Hellbound Heart and Scarlet Gospels

Posted by Luke Applebee on October 11, 2014

Attention Clive Barker fans: St. Martin’s Press have announced a release date for the novel that will end the Hellraiser mythology; The Scarlet Gospels is due May of 2015!

This is exciting news considering the original novella that started it all, The Hellbound Heart, was first published in 1986—nearly thirty years ago! There are so many dodgy feature films that abuse the franchise that Clive Barker thought it was time to reclaim his precious story and put an end to the horror icon Pinhead.

The Hellbound Heart is a quick, satisfying read. We learn of a Lament Configuration, which is a puzzle box that when solved summons the Cenobites: an order of sadomasochistic priests, presumably from Hell, who use humans in their experiments of pleasure and pain—mostly pain.

the hellbound heart

The infamous leader of The Order of the Gash has no name other than the physical description: Pinhead. The scarified man/thing has pallid skin and rows upon rows of iron nails poking out of his cranium. Spooky.

The concept is freaky and the story delves into all kinds of themes from greed and devotion to misdirection and delusion. If you’re familiar with Books of Blood then you will be right at home.

The beauty of The Hellbound Heart is that it suggests rather than blatantly explains things as they are. We can make up our own minds as to the true nature of Pinhead and his Cenobite pals. They could be aliens from beyond the stars or they could be fallen angels from the heavens. Perhaps the cenobites are us from the future?

The charm of not knowing makes Pinhead all the more enigmatic. Scary too.

Apparently The Scarlet Gospels will expand on the lore to the point where there will be no ambiguity as to the origins of The Order of the Gash. Next year we will find out whether full disclosure will enhance the canon or weaken the impact of the chilling novella.

St Martin’s Press
Our pal with the pins Scott Bakula as Harry D’Amour

Clive is delighted to announce that St Martin’s Press has acquired world English rights to publish The Scarlet Gospels, his upcoming novel featuring Pinhead and Harry D’Amour.

Featuring iconic characters, Pinhead and Harry D’Amour, in a good versus evil saga that goes straight to Hell, The Scarlet Gospels is Barker’s first novel for adults since 2007.

The Scarlet Gospels takes readers back many years to the early days of two of Barker’s most iconic characters in a battle of good and evil as old as time: The long beleaguered detective Harry D’Amour, investigator of all supernatural, magical, and malevolent crimes faces off against his formidable, and intensely evil rival, Pinhead, the priest of hell. Barker devotees have been waiting for The Scarlet Gospels with bated breath for years, and it’s everything they’ve begged for and more. Bloody, terrifying, and brilliantly complex, fans and newcomers alike will not be disappointed by the epic, visionary tale that is The Scarlet Gospels. Barker’s horror will make your worst nightmares seem like bedtime stories. The Gospels are coming. Are you ready?
St Martin’s has now scheduled a 19 May 2015 publication date as follows:

The Dresden Files: Skin Game by Jim Butcher

Posted by Luke Applebee on September 23, 2014

Skin Game by Jim Butcher is the fifteenth novel in The Dresden Files series—do not fret if you have never read this epic urban contemporary fantasy saga before because each book is written in a way that is very accessible for newcomers. Long term fans will agree that certain recurring location descriptions (McAnally’s Pub) can get a bit tiring.

skingame_lg

Meet Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden. Among other spoiler-ish things, Harry is a private investigator and talented wizard from Chicago. His earlier adventures involved chasing werewolves, fighting vampires and scorching nasty spell slingers.

In due course Harry is caught up in treacherous dealings with the Winter and Summer courts of Faerie—magical beings often referred to as Sidhe—and survives a dangerous entanglement with the Order of the Blackened Denarius—fallen angels that manipulate their human hosts. It is said that the coins the Denarians possess are the ancient currency Judas was awarded when he betrayed Jesus.

Harry is not the man he used to be (or is he?). The narrative is intimate first-person and really accentuates his hardened experience, his gradual and self-imposed distance from close friends and the inevitable changes that come when one is touched by crude, magnificent power.

The Denarians are not a new adversary in The Dresden Files but they are arguably the most intriguing. Whenever these villains reveal themselves you can be sure that their mysterious and cunning leader Nicodemus Archleone will make an appearance. A host to Anduriel, Nicodemus wears a noose around his neck that seems to prolong his unnatural life for he could be older than a millennium.

Whenever these nasty fallen angels stir trouble rest assured that The Knights of the Cross will be there to balance the scales. Entrusted with holy swords purportedly forged from the nails used in the Crucifixion of Christ a Knight of the Cross upholds a sacred mandate: recover the Denarian coins and attempt to save the life of the human host by challenging them to change their ways.

To say any more about the quirky cast of characters would spoil the surprises and the fun contained in Jim Butcher’s texts so go to your local book store and buy this one already.

Alexandria Still Burns: Librarians and the Fight for Knowledge

Posted by Ed Grabianowski on June 18, 2014

kickstarter librarians kyle cassidy

We live in an age undreamt, where information pours forth like rivers into oceans. We need people to help us find the information we need. We need librarians. Kyle Cassidy wants to make sure the world knows this.

Cassidy, a photographer and something of an anthropologist of modern sub-cultures, shot photos and conducted interviews with librarians at the American Librarian Association’s annual convention. He wants to take that idea much farther though. His goal is to document at least 100 librarians, make a short documentary film, and create a traveling gallery that can showcase the importance of librarians’ work, all while dispelling our deeply ingrained stereotypes about librarians themselves.

The project, called Alexandria Still Burns: Librarians and the Fight for Knowledge, is being funded by a Kickstarter, which has already hit its goal and is pushing toward interesting stretch goals. There are a variety of backer levels if you’d like to support this project. The $40 level, which gets you a poster showcasing a bunch of librarians, would look great on any library wall.

