Some exciting news from Aussie pubslisher, Clan Destine Press, with the announcement that they have signed up a number of SuperNOVA authors.
From the website:
- Jason Nahrung, very well known in the darker corners of the spec-fic world, is bringing two action vampire novels to CDP. Blood and Dust and The Big Smoke are action-packed very-Australian novels that form the Outback Vampire Mechanic duology. They will be out in paperback and eBook very soon.
- Pete Aldin – Eventide is just the kind of cross-genre extravaganza that we love here at CDP. It’s a sci-fi crime thriller. Eventide is Pete’s debut novel but he’s been out in the world writing short fiction for a few years and is a member of the Chelsea Dark Fiction Writers’ Circle.
- David McDonald – Cold Comfort joins the Clan Destine Fictions imprint for short stories and short collections. We’re hoping David has more to add!
