Hello, friends of Afterbirth Books. I have good news…and bad news. Which would you like first? How about some good news:
We are announcing the release of Sam Pink’s Frowns Need Friends Too! This collection of short prose/poetry is amazing, bizarre, engaging, and definitely worth checking out. Imagine choosing from such pieces as "I Heart Unending Paranoia," "Because You Know You're Avoiding Going Somewhere But Don't Even Know Where Yet," and "I'm Not Going To Change My Clothes Today." With his unique perspective on urban life, I think you will agree Sam is definitely a new force in the literary world.
Now for the bad news. We are going to have to close up shop here at Afterbirth. A lot of personal reasons have led to this very difficult decision. I hope you have enjoyed our titles, and it seems they have expanded further the bizarro genre. Now the torch must be taken up by others.
But more good news: most of our books will remain in print, and even when you can no longer order here, you will be able to find them at Amazon.com or Horror-Mall.com! Our authors will still be putting out material in a variety of places, and you can count on finding their backlist titles from us.
More good news! We will be finishing up our publishing with three more titles over the next several months. David Agranoff’s Hunting the Moon Tribe and Bradley Sands’ Disappointing Sophomoric Effort will be out to you. Also, I’m sure you have been anticipating The Walri Project, edited by Kevin Donihe—and it has grown to include MORE authors and stories for your reading pleasure! We’ll let you know when all three of these are available.
So, it’s not all bad news. Hang on with us for our final splash!
