Ring Shout by P. Djèlí Clark

(0 reviews)
9.99 USD
Nebula, Locus, and Alex Award-winner P. Djèlí Clark returns with Ring Shout, a dark fantasy historical novella that gives a supernatural twist to the Ku Klux Klan's reign of terror

D. W. Griffith is a sorcerer, and The Birth of a Nation is a spell that drew upon the darkest thoughts and wishes from the heart of America. Now, rising in power and prominence, the Klan has a plot to unleash Hell on Earth.

Luckily, Maryse Boudreaux has a magic sword and a head full of tales. When she's not running bootleg whiskey through Prohibition Georgia, she's fighting monsters she calls "Ku Kluxes." She's damn good at it, too. But to confront this ongoing evil, she must journey between worlds to face otherworldly nightmares—and her own demons. Together with a foul-mouthed sharpshooter and a Harlem Hellfighter, Maryse sets out to save a world from the hate that would consume it.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.



Praise for this book

“Ring Shout is a fearless punch to the heart and head! Fantasy, hellacious action, and complex characters along with an unflinching look at the terrifying nature of racism. Highly recommended!” —Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of V-Wars and Black Panther: DoomWar

For The Black God's Drums

Nominated for the Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy, and Locus Awards for Best Novella



“A sinewy mosaic of Haitian sky pirates, wily street urchins, and orisha magic. Beguiling and bombastic!” —Scott Westerfeld, New York Times bestselling author

“Clark’s story bleeds with style, elaborate language, and unforgettable characters.”—Daniel H. Wilson, bestselling author of Robopocalypse

“A mesmerizing, sprawling alternate history brimming with authenticity and voice. You'll be bitterly disappointed when it's over. Clark's novella will leave you ravenous for more.” —Justina Ireland, author of Dread Nation

“The language and setting is so authentic you'll taste the gumbo.” —Tade Thompson, author of the Nommo Award-winning Rosewater

“Clark has proven time and again that he’s a talent to watch, and this latest offering cements him as one of the best new fantasy authors around.” —Troy L. Wiggins, executive editor of FIYAH Magazine

“Clark masterfully rewrites history in this spellbinding post-Civil War fantasy…. This story is thrillingly original and will enthrall fans of alternate histories.”— Publishers Weekly (starred review)

For The Haunting of Tram Car 015

"A zippy, wonderful romp, and it's made me want to seek out everything P. Djèlí Clark has written in this setting.”—NPR.com

“P. Djeli Clark once again blends his brilliant imagination with a thoughtful and complex historical analysis — not to mention plenty of heart.” —Daniel José Older, bestsellig author

“Utterly delightful, with a sly wit and a deep and satisfying take on alternate history.” —Kate Elliott, Nebula and World Fantasy Award-nominated author

“A witty, political, magical visit to an alternate 1912 Cairo suffused with richly imagined sights, tastes, and a dash of bureaucracy. Forget the Ministry of Magic; you want to be there when the agents of the Ministry of Alchemy, Enchantments and Supernatural Entities get to work on a case.” —Nebula and Sturgeon Award-winning author Sarah Pinsker

“Fast-acting and fabulous! With all-encompassing craft, Clark shares the story of an investigation in which his heroes’ efforts and Cairo's cosmopolitan nature work in sync to save the day.”—James Tiptree Jr. Award winner Nisi Shawl, author of Everfair

“An Egypt full of airships, hauntings, and djinn, The Haunting of Tram Car 015 is a twist on the classic ghost story as only P. Djeli Clark can do. A slow boil of layered story-telling and a fully realized world (that fans of The Wind-Up Girl can appreciate), P. Djeli Clark again makes the case that he’s not just a rising star, but an already dawning light.”—Maurice Broaddus, author of Buffalo Soldier
