The Best of Kage Baker:

A treasure trove that gathers together twenty stories and novellas, eleven of which have never been collected anywhere.

The volume is bookended by a pair of tales from her best known and best loved creation: The Company, with its vivid cast of time traveling immortals. In “Noble Mold,” Mendoza the botanist and Joseph, the ancient “facilitator,” find themselves in 19th century California, where a straightforward acquisition grows unexpectedly complex, requiring, in the end, a carefully engineered “miracle.” In “The Carpet Beds of Sutro Park,” an autistic Company operative named Ezra encounters a lost soul named Kristy Ann, and finds a way to give her back the world that she has lost.


When Maris gets caught up in a homicide investigation - with the body bearing her ID - her life is naturally about to get very complicated. So she leaves the planet seeking sanctuary, but will the handsome young officer Gabrel be the man to ensure her safety?

The Complete Chronicles of the Raven.

All three are large Trade paperback copies in good condition .

The Raven is a band of six humans and one elf in the war-torn kingdom of Balaia, which Barclay fills with the fruits of his considerable knowledge of military history and folklore. The comrades are no nicer than fellows loyal to one another and no one else need be, and their latest commission is a poser for them. They are to escort a Xeteskian mage, who is working for only the gods know whom, on a mission to find Dawnthief, a ring, or more precisely, a spell connected to a ring, that in the wrong hands could end the world. The mission is backed and supervised by the Dark College, which is even more untrustworthy than the mage. So matters rapidly deteriorate…

Devil Take the Blue-Tail Fly by John Franklin Bardin

“What if your husband had fallen in love with someone else?” Dr. Danzer had asked her gently. “Would that be so terrible?”

New York, 1946, and Ellen is returning home to Basil after the breakdown that has interrupted her career as one of the city’s most gifted concert harpsichordists. Over the next terrifying weeks, John Franklin Bardin’s finest novel plays a virtuoso performance on themes of music and madness, unfolding an unforgettable thriller-nightmare in which Ellen is both the criminal — and the agonized victim.

Julian Symons commended this novel with the following review: “One of the most convincing and frightening ‘psychological’ crime stories ever written. Bardin was ahead of his time. He belongs not to the world of Agatha Christie and John Dickson Carr, but to that of Patricia Highsmith and Edgar Allan Poe.”

This new edition features a new introduction by Frank Bardin, John Franklin Bardin’s son, and the first part of an unfinished novel, “Black Counted Fair,” published here for the first time anywhere.

Combined with cover art by Dan Rempel, this new edition of Devil Take the Blue-Tail Fly is essential noir reading. Perhaps just as important, this publication of Devil Take the Blue-Tail Fly marks its first-ever U.S. hardcover appearance!

The Last of Philip Banter by John Franklin Bardin

Philip Banter is a little too fond of drink, and his marriage is not what it should be. That doesn’t mean he’s losing his mind.

Then Philip finds in his office fifteen pages of a manuscript entitled “Confession.” He reads about a surprise dinner party his wife held, of the conversation that took place and — to his horror — of his own infidelity. But the “confession” turns out to be a prophecy: accurate in almost every detail.

Is he the victim of a conspiracy to kill him or drive him mad, or did he type the manuscript himself? As the “confession” grows lengthier and more destructive, can he find the willpower to resist its terrifying inevitability?

This new edition of The Last of Philip Banter features a new introduction by Ramsey Campbell. Combined with cover art by Dan Rempel, this new edition of The Last of Philip Banter is essential psychological noir reading.

Barker’s first 'Tide Child' fantasy epic.

A ridge of mountains separates sprinklings of small islands, and the only material strong enough to make ocean going ships is sea dragon bone. However, dragons are long extinct and the old ships increasingly ramshackle, so a bitter and destructive conflict between the Hundred Isles and the Gaunt Islands may at last sputter out. The sighting of a dragon sends conspirators after the beast, some hoping to harvest its bones and others intending to kill it before its carcass can be used to renew the war. One of the seekers is Meas Gilbryn, a disgraced aristocrat turned pacifist. At the novel’s opening, she seizes control of the Tide Child, a ship crewed by men and women who have been condemned to death, by slapping down its pathetically failed captain, Joron Twiner.

