Ninja Versus Pirate Featuring Zombies

Fans of Apex and Nightmare rejoice, today we added 30+ titles from ChiZine Publications with books from Tim Pratt, Gemma Files, Nick Kaufmann, and, you know, many more. For instance, check out Imaginarium 2012 which is the first in a series, The Best Canadian Speculative Fiction, and James Marshall wins catchiest title award with Ninja Versus Pirate Featuring Zombies.

Actually, Rick Klaw may win best title with his Tachyon book, The Apes of Wrath, which collects stories from Pat Murphy , the late Steven Utley, Howard Waldrop, Karen Joy Fowler, among others. (Karen has a new novel coming this summer from Penguin Putnam: We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves. Read it and weep—but don’t read the spoiler-y jacket copy!)

Also new today: The Steampunk Megapack, Beneath Ceaseless Skies Issue #113and  The Transcriber by Kristen Witucki.

We added two titles from Australia’s FableCroft, Epilogue and After the Rain, both edited by Tehani Wessely.

I like the sound of Epilogue: “Twelve writers take on the end of the world and go beyond, to what comes next” but I want to recommend (unread as yet!) After the Rain as it has stories from two favorite people, Kathleen Jennings (whose art has graced a number of Small Beer books) and Robert Hoge, whose memoir, Ugly, I am reading right now. It comes out from Hachette Australia in August and it is fabulous. I don’t know that we’ll have it here to sell—hey, you never know—but I’m going to be rec’ing it again and again so you might as well preorder it now!

(Got totally distracted there by Kathleen’s “Dalek of the Pigeons” post.)
