It is with heavy hearts that we learn of the passing of author Sam Gafford. A husband and friend to many, Sam was a very talented author and artist. We at Dark Regions Press were honored to publish his debut novel The House of Nodens and work with Sam during the process of publishing the book. We offer our deepest condolences to Sam's family and close friends and are thankful that we had the opportunity to work with him. Rest in peace, Sam.
