New from Down & Out Books: BISHOP RIDER LIVES edited by Hector Acosta and Beau Johnson

TAMPA, Fla. - June 3, 2024 - PRLog -- Down & Out Books is pleased to announce that BISHOP RIDER LIVES; An Anthology of Retribution edited by Hector Acosta and Beau Johnson, has been published on June 3, 2024 in trade paperback and ebook formats.


Blood-soaked and torso-based, Bishop Rider became THE MAN WHO WOULD NOT STOP.  His singular mission, his only goal, a type of carnage most would turn from. The men who destroy Rider's family, the type of monsters they are, resulting in a decades-long war with Rider vowing to not only burn them, but anyone like them. All things end, however, and Bishop Rider, he proves no exception, succumbing to the cancer that would eventually end him.

But life, it sometimes finds a way.

The fifteen stories in this anthology both brand new tales and written by some of the biggest names working in crime fiction and horror today. Each tale pulled from between the pages of A Better Kind of Hate, The Big Machine Eats, All of Them To Burn, Brand New Dark, and Old Man Rider.

Come for the rage, stay for the dismemberment. See how a dead man makes them burn.

With stories by James D.F. Hannah, S.A. Cosby, Mark Rapacz, Peter O'Keefe, Mary Thorson, Tom Leins, Meagan Lucas, Jay Stringer, Elford Alley, Nick Kolakowski, Manny Torres, Paul J. Garth, Rob Hart, Laurel Hightower, and Rob D. Smith. Foreword by Hector Acosta.

Advance praise for BISHOP RIDER LIVES …

"The stories in this lean anthology are brutal and cathartic, but remain altogether human. What else can I say? Every writer kills in this book." —Johnny Shaw, author of Big Maria and The Southland

"These stories will stay with you long after the last scumbag hangs from his own viscera. Yet amid all the carnage, you may feel these tales tugging at your heartstrings…" —C.W. Blackwell, author of Hard Mountain Clay

"Bishop Rider Lives is both addictive and chock full of talent whose tales will leave readers ripping through pages and never wanting Bishop Rider's brand of justice to stop. Five stars." —Shannon Kirk, international bestselling author of Method 15/33
