New release: KILL CITY BLUES out today!

  • Posted by admin on Jul 30 2013

Richard Kadrey’s fifth installment of the Sandman Slim series, KILL CITY BLUES, publishes today!

James Stark, aka Sandman Slim, has managed to get out of Hell, renounce his title as the new Lucifer, and settle back into life in L.A. But he also lost the Qomrama Om Ya, an all-powerful weapon from the banished older gods. Older gods who are returning and searching for their lost power.

The hunt leads Stark to an abandoned shopping mall—a global shopping paradise infested with Lurkers and wretched bottom-feeding Sub Rosa families, squatters who have formed tight tribes to guard their tiny patches of retail wasteland. Somewhere in this kill zone is a dead man with the answers Stark needs. All Stark has to do is find the dead man, recover the artifact, and outwit and outrun the angry old gods—and natural-born killers—on his tail. But not even Sandman Slim is infallible, and any mistakes will cost him dearly.

Cover reveal: Lauren DeStefano's Perfect Ruin!

  • Posted by admin on Jul 25 2013

This autumn, Lauren DeStefano’s brand new utopian series, The Internment Chronicles, kicks off with Perfect Ruin. Scroll down for your chance to see the beautiful cover!

On the floating city of Internment, you can be anything you dream. Unless you approach the edge.

Lauren DeStefano - Perfect Ruin

Morgan Stockhour knows getting too close to the edge of Internment, the floating city in the clouds where she lives, can lead to madness. Even though her older brother, Lex, was a Jumper, Morgan vows never to end up like him. If she ever wonders about the ground, and why it is forbidden, she takes solace in her best friend, Pen, and in Basil, the boy she’s engaged to marry.

Then a murder, the first in a generation, rocks the city. With whispers swirling and fear on the wind, Morgan can no longer stop herself from investigating, especially once she meets Judas. Betrothed to the victim, he is the boy being blamed for the murder, but Morgan is convinced of his innocence. Secrets lay at the heart of Internment, but nothing can prepare Morgan for what she will find – or whom she will lose.

Perfect Ruin is published in the UK on 3rd October 2013 and is available to pre-order NOW in trade paperback or eBook.

Thriller novel CHIMERA publishes today!

  • Posted by admin on Jul 23 2013

Happy pub-day to William Morrow author David Wellington for his sf/thriller CHIMERA: A Jim Chapel Mission!

Check out this excerpt from CHIMERA in our FREE digital sampler.

Wounded Special Forces veteran Jim Chapel has been stuck behind a desk rather than out in the field, but medical technology has finally caught up with his ambitions. Coupled with his unstoppable determination, it will take him back to where he thrives: the thick of the action.

Drafted into a new war, this time in our homeland, Chapel is tasked with hunting a group of escapees from a top secret military compound—all extremely deadly, genetically modified killers—and unraveling the mystery behind their existence. Aided by an enigmatic woman named Angel and a courageous, beautiful veterinarian, Chapel begins a cross-country hunt to stop the murders. But are the killers really rogues, or are they part of a sinister conspiracy that reaches into the highest levels?

DREAMS & SHADOWS ebook on sale today

  • Posted by admin on Jul 20 2013

C. Robert Cargill’s debut novel DREAMS AND SHADOWS is the Kindle Daily Deal today! Grab your copy now at this special price!

A brilliantly crafted modern tale from acclaimed film critic and screenwriter Cargill—Sinister, Deus Ex—that charts the lives of two boys from their star-crossed childhood in the realm of magic and mystery to their anguished adulthoods

Dreams and Shadows takes us into another world other than our own—one no closer than a kiss and one no further than our nightmares—where all the stuff of which dreams are made is real and magic is just a step away. Once bold explorers and youthful denizens of this magical realm, Ewan is now an Austin musician who just met his dream girl, and Colby, meanwhile, cannot escape the consequences of an innocent wish. But while Ewan and Colby left the Limestone Kingdom as children, it has never forgotten them. And in a world where angels relax on rooftops, whiskey-swilling genies argue metaphysics with foul-mouthed wizards, and monsters in the shadows feed on fear, you can never outrun your fate.

See why the Library Journal picked this book as a summer must-read, and why Tor.com says it’s “everything an urban fantasy sets out to be.”
