NOTE: Riley no longer has a working relationship with Permuted Press. They retain audio rights to a novel but refuse to support or promote it. They finally reverted all other rights due to the enormous help of public pressure from Brian Keene in June 2017. http://thehorrorshowbk.projectentertainment.libsynpro.com/mark-waid-smash-the-horror-show-with-brian-keene-ep-116

Do not buy this novel (as I will not receive any compensation), and avoid this press at all costs.
