Next month is the Merry Month of May – the month of blooming flowers, spring sunshine and country dancing, yes? Not at Angry Robot it isn’t, no. At Angry Robot we’ll be doing our level best to throw a spanner in the works of all that jollity, levity and general pleasantness with a triple dose of dark, dark supernatural fiction, via the publication of Blackbirds by Chuck Wendig, Evil Dark by Justin Gustainis and The Nekropolis Archives by Tim Waggoner.
But why wait until May to bring the darkness, when you can get a head-start with extracts from all three titles, right here?

The first Miriam Black novel
Miriam Black knows when you will die. She’s foreseen hundreds of car crashes, heart attacks, strokes, and suicides.
But when Miriam hitches a ride with Louis Darling and shakes his hand, she sees that in thirty days Louis will be murdered while he calls her name. Louis will die because he met her, and she will be the next victim.
No matter what she does she can’t save Louis. But if she wants to stay alive, she’ll have to try.

The second Occult Crimes Unit Investigation
“My name’s Markowski. I carry a badge. Also a crucifix, some wooden stakes, big vial of holy water and a 9mm Beretta loaded with silver bullets.”
A series of seemingly motiveless murders of supernatural creatures points to a vigilante targeting the supe community of Scranton.
Markowski wouldn’t normally have much of a problem with that, but his daughter may be next on the killer’s list…
