By Richard Wright
Shroud Publishing is pleased to announce
the publication of Hiram Grange & the Nymphs of Krakow, the fifth and final novella in Volume One of the Scandalous Misadventures of Hiram Grange.
Hiram Grange was already broken when his world was turned upside down by the horrifying revelations of a beautiful and dangerous woman. Faced with the possibility that he’s been a pawn in a diabolical game, he seeks the truth in the snows of Krakow. But the truth is guarded by ancient, winged things, and the truth has teeth …
This is the book that prompted bestselling author Brian Keene to say:
"Twisted, shocking and full of pitch-black humor and darkly original twists. One of the best books I've read this year."
Brian Keene, author of DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN and DEAD SEA
Now Rebecca, who runs the Dirty Sexy Books' blog, chimed in with this:
"I just loved this supernatural horror novella, and my only regret is that it went by too damn fast... a wicked good ride through some dark, twisted avenues with a demented savior... This one entertained me beautifully, and it had it all; it was a gritty and sexy balls-to-the-walls adventure. If you’re a fan of dark urban fantasy like me, then you’ll rejoice upon finding this treasure trove...."
But that's not all. Steven Savile , the International Bestselling author of Silver, Primeval: Shadow of the Jaguar and Stargate SG-1: The Power Behind the Throne loved the book as well:
"Richard Wright is one of the best kept secrets in horror, which is a crying shame because a guy this good shouldn't be a secret at all. And best of all, he just keeps getting better. Hiram Grange and the Nymphs of Krakow is a good old fashioned rollicking tale of mysticism and mayhem. The pages turn themselves, it's that good."
