An Embarrassment of Riches
If you haven’t already, take a look at my two newest books. First, we have the latest in the Death Falcon Zero series.
Jump in and hang on as the Death Falcon and his long-suffering tag team partner Doctor Wonder tangle with this book’s rogue’s gallery of rampaging kaiju and sinister vampires, garage spawned death machines and living sumps.
And for those of you who were fans of the seminal Bill Bitner Newsletter (and who wasn’t, right?) it is now being compiled in print, the first volume of which is now available.
The Bill Bitner Newsletter was a heady and sometimes toxic stew and now the best of it is being collected in several print volumes.
As if that wasn’t enough, keep checking this space as coming soon will be Face Eater, my eighth collection of horror short stories and seventeenth book overall as well as the second volume taken from the Bill Bitner Newsletter, This Heathen Earth.
