Maelstrom is my collectible hardcover imprint through Thunderstorm Books. Each three-book set features a novel length work by me, a novella by me, and a novel length work by someone else I’ve hand-picked and think you’ll enjoy. The first set contained A Gathering of Crows, The Rising: Deliverance, and Kelli Owen’s debut novel Six Days. For full details on Maelstrom and what we hope to achieve with it, click here. If you are new to my work, I would urge you to read that. And if you are one of those people who take it personally and holler at me because you don’t like these pricey limited editions, then might I suggest you pre-order The Damned Highway, which is a brand-new novel and will be in stores this July as an affordable trade paperback?
For everyone else, this is your official warning that pre-orders for the second Maelstrom set are coming June 19th. If you want in, save your money now. Details:
Everyone has a darkest hour. For the employees of Big Bill’s Home Electronics, it comes when a crazed gunman barges into their store and opens fire. For Evan Fisher, it manifests as he tries to protect his family in the aftermath of a natural disaster. For Ward and Valerie, it is the imaginary friend who creeps through their daughter’s window at night. For Gina, a woman devoted to her husband, it rises with the dead. For the residents of a small Atlantic coastal town, it arrives from the sea with an amphibian croak. And for burned-out horror novelist Brian Keene, it is echoed in the whispers of a ghost.
Thunderstorm Books is proud to present this new collection, featuring over 80,000 words of short fiction and novellas, including “Halves”, “The House of Ushers”, “Scratch”, “I Sing A New Psalm”, “The Girl on the Glider” and many more, as well as extensive story notes. And in keeping with Maelstrom’s exclusivity promise, this will be the only edition of this book ever printed, thus making it a true collectible.
ALONE by Brian Keene
When Daniel Miller wakes up one morning, something has gone terribly wrong. The power is out. The phones are dead. The house is silent. The street is shrouded in fog. Both his partner and their adopted daughter are missing. So are their neighbors. And so is everyone else in the world. Daniel Miller is the last person left on Earth.
…or is he?
Thunderstorm Books is proud to present this all-new, original novella of quiet, supernatural horror from Brian Keene.
Welcome to Midnight, City of Night. This is the city tucked between two mountains in such a way the sun never shines here. This is the home to men like Mr. Zero and Uncle Knuckles. This is a place where more roads lead in than out. When Thomas Midnight makes a wrong turn and ends up trapped in the City of Night, he’ll do whatever it takes to get out. But the city’s grip around him tightens, and word has already spread that he’s arrived. A brand-new full length novel from one of the most exciting new voices in dark fantasy.
