    Shock Totem Publications Presents The Wicked, by James Newman

    After a slight delay, The Wicked is now available. The delay was due to the fake price sticker on the back. The printer didn't like another bar code on the cover, even though it was fake. So we had to change that. You can see them both here and here.

    Anyway, here is the official announcement:

    Shock Totem Publications is pleased to announce that our first non-magazine release, James Newman's fantastic ode to 1980s horror, The Wicked, is now available for purchase.

    As previously noted, The Wicked has been revised by the author, expanded with a new foreword by Mark Allan Gunnells, a new afterword by the author, and brilliant new artwork and illustrations by Jesse David Young (with additional cover layout by Yannick Bouchard). Also included is a brand new, exclusive tie-in short story written specifically for this release.

    The book is currently available through our website and Amazon.com as a trade paperback for $14.99 and as an e-book for $4.99. We will keep you updated as it becomes more widely available through other retailers in the coming days and weeks.

    A lot of hard work went into this release. We think you'll dig it very much.

    If you have any questions, please let us know. Interested reviewers contact us at general@shocktotem.com.

            You got the tracking info, right? Looks like it's taking its sweet-ass time, though. =(

                            Thanks! Glad to hear it. =) If possible, please consider giving it a review on Amazon. =)

                            Speaking of reviews, they have begun popping up online. The first review was posted at Horror Drive-In. You can read it here.

                            The second can be found at Shroud Magazine Reviews. You can read it here.

                            And finally, tonight, The Crow's Caw has put up a great review, which you can read it here. But there is also a very insightful essay by James, plus they're giving away two copies of The Wicked and one copy of James's out-of-print collection, People Are Strange.

                            Check 'em out! =)
