The Dwyer Trilogy
by Ed Gorman

About the Book:
"Nobody today has Gorman's range, economy, ear for dialogue, and strange skill for taking the reader into his confidence to whisper his curious tales."Rocky Mountain News

Ever since they appeared many years ago, The Autumn Dead and A Cry of Shadows have long been recognized as two of Ed Gorman's most unique and powerful early novels.

Long out-of-print, Cemetery Dance Publications is proud to make these books available again, for the first time in a single permanent volume. Plus, as a special bonus, the last Dwyer story — an original entitled "Eye of the Beholder" — exclusive to this volume!

Here you'll learn why Kirkus calls Gorman "one of the most original crime writers around" and why The Oxford Book of Crime Stories notes that Gorman's "novels and short stories provide fresh ideas, characters and approaches."

Welcome to the world of Jack Dwyer, one of the most important figures in contemporary dark suspense.


Ed GormanEd Gorman has been an astonishingly prolific writer since he turned full-time in 1984 after 20 years in advertising. Since then he has produced two to three books a year, several pseudonymously, written over a hundred short stories, edited many anthologies, and co-founded and edited the news magazine of the Mystery field, Mystery Scene.

He has written in practically every genre imaginable, from suspense and mysteries to science fiction and horror. If that weren't enough, he is also a frequent editor, often collaborating with his long-time friend, award-winning anthologist Martin H. Greenberg.

He has been dubbed the “Poet of Dark Suspense” and much of his work haunts that ill-defined land between horror and mystery where the emphasis is as much on fear and shock as it is on crime and detection. Even his western fiction trespasses into this darkly psychological territory.

Gorman has also been called "one of suspense fiction's best storytellers" by Ellery Queen, and "one of the most original voices in today's crime fiction" by the San Diego Union.

His work has appeared in magazines as various as Redbook, Ellery Queen, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, and Poetry Today. He is also the founder, along with Robert J. Randisi, of Mystery Scene magazine.
