Books by Matthew G. Rees

NOW AVAILABLE - In a special limited edition of 50 numbered copies, author-signed, with original art 

An 11,000-word story from Matthew G. Rees. Entertainment with an edge, in the macabre-yet-mirthful style of his tales 'Frayed', 'Queen Bee', 'A Shining Beacon' & 'The Cheese', including illustrations specially drawn to go with the story.

In its own full-size and perfect-bound book.

The irreverent and darkly satirical tale of a devilish haunting.

LIFE'S proving a let-down for would-be poet Joshua Wren. He has troubles galore. Any muse he might have had has very much gone missing. 

Rakish pulp fiction writer Desmond Delvington-Drake - Josh's late uncle - seldom had such problems, never mind several brushes with scandal. 

If Josh is to get his life back on track, could a relic unearthed from Desmond's colourful past hold the key?

'What finally did for my Uncle Desmond was the piece Claude Snipe wrote for Capital Letter...'

'And that was the end of Desmond Delvington-Drake. Or so I believed...'

Said Matthew G. Rees: 'I'm so thrilled we've finally been able to present TYPE in this way. This is definitely my preferred presentation of this tale. This one's my own edit, working with a family-run printer. You might say it's an example of how I like things to be done. This has very much been an indie effort. And I believe the quality is high. Part of the thinking has been to create a small collectable. My thanks to all who helped. I hope people like the tale and its treatment.'  

Spec: 5.5in x 8.5in paperback, 'perfect-bound', glossy cover, 47 pages, 100gsm paper, three original illustrations by artist Gill Figg. This Periodde Press edition being a run of 50 copies only, individually numbered and signed by Matthew G. Rees.

'beautifully written, hauntingly atmospheric, full of palpable dread and weirdness, but also with poignancy and humour. . . a joy to discover' - author and BAFTA-winning screenwriter Stephen Volk

IN The Tip a quarrel over a gratuity at a restaurant leads to a nightmarish chase across current-day Moscow on a bitter-cold evening that reaches a haunting climax in a cemetery filled with snow... and some of Russia's most famous names.

The story opens with the memorable line -

 

'The hatred the waitress had for me was as deep and succulent as the finest beefsteak...'  

 

This feted, surreal short story was specially selected for publication in a limited edition of 250 copies by The Short Story (TSS Publishing) and printed by Furnival Press of London (ISBN 978-0-9957849-2-5).

The tale runs to some 2,900 words over 14 pages in a paperback pocketbook measuring approximately 10.5 cm x 15 cm.

 

In a nod to the Russian story-teller Nikolai Gogol (writer of such tales as 'The Overcoat'), academic and author Alan Bilton called the story 'a short, Gogol-esque masterpiece'.

Note: This is the only publication of this story. It does not exist elsewhere in any collection or magazine.

This story has been published by independent Wales-based press Three Impostors as part of its Wentwood Tales series of stories in the tradition of Welsh writer of the supernatural Arthur Machen. However, this is not 'period writing'. As with most work by Rees, it is contemporary fiction set in the present.

It appears in a limited edition of 200 numbered copies. Twenty-eight pages, buckram cover, with front and back flaps. It is available via threeimpostors.co.uk  Note: a version of 'The Word' appears in Keyhole.