Barrett, Neal Jr. - Other Seasons

Neal Barrett, Jr. answers (sometimes) to a number of names: Odd, Weird, Gonzo, and, as a former collection points out: Slightly Off Center. Barrett is all of the above, and more. From readers who have followed his career come accolades such as brilliant, unique, sheer genius. Other writers respect his status as a master of words, his ability to weave rhythm and poetry into his tales.

Barrett jumps in and out of genres at will, or simply invents one of his own. He likes to bring his favorite characters together, and see what they’ll do. In “Sallie C.” he puts The Wright Brothers, young Erwin Rommel and Sheriff Pat Garrett in a shabby hotel out west.“Highbrow” finds generations of devoted workers building a half-mile high statue of Richard Nixon.“Tony Red Dog” describes the trials and tribulations of the only Apache in the New York mob.

Neal Barrett, Jr. has made a special effort to give us a number of dark, funny, and hopefully impossible views of the future. Present in this collection are “Under Old New York,” “Radio Station St. Jack,” and the much heralded “Ginny Sweethips’ Flying Circus.”

The Best of Elizabeth Bear contains 27 stories and novellas, many never before collected, that encompass an astonishing range of themes, settings, ideas and emotions.

The collection opens with “Covenant,” a tale of serial murder unlike any you have ever read, and closes with the extraordinary “Erase, Erase, Erase.” The latter is a surrealist tour de force in which the unnamed narrator, a former cult member, reflects on her life, her nebulous but guilty past, and her constantly diminishing sense of self. In between these bookends are more than two dozen carefully crafted tales that never fail to resonate beyond the final page.

“Tideline,” winner of both the Hugo and Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Awards, tells the surprisingly moving story of Chalcedony, a former “war machine” determined to preserve the memories of her dead human companions.

“Shoggoths in Bloom,” another Hugo winner, offers a fresh take on H.P. Lovecraft’s Mythos, setting the action in a pre-WWII II world marked by racism and virulent anti-Semitism. “Faster Gun” is a tale of the Old West in which Doc Holliday and Johnny Ringo encounter an impossible alien artefact. The long novella “In the House of Aryaman, a Lonely Signal Burns” takes place in Bangalore, India fifty years from now and tells the story of a murder in which the victim’s body is literally turned inside out.

In the affecting “Sonny Liston Takes The Fall,” we are brought to an entirely new understanding of one of the iconic moments of boxing history.

Subterranean Press is proud to announce the capstone novella to the New Amsterdam series.


For centuries, the wampyr has drifted from one place to another. From one life to another. It's 1962, and he's returned to New Amsterdam for the first time since he fled it on pain of death some sixty years before. On the eve of social revolution, on the cusp of a new way of life, he's nevertheless surrounded by inescapable reminders of who he used to be.

For a thousand years, he's chosen to change rather than to die. Now, at last, he faces a different future...

Ambrose Bierce  - Library of Weird Fiction

Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914?) was the leading American writer of weird fiction between Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft. A prolific journalist and fierce satirist, Bierce brought a distinctly sardonic and misanthropic vision to his short fiction.

After serving in some of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War, he wrote dozens of tales of psychological terror using the war as a backdrop. Among these are such famous stories as “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge,” “Chickamauga,” and “One of the Missing.” In these tales, Bierce etched with unsparing realism the fear, alarm, and apprehension that soldiers feel in the heat of battle.

Bierce applied his psychological acumen to tales of “civilians” as well. In such stories as “The Suitable Surroundings,” “A Watcher by the Dead,” and “The Man and the Snake,” Bierce pungently depicted the sensations of characters beset by fears of death. He also employed his keen analysis of human foibles in tales of the supernatural, such as “The Death of Halpin Frayser,” a hideous account of incest and revenants; “The Middle Toe of the Right Foot,” a chilling story of supernatural revenge; and “The Eyes of the Panther,” a tale of possible metempsychosis.

Bierce also wrote such pioneering tales as “The Damned Thing,” about an invisible monster, and “Moxon’s Master,” which broaches the possibility of artificial intelligence.

A distinctive branch of Bierce’s fictional work are his political fantasies, where he utilizes his cynicism in regard to American political institutions and politicians in creating imaginary realms in the manner of Jonathan Swift and Voltaire.

This collection presents a generous selection of Bierce’s weird fiction, with introduction and bibliography.

