Long overdue update... March 27, 2012
A book is brewing. More info coming soon... Sinister Landscapes going out of print February 2, 2011
We'd like to confirm the rumors that Sinister Landscapes, the Gothic anthology edited by Alan Draven in 2008, is going out of print in the days to come. We were considering putting Creeping Shadows out of print as well, but since all three authors featured in that collection (Alan Draven, Brandon Ford, and Jessica Lynne Gardner) will each have a book released this summer through Black Bed Sheet Books, we decided to keep the book in print for at least another year.
So hurry up and pick up a copy of Sinister Landscapes before it disappears forever. The book was a number one Amazon bestseller in the summer of 2008 and received glowing reviews. You can get a copy here. And if you're curious about checking out Creeping Shadows, the novella collection about monsters published in 2009, you can get a copy here. And if you haven't already bought your copy of Alan Draven's short story/novella collection published last year, The Bitternest Chronicles, you can do so here.
