#13. Last Day to pre-order the limited edition of White Fire by Brian Keene.

In case you missed yesterday’s announcement, this book will no longer be available after 5:30 pm AZ time tonight (4/1/18).

#12. Special Saturday Post. New Brian Keene title only available Sat and Sun

by Brian Keene

In this new expanded, revised edition of WHITE FIRE, a devastating new sickness sweeps the land, but is it biological or supernatural in nature? One person races against time to discover the truth, facing off against a foe who may not be human. Previously out of print and never before available as a stand-alone, this new edition of WHITE FIRE has been revised and expanded, and is considered the Author’s Preferred Version.

A couple of notes about this edition:

  1. Although this is part of Thunderstorm’s Black Voltage line, this work is novella length and comes in at 118 oversized pages.  I.e., it is slimmer than a typical BV book.
  2. The pre-order period for this title is 48 hours long.  It will be available for pre-order 5:30 pm AZ time on Friday 3/30 and be sold out 5:30 pm AZ time on Sunday 4/1.
  3.  Given the short pre-order window and details of this edition, it has the potential to be one of the rarest Brian Keene limiteds.  The limitation will be set based on the number of pre-orders in the ordering window.
  4. The book is expected to ship late May/early June.
  5. The default shipping method for US customers is media mail, which typically has a one to three week delivery time.  If you would like to choose a different shipping method, please email me directly at to make special arrangements.



#11. New Book up for pre-order. Sick House by Jeff Strand (BV#85)

This one is sure to sell out lightning fast.  Do not delay in getting your order placed.  Only 64 copies.

by Jeff Strand

It’s a home invasion from beyond the grave in this novel of unrelenting terror from the Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of PRESSURE, DWELLER, and WOLF HUNT.

It doesn’t seem like the perfect house, but screw it, it’s good enough to rent for a year. Unfortunately for Boyd, Adeline, and their two young daughters, it’s immediately clear that they chose the wrong place.

The nightmare begins with violent coughs and headaches. Food starts to rot almost as soon as they take it inside. A pet tarantula goes missing. Some family members begin to exhibit creepy behavior.

Then the ghosts arrive, and all Hell breaks loose…

#10 New Book up for Pre-order. Plaything by Brandon Ford (BV#84)

When the Toller family moves in to the run-down house next door, Bailey McDaniel immediately notices strange behavior in the clan’s eldest son Glen. The pale-skinned, ginger-haired fifteen-year-old is aloof, prone to unforeseeable mood swings, and carries a morbid interest in the macabre. His bookshelves are lined with an array of well-worn true crime paperbacks depicting the serial and mass murders committed by a multitude of convicted madmen. It is Bailey’s overbearing mother and devoted therapist who insist that a friendship with the boy next door is worth pursuing, seeing that Bailey spent much of the past year in self-imposed isolation.

Reluctantly, Bailey heeds their advice and a friendship between he and Glen quickly materializes. It is, however, a friendship Bailey will grow to regret. As the layers peel away one by one, Bailey comes to find that Glen’s interests and obsessions are far more sinister thanstudying the brutal acts of those less than human and his fantasies are much darker than Bailey could’ve ever imagined. It is these fantasies that lead to the abduction of a pretty high school senior and a series of grisly murders that leave a small middle-American town bathed in blood.

Plaything is a relentlessly brutal story that plows through barriers never meant to be crossed, a nightmare that will leave readers clutching the novel with an incomparable fear, and waiting with baited breath until its savage conclusion.
