughout! The original edition was in black and white and, to be honest, we were less than pleased with the quality of the printing. So we hope that this full colour edition will make up for that. This is something of an experiment, to see how well the process works, and how the sales and costings pan out, but if this all goes well, then we also hope to print the next new Update edition in full colour.
As the price of the colour printing is more than black and white, the price of the book has been raised from £7.99 to £12.99, but we believe that this represents incredible value for 161 pages in FULL COLOUR!

BRITISH FANTASY AWARDS LONGLIST
The very wonderful British Fantasy Society have announced their longlist for their annual Awards, and we're delighted and honoured to see that Telos have a few recommendations on there:
Force Majeure by Daniel O'Mahony
Time Hunter 11: Child of Time by George Mann and David J Howe
Black Tide by Del Stone Jr
BEST SMALL PRESS
Hopefully any members of the BFS who are voting in the awards (and if you're not ... why not!) will consider Telos' titles favourably in their final votes - there is as usual very strong competition from the other small press publishers, as well as some great titles from the major publishers, so the outcome is by no means certain.
Congratulations to everyone who made the long list, and we now wait with bated breath until the results are announced in September at the annual FantasyCon convention in Nottingham.
