Описание:

WILLIAM KIMBER (76), doyen of ghost story publishers, died after a long illness on 26th April 1991. Seventeen years after joining Hutchinson, he founded William Kimber & Co in 1950, and the company retained its unique individuality until 1988 when it was bought by Thorsons. Known primarily for his specialities of war memoirs, autobiographies and motor-racing subjects, Kimber began publishing ghost story titles after the initial success of HAUNTED CORNWALL edited by Denys Val Baker in 1973. The annual Baker anthologies were soon joined by the collections of Mary Williams and James Turner, and the series (most instantly recognisable in their Iconicus dust jackets) continued to appear regularly with an average output of four or five titles each year. More than any other publisher William Kimber helped to keep new ghost story collections (as well as anthologies) before the public. R. Chetwynd Hayes, Meg Buxton, Frank Baker, Fred Urquhart, A. G. Scupham and Lanyon Jones, were among the names added to the list, and such acclaimed writers as A. L. Barker, J. C. Trewin, Rosalind Wade and Derek Stanford (who all deserve ghost story collections of their own) contributed regularly to Kimber anthologies. The passing of William Kimber marks the end of an era, and all ghost story devotees will hope that other likeminded publishers will arise to take his place.
