We are very pleased to announce that Shaun Meeks‘ third book in his Dillon the Monster Dick series will be released on May 3 2019. As his previous volumes, The Gate at Lake Drive, and Earthbound and Down, the story continues with weird horror, humour, and an undercurrent of consulting detective noir.
The cover is nothing short of spectacular – kudos to Steve Santiago, who has continued to be artist and cover designer for the series.
One of the enjoyable series that IFWG International publishes, is the Dillon the Monster Dick series by Canadian writer, Shaun Meeks. His series is a unique blend of horror, weird, detective noir and Dr Who (if you can believe it – believe it and buy them and see).
We previously published two books, The Gate at Lake Drive and Earthbound and Down, and fans of the series look forward to the next instalment, Altered Gate, scheduled for release in August 2018. We are pleased to have signed this book with Shaun.
Shaun Meeks lives in Toronto, Ontario with his partner, Mina LaFleur, where they own and operate their own corset company L’Atelier de LaFleur. Shaun is the author of The Dillon the Monster Dick series (Earthbound and Down and The Gate at Lake Drive), as well as Maymon, Shutdown and Down on the Farm. He has published more than 50 short stories; the most recent appearing in The Best of the Horror Zine, Midian Unmade: Tales of Clive Barker’s Nightbreed, Dark Moon Digest, Rouge Nation, Shrieks and Shivers from The Horror Zine, Zippered Flesh 2, Of Devils & Deviants and Fresh Fear. His short stories have been collected in At the Gates of Madness, Dark Reaches and Brother’s Ilk (with James Meeks).
IFWG has had a long association with the artist, Steve Santiago, and we were chuffed with his commission for the cover and design for The Gate at Lake Drive by Shaun Meeks, the first book in the Dillon the Monster Dick Series (noir, horror). We are doubly chuffed with the atmospheric piece Steve has done for the second book in the series, Earthbound and Down. Steve, we love you!
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.
