All,

After taking most of January off, it is good to be back!  Thunderstorm Books is proud to present its first two limited editions of 2017.

The Unhinged
by David Bernstein

Limited to 52 copies.  Black Voltage #66

After spending six years behind bars for his part in an armed robbery, Aaron Dupree is released on parole. He’s a changed man, has a job, and a new love interest. Things are going well for him until he is pulled over for speeding. The officer offers Aaron a choice. He can either go back to prison for violating parole, or agree to do things for the cop. Without hesitation, Aaron jumps at the chance to avoid being locked up again.

Aaron soon finds himself under the cop’s thumb and caught in a web of madness. As the level of horror rises, he doesn’t think things can get any worse until he meets the man with the scar, a vile and malevolent individual who only lives to deal pain and punishment.

The Fallen Boys
by Aaron Dries

Limited to 52 copies.  Black Voltage #67

Marshall’s young son committed suicide four years ago. Where there was once the boy he loved, now there is a coffin, the stillness of the bedroom, an empty pet cage. Day by day, Marshall’s agony corrodes, destroying his marriage and chewing through all the ambitions that defined him for so long. A once strong man is without purpose—until the day he goes through his son’s old belongings and finds a teddy bear, the one with the slit in the seam. A thumb-drive tumbles from the stuffing and hits the floor. On it is a document. These ten seethingpages change everything. They give Marshall a purpose again. He is going to hunt down the people who drove his son to suicide, and in doing so, fall into a madman’s trap over a decade in the making.

THE FALLEN BOYS is an explosive novel of psychological horror from the award-winning author of House of Sighs and A Place for Sinners. It is not for the faint of heart.

This newly revised edition also includes exclusive bonus material.

1. Throne of the Bastards by Steven L. Shrewsbury & Brian Keene

Rogan is back in this sequel to Brian Keene and Steven L. Shrewsbury’s award-winning KING OF THE BASTARDS, and this time, he’ll show no mercy. Learning that his family are in danger, Rogan returns to his former kingdom, now under siege from foreign invaders led by his bastard son. Now, the aging barbarian and his trusted companions, Javan and Akibeel, must forge an alliance new friends and old foes, mustering an army to retake the kingdom. Surrounded by savages, soldiers, demons, and dark magic, it will take all their cunning, skill, and courage to survive the war and determine once and for all who shall sit upon the THRONE OF THE BASTARDS.

2. School’s Out by Brian Keene

Eight-year-old Alan doesn’t like going to school, but when a global pandemic leaves him orphaned, cold, starving, and lonely, he has no choice but to set out on a dangerous quest to return to his third-grade classroom. SCHOOL’S OUT, an all-new post-apocalyptic novella by Brian Keene, was suggested to him by his son, marking their first official collaboration, and is suitable for all ages.

3. Come to Dust by Bracken MacLeod

Ever since her mother abandoned her, five-year-old Sophie has had to depend on her uncle Mitch for everything. But he’s struggling. Restarting a life interrupted by time in prison is hard enough without having to balance work and single parenthood. Mitch is determined to make it work though, striving to keep their family together despite the obstacles in their way, because no matter how difficult things get, they are good for each other. And life for the two of them seems to be looking up. But when Sophie dies tragically, it all comes crashing down. Mitch descends into a crippling grief, coming to understand how little his freedom means without her to share it with. And though released from the sudden responsibility thrust upon him, all he wants is his niece back, safe and alive.

When he gets his wish and scores of children around the world begin to inexplicably rise from the dead—Sophie among them—everything becomes much harder.

Mitch rescues her from the morgue, determined to carve out a normal life for them no matter what, though it soon becomes clear that may not be possible. While the kids who’ve returned behave like living children, they still look very dead. And they can do something else that normal children cannot. Something terrifying. Beliefs differ whether the children’s return is a mercy or a sign of approaching judgment, and a congregation of religious fanatics determined to usher in the apocalypse has their own plan for salvation.

Now Mitch must find a way to save Sophie from an increasingly hostile world that wants to tear them apart and put her back in the ground for good.

Blue Demon
by David Bernstein

When the meek need defending, they call on Blue Demon, a guardian of bloodshed and retribution. Its loyalty is forever, as long as you remain righteous. For those that oppress the demon’s flock, life grows short. It kills in the most brutal fashion, and maims those it most despises. It has no feelings, only loyalty and devotion for the ones it protects. Of course, this is all from the Blue Demon television show and Cal Langston, Blue Demon’s biggest fan, knows such things can’t be real, at least not until the people who messed with him start dying in the most horrific of ways. Frightened and not sure what to believe, he sets out to discover what is truly going on, and if Blue Demon is for real, does he want it watching over him?

Grim Riders
by Tim Curran

Nathan Partridge broke out of prison to get what belonged to him—his wife and $80,000 in robbery money. Now he’s being hunted by the law. By desperados. By a relentless federal marshal. And, worse, by a pair of bounty hunters who are barely even human. A showdown is coming. And it will be hell on earth.

Seven Buried Hill
by Kristopher Rufty

Everyone told her that her father wasn’t missing, but Catherine Dalton knew better. That old man could handle his horse like nobody’s business, and not only was he able to survive in the wild—he thrived there. So after many days passed since he headed for the mountains of western Carolina and still hadn’t reached his destination, Catherine knew with certainty something was wrong. Ill fortune had undoubtedly befallen her father. Former outlaw Henry Hardin and his gang weren’t known as the helpful type, but with time and terror mounting, Catherine had run out of options. As the mercenary crew treks into the remote mountains in search of their payday, one-by-one they learn of the black heart that beats there, of the evil palpitating through each step they take forward. Brutal savagery glides through the gloom silently alongside them, biding its time, nurturing appetites only sated by slaughter. Little do the outlaws know that their quest to save a life might end with a battle for their own, as two breeds of evil collide, the hunters become the hunted, and desolate mountains ring with the screams of men and savages fighting to survive.
