Our newest offering, just released December 15: Nocturnes in Purgatory by Joseph Armstead. A sequel to Krymsin Nocturnes (2010), Nocturnes in Purgatory continues the adventures of Montgomery Quinn, a millennia-old “metahuman” who has battled vampires and evil magic since pre-history. In Armstead’s vivid alternate universe, vampires are “Homo Draconis,” humanoid beings who evolved in the shadow of Homo Sapiens and now exist as a secret underground, under force of treaties with the United States government. In this new story, Quinn and his allies–including “blood-witch” Cold Janey and semi-ghost Patricia Silver–attempt to prevent the vampires of Borrego Bay and a society of serial killers from getting, and using, a sinister artifact connected to powers that pre-date humanity. Combining the best of Robert Ludlum or Tom Clancy and H.P. Lovecraft, Armstead’s books are just what you want if you like your vampires evil and your thrillers richly detailed and horrific.

In August we released Dawn Prough’s City of Promise, an unusual vampire/science-fiction combination. In the year 2063, the only safe haven on earth for vampires is the independent metropolis of Gideon, built and governed by scientists. It floats in the ocean over the Atlantic Ridge, outside the territory of any nation, and offers vampires menial jobs and a “work for blood” program. As a diver cleaning the city’s underwater infrastructure, vampire Misty Sauval encounters a body…and a short time later, the body’s fiance, who has been brutalized by a crime boss who kidnapped his baby. Misty is drawn into Gideon’s growing criminal underworld as she attempts to help this stranger avenge his loss and recover his child.
No matter how you like your vampires, we’re sure to have something you’ll love!
