BENEATH A PALE SKY
by Philip Fracassi

Beneath a Pale Sky collects eight stories of horror, including two original novelettes, that will take you from the high-security ward of a mental hospital to the top of a Ferris Wheel on an ocean pier. These stories will bury you in the rubble of an earthquake, pull back the veil on a soul’s journey into the afterlife, and turn a small midwestern town into the secret domain of cross-dimensional gods. Combining old-school horror with the modern weird, Philip Fracassi will take you places you’ve never been before, and show you sights you won’t soon forget

Philip Fracassi is an award-winning author and screenwriter. He is the author of the story collections Behold the Void, named “Collection of the Year” from This Is Horror, and Beneath a Pale Sky, named “Collection of the Year” by Rue Morgue Magazine, and a finalist for the Bram Stoker award. His novels include A Child Alone with Strangers, Gothic, and Boys in the Valley.

Philip’s work has been translated into multiple languages, and his stories have been published in numerous magazines and anthologies, including Best Horror of the Year, Nightmare Magazine, Interzone, and Black Static.

The New York Times calls his work “terrifically scary.”

THE HORROR AT PLEASANT BROOK
by Kevin Lucia

This Halloween, a malevolent, creeping horror invades a small, isolated town nestled deep in the Adirondacks. It cares nothing for this town’s secrets, prejudices, or flaws. Its only desires are to consume everything in its path and spread, until nothing else remains.

It is ancient, pitiless, and unstoppable. It is the horror at Pleasant Brook.

New Tempest title in-stock and shipping! Last Night at the Blue Alice by Mehitobel Wilson

LAST NIGHT AT THE BLUE ALICE
by Mehitobel Wilson

This edition is limited to just 45 signed copies and includes a new novelette set in the Blue Alice world along with a new introduction by Lucy Taylor.

Mollie Chandler is on the verge of joining a shadowy Order whose magical operatives, the Glymjacks, manipulate events of the past. As the only candidate for the role of Psychopomp, she must pass one final test before the job is hers.

The crumbling Blue Alice has been gathering ghosts for over a hundred years. Once a grand mansion, it was converted to a rooming house in the 1920s. Tenants throughout the century since have suffered violent poltergeist attacks by a vengeful spirit, complained of a spectral woman in black who looms and leers at their every move, reported hearing music when there should be none playing, and appealed to exorcists when tormented by a judgmental demon.

Mollie must use magic, ingenuity, and intuition to travel back in time to the source of each haunting, avert their circumstances, and change history.

If she succeeds, she will have to give up everything she’s ever known to become a Glymjack.

If she fails, Mollie will not survive—if she’s lucky. The alternatives to death are far worse.

Mollie has but one night to change the histories of the dead and plot the course for her own future.

She is running out of time, and into the haunted heart of the Blue Alice.

“Mehitobel Wilson (no relation) doesn’t write nearly enough, so something new from her is a cause for celebration. LAST NIGHT AT THE BLUE ALICE reveals a writer in full control of her considerable talents. The unique premise lifts it far above other tales of hauntings as each character comes alive on the page and pulls you in. Do not miss this.”

-F. Paul Wilson, Author of The Keep, The Tomb, and the Repairman Jack series (the Adversary Cycle.)

“Think of Bel Wilson as a Ralph Ellison or a J.D. Salinger of Horror. She takes a long time to write a story but the result is always worth the wait. The result is always groundbreaking. She manipulates prose the way Munch, Bosch, and Goya manipulated brush strokes. With mere words she chisels art out of darkness, and these exceptional skills couldn’t be better exemplified than in LAST NIGHT AT THE BLUE ALICE, likely the most intriguing and original horror-fantasy book I’ve ever read.”

–Edward Lee, author of The Dunwich Romance, Header, and The Bighead

“Like the best of Harlan Ellison, her fiction walks in enraged, full of fearsome intelligence and balls out to here.”

-John Skipp, author of The Art of Horrible People and many more.

“Caustic, classic, classy, nasty, elegant, relevant post-punk horror for people who give a shit.”

-China Miéville, Winner of the Arthur C. Clarke Award and the British Fantasy Award

Tempest #5 shipping this week! Muscadines by S.P. Miskowski

MUSCADINES
by S.P. Miskowski

The death of Ruth Parker reunites her daughters, three women scarred by a childhood of nightmares and mysterious secrets. Now they must choose a less violent path—or embrace their mother’s terrifying legacy.

 

“A horrific and disturbing tale, one of creeping dread…the best novella I read in 2016, the one that cut the deepest.” – Peter Tennant, Black Static #56

“Muscadines is an essential read for anyone who considers themselves a connoisseur of atmospheric, insightful, powerful literary writing.” – Paul Michaels, This Is Horror

“Nobody does very bad women like Miskowski, and this deeply disturbing story further establishes her as a master at exploring the psychological terrain of the kind of women who aren’t supposed to exist.” – Lynda E. Rucker, author of You’ll Know When You Get There

“Alternating between memory and confrontation, the narrative lays bare the secrets and sins that have bent and warped the lives of the three Parker sisters. Their efforts to reconcile themselves to their dark inheritance, the lengths to which they must go to reckon with their mother’s legacy, lead to a stark, powerful climax. Its prose equally fearless and graceful, Muscadines offers ample evidence why S.P. Miskowski has emerged as one of those writers who must be read.” – John Langan, author of The Fisherman

“S.P. Miskowski’s Muscadines is a glorious, heady rush of red clay dusted prose. Here she unpacks for us something lovely; something with lips and teeth stained crimson. With prose that dances between poetic and razor sharp simplicity, Miskowski has created a story that will linger in the darkest rooms where you store your secrets.” – Kristi DeMeester, author of Such a Pretty Smile

“S.P. Miskowski has real star power. Muscadines is a fine example of her Neo-Gothic chops.” – Laird Barron, author of The Croning and The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All
