DESCRIPTION:

These selected terrors range from the speculative to supernatural horror, encompass the infernal and the occult, and include stories inspired by H. P. Lovecraft, Robert Aickman and Ramsey Campbell.
Hasty for the Dark is the second short story collection from the award-winning and widely appreciated British writer of horror fiction, Adam L. G. Nevill. The author's best horror stories from 2009 to 2015 are collected here for the first time.

The hardest journeys in life and death are taken underground.
No blackmail is as ghastly as extortion from angels.
A swift reckoning often travels in handheld luggage.
Once considered inhumane and now derelict, this zoo may not be as empty as assumed.
A bad marriage, a killer couple, and part of a wider movement.
No sign of life aboard an abandoned freighter, but what is left below deck tells a strange story.
The origin of our species is not what we think.
In destitution, the future for revolution and mass murder is so bright.
Your memories may not be your own, and your life nothing more than a ritual that will compel you to perform an atrocity . . .

Praise for the author's first collection of horror stories, Some Will Not Sleep: Selected Horrors:

"Great storytelling, but across a wider palate and range of styles than you might have expected, leading to some delightfully unexpected visions and hellscapes." Gingernuts of Horror

"There is not one single tale which feels less than the others, none which seem to be mere ‘filler'. They are beautifully crafted, original and complete works which nevertheless fit well together as arranged by the author." This is Horror

"In 'Some Will Not Sleep' nothing is sacred, nothing is safe, and goodness me, if you like horror fiction you're going to absolutely love every damn minute." Pop Mythology

"Eleven wonderfully macabre tales that cover the whole gamut of the horrific. The supernatural rubs shoulders with the bizarre, body horror and psychological trauma walk hand in hand." The Eloquent Page

"Verdict: A collection full of creeping dread, well worth a read. 9/10." SciFi Bulletin

"Some Will Not Sleep contains 11 short stories, 11 stories that takes you different times and places. 11 stories that will give you your fix of the macabre. 5 Stars" Terror Tree

"It isn't often that I read a short story collection and enjoy every entry, but with this book I did." The Grim Reader

"There are eleven stories in the book, eight of which are written in first person narrative, and each and every one is a cracker – here you'll find monsters (including those of the human variety), ghosts, arcane rituals and some of the most disturbing imagery." Anthony Watson

"An excellent collection, recommended for anyone interested in the current surge in weird fiction or short stories in general." Unsung Stories

Praise for Adam Nevill's horror novels:

"Adam Nevill is a spine-chiller in the classic tradition, a writer who draws you in from the world of the familiar, eases you into the world of terror, and then locks the door behind you." Michael Koryta, NYT Bestselling author

"He has the rare ability to craft a nebulous atmosphere of terror, as well as to capture cinematic slasherpunk in the written word. Both are incredibly rare talents." Pornokitsch

"The sense of dread is immediate, with the reader's sense of foreboding increasing with every new page." Irish Examiner

"Readers will lose all hope of peaceful, undisturbed sleep. Highly recommended." Library Journal - Starred Review

"Nevill's talent for horror resonates ominously in every scene, almost as if the theme from Jaws echoes when a page is turned." Kirkus

DESCRIPTION:

A legacy never to forget…

Something is alive on the Titanic -- something powerful and malevolent that protects the once-great ocean liner from the rapacious intentions of those who would desecrate her grave.

It lurked unseen in the 1980s while three American and French expeditions, seeking to explore and document, visited the resting place of the world's most famous luxury liner.

Whatever is down there first made itself known in 1975, encountered by a secret mission made before the later publicized ones -- an undisclosed salvage attempts whose goal was not just scientific exploration.

Based on a scrap of decoded text from the Titanic's cargo manifest, this first mission set out with the expectation of finding, and recovering, millions of dollars in gold believed hidden in Cargo Hold Three…an undertaking doomed to a tragic end.

Now, in 1993, a new group of men and women -- scientists, adventurers, and the United States Navy -- wants to retrace the steps of that original voyage to investigate…and succeed where the 1975 mission failed.

As they penetrate deep into the hull, the first people to see the interior in eighty-one years, they find they are not alone.

At first skeptical of the reports from the first mission, which tell of monsters and apparitions that reason says cannot exist, they soon begin to believe.

What they discover is extraordinary, something none of them has ever experienced before…and something none of them ever wants to experience again.

Something's Alive on the Titanic dazzlingly brings the ill-fated ship to life in brilliantly dramatic scenes.

Deal availability may change without notice! Prices may vary from store to store. Due to international copyright, availability and pricing may vary outside of the US.

DESCRIPTION:

Horror in the hills of Bulgaria! When three friends go on holiday, protecting themselves from sunburn is their only concern. But when they run into a beast unlike any they've ever imagined, it becomes a savage fight for survival. They will burn in the day... but the night holds even darker terrors in store.

A tale of relationships, sacrifice and growth, where one painfully vulnerable young man must come of age or perish at the hands of a monster like none you will have seen before. A grisly retelling of a legend as old as time.

"The story flows like a dream, and the characters are diverse, divisive and distinct. Mr Dash can not only create a thrilling horror, but the kinds of characters, depth and quality with which he completes the novel bring it to a much higher level. Sunburn is engaging, horrific and visceral, interesting and truly well-written." Matthew R Bell's Book Blog Bonanza.

"vivid and unrelenting... Dash fully realizes the unnamed monster in all of its grotesque, imposing physicality... the novel offers captivating tension and brutal, gory fun." Kirkus Reviews.

"I cannot go on enough about the book, how great it is and how entertaining. This is an author who knows how to make the readers laugh, cry and scream in terror. To call this a must-read is an understatement!" Kelly Smith Reviews.

"A well-written and disturbing piece of fiction that explores relationships and delves into the deepest corners of the human mind. The plot reads like an international horror movie, enticing the reader with a series of detailed and comedic chapters before exploding into a vision of blood-chilling gore." Books, Films & Random Lunacy.

"This demonic masterpiece does not fail to disappoint even the biggest of horror fans." Crossing Pixies.

"A violent culmination of love, friendships, hilarity, thrill, horror and sex… Isn't that what we all want from a good book?! Sunburn literally had me completely HOOKED. A brilliant and thrilling read." Chase That Horizon.

"The elements of classic horror are very much present here. Sunburn held me firmly in the moment, demanding my full attention right to the very last page." Thoughts Of An Overactive Imagination.

"Darren Dash builds up the suspense with skillful pacing and a healthy dose of literary restraint, wisely refraining from indulging in the most horrific and grotesque elements of the plot until the reader has become invested in the characters. The result is a horror novel that is suspenseful, fun to read, and at times, very gruesome indeed. It also contains some very good reasons for never forgetting to wear sunscreen." Safie Maken Finlay, author.

"Sunburn held me firmly in the moment, demanding my full attention right to the very last page. Then, just when you begin to think you're safe, unholy bloody mayhem ensues." The Thoughts And Ramblings Of An Overactive Mind.

"Like the Hostel films, they have a lot of set up and then shizzle hits the fan... and then hits it again for good measure!" Dark Readers.
