Stewart Sternberg's "The Ravening"

I was recently given the opportunity to edit Stewart Sternberg's first novel with ESP. I'm sure that the strong characterizations and themes will appeal to all fans of dark fiction as well as the diehard post-apocalyptic/survival horror junkie.

Cons are always over too soon. There are few times in this world where someone like me can stroll into a building and KNOW that the majority of men and women there are my people in the truest sense of the word. At any given moment you can learn strange and interesting facts, such as: Romans know how to dance their asses off to some cool jams, stormtroopers doing "The Robot" during a battle of the Rock Bands are both surreal and hilarious, and there is never enough space in the dealers' room.

Granted, I saw some things that should constitute crimes against humanity in any sane universe, but that aside, I enjoyed every moment I was there with good friends old and new.
