Shadow Atlas: Dark Landscapes of the Americas is now available and this book is incredible… the loveliest book I’ve even been published in. Chupacabra approves everything about this book. I’ll be showing it off and reading my poem this Saturday during Cake & Hyperbull… and there will be a giveaways (but not of Shadow Atlas yet).

Truly a work of art, congratulations to the Hex publishing team for an extraordinary job. Reviews are starting to come in, and the praise is glowing. Here are just a few gems:

“Dead serious in its horror, yet delightful and inviting in its design and conceit, Shadow Atlas is a rare, beguiling treat, a collective fantasy with teeth, vision, and grounded in urgent, ancient truths.” – BookLife Reviews (BookLife section of Publishers Weekly)

“Think The DaVinci Code or Indiana Jones, but with more literary force, as it comments on mortals, immortals, and the intersection of worlds which holds them.” – Midwest Book Reviews

“A host of sublime writers and settings create an entertainingly macabre collection.”– Kirkus Reviews