I fondly recall those days when I was 10 or 12 or however old I was back then, leaving the library with a teetering stack of books. I mean, truly ridiculous amounts of books. I’d spend the entire evening reading, and I know for sure there were some great librarians who helped young me find all the weird stuff I was into back then, which helped me become the weird person I am today. Thanks librarians!

Photograph & interview 100 librarians to make a touring gallery show & help tell the story of why and how libraries are important.

$7,500 New Stretch Goal: Stock photos that libraries can use.

When I asked librarians how I could help, many pointed me to the sad state of available stock images, including this list of horrifying images of “women reading”:

I’d love the opportunity to get some librarian models and take a bunch of useful images and then release them into the wild under a creative commons license so that libraries (and book lovers) could use them, royalty free, in creating web pages, brochures, and signs about books.

This gets unlocked at $7,500. Librarians: do you have requests of what would be useful to you? Let me know.

$6,000 New Stretch Goal: Documentary Video! – Goal Met!

If we can get to $6,000 I can afford to bring a videographer with me and shoot a short documentary about why libraries are important. I think this will go a long way to getting the message out to people and get them thinking about why libraries matter. Backer update coming soon.

In February of 2014 did a photo essay called “This is what a librarian looks like” which was published by Slate Magazine and instantly went viral, rapidly becoming the most popular photo essay they’d ever run. That project consisted of thirty portraits and interviews with librarians on the challenges they faced and the role libraries play in a world where many people have reliable Internet connections and amazon prime accounts.

I realize that the story is incomplete and I want to go to the ALA’s big conference this summer in Las Vegas and try and do at least a hundred portraits and interviews to get a bigger, broader, picture (so to speak) of what libraries and librarians are doing today.

Ultimately I’d like to see this come out as a book, but more immediately I want to create a touring gallery show that can be easily hung and shipped for libraries, galleries, coffee shops and offices and make it available for libraries to show, for free, to help tell the story. Because ultimately this isn’t really at all about what a librarians looks like, it’s about knowledge, access, and civilization.

Book 1 Synopsis:
In Ex-Heroes it’s zombies versus superheroes—a face-off we’ve never seen before—complete with a cast of fresh, interestingly flawed new heroes that will appeal to even the most jaded comic book fans and horror junkies. Los Angeles has been devastated by the zombie apocalypse, devoid of human life—except for one last stronghold, the film-studio-turned-fortress known as the "Mount."

Protecting the city’s last survivors who are huddled within the walls of the Mount are the superheroes Stealth, Gorgon, Regenerator, Cerberus, Zzzap, and The Mighty Dragon. Terrified by the overwhelming responsibility of protecting what may be the last members of the human race and scarred by the horrors they’ve endured, the heroes struggle to hold back the zombie hordes, keep the Mount’s inhabitants alive, and be the symbols of hope the survivors so desperately need. But the heroes are about to learn that the zombies are the least of the threats they now face. Former heroes, their psyches and powers hideously twisted, lurk in the city’s ruins... and just a few miles away from the Mount’s walls waits an enemy with the most terrifying ability imaginable.

Clines, who worked in the film and television industry for fifteen years, has crafted a summer blockbuster in book form, delivering remarkably cinematic action scenes, innovative new heroes and powers, masterful thriller plotting, and character relationships that will engross any reader looking for smart, genuinely page-turning adventure fiction.

Peter Clines’ Ex-Patriots Hitting Bookstores April 23rd

Posted by The Woman In Black on April 16, 2013

Peter Clines' Ex-Patriots Hitting Bookstores April 23rdRemember back in February when we talked about Peter Clines' Ex-Heroes novel about zombies versus superheroes? Well, the sequel, Ex-Patriots, is coming next week, and we have all the details you need right here.

From the Press Release:
Originally published by a small, print-on-demand press without any publicity or marketing support and almost no physical distribution, Peter Clines’s fantastic debut, Ex-Heroes, still managed to draw an incredible cult following and had genre fans all over the blogosphere raving when Broadway released the paperback in February. Now, Broadway is thrilled to introduce the second in Clines’s sci-fi, thriller, and horror fiction mashup series, Ex-Patriots (Broadway; on sale April 23, 2013; $14.00).

Featuring the same cast of brilliant original superheroes (including Zzzap, able to transform into white-hot energy, power a small city, and transmit messages directly to phones and radio, among his other talents), expert thriller plotting, cinematic action scenes, and tons of fun geek and pop-culture references (and set in L.A., where a number of celebrities make rather humorous cameos as zombies), Ex-Patriots is one of those rare sequels that is even more gripping than the first and is sure to establish Clines as one to watch for by fans of such hits as Watchmen, World War Z, and Ready Player One.

In Ex-Patriots, it’s been two years since the plague of ex-humans decimated mankind. Since then, the superhero called St. George, together with fellow heroes Cerberus, Zzzap, and Stealth, have protected the people of Los Angeles at their film-studio-turned-fortress, the Mount. But the fight is getting harder every day—and the heroes are wondering how much longer they can hold out. Then hope arrives in the form of a surviving U.S. Army battalion, and not just any battalion. The men and women of the Army’s Project Krypton survived the outbreak because they are super-soldiers, created before mankind’s fall to be better, stronger, and faster than normal humans—and their secure base in Arizona beckons as a much-needed refuge for the beleaguered heroes and their charges. But there is a secret at the heart of Project Krypton, and those behind it wield an awesome and terrifying power.

With the same wry wit and light touch that bedazzled readers of Ex-Heroes, Ex-Patriots features great new characters, cool new threats, and jaw-dropping plot twists that will amaze even the most well-versed in the adventure genre.

Pre-order your copy of Ex-Patriots below, and look for the next installment in the series, Ex-Communication, in July.
