Take a walk on the weird side with this brand new novel based on the
bestselling role-playing game, Deadlands!
Tor Books is proud to present a new partnership with Pinnacle Entertainment Group and Visionary Books 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!
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 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.
The book also features amazing chapter illustrations from Visionary artist Steve Ellis, whose work has been featured in the Deadlands Comics.
Deadlands: Ghostwalkers also marks the debut of Visionary Books, the new imprint for prose fiction from Visionary.
