A Brutal Chill in August by Alan M. Clark“With A Brutal Chill in August, Alan M. Clark continues his terrific fictionalized accounts of the Ripper’s victims–always compelling, and always expertly evoking nineteenth century London. Gripping, suspenseful–written with sensitivity and heart.” –Simon Clark, author of Night of the Triffids

An Augmented Fourth by Tony McMillen“[An Augmented Fourth] is a wildly entertaining novel that is both a hilarious deconstruction and a tender love letter to rock and roll. McMillen has a knack for dialogue and that helps the action and the story move forward at breakneck speed. […] If you think you’d dig watching a psychedelia-infused version of The Thing while blasting awesome tunes and having a great acid trip, then you need to pick this one up.” –Gabino Iglesias, LitReactor

Trivia: Both A Brutal Chill in August and An Augmented Fourth feature fantastic cover art by the multi-talented Alan M. Clark!

Congratulations to Tony McMillen and his wife Taylor on the birth of their baby Nora Wren. If you’re picking up An Augmented Fourth this month and would like us to pass along a note of congratulations to the happy parents, please feel free to include it in the comments section of your order.

Now Available: A Spectral Hue

Craig Laurance Gidney’s A Spectral Hue drops today, marking and celebrating both Pride and Juneteenth with a tale of of art, obsession, and the ghosts that haunt us all. Here’s just some of the praise A Spectral Hue has received so far…

A Spectral Hue by Craig Laurance Gidney

“A deft look at obsession through a group of outsider artists in touch with something truly outside. A Spectral Hue is the kind of book that creeps up on you, baring its teeth only once you have moved calmly into the depths of its trap.” –Brian Evenson, author of Song for the Unraveling of the World

“A town and an art movement arise from a ghostly source in this arresting, hypnotic debut novel from Craig Laurance Gidney. Upon a grim undercoat drawn from America’s shameful histories of slavery and homophobic oppression, Gidney masterfully layers a centuries-spanning tale of survival, triumph, and obsession, with a memorable cast of characters linked by a secret both joyous and frightening. No simple tale of terror, A Spectral Hue enthralls as much as it disturbs.” –Mike Allen, author of Unseaming and Aftermath of an Industrial Accident

A Spectral Hue is a subtly disturbing hymn to the joy and terror of working with a muse, to queer passion and creation, and to the power of art to channel both ancestral voices and personal journeys with equal intensity.” –Ruthanna Emrys, author of Winter Tide
