APOCRYPHA by Brian Keene

A true must-have for any Brian Keene collector, APOCRYPHA goes deep inside the author’s vaults and archives, revealing for the first time anywhere a plethora of rare and never-before-published material, including rare stories, excerpts from early and unpublished novels, alternate chapters and excised material from published novels, early journalism, material from cancelled projects, and much more. There’s even a section collecting formative writing from Keene’s early teenage years. Be it the original, unpublished ending to THE RISING or his pitch for the TERMINATOR series, this book is a gold-mine of rarities and oddities sure to satisfy even the most hardcore Brian Keene fan. This book will never be reprinted, so don’t miss your chance to peek inside the vault before the doors close forever!

KING OF THE BASTARDS by Brian Keene & Steven Shrewsbury

Extreme horror meets extreme sword & sorcery!

Rogan has been many things in his life as an adventurer — a barbarian, a thief, a buccaneer, a rogue, a lover, a reaver, and most recently, a king. Now, this prehistoric bane of wizards and tyrants finds himself without a kingdom, lost in a terrifying new world, and fighting for his life against pirates, zombies, mutants, and the demonic entity known as Meeble. And even if he defeats his foes, Rogan must still find a way to return home, regain his throne, save his loved ones, and remind everyone why he’s the KING OF THE BASTARDS.

HAG by Jonathan Goodrich (Introduction by Laird Barron)

All David wanted was to rest and get better. He moved from Vermont to Boston to beat his cancer. Even before the boxes are unpacked, he and his best friend Sam notice an eerie presence in his new apartment building. The emaciated haunt is a roiling storm of fury with black iron claws and jagged metal teeth. She attacks David without reason or pity, and just when he thinks he knows her limits, she tears through them.

HAG is a dark, brooding novel set in a blighted personal landscape. A story of deathless rage and enduring hatred.

  1. First time Malestrom orderer and I couldn’t be more excited between this and The Black Book. Can’t wait for them to make the long journey to Australia!

  2. Brian, my name is Michelle. I am steven Scanzellos wife. I don’t know if you remember him. We attended the book signing in York, pa a couple times w/ yourself, Kelly Owen & Bob ford. And forgive me-I can’t remember everyone’s names. I know he loved your books & thought you were a great guy! There is no easy way to say this, but steve passed away on oct. 30th of a brain aneurysm. He was only 39 years old. I know you have a lot of fans, so if you don’t remember him…I understand. Just thought I would let you know. I had no idea where to post this info! Sorry if this was an inappropriate place.

    1. Awww, hell. I’m so sorry, Michelle. I do remember Steve very well. I’m really sorry to hear this. Is there a place donations can be made in his name? If so, I’d like to. 🙁

  3. Steve was able to donate his right & left kidneys to men in their forties, He also donated his liver to a man in his fifties. This was able to be accomplished through the Gift of Life program. I think that says what kind of person steve was! Thank you for wanting to donate in his name. Unfortunately, many families do not donate. I wonder if it is awareness or the stress of the situation. I just know that it was the right thing to do-THREE LIVES IN ONE DAY!!! THANK YOU for caring!

  4. O no! I have them all and I missed this one. I literally want to cry. I acutally might. I can not believe I missed it!
