“Mary King’s Plague”: Available on July 25th

Posted: July 4, 2013 in Dark Silo News

Dark Silo Press is pleased to announce the July release of “Mary King’s Plague” by Brian Kaufman. The novella-length e-book will be available on July 25th in Kindle, Nook and Kobo versions.

Set in 17th century Scotland, “Mary King’s Plague” imagines the Great Plague of 1644 as a zombie outbreak. The story explores themes of betrayal, redemption and forgiveness within a horror setting. Author Brian Kaufman notes, “There’s a definite comic book vibe, but that doesn’t mean the story’s not deadly serious. I wanted to write something fast-moving and claustrophobic, and I think the book reflects that.”

Eric S. Brown, author of Homeworld and Bigfoot Wars said, “Kaufman never fails to impress with his skill at creeping folks out.  Intense horror for the most avid fans of the  genre.”

In keeping with Dark Silo’s policy of giving readers a little something extra, this e-book edition will include a bonus short story. “Inexpiable” is a nasty little piece of work covering the same themes as the novella. “Inexpiable” first appeared in Bad Things (http://www.chrispimental.com/), which is a great place to find modern hard-boiled pulp fiction. The editor, Chris Pimental, loved “Inexpiable”—a litmus test for character that will disturb you.
