DESCRIPTION:

"Black River Lantern is a deliciously sinister story, one steeped in all that rural Americana has to offer. It's a tale of family and dark forces, fates and fortunes, a modern myth born at the crossroads of the old world and the new." -Seattle Book Review "Throughout the tale, Grass' prose displays a sharp, confident voice flavored with indelible metaphors." -Kirkus Reviews "Black River Lantern is drama/horror/thriller operating at full speed, one hundred percent enjoyable." -Manhattan Book Review "Grass has gathered a fascinating cast of characters, each speaking in unique accents and playing interlocking roles that take the tale to an unexpected climax – a tapestry of personalities that is just as fascinating as the intricately woven storyline." -Independent Review of Books "Every sentence is beautiful and somewhat overwhelming." -Jay, Goodreads "Highly visual writing that gut-punches or gratifies a horror enthusiast." -IndieReader "It can be a challenge to make a book simultaneously engaging, horrifying, thought-provoking and funny, but the comedic aspects of the writing are undeniable, even if the humor leans dark." -Self Publishing Review "One of the best novels I've read in a while ... I was impressed, and it takes a lot to do that for me." -Ron, Goodreads Eddie Marivicos is trapped in a cycle of exploitation. And his daddy likes it that way. He was brought up by his father Papa Marivicos to work in the family carnival. Papa is a cruel man who runs his show like a labor camp. When it comes to the Marivicos Summerlong Carnivalé Festival, the show must go on… at any and all costs. Eddie has recently been "gifted" with the ability to hear others' thoughts; to him, it's a supernatural horror story that he cannot escape--a curse. Dubbed "second sight", this condition propels Eddie to local stardom, and for Papa, Eddie becomes the goose that laid the golden egg. But there are other opportunists who would make use of Eddie's powers for their own personal gain. As other people from Kayjigville come into Eddie's orbit--the mafia, and a greedy businesswoman who resurrects her fortunes after being disgraced--their fates become intertwined with his. Dr. Chain, a clinical psychologist, is tasked with looking after the young man after an explosive accident caused by Eddie's powers sends the town reeling. An escort named Lexi will cross paths with Eddie, and provide him comfort during a grim time in his life. Being close to the mind-reader does not come without consequence. In this paranormal horror story, everyone that comes within Eddie's orbit will be bloodied and scarred before it's all through. Papa Marivicos wants power and will stop at nothing to get it--extortion, murder, and perhaps even conjuring a Lovecraftian horror from another dimension, a presence that sends him into a spiral of grotesque mutation. Eddie wants nothing more than to break away from the darkness carved in his DNA, but will have to reach to the ends of the known universe to do so. The Marivicos family drama escalates as father and son learn to unlock the latent powers of their ancestors. One by manipulating sound, fire, and darkness; the other by harnessing the power of light. The 47th Annual Marivicos Summerlong Carnivalé Festival will kick off a chain of events that will usher in a dark and tragic horror upon the carnival, Kayjigville, and even realms thought to be the stuff of only the most far-flung paranormal fantasy... Feast your senses on this tale of dramatic supernatural fantasy tale!

Available Through October 02 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:

Finalist for the Chicago Review of Books Fiction Award, Dan Chaon's Best of 2017 pick in Publishers Weekly, one of Vol. 1 Brooklyn's Best Books of 2017, a BOMB Magazine "Looking Back on 2017: Literature" Pick, and one of Vulture's 10 Best Thriller Books of 2017.

Jac Jemc's The Grip of It is a chilling literary horror novel about a young couple haunted by their newly purchased home

Touring their prospective suburban home, Julie and James are stopped by a noise. Deep and vibrating, like throat singing. Ancient, husky, and rasping, but underwater. "That's just the house settling," the real estate agent assures them with a smile. He is wrong.

The move--prompted by James's penchant for gambling and his general inability to keep his impulses in check--is quick and seamless; both Julie and James are happy to start afresh. But this house, which sits between a lake and a forest, has its own plans for the unsuspecting couple. As Julie and James try to establish a sense of normalcy, the home and its surrounding terrain become the locus of increasingly strange happenings. The framework-- claustrophobic, riddled with hidden rooms within rooms--becomes unrecognizable, decaying before their eyes. Stains are animated on the wall--contracting, expanding--and map themselves onto Julie's body in the form of painful, grisly bruises.

Like the house that torments the troubled married couple living within its walls, The Grip of It oozes with palpable terror and skin-prickling dread. Its architect, Jac Jemc, meticulously traces Julie and James's unsettling journey through the depths of their new home as they fight to free themselves from its crushing grip.

DESCRIPTION:

‘We Men of Ash and Shadow' is the first book in the Vanguard Series and follows the journey of protagonist, John Vanguard, through the dark and corrupt city of D'Orsee. A Grimdark gas lamp novel, ‘We Men of Ash and Shadow' explores themes of redemption, loyalty, and betrayal against the backdrop of a world where survival often means compromising your values.

Amidst the gas lamp shadows former soldier-turned-mercenary John Vanguard hunts criminals at the behest of his corrupt employer, Captain Felix Sanquain. Shamed by his deserter past and seeking to make amends for his many misdeeds, a chance encounter with Tarryn Leersac – a skilled young would-be-assassin fallen from the graces of high society – leads Vanguard to become an unlikely mentor.

Charged with hunting down the killer of two guards left washed up on the banks of the canal, the further Vanguard delves into the underbelly of the city the more he finds himself entangled in a web of secrets and lies. A prominent aristocrat is missing. Crime lords, con men and harlots run amok and the city teeters on the brink of another revolution.

With his already precarious reputation hanging by a thread, Vanguard must piece together how and why the last war came to pass, find a way to earn redemption for his mistakes and come to terms with the past in a city where few survive, and even fewer can be trusted.
