THE CAL WILD CHRONICLES by GENE O’NEILL
Starting this fall, Written Backwards will release The Cal Wild Chronicles, a four-book illustrated post-apocalyptic series of novels by Gene O’Neill. This is a highly anticipated trade paperback release of what some consider Gene’s magnum opus, a collection of science fiction, fantasy and horror that spans 30 years of his writing endeavors.
The spines of each book will work together to create a unique image for your bookshelves, and both the front and back covers, when placed side-by-side-by-side-by-side, will create additional panoramic images. Each book will include at least 10 black-and-white illustrations (artist to be announced soon), and each book will matte finish covers.
THE CONFESSIONS OF ST. ZACH, the first in the series, will be released around October/November 2015, and will include an introduction by John R. Little. This will be closely followed by THE BURDEN OF INDIGO around January/February 2016, which will include an introduction by Horror Writers Association president Lisa Morton. THE NEAR FUTURE will be released around April/May later in the year, and will include an introduction by Meghan Arcuri. Wrapping up the series will be THE FAR FUTURE around July/August 2016, which will include an introduction by Scott Edelman.
