Head First, No Helmet & Zombie Messiah: Coming Attractions

Here are some handpicked titles from our Coming Attractions page. Want to include your book? Just read our Share Your New Book with GalleyCat Readers post for all the details.

Head First, No Helmet by Robert P. Winkler: “Our intrepid hero stands at the cusp of adulthood, staring into the abyss from the safety of childhood. An entire world of choices lay before him as he looks to the future. He was always told he can do whatever he puts his mind to. Should he go to college? Get a job? Get two jobs? Find a wife and have some kids? Maybe fly on a plane for the first time, or move across the country? Go hunting or learn a martial art? How about all of the above.” (January 2013)

Nevermore: A Novel of Love, Loss, & Edgar Allan Poe by David Niall Wilson: “One dark, moonlit night, two artists met at The Lake Drummond Hotel, built directly on the borderline of North Carolina and Virginia. One was a young woman with the ability to see spirits trapped in trees and stone, anchored to the earth beyond their years. Her gift was to draw them, and then to set them free. The other was a dark man, haunted by dreams and visions that brought him stories of sadness and pain, and trapped in a life between the powers he sensed all around him, and a mundane existence attended by failure.” (January 2013)

Zombie Messiah by Jacob Wiker: “A zombie apocalypse. A bloodthirsty cyborg of monstrous proportions. A woman struggling with the death of a lover – and guilt for the same. A scientist hiding from his own creations as he wrestles with ethical constructions of cause and effect. A preacher for the undead horde, leading his slavering congregation towards utter ruin.” (March 2013)
