Tor Books has announced a new partnership with Pinnacle Entertainment Group and Visionary Comics to publish a series of thrilling novels based on Deadlands, the hugely successful role-playing game set in the Weird West! The series begins with Deadlands: Ghostwalkers (A Tor Trade Paperback; $15.99; September 22, 2015) by New York Times bestselling author, Jonathan Maberry, out just in time for the Halloween season! Maberry has also won multiple Bram Stoker Awards and is an editor and comic book writer as well as a prolific novelist.
As a master of zombie fiction, Maberry pens an adventure unlike any other, where steely-eyed gunslingers rub shoulders with mad scientists and dark, unnatural forces. This is a place where the Great Quake of 1868 has shattered California into a labyrinth of sea-flooded caverns… and a mysterious substance called “ghost rock” fuels exotic steampunk inventions and causes plenty of bloodshed and flying bullets.
In Ghostwalkers, a gun-for-hire, literally haunted by his bloody past, comes to the struggling town of Paradise Falls, where he becomes embroiled in a deadly conflict between the besieged community and a diabolically brilliant alchemist who is building a terrible new weapon of mass destruction… and assembling an army of the living dead!
Tabletop gamers as well as fans of steampunk, science fiction, and alternate history will be swept up in this brand new installment set in the highly acclaimed and beloved world of the Deadlands RPG universe.
Maberry is the multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The King of Plagues, Patient Zero, The Dragon Factory, Ghost Road Blues, and Rot & Ruin, among others. He also wrote the novelization of the movie The Wolfman. His work for Marvel Comics includes Captain America, Punisher, Wolverine, DoomWar, Marvel Zombie Return, and Black Panther. His Joe Ledger series has been optioned for TV by Sony Pictures. He has been inducted into the International Martial Arts Hall of Fame.
