Pre-Order Your Special Edition Copy of Limbus, Inc. NOW!

Hello everyone. I’m getting very excited about the upcoming publication of Limbus, Inc., the shared-world novel that I co-wrote with Jonathan Mayberry, Joe Nassise, Benjamin Kane Ethridge, and Anne Petty. It’s becoming clear to me that we have something special on our hands, and the buzz is only continuing to grow. But don’t take my word for it. Here are some endorsements we have already received from some of the biggest names in the business.

“Limbus, Inc. is a brilliant concept that lets writers share a world while allowing their imaginations free rein. Ethridge, Mayberry, Nassise, Petty, and Talley take full advantage of all that creative elbow room and serve up some tasty stories. Do not miss this.” – F. Paul Wilson

“Listen up, fans. Limbus, Inc. is a delight. Remember all those alternate universes suggested by classics such as The Outer Limits and The Twilight Zone? Turns out they’re for real. Only one sinister corporation controls all of the entrances–and there are no exits.” – Harry Shannon, Stoker nominated author of Dead and Gone and The Hungry

“Limbus, Inc. is one of the strangest, creepiest things I’ve read in a long time. Guaranteed to send all you conspiracy theorists out there into paroxysms of paranoid delight! Well, you did warn us.” – Brian Knight, author of The Phoenix Girls, Book 1: The Conjuring Glass

“Get street level in crazy town. Limbus, Inc. finds a new kind of noir.” – Weston Ochse, author of Seal Team 666.

“The five novellas in Limbus, Inc. are the kind of horror fiction I love most: Smart, scary, funny, edgy, melancholy, and set in a world I recognize all too well. The most frightening elements here aren’t alien princesses with insatiable appetites, ancient murder cults, or shapeshifting assassins, but desperation, hunger, neverending wars, and a wealthy class all too eager to prey on the rest of us. Limbus, Inc. isn’t just kickass – it’s five kinds of kickass.” – Lisa Morton, four-time Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Castle of Los Angeles

“Limbus, Inc. is the best shared world anthology I’ve come across in the last twenty years. It was absolutely outstanding – five perfect stories from five of the top names in the business. Even the best shared world anthologies can, at times, play a little fast and loose with continuity, but not so Limbus, Inc. Editor Anne C. Petty has put together such a flexible, yet finely realized world here that the five voices she’s brought together sound like a choir warmed up in hell. This book is going to set the bar for shared world anthologies for a long time to come. Mark my words.” – Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Flesh Eaters and Inheritance

You can pre-order the book now, and we’ve also decided to do a special, limited edition version of the book, with tons of extra features, art work, and even a brand new story from Jonathan Maberry! Only 250 of these numbered, signed, limited edition books are being produced, so get in now if you want one. Well worth the price.

Catching Up–Finally Started On My New Book

Hello everyone. Wanted to drop a note and let you all know how I’m doing. I’ve been a bit of a stranger these last few months. My last job had me working 7 days a week, and I had very little time for anything other than that. But now, I’m back to a more normal schedule. Today I put the finishing touches on a frame I’ve been working on for a project with some other notable horror authors–Anne Petty, Jonathan Maberry, Joseph Nassise, and Benjamin Kane Ethridge. Some real rock stars, and I think now that I am finishing up the final product should be announced soon. I’ll have my section off to the editors on Sunday, and we can move forward from there.

On the novel front, I am FINALLY starting on the sequel to That Which Should Not Be. I am both excited and terrified by this prospect. TWSNB was a rather unique book–four stories told by four different men coming together with one overarching story to produce the final effect. When I wrote it, I didn’t think it was all that complicated. But looking back, I guess that was a pretty cool feat. In any event, the style with this book will be different by necessity, so I have to figure out how to manage that. I have good ideas with the plot–Lovecraftian deities will be present–just have to nail down the approach. Until next time…

Got a really nice surprise today. Blastr.com is running a Halloween series and today, they featured The Void. Here’s the link. The Void is one of three books they used as a banner for the article. You’ll see it right next to Stephen King’s The Mist and Neil Gaiman’s A Study in Emerald. Needless to say, I was quite honored. Check out the article and then head on over to Amazon and pick up The Void. You won’t be sorry, but you might not sleep as well at night . . .

Announcing My New Book–Haunted Tuscaloosa!

Hey guys. I have a new book out, and it is something completely different from what I normally do! It’s called Haunted Tuscaloosa, and it tells the story of one of my favorite cities. Most people know Tuscaloosa because it is the home to the Alabama Crimson Tide football team. But Tuscaloosa has a history that is filled not only with significance, but with the ghosts of the past.

Check it out. It’s a great story for anyone who loves ghosts, and it’s a great way to trick your kids into learning some history. You can purchase it by clicking the link above, or hit up your local Barnes & Noble!

Still not convinced? Listen to this ad we are running on radio stations in Alabama . . . if you dare!

Today Is Release Day For The Void!

Today’s the day! My second book, The Void, has been released. I’ve included some of the reviews below.  Hopefully, you’ll go check it out! Let me know what you think. And remember, positive Amazon reviews are appreciated.

“VERDICT – This unique and unnerving read is a sure bet for horror and SF fans… the horror elements are very well written and fascinating.”  – ­Rebecca M. Marrall, Western Washington Univ. Libs., Bellingham – Library Journal.

“Talley follows Stoker finalist That Which Should Not Be with another tale of cosmic horror. This tale of aliens preying on humanity stands out from the crowd thanks to the strength of Talley’s prose and creative imagination.”  – Publishers Weekly.

“With THE VOID, Brett J. Talley guides us out to the vastness of space and deep into the landscape of nightmare. Talley gives us elegant prose that whispers unspeakable horrors. Highly recommended.” – Jonathan Maberry, New York Times best-selling author of ASSASSIN’S CODE and DEAD OF NIGHT

“A cosmically magnificent piece of dark science fiction. Talley is a gifted story teller. Every word is an inevitable piece derived from a past dream, and every sentence, a haunting insinuation of what might come next.”  – Benjamin Kane Ethridge, Bram Stoker Award winning author of BLACK & ORANGE and BOTTLED ABYSS.

“The Void is one of the best horror novels that I’ve read this year, hands down. It is a vast improvement on That Which Should Not Be and firmly establishes Brett Talley as an author to watch out for in the future.”  –  Starburst Magazine

 ”Talley has composed an immensely effective novel. It’s rare we stumble onto a new author so consistent in their capability to allure us into their next anticipated journey. Talley proves That Which Should Not Be, his debut effort, was no fluke. He’s here to stay deeply embedded in our darkest dementia.  –  HorrorNews.net

The Story of Undead Press Just Gets Curiouser and Curiouser

As many of you know, Mandy DeGeit’s publishing horror story with Undead Press and Anthony Giangregorio has ignited a firestorm in the horror community.  If you don’t know what I am talking about, click here.  Like many people, I was both shocked and skeptical. Shocked at what Giangregorio supposedly did, but skeptical that it could be as bad as it sounds.  Then Johnathan Maberry weighed in. You can read the whole story here, but it really all boils down to this Facebook post:

When Jonathan Maberry says something like that, take notice.  Stay away from Undead Press, and stay away from Anthony Giangregorio.
