MHB Press / Hard Gore Press

I live in England and would like to introduce you and talk to you about a press from England. You may already know them and you may have bought from them.
I was lucky enough to acquire a book published by Hard Gore Press called "Grease Monkey and other tales of Erotic Horror" by Graham Masterson and was quite blown away.

MHB Press (Mansion House Books) and Hard Gore Press are the same publisher. They both specialise in finely bound signed limited editions of "out of print" and classic works of horror and erotic horror and let me tell you that when "Grease Monkey" arrived and was in my hands, I knew straight away the book was something special. What struck me first was the packaging, the book was so well protected you could drop it from the Empire State Building and see no damage to your book (now that's what every collector wants to hear.) The book itself comes in the publishers own shrink wrap, it's then wrapped in the publishers personalised wrapping paper, then it's bubble wrapped, then boxed and finally over the box is a padded envelope! Wow, you know the publisher cares about his books! For me this blows all other publishers out of the water, hell you need to buy a book just to see the bloody packaging! Yes it maybe a little over the top but I like the fact my book will arrive in pristine condition.

There are normally three choices available with most of MHB Press / Hard Gore Press books and they are as follows: Collectors Edition, Deluxe Edition and Lettered Edition. More information and the differences between these books can be found here:

Here is some photos of my Collectors Edition:

ILLUSTRATION

There are many illustrations throughout Grease Monkey, the above is just a taster, there is one for each story.
I am reading Grease Monkey now and will return with a review and my thoughts of the stories, so far they have been nothing but excellent!!!

I can vouch for the quality of books MHB puts out. I went ahead and joined the collectors club (I'm #89) and couldn't be happier. If you haven't checked them out yet you really should. I'm not a big fan of erotic horror but "The Sphinx" and "The Howling" are very fine collectables.

copefiend: I would say that erotic horror is not my thing so I understand what you are saying but then I have never read anything like erotic horror before and i'm very surprised how good Grease Monkey is. Graham Masterton is very clever with these stories, yes there is sex in there and some of it is hardcore but the stories have had some very good twists at the endings!

Greg (the publisher) has been quite clever. He has Hard Gore Press for the more over the top erotic horror and MHB for the classic horror. There is something for everyone.

Good point in clarifying that between HGP and MHB they have a little something for everyone. For anyone that hasn't dealt with Greg before he is a class act and in my experience will answer any question you have.

I got a copy of The Howling and it was one of the best packaging jobs I've seen. In fact, for a book of its size and weight, it was the best I've seen.
