Posted by Thunderstorm Books on October 4, 2019

Maelstrom 8 is now up for preorder!  This book is expected to ship December 2019.

Three books.

Curse of the Bastards by Steven L Shrewsbury and Brian Keene

The Triangle of Belief by Brian Keene

World’s Fare by Michael Huyck.

Two states.

The limited editions will be done in very similar style as previous years.  Books will be bound in white cloth boards with full color dust jackets and black endsheets.  If you liked the style of the limited editions from the previous years, then this is the set for you.  But unlike previous years, where the print runs 260+ copies.  This year’s set will have a maximum of 150 copies produced in the limited state.  These books will be signed and limited, but not numbered.  Preorders will only be available until Sunday, October 13th or until the 150 copies sell out, whichever happens first.  The number of preorders becomes the print run.


The deluxe box set will be done with premium board material (no jackets), specialty endsheets, frontis artwork, satin page ribbon marker and a slipcase to house the three books.  These books will be signed, limited, and numbered.  Your name will be included on a special page.  This state is for collectors who like their books with some extra touches.  Pre-orders for this state are only available for the next 36 hours, this book will be sold out (and the print run established) on Sunday, October 6th at 4 pm AZ time.



Bored with retirement, the aging barbarian Rogan — accompanied by his loyal nephew Javan — returns to the land of his birth and encounters enemies both old and new near the great city-state of Nodd. All he wanted was to be left alone, but now Rogan will have to lay siege to the great metropolis, waging war against its bloodthirsty leader, uncovering the sinister plot of an ancient evil, and learning the truth about his god, Wodan.

Thunderstorm Books is proud to present CURSE OF THE BASTARDS — the final book in Steven L. Shrewsbury and Brian Keene’s Bastards Trilogy.


In January 2018, authors Brian Keene and Mary SanGiovanni witnessed a group of unidentified flying objects over their home. That encounter with the unexplained forms the basis for this honest, revealing memoir-styled treatise on faith, religion, the occult, atheism, agnosticism, science, and the supernatural, as Brian Keene takes the reader on a journey through his own belief structure, revealing how it has influenced him as both a person and a writer, impacting everything from his lifestyle choices to the books he’s written. Regardless of your own individual experience, you’ll find yourself pondering THE TRIANGLE OF BELIEF.


Darryl sees dead people and the history all around them. It’s a living that has always come with complications, but now Darryl has become a tool exploited by competing powers from different times, different places, and different realities. The struggle eventually lands him and his friend in the middle of New Orleans and the Robert Charles race riots, where the past they select will decide the future the world gets. This world, anyway.

Thunderstorm Books is proud to present WORLD’S FARE, the debut novel by Michael Huyck.
