DESCRIPTION:

In 1989 Karl Blaine and his wife Fiona traveled to Nepal to climb Mt. Everest with their college friend Zachary. Only Zachary came back alive.

Two decades later, in 2009, a French climbing expedition discovered Karl's frozen remains. Of the five man party who finds Karl, only the Sherpa guide makes it down alive. He brings with him a whooper of a ghost story no one can believe.

When a much older Zachary is notified of this discovery it sets off a dangerous chain of events that puts Zachary and Karl and Fiona's son Derrick on a collision course.

What did Karl have in his possession when he disappeared?
What really happened in 89?
Can what the Sherpa guide reported really be true?

And one other question . . .

Is Fiona Blaine still entombed at the top of the world?

The World Fantasy Award winner by the author of the Hyperion Cantos and Carrion Comfort: An American finds himself encircled by horrors in Calcutta.
 
Praised by Dean Koontz as "the best novel in the genre I can remember," Song of Kali follows an American magazine editor who journeys to the brutally bleak, poverty-stricken Indian city in search of a manuscript by a mysterious poet--but instead is drawn into an encounter with the cult of Kali, goddess of death.
 
A chilling voyage into the squalor and violence of the human condition, this novel is considered by many to be the best work by the author of The Terror, who has been showered with accolades, including the Bram Stoker Award, the International Horror Guild Award, and the Hugo Award.

"Historical details and supernatural monsters abound, but it is the odd couple of Wilde and Stoker, with their diametrically opposed personalities and interesting quirks, that drives this story. Pass this volume on to readers who are hungry for more historical stories with a supernatural frame." - Booklist

Years before either becomes a literary legend, Bram Stoker and Oscar Wilde must overcome their disdain for one another to battle the Black Bishop, a mysterious madman wielding supernatural forces to bend the British Empire to his will. With the help of a European vampire expert, a spirited actress and an American businessman, our heroes fight werewolves, vampires and the chains of Victorian morality. The fight will take them through dark forests in Ireland, the upper-class London theater world and Stonehenge, where Bram and Oscar must stop a vampire cult from opening the gates of Hell.

DESCRIPTION:

8 dark, disturbing, and creepy stories by John Raptor (author of the controversial/provocative Trigger Warning and Hell High):

1. SINNER

In the windy streets of Chicago, near Millennium Park, a serial killer is cutting out prostitutes' eyes and replacing them with big black buttons--but that's not the strangest part. FBI Agent James Harris is witnessing these murders as they take place. Not with his eyes, but in his mind.

Weirder yet, The Prostitute Killer is privy to James' sins: the affair with his FBI partner and the night club where he picks up girls.

The killer believes that he and James share a twisted past, and he wants two things: 1. For James to confess his sins and 2. A meeting with James--in private.

If James does not comply, the killer will make sure James' wife and daughter end up looking like those dead whores.

2. Bloodlust

In this dark, psychological thriller, a head injury transforms a brain surgeon into a serial killer.

When a thug shoots brain surgeon Alex Dien in the head, he slips into a coma and awakens a blood-thirsty monster. Voices whisper in his ear, prompting him to stab, drown, and strangle. Soon, the bodies pile up and the FBI gets involved. In the end, Alex must choose to listen to the voices in his head, or save his wife and daughter--from himself.

3. Veritas

Special Agent Pillar LaPorte goes to Hell, North Dakota, to investigate the Mark of the Beast Murders: two victims--one burned alive, the other with his face slashed open--both marked with 666. Teaming up with her is Father Adam Harris, a local priest who is part of a group called Veritas (Latin for "Truth"), which investigates miracles, stigmata, and demon possession. Pillar suspects a local Mormon Bishop is responsible for the murders, but Adam believes it may be something more powerful: a demon, or possibly, God.

4. Dark Side

Jean wakes up in a world he does not recognize, on the run with three others from something called the Mafushcuhi: mutants who survived a nuclear holocaust. No one remembers who they used to be. Their brains have been pumped full of drugs, memories, personalities. Within one of them is the key to the universe that will allow the Mafushcuhi to open a portal in space and time, and stop the holocaust from ever happening. But doing so could disrupt the space-time continuum and destroy everything. Jean questions whether he can really trust his companions--after all, he has no memories of them. Are they being truthful, or do they have another agenda?

