Christopher Golden & Mike Mignola Present A Chiller!

I've gotten to know Chris by phone over the years we were both writing for Buffy the Vampire Slayer novels. He's a great guy, and one of the hardest working in the business.

I was in Hasting yesterday, picking up another book, and found Baltimore. I'd known it was coming out, but I'd lost track of when. Things at home have been chaotic, school's started, and I'm behind.

The book is hypnotic, filled with harsh, dark imagery that Mignola (creator of Hellboy) works his magic on. I picked the book up and found I simply couldn't put it down. Now I wish I had the time to read it, but I'm going to treat it right: settle in for a day when I can spend all day with it rather than a burst of "quickie" reads that ultimately aren't satisfying when you're with a good book.

In the meantime, though, Chris's newest Buffy (one of the last that will be published in that series for the foreseeable future) is also out this month.

And his latest in the Menagerie series he does with Tom Sniegnoski (creator of the TV mini-series Fallen).

He has a new Hellboy book out this year.

And the newest volume of his Myth Hunters series.

While the first one is out in paperback.

Like I said, a very busy guy. Pick up Baltimore if you're in the mood for something familiar done with a twist and rendered in dark, atmospheric vision. I think you'll like it.

I love Hellboy.. I'll have to pick that one up at least.
