“I have known three mothers, and I have had three deaths.”
So begins the harrowing tale of a young girl’s journey from innocence to madness. When her mother marries an ambitious genetic scientist, she is wrenched from her simple but familiar life on the coast of Maine and thrust into an elite world of wealth and power. As her stepfather’s influence grows, she realizes that his experiments are not as benevolent as he claims … and that he serves a force far darker than simple greed. After a catastrophic disaster at his lab unleashes a devastating power that leaves cities burning and transforms the land into an apocalyptic hellscape, she must fight to save both her own humanity and the handful of survivors that remain.
Carrion Harvest is a stunning gift of old-school horror combined with a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, all wrapped up in mesmerizing prose. – Tom Deady, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Haven.
“Beautiful, dark and menacing…A truly terrifying tale about how assumingly good intentions can and do go horribly wrong when money, greed, and power come into the equation. Morgan Sylvia’s Carrion Harvest is environmental horror at its finest. Enter the fields…if you dare.” ~Renee S. DeCamillis, author of The Bone Cutters and Chisel the Bone
New Michael J Seidlinger limited edition up for preorder. Ships this month!
by Michael J Seidlinger
What came first, the home or the desire to invade?
A seasoned invader with multiple home invasions under their belt recounts their dark victories while offering tutelage to a new generation of ambitious home invaders eager to make their mark on the annals of criminal history. From initial canvasing to home entry, the reader is complicit in every strangling and shattered window. The fear is inescapable.
Examining the sanctuary of the home and one of the horror genre’s most frightening tropes, Anybody Home? points the camera lens onto the quiet suburbs and its unsuspecting abodes, any of which are potential stages for an invader ambitious enough to make it the scene of the next big crime sensation. Who knows? Their performance just might make it to the silver screen.

THE BELL WITCH
by John F.D. Taff
The Bell Witch by John F.D. Taff is an historical horror novel/ghost story based on what is perhaps the most well-documented poltergeist case to occur in the United States. It tells the story of the Bells, an early 19th-century Tennessee farm family who begin to notice strange occurrences-odd noises, bangings, gurglings. Eventually, an entity reveals itself to the family, calling itself, simply, the Witch, and makes it clear from the outset that it was sent to kill the patriarch of the family, John Bell, for a reason it never makes quite clear.
The Witch’s antics, while not exactly endearing it to the Bells, make the spirit somewhat of a novelty. Word of its existence spreads, first through the Bell’s slaves, then through the rest of the community. It tells jokes, makes predictions, offers unwanted advice and even sings. It shows an intimate knowledge of The Bible and of history and politics.
It harasses those who annoy it most, saving its ire for John Bell and his teenage daughter, Betsy. These two people become the focus of the apparition’s attacks, both verbal and physical. Ultimately, the Witch fulfills its promise of killing John Bell, while also forcing Betsy and her mother, Lucy, into considering their own roles in what created the spirit.
The Bell Witch is, at once, a historical novel, a ghost story, a horror story and a love story all rolled into one.
