Billy Summers by Stephen King: A Brand New Novel About A Killer For Hire!

Billy Summers
by Stephen King

A Brand New Novel About A Killer For Hire!

Stephen King’s JUST ANNOUNCED new novel is called Billy Summers, and it concerns a killer for hire who is the best in the business, but he’ll do the job only if the target is a truly bad guy. And now Billy wants out. But first, there is one last hit…

Billy is among the best snipers in the world, a decorated Iraq war vet, a Houdini when it comes to vanishing after the job is done. So what could possibly go wrong?

How about everything.

Part war story, part love letter to small town America and the people who live there, Billy Summers features one of the most compelling and surprising duos in Stephen King fiction, who set out to avenge the crimes of an extraordinarily evil man. It’s about love, luck, fate, and a complex hero with one last shot at redemption.

Things I Didn’t Know My Father Knew: The Best Short Stories of Peter Crowther

We’re pleased to announce we’ll be publishing Things I Didn’t Know My Father Knew: The Best Short Stories of Peter Crowther later this year, and with the low print run and Pete’s devoted following, we don’t expect this one to last long at all!

About the Book:
The newest collection by acclaimed British horror master Peter Crowther, these stories are the very best of his incredible short works of horror and suspense:

  • Things I Didn’t Know My Father Knew: An unusual visitor rolls into town one day under cover of a thick fog . . . just to touch base with someone he maybe once knew.
  • All We Know of Heaven: A small boy finds the answer to his and his father’s dilemma in the legend of King Arthur and his mystical sword, Excalibur.
  • Tomorrow Eyes: A Runyonesque gambler discovers the strangest set of dice you ever saw being rolled on a cloth.
  • Some Burial Place, Vast and Dry: The lonely survivor of a long-ago space mission receives a visit from a hauntingly familiar UFO.
  • The Musician of Bremen, GA: Cal Williston, who can play the best version of ‘Moonlight In Vermont’ since Chet Baker teamed up with Gerry Mulligan.
  • Boxing Day: A small-town crook about to fall under the spell of London rediscovers his wife.
  • Keepsakes: PI. Koko Tate pays his mom a visit on Mother’s Day.
  • Too Short A Death: A modern-day poet meets the long-deceased Weldon Kees’s greatest literary creation.
  • Eater: The cops at an off-the-beaten-track late-night precinct house have got more than they bargained for in one of the cells.
  • Sitting Pretty: An armchair fashioned out of the wood from the original cross provides a comfort of sorts down the ages.
  • Dark Times: Two old men tamper with the dark arts and open a gateway that threatens the destructions of the world.
  • Jewels in the Dust: A couple jaded with their life together are visited by their collective histories.
  • And, in Songs of Leaving, the imminent impact of a county-sized piece of space debris brings to the remnants of humanity a multitude of old friends to witness the fall of mankind.

Two New Reviews for The Girl Who Builds Monsters!

The reviews for The Girl Who Builds Monsters by Brian James Freeman and Vincent Chong have been really terrific, but we just had to share these two that really sum up how we feel about this book:

“There is so much to love in this new children’s book from Brian James Freeman and Vincent Chong. The illustrations are simple and understated, yet explode on the page. The story is equally simple and understated, yet contains a deep moral about inclusion and acceptance. Put the two together, and the result is a book destined to be named a classic… what a gorgeous hardcover it is — and one sure to retain the durability that will be needed through voluminous readings.”
Mountain Times

“For me, one of the things that makes this an absolutely outstanding book and a choice I would recommend for anyone working with elementary aged children is that it is one of the few picture books out there that depict disability in a positive and respectful way. Too often picture books about disabled people are educational texts describing a child’s disability for abled peers, and in the few fictional picture books, disabled people are rarely depicted as multifaceted individuals with positive characteristics. In fiction in general, disabled people are usually presented stereotypically, as either someone to feel sorry for (like Beth in Little Women), someone inspirational (think Auggie from Wonder), someone with ‘magical’ abilities (Charles Xavier of the X-Men), or a villain. In horror in particular, villainy is frequently signified by disfigurement or masking (some of the classics in horror fiction include the Phantom of the Opera, the Invisible Man, and Dorian Gray).  Brian James Freeman has done a great job at subverting the trope of disability and disfigurement as villainous and monstrous, and celebrating imperfection, and it’s really exciting to see this. Highly recommended for grades K+.”

Review: The Witch and the Beast by Kousuke Satake

cover of the witch and the beastThe Witch and the Beast by Kousuke Satake
Kodansha Comics (October 27, 2020)
192 pages; $12.99 paperback, $9.99 e-book
Reviewed by Danica Davidson

The Witch and the Beast opens with a question: “Do you know how to break a witch’s curse?” It gives two answers: “Method 1: A loving kiss from a prince on a white horse. Method 2: Hope the wrathful witch has a change of heart.”

But the manga is quick to assure us that these methods are nearly impossible to work out.Continue Reading
