Bad Moon Books has announced two new titles that are available for pre-order. First up is Herding Ravens by Christopher Conlon; the second one his Vector Borne by Michael McBride.
Herding Ravens by Christopher Conlon – A briefcase containing nothing but papers inexplicably starts to drip blood. A man is visited in the middle of the night by the Chairman of the Board of Insomnia. A young girl discovers that she can read minds-but only the minds of the dead. Herding Ravens brings together some two dozen of Christopher Conlon’s “bon-bons”-tasty samples of flash fiction in which anything can happen, and usually does. Inspired by everything from Edgar Allan Poe to Franz Kafka, from Charles Addams to The Twilight Zone, these surreal fantasies operate with, as the author writes, “no rules or logic, or with dream logic, or the logic of the grave.” By turns haunting and hilarious, Herding Ravens is a walk on the weird side you won’t soon forget.

Vector Borne by Michael McBride – Three powerful empires-the Anasazi, the Champa, the Maya-abandoned flourishing societies at the height of their prowess, leaving behind stunning primitive meccas shrouded by the mystery of their sudden disappearance. Three empires on three different continents from three distinct historical eras … and three clues that tie them all together.
Violent geothermal upheaval.
Evidence of cannibalism.
And the mutated remains unearthed from their ruins.
A team of scientists unlocks the secret and searches for proof in the most unstable geological region on the planet … at the bottom of the sea in the Pacific Ring of Fire. When a massive earthquake rocks Oceania, generating a tsunami that decimates the surrounding islands and sinks the research vessel, a rescue team is dispatched … only to find that the majority of the crew had been slaughtered prior to the ship’s foundering.
The survivors find themselves stranded in the middle of nowhere on an island that’s being ripped apart from the inside out, desperately trying to reach the lone settlement on the far side.
But they aren’t alone.
Something is hunting them from the jungle, something borne of the fire at the Earth’s core … the same something that caused the demise of the Anasazi, the Champa, and the Maya.
