Launching today are the six inaugural titles from Flame Tree Press. Over the last month or so, I've been working my way through advance review copies of these launch titles from Jonathan Janz, Hunter Shea, Tim Waggoner, and Ramsey Campbell.
David Tallerman, and J.D. Moyer are also making their Flame Tree Press debuts with The Bad Neighbor (a crime thriller) and The Sky Woman (sci-fi), respectively. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to dig into those two non-horror releases just yet, as I've had a bit of a time crunch between getting sick, my two boys and my wife getting sick, and the whole lot of us going round-robin again and again with various batches of illnesses cooked up by our daycare's biohazard division. By all means, though, click on through to check out those book's Amazon pages for more information on 'em.
Of the four horror titles I was able to read, though, I was largely impressed with Flame Tree's debut, and I am genuinely looking forward to see how this publisher shapes up in the coming months and years. If this first batch of books is anything to go by, Flame Tree most certainly deserves your support and attention, and I hope they're able to stick around for a good long while.
