THE COLLECTORS’ BOOK OF VIRGIL FINLAY

"The art of Virgil Finlay joins together in a wonderful discourse the graphic designs of the modern era with the emotional narratives reminiscent of the great classical works of the Western World. Finlay’s dizzying compositions and incredible draftsmanship recall the dense compositions of Renaissance artists Hieronymus Bosch and Albrecht Durer, while at the same time embracing the modern aesthetics of abstraction. His black and white images are ground breaking, unforgettable, and reflective of a genius at play in the world of art."
— Donato Giancola

Mike Baron's
                                BANSHEES
MIKE BARON's BANSHEES

 

American Fantasy Press is proud to announce BANSHEES a new novel by Mike Baron. Famous for his ground-breaking Eisner and Inkpot award-winning comic series Nexus, Baron is currently the author of the thrillers Whack Job, Helmet Head, Biker, and Skorpio.

Mike has been crafting and perfecting this rock and roll horror extravaganza for almost two years. “I think it’s his best novel, yet,” says editor/publisher Robert Garcia. “It’s a big sprawling story in that Stephen King, Robert McCammon bestseller tradition. Mike’s developed quite a cast characters from Russian mobsters to L.A. record producers.  (Don’t know who’s more dangerous.) And he puts almost everyone through the grinder.  It’s exciting, scary, complex and fun. We think you’re going to love it.”

We'll be publishing a trade paperback version and an e-book of BANSHEES later this year. Watch here and Facebook for news.

STALKING THE ZOMBIE
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 a book worthy of your time and money." —John Collins

Mike Baron
MIKE BARON

"It has Mike Baron's name on it, so it is an instant buy for me. I love his work and the man and you will too." —Jim Palmiotti (Whack Job)

"Mike Baron is the master of the wild ride. He takes you to places you never expect to go and even never thought of going. His characters are all colorful, different and his ideas are fresh and entertaining. This is another fun book from a writer to watch. I've followed his comics for many years and now he's delivering novels that will will gain him a whole new following!"
— James Hudnall (Whack Job)

"Mike Baron's Whack Job is pretty freaking brilliant."—James Owen

"I've been a Baron fan from Day One! He delivers raw action in a fast paced story that will keep you turning pages till the pages are done. " — Chuck Dixon (Helmet Head)

"Mike Baron writes like the bastard offspring of James Crumley and Rex Miller, in prose so hardboiled you'll break a tooth. Read it!" — Jeff Mariotte (Helmet Head) Author of Cold Black Hearts

"Helmet Head by Mike Baron is the rare reward you get when you take a writer that's smart and inject him into a genre that needs an I.V....Mike Baron gives action & horror writing the brain power and testosterone that lacks in so many books today. Baron is willing to give you characters that not only have something to say, but something to do as well. I read Helmet Head and expected a good read, what I didn't expect was to scramble to turn the pages at the rate I did. I was bread crumbed into getting to the end of this exciting story and was sad when it ended. Helmet Head is a great read and one that I can highly recommend to fans of the TV shows SUPERNATURAL and THE WALKING DEAD. It's got that kind of character and action that plays out as icing on one tasty cake of reading".
— Beau Smith


"Mike Baron brings his limitless imagination to prose with a fast-moving tale that feels like an action movie captured in type." —Paul Levitz (Whack Job)

"Hard-boiled. Hard-edged. Hard-core. Hard to put down until you get to the last page."
—Charles Saunders, author of Imaro and Damballa. (Biker)
