We’ve started our fall season at CamCat and we have lots of exciting news about our new and upcoming releases!


New Releases:

The Darkness Surrounds Us by Gail Lukasik, out 9/5/2023

“Lukasik (White Like Her) delivers a gripping ghost story of pandemics past in this well-crafted gothic mystery . . . Readers will sympathize with Nellie’s fears and frustrations, and Lukasik maintains a deliciously dark tension throughout. With unpredictable plotting and superior atmospherics, this is an early-autumn treat fit for late-night devouring.” Publishers Weekly

“VERDICT: Lukasik blends all the elements needed for a dark suspense novel: a forbidding mansion, ghostly presences, secret passages, a hostile housekeeper, a temperamental employer, and residents unwilling to talk to outsiders. For fans of Rebecca, The Woman in White, and The Death of Mrs. Westaway.” Library Journal

“Atmospheric and poetic, this is a tale that will keep you turning the pages until you reach the final, startling revelation.” —Raymond Benson, author of The Mad, Mad Murders of Marigold Way

“Moody and atmospheric, The Darkness Surrounds Us by Gail Lukasik is a taut gothic mystery with an intriguing twist. —Susanna Calkins, award-winning author of the Lucy Campion Mysteries and the Speakeasy Murders

Out in Paperback:

Intergalactic Exterminators, Inc by Ash Bishop

“This book is so much fun it ought to be illegal in all known galaxies. Ash Bishop has written a wildly imagined, deeply felt, swashbuckling page turner. I loved it.” —Jesse Kellerman, New York Times bestselling author of The Burning

“VERDICT Bishop’s sci-fi debut is recommended for readers who think Larry Correia’s “Monster Hunter International” series should go intergalactic, those who enjoy stories featuring the people who get the dirty jobs done, and especially anyone who wishes that Martha Wells’s Murderbot would become a superhero.” Library Journal

“Bishop’s feel-good sci-fi debut kicks off when drifter Russ Wesley discovers a mysterious stone among his recently deceased grandfather’s collection of oddities . . . imbuing this romp with solid worldbuilding, a broad sense of adventure, and a sensitive emotional core. With gruesome alien battles, layered conflict, and a sprinkling of humor, this is sure to find an audience.” Publishers Weekly

“For those who like space adventures with mystery, intrigue, and some scary beasties, this will be an engaging read.” Booklist
