About the author

Joe Schreiber wurde in Michigan geboren. In seinen jungen Jahren war er überaus reiselustig, lebte in Alaska, Wyoming und Nordkalifornien, bevor ihn das Familienleben sesshaft werden ließ. Nunmehr arbeitet Schreiber hauptberuflich als Mathematiklehrer an einer Schule in Palmyra (US-Staat Pennsylvania), ist verheiratet und Vater zweier Söhne.

Andreas Kasprzak, Jahrgang 1972, arbeitet seit dem Abschluss seiner Buchhändlerlehre als Autor, Übersetzer, Herausgeber, Redakteur, Producer und freier Journalist für eine Vielzahl internationaler Buch-, Zeitungs- und Medienverlage. Neben diversen Romanen, Erzählungen und Novellen aus den Genres Thriller, Horror, Historischer Krimi, Fantasy und Science-Fiction stammen diverse Dreh- und Synchronbücher sowie eine Handvoll Kochbücher aus seiner Feder. Am Bekanntesten ist Kasprzak aber wohl als deutscher Stammübersetzer weltbekannter Franchises wie u. a. „Star Wars“, „Warcraft“, „Minecraft“ und „Assassin ́s Creed“. Zu den Künstlern, die er bislang mit viel Lob seitens Leser und Presse ins Deutsche übertragen hat, gehören u. a. internationale Bestsellerautoren wie George R. R. Martin, Patrick Rothfuss, Ursula K. LeGuin, H. P. Lovecraft, Joe Lansdale, Gillian Flynn, Timothy Zahn und Christie Golden. Zusammen mit seiner Familie und lebensgroßen Abbildern von Batman, Kung-Fu Panda, Rayman, Sam Fisher und Thrall dem Orc lebt Andreas Kasprzak mitten im Wiehengebirge, unweit von Bielefeld, das es allen Unkenrufen zum Trotz doch gibt.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Set before the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, this new novel is a thrilling follow-up to Star Wars: Darth Plagueis.
 
It's kill or be killed in the space penitentiary that houses the galaxy’s worst criminals, where convicts face off in gladiatorial combat while an underworld gambling empire reaps the profits of the illicit blood sport. But the newest contender in this savage arena, as demonic to behold as he is deadly to challenge, is fighting for more than just survival. His do-or-die mission, for the dark masters he serves, is to capture the ultimate weapon: an object that will enable the Sith to conquer the galaxy.
 
Sith lords Darth Plagueis and Darth Sidious are determined to possess the prize. And one of the power-hungry duo has his own treacherous plans for it. But first, their fearsome apprentice must take on a bloodthirsty prison warden, a cannibal gang, cutthroat crime lord Jabba the Hutt, and an unspeakable alien horror. No one else could brave such a gauntlet of death and live. But no one else is the dreaded dark-side disciple known as Darth Maul.

Praise for Lockdown
 
“Schreiber . . . was a great choice for this novel, imbuing the story with a dark, foreboding tone while never quite stepping into the horror territories that Death Troopers and Red Harvest took us.”—Jedi News
 
“Fans of the dark side should rejoice. Lockdown delivers a can’t-put-this-down tale of scum and villainy.”—Club Jade
 
“[Lockdown is] an action-packed ride that spins one entertaining chapter after another. The multiple layers of story keeps readers guessing what will happen next and just who will live and who will die. . . . It certainly adds to the character of Darth Maul while matching [Darth] Plagueis’s complexity with sheer fun. . . . Five out of five metal bikinis.”—Roqoo Depot
 
“Somehow, Schreiber is able to skate the line between hard-hitting prison story and the adventure and excitement I love from Star Wars in a way that doesn’t betray either genre. It’s really quite masterful.”—Big Shiny Robot
 
“Lockdown is an exciting, engaging read. . . . It actually lines up beautifully for a sequel, which I, for one, would love to read.”—Coffee with Kenobi
 
“The novel makes The Clone Wars better. It also illuminates The Phantom Menace. I think it’s the hallmark of the best tie-in fiction to resonate throughout other parts of the expanded universe in that way.”—Knights’ Archive
 
“By the fiftieth page, I was hooked. . . . Lockdown is a wonderful ‘antihero’ novel, where it’s just fine to root for the villain, because there are even worse things out there. This book was so fun and entertaining. I’ll have to keep an eye out for more Star Wars books from Schreiber.”—Seattle Geekly


From the Hardcover edition.
“A harrowing, up-all-night read with delicious scares at every turn. Joe Schreiber knows just what terrifies us, and his masterly skills are on full display.”
–Tess Gerritsen, author of The Bone Garden

“One part noir, one part horror, one part the uniquely talented Joe Schreiber. Dark, chilling, scary–I couldn’t put it down.”
–Peter Abrahams, author of Nerve Damage

Escorted from prison under heavy guard, murderous psychopath Frank Snow is scheduled for an emergency brain scan at Tanglewood Memorial Hospital, an institution that is closing its doors after one final night of operation. But Snow has something far more terrifying planned. And once the lights go out, a fiendish game of hide-and-seek begins.

Alone in the dark with a homicidal madman who knows their fears, their secrets, and their every move, MRI technician Mike Hughes, his wife and child, and the other unlucky souls trapped in the hospital have no choice but to duel with the devil incarnate. If they play by their stalker’s twisted rules, some of them might just survive. But there’s more to Frank Snow than the naked eye can see . . . or the sane mind can bear.

“Eat the Dark is a tight novel of terror. Well written, fast paced, with a grip like a claw. I loved it.”
–Joe R. Lansdale, author of The Bottoms

“Reminiscent of Stephen King’s early work, Eat the Dark is a terrifying, claustrophobic, bone-chilling, unputdownable masterpiece of suspense fiction. Human monster Frank Snow is a wonderful creation.”
–Jason Starr, author of The Follower

“I didn't just Eat the Dark–I gorged on it. It’s a master class in fast-moving, scary-as-sh*t storytelling.”
–Duane Swierczynski, author of Severance Package
