Hell on earth is only one click of a mouse away in acclaimed writer Benjamin Percy’s terrifying new horror novel.
The Dark Net is real. An anonymous and often criminal arena that exists in the secret, far reaches of the Web, some use it to manage Bitcoins, pirate movies and music, or traffic in drugs and stolen goods. And now, an ancient darkness is gathering there as well. These demons are threatening to spread virally into the real world unless they can be stopped by members of a ragtag crew. Read more…

The Dark Net releases August 1st, and the reviews are starting to roll in. Shelf Awareness says, “For non-technophilic readers who have never heard of the dark web, Silk Road or TOR, Percy provides brief, entertaining explanations reminiscent of Michael Crichton’s paranoiac invocations of popular science,” and Library Journal says, “Percy turns in a fast-paced thriller with crisp, honest dialogue and well-imagined characters. His premise is fanciful yet anchored in believability.”
Ben is taking over the 007 franchise, writing the James Bond comic series for Dynamite Entertainment. Issue #1 releases on March 1st. Click here to read the press release.
Here is some early praise for Ben’s next novel, The Dark Net (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2017) from Dean Koontz: “Written in vivid, often lyrical prose, but with exhilarating comic-book energy, THE DARK NET is a megawatt defibrillator to the reader’s heart. Quirky but very human characters confront an explosive emergence of the supernatural into our world, in this imaginative, spooky, swiftly paced tale threaded through with dark humor.”
Green Arrow Rebirth and Green Arrow Issue #1 have both gone into a second printing. Thank you, retailers and readers. Read more here.