The volume has been edited by S. T. Joshi, a renowned expert on weird fiction. Joshi is the author of The Weird Tale (1990), The Modern Weird Tale (2001), and Unutterable Horror: A History of Supernatural Fiction(2012).

The Devil's Dictionary by Ambrose Bierce,

If we could only put aside our civil pose and say what we really thought, the world would be a lot like the one alluded to in The Devil’s Dictionary. There, a bore is "a person who talks when you wish him to listen," and happiness is "an agreeable sensation arising from contemplating the misery of another."

A virtual onslaught of acerbic, confrontational wordplay, The Unabridged Devil’s Dictionary offers wickedly clever definitions to the vocabulary of everyday life. Little is sacred and few are safe, for Bierce targets just about any pursuit, from matrimony to immortality, that allows our willful failings and excesses to shine forth.

Door Gunner and Other Perilous Flights of Fancy

by Michael Bishop

In the course of a distinguished career now entering its fifth decade, Michael Bishop has amassed a large body of fiction notable for its intellectual range, narrative sophistication, and sheer stylistic elegance. This massive new retrospective, The Door Gunner and Other Perilous Flights of Fancy, amply celebrates that career, offering one example after another of Bishop’s unique—and characteristic—virtuosity.

This generous volume contains a preface by Bishop scholar Michael H. Hutchins, a shrewd and sympathetic introduction by Jack McDevitt, detailed—and highly readable—story notes, and twenty-five stories and novellas, many never before collected, all of them newly revised for this definitive collection. The contents proceed in chronological order, beginning with Bishop’s first professional story sale, “Piñon Fall,” and ending with “The City Quiet as Death,” a recent collaboration with Steven Utley.

Along the way, readers will rediscover a number of bona fide Bishop classics (“Blooded on Arachne,” the Nebula Award-winning “The Quickening”), together with a varied assortment of equally memorable tales. These include the wonderfully titled—and mordantly funny—“The Yukio Mishima Cultural Association of Kudzu Valley, Georgia,” “Help Me, Rondo,” a moving account of the last days of disfigured character actor Rondo Hatton, “The Angst, I Kid You Not, of God,” a whimsically serious reflection on violence and the sense of “divine dread” that permeates the universe, and “Miriam,” a beautifully concise re-imagining of the central spiritual drama of Western Civilization.

A Beastly Business by John Blackburn

Bill Easter is a petty criminal with a little problem of a £2000 overdraft that he has no means of covering. Fortunately, the bank manager has a problem of his own and needs Bill’s help: the corpse of Henry Oliver, a very hairy 350 lb. mass murderer known as the “Mad Vicar,” is decomposing in his basement and he wants it removed.

Among Oliver’s papers, Bill finds a tantalizing reference to treasure that leads him to the Scottish isle of Rhona, where he meets the intrepid General Charles Kirk of British Foreign Intelligence and the arrogant adventurer J. Moldon Mott.

Kirk has uncovered a bizarre plot involving the KGB, ex-Nazi mad scientists, and the “mad monk” Rasputin, while Mott is hot on the trail of a stolen gold treasure. And when they discover the island is being overrun by werewolves, their trip to the remote island will become a very beastly business indeed!

A Beastly Business (1982) features the trademark blend of mystery, adventure, and horror that made John Blackburn (1923-1993) one of the most acclaimed British thriller writers of his generation.

One of the scarcest of Blackburn’s books and long unobtainable, A Beastly Business is reprinted here for the first time ever in a handsome hardcover edition.

Limited to 200 copies, signed by Bob Eggleton.

Blue Octavo by John Blackburn

When bookseller James Roach is found dead after paying an exorbitant sum for Grey Boulders, a rare but apparently valueless volume on mountaineering, the police write it off as suicide.

But his young colleague John Cain suspects foul play when he discovers the book is missing and that someone has been going to great lengths to obtain every copy of Grey Boulders in existence.

Is it a case of some deranged collector driven to murder by his bibliomania, or is there some secret contained in the book that is worth killing for?

It’s a race against time as Cain joins forces with egocentric adventurer J. Moldon Mott and beautiful heiress Julia Lent to solve the mystery. Can they stop the killer before he gets hold of the last remaining copy, or will one of them become his next victim?

A prolific author of thrillers and horror novels, John Blackburn (1923-1993) also managed a secondhand bookstore, and he draws on this background in Blue Octavo (1963), a clever and fast-paced tale set in the shady world of antiquarian bookselling.

