Camel Press Releases Mark Everett Stone’s Debut Novel about a Super-Agent and Supernatural Evil
Camel Press announces the release of Things to Do in Denver When You’re Un-Dead, by Mark Everett Stone, an urban fantasy about a super-agent assigned to keep the supernatural world at bay.

BriefingWire.com, 7/15/2011 - Seattle, WA.—Camel Press is proud to announce the release of Things to Do in Denver When You’re Un-Dead (ISBN: 978-1-60381-859-9, $15.95, 318 pp.), by Mark Everett Stone, an urban fantasy about a top-secret government super-agent assigned to keep the most dangerous denizens of the supernatural world at bay.

“I have really enjoyed reading this book,” writes Michele Herbert of Fantasy Book Review. “The story could just be one of guns, blood and guts and magic, but … Mark Everett Stone has made these characters seem real.”

“This is not a story for the faint of heart or stomach, nor for those wanting a plot with any connection to reality,” writes Gordon Long of TCM Reviews. “Personally, I’m really looking forward to the promised sequel.”

For ten years Kal Hakala has been the Bureau of Supernatural Investigation’s top man, the longest surviving agent in its blood-soaked history. The World At Large has no idea that The World Under exists. And its vampires, demons, zombies, and mythic monsters are growing increasingly restless. In all Kal’s time with the Bureau, there has been no case he couldn’t crack, no monster he couldn’t rub out. Then a plague of zombies comes to Denver, along with a vicious homicidal maniac dubbed The Organ Donor. A childhood encounter with a legendary monster has left Kal with an endless supply of rage and hatred for all things Supernatural. But now the target is on his forehead, and these mythical bad guys put up a good fight. The Bureau has some aces of its own—a few magicians and a cyber-ghost. Unfortunately Kal is a perennial loner ... And the World Under is wise to His tricks.

“I wanted to write something set in the modern world that had the kind of fast-paced quality of an Indiana Jones movie,” says first-time novelist Stone, “but with a darker edge. The idea of a bureau that stood as a defense against things-that-go-bump-in-the-night comes from those people, military and otherwise, who stand ready to protect us all from threats that tear at the fabric of our comfortable lives. I aimed for an interesting blend of The Untouchables and the X-Files.”

Born in Helsinki, Finland, Mark Everett Stone arrived in the U.S. at a young age and promptly dove into the world of the fantastic. After starting at age seven with the Iliad and the Odyssey, he moved on to Norse Mythology, Tolkien and Heinlein. In college Mark majored in Journalism and minored in English. Mark is working on his next book, The Judas Line, while his wife, Brandie, keeps him and their two sons in check. You can find Mark on the Web at markeverettstone.com.
