BRAND NEW EXCLUSIVE LIMITED EDITION SIGNED NOVELLA FROM TOM PICCIRILLI: “ALL YOU DESPISE”
Shroud Publishing is proud to announce the upcoming publication of a new novella by one of the most respected and dynamic voices in the horror and suspense genres: Tom Piccirilli.
In All You Despise, a signed, illustrated, limited edition hardcover, Piccirilli’s characteristically lean prose grimly illustrates the high price of redemption and the violent limits of brotherly love.
When a nameless man awakens to find his blood-spattered brother passed out in his trailer it sets off a chain of painful, hard-hitting events that tests family loyalty and shows the savage impact of a father’s dark legacy. Fast-paced and packing a visceral punch, All You Despise will keep the reader anxiously turning pages all the way to its unexpected conclusion.
This exclusive offering from Shroud Publishing features a special introduction penned by Bram Stoker-winning author Brian Keene and stunning illustrations by veteran illustrator Alex McVey. Both contributors will also sign this special limited edition alongside the author.
Limited to only 500 copies and available only from Shroud Publishing, All You Despise will be a unique addition to your quality book collection.
All You Despise will be priced to move at only $29.99. However, if you pre-order now, you can get it for a special reduced rate of only $24.99.
At this price, supplies will definitely not last.
