Sean Hoade is the author of a thriller, Three for the Money; a literary-historical novel, Darwin’s Dreams; a collection of ill-advised short stories, Inappropriate Behavior; an eerie comedy of manners, Deadtown Abbey; a nonfiction book about zombies in our culture, Zombie School Confidential; a Silver Age science fiction novel, The Act; and a trilogy of novels with the distinction of being the first to portray realistically the rising of a certain Lovecraftian alien-god, Cthulhu Attacks! Upcoming from Hoade is the Tesla Trilogy, about the great inventor fighting enemies both supernatural and despicable; Buddy Holly’s Winter Danse Macabre; and a Phildickian science fiction novel, Patron Saint. He also writes pulp thrillers under the pseudonym Hugo Navikov. So far there is the cryptid thriller Spinosaurus; the Space Military adventures War Thug and War Thug 2; and the deep-diving tale of hunters of bottom-dwelling dinosaurs, Prehistoric Beasts and Where to Fight Them. He also has reintroduced the late-1800s “penny dreadful,” shorter novels featuring lurid violence and other forbidden thrills: the science vs. paranormal tales Nikola Tesla vs. The Daylight Vampires and Nikola Tesla Meets The Shadow Man (these are free-standing stories apart from The Tesla Trilogy); the sordid Lovecraftian Absinthe in Arkham; and tales on the lighter side of cosmic terror, Lovecraft Cackles.