5. The Nightmare Project

Jack and Julie constantly have nightmares with one thing in common: a man in a long black trench coat, his face hidden beneath a rain hat. In a private lab, doctors monitor Jack and Julie's nightmares through something called the Dream Feed. Most the doctors believe the shared dreams can be explained by Carl Jung's collective unconscious, but one crackpot believes that the Dark Man is actually a demon. Jack and Julie discover the truth when they decide to confront the Dark Man in a shared nightmare.

6. Forward

In the small town of McClusky, North Dakota, a girl is stabbed to death after receiving a disturbing email. Her two best friends, Elsa and Eric, are terrified when they too receive the email: a picture of a dead woman on a stretch of highway.

7. Tommy

George Perkin's cat is possessed by Satan--which is rather unfortunate. With the help of three living-breathing clichés (religious fanatic, dumb blonde, and rapping black guy), Perkins must stab the cat through the heart with a dagger dipped in Evian water. Unfortunately, a possessed cat may be the least of their problems.

8. Flagg Hill

At a Christian summer camp in the Black Hills of South Dakota, a boy meets the love of his life. But things turn ugly when a psychotic pastor shows up. This demented man believes sexual purity can only be obtained through bloodshed. Girls vs Boys--the campers must play the most dangerous game of all.

DESCRIPTION:

"If China Miéville, Neil Gaiman and Hunter S. Thompson had a ménage à trois, Dead Boys would be the lovechild. A cracking book" (Jay Kristoff, New York Times–bestselling author of Darkdawn).
 
A decade dead, Jacob Campbell is a preservationist, providing a kind of taxidermy to keep his clients looking lifelike for as long as the forces of entropy will allow. But he's willing to leave behind his career, his home, and his fortune to find the man who cheated the rules of life and death entirely.
 
According to legend, the Living Man is the only adventurer to ever cross into the underworld without dying first. It's rumored he met his end somewhere in the labyrinth of pubs beneath Dead City's streets, disappearing without a trace.
 
Accompanying Jacob on his quest are the boy Remington, an innocent with mysterious powers over the bones of the dead, and the hanged man Leopold l'Eclair, a flamboyant rogue whose criminal ambitions spark the undesired attention of a shadowy ruler. Together, they embark on a perilous journey through an underworld where the only certainty is decay.
 
"Squailia's super-charged prose swings from bone-crunching action to meditations on the meaning of life and the mysteries of death. It's an exuberant mashup." --Brendan Mathews, author of The World of Tomorrow
 
"Squailia's characterizations are refreshing . . . A novel that pleads to be made into a macabre stop-motion animation." --The Guardian, "Top 10 Books About the Afterlife"
 
"Exquisite worldbuilding alongside a mix of humor and philosophy . . . This underworld is a fascinating city." --Publishers Weekly

DESCRIPTION:

A biker and a cowboy must stop the apocalypse in the first book of the Blood and Bone modern western fantasy series.

His voice was rich, a much loved baritone, as he handed his seven-year-old grandson a gun.
 
"It's time we had a talk, you and I. You won't remember it, but you need to know it, and one day, when it's time, I'll call it up in you. You'll know who you are, and what you're intended to do. You'll be a soldier, boy. Sealed to it. Life and limb, blood and bone. Not a soldier like others are, for it's not the kind of war most people fight on earth. But because we're not ‘most people,' you and I, it will be far more important. The fate of the world will hinge upon it."
 
Now no longer that wide-eyed child, Gabe is fresh out of prison, a leather-clad biker answering Grandaddy's peremptory summons to, of all places, a cowboy bar in Northern Arizona. He is about to find out just how different he is from "most people"--and to meet the stranger with whom he will be sealed: life and limb, blood and bone, conscripted to fight an unholy war unlike any other.
 
For the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.
 
When he does.
 
And Gabe, thrown into the unlikely company of a country-music-loving rodeo cowboy from West Texas, an ancient Celtic goddess of war, an African Orisha who sings volcanoes awake, a Chinese goddess of mercy, Nephilim, and Grigori, finds himself fighting a battle he was bred for, but wants no part of.

