IFWG is primarily an adult speculative fiction publishing house and yet we haven’t published any dark fiction, horror if you will, except for our Australian imprint and some anthologies. Shaun Meeks fills this hole, and with a great deal of good reading!

It is with pleasure that we announce the release of Shaun’s novel, The Gate at Lake Drive, the first in what we hope will be a long running series, paying homage to detective noir stories, and weird, supernatural themes.

APSH v2b Cover_rgp

MF Burbaugh is one of IFWG’s earliest authors, and he is a prolific writer indeed. What astonishes us is that, despite the speed in which he writes novels, they are always entertaining pieces, with a great deal of action and interesting characters. A Planet’s Search for History is one such title and has now been released.

Elizabeth Lang’s evocative cover is perfectly suited to the novel because the high and precipitous mountain that is about to be scaled by the protagonists, is the opening scene, and is at the centre of much of the storyline.

Stay tuned and the print and ebook editions will be released very soon.

The following is the story’s blurb:

Ever wonder where you came from? Where it all started?

This is the account of four people who start out looking for their ancient past, one of several groups funded by a wealthy politician. They must climb a frozen mountain and hunt for a place called Castle Gods-Cut. ‘Cut’ was thought to have once meant ‘origin’.

What they find is a single door blocked by ice that leads to a huge complex of caves and doors, some deadly, some leading to places that can’t possibly exist anywhere on their planet.

With the help of a rescued A.I. that thinks she should look like one of an ancient race called humans, events develop that may determine if humanoids of any kind shall be allowed to exist in the galaxy, as they encounter a race of aliens that love people. For snack food that is.

Cover Reveal: The Gate at Lake Drive by Shaun Meeks

In less than a week IFWG Publishing (international) will be releasing its first horror title, The Gate at Lake Drive, by Canadian author, Shaun Meeks. It is the first of the Dillon the Monster Dick series, with a distinctive noir detective style (hence the series title), meshed with horror. As an added bonus, we have included a short story, ‘The Undergarment Eater’, whose protagonist is the same detective, Dillon.

We secured the artistry and skills of Steve Santiago for the cover, and are keen indeed to share with everyone. Below is the atmospheric front cover, as well the full spread for your eyes’ delight.

The following is a taste of what’s in store:

Meet Dillon, the Monster Dick. He’s a detective of sorts, a man hired to hunt down things that have come into our world that have no right to be here. Whether it’s a monster made up of paint cans and rags, spirits that hide in carpets, or animals possessed by demons, Dillon will dispatch them as soon as he finds them.

His new job is up in northern Ontario, where the mayor has hired him to deal with creatures that seem to be coming from a whirlpool in the middle of the lake. When he hears this, he’s more worried than he’s ever been. In all the years Dillon has been a hunter, he’s never once heard of a flock of monsters coming into this realm.

Dillon heads there with his new friend, Rouge Hills, and finds nothing is what it seems. It’s not just one type of monster, but something far worse trying to be born into our world. The odds are stacked against him, but since the money is good, there’s no turning back.

It might be a little long…
