MURDER DRAWS A CROWD by Fredric Brown

We appreciate your patience with this book. We are sending this title to the printer (again!) and hope to have it ready by late February. There’s a LOT of juicy goodness in this 750+ page book and we hope you’ll feel it was worth the wait. Please be aware that the price on publication will be $45, so you can save $5 by preordering at $40.



THE COMPLETE IVY FROST by Donald Wandrei

The final artwork is soon to arrive and here’s a peek at the current design. Final titling is in the works (think “Deco”) as well. No release date at this time, but it’s sure to be another blockbuster. NOTE: this title is part of a 3-book combo of Horror & Detective titles that features an exclusive chapbook. See the Haffner Press homepage for details.


THE MICHAEL GRAY MYSTERIES
by Henry Kuttner & Catherine L. Moore

Nearly everything is in hand to bring this 4-novel omnibus to you. Once we have Fredric Brown’s MURDER DRAWS A CROWD under our belt and out in the wild, this is the next title to go to press. NOTE: this title is part of a 3-book combo of Horror & Detective titles that features an exclusive chapbook. See the Haffner Press homepage for details.
