Halloween is the perfect time for a ghost story:

The dead rise, and only the dead can rock them back to sleep...but sometimes it falls to the living to do what the dead cannot.

Elton Burlock's done his time. Twenty-six years for a terribl

e murder. Some of those years were hard, some easy. On the outside, he takes the only job he can find - the custodian of a local cemetery. A simple job, keeping the grass the dead a haircut.

But there are three black angels in the cemetery: a little girl's ghost that roams the night...and two women, one a vision in white, one a nightmare in black.

When the killing starts, who can rock the restless dead back to sleep? Who but Elton? Elton, custodian of the dead, but the gatekeeper, too. The keeper of this world and the next.

The dead are awake. The little girl is free of the earth. But there are no lullabies for the dead and if he's going to live, Elton's going to have to give her what she wants.

Then, maybe, he can find peace for them both - in the grave or out.

Happy Halloween from Grand Mal Press!

Benny tries to ignore the payment-overdue messages he keeps getting from "Forget What?," a memory removal company. Benny’s a slacker, after all, and couldn’t pay them even if he wanted to. Then people start trying to kill him, and his life suddenly depends on finding out what memories he has forgotten. Benny relies on his wits, latent skills, and new friends as he investigates his own past; delving deeper and deeper into the underworld of criminals, bad cops, and shady news organizations, all with their own reasons for wanting him to remain ignorant or die.

Walking Shadow is a future-noir science fiction mystery novel with action, humor, suspense, smart dialogue, and a driving first person narrative.


Here's a fascinating twist on the murder mystery. Benny is addicted to forgets, but now his life depends on remembering what he forgot about the judge's killing. In a warped future Chicago, he has to thread his way though a maze of double and triple-crosses, with crooked cops and underground criminals all out to get him. What really makes it memorable is Benny's unique voice, a wry and witty tone of noir. --Lois Tilton Short fiction reviewer for Locus Magazine

Johns' novel entertains while asking big questions--how much can you forget and still be you? And how much would you be willing to forget to be someone else? Fun and full of ideas. --Maureen McHugh Author of After the Apocalypse.

In a cross between Raymond Chandler and Philip K Dick, Johns expertly explores themes of identity and morality. He has built a splendid dystopian Chicago -- not quite what we know -- in this thrilling noir speculation. As his protagonist weaves his way through his own past and an askew future Chicago, the reader must untangle this wicked and intricate plot. -- Paulo Melko author of "The Walls of the Universe" and "Broken Universe"

In WALKING SHADOW, his accomplished first novel, Clifford Royal Johns spins the amnesia plot like a top. As the mysteries twirl, hit men, cops, reporters, and a variety of low-lifes and no-lifes haunt Benjamin Khan, an unlikely hero with enough secrets to fill a trilogy. With a sly sense of humor and a flair for oddball characterization, Johns has crafted a cross-genre debut that will please fans of both science fiction and crime fiction. --James Patrick Kelly, winner of the Hugo, Nebula and Locus awards.
