When Egyptologist Rom Hardy receives a strange letter from his old friend, the bounty-hunting sniper Rex McTroy, he finds himself drawn into a chilling mystery. In the mountains of New Mexico, a bloodthirsty creature is on the loose, leaving a trail of bodies in its wake. Now, a wealthy big game hunter has offered a staggering reward for its capture, and Rom’s patron – the headstrong and brilliant Evangeline Waterston – has signed the team up for the challenge. Awaiting them are blizzards, cold-blooded trappers, remorseless hunters, a mad doctor, wild animals and a monster so fearsome and terrifying, it must be a legend come to life.

Praise for The Institute for Singular Antiquities

“Pulp-fiction pastiches are hardly rare these days but few are as artfully executed as this one, which brings together ancient mummies, cursed tombs, loathsome monsters, and Mexican bandits. Narrated by a young Egyptologist blissfully lacking in self-awareness, it’s tongue-in-cheek joy from start to finish.”
– James Lovegrove for the Financial Times

“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

“As Rom’s mission grows increasingly wild–and increasingly dangerous, the book only grows more compulsively readable.”
– Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

Fury From the Tomb is your cure for the pulp fiction blues you never knew you had. This tantalizing mashup combines supernatural horror, western and adventure in one shiny package.”
– Kirkus Reviews

Fury from the Tomb is a modern-day pulp novel, something in the line of The SpiderThe 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 ArkNosferatuThe 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
