Fury From the Tomb

“Little-known fact: H Rider Haggard and H P Lovecraft once stole a time machine and piloted it decades into the future, where they convinced Sergio Leone and Steven Spielberg to help them create the greatest horror-adventure-Western mash-up imaginable to human minds. Or so I’m assuming, because I just read Fury From the Tomb. Obviously, ‘S A Sidor’ is the pseudonym they all agreed upon so no meddlers would come after the time machine. But I’m not fooled.”
Steve Hockensmith, New York Times-bestselling author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls


Mummies, grave-robbing ghouls, hopping vampires, and evil monks  beset a young archaeologist, in this fast-paced Indiana Jones-style adventure.

Saqqara, Egypt, 1888, and in the booby-trapped tomb of an ancient sorcerer, Rom, a young Egyptologist, makes the discovery of a lifetime: five coffins and an eerie, oversized sarcophagus. But the expedition seems cursed, for after unearthing the mummies, all but Rom die horribly. He faithfully returns to America with his disturbing cargo, continuing by train to Los Angeles, home of his reclusive sponsor. When the train is hijacked by murderous banditos in the Arizona desert, who steal the mummies and flee over the border, Rom – with his benefactor’s rebellious daughter, an orphaned Chinese busboy, and a cold-blooded gunslinger – must ride into Mexico to bring the malevolent mummies back. If only mummies were their biggest problem…

Goodreads URL Review & Discuss Fury From the Tomb

“Little-known fact: H Rider Haggard and H P Lovecraft once stole a time machine and piloted it decades into the future, where they convinced Sergio Leone and Steven Spielberg to help them create the greatest horror-adventure-Western mash-up imaginable to human minds. Or so I’m assuming, because I just read Fury From the Tomb. Obviously, ‘S A Sidor’ is the pseudonym they all agreed upon so no meddlers would come after the time machine. But I’m not fooled.”
Steve Hockensmith, New York Times-bestselling author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls

“There are vampires, evil monks, monsters, and gunslingers lurking about, and as Rom’s mission grows increasingly wild—and increasingly dangerous, the book only grows more compulsively readable.”
The B&N Sci- Fi & Fantasy Blog

Fury from the Tomb is a modern-day pulp novel, something in the line of The Spider, The Shadow, and Indiana Jones. It’s easy-to-read adventure and most entertaining.”
Reading and Literature Resources Blog

Fury From the Tomb is a full-on, red blooded assembly of dead things that should really be dead… In other words, the sort of thing you would sit down and gleefully watch at your local flea pit while your mates try to steal your oversized tub of horrifically sweet popcorn. S A Sidor takes all the cliches in this classic B-movie mashup, throws in a bit of Raiders of the Lost Ark, Nosferatu, The Mummy etc, then really goes to town on them.”
Strange Alliances

“This novel was exactly what I needed to remind me that books can be fun, they can be visceral, and don’t have to take themselves so gosh-darned seriously.”
Deep Fried Ink

Fury From the Tomb is a fun, dark fantasy that feels a bit like Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. With creepy mummies, claustrophobic tombs, ghouls, and vampires – this story doesn’t lack for danger and suspense. It’s action-packed excitement from beginning to end… I thoroughly enjoyed this start to a new series. And I look forward to more of Rom’s adventures.”
SciFi Chick

“This Indiana Jones pulpy adventure circa 1888 does have loads of tense and horror-infused moments that are a joy to read. My rating: 5/5 stars”
Just A Guy Who Like To Read

“A fun, entertaining, and wild ride… This book is a mashup of everything that makes weird fiction fun.”
The Irregular Reader

“A rare find. This homage to old school adventure is great fun and delivers exactly what it promises. Entertaining, exciting and unexpected.”
The Eloquent Page

Praise for Steven Sidor

“Unforgettable, spellbinding, and darkly suspenseful. Sidor must have sold his soul to the devil to write this well.”
– Steve Hamilton, award-winning author of the Alex McKnight series

“Sidor is a master of the unsettling, and each twist is more grisly and unexpected than the last.”
– Publisher’s Weekly (starred review)

“Steven Sidor keeps the pacing piano-wire taut and selects his words with a vivisectionist’s diabolical care.”
– Stewart O’Nan, author of West of Sunset

“Dark, harrowing, and unpredictable as a run of dangerous river. Sidor plunges you into chilling waters on page one and barely lets you up for air.”
Gregg Hurwitz, author of the Orphan X series

“Compelling and chilling, The Mirror’s Edge delivers everything a reader could want – strong characters, driving narrative, and edge-of-your-seat suspense. Unconventional and challenging, yet engaging and very human, it is a wonderful novel from a talented writer.”
– David Morrell, author of First Blood

Pitch Dark is a propulsive, layered, and brutal read. A reader can’t hope for more than to discover a writer possessed of both true talent and true passion. Discover Steven Sidor.”
 Michael Koryta, NYT-bestselling author of Rise the Dark

Pitch Dark is as relentlessly suspenseful as any crime novel you’ve ever read, but at the same time it’s as scary as the best horror stories. Once you’ve met the walking nightmare who calls himself the Pitch – and his devoted henchmen – you will never forget them (try as you might). A harrowing, nonstop flight into the very heart of darkness, Pitch Dark kept me up half the night – and when I did go to bed, I left the lights on.”
– Robert Masello, author of The Einstein Prophecy

“Sidor is a prince of darkness, steeped in the noir tradition and not giving an inch. That said, he is also bountifully talented.”
– Kirkus Reviews

“Sidor sets this classic prey-and-predator story in a North Woods landscape laden with hunting associations. Exquisitely plotted, with a well-realized main character.”
– Booklist

“Ideal for those who enjoy queasy, uneasy, macabre reading – this is stomach churning suspense at its best.”
– Lansing State Journal

SA Sidor writes supernatural historical adventures. He lives near Chicago with his family. He is also the author of four acclaimed dark crime thrillers.