The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of this iconic masterpiece of horror and paranormal suspense, Suntup Editions is delighted to announce a fine press limited edition of The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty.

One of the most controversial novels ever written, The Exorcist was first published in June 1971, and would go on to become a cultural phenomenon. The book spent fifty-seven weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, seventeen consecutively at #1. Five decades later, the novel retains its power to possess readers with its raw and visceral prose.

Inspired by a 1949 article in The Washington Post in which a Catholic priest recounts his experience performing the ritual of exorcism on a young child, William Peter Blatty’s groundbreaking novel details the demonic possession of eleven-year-old Regan MacNeil. When neither medical professionals nor psychiatrists can come to Regan’s aid, her mother enlists the assistance of two priests. Overwhelmed but determined, they endeavor to rescue Regan from an unspeakable fate. To do so, they must face a series of terrifying moments that will test not only their strength, but the very core of their faith.

Two years after its publication, The Exorcist, was adapted for the screen by Blatty. The film, directed by William Friedkin, who has penned an exclusive introduction for this edition of the novel, would become a wildly successful motion picture, garnering ten Academy Award nominations. Friedkin and Blatty formed a lifelong friendship, with Friedkin often referring to Blatty as “my brother,” and “the most spiritual man I ever met.” To both men, The Exorcist was not a horror story, but one of the great mystery of faith. Friedkin’s new introduction chronicles the moments of inspiration that led Blatty to write the novel.

On September 27, 2011, The Exorcist was re-released as a 40th Anniversary Edition in hardcover, paperback and audiobook featuring new and revised material. Of this edition, Blatty wrote:

“This will have a touch of new material in it as part of an all-around polish of the dialogue and prose. First time around I never had the time (meaning the funds) to do a second draft, and this, finally, is it. With forty years to think about it, a few little changes were inevitable — plus one new character in a totally new, very spooky scene. This is the version I would like to be remembered for.”

Defender of the Innocent

The Criminal Defense Lawyer.


Martin H. Ehrengraf, dapper and diabolical, may be Lawrence Block’s darkest creation. He’s the defense attorney who never sees the inside of a courtroom, because all his clients are innocent—no matter how guilty they may seem. Some even believe themselves to be guilty: they remember pulling the trigger, or wiring the dynamite to their spouse’s car, or holding the bloody blade. But things have a way of working out when Martin Ehrengraf is on the case. Evidence turns up, incriminating someone else. More murders occur, with the same M.O. And the gate of the jail cell opens, and the accused walks free.

But be careful —hiring Martin Ehrengraf comes with a price. A high price, one that comes due even if he appears to have done nothing on your behalf. And you’d better be prepared to pay…

Here at last are the complete exploits of Martin Ehrengraf: a dozen delicious tales of vice and villainy including one – “The Ehrengraf Fandango”—that is appearing for the first time anywhere. It’s a twelve-course meal of sinister surprises, exquisitely prepared and served simmering hot by the greatest living master of mystery fiction.

Subterranean Press - First Edition Hardcover

Holding up a mirror to humanity, this sci-fi masterpiece poses pertinent ethical questions while sending readers on an action-packed intergalactic adventure.

First published in 1963, 'Planet of the Apes' spawned a global media franchise: an Oscar-nominated film was followed by four sequels, while reboots and remakes, television series and comics saw its popularity skyrocket. Returning to its literary origins, the first Folio illustrated edition of Xan Fielding’s classic translation sees the bold impact of David de las Heras’s artwork, adding to the credibility of Pierre Boulle’s story. Meanwhile, the unnerving moral allegory is explored by world-renowned primatologist Frans de Waal, in a specially commissioned introduction.

Set on the idyllic-looking planet of Soros, the story follows three astronauts who leave Earth in the year 2500. Initially ecstatic to find a lush biosphere with human inhabitants, Ulysse and his fellow travellers are shocked to discover that the pathetic human population is ruled by an intellectually superior civilisation of apes..

The Architect of Sleep by Steven R. Boyett

Fresh out of college, Jim Bentley has no idea what to do with his life. A dead-end job at 7-Eleven, movies, caving in sinkhole tunnels in central Florida.

But life has plans for Bentley — because one day he stumbles into a different world. Evolution took a different path here. Primates don’t rule the world. Raccoons do.

