Out now,”Devil in the Dollhouse,”  a digital original short story from Richard Kadrey!

James Stark, a.k.a. Sandman Slim, has a new job, but being the new Lucifer in town gives fresh meaning to the word “Hell.” Especially when he hears of hideous massacres near a haunted fortress out on Hell’s frontier. As far as Stark’s concerned, the more dead Hellions, the better, but he still has to prove that no one screws with Sandman Slim. And facing creatures so terrible even Hell does not want them is no cakewalk, even for Lucifer.

Also out now, the trade paperback editions of SANDMAN SLIM, KILL THE DEAD, and ALOHA FROM HELL.

DEVIL SAID BANG, the next Sandman Slim novel, is out 8/28.

Great review for Richard Kadrey's DEVIL SAID BANG

  • Posted by admin on Jul 30 2012

DEVIL SAID BANG, the next Sandman Slim novel by Richard Kadrey, will be out 8/28, and it just received a great PW review!

“The most irreverent, darkly comedic, and downright cool installment to date. … Powered by Kadrey’s twisted wit and distinctive narrative voice, this novel is replete with memorable lines, images, and pop culture references. …The action-packed and bombshell-laden blend of dark fantasy, crime fiction, and Hellish sitcom is utterly readable.”

 Woohoo! We can’t wait for 8/28!

New paperbacks for Stephen Hunt – Master of Steampunk

  • Posted by admin on Jul 27 2012

It’s always exciting when new, shiny books land on my desk, and today I was thrilled to find the b-format paperback of From the Deep of the Dark by Stephen Hunt awaiting me when I came back from a meeting. This is the sixth and final tale of high adventure and derring-do from the undisputed master of steampunk literature. Although this fantastic novel can easily standalone from the rest of the series, we strongly recommend that you read them all, starting with The Court of the Air.

From the Deep of the Dark is available in b-format paperback on 13 September 2012.

‘Hunt’s imagination is probably visible from space … Hold on to your hat and let yourself get carried away’ SFX

A daring underwater chase ends in a battle for the Kingdom itself…

The streets of Middlesteel are under attack by an unseen enemy, leaving bloodless corpses in its trail. The newssheets scream vampire, but the truth is even more deadly than anyone knows.

Charlotte Shades, Mistress of Mesmerism, is a thief – and a darned good one at that. When two mysterious men ask her to steal King Jude’s Sceptre from the Parliament vaults, the challenge (and reward) is too great to pass up. After all, Charlotte’s natural charm and the magic of the gem she wears – the mysterious Eye of Fate – have never failed her before.

Only consulting detective Jethro Daunt and his steamman companion Boxiron know there’s more to these two men than meets the eye. Yet even as they rescue Charlotte from a fate worse than death, they are thrown into a plot thicker than even they realize. They escape beneath the waves in an ancient submarine led by Commodore Jethro Black, where they encounter stiff resistance from the strange people who inhabit the vast underwater kingdoms. But man, woman, seanore and gillneck alike must band together if they are to defeat a danger that might not even be from this world…

How much do we love Paul Goat Allen of BN.com’s book clubs review of Vicki Pettersson’s THE TAKEN?!

“Bottom line: Vicki Pettersson can no longer be called an urban fantasy novelist. This novel transcends genre categorization – yes, paranormal fantasy readers will LOVE The Taken but so too will hardcore mystery and romance fans and, most importantly of all, mainstream fiction fans.

This is Vicki Pettersson’s coming out party – and we’re all invited.”
