THE SHADOW SAGA is a brilliant epic that takes you into the secret world of vampires -- and a secret society sworn to destroy them. Sweeping, sensuous, and shocking, it is a powerful vision of immortality that will hold you in its spell . . . forever.
"Christopher Golden scared the unholy $#!& out of me. Thank god I was reading
with the lights on! WAKING NIGHTMARES is one deliciously terrifying, un-put-down-able
book. Totally, compellingly creepy. (I hate him now and shall have to
kill him because I'll never be able to sleep again.)"
- Kat Richardson, author of the Greywalker novels.
THE GRAVES OF SAINTS, the next installment in The Shadow Saga, will be available on March 14th, 2013. With massive demonic incursions in locations around the world, Octavian should be focused on using his own sorcery to drive the evil out and rebuild our defences. But a renegade vampire named Cortez has murdered the person Octavian loves the most and, even with his friends and allies around him, he is so lost in grief that he can think of nothing but revenge. There are others who can fight the darkness - mages and Shadows, witches and Reapers and vampire samurai - but only the warrior-mage, Peter Octavian, can defeat it - if he will answer the call. Learn more about the series.

Kara Foster thinks the hardest thing about moving to Japan will be fitting in as an outsider. But dark secrets are stirring at her new school. When Kara befriends Sakura, a fellow outsider whose rebellious nature sets her apart from the crowd, she learns that Sakura's sister was the victim of an unsolved murder on school grounds. And before long, terrible things begin to happen.
It starts with nightmares - strange, otherworldly dreams that wake Kara in terror every night. Then more students start turning up dead, with strange marks on their bodies.

The zombies have arrived. Live it up with THE NEW DEAD, an anthology edited by Christopher Golden which includes original short stories from Joe Hill, John Connolly, Max Brooks, Kelley Armstrong, Tad Williams, David Wellington, David Liss, Aimee Bender, Jonathan Maberry, and many others. Publishers Weekly gave it a starred review, saying, "The 19 provocative, haunting, and genuinely unsettling original stories in this zombie anthology move the genre beyond its usual apocalyptic wastelands." Follow that up with 21st CENTURY DEAD, an anthology with an all-new lineup of authors from all corners of the fiction world, shining a dark light on our fascination with tales of death and resurrection...with ZOMBIES!
SOULLESS is a darkly unpleasant story about spirits, life after death, priorities,
and zombies. It is an insidious, gruesome bit of work that differs
in several vital ways from most zombie stories. It's also an ensemble
piece. Soulless was published by MTV Books. Visit the Soulless website.
Christopher Golden wrote a supernatural thriller called POISON INK, he hadn't seen or read The Sisterhood of the Traveling
Pants. Now, having viewed the film with his kids, he has
taken to saying that Poison
Ink is sort of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants with EVIL.
Actually, the only similarity is that both involve a group of girls
of very different backgrounds and the way that a brush with magic
changes their relationships with one another. In Poison
Ink, that brush is decidedly darker and more permanent than
a funky pair of jeans. Visit
the Poison Ink website.
