This week DarkFuse announced that author Greg F. Gifune has signed a three year extension with the publishing house, which will feature three new novels and six new novellas.
From the press release:
Called "One of the best writers of his generation" by both the Roswell Literary Review and author Brian Keene, Greg F. Gifune is the author of numerous short stories, several novels and two short story collections. His work has been published in a wide range of magazines and anthologies all over the world, and has recently garnered interest from Hollywood. His novels include The Bleeding Season, Deep Night, Saying Uncle, A View From The Lake, Night Work, Drago Descending, Blood In Electric Blue and Dominion.
Along with his short story collections, Down To Sleep and Heretics, his work has been nominated for numerous awards and is consistently praised by readers and critics alike across the globe. For seven years he was Editor-in-Chief of Thievin' Kitty Publications, publishers of the acclaimed fiction magazines The Edge: Tales of Suspense (1998-2004) and Burning Sky: Adventures in Science Fiction Terror (1998-2003).
Greg and Shane have had a very successful run of more than a decade as author and editor. Greg's involvement as an author at DarkFuse (and Shane's former company, Delirium Books) proceeded his hiring as senior editor at DarkFuse last year.
Shane Staley, the managing publisher of DarkFuse, had this to say about the signing:
"Greg is at the very top of dark fiction authors being published today and I'm proud to have negotiated this extension which will bring DarkFuse readers many more works by Greg. This signing will begin our second decade together as editor and author, and it's been an honor to work with such a great talent. I'm as excited as ever to be working with Greg."
The new deal includes three original novels to be published in the next three years (2013, 2014, 2015), one per year and six original novellas to be published in the next three years (2013, 2014, 2015), two per year.
This is great news all around. I have really enjoyed the Gifune novellas I've read to date (most recently The Rain Dancers, and HorrorTalk reviewer Gabino Iglesias put his Dreams the Ragman as one of the top 10 horror books of 2011 and raved about Apartment Seven in his review. It seems the praise Gifune is getting is deserved and I know I'm not the only one looking forward to more of his work.
