THE DAMNED HIGHWAY, now available

My latest novel, The Damned Highway, written in collaboration with Brian Keene, is now available. Theoretically, it comes out tomorrow, but amazon, Powell's, and many local bookstores are already stocking and shipping the title. The Damned Highway is part of a fiction/prose initiative at Dark Horse, the third-largest comic book publisher in the United States.

A bit about the book:

A hilarious, shocking, terrifying thrill ride across the American landscape, The Damned Highway pays homage to the gonzo journalism of Hunter S. Thompson and the uncanny terrors of H. P. Lovecraft!

Horror legend Brian Keene (The Rising) and cult storytelling master Nick Mamatas (Move Under Ground) dredge up a tale of drug-fueled eldritch madness from the blackest depths of the American nightmare. On a freaked-out bus journey to Arkham, Massachusetts, and the 1972 presidential primary, evidence mounts that sinister forces are on the rise, led by the Cult of Cthulhu and its most prominent member—Richard M. Nixon!

We're still six months out from the Presidential primaries and caucuses, but if you're curious as to what the future holds for these United States, you could do worse than buy one of these immediately. Actually, if you live in a swing district, buy twenty. When a canvasser knocks on your door and offers you literature about their preferred candidate, you can say, "Thanks, and I have a little reading material for you as well..."

Wow, this sounds cool! Did you guys read Transmetropolitan? I'm gonna pick that up a long with this.

I read the first volume of Transmet. Wasn't my favorite. Brian is a big fan.
