Miscellaneous News:

First off, we have a bunch of
PS Publishing news starting with the announcement of “Powers: Secret Histories”, John Berlyne's extensively researched and lavishly produced collection of Tim Powers material.

A book that essentially redefines the term 'bibliography’, “Secret Histories” has been nearly ten years in the making and brings together an astonishing range of Powers ephemera—a huge treat and a remarkable resource for both fans and collectors alike. As well as a complete, illustrated reference of every
Tim Powers book published to date, “Secret Histories” offers an extraordinary insight into the stories behind the stories, collecting together in a single volume Powers material previously seen only in private collections. Here—in print for the very first time—you'll find poetry, drawings, research and plotting notes, novel outlines, early drafts, out-takes and an excerpt from the author's unpublished 1974 novel, “To Serve in Hell”.

Supporting these riches are story notes and commentary by Powers himself as well as articles and essays from collaborators, friends and renowned Powers aficionados including Dean Koontz, Jim Blaylock, China Miéville, Karen Joy Fowler, John Bierer, John Berlyne and William Ashless. “Powers: Secret Histories” is an unprecedented bibliographic tribute celebrating the work of a truly extraordinary writer and will be issued in three different oversized hardcovers, all printed in glorious full colour and all dust-jacketed.

In other news, October 30, 2008—Midnight, marks the launch of “The Forsaken” by horror / fantasy author
G. Wells Taylor at the Official G. Wells Taylor Website and the Official Detective Wildclown Website. To celebrate the release of the second book in The Apocalypse Trilogy, the author is giving away FREE E-book downloads of his popular first book, “When Graveyards Yawn”:

When Graveyards Yawn begins when a dead lawyer hires Detective Wildclown to find his killer. The detective is soon entangled in a battle for control of a secret that offers hope or doom for humanity. Welcome to the World of Change where people have stopped aging, the dead rise from their graves, and it never stops raining…

The long-anticipated sequel, “The Forsaken”, returns readers to the World of Change when a Demon hires an assassin to kill an Angel from a rival gang. It’s not the first time the hit man’s had an employer from Hell, so he checks the fine print before setting bloody quill to parchment. Just one stipulation: he’ll have to make it quick if he wants to avoid the End of the World.

Powerful forces battle for mastery over the coming darkness as The Apocalypse Trilogy continues in this epic series by the creator of the Detective Wildclown case files and the World of Change.

Visit the
Official G. Wells Taylor Website or the Official Detective Wildclown Website for sample chapters and more information.
