Welcome to the website of award-winning author David B. Coe. Here you can learn about David’s novels, read sample chapters and free short stories, check in with his blog, and find information on his upcoming events and appearances.
SPELL BLIND, the first novel in The Case Files of Justis Fearsson, the new contemporary urban fantasy series David is writing for Baen Books, is scheduled for release on January 6, 2015. The second book in the series, HIS FATHER’S EYES, will be out in the summer of 2015, and the third volume, as yet untitled, is already in the works. The books are supernatural detective novels — think “The Wolfman” meets “Jekyll and Hyde” meets “Sam Spade. ” Each installment stands alone as a mystery/adventure, although the author suggests reading them in order. The art work on the jacket is by Alan Pollack, who has done a terrific job capturing the feel of the book and giving the novel a pulpy feel.
DEAD MAN’S REACH, the fourth novel in the Thieftaker Chronicles, a historical urban fantasy David is writing under the name D.B. Jackson, will be released by Tor Books in July 2015. Once again, the cover art, by the extraordinary Chris McGrath, is spectacular, and for those of you keeping track of the series, the action in this newest volume coincides with the Boston Massacre. Fun stuff.
And A PLUNDER OF SOULS, the third novel in the series, will be re-issued in paperback in June. The first two volumes, THIEFTAKER and THIEVES’ QUARRY, are currently available in all formats, including audiobook. For more information on the Thieftaker books, please visit the D.B. Jackson website.
