An extraordinary biography. A gallery of astonishing work. The legacy of a madman. Philadelphia, the late 1870s. A city of gas lamps, cobblestone streets, and horse-drawn carriages—and home to the controversial surgeon Dr. Spencer Black. The son of a grave robber, young Dr. Black studies at Philadelphia’s esteemed Academy of Medicine, where he develops an unconventional hypothesis: What if the world’s most celebrated mythological beasts—mermaids, minotaurs, and satyrs—were in fact the evolutionary ancestors of humankind? The Resurrectionist offers two extraordinary books in one. The first is a fictional biography of Dr. Spencer Black, from a childhood spent exhuming corpses through his medical training, his travels with carnivals, and the mysterious disappearance at the end of his life. The second book is Black’s magnum opus: The Codex Extinct Animalia, a Gray’s Anatomy for mythological beasts—dragons, centaurs, Pegasus, Cerberus—all rendered in meticulously detailed anatomical illustrations. You need only look at these images to realize they are the work of a madman. The Resurrectionist tells his story.

"And make no mistake: Dani is tough ... so tough even the grave couldn't keep her down. Ever since mysterious beings brought her back from her tragic murder, she's been using her newfound powers to restore justice to the world of humans. It's hard, dangerous work, and sometimes a little backup doesn't hurt--especially when it comes from a hunky cop like Sam Lopez. There's only one catch: Dani's past has taught her that she can't trust another man. Besides, Sam has demons of his own to battle. They'll just have to ignore the heat that's building between them. Until a great evil begins to rise, and then Dani and Sam need to get closer than they've ever been"--

With a murderer on the loose, it’s up to an enlightened bodysnatcher and a rebellious princess to save the city, in this wonderfully inventive Victorian-tinged fantasy noir. “Man of Science” Roger Weathersby scrapes out a risky living digging up corpses for medical schools. When he’s framed for the murder of one of his cadavers, he’s forced to trust in the superstitions he’s always rejected: his former friend, princess Sibylla, offers to commute Roger’s execution in a blood magic ritual which will bind him to her forever. With little choice, he finds himself indentured to Sibylla and propelled into an investigation. There’s a murderer loose in the city of Caligo, and the duo must navigate science and sorcery, palace intrigue and dank boneyards to catch the butcher before the killings tear their whole country apart.

"A fine gothic novel…Be warned: Corpses abound." —Washington Post At South Carolina Medical College, Dr. Jacob Thacker is on probation for Xanax abuse. His interim career—working university public relations—takes an unnerving detour into the past when the bones of African American slaves are unearthed on campus. In a parallel narrative set in the nineteenth century, Nemo ("no man"), a university slave purchased for his unusual knife skills, becomes an unacknowledged member of the surgical faculty by day—and by night, a "resurrectionist," responsible for procuring bodies for medical study. An unforgettable character, by turns apparently insouciant, tormented, and brilliant, Nemo will seize his self-respect in ways no reader can anticipate. With exceptional storytelling pacing and skill, Matthew Guinn weaves together past and present to relate a Southern Gothic tale of shocking crimes and exquisite revenge. A 2014 Edgar Award Finalist for Best First Novel.

In 19th century Scotland, surgeon Edgar Price has only days to live. He has become host to a revenant that will corrode both his body and soul. Edgar's fatal mistake has not only doomed him, but also released six more of these malignant wraiths onto the world. In his remaining time, he has vowed to stop the revenants from claiming other victims. His perilous travels lead him to the Witches' Wood, a haven for a sisterhood of powerful enchantresses. There he meets Ainsley, a witch with a fiery spirit and strong distrust of outsiders. She too is racing against the clock to save her life and will go to any lengths to spare her lover Colleen from the grief of losing her. Despite their mutual dislike, Edgar and Ainsley find that the only way to traverse the twisted, otherworldly labyrinths that the revenants have created is to work together. Their mission becomes further complicated when Edgar begins to develop strong feelings for Fana, the guardian goddess of the Wood, in spite of Ainsley's forbidding warnings to stay far away from her. Horror and fantasy intermingle in this imagined continuation to the true story of the Burke and Hare murders. "A.R. Meyering's The Resurrectionist is a thriller firing on all cylinders. Lit by gaslights, haunted by the past and the long dead, the witchcraft, the protagonists, not to mention Scotland's turn of the century setting, will delight readers. Part high Romance, part supernatural thriller, The Resurrectionist dives into a rabbit hole of magic and secrecy that will keep readers flipping pages long into the night." - Stephen Scott Whitaker, member of the National Book Critics Circle, author, and managing editor for The Broadkill Review "The raw beauty of The Resurrectionist is more than the intricate world of hidden magic Meyering builds, or the complex characters, both good and bad, so easy to bond to and commiserate with. It's the very real and frightening possibility that such chaos can come of a single decision made in anger by an individual. At its heart, The Resurrectionist is about the power of choice and consequence, and the very real horror one can inadvertently unleash upon the world." - Author Lisa Gail Green, author of The Gallows House "The real-life story of the infamous body snatchers, Burke and Hare, is the inspiration for A.R. Meyering'sThe Resurrectionist, a sophisticated, lush, and engaging fantasy novel. It offers the perfect touch of Gothichorror, along with thought-provoking ideas, an elegant use of fantasy, and well-drawn characters whose humanity is the perfect counterpoint to the evil of their adversaries." - Victoria Gilbert, author of the Blue Ridge Library Mystery series and the "Mirror of Immortality" series "Meyering's world fluctuates between Barker-esque scenes and Dostoyevskian guilt-complexes with such ease that one wonders whether the 'The Resurrectionist' can function as a concise, thoughtful novel - but it does, and it's a bloody good time." - Walker Zupp, Author of Martha
