Herein are contained reflections of what, as Saint Paul says, we see in a glass darkly. And as this angle of
incidence is so shadowed, so must be the reflections it derives.
These sixteen stories provide obscure reflections of worlds much like ours yet different. Worlds that grapple with
increasingly confused and distorted realities.
Each reflection so vivid as to become an open doorway where unwary readers might just find themselves stumbling over
the threshold… never to return.

RELEASE by Amelia Mangan with cover art by Boden Steiner.
At the age of sixteen, Stanley Fitzgerald murdered his mother. He hasn’t uttered a word since. Institutionalized for the last twelve years, he spends his days numb and unresponsive, shut away in a dismal, silent world of his own.
Until he meets Marina.
Large bright feline eyes. Long chestnut hair. Rough edges of bitten fingernails. Hands that once murdered an entire family. Marina talks to Stanley. And before long, Stanley talks back.
As their friendship grows, Marina’s influence draws Stanley out of his shell. The doctors, pleased with Stanley’s progress, decide it’s time for his release.
Returning to the isolated Midwestern farmhouse where he grew up, Stanley is determined to start putting the pieces of his broken life back together. He never believes he will see Marina again. Not as long as he lives.
Until, one black and rainy night, Marina appears on Stanley’s doorstep.
“They let me out,” she tells him.
Stanley wants so badly to believe her.
Stanley has no choice but to let her in…
RELEASE is a Gothic fairy tale of love, death, guilt, and madness.
And it will never let you go.
Advance Praise for RELEASE:
“Reading Amelia Mangan’s Release is like being trapped in a slowly sinking ship while icy water rises all around you. It’s creepy, claustrophobic, and disturbingly vivid; I couldn’t put it down.”
—Kelly Braffet, author of Save Yourself and Josie and Jack
“Beautifully written and utterly absorbing, Release is the story of a young man trapped in an insular world of memories and madness. Returning to the rat-infested farmhouse where he grew up, Stanley Fitzgerald settles into a routine. He cooks, he cleans, he listens to the radio. One day fades into the next, but there is a certain comfort in the mundane. A certain hopefulness in the simplicity of his new existence. Then a beguiling young woman shows up at his door and Stanley soon realizes that for a man such as he, there can be only one release.
“Amelia Mangan’s writing is so rich and evocative, the reader will be tempted to race through the pages, but don’t. Release is to be savored, preferably on a moonlit night with a chill in the air.”
—Amanda Stevens, author of The Graveyard Queen series
“Haunting and hard to shake off. Release wraps its chilled fingers around you and doesn’t let go.”
—Kathy Charles, author of John Belushi Is Dead
“Release is the novel you’d get if you put Stephen King and Angela Carter in a room together and got them good and mean drunk. Scary, thrilling, gimlet-eyed, and so sharp you could cut yourself on it, this is a triumph of horror novels, and heralds an exciting new talent in Amelia Mangan.”
—Jessica Alcott, author of Even When You Lie To Me
We’re excited to announce the forthcoming exceptional collection from K.M. Tonso, DARKLING INCIDENCE: Obscure Reflections, coming in September 2015 with cover and interior artwork by the phenomenal Luke Spooner (Carrion House).
“Herein are contained reflections of what, as Saint Paul says, we see in a glass darkly. And as this angle of incidence is so shadowed, so must be the reflections it derives.
These sixteen stories provide obscure reflections of worlds much like ours yet different. Worlds that grapple with increasingly confused and distorted realities.

Nightscape Press is looking for folks interested in joining our promotional team! More specifically we’re looking for the following:
Two Review Coordinators, two Social Media Managers, and one Author Event Coordinator.
Here’s more about what we’re looking for in our promotional team members:
The Nightscape Press Review Coordinators should each have experience with organizing reviews from one end or the other. Reviewers could very well excel in a position of this sort given their experience working from the other end of the gate. Excellent people skills, organizational skills, and professional etiquette is a must.
The Nightscape Press Social Media Managers will be in charge of promotion across the various social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Tumblr, Pinterest, etc.) They will be responsible for maintaining updates on all of our social media pages as well as seeking out new forms and/or providers of social media for NSP to connect with readers and writers. Experience with graphic and layout design are not necessary but would be a definite advantage for any interested applicants.
The Nightscape Press Author Event Coordinator will have experience in setting up author events for signings, conventions, blog tours, or other author events. Like the Review Coordinator position, excellent people skills, organizational skills, and professional etiquette is a must.
Interested parties should email us at email@example.com highlighting your experience in the position you are interested in. Please write your subject line as follows: “Promo App – Reviews” or “Promo App – Social Media” or “Promo App – Events” or if you’re interested in more than one position just put “Promo App.”
These positions will be open until we find the right people to fill them. So, if you think you’ll enjoy working for a premiere quality speculative fiction press and you’re up for one of these jobs, please get in touch with us! Please feel free to spread the word!
