Author Bio

Founder of the long running cult band Current 93, David Tibet is widely known as an artist and songwriter. His song cycles present a rich vein of ethereal imagery, arcane reference, and the supernatural, creating their own sound-worlds of heartfelt and mysterious poignancy. Mark Valentine is an author, editor and micro-publisher. As a biographer, Valentine has written studies of Arthur Machen and Sarban. Haunted By Books (2015) and A Country Still All Mystery (2017) are collections of essays about book collecting, minor writers and the uncanny.
