The cult monster-hunting reporter returns for Moonstone Books’ upcoming Kickstarter campaign
Moonstone Books will publish a graphic novel anthology for the 50th anniversary of Kolchak: The Night Stalker, which began in 1972 as a TV movie starring Darren McGavin as the title monster-hunting reporter and later a TV series that became a cult classic that famously inspired X-Files creator Chris Carter.
Kolchak: The Night Stalker 50th Anniversary Graphic Novel will contain 10 all-new contributions from master storytellers such as Jonathan Maberry (V-Wars), Peter David (The Incredible Hulk), Kim Newman (Anno Dracula), and more, with an introduction by Richard Christian Matheson, the bestselling horror writer and son of Richard Matheson, who penned the original TV movie and its TV movie sequel The Night Strangler. An essay on the 50th anniversary from Mark Dawidziak, the author of The Nightstalker Companion, will be included, along with a retrospective of Moonstone Book’s massive Kolchak publication history from publisher Joe Gentile.
Dead Jack and the Pandemonium Device by James Aquilone returns to bookstores on January 23, 2018, with a brand-new cover and revised and updated text via Curiosity Quills Press. And here at Geeks Of Doom, we have an exclusive reveal of the full cover, along with an excerpt from the novel — check it all out here below and be sure to pre-order the book now!
Dead Jack and the Pandemonium Device kicks off a wild and irreverent fantasy/horror series following the exploits of a zombie detective and his homunculus frenemy. In the fast-paced novel, the drug-addicted zombie detective and his shapeshifting sidekick battle and outsmart supernatural creatures, from tough-guy leprechauns to sex-obsessed shark women and insane bat gods, in a hellish, alternate New York City of the 1940s. You can read our full review of the book from its initial release here.

By James Aquilone
Release date: November 19, 2016
What’s better than a zombie novel? How about a zombie novel about an undead, foul-mouthed, junkie private eye, his homunculus sidekick, Oswald, and their outlandish adventures through the otherworldly Pandemonium? I’d say that’d do it! I first discovered the Dead Jack and the Pandemonium Device Kickstarter via John Denardo, the former head of SF Signal — and I’m glad I did. Written by James Aquilone, this is not your typical supernatural romp.
Are you ready for a strange tale featuring a zombie detective and his homunculus partner? What if I told you that the two solve crimes in a city that can be described as “1940s New York City with Krakens and Unicorns?” If this piques your interest as it has mine, then you need to check out James Aquilone’s Kickstarter campaign for his new novel Dead Jack and the Pandemonium Device.
