About the books:

THE MERCY OF THE TIDE | Longlisted for the Bram Stoker Award

Riptide, Oregon, 1983. A sleepy coastal town, where crime usually consists of underage drinking down at a Wolf Point bonfire. But then strange things start happening—a human skeleton is unearthed in a local park and mutilated animals begin appearing, seemingly sacrificed, on the town’s beaches. The Mercy of the Tide follows four people drawn irrevocably together by a recent tragedy as they do their best to reclaim their lives—leading them all to a discovery that will change them and their town forever.

SMOKE CITY | 2019 IPPY Award Silver Medalist, 2019 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award Silver Winner, Powell's Books Best Fiction of 2018

Marvin Deitz, the guilt-ridden reincarnation of Joan of Arc’s executioner, has just seen a woman on a Los Angeles talk show claiming to be Joan, and absolution seems closer than it’s ever been . . . When Marvin heads to Los Angeles to locate the woman, he’s picked up hitchhiking by Mike Vale, a self-destructive alcoholic painter traveling to his ex-wife’s funeral. As they travel through a California landscape populated with “smokes” (ghostly apparitions that’ve begun appearing in the SW), each seeks absolution in his own way. Book Page

ROAD SEVEN | IPPY Bronze Medal Winner

Road Seven follows disgraced cryptozoologist Mark Sandoval—resolutely arrogant, covered head to foot in precise geometric scarring, and still marginally famous after Hollywood made an Oscar-winner based off his memoir years before—who has been strongly advised by his lawyer to leave the country following a drunken and potentially fatal hit and run. When a woman sends Sandoval grainy footage of what appears to be a unicorn, he quickly hires an assistant and the two head off to the woman's farm in Hvíldarland, a tiny, remote island off the coast of Iceland. When they arrive on the island and discover that both a military base and the surrounding álagablettur, the nearby woods, are teeming with strangeness and secrets, they begin to realize that a supposed unicorn sighting is the least of their worries. Road Seven will mark the third of Rosson’s novels to be published by Meerkat Press.  Book Page
