We quietly snuck this one out in ebook last week, but with the print version finally showing up at Amazon (and other retailers to follow soon – ask for it at your local bookstore!), we would like to formally welcome to the world Path of Night by Dirk Flinthart!
Being infected with an unknown disease is bad. Waking up on a slab in a morgue wearing nothing but a toe-tag is worse, even if it comes with a strange array of new abilities.
Medical student Michael Devlin is in trouble. With his flatmates murdered and an international cabal of legendary man-monsters on his trail, Devlin’s got nowhere to hide. His only allies are a hot-tempered Sydney cop and a mysterious monster-hunter who may be setting Devlin up for the kill. If he’s going to survive, Devlin will have to embrace his new powers and confront his hunters. But can he hold onto his humanity when he walks the Path of Night?
Path of Night is the first of the Night Beast series – we anticipate book 2 will see release in mid-2014.
The first reviews are already starting to come in, with this lovely gem on Amazon:
…action driven, laced with humor…I am hoping that there will be a sequel. –Roger Ross
About the author…
Dirk Flinthart is an Australian writer of speculative fiction who lives in northern Tasmania. Notable to date mostly for short stories, he is also the editor of the Canterbury 2100 anthology, (originally published by AGOG! press, re-released in ebook form in 2013 by FableCroft), and has the distinction of sharing a Ditmar award with Margo Lanagan, which he is quite proud of.
Path of Night represents Flinthart’s longest published work to date, and is planned as the first in a series of stories centering around Michael Devlin. The next one is well under way…
We’ve got three copies to give away (internationally) over on Goodreads, or get your copy from your favourite ebook-seller or print retailer!
Yes, it is July – it’s been a busy couple of months! Regular readers will remember that in April, we had a bonus offer for two lucky purchasers to win a copy of two great books I had surplus (new, unread!). I finally got around to using the Random Number Generator to get those winners!
Suzanne was the first name drawn, and will have first choice of either A Confusion of Princes by Garth Nix or The Shattering by Karen Healey (Lara will receive the book Suzanne doesn’t choose).
Thanks to everyone who purchased a FableCroft book in April! And my apologies it took so long for me to draw the winners
Buy any FableCroft book from now until the end of April, and go in the draw to win a copy of either Karen Healey’s awesome book, The Shattering, OR Garth Nix’s new novel (equally if differently awesome), A Confusion of Princes! Yup, two prizes, with the first person drawn getting first choice of book! Each book purchase will increase your chances of winning – buy three books, get three entries!
It occurred to me today that I have a marvellous opportunity to give readers (even more) incentive to pre-order their copy of FableCroft’s forthcoming gift book, To Spin a Darker Stair. The book features stories by Catherynne M Valente and Faith Mudge, and is illustrated by Kathleen Jennings.
Last month I accidentally ended up with an extra copy of Sea Hearts, the newest novel from the marvellous Margo Lanagan (I reviewed it here). I highly recommend it, so I’m offering it up as a pre-order prize! One lucky person who pre-orders To Spin a Darker Stair before March 15, 2012, will win Sea Hearts as well (drawn randomly from all pre-orders).
So, for just $7.95 (Australia), $8.95 (New Zealand) or $9.95 (rest of the world) you have the chance to get not just one but TWO awesome (beautiful) books! Don’t miss out on your chance to win - pre-order now! **
** Winner will be drawn from all pre-orders prior to March 15, 2012, including those already placed.
Congratulations Deborah, who has won The Way of the Wizard. Thanks everyone who entered!
