About the Author
Michael Patrick Hicks is the author of several horror books, including The Resurrectionists, Broken Shells: A Subterranean Horror Novella, and Mass Hysteria. He co-hosts Staring Into The Abyss, a podcast focused on all things horror. His debut novel, Convergence, was an Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Finalist in science fiction. He is a member of the Horror Writers Association. Michael lives in Michigan with his wife and two children. In between compulsively buying books and adding titles that he does not have time for to his Netflix queue, he is hard at work on his next story.

"The Resurrectionists is a stunning achievement ─ an effective historical novel AND a brutal horror story. Salem Hawley is a fantastic protagonist I look forward to following in future stories." - John Hornor Jacobs, author of The Sea Dreams It Is the Sky: A Novella of Cosmic Horror

"Gritty, grand and grotesque, The Resurrectionists is a mind-bending, Lovecraftian myth set in the murky underbelly of post-Revolutionary War Manhattan. It played out in my imagination in a palette of reds and browns like a lush Hammer horror film. Salem Hawley is a riveting avenger, and I'm eager to follow him on further macabre adventures." - Chris Sorensen, author of The Nightmare Room

"As terrifying and action-packed as a slasher flick, but also saturated with literary merit at its core, exploring social issues like racism, classism, and the ramifications of medical experimentation. It was such a fun, provocative read. I can't wait to see what direction he steers the plot in the second book." - Jeremy Hepler, Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of The Boulevard Monster

"A perfect blend of historical and cosmic horror. Hicks has definitely created something special here, simultaneously authentic and otherworldly. Great characterization, vivid descriptions, and a cast of villains that will make your skin crawl." - Tim Meyer, author of The Switch House

"A gritty, grisly historical fiction with poetic prose and plenty of heart and guts. A mesmerizing, cosmic horror tale channeling elements of Lovecraft and Chambers with a dash of Poe. I can't wait for the next chapter!" - Chuck Buda, author of Tourniquet

"Grim, perverse, and written with literary panache, The Resurrectionists sets the bar high for modern authors of Lovecraftian horror. With its mix of Lovecraftian and human monsters, this opening chapter in the Salem Hawley series will delight readers of both cosmic horror and the morbidly beautiful works of Clive Barker." - Glen Krisch, author of Where Darkness Dwells

"A deliciously evil blend of Lovecraft, Martyrs, Frankenstein and Grand-Guignol madness. The concept is bonkers and the gore is unrelenting and off the wall. A hell of a way to kick off what will be a killer series." - Hunter Shea, author of Antarctic Ice Beasts

"With echoes of LaValle's The Ballad of Black Tom, Michael Patrick Hicks's The Resurrectionists conjures a unique and horrifying vision from the void beyond. I can't wait to see where the series goes next." - Todd Keisling, author of The Final Reconciliation and Ugly Little Things

"An intriguing tale of cosmic horror and grave robbing... a very entertaining read and deserves to bring the fiction of Michael Patrick Hicks to a wider audience." - Ginger Nuts of Horror

"I could nearly smell the blood and feel the tentacles reaching for me from the void. The Resurrectionists is a great story on its own, but also serves as a stellar introduction to a series that makes this 'series shy' reader excited for what's to come." - Biblioculus

"One of the best Lovecraftian books I've read in quite some time. Fans of the sub-genre should find this book right up their alley... Michael Patrick Hicks captures the sense of helplessness, dread, and the smallness of Man in the universe very well." - Real Dead Reviews
