            This debut horror novel by the author of acclaimed short story collection Monstrous Affections establishes him as a worthy heir to the mantle of Stephen King (National Post). Set in 1911, Eutopia mixes utopian vision, rustic Americana, and pure creepiness. . . . Nickle blends Lit...tle House on the Prairie with distillates of Rosemary's Baby and The X-Files to create a chilling survival-of-the-fittest story (Publishers Weekly). Situated on the edge of the woods and mountains of northern Idaho, the tiny settlement of Eliada is an industrialist's attempt to create heaven on earth. But its secrets are soon to be unveiled, as Jason Thistledown, the sole survivor of a mysterious plague in Montana, and Andrew Waggoner, a black doctor nearly lynched by the KKK, delve beneath the facade of the utopian mill town. What they discover is science warped by ideology-and an unearthly monster that preys on the faith of its own true believers . . . A story of piano-wire suspense, grotesque horrors, and, above all, visceral insight into the race politics of American horror, and how they are bound up with the American project itself. -Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing Praise for David Nickle His stories are dark, wildly imaginative, and deeply compassionate-even when they're laced with righteous anger. -Nathan Ballingrud, author of Wounds David Nickle is Canada's answer to Stephen King. His writing charms even as it slices like a blade between the ribs: sharp, subtle, and never less than devastating. -Helen Marshall, author of Gifts for the One Who Comes After

            The sequel to Eutopia is a nailbiter . . . that is spooky as hell, a critical and sharp demolition of Lovecraft's own romanticization of eugenics (Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing). In Eutopia, an orphaned farm boy and a black physician came face to face with monsters both human-Americ...an eugenicists-and inhuman-a parasite called the Juke. Volk is another dive into the horrific . . . a dazzling horror novel that's unafraid to ask questions and leave some of them unanswered (Publishers Weekly, starred review). At the dawn of the twentieth century, Dr. Andrew Waggoner and Jason Thistledown made it out of the Idaho town of Eliada alive-but so did the Juke . . . Now, in 1931 Europe, there are those who seek to resurrect the philosophy of the founders of Eliada. Deep in the Bavarian mountains, research has begun on the creature whose seductive poison can be used in the Nazis' quest for a master race. Still struggling with the aftershocks of their encounters with the Juke, Dr. Waggoner has become the head of a secret society in Paris dedicated to the monster's destruction, while Thistledown is a veteran World War I pilot. Drawn back together to fight the evil that is brewing, they will be forced to confront the diabolical plans of those who will stop at nothing to reshape humanity-and the one being capable of destroying it completely . . . The most intellectually provocative horror novel of the twenty-first century. -Toronto Star [Volk] cements David Nickle's reputation as one of the leaders of his generation of writers. -John Langan, award-winning author of The Fisherman

            Brillant, captivant, intrigant et instructif !A la fois roman historique et thriller, 1542 - La colonie maudite s'inspire d'un fait reel aussi fascinant que meconnu: l'expedition Cartier-Roberval. Bien qu'aux prises avec la montee des troubles religieux en France, Francois 1er do...it assurer son emprise en Amerique. Il ordonne donc a Jacques Cartier et au Sieur de Roberval d'aller fonder une colonie en Nouvelle-France. Un etonnant amalgame de catholiques et de protestants, ainsi que de repris de justice et d'aristocrates, s'embarque alors pour une formidable epopee. La Nouvelle-France sera-t-elle catholique ou protestante? Rapidement, des tensions religieuses et sociales eclatent, mettant en peril l'existence meme de la colonie. D'autant plus qu'un cri de rage s'eleve parmi les fiers Iroquois: Aksen Akohren ( Maudits soient les Francais ) Mais le plus grand danger pour la nouvelle colonie est peut-etre la personnalite intransigeante du Sieur de Roberval. Le vieil ami de Francois 1er se revele tellement cynique, imprevisible et imbu de lui-meme, que tous se demandent si un tel homme est apte a gouverner l'Amerique...
