Riordan And Gooden Take Us Into The Killbox

American Gothic Press has sent over some preview pages for their new independent series Killbox by Tom Riordan and Nathan Gooden. The book ships on Wednesday and and tells of a brutal reality competition where a bartender named Timothy Choir tries to be the last man standing to win the money to save his dying son.

"[The killbox] is not broadcast on television, and the vast majority of the inhabitants of this near-future are completely unaware of its existence; in fact, great pains are gone through to ensure its secrecy," says first-time writer Riordan. "It's not a spectacle; it's gritty, dark, forbidden, and hidden."

Below is a preview of the cover and first six pages of Killbox #1.
