After a very successful launch at World Horror, General Slocum's Gold is finally available to order directly from the publisher's website.

It will be available soon from the usual online booksellers too, but that's taking a while, so if you want it now now now, ordering direct from Burning Effigy Press is your best bet.

And now, some blurbs to whip you into a frenzy!

"General Slocum's Gold is an enthralling dark adventure yarn full of heart and adrenalin and magic. Kaufmann's prose has never been better! Lose yourself in this story." - Brian Keene, author of Ghoul and The Conqueror Worms

"The plot of General Slocum's Gold is so smart and wildly original that it crackles, but the real joy of this story is its emotional heart, where one man's dreams are also his nightmares, and both are gaining fast." - Sarah Langan, author of The Keeper and The Missing

"Kaufmann is in touch with a great tradition of adventure stories. He keeps the energy level high and delivers authentic thrills, all the while staying true to his very human characters." - David Wellington, author of Monster Island and 13 Bullets
