BOOK TWO OF THE SAGA OF DEAD-EYE: WEREWOLVES, SWAMP CRITTERS, & HELLACIOUS HAINTS
by Ronald Kelly
Across the Bloody Mississippi…
Following the brutal murder of former Confederate officer, Joshua Wingade, the pursuit for the renegade vampire, Jules Holland, and his hellish followers continues across a war-torn South. The newly resurrected gunfighter, Dead-Eye, accompanied by Louisiana mojo man, Job, find themselves hot on the trail, eager to rescue an abducted child and put an end to the death and destruction the outlaws and the dark witch, Evangeline, have conjured with the aid of Necronomicon and the otherworldly Hole Out of Nowhere.
And into the West…
Upon setting foot on Missouri soil, Dead-Eye and Job’s travels take them into the peaks of the Ozark Mountains, across the Indian Territory, through the swamps of Louisiana, and onto the dusty plains of Texas. Beasts, bayou creatures, and ghostly apparitions hinder their progress along the way, as well as hellish bounty hunters recruited and brought forth from realms beyond the Hole.
Will Dead-Eye and Job – along with the demonic steed Brimstone and the silver-shoed mule Balaam – survive to continue their quest into the dark and savage heart of the western territories?

The Saga of Dead-Eye: Book Two
Werewolves, Swamp Critters, & Hellacious Haints!
by Jeff Strand
Book 4 of Jeff Strand’s Gleefully Macabre Imprint.
Evan Portin is at a sad, scary place in his life. While taking a long walk to compose himself and figure out where to go from here, he encounters a young woman being mugged in a park.
When he tries to intervene, he discovers that she doesn’t need his help. At all.
Her name is Harriett. She is very, very good at defending herself. Everything she owns is in a large backpack. She’s never seen a cell phone. She’s never been in a car. She’s never really ventured into the outside world.
And she says she’s traveling across the country to slay a Cyclops.
She’s crazy, right? Evan is not in the habit of hanging out with delusional women he’s just met. On the other hand, it can’t hurt to offer her a ride out of town. And maybe this insane journey is exactly what he needs…

