The Death of an Author...

For our second act, we at Oxygen Man Books  will be bringing out S. L. Edwards' second collection of short work, entitled The Death of An Author and Other Secret Truths. This collection consists of fourteen stories in S. L.'s inimitable style, dealing with such worthy subjects as Cthulhu and The King In Yellow as only S. L. Edwards can.

The cover and interior artwork will be done by the incomparable Yves Tourigny, whose intense linework has graced the covers of works by Laird Barron, the ongoing comic strip Borkchito (written by Edwards), and some of the anthologies by my previous employer, Planet X Publications.
The picture below is of the Author, drawn by Mr. Tourigny.

I'm sure you understand that making books is a serious and relatively expensive business. Therefore we must ask for your help in producing this volume, which will be issued in hardcover, paperback, and ebooks in several flavors.
Mssrs. Edwards and Tourigny are top-drawer talent and need to be remunerated accordingly. Therefore our goal is a tidy 1K, which will allow us the freedom to create a splendid volume, pay for the advertising and ISBN, and leave a small fund for incidental expenses.

There are four levels available - each can be viewed as a pre-order. You can guarantee yourself a copy of an ebook, a trade paperback, or a deluxe hardcover, or all four. Bear in mind that these prices include shipping costs.

Ebook -- 7.50

Trade Paperback -- 15.00

Deluxe Hardcover -- 25.00

Everything -- 50.00

You can of course donate other amounts. Please indicate what, if any, of these fits your needs. The book is due early 2020.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