Surviving in the woods, Bentley befriends one of these intelligent creatures, and soon learns that she is more than she seems. For Bentley has landed in the midst of turmoil: political coup, class uprising, and imminent war — and his new alien friend has something to do with all of it.

And she seems to think he has a part to play in her agenda. If he can stay alive.

This classic novel of alternate evolution, one of the most well-written, frustrating, and highly regarded fantasy novels of the last 50 years, is finally back in print after 35 years, in its first hardcover edition.

This book features a new afterword by Steven Boyett (explaining, in part, the lack of a second volume), as well as new dustjacket artwork by Brenoch Adams, the original paperback art by Jim Gurney, endpapers by David Ho, and ten interior black & white illustrations by Cristina Bencina. It is signed by Boyett, Bencina, Adams and Ho.

The book is oversize at 6½ × 10 inches and is printed on acid-free Cougar paper with a Smyth sewn binding complete with head and tail bands and a ribbon marker

I'm Waiting for You and Other Stories by Kim Bo-young

Two worlds, four stories, infinite possibilities

One of South Korea’s most treasured writers explores the driving forces of humanity—love, hope, creation, destruction, and the very meaning of existence—in two pairs of thematically interconnected stories.

In “I’m Waiting for You” and “On My Way,” an engaged couple coordinate their separate missions to distant corners of the galaxy to ensure—through relativity—they can arrive back on Earth simultaneously to make it down the aisle. But small incidents wreak havoc on space and time, driving their wedding date further away. As centuries on Earth pass and the land and climate change, one thing is constant: the desire of the lovers to be together. In two separate yet linked stories, Kim Bo-Young cleverly demonstrate the idea love that is timeless and hope springs eternal, despite seemingly insurmountable challenges and the deepest despair.

In “The Prophet of Corruption” and “That One Life,” humanity is viewed through the eyes of its creators: godlike beings for which everything on Earth—from the richest woman to a speck of dirt—is an extension of their will. When one of the creations questions the righteousness of this arrangement, it is deemed a perversion—a disease—that must be excised and cured. Yet the Prophet Naban, whose “child” is rebelling, isn’t sure the rebellion is bad. What if that which is considered criminal is instead the natural order—and those who condemn it corrupt? Exploring the dichotomy between the philosophical and the corporeal, Kim ponders the fate of free-will, as she considers the most basic of questions: who am I?

Halo for Hire: The Paul Pine Mysteries by Howard Browne

“Of all of Raymond Chandler’s followers, the most Chandlerish of them all might have been Howard Browne. His private eye hero, PAUL PINE, is simply one of the great eyes, no matter how inspired by (or derivative of ) Chandler’s Philip Marlowe he might have been. All the Pine books are well worth reading, and A Taste of Ashes (1957) in particular is just a flat-out, stone-cold private eye classic.

Pine is a former investigator for the Illinois State attorney’s office in Chicago who works as a P.I. in Chicago. He’s got the obligatory cynicism, snappy similes and metaphors down pat, though he tends to be a bit more down to earth than Marlowe, and often mocks his own tendencies to moroseness and world-weariness. And let’s face it — Browne was a stronger plotter than Chandler.

In 1985, almost thirty years after Pine’s last appearance, Dennis McMillan published a book The Paper Gun. That volume collected the only previously-published Pine story, “So Dark For April,”

The Night and the Music,

Since his debut in 1976 in The Sins of the Fathers, Matthew Scudder has been universally acclaimed as one of the finest creations not just of MWA Grand Master Lawrence Block’s esteemed career but of the mystery genre as a whole. The star of 17 novels, two feature films, a graphic novel and most recently a standalone novella from Subterranean Press (A Time to Scatter Stones), Scudder is a brilliant creation whose humanity and painful struggle for redemption have given him a life beyond the page and a permanent place in millions of readers’ hearts.  

In The Night and the Music, Lawrence Block has compiled all of Scudder’s shorter cases into one volume, from the Edgar Award-winning “By the Dawn’s Early Light” (inspiration for the novel many consider the best in the series, When the Sacred Ginmill Closes) and the Shamus Award-winning “The Merciful Angel of Death” to the two substantial novelettes — “Out the Window” and “A Candle for the Bag Lady” — that kept the character alive after the first three novels fell victim to their publisher’s dire straits. Also included is the nostalgic “One Last Night at Grogan’s,” written especially for this collection.

