My vampires-attack-a-prison novel LIGHTS OUT is now available from Thunderstorm Books.Â Thunderstorm is doing something a little different with this one, releasing it as a signed hardcover limited to 140 copies, but with an affordable cover price of $35.Â It’s a great little package, and I think it’s a step in the right directions, allowing both collectors and casual readers in on the ground floor.
Creatively, LIGHTS OUT is probably my favorite work to date.Â The characters that inhabit the novel are some of the richest, grimiest bastards I’ve ever conceived, but there’s a core of humanity to (most) all of them that makes for some fun, brutal good times.
A little more about the novel…
Burnham State Maximum Security Penitentiary holds the worst criminals humanity has to offer. Murderers, rapists, and others who have preyed upon humanity populate the prison, creating a food chain of violence and fear. Something lives beneath Burnham, however, and after years of waiting, it has been set free.And it is hungry.
Now, those who call Burnham home must band together if they hope to survive. After years of being called monsters, they will face something much worse, and they will know how it feels to be prey.
Cover by the amazing Vincent Chong.
