Posted by on Dec 27, 2007

Excellent news reaches us that Screaming Dreams Press in the UK has signed and sealed a deal to release paperback editions of all Gerlach novels. The first release will be LAKE MOUNTAIN early in 2008. Here’s what Screaming Dreams editor, Steve Upham, had to say in a recent email newsletter:

I’ve updated the What’s New page to include a brief announcement regarding the Steve Gerlach novels. Some of you may already be aware of this info as the deal has been in progress for a while, but I’m only just getting around to making the news public now.For those of you who may not be familiar with Steve’s work, he is one of of Australia’s foremost dark thriller writers and has released some wonderful novels through Bloodletting Press in the US. I look forward to working with him on these titles.The first book to be released will be LAKE MOUNTAIN and is sheduled to be published early in 2008. I will add further details and upload a dedicated page for this book in due course.

The dedicated page for LAKE MOUNTAIN is now online and can be found at: http://www.screamingdreams.com/index.html?lang=en-uk&target=d23.html. Screaming Dreams is committed to releasing paperback editions all of the Gerlach novels in the next few years, and they will be widely available through the publisher’s website, Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com. Brilliant!

Bloodletting Press to announce THE NOCTURNE US edition!

It’s yet to be announced, but we’re 100% certain that Bloodletting Press will soon confirm the release date of Gerlach’s hardest-to-find novel, THE NOCTURNE, for an early 2008 release. HUNTING ZOE AND OTHER STORIES is on track for a late 2007 release, and we believe Bloodletting want to follow it up with THE NOCTURNE as soon as possible. More news on this when it breaks, but expect an excellent cover by Vince Natale (artist for the Bloodletting editions of LAKE MOUNTAIN and LOVE LIES DYING) and an introduction by Barry Hoffman.

LAKE MOUNTAIN mention in Aussie Crime Series

Those who like their noir crime novels with an Aussie feel could do no better than to check out the Joe Blake series of Aussie Crime Noir releases. We even spotted this little mention of LAKE MOUNTAIN in the latest Blake book WARNING SHOTS LAST:

Outside the first drops from a storm splattered onto the hot pavement. It was steamy. I could feel the sweat running down the back of my legs. Thunder boomed and shafts of lightning cracked over the city. A water bomber droned overhead as it headed towards Two Rocks to put out a fire started by bored kids who loved to watch the planes at work. I was in a mean mood but I hadn’t completely lost it. I went back inside and took off my holster and locked the Glock in the wall safe along with my collection of early Phantom comics and my signed copy of Steve Gerlach’s Lake Mountain. It was a wise move, the smartest thing I’d done all day.