In the pantheon of crime fiction, Matthew Scudder has earned a place alongside iconic figures such as Philip Marlowe, Sam Spade, and Lew Archer. This exceptional volume will remind you why.

Limited: 500 signed numbered copies, bound in leather, including the novella, A Time to Scatter Stones

Everything in All the Wrong Order: The Best of Chaz Brenchley

For more than thirty years, Chaz Brenchley has been one of Great Britain’s most distinguished—and uncategorizable—writers of speculative fiction. His award-winning short stories move with deceptive ease from one genre to another, offering an astonishingly varied array of sheer narrative pleasures. While much of his work may be unfamiliar to American readers, the appearance of this generous, career-spanning volume should do much to change all that.

The Best of Chaz Brenchley contains more than thirty stories from the author’s vast fictional archive, and each one of them is a polished, unexpected gem. Together, they encompass an impressive range of themes, subjects and settings, including: a drinking establishment frequented by the pilots who navigate the intricacies of n-space; a hazardous—and haunted—stretch of rocks off the British coastline known as the Silences; a post-World War I Europe still awash in grief and an abiding sense of loss; a terminal known as the Tower of Souls, from which earthbound humans can take flight; British colonialism both in 19th century Cairo and on Mars; and much, much more.

The stories gathered here are consistently readable, thoroughly imagined and written in a voice that is distinctive and instantly recognizable. But they never lose sight of the universal human concerns that lie at their center: guilt, loneliness, unfulfilled longings, and the inevitable threat of encroaching mortality. This magisterial collection offers all these things in generous measure, and the result is a book that readers have needed for a very long time, whether they know it or not. The Best of Chaz Brenchley is something truly special. Open it up at any point and find out for yourself.

The Actual Star by Monica Byrne

David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas meets Octavia Butler’s Earthseed series, as acclaimed author Monica Byrne (The Girl in the Road) spins a brilliant multigenerational saga spanning two thousand years, from the collapse of the ancient Maya to a far-future utopia on the brink of civil war.

The Actual Star takes readers on a journey over thousands of years and six continents —collapsing three separate timelines into one cave in the Belizean jungle.

An epic saga of three reincarnated souls, this novel demonstrates the entanglements of tradition and progress, sister and stranger, love and hate. The book jumps forward and backward in time among a pair of twins who ruled a Maya kingdom, a young American on a trip of self-discovery, and two dangerous charismatics in a conflict that will determine the fate of the few humans left on Earth after massive climate change.

In each era, age-old questions about existence and belonging and identity converge deep underground. Because only in complete darkness can one truly see the stars.

Those Across The River by Christopher Buehlman

The year is 1935. Failed Academic Frank Nichols and his partner, Eudora, have come south to claim an inheritance in the cursed and impoverished town of Whitbrow, Georgia.

But a blood debt is owed, and something in those woods has been waiting a long, long time to call it in.

Chesley Award-winning artist David Palumbo created a wraparound illustration for the dust-jacket and three breathtaking interior illustrations.

Guests by Kealan Patrick Burke

A child who can turn your reality into an unspeakable nightmare. A monster from childhood with wire-hangers for hands. A baby blanket that will suck the breath from your lungs. And a tour bus full of elderly visitors in search of a new life—even if it isn’t their own. These are the guests that occupy the mind of author Kealan Patrick Burke. Now, he invites them into yours.

Guests is a collection of four novellas by Kealan Patrick Burke, complete with new introductions to each story and illustrations by the author himself. “Jack and Jill” is a harrowing story of childhood trauma and how the scars it leaves behind can manifest into adult-sized nightmares; “Sour Candy” is a twisted and unnerving tale of psychological terror that holds readers as captive as its characters; “Blanky” is an emotionally charged study of loss, grief and rage; and “Guests,” a brand new story exclusive to this collection, is a chilling exploration of what makes a monster, what makes us human, and how the weak will always run rather than face their own reflections.

In each of these four novellas, Burke shows us that real horror lies in life’s tragedies. Guests is Kealan Patrick Burke at his most hauntingly lyrical and original, with four fear inducing tales of terror that will leave readers breathless.

