That subject probably means nothing to all of you, but trust me, it's very cool news! Haha.

The official announcement...

Shock Totem Publications is pleased to announce our first non-magazine release. On May 1, 2012, we will re-release in paperback James Newman’s second novel and ode to 1980s horror, The Wicked.

Originally published in 2007 in limited edition hardcover, The Wicked has been revised by the author, expanded with a new foreword by Mark Allan Gunnells, a new afterword by the author, and brilliant new artwork and illustrations by Jesse David Young (with additional cover layout by Yannick Bouchard). Also included is a brand new, exclusive tie-in short story written specifically for this release.

James Newman is the author of the critically-acclaimed Midnight Rain and Animosity, the short-story collection People Are Strange, and the novellas The Forum, Revenge Flick! and Olden.

And we’re extremely proud to officially welcome him into the Shock Totem family!

Praise for The Wicked

The Wicked is a good old-fashioned, unabashed Horror novel. James Newman remembers when horror used to be fun, and he’s recaptured it here in all of its gory glory. A terrifying page-turner in the tradition of Graham Masterton, J.N. Williamson, and Richard Laymon. WICKEDly good reading from of horror’s new heirs!”

Brian Keene
Author of The Rising, City of the Dead and Ghoul

“Demons, depravity and despair, oh my! Reminiscent of the best of 80’s horror and Bentley Little at his most grotesque and unrelenting, The Wicked is the kind of horror we don’t see enough of anymore. This is one wild and bloody ride, and in the capable hands of James Newman, it’s one worth taking.”

Kealan Patrick Burke
Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Turtle Boy and Kin

The Wicked will be released in paperback and e-book formats. More details will follow closer to release. If you have any questions, please let us know.

Thanks, Kurt.

It's a fun book. Totally 80s cheesy horror, you know. Over the top, gory, just a fun read.

After a slight delay, The Wicked is now available. The delay was due to the fake price sticker on the back. The printer didn't like another bar code on the cover, even though it was fake. So we had to change that. You can see them both here and here.

Anyway, here is the official announcement:

Shock Totem Publications is pleased to announce that our first non-magazine release, James Newman's fantastic ode to 1980s horror, The Wicked, is now available for purchase.

As previously noted, The Wicked has been revised by the author, expanded with a new foreword by Mark Allan Gunnells, a new afterword by the author, and brilliant new artwork and illustrations by Jesse David Young (with additional cover layout by Yannick Bouchard). Also included is a brand new, exclusive tie-in short story written specifically for this release.

The book is currently available through our website and Amazon.com as a trade paperback for $14.99 and as an e-book for $4.99. We will keep you updated as it becomes more widely available through other retailers in the coming days and weeks.

A lot of hard work went into this release. We think you'll dig it very much.

If you have any questions, please let us know. Interested reviewers contact us at general@shocktotem.com.

The Crow's Caw has put up a great review of The Wicked. You can read it here.

There is also a very insightful essay by James, plus they're giving away two copies of The Wicked and one copy of James's out-of-print collection, People Are Strange. Check it out! =)
