Centipede Press

An Ecstasy of Fear Wilum Pugmire

Limited Edition $175.00

Centipede Press' second collection of stories by Wilum Pugmire contains the author’s hand-picked greatest stories and prose poems (and no overlap with our first collection, The Tangled Muse). Profusely illustrated by Tom Brown, the book also features a dustjacket by Camille Alquier, frontispiece by Matthew Jaffe, and an interior illustration by Gwabryel. 

The book also has a terrific introduction by S.T. Joshi. The book matches the size of The Tangled Muse, and is well-designed, and easy to read and hold.

Limited to 300 copies for sale, the book is bound in cloth and has a handsome blood-red ribbon marker and very nice deckled edges. Each copy is signed by Wilum Pugmire, S.T. Joshi, Camille Alquier, Tom Brown, and Matthew Jafffe.
