And the Darkness Back Again

Zagava:
Duesseldorf: 2021
First edition, Hardcover, Limited, New sans dust jacket as issued,
196 pp.


This edition limited to 176 numbered copies. “Like a gatefold album that reveals itself through striking images, text, screaming refrains, the stories of „And the Darkness Back Again“build and overlap. They strike a musical balance between chilling, phantasmagoric treatments of human relations and deadly foibles and the stark language of a 21st century nouveau roman. The collection is also a celebration of the genre that, for many, fascinates from a young age and never quite lets go. What Phillips has called elsewhere “critical horror” is displayed in these thirteen stories to affect tensely atmospheric, occasionally grisly paeans to the magical fears of childhood that become grim way stations in the adult’s journey toward fulfillment and extinction.” Beautiful. Thread-stitched hardcover, bound in silk moiré, embossed title on spine, illustrated color endpapers, head- and tailbands, silk ribbon marker. #67694
