Curtis saw it happen. He knows exactly who did it.

But he can’t prove that it was his neighbor Gerald Martin. The authorities find no evidence of the crime. There’s nothing they can do.

So he’s going to confront Mr. Martin himself.

And this is just the beginning of the terrifying story…

From the author of PRESSURE and MY PRETTIES comes a nerve-wracking coming-of-age thriller.

The Labyrinth — an interconnected mythos that binds all of Brian Keene’s works together.

The Labyrinth — an interdimensional construct that binds all of reality together.

Now, the Labyrinth is threatened. A group of malevolent cosmic entities known as The Thirteen have been loosed upon the universe. Ob, Leviathan, Behemoth, Nodens, Meeble, Shtar, Kandara and the rest of their kind have one goal — the complete destruction of all Creation. Seven unlikely warriors from across time and space have been called upon to stop them. If they fail, reality itself will crumble. And the collapse has already begun…

THE SEVEN: THE LABYRINTH Book One is the start of Brian Keene’s magnum opus, featuring characters and situations from THE RISING, EARTHWORM GODS, DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN, THE COMPLEX, CLICKERS, DARK HOLLOW, and many more in an epic, multi-volume final battle that spans Keene’s vast literary universe, and will thrill both new readers and long-time fans.

THE SEVEN: THE LABYRINTH Book One — Everything dies, but not everything has an ending…until now.

New Tim Meyer limited edition of Malignant Summer up for order!

It’s 1998 in Hooperstown, New Jersey and people are getting sick. Some citizens blame the local chemical plant. A select few believe something far more terrifying is responsible, a dreadful force that causes nightmarish visions and aberrant illnesses. Bad things are blooming in Hooperstown, and the stench of death is growing stronger…

Standing on the edge of summer break after the longest last day of eighth grade ever, Doug Simms and his two best friends join a group of older kids for an all-night scavenger hunt. It’s supposed to be a celebration, an evening of fun and freedom. But what happens that night will change their summer in the darkest ways imaginable. And not just their summer…but their entire lives.

MALIGNANT SUMMER is a coming-of-age epic where innocence is lost and the path through adolescence is painful. Where dreamscapes merge with reality. Where love seems possible, and the best season feels like it can last forever.

ONLY 55 copies!


The Fearing by John F.D. Taff is up for pre-order!

Only 52 copies!

What if all of humanity’s fears were unleashed onto the world at once?

Across the continent, survivors battle fears both personal and universal. Opposing them is the enigmatic Adam—a man seemingly able to inflict others with his own darkest fears—and his equally mysterious companion Jelnik.

As the world slips into darkness, the survivors of the onslaught struggle with the new normal of their now-dystopian lives amidst ongoing skirmishes with mankind’s fears. With devastation and atrocities continuing to escalate, and hysteria threatening to rip their tenuous society apart, they find themselves on a collision course with this malevolent duo, headed toward a terrifying showdown that could ultimately signal the end of humanity.

Multiple Bram Stoker Award-nominated author John F.D. Taff’s sprawling, apocalyptic epic The Fearing was originally released as four standalone novellas—Fire & Rain, Water & Wind, Air & Dust, and Earth & Ember. Now, here for the first time, all four parts finally come together in this single edition of The Fearing.

New Hailey Piper limited edition up for pre-order!

Shipping soon.

Oppressors, kings, tyrants of all kinds.  They are masters of their domains, ruling life and death, thought and will. Across four collected works of long fiction, Hailey Piper introduces readers to these royal demons, crowned not by infernal hells, but by humanity, and its pride, rage, greed, and grief. In these sinister kingdoms, teenage girls fight for their lives, a mother at wit’s end reaches for her last resort, lovers meet across damned seas, or separate under fates set in motion millions of years ago by forces only glimpsed in nightmares. There are no good kings, only the survivors and the dead.

THE POSSESSION OF NATALIE GLASGOW – A desperate mother seeks the help of a paranormal expert when her eleven-year-old daughter’s nocturnal behavior turns wild and dangerous. Mystery and horror merge in a tale of exorcism, family, and revelation.

BENNY ROSE, THE CANNIBAL KING – A Halloween prank centered on a small town’s legendary cannibal goes wrong when a group of teenage girls discover Benny Rose is all too real. A gory coming-of-age slasher lurking in the stormy woods of 1987 Vermont.

AN INVITATION TO DARKNESS – A ship captain falls for the heiress to an isolated seaside manor, but a sinister secret lurks below the waves and stalks the halls by moonlight. Dreamlike mystique haunts this Gothic horror.

THE WORM AND HIS KINGS – In 1990 Manhattan, a homeless woman’s search for her missing girlfriend turns to rescue when she learns the abductor is a subterranean creature linked to a secret cult. What lies beneath is a darkness that stretches from the dawn of time and across the stars. An engrossing cosmic horror story of love, identity, and universe-bending terror.
