“Disturbingly lovely…The Resurrectionist is itself a cabinet of curiosities, stitching history and mythology and sideshow into an altogether different creature. Deliciously macabre and beautifully grotesque.”—Erin Morgenstern, author of The Night Circus
One-third fictional biography, two-thirds coffee-table art book, and one hundred percent bizarre — The Resurrectionist pairs dazzling black-and-white anatomical drawings with a bizarre fantasy narrative set in late-19th-century Philadelphia.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls
“Mixing taught horror-movie action with neo-Austen meditation on identity, society, and romance, this happy sacrilege is sure to please fans of Grahame-Smith's original mash-up.”—Publishers Weekly
Four years before the events of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the Bennet sisters are enjoying a peaceful life in the English countryside until a funeral at the local parish goes strangely and horribly awry. Suddenly, corpses are springing from the soft earth, and only one family can stop them. As the bodies pile up, Elizabeth Bennet grows from a naive, young teenager into a savage slayer of the undead. Along the way, two men vie for her affections: Master Hawksworth is the powerful warrior who trains her to kill, while thoughtful Dr. Keckilpenny seeks to conquer the dead through science, not strength.
Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge
“Features an appealingly sharp-yet-vulnerable heroine in recent college grad Bailey Chen, an effortlessly inclusive cast of fun supporting characters, and plenty of awesome snark. But as with the best humorous fantasies, the snark never gets in the way of the book’s big, earnest heart, which it wears proudly on its (occasionally tipsy) sleeve.”—Sarah Kuhn, author of Heroine Complex
College grad Bailey Chen has a few demons: no job, no parental support, and a rocky relationship with Zane, the only friend who's around when she moves back home. But when Zane introduces Bailey to his cadre of monster-fighting bartenders, her demons get a lot more literal. Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge is a sharp and funny urban fantasy for "new adults" about a secret society of bartenders who fight monsters with alcohol fueled magic.
The Last Policeman
“Winters’s apocalyptic detective story contains an earth-shattering element of science fiction that lifts it beyond a typical procedural.”—New York Times Book Review
With the deadly impact of asteroid 2011GV1 only months away, people all over the world are walking off the job — but not Hank Palace. He’s investigating a death by hanging in a city that sees a dozen suicides every week—except this one feels suspicious, and Palace is the only cop who cares.
