January 2014


Raised in the swamps and pine forests of East Texas, Seth Skorkowsky gravitated to the darker sides of fantasy, preferring horror and pulp heroes over knights in shining armor.

His debut novel, Dämoren, was published in 2014 as book #1 in the Valducan series; it was followed by Hounacier in 2015, and Ibenus in 2016. Seth has also released two sword-and-sorcery rogue collections with his Tales of the Black Raven series.

When not writing, Seth enjoys cheesy movies, tabletop role-playing games, making YouTube videos, and traveling the world with his wife.

I’m very happy to announce that Crossroad Press has edited and re-released Ibenus back on ebook. Paperbacks for the first 3 Valducan books are in the works, so soon we can be back on track after my Ragnarok break-up. I’ll be honest, the months since I left my old publisher haven’t been that easy.  Most of it is all sorted out now.

Enjoyable, action-packed, fun, but also my least favorite in the series so-far. It felt a lot like the same old thing from the previous books.

“What’s this one?” Allan said, holding up a blocky pistol. “Glock,” Matt answered. Allan flipped it over. “How big is the clip for it?” “Magazine,” Matt corrected. “They always call it a clip on the telly.” “So? TV and movies also say that UV hurts vampires like sunlight, too.” Allan frowned. “All right. How much does the magazine hold?” “Seventeen,”
