Announcing a new Jim Butcher Dresden Files Collection!

Working for Bigfoot by Jim Butcher

We've just added an original Jim Butcher title to this year's schedule, the themed short story collection, Working for Bigfoot. If you need a Dresden Files fix between novels, look no further.

About the Book:

Chicago wizard for hire Harry Dresden is used to mysterious clients with long hair and legs up to here. But when it turns out the long hair covers every square inch of his latest client’s body, and the legs contribute to a nine-foot height, even the redoubtable detective realizes he’s treading new ground. Strength of a River in His Shoulders is one of the legendary forest people, a Bigfoot, and he has a problem that only Harry can solve. His son Irwin is a scion, the child of a supernatural creature and a human. He’s a good kid, but the extraordinary strength of his magical aura has a way of attracting trouble.

In the three novellas that make up Working For Bigfoot, collected together for the first time here, readers encounter Dresden at different points in his storied career, and in Irwin’s life. As a middle-schooler, in “B is For Bigfoot,” Irwin attracts the unwelcome attention of a pair of bullying brothers who are more than they seem, and when Harry steps in, it turns out they have a mystical guardian of their own. At a fancy private high school in “I Was a Teenage Bigfoot,” Harry is called in when Irwin grows ill for the first time, and it’s not just a case of mono. Finally, Irwin is all grown up and has a grown-up’s typical problems as a freshman in college in “Bigfoot on Campus,” or would have if typical included vampires.

New York Times bestseller Jim Butcher explores the responsibilities of fatherhood and the difficulties of growing up with the elements Dresden Files fans crave—detection, adventure, humor, and magic.

Announcing FENDER LIZARDS, a new novel by Joe R. Lansdale

Fender Lizards by Joe R. Lansdale

Coming this November!

The unmistakable accent of the Piney Woods of East Texas rolls from the pages of Fender Lizards, Joe R. Lansdale’s tale of the life and love and work of one Dot Sherman, who delivers on her promise that her story is “the real thing from beginning to end.”

Dot waitresses on roller skates at the Dairy Bob, doesn’t care for smoking at least partly on account of her dad having never returned from a cigarette run, and carries on the family tradition of philosophizing. Life hasn’t done her any favors in her seventeen years so far. But if there was ever a heroine built for turning things upside down and seeing what shakes out, it’s Dot. Determined to find out who she is and why she’s the way she is, an opportunity presents itself when her heretofore-unknown uncle suddenly moves his camper into the front yard.

As in his classic novels The Bottoms and The Magic Wagon, multiple-award-winning Lansdale instills place with character and character with place. Here is an overlooked world and a cast of real folks that prove unforgettable, all rendered in one of American fiction’s most authentic voices.

Trade: Fully cloth bound hardcover edition: $40

Limited: 400 signed numbered copies, bound in leather, with full color illustrations by Jon Foster, plus two original short stories about a young Hap Collins: $60

Stephen King’s THINNER Coming Soon

Thinner by Stephen King

PS Publishing's signed (facsimile) edition of Stephen King's Thinner is in our warehouse, and just waiting for its turn at the top of the shipping queue, which looks to be a few weeks away. Thinner marks another nifty PS production, with an illustrated slipcase, dust jacket, and art by both Les Edwards and Edward Miller

About the Book:

Hardnosed lawyer Billy Halleck carries a few pounds more than he should but, hey, he’s happy, content, successful and, well, let’s say ‘highly sexually charged.’ It’s this latter area that’s the cause of all that’s to befall him, when his wife, Heidi distracts him while he’s driving and causes Billy to run down a woman who was part of a group of traveling Gypsies.

The case is kicked out of court (thanks to the judge being a personal friend of Billy) and everyone is happy. Well, everyone, that is, except for the dead woman’s father who’s less than impressed with American justice.

“Thinner,” he whispers in Billy’s ear as he strokes Halleck’s face. And, hoo boy, it’s a retribution that truly takes the cake as, from that very moment onwards, Billy Halleck discovers the diet of the gods. No matter what he puts away, the pounds continue to roll off.

