Updated Blurb, Cover, With DeadSteam October 1 Release Announced

Reader beware:  to open this tome is to invite dread into your heart.  Every page you turn will bring you closer to something wicked.  And when the dead begin to rise from the steaming pits of hell, only then will you discover that it is already too late.  Your life is forfeit.

Featuring an introduction by Leanna Renee Hieber, author of the Eterna Files and Strangely Beautiful saga, DeadSteam plays host to the scintillating writing of David Lee Summers (Owl Dance, The Brazen Shark), Jen Ponce (The Bazaar, Demon’s Cradle), Wendy Nikel (The Continuum), Karen J Carlisle (The Adventures of Viola Stewart), Jonah Buck (Carrion Safari), and more . . .

With seventeen chilling tales of dreadpunk, gaslamp, and dark steampunk, DeadSteam will leave you tearing at the pages, desperate for more.  For within these pages, the dead rise from their graves to haunt the London Underground, witches whisper their incantations to the wind, a sisterhood of bitten necks hunts fog-drenched alleyways lit only by gaslight, and only one thing is certain:  that dread will follow you until you turn that final page.

And that sinking feeling in the pit of your chest?  That fear that something is following you, watching you, hunting you?  It is not for nothing. Look over your shoulder, dear reader.  Watch behind you.  Listen to the whispers in the darkness.

But know this . . . it is all inevitable.

And there is now a Hardcover Edition as well!

This came late Sunday from Editor Bryce Raffle for a, for all practical purposes, Labor Day revelation, the main that Grimmer & Grimmer Books’ DEADSTEAM (cf. June 29, January 31, et al.) now has an official October 1 release day set.  Hence the new blurb, above, plus an updated cover, in a necessarily truncated holiday post (blame the computer cave’s primitive ways) with more info to come in the next day or so.  And for those who’ve forgotten, my part in this is a tale about fast times in the Victorian English funeral biz, “The Re-Possessed,” originally published in CEMETERY RIOTS (Elysium Press, 2016).
