MEDALLION PRESS CELEBRATES GREGORY LAMBERSON’S NEW NOVEL ‘TORTURED SPIRITS’ WITH THE FREE ILLUSTRATED DOWNLOAD ‘THE JAKE HELMAN FILES: AFTERLIFE PROJECT’
With the official October publication of Tortured Spirits, Book Four of Gregory Lamberson’s supernatural action series the Jake Helman Files, publisher Medallion Press is offering readers a free download, The Jake Helman Files: Afterlife Project, featuring 24 illustrations by acclaimed fantasy artist Kyle Brice.
Tortured Spirits is now available as a trade paperback and an e-book from Medallion, and as a downloadable audio book from Audible.com. The novel continues storylines from Lamberson’s previous books in the series (Personal Demons, winner of the IPPY Gold Medal for Horror; Desperate Souls; and Cosmic Forces, a Bram Stoker Award finalist). In this entry, private investigator Helman journeys to a Caribbean island to save the soul of a friend who was previously transformed into a raven. On Pavot Island Helman battles a ruthless dictator who employs a drug called Black Magic, and the “zonbies” it produces, to rule the population.
“Tortured Spirits is my best novel so far,” says Lamberson. “I wanted it to read like a James Bond story jacked with zombie action, and I ratcheted up the sex and violence to meet that goal. It’s my longest book to date – 105,000 words – with the biggest canvas and cast of characters I’ve used.”
The Jake Helman Files: Afterlife Project, was conceived by Lamberson and Medallion as a thank you to readers of the series and as an overview for new readers. The illustrated PDF features renderings of key characters, creatures, locations, and props from the series, captioned by Helman himself and introduced by the author. To download the file, readers must visit Medallion’s website and click on the “downloads” tab at the bottom of any Jake Helman novel page.
Tortured Spirits is Lamberson’s third book published this year, preceded by the zombie novella Carnage Road and the werewolf novel The Frenzy War. 2013 will see the publication of his apocalyptic novel The Julian Year, the first TREEbook (Timed Reading Experience E-book), employing time triggers and branching technology, as well as the fifth Helman novel, Storm Demon. Lamberson will be a guest at New York Comic Con October 11th – 14th, and helps run Buffalo Screams Horror Film Festival October 17th – 21st.
