New Book!

Coming next month: SETTING SUNS, an anthology of twilight tales.

A nightmarish funhouse turned deadly. A couple trapped in a futile journey through time. A single baleful eye watching from the deep. An assassin waiting in a snow-covered tree. A pair of soldiers trapped between death and something worse.

These are the tales and terrors of Elizabeth Donald, award-winning author of the Nocturnal Urges vampire mystery series. These stories and more are contained in this volume of terrifying twilight tales.

In that space between evening and nightfall, between consciousness and sleep, the moment when the light fades and the shadows take over...

These are the lands of the Setting Suns.

"The stories in SETTING SUNS are imbued with a haunting lyricism, but frequently there are moments of pure terror that arrive like a devastating punch to the gut. Donald's is one of the strongest and freshest new genre voices out there."
--Bryan Smith, author of House of Blood and Deathbringer

If you ever heard me read "Sisyphus" and liked it, here's your chance to own it. Plus another fourteen stories, some of which have been published before, and others that were written for this volume. SETTING SUNS will be the second release from New Babel Books, and I am very excited about it! Please take a moment to check out both my web site (updated with SETTING SUNS info and the New Babel web site (

Beginning Christmas Day, New Babel will offer preorders of SETTING SUNS at a discount. Only $10.99 for preorder, three dollars off the regular cover price! SETTING SUNS will be released in late January. And yes, for those who have asked. this is a print paperback you can hold in your hands.

I also want to add that I've had the honor of assisting with the editing of New Babel's first release, SWAN SONG. It's coming out Dec. 25, and it's a hell of a book. If you like superheroes, comic books, action-adventure or just trust my judgment (heh), pick up this book. Plus you'll be helping to support the small press, which is always good for karma.

Spread the word, willya?
