Back to Frank Black (2012)

In 1996, a groundbreaking television drama debuted on the Fox network. Created by Chris Carter, Millennium tells the story of Frank Black (Lance Henriksen), a legendary forensic profiler gifted with the ability to see into the minds of killers. Through his work as a consultant with the F.B.I. and the mysterious Millennium Group, the series offers a thoughtful exploration of the nature and manifestations of evil in the modern world. Back to Frank Black offers an unprecedented volume of material exploring this landmark series. With forewords from Lance Henriksen and Frank Spotnitz and an introduction by series creator Chris Carter, the collection features interviews with cast and crew as well as in-depth essays analyzing Millennium‘s characters, themes, and enduring legacy. Inspired by the growing movement to return this iconic hero to the screen, Back to Frank Black finds its focus in an incomparable figure of hope: Frank Black. We need him now more than ever.

Columbia & Britannia (2009)

14 September 1766. Prime Minister William Pitt proposes the Columbia Compromise, unifying the Kingdom of Great Britain and her colonies and establishing a framework for North American representation in Parliament. The American War of Independence is over before it begins. This is the history of British North America. This anthology includes nine original stories from six authors. Each delves into events along the timeline between this point of divergence from established history up to the present day, from the uncertainty of early colonial conflicts to the devastation on the front line of the War of Wars, from the politics underpinning a British mission to land a man on the moon to rivalry on the cricket grounds of New England. Accompanied by extensive appendices including maps, biographies, letters and diaries, they collectively describe an alternate history of the sisterhood between a very British North America and Great Britain, the story of Columbia & Britannia.

Way Out West (2009)

Since the Western first dawned as a popular literary and cinematic brand, creative minds have been breaking its seemingly strict boundaries by incorporating elements of other genres. Imagine haunted hangings, interstellar cattle drives, and romance on the Western Trail. Imagine undead lawmen, magic bullets, and cowboys battling aliens. Way Out West explores just this sort of terrain. This unusual anthology presents an array of imaginative short stories that combine the Western with other literary forms. These stories include elements of various disparate genres—mystery, horror, fantasy, speculative fiction, magical realism—but each is undeniably rooted in the great tradition of the Western. The pairings are unexpected and the blending insightful, allowing for a meaningful exploration of the Western’s traditional themes through potent plots, evocative environments, and compelling character conflicts. If the story boldly ventures beyond the boundaries of the traditional Western, you may find yourself Way Out West!

Black Sunshine (2005)

In one instant, all over the world, light itself has ceased to be and mankind has been rendered suddenly and inexplicably blind. Those who survived the first dark days now find themselves in a terrifying realm of chaos and uncertainty, a place filled with familiar dangers made far more dangerous by the omnipresence of eternal night. But there is hope in this dark new world, and it can be heard in those constant voices being broadcast from the nearest radio. Alexander Zelenyj’s Black Sunshine immerses readers in a world turned inside-out. This stunning portrait of a blackened, post-apocalyptic landscape robbed of all light is by turns both nightmarish and unsettlingly convincing. Highlighting the conflicts of modern society and urban sprawl, the novella also offers a surprising and inspirational new take on familiar hero mythologies and superhero fiction.

Can love survive the end of the world?

Dixon, with cover artwork by Elizabeth Abbott. Distinctly different in both tone and style, these two unique tales are joined by a common format and a single haunting theme. In new and unexpected ways, doomsday becomes drama in The Final Curtain, a text ready-made for theaters, actors, and the casual reader alike.
