New Release


Now up for order, our fifth Michael McDowell reissue, GILDED NEEDLES! This first-ever reprint features a new introduction by Christopher Fowler and stunning cover art by Mike Mignola. Unlike McDowell's other novels, the horror in this one is entirely human: Black Lena Shanks, queen of New York's 'Black Triangle', is out for revenge on the family of Judge Stallworth, who sentenced three of her family to death. The terror begins when the Stallworths all receive engraved invitations -- to their own funerals! A terrific read McDowell fans won't want to miss.
