Herbert isnt like other children his age. He isnt like the academic elite, the geeky children who get all the grades and are adored by their teachers. He isnt like the extroverts, the socially adept and popular kids who never want for anything and always have a shoulder to cry on. And... he isnt like the bullies, the ones who taunt and beat him on a daily basis. Herbert isnt like any of his peers, or indeed anyone he knows. The person Herbert identifies with the most, the person he idolizes and yearns to be, is The Butcher, a brutal and prolific serial killer.Following another beating by the kids he despises at a school he hates, Herbert returns home to his inconspicuous existence with his solitary, silent, and coldhearted father. But life for Herbert is about to change. The shackles that have held him to mediocrity and anonymity are about to be broken. Not only does Herbert discover his father has died, but on further examination, he also discovers his dad was The Butcher, the very man whom everyone had feared and whom he had worshipped.Life had been cruel to his father and death had been cruel to his legend, but Herbert decides that he will carry on his fathers name. He will be the man in the shadows, the thing that everyone fears. He will become The Butcher.Skyhorse Publishing, under our Night Shade and Talos imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of titles for readers interested in science fiction (space opera, time travel, hard SF, alien invasion, near-future dystopia), fantasy (grimdark, sword and sorcery, contemporary urban fantasy, steampunk, alternative history), and horror (zombies, vampires, and the occult and supernatural), and much more.