Initially fearing some virulent cancer, Billy is relieved when he gets the all-clear. From then on, he’s happy with his lot: I mean, what’s not to like—clear your plate as many times as you want and you don’t put on an ounce? Hey, come on, right? Except, Billy wonders, how will this condition end? Not well, Billy’s inner voice whispers. Not well at all.

Often overlooked in summaries of King’s works, Thinner is a true tour de force…a riveting page-turner of the highest order.

With all manner of goodies including an Introduction from Johnny Mains, colour artwork from both Les Edwards and Edward Miller (Les’s ‘dark half’ if truth be told)—and with Johnny and Les signing all copies—the slipcased state will be a joy to behold.

Limited: 974 numbered copies, signed by the artists and author of the introduction: $125

 

Cherie Priest’s JACARANDA ships this week

Jacaranda by Cherie Priest

Later this week, we'll be doing the bubble bag and mailer routine for Cherie Priest's novella, Jacaranda. This looks like her last foray into her Clockwork Century world for some time (if not forever), and we already have more distributor orders for the trade hardcover than we can fill, so ordering now might be a good idea.

Along the way, Jacaranda has picked up a good deal of praise:

From Publishers Weekly:

This gripping postscript to Priest’s Clockwork Century series (which officially concluded with Fiddlehead) takes readers to the titular Galveston, Tex., haunted hotel, in an alternate 1895 seasoned with ghosts and gears. Father Rios is a former gunslinger cursed with second sight and a dark past. When Sister Eileen contacts him about the dozens who have died in the hotel, he visits ahead of an impending hurricane and soon witnesses the horrors firsthand. Rios is a great protagonist, full of conflicts and doubts, and he drives the tale well. While the story stands on its own, it also provides some melancholy closure for fans of Priest’s earlier books.

From Locus:

In Jacaranda, set in Cherie Priest’s alternate version of late 1800s America—the one she set up in Boneshaker and has dipped back into successfully several times since—there is a hotel on Galveston Island that seems to be murdering its guests. What then unspools is a locked room horror mystery that has a little bit of The Shining and a little more Tarantino mixed in… Those who love a short spook or are Clockwork Century completists (or both, which might be a pretty big intersection on the Venn diagram) will love what Priest has done here.

From RT Book Reviews:

...The characters here are vivid and interesting enough that hopefully this particular adventure isn't the last we hear of them, or of the survivors at least.

From October Country:

What you get…is a steady, insistent pulse-beat of dread. Priest does a good job of keeping the tension tight and the outcome in doubt, right up to the very end.

From SanFrancisco Book Review:

While other novels in Priest’s Clockwork Century series have dabbled in supernatural elements, Jacaranda is the first to go full bore and embrace the supernatural. It leaves behind much of the steampunk and pseudoscientific trappings that characterize the series, offering a cursed hotel and perils less tangible than sap-poisoned rotters and Civil War profiteers… A welcome new wrinkle in an established series, Jacaranda shows there’s plenty of life left in the Clockwork Century universe.

 

New Mira Grant sent to the printer

Rolling in the Deep by Mira Grant

We've reviewed the final files, put a tie on them, and sent Mira Grant's Rolling in the Deep, to the printer. Along the way, the deep sea horror novella picked up another review, this one from Library Journal:

A well-crafted little monster tale from Seanan McGuire (author of the popular ‘October Daye’ urban fantasy series as well as horror/sf under the Grant pen name), this novella is a treat for her fans…

This review dovetails nicely with the earlier one from Publishers Weekly:

In this slim, grim tale of aquatic horror, Grant (Symbiont) unveils the tragic last voyage of the SS Atargatis, hired by the Imagine Network to help film a fake documentary on mermaids while also performing deep-sea scientific studies… In true horror fashion, Grant introduces a large cast of colorful personalities, giving many of them brief chances to shine, before unleashing the horrors of the deep upon them.

Limited: 1000 signed numbered hardcover copies: $40
