"S. Craig Zahler is certain to become one of the great imaginers of our time." ― Clive Barker

"Whether writing westerns, science fiction, or crime, Zahler (Corpus Chrome, Inc., 2013) always manages to bring something new to the genre. [We fell] completely under Zahler’s spell... A bravura literary performance.” —Booklist, Starred Review

"Zahler’s mean streets are bizarrely mean. But Mean Business is often mordantly funny, too—and not to be missed." Booklist, starred review

From Kirkus Review:
"Zahler tells a gripping story."

“CORPUS CHROME, INC describes one of the weirder post-singularity futures. The characters are very much alive. I was entertained throughout.” —Larry Niven, Hugo & Nebula award winning author

"Zahler's a fabulous story

On October 23rd, 2015, the movie Bone Tomahawk was released. This western I wrote, directed, and co-composed; it features Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Richard Jenkins, and Matthew Fox.

"[A] witty fusion of western, horror and comedy that gallops to its own beat." —NY Times
"Great dialogue, strong characters, and imaginative and memorable kills." —IGN.com

Weird Tales May 1932

The best experience that I’ve had reading the tremendously inconsistent pulp Weird Tales was with this issue from May 1932. Some issues contain more good material than duds (March 1933; March, 1934; December 1935), while others su

Weird Tales March 1932

The single worst pulp magazine that I’ve read to date is the March 1932 issue of Weird Tales. This is a surprising claim since I’ve read an issue of Dusty Ayres Battle Birds (February 1935) and also because what turned me into a

S. Zahler My new science fiction novel Corpus Chrome, Inc. is now widely available in paperback, hardback and kindle editions.

“CORPUS CHROME, INC describes one of the weirder post-singularity futures. The characters are very much alive. I was entertained throughout.” —Larry Niven, multiple Hugo and Nebula award winning author of the Ringworld series

“[We fell] completely under Zahler’s spell, buying into his near-future world and becoming so involved in his characters’ lives that, when the book ends, we are loath to leave these people and their world. A bravura literary performance.” —Dave Pitt, Booklist, Starred Review

“Zahler’s a fabulous story teller...”
—Kurt Russell, star of Escape from New York, Tombstone, Dark Blue, and Death Proof
