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.

OF NIGHT TYRANTS AND TERRORS
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.

SANTA MUERTE + THE MISSING
by Cynthia Pelayo

Santa Muerte

In life, sometimes the only thing that can save you is death. Ariana Molina is a high school senior living in secret in Chicago, in hopes her father’s enemies do not find her. One day her father Reynaldo Molina, the lead federal investigator in Mexico targeting criminal organizations, arrives unexpectedly at her doorstep. After he is involved in a strange car accident that leaves one person dead, Ari begins to have visions of a veiled skeletal figure trying to lure her. Struggling with visions of gruesome ghosts in the day and night, Ari is soon stalked by Chicago street gang members suspicious of her real identity. When Ari discovers they are indeed members of Mexico’s most ruthless drug cartel who want her and her father dead, she has to make a choice to save their life and only Santa Muerte, the saint of death, can help her.

The Missing

Ariana Molina has returned to Mexico, after discovering the existence of a half-sister who has been kidnapped along with a group of students. She’s in a race to save her sister from the Mexican drug cartel suspected of kidnapping and murdering thousands. Yet, during this trip back to Mexico Ari learns of her true connection to Santa Muerte, the Mexican saint of death. She must now decide whether to align herself with death, making a deal with the darkness to save the only living family member she has left, while also facing Mexico’s nameless, torturous rising criminal El Catrin.

 

 

 

2 New titles are now up for sale! New Matt Serafini and Wesley Southard/Somer Canon limited editions.

As April winds down, I have two new titles up for pre-order.  These should be shipping next week (along with the other April announcements:  Blue Hell and Where the Devil Waits).

Welcome to Forest Grove. A nice place to visit. The perfect place to die.  
As a teenager, Melanie Holden did what many others died trying to do. She killed Cryus Hoyt, the summer camp madman who terrorized the residents of Forest Grove. But now, years later, Melanie is haunted by persistent feelings that Hoyt isn’t dead.
So Melanie’s going back to where it all began. To face those fears and (hopefully) put those demons to bed. Only someone’s been waiting for her, and now the most sadistic mass murderer in the region has seemingly returned, stalking the streets in his infamous welder’s mask with an arsenal of cutlery by his side. As the bodies pile up and a decades-old crime is unearthed, the stage is set for one final confrontation between Final Girl and Masked Maniac.
No matter who wins, Forest Grove will never be the same.
Only 45 copies!  $99

After waking up in a hospital bed, paralyzed from the waist down, Charlie Snyder had no idea where life would take her.  Dejected, broken, and permanently bound to a wheelchair, she believed her life was truly over.  That is…until gravity no longer applied.

It started out slow.  Floating from room to room.  Menial tasks without assistance.  When she decided to venture outside and take some real risks with her newfound ability, she rose above her own constraints to reveal a whole new world, and found other damaged individuals just like her to confide in.

But there are other things out there, waiting in the dark.  Repulsive, secretive creatures that don’t want Charlie to touch the sky.  And they’ll stop at nothing to keep her on the ground.

Only 50 copies!  $70.

BLUE HELL
by Greg F Gifune and Sandy DeLuca
A homeless man plagued by nightmares awakens in a hospital with no knowledge of how he came to be there. When he accepts the help of an organization that assists the downtrodden, he finds himself in a strange apartment building that may very well hold the key to his terrifying visions and forgotten past…
A pregnant woman on the run, haunted by her own bleak dreams and an out of control drug problem, speeds down a lonely highway in the dead of night. Charged with driving drunk and drug possession, rather than face jail time, she reports to a mysterious halfway house, unaware of the horrifying fate that awaits her…
A carefree young salesman agrees to a drunken night on the town with an enigmatic older man he barely knows, unaware that it will soon lead to the terrible truth behind not only his own life, but those lost souls that came before him…
Along the dark and lonely highways to Hell, in a city of night, foggy streets and shadow-filled alleys, their stories and lives merge in a fever dream of profane hunger, sex, savagery, and endless fire.
These are the passengers of night.  This is Blue Hell.
