Presales for "Baltimore"- Christopher Golden

$ 25.00

It give us great pleasure to welcome Christopher Golden with his animated novel Baltimore.  

From celebrated comic artist Mike Mignola and award-winning novelist Christopher Golden comes a work of gothic storytelling like no other. Reminiscent of the illustrated tales of old, here is a lyrical, atmospheric novel of the paranormal—and a chilling allegory for the nature of war.

“Why do dead men rise up to torment the living?” Captain Henry Baltimore asks the malevolent winged creature. The vampire shakes its head. “It was you called us. All of you, with your war. The roar of your cannons shook us from our quiet graves…. You killers. You berserkers…. You will never be rid of us now.”

When Lord Henry Baltimore awakens the wrath of a vampire on the hellish battlefields of World War I, the world is forever changed. For a virulent plague has been unleashed—a plague that even death cannot end.

Now the lone soldier in an eternal struggle against darkness, Baltimore summons three old friends to a lonely inn—men whose travels and fantastical experiences incline them to fully believe in the evil that is devouring the soul of mankind.

As the men await their old friend, they share their tales of terror and misadventure, and contemplate what part they will play in Baltimore’s timeless battle. Before the night is through, they will learn what is required to banish the plague—and the creature who named Baltimore his nemesis—once and for all.

A life fan of "team-up," Golden frequently collaborates with other writers on books, comics, and scripts.  In addition to his recent work with Tim Lebbon, he co-wrote the lavishly illustrated novel Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire with Mike Mignola.  With Thomas E. Sniegoski, he is the co-author of multiple novels, as well as comic book mini series such as Talent and The Sisterhood,  both currently in development as feature films.  With Amber Benson, Golden co-created the online animated series Ghost of Albion and co-wrote the book series of the same name.

As an editor, he has worked on the short story anthologies The new Dead and British invasion, among others, and has also written and co-written comic books, video games, screenplays, the online animated series Ghost of Albion (with Amber  Benson ) and a network television pilot.

The author is also known for his many media tie-in works, including novels, comic and video games, in the worlds of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Hellboy, Angel and X-Men, among others.

Golden was born and raised in Massachusetts, where he still lives with his family.  His original novels have been published in fourteen languages in countries around the world.
