Today is the last day to order Return to the Lost Level by Brian Keene


by Brian Keene

War has come in this sequel to the best-selling novel THE LOST LEVEL. The snake-like Anunnaki have always been a blight for the people living in the hidden dimension known as the Lost Level, but now, the denizens are fighting back. After their community is decimated and their loved ones are enslaved in the aftermath of a devastating Anunnaki attack, Aaron Pace leads a diverse group of warriors — including the bowwoman Tolia, the mighty Karenk, a baby Triceratops, and a time-displaced Ambrose Bierce — on a trek through primordial jungles, dark forests, and a sun-blasted desert while battling pterodactyls, man-eating worms, and other dangers. Can their small band lay siege to the Anunnaki city and rescue their friends, or will they suffer the same cruel fate so many others have before them? Find out in Brian Keene’s RETURN TO THE LOST LEVEL. (Includes a bonus short story!)

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.

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.
