The Complex
The Cruelty of Autumn
The Daughters of Inanna

This set includes:

1. The Complex by Brian Keene

Meet the residents of the Pine Village Apartment Complex. A young trans woman looking for acceptance. A suicidal middle-aged horror writer. A single mother worried about her child. A Vietnam veteran who feels the world has forgotten him. A pair of hunted would-be criminals. An elderly widow who lives for her cats. Two newlyweds just starting their lives together. And the serial killer known as The Exit.

Until tonight, they were strangers -- to each other, and to themselves. Now, as their world teeters on the brink of an apocalypse and a murderous horde descends upon the neighborhood, they will have to reveal and embrace their true selves if they hope to escape...THE COMPLEX.

2. The Cruelty of Autumn by Brian Keene

Autumn is the cruelest season. It reminds us with bleak, bittersweet, melancholy certainty that spring and summer are gone, never to returns, and that winter is coming. Poets like Yeats, Keats, and Verlaine knew this to be true. So did Ray Bradbury and Richard Laymon. And so does Brian Keene, in this new collection of short stories featuring fourteen tales, including "Hide and Seek", "Fetish", "Baby Talk", "The Guardian of Tsalal", "Going Under", "Keepsakes", and many more.

THE CRUELTY OF AUTUMN is exclusive to this Maelstrom 2015 set. The book will never be reprinted, making it a true collectible.

3. The Daughters of Inanna by Rachel Deering, Livia Llewellyn, Chesya Burke, and Amber Fallon

The next wave in horror starts here! Thunderstorm Books and Maelstrom are proud to present this exciting anthology of all-new novellas by some of the brightest rising stars in horror fiction.
