Seventh Star Press Acquires H. David Blalock's New Urban Fantasy Series,
Seventh Star Press is proud to announce the acquisition of The Angelkiller
Triad, a provocative new urban fantasy series, as H. David Blalock becomes
a member of the publishing company's growing family of authors.
The acquisition comes right on the heels of the addition of D.A Adams'
fantasy series, The Brotherhood of Dwarves, and follows a strong run of
releases that has seen titles such as Jackie Gamber's Redheart (YA
fantasy) and Steven Shrewsbury's Thrall (heroic fantasy) meet with a very
warm reception from reviewers and readers alike. It is yet another strong
testament to Seventh Star Press's committment to releasing quality titles
exhibiting many facets of speculative fiction.
H. David Blalock commented on his recent partnership with SSP. "I am
excited about doing the Angelkiller series with Seventh Star, and honored
to be in such talented company. I just hope I can keep up with this
The first book introduces Jonah Mason, the oldest, and most experienced of
the Angelkillers, an elite force in the Army of Light. They are fighting
an ancient war, one in which the Darkness achieved a great triumph long
ago that has had profound influence on the fabric of life as we know it.
It is the simple answer as to why bad things happen to good people. The
great battle may have been lost, but the war continues in a modern age,
pitting Jonah against the Enemy in a way even he had never faced. A
provocative mixture of the supernatural and technological, Angelkiller is
a very special, thought-provoking tale, one that shines forth in the upper
realms of urban fantasy literature.
Based out of the Memphis area, H. David Blalock has an impressive writing
career of 35 years and counting that has achieved numerous publishing
credits in print and online mediums. He is most known for his fantasy
novel Ascendant (Sam's Dot Publishing), which was the basis for a twenty
minute short film produced in 2010 that featured former WWE wrestler Al
Snow. The sequel to Ascendant, Emperor (Sam's Dot Publishing), was
released in March of 2011. David is also the founder of Imagicopter, an
author-driven organization that creates an array of event opportunities
for small press authors and artists, while also publishing the
highly-regarded Imagyro magazine.
