Book Translation Deals: S. Craig Zahler, Larry Fondation

Author S. Craig Zahler bio picture

RDSP is pleased to announce translation into German and Russian of Wraiths of the Broken Land by S. Craig Zahler. While Zahler is hard at work filming his next features—Brawl in Cell Block 99 and the Puppet Master relaunch—we are negotiating more foreign language translations to be announced soon.

Meanwhile, Larry Fondation's Unintended Consequences has been translated by Romain Guillou and published in French by Charybde as Effets indésirables. It's wonderful to watch his continued success in France following the previous translation of his Raw Dog Screaming work. Congratulations, Larry!

Snowed Pre-order

City Ash and Desert Bones cover art

Charity Jones is a 16-year-old engineering genius who’s much-bullied for being biracial and a skeptic at her conservative school in Oak County, California. Everything changes when Charity’s social worker mother brings home a sweet teen runaway named Aidan to foster for the holidays. Matched in every way, Charity and Aidan quickly fall in love. But it seems he’s not the only new arrival: Charity soon finds the brutally slain corpse of her worst bully and she gets hard, haunting evidence that the killer is stalking Oak County. As she and her Skeptics Club investigate this death and others, they find at every turn the mystery only grows darker and more deadly. One thing’s for certain: there’s a bloody battle coming this holiday season that will change their lives – and human history – forever.

Will they be ready?

Find out this 2016 holiday season how you, Charity, me, everyone…has been Snowed.

Just Released

Steel Magic cover art

Cynthia Pelayo constructs a narrative in her poetry in response to the work of Jorge Luis Borges that examines the themes and subsequent consequences of insomnia, death, and blindness. There’s a visionary quality to her work that dances along the line between the present world that we inhabit and the other world that lingers beyond the veil. Her poetry folds back this blanket of darkness, and shows readers the quiet violence and beauty that hides beneath waiting to be exposed, experienced, and encompassed.

300 years in the future the world is run by the Theocracy and the Apostles are their representatives. The tiny, dusty and ironically named town of Big City has never seen Apostles until the newly deputized team, Reesa and Joule, are given their first assignment—get to the bottom of the town’s untapped oil reserves. They are a married couple, supposed to have been matched perfectly by the Theocracy, and Reesa is eager to do her duty while Joule is dismayed at the backwater, Old West-style location they find themselves in.

Just as Big City belies its name, so do nearly all appearances in this small town. Efforts to find out what’s going on there are thwarted by the mayor and citizens alike. Soon they discover that the quaint false front of the town hides a terrible truth—it’s under siege by creatures known as Takers. The town has placed their faith in Tombstone, a stoic straight shooter, but even he can’t keep everyone safe. As the bodies begin to mount Reesa strikes out on her own only to discover that she is at the center of the biggest lie of all.
