Strangeways is the story of ex-soldier Seth Collins as he treks through the haunted frontier of a shadowy old west. Cowboys and werewolves. What more do you need to know?

Changes afoot

Hey folks. Matt Maxwell here. The boss man. The big guy. The head cheese and the cheese honcho.

Some changes afoot, some of them cemented by conversations at the recent APE show, some have just been festering for a long time.

Like the Joker said “If you’re good at something, never do it for free,” and so I’ve taken that to heart. I’m removing most of the MURDER MOON and THE THIRSTY pages from the site. If you want to read the rest of the book, you can go to Amazon or to your local retailer or bug me via email. I’ll be happy to sell you a copy for cover price plus postage (about three-four bucks a book in the continental US.) And for a nickel, I’ll tell you how many orders I’ll get before Christmas.

Hint. It’s a real number between one and negative one.

I’m looking at getting STRANGEWAYS to a proper digital delivery system (ie, *not* putting it up on the web and trying to drum up interest) but deadlines and family demand attention first.


STRANGEWAYS is taking a little break. Yeah, I’m a stinker for stopping in the middle of a scene much less the middle of a story, but them’s the breaks.

After all, it ain’t costing you anything but time.

You’ll all get the word when things get to rolling again.


Here’s your first official preview image. I should have these on cards at Wonder-Con, if you’re a completist.

“But what’s it about?” you ask.
