Weighing in at around 1,200 pages, and with sumptuous cover art by Don Maitz (who has described these images as only ‘rough’ versions!), this special edition will be available very soon, from PS Publishing’s online store.

boomtownNew from Glenn Rolfe comes Boom Town, a novella of alien horror, available on Nook, Kobo and Apple eBooks only

As the ground rumbles below Eckert, Wisconsin, two pre-teens find something bubbling up to the surface. Before long the whispering refrain is already being heard: ‘Take them, bring them, ascend.’ What follows is described as a mixture of Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The Blob. What begins as curiosity will end as living hell for the entire town. This eBook only release for users of Apple eBooks, Nook and Kobo, is released 25 January at the price of just $1.99. Learn more at Glenn Rolfe’s website, here.
