Well, there were rumours. There was a digital version. Terry Wiley had hinted about it.
But now it’s real. That’s the cover up there. Markosia have details up on their website:
“After a decade out of print, at last new readers get a chance to experience the various Tales of Sleaze Castle (which isn’t very sleazy, actually!). Meet Jo Dribble, perpetual student, her hard-drinking sister Petra, and her extra-dimensional friend Panda, ruler of another parallel Earth and of the giant crumbling Sleaze Castle. Petra’s adventures on Earth and Jo’s adventures on Panda’s planet are now collected in one bumper volume.”
Sleaze Castle Etcetera: The inComplete Final Cut Vol 1 (of 1): A limited edition, signed and numbered hardcover edition is available from Markosia, released in May and available from Bristol Expo and Kapow Con. It’s limited to just 100 copies, and each and every one will have a Terry Wiley sketch in the front.
Adrian Kermode’s name means it includes Petra Etcetera. Presumably the Final Cut thing means it also includes all three confusingly entitled Sleaze Castle series; Volume 1 – More Tales From Sleaze castle, Volume 2 – Tales From Sleaze Castle, and Volume 3 – Sleaze Castle.
UPDATE 11th March – From Terry Wiley… this is what it will have in it: “The whole of Tales, More Tales (inc. the extra story from Directors Cut 3 & 3 unpublished pages from DC4!), Petra Etcetera (including the bonus inserts and epilogue from the Petra Etcetera Lulu Book), plus all of the Sleaze Castle Calendar plates from ’96 and ’98.”
This is brilliant, wonderful news, it really is. Expect more news and cheers nearer the time.
