Davide Mana is hard at work translating and adapting a new series for Raven's Head Press thanks to our good friends at Nero Press and authors Federica Soprani and Vittoria Corella.
1890. The European order had already manifested the seeds of a world war and sees two opposing schools of scientific thought: the British Craftsmen who strive to develop a mechanical society through the use of exoskeleton engineering in order to reinforce the capabilities of workers and soldiers. They have a plan for a "utopian" society located in Eastern Europe known as Meccagenetronica where they develop terrifying man-machine hybrids. In London this triggers a battle without quarter between a mysterious masked vigilante known as Fog, Sergeant Malachy Murphy and the ruthless Baba Yaga, a woman employed for his own sinister purposes by Dr. Anton Morse, the genius behind Meccagenetronica. Also involved in the fight is a young diamond cutter named Mordecai Gerolamus, who is singularly haunted by invisible and disturbing demons, and the aggressive journalist, Catherine "Orlando" Swan and her brother Percy, director of the newspaper where she works.
The books will be short reads and the storyline will develop and grow as new books come out. Raven's Head Press plans to release one book per quarter in 2016.

I know that it seems we go through periods of silence but I can assure you that we're always busy working on new books. And then you get a month like January where we've released three new books. That is the culmination of all the hard work in the background.

Raven's Head Press is proud to present a new author to our lineup in Marco Siena. Our first book of his is titled 3 Under the Moon and it's a dandy.

3 Under the Moon is comprised of three intertwined horror tales that take place under the moon of England. The cast includes werewolves, bungling petty criminals, and mutant law officers who operate outside the realm of normal.

The first story, Yellow Car and Silver Bullets, tells about the meeting between three crooks who chase a mysterious individual named Juan who just may be a werewolf. In I Hate to Go an Italian-American special agent, Ray Konopski, arrives in London to settle a baffling case that leads him to cross paths with Juan. The final story, Tell Him, centers around Harper, a London bobby, who joins together with Konopski to solve a strange case surrounding Juan who just happened to murder him the night before.

The book is available at amazon.con, Barnes & Noble, and fine bookstores everywhere.
