What Makes Christopher Golden Smile

What makes me smile?

1) My wife and kids and I are all very silly people. The goofier the better, as far as I'm concerned.

2) Songs I loved once upon a time but haven't heard in a while.

3) The Big Bang Theory.

4) Watching the kids I direct in the drama club at my kids' school grow in confidence.

5) Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream.

Of Saints and Shadows by Christopher Golden


OF SAINTS AND SHADOWS by Christopher Golden

Sixteen years after its initial publication, Christopher Golden's very first novel, OF SAINTS AND SHADOWS, returns with a brand new cover and a new introduction by Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire mysteries. Ace books are rolling out the entire Peter Octavian series with new covers, all leading up to the release of a new Octavian novel in 2011.

Of Saints and Shadows, Book One in the Shadow Saga, is a brilliant epic that takes you into the secret world of vampires -- and a secret society sworn to destroy them. Sweeping, sensuous, and shocking, it is a powerful vision of immortality that will hold you in its spell . . . forever.

Talk about books you can sink your teeth into -- This is, hands down, my favorite vampire book series for adults. I am looking forward to re-reading the first four volumes, and I cannot wait to see what happens in the new book.

Here's the publishing schedule:

August 2010 OF SAINTS AND SHADOWS
October 2010 ANGEL SOULS AND DEVIL HEARTS
December 2010 OF MASQUES AND MARTYRS
February 2011 THE GATHERING DARK
April 2011 WAKING NIGHTMARES
