Tanith Lee 1947-2015

It is with great sadness we have to report the death of Tanith Lee, on Sunday 24th May, at the age of 67, following a long illness. We were – and are – privileged to publish Tanith’s work, including the seven volume Colouring Book series, ‘Ghosteria 1’, ‘Ghosteria 2’ and ‘A Different City’.

Tanith had many plans for the future with several different publishers, including new works with Immanion Press. She wouldn’t – and didn’t – stop working until she was physically incapable of doing so. She was able to finish work on her story collection Legenda Maris before her death, and we will be publishing this volume in the near future, which will include two pieces written by Tanith in the last weeks of her life.

There are few writers of Tanith’s calibre, and she was without doubt one of the best fiction writers in the UK, who crossed many genres in her work, and influenced many other authors. She was also a strong supporter of other writers, for whom she provided so much inspiration. Her passing is a terrible loss to literature, as well as to those who loved her.

Our deepest condolences go to her husband John Kaiine.
