Here's the next entry in our series of October releases:

 

Billed by its original publisher as a 'modern Dracula story', Temple Thurston's MAN IN A BLACK HAT (1930) opens with a shocking death: hours after buying a unique 16th-century occult manuscript, a man is found slashed to death in a hotel room locked from the inside. It's ruled suicide, but his friend, Dr Hawke, suspects the involvement of Gollancz, a sinister figure whose face, beneath the brim of his black sombrero hat, has not aged a day in over 40 years.... Features a new intro by Mark Valentine & cover art by Lorenzo Princi. More here: http://www.valancourtbooks.com/man-in-a-black-hat-1930.html
