Third Man Books is excited to announce our first horror book: The Last Vanishing Man and Other Stories by Matthew Cheney. 

“Weird, dark, and wonderful visions from a wholly unique voice.” — Jeffrey Ford 

Magic stops. Men vanish. Worlds end. Life goes on.

The Last Vanishing Man is a book for readers seeking more than familiar genre conventions, readers seeking stories that challenge, unsettle, surprise, and sing. These are stories aware of the sufferings of the world, stories of characters tormented by unfulfilled desires and unfathomable violence, but also stories of compassion, of community, of humor, and of infinite possibilities beyond the prison of the self.

Available from bookstores everywhere May 3. Be the first to read — pre-order now

“Brutal and Beautiful.” — Franz Nicolay 

“Fever-dream reportage wrapped up in packages both bloody and colorful.” — Paul Di Fillipo


Join us for the book launch party with Matthew Cheney and best-selling author Jeff VanderMeer, whose book Annihilation was made into the movie of the same name starring Natalie Portman and directed by Alex Garland.