The Artist edition is limited to 750 copies with a dust jacket illustrated by Kealan Patrick Burke. It is a full cloth, smyth-sewn binding with two-hits foil stamping. It is the only edition of the three with the dust jacket, and is signed by artist and author Kealan Patrick Burke. The edition is housed in an embossed paper covered slipcase with an acrylic coating.

Jaws by Peter Benchley

First published in 1974, Jaws by Peter Benchley is a riveting novel of suspense and horror that terrified millions of readers and inspired an iconic film franchise.  

When a great white shark preys upon the small seaside resort town of Amity, New York, police chief Martin Brody is one of the few residents taking the threat seriously. Nearly everyone in Amity wants to downplay the shark’s presence to not scare away the tourists. But when the body count starts to rise, Brody realizes he must find a way to kill it, even if means putting his own life on the line.

When Peter Benchley wrote Jaws in the early 1970s, he meticulously researched all available data about shark behavior. Over the ensuing decades, Benchley was actively engaged with scientists and filmmakers on expeditions around the world as they expanded their knowledge of sharks.

During this time, there was an upswing in shark hunting and tournaments. Benchley took this seriously and began working with governments and nonprofits to sound the alarm for shark conservation. He encouraged each new generation of Jaws fans to enjoy his riveting tale and to channel their excitement into support and protection of these magnificent, prehistoric apex predators.

This edition of Jaws contains bonus content from Peter Benchley’s archives, including the original typed title page, a brainstorming list of possible titles, a letter from Benchley to producer David Brown with honest feedback on the movie adaptation, and excerpts from Benchley’s book Shark Trouble highlighting his firsthand account of writing Jaws, selling it to Universal Studios, and working with Steven Spielberg. Also included is a reproduction and sketches of the iconic painting by Roger Kastel used on the original paperback cover and film poster.

Since its original publication, Jaws has spawned a movie franchise, two video games, a Universal Studios theme park attraction, and two musicals.

The Artist edition is limited to 1000 copies with a dust jacket featuring the iconic painting by Roger Kastel used on the original paperback cover and film poster. It is a full cloth, smyth sewn binding with two-hits foil stamping on the cover, and red stained edges.

It is the only edition of the three with the dust jacket, and is signed by artist John Anthony Di Giovanni. The edition is housed in an embossed paper covered slipcase with an acrylic coating. The bookcloth grade linen covering the edition is made using plastic collected from the ocean..

Stretching from the distant past into the remote future, from primordial Earth to the stars, Evolution is a soaring symphony of struggle, extinction, and survival; a dazzling epic that combines a dozen scientific disciplines and a cast of unforgettable characters to convey the grand drama of evolution in all its awesome majesty and rigorous beauty. Sixty-five million years ago, when dinosaurs ruled the Earth, there lived a small mammal, a proto-primate of the species Purgatorius.

From this humble beginning, Baxter traces the human lineage forward through time. The adventure that unfolds is a gripping odyssey governed by chance and competition, a perilous journey to an uncertain destination along a route beset by sudden and catastrophic upheavals. It is a route that ends, for most species, in stagnation or extinction. Why should humanity escape this fate?

The Lake of the Dead - André Bjerke

Translated from the Norwegian

A 1942 classic that has been voted Norway’s all-time best thriller, a brilliant mix of mystery and the supernatural

Deep in the darkest part of the Norwegian woods stands Dead Man’s Cabin, where 110 years ago a madman slew his sister and her lover, throwing their decapitated corpses in a nearby lake before drowning himself to join them in death. Ever since, the cabin has been cursed, and anyone who spends the night there is possessed by the killer’s spirit and infected with his madness.

Bjørn Werner, a young scholar from Oslo, ignored the old superstitions and bought the cabin as a place to read and work in quiet. Now he has disappeared, and the evidence suggests he threw himself in the lake in a fit of insanity. The police write it off as a suicide, but those who knew him are not so sure. Could the curse actually be real? Bjørn’s sister and five of his friends travel to the cabin to look into his death, but not all of them will return alive from their stay at the Lake of the Dead ...

André Bjerke’s The Lake of the Dead (1942) was voted the all-time best Norwegian thriller, and its atmospheric 1958 film adaptation is regarded as one of Norway’s best films. This new translation is the first-ever American publication of Bjerke’s classic, which features an unusual mixture of murder mystery and supernatural horror that will keep readers guessing until the thrilling conclusion.
