Review in examiner.com
"Living in a magical world can be a blessing and a curse and it delivers delightful dilemmas to the diligent detective. What would you do if the intelligent, magic broom belonging to the arch demon who is your sworn enemy falls in love with you? How do you find a local politician when they die but decide they want to go out for dinner and a burlesque show or two before the funeral? When your sworn enemy decides to hire you, do you take the job? Toss in a magic mirror with an O.C.D./neatness problem, a petulant partner, and an office cat-person with expensive tastes but no long term (SHINY!) memory and you have book worthy of your time and money." John Collins

REVIEWS FOR THE JOHN J. MALLORY NOVELS:
STALKING THE VAMPIRE
Mallory, the quintessential hardboiled, wisecracking P.I. is in his element as he follows lead after lead, tracking down an elusive vampire in a city full of vampires, leprechauns, trolls, dragons, goblins, and magic gone awry. ... It's a past-paced story full of left turns and the occasional loop-the-loop, keeping things moving at a brisk pace....this book is easily the funniest bit of fantasy detective fiction I've read all year.
A curiously satisfying update of Depression-era screwball comedies breezy, rapid-fire repartee that meshes well with both detective and vampire genres.
Whitney Scott, Booklist
"Mallory remains a great character, the classic world-weary knight in trenchcoat armor, with a strong supporting cast...It's clear Resnick is having fun with the characters, setting, and mystery itself. Readers who enjoy a lighthearted caper through familiar-but-not territory will find this a pleasant read. Recommended."
STALKING THE DRAGON
If you havent read those stories before and you can really start anywhere in the series you can expect humorous urban fantasy in a swift moving story that reads like a Marx Brothers script.
Readers with a taste for supernatural whimsy will find much to enjoy here
.The crisp dialogue and imaginative setting will have many fantasy readers wanting to revisit Manhattans magical side.
Resnick has won 5 Hugos (from a record 35 nominations), a Nebula, and other major awards in the USA, France, Japan, Spain, Croatia, and Poland. He's the author of 64 novels, over 250 stories, and 2 screenplays, and the editor of 40 anthologies. His work has been translated into 25 languages.
REVIEWS OF IN CONCERT
by Steve Rasnic & Melanie Tem
American Fantasy Press has secured a limited amount of
Centipede Press's 300 copy edition of the Tem's collection
of collaborative short stories IN CONCERT. This book includes
"The Man on the Ceiling" the short story AFP published as a chapbook to
much acclaim and the WFA, IHG and Stoker awards back in 2000.
These copies seem to be returns, since they aren't shrinkwrapped
and it looks like they have been displayed (Warning: There is shelfware.)
But they are beautiful hardcover copies with place marker ribbons,
color and black & white interior illustrations and one-quarter leather
binding plus dust-jacket (stickered with a $95 price & z-bar).
We're offering these signed-numbered-limited edition books for $60.00.
Starred Review. ....In Concert demonstrates that the Tems can also evoke powerful feelings of sorrow and beauty. The stories will appeal to those who prefer thoughtful, subtle horror over creepy-crawlies and violence, and though the hefty price tag may deter those who have not already discovered the Tems' fiction, their longtime fans will be thrilled.
Their exuberant dual creativity has yielded a smorgasbord of jarringly original ideas that cross genres from horror to sf to mainstream fiction....Tem aficionados will celebrate their rich collaboration, while newcomers to their joint work will enjoy being introduced to two of speculative fiction's most gifted authors.
STEVE RASNIC TEM
His short fiction has been compared to the work of Franz Kafka, Dino Buzzati, Ray Bradbury, and Raymond Carver, but to quote Joe R. Lansdale: "Steve Rasnic Tem is a school of writing unto himself." His 300 plus published pieces have garnered him a British Fantasy Award, and nominations for the World Fantasy and Bram Stoker Awards. (From the Tem website: www.m-s-tem.com)
chronicles of the terrors that haunt families and the amazing resilience of the human spirit have collected a Bram Stoker award, a British Fantasy Award, and praise both here and abroad. Stephen King said of her first novel, Prodigal, "spectacular, far better than anything by new writers in the hardcover field." Dan Simmons declared it "A cry from the very heart of the heart of darkness . . . Melanie Tem may well be the literary successor to Shirley Jackson." (From the Tem website: www.m-s-tem.com)
MONSTERS AND MADMEN is Now
RANDY BROECKER'S MONSTERS
CHANGES IN THE ANNOUNCED BOOK: RANDY BROECKER'S MONSTERS
is now a thin Hardcover Best-Of Volume of Broeckers artwork with
new text by Broecker on what else? monsters. This book has been delayed until 2013.
RANDY BROECKER loves monsters and draws them any chance he gets.
Hell do a bookplate here. A bag for a bookstore there. Even a book
jacket for a book collector. But mostly he illustrates books.
Hes been doing it for thirty years. This is his first book collection.
He gets great joy from his art. He loves to show
you the finished pieces, and point out the details hes added,
chuckling over this little ghouls expression, or the addition
of that tentacle, or how he was able to fit in that character or plot detail.
