Could fearing for your life be the ultimate aphrodisiac? A modern Los Angeles noir. Black ops. Murder for hire. And a love story about people invisible to the citizens of the ordinary, waking world. From Publishers Weekly Starred Review :. Schow presents alternating chapters from the viewpoint of characters with a variety of different aliases, then torques the plot with so many outrageous twists that they cease to be unbelievable. A kinetic, comical thriller that fires away with abandon.

We expect them to sell quickly. Lynne M. Dawson explores superpowers, harassment, and revenge in"Catcall. Those pieces are only the beginning. We're happy to report that Robert McCammon's The Providence Rider is returning to the world with a small trade hardcover reprint. We've seen copies of this entry in Matthew Corbett's adventures climb in price on the secondary market, and wanted to offer a bit more reasonably priced alternative.
The Providence Rider remains my favorite of the Corbett novels, as McCammon gathers an extensive cast of cuththroats and bad doers under one roof, then drops Matthew right in the middle. The narrative begins in the winter of , with Matthew still haunted by his lethal encounter with notorious mass murderer Tyranthus Slaughter.
When an unexplained series of explosions rocks his Manhattan neighborhood, Matthew finds himself forced to confront a new and unexpected problem. Someone is trying—and trying very hard—to get his attention. The professor, it turns out, has a problem of his own, one that requires the exclusive services of Matthew Corbett. The ensuing narrative moves swiftly and gracefully from the emerging metropolis of New York City to Pendulum Island in the remote Bermudas.
In the course of his journey, Matthew encounters a truly Dickensian assortment of memorable, often grotesque, antagonists. These include Sirki, the giant, deceptively soft-spoken East Indian killer, Dr. The result is both an exquisitely constructed novel of suspense and a meticulous recreation of a bygone era.
Here's a bit of praise for the novel from Publishers Weekly:. Shanghaied in from Manhattan to Pendulum Island, the Bermuda home of his nemesis, criminal mastermind Professor Fell, Matthew is tasked with finding out who among Fell's criminal confederates is leaking to England Fell's plans to sell a devastating new type of weapon to the nation's European enemies. Once again, McCammon provides a colorful and well-researched depiction of colonial America, enlived by a rogues' gallery of well-drawn characters. Hair's-breadth escapes and the teasing promise that characters who appear to have been disposed of might resurface in future adventures make this a rollicking good yarn.

Welcome to Spindrift House. The stories and legends surrounding the decrepit property are countless and contradictory, but one thing is clear: there are people willing to pay a great deal to determine the legal ownership of the house.

But Satoris, the youngest among them, was deemed too generous in his gifts to the race of Men, and so began the Shapers' War, which Sundered the world.
Now six of the Shapers lay to one end of a vast ocean, and Satoris to the other, reviled by even the race of Men. Satoris sits in his Darkhaven, surrounded by his allies. Chief among them is Tanaros Blacksword, immortal Commander General of his army. Once a mortal man who was betrayed by King and Wife, Tanaros fled to Darkhaven a thousand years ago, and in Satoris's service has redeemed his honor-but left his humanity behind.
Now there is a new prophecy that tells of Satoris's destruction and the redemption of the world. To thwart it, Satoris sends Tanaros to capture the Lady of the Ellylon, the beautiful Cerelinde, to prevent her alliance with the last High King of Men. But Tanaros discovers that not all of his heart has been lost--his feelings for Cerelinde could doom Satoris, but save the race of Men.
This one is a doozy. We've been at work on Warren Ellis' Dead Pig Collector for roughly five years and owe Warren a huge thank you for helping pull the project together when we thought it was past resurrecting.

A handful of Messengers brave the night to keep the lines of communication open between the increasingly isolated populace.

From Sense of Wonder:. We're happy to let you know that Tim Powers' electrifyng new novella, More Walls Broken , has just been sent to the printer. You can visit the book's product page for an excerpt.
Meanwhile, here's a bit of description and a cutting from the Publishers Weekly review What follows is the sort of dizzying, mind-expanding entertainment that only the always reliable, always astonishing Tim Powers could have written. Their goal: to open a door between the world of the living and the world of the dead, and to capture the ghost of the recently deceased scientist Armand Vitrielli. For their own desperate reasons, they hope to avail themselves of the secrets Vitrielli left behind at the time of his death. Their experiment, naturally, fails to come off exactly as planned.
A door between the worlds does, in fact, open, letting in something—someone—completely unexpected, and setting in motion a chain of events that will reverberate throughout the narrative. The result is a brilliantly imagined account of multiple realities and unintended consequences that is pure dazzle, pure storytelling, pure—and unmistakable—Tim Powers. In book after book, story after story, Powers has set the standard for literate imaginative fiction. With this essential, beautifully realized novella, he has done it once again. The signed limited edition will be bound in leather and include two full-color interior illustrations by Jon Foster not in the trade hardcover.

Lansdale provides consistent entertainment for readers of all genres, not only in his fiction but also in the chatty intro and in afterwords of each yarn. Despite the genre hopping, Lansdale's storytelling skills make each piece worthwhile.
It's especially impressive how distinct each story feels: style and dialogue seem perfectly attuned to each genre's demands, though the writing is equally strong throughout. Eras such as the Depression and the s are evoked in terms that have less to do with naturalism than with popular iconography… A hard-nosed and evocative set of stories that carry a rough-hewn pleasure.

We're pleased to present a glimpse into Charlie Jane Anders' novella, in this short exclusive interview conducted by our own Gwenda Bond. Can you tell me a little about the genesis of this story—where did it come from and how did it develop? Bush era. We were invading Iraq and there was all sorts of stuff going on that was freaking me out, and I wanted to try to write about it in my fiction.
And meanwhile, I was interested in trying to take my comedy as far as I could—not just in terms of being funny, but in terms of weirdness and extremeness. But then in ish, John Joseph Adams and Hugh Howey were editing a trio of anthologies that were pre-apocalyptic, apocalyptic, and post-apocalyptic, and I was able to cut the novel down to three installments of around words each. More recently, I decided to try revising the 21,word version one more time, to see if it could become a standalone project.
Cutting out a lot of random subplots and weird side trips from the full-length novel definitely went a long way towards making it more readable, I think. Did they come to you fully fleshed out or how did you develop them? And yes! Pratfalls are basically my life, so I kind of identify with slapstick characters. While I was working on this book, I got a big boxset of Harold Lloyd movies, which I highly supermassively recommend.
They are incredible films that hold up to this day, plus you get a beautiful view of Los Angeles from almost years ago, with streetcars everywhere.
