Candy Jar Books is proud to announce a special edition of The HAVOC Files 3 is now up for pre-order.

Strange fungoid creatures in Hull, a deserted Scottish village at Hallowe’en, wishes coming true, and a special mission for Samson and Evans in Llanfairfach. Young Ali Lethbridge-Stewart and his friends investigate strange happenings in Pengriffen, and Professor Travers returns to Tibet, only to find he’s being followed by enemy agents.

Ten short stories, including two previously only available in digital format, published in print for the first time.

‘A Funny Turn’ by Alyson Leeds. Newly promoted Captain Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart finds himself under attack from a most unlikely adversary!

‘The Case of the Missing Fairy’ by Steven Walton. Christmas 1982 and the Brigadier is asked to investigate a most peculiar crime.

  • ‘The Wishing Bazaar’ by Sharon Bidwell

Originally published at the start of 2017 as a limited print-run, The HAVOC Files 3 joined its predecessors in selling out quickly. The HAVOC Files 3: Special Edition is a reprint with a difference, containing as it does updated editions of previous stories, and two short stories available for the first time in print.

Head of Publishing Shaun Russell explains: “With the success of The HAVOC Files 2: Special Edition earlier this year, it was a forgone conclusion that we’d do a special edition reprint of The HAVOC Files 3. As with the previous release, we decided to look at it as an opportunity to revise a few of the stories, fixing continuity errors and the like, as well as bringing to print two short stories only previously available digitally.”

Range Editor Andy Frankham-Allen continues: “This time around we decided to replace The Lost Skin part two (available as part of the larger whole in The Lost Skin novella) with Steven Walton’s The Case of the Missing Fairy. This was originally released digitally for Christmas 2017. Steven is taking the opportunity to expand it somewhat for the print edition. Joining it will be another previous Christmas free story; this time A Funny Turn by Alyson Leeds. Alyson is a solid writer, who wrote last year’s highly popular Fear of the Web. A Funny Turn is set during the earlier days of Lethbridge-Stewart’s career, and sees him being targeted by the Great Intelligence in a rather unique way.”
