DESCRIPTION:

This horror collection taps into everyday fears, the dark unknown, and what people hope they don't encounter in their daily lives. Except being afraid can be fun without consequences, so settle into your most comfortable reading place, where you feel the most safe. Rest assured these chilling tales of terror can't hurt you, just don't be surprised if they seep into your psyche.

STORIES IN THIS COLLECTION:

HAMMOCK SPIDERS: Infestation is an understatement when a new kind of spider invades a Midwest town, and a young boy's only means of escaping their giant fangs is a dirt bike. Except it belongs to his next door neighbor and that's a long way to go in this dangerous new world.

HIM: A little girl finds an opportunity to be friends with other kids, but their insults compel her to unleash her secret upon them.

MIDNIGHT MEN: While a thief shadows his next victim, his degrading introspective thrusts him into a confrontation he isn't prepared for.

PENDING: Trent doesn't know what year it is. They won't tell him. Questions will result in more time added to his work commitment. He's obedient, and an effective employee, but his frustration is unbearable. He feels different from everyone else, but in unique ways he can't explain. Since socializing is discouraged, the only consistent way to express his feelings is through a journal. At least they allow him that. As he grows older he gets bolder and eventually learns secrets they don't want him to know, ones that make him realize how valuable he is to them, how much power he possesses, and how afraid of him they truly are.

SCAREPLANE: Ever since Zeb fell as a boy he sometimes wakes up in another dimension strangely tied to our world, and the monsters within get closer. He isn't sure what they want or what secrets the dimension holds, but he does know he either has to find a way to destroy it or die trying. The fate of the world depends on it.

THE HATRED: After agreeing to house-sit for a mysterious homeowner, a struggling musician starts hearing voices in the middle of the day and having nightmares so frightening that he screams himself awake. As he goes about the conspicuous tasks he's being paid generously for, he begins to suspect he may not be alone in the house, and that there are plans in store for him more terrifying than he could possibly imagine.

WORLD SAVIN' GRANNY: The apocalypse is upon us! Well, actually not yet but it could happen soon, and the dead have risen! Uh, sort of, except not in the way people usually think, similar though. The only thing we know for sure is the world needs a hero, and that hero is Gertrude. Wait…What? Really?! Okay, well hopefully she finds her glasses first.

Blood Business: Crime Stories From This World And Beyond by Various Authors

Blood Business: Crime Stories From This World And BeyondVarious Authors

99¢

Available Through February 25 at

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:

Two books, one anthology.

The grift. The scam. The double-cross. Blackmail and burglary; murder and larceny. Blood Business tracks the underbelly of human nature as it drags itself through the muck of our lesser angels in twenty-seven crime stories set in this world... and beyond.

"Blood Business is as satisfying as a stiff drink after a tough case. Deliciously gritty, and dark as a day-old bruise, these stories will thrill any noir fan."
--Jaye Wells, USA Today bestselling author

"In Blood Business, duality is a theme but nuance reigns. Honesty won't save you. Virtue is subjective. And what if the only difference between appearance and a reality is what we choose to believe? Cinematic at times, uncomfortably intimate at others, Blood Business is a visceral delight."
--John Wenzel, The Denver Post

"Blood Business compiles an absolutely stunning collection of talent."
--Brian Keene

"Editors Acevedo and Viola offer an anthology of noirish tales exploring the dark recesses of both real and supernatural worlds... Two sharp, distinctive, and complementary clusters of stories."
--Kirkus Reviews

"In this uniformly good anthology of noir stories, the authors are able to inject some life, of the supernatural variety, into a genre usually rife with clichés."
--IndieReader

"Take horror writing at its best and add a crime/mystery spin. Then pair this with psychological depth for the foundation of the special atmosphere and focus of Blood Business, where every story is powerfully wrought, filled with satisfying twists, and presented with a flair of originality and surprise not typically seen in crime story collections. For all these reasons, Blood Business is a unique, compelling, dark production very highly recommended for fans who like their crimes tinged with psychological depth and horror, and who look for original, unique, compelling productions where every story is a gem and no 'filler' is allowed."
--D. Donovan, Sr. Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

BARGAIN

Available Through February 25 at

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:

The intoxication from a pint of vodka, the electric buzz from snorting cocaine, the warm embrace from shooting heroin--drinking and drugging provides the height of human experience. It's the promise of heaven on earth, but the hell that follows is a constant hunger, a cold emptiness. The craving to get high is a yearning as intense of any blood-thirsty monster.

The best way to tell the truths of addiction is through a story, and dark truths such as these need a piece of horror to do them justice.

The stories inside feature the insidious nature of addiction told with compassion yet searing honesty. Drug overdoses are now the leading cause of accidental deaths, and some of the most incredible names in horror fiction have tackled this modern day epidemic.
