The folks at Fantasy Faction asked the editors at many of the top genre fiction publishers to pick the top five books they’re most excited about bringing out in 2012. Angry Robot skirted the issue of having to pick favorites by choosing five of its novels with interesting stories about them. They highlighted Adam Christopher’s Empire State, Chuck Wendig’s Blackbirds, Anne Lyle’s The Alchemist of Souls, Mike Shevdon’s Strangeness & Charm, and my Carpathia.
About Carpathia, Angry Robot wrote:
April 2012 sees the centenary of the sinking of the Titanic, and the subsequent rescue of the survivors on the RMS Carpathia. Interestingly, the Carpathian mountains are the ones that surround Transylvania. Forbeck’s book posits the question – what if the survivors of the Titanic were rescued by the Carpathia only to find it is inhabited by blood-sucking fiends? (Vampires, in this case, not bankers). Pure B-Movie thrills, where the lucky ones went down with the ship…
Look for Carpathia on shelves in March, just ahead of the 100th anniversary of the loss of the Titanic.
