Coming Soon: “Crab Town”

Next month, my new novella “Crab Town” will be released. This is my first 100-page novella to be published since Ultra Fuckers. Basically it is a bizarro bank heist story set in a dystopian post-nuke city. Featuring: radiation fetishists, balloon people, monster crabs, sail-bike road warriors, and a love affair between a woman and an H-Bomb.

  1. Fucking awesome bro, I can’t wait. Wish that the Badlands and this released around the same time get both together. Hey quick question how come you guys don’t have any pre-order stiff on amazon. Does Rose and you guys just put the book out when its ready to be shipped and done. Just wondered cause I was wanting to save the books in my cart and what not. Either way again thanks for all the kick ass work, and I am very very very excited to see that the man Brian Keene recently visited you guys out there and that can only mean some awesome shit in the future and I cant wait .

  2. Awesome. I love the bit about the woman and her affair with the H-Bomb. That just sounds like it’d be right up my alley.

    By skipping the pre-order phase, it means the books come out sooner. For Eraserhead, when there are pre-orders available on amazon it means that the book is ready to go a few months before its street date. Eraserhead chooses to just release the book as soon as it’s ready to go rather than hold off for the sake of pre-orders.

    Barbarian Beast Bitches won’t be out until a month or two after Crab Town (because it needs to be illustrated)

    My next story collection might be out very soon as well.

    And as for BK, hell yeah!

    • Again, thanks for all the great work and info. I cant believe that Deadite has 5 of my favorite authors doing things for them, in you of course, Ed Lee, Wrath James White, Bryan Smith and now Brian Keene. As far as I am concerned Deadite/Eraserhead has cornered the market on kick ass horror!!!

        If you haven’t already you should check out Slaughter House High. Robert Devereaux is another amazing horror writer that has done quite a few must-reads. He will have a lot more coming out through Deadite this year.

  4. Ha I already have it and am about to get to that book soon. And again thanks for the info.

  5. Hi, Carlton,
    I am curious if the Avant Punk bookclub is still available for your books? I’ve seen ads listed in your older works. I just picked up Crab Town & I didn’t see it listed in the back. If it’s still available, I would like to sign up in the future.

      It doesn’t exist anymore unless you’re already a member. There were too many problems with it, like the books took forever to get out to people and I couldn’t keep up with the 6 books a year schedule …mostly because my books have been getting longer.