Praise for Criterium
“This is small-town Bradbury with a world-weary mean streak: even the magic here seems perfectly happy to break your bones and drag your face across asphalt.”
– Jeremy Robert Johnson, author of The Loop and Entropy in Bloom
“A truly excellent novella. The prose is perfect, the story beautifully balanced, and the atmosphere is so strong it feels like you could cut it with a knife. Haunting, uncanny and profound: the strongest and most compelling new voice that I’ve read in a very long time.”
– Michael Marshall Smith, author of Only Forward and The Straw Men
“Tyler Jones writes with the lyrical complexity and haunting tenderness of masters like Matheson and Straub while remaining entirely new and inventive. A true visionary of contemporary horror fiction.”
– Eric LaRocca, author of Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke
“This book spoke to me on an emotional and spiritual level. I was moved. Haunted. An arresting story from start to finish…such a powerful piece. I’m adding Zach Ayers to my list of fictional characters who live in my soul forever. His story is achingly beautiful.”
– Sadie Hartmann “Mother Horror”
“Jones’ prose in Criterium is like a shot of adrenaline to the heart. Once you turn that first page, you give over any control you once had, and this book will steamroll you into the ride of your life…you can almost feel the wind in your face and the heat on your flesh…he writes this story to within an inch of its life… there are moments of frenzied paranoia and then subtle and melancholic moments of sadness, grief and aloneness. It’s intoxicating.
– Ross Jeffery, Bram Stoker nominated author of Juniper and Tome
Praise for The Dark Side of the Room
“Genuinely unsettling and leaking of paranoid dread, The Dark Side of the Room is residential horror at its finest.”
– Max Booth III, author of We Need to Do Something
“What struck me the hardest was the delicate beauty of the telling. There’s a tight-wired fragility to the prose, to the story, that creates a sense of both awe and uncertainty. A grisly tale, an ever-so-slow twisting of a knife. A triumphant piece of fiction.”
– Philip Fracassi, author of Beneath a Pale Sky and Behold the Void
New Philip Fracassi limited edition. BEHOLD THE VOID now shipping.
I finally received in a large shipment of books. I know the last couple of months have been very light for Thunderstorm, so it is good to finally have some books in-stock and shipping. One of those books is Philip Fracassi’s BENEATH A PALE SKY in limited edition format which SOLD OUT as a pre-order last September. I will start shipping this title next week. It probably will take me a bit longer than usual but I plan on getting a jump start as early as possible.
This brings me to the second part of the good news. I also received in copies of Thunderstorm’s 2nd limited edition of Phil’s. So today, I am pleased to announce that BEHOLD THE VOID is also in-stock and shipping. If you ordered Pale Sky and also now order Void, I will match numbers. I am also discounting the shipping (half off) for the next 48 hours. I will try and mail them together. During the first 48 hours, only order Behold the Void if you already ordered Beneath a Pale Sky. I want to give those who bought the first book the first chance to order the second book.
Note: the lettered editions are still in production and I am not putting up the ordering link for the lettered of Behold the Void until it is closer to its release date. (It is unlikely the lettereds will ship together, however, the same rules will apply: buyers of the first lettered will get the first chance at the second and I will match letters).
Phil and I are also discussing more possibilities for early 2024, so now is the time to start collecting Philip Fracassi’s amazing books.
BEHOLD THE VOID
by Philip Fracassi
BEHOLD THE VOID is nine stories of terror that huddle in the dark space between cosmic horror and the modern weird, between old-school hard-edged horror of the 1980’s and the stylistic prose of today’s literary giants.
Revenge takes a monstrous form when a scorned lover acquires bizarre, telekinetic powers; a community swimming pool on a bright summer day becomes the setting for a ghastly nightmare of sacrifice and loss; a thief does bloody battle with a Yakuza for the soul of a horse god; a priest must solve the mystery of a century-old serial killer or risk the apocalypse; a newly-married couple discover that relationships-gone-bad can be poisonous, and deadly; a child is forced to make an ultimate choice between letting his parents die or living with the monsters they may become; and when a boy is trapped on a beach at low tide, he must face death in many forms – that of the rising water coming to consume him and the ghost of his dead mother, who wants him back.

ROAD OF BONES
by Christopher Golden
Siberia’s Kolyma Highway is 1200 miles of gravel-packed permafrost within driving distance of the Arctic Circle. A narrow path known as the Road of Bones, it is a massive graveyard for the former Soviet Union’s gulag prisoners. Hundreds of thousands of people worked to death and left where their bodies fell, consumed by the frozen elements and plowed beneath the road. Documentary producer Felix “Teig” Teigland is in Russia to drive the highway, envisioning a new series capturing Life and Death on the Road of Bones with a ride to the town of Akhust, “the coldest place on Earth,” collecting ghost stories and local legends along the way.
However, when Teig and his team reach their destination, they find an abandoned town, save one catatonic nine-year-old girl—and a pack of predatory wolves, faster and smarter than any wild animals should be. Pursued by the otherworldly beasts, Teig’s companions confront even more uncanny and inexplicable phenomena along the Road of Bones, as if the monsters of the ancient wilderness itself were haunting them. It is a harrowing journey that will push Teig to the edge of human endurance.
“Christopher Golden’s Road of Bones is tightly wound, atmospheric, and creepy as hell. It will take you to a place you’ve never been before, and the trip will scare the hell out of you. I loved it!” ―Stephen King
“I don’t know how else to say it. This book is scary as f***.” ―Catherynne M. Valente, New York Times Bestselling author of Comfort Me With Apples
“Golden is writing at the top of his game.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred)
“Riveting reading.” —The New York Times Book Review
“Will chill even the most jaded readers.”—Booklist (starred)
“An essential read for horror and supernatural thriller fans.” — Library Journal (starred)
“Just try and put this book down, I dare you.” —Stephen Graham Jones, bestselling author of The Only Good Indians
