An Oktober Surprise

The good folks at Cemetery Dance have just announced a new novella project from yours truly. It's called Oktober Shadows, and you can check out ordering info and details about the project right here. But a word of warning -- if this sounds like a book you might be interested in, don't wait to check it out. CD will only be accepting orders for the limited and lettered editions of Oktober Shadows for the next four days, with orders cutting off on Monday, November 1st. That means the print-run will be determined by the number of copies ordered -- so after Monday, that's it.

A little more about the book:

A lone man takes a wrong turn into another world... one with cobbled streets lit by Jack o' Lanterns, where all cats are black and monsters haunt the endless night. Werewolves prowl beneath a moon that is always full, and vampires feast in forgotten catacombs. Patchwork creatures stalk twisted forests where black roots dig into blacker soil.

This is Oktober, a dead land ruled by dead things. But Oktober has never seen a man like the soldier who has just cut a path through a river of poisonous fog. He's coming with a shotgun in his hands and a blood-stained Bowie knife strapped to his belt. Things are about to change in this darkest of worlds... and they will change forever.

Needless to say, I'm very excited about this project, and hope you will be, too. Great to taking another dance in the cemetery... and Happy Halloween!