Stephen King meets Quentin Tarantino

At the end of every horror movie, one girl always survives the deadly slasher… In this case, Parker Ames not only survives, she turns the tables and dedicates her life to hunting and destroying the monsters that stalk slumber parties and campsites all across the country.

Ten years after the horrific events known as the Massacre at Coffin Bay, Parker's world has been flipped totally upside down. She's no longer the nerdy teenage girl who would run and hide from the things that go bump in the night. Now Parker is the thing that goes bump in the night.

After years of traveling the country and hunting some of the world's most dangerous slashers, Parker returns home when she hears that Hurricane Williams, the deranged slasher who slaughtered her family, has resurfaced and continued his killing spree. Armed with her trusty chain saw, affectionately named Aerosmith, she sets out on a path of revenge and redemption.

If you love 80s horror movies and killer books like My Best Friend's Exorcism, you'll love Escape from Happydale.

It has been centuries since the Sorcerer-Kings of old destroyed the world in their mad race to create ever-more-horrifying creatures. Now in the Fourth Age, known as the Age of Monsters, humanity clings to life by its fingernails, hidden behind walled cities and towns.

On the island of Daði, four kingdoms exist in an uneasy truce, ruled and protected by Cultivators with the power to break the Laws of Nature. There, Prince Erik, an unranked Cultivator and the descendant of a sorcerer's experiment, is attacked by an ancient predator, a beast birthed in the molten core of a long dead world. And as the abomination devours him, something monstrous awakens within his blood.

It is Halloween, a day that used to be your favourite of the year.

As a child, you counted down the days to Halloween, thrilled at the prospect of venturing out into the night in a monster's clothing and returning with a sack stuffed full with candy.

What you wanted was adventure, panic, black magic. You wanted to find yourself on a dark hilltop, shaking with fear as impossible shadows crept up the slope toward you. You wanted to see the dead sit up in their graves. You wanted to stumble through the fog trying to escape the clutches of a madman. You wanted to survive a nightmare...

DESCRIPTION:

Since the 1970s, FantasticLand has been the theme park where “Fun is Guaranteed!" But when a hurricane ravages the Florida coast and isolates the park, the employees find it anything but fun. Five weeks later, the authorities who rescue the survivors encounter a scene of horror. Photos soon emerge online of heads on spikes outside of rides and viscera and human bones littering the gift shops, breaking records for hits, views, likes, clicks, and shares. How could a group of survivors, mostly teenagers, commit such terrible acts?

Presented as a fact-finding investigation and a series of first-person interviews, FantasticLand pieces together the grisly series of events. Park policy was that the mostly college-aged employees surrender their electronic devices to preserve the authenticity of the FantasticLand experience. Cut off from the world and left on their own, the teenagers soon form rival tribes who viciously compete for food, medicine, social dominance, and even human flesh. This new social network divides the ravaged dreamland into territories ruled by the Pirates, the ShopGirls, the Freaks, and the Mole People. If meticulously curated online personas can replace private identities, what takes over when those constructs are lost?
FantasticLand is a modern take on Lord of the Flies meets Battle Royale that probes the consequences of a social civilization built online.

As two queens plot each other's destruction, a small band of adventurers continues its quest for the knowledge needed to defeat the mad King Brutus and his unearthly parasite, the Black Queen. Their search brings Morigan and the Wolf to the perilous forests of Alabion, where they and their companions will face the darkness of their pasts--and discover equally dark destinies.

Meanwhile, far from Alabion, the queens of the East and West continue their deadly dance. One seeks a relic of great power, while the other puts her faith in a mix of military and technomagikal force. Both are aware they have a slim window of opportunity to settle their power struggle--after all, Mad Brutus's recent defeat is at best a setback. The mad king is already amassing a new army of soulless husks in the wastelands of Mor'Khul. Unknown to the great powers struggling for control, a father and son wander those same wastelands, scavenging what they can as they weather Brutus's gathering storm. They too have a role to play in Geadhain's fate--a role which may just provide a last remnant of hope.
