DESCRIPTION:

The Bastard is the first book in the Lurkers in the Dark series by B.R.Smith. - Jon Mischief is a man who lives up to his surname. He lives in a world of wealth, privilege, greed, corruption, and has ever so recently paid his way to freedom while on trial for the wrongful deaths of seven men. Jon sees himself as the most important person in existence and knows no other kind of lifestyle than the lucrative kind. Getting away from news cameras and the harsh glares of the questioning public should be a well-deserved vacation. Beyond the city limits, however, the night brings with it strange sounds. People have gone missing in the area. The wildlife is acting bizarre, almost possessed. He even believes somebody is lurking in the woods. Jon cannot trust any of his new neighbors for fear they will recognize him and bring the reporters to his door, or that they are the ones responsible for the continuing disturbances. Regardless of Jon's paranoias, a dark presence seems to be lingering around the perimeter of his new property, watching him, taunting him, making him doubt his own eyes and safety. Once again Jon finds himself on trial, but this time neither riches nor a gun can save him.

DESCRIPTION:

Murder sparks witchcraft hysteria in this "thoughtful" and "entertaining" seventeenth-century historical mystery from a New York Times–bestselling author (Stephen King).

It's 1699 in the coastal settlement of Fount Royal in the Carolinas when Rachel Howarth is sentenced to be hanged as a witch. She's been accused of murder, deviltry, and blasphemous sexual congress, and the beleaguered, God-fearing colonial village wants her dead. But Matthew Corbett, young clerk to the traveling magistrate summoned to Fount Royal to weigh the accusations, soon finds himself persuaded in favor of the beguiling young widow.

Struck first by her beauty, Matthew believes Rachel to be too dignified, courageous, and intelligent for such obscene charges. The testimony against her is fanatical and unreliable. Clues to the crimes seem too convenient and contrived. A number of her accusers appear to gain by her execution. And, if Rachel is a witch, why hasn't she used her powers to fly away from the gaol on the wings of a nightbird?

God and Satan are indeed at war. Something really is happening in the newly established settlement--of that Corbett is certain. As his investigation draws him into the darkness of a town gone mad, and deeper into its many secrets, Corbett realizes that time is running out for him, for Rachel, and for the hope that good could possibly win out over evil in Fount Royal.

From the award-winning author of Boy's Life and Gone South, Speaks the Nightbird is an "absorbing historical mystery" (Publishers Weekly).

DESCRIPTION:

One of NPR's Best Books of 2016, winner of the Shirley Jackson Award, the British Fantasy Award, the This is Horror Award for Novella of the Year, and a finalist for the Hugo, Nebula, Locus, World Fantasy, and Bram Stoker Awards

People move to New York looking for magic and nothing will convince them it isn't there.

Charles Thomas Tester hustles to put food on the table, keep the roof over his father's head, from Harlem to Flushing Meadows to Red Hook. He knows what magic a suit can cast, the invisibility a guitar case can provide, and the curse written on his skin that attracts the eye of wealthy white folks and their cops. But when he delivers an occult tome to a reclusive sorceress in the heart of Queens, Tom opens a door to a deeper realm of magic, and earns the attention of things best left sleeping.

A storm that might swallow the world is building in Brooklyn. Will Black Tom live to see it break?

"LaValle's novella of sorcery and skullduggery in Jazz Age New York is a magnificent example of what weird fiction can and should do."
-- Laird Barron, author of The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All

"[LaValle] reinvents outmoded literary conventions, particularly the ghettos of genre and ethnicity that long divided serious literature from popular fiction."
-- Praise for The Devil in Silver from Elizabeth Hand, author of Radiant Days

"LaValle cleverly subverts Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos by imbuing a black man with the power to summon the Old Ones, and creates genuine chills with his evocation of the monstrous Sleeping King, an echo of Lovecraft's Dagon… [The Ballad of Black Tom] has a satisfying slingshot ending." – Elizabeth Hand for Fantasy & ScienceFiction

"The surprises and shivers come thick and fast… a real page-turner. I cannot recommend it highly enough." - Brian Allan, Editor, Phenomena Magazine.

"THE GENTLE ART OF FORGETTING" - the next book in the trilogy, is also available now.

"The General Theory Of Haunting" has 58 five star reviews on Goodreads.
57% of Amazon readers also gave it five stars.


Every haunting has a design…
Winter, 1809. Lord Francis Marryman's wife Patience, dies.
In the madness of his grief, he builds her a memorial in the form of a remote country Hall.
But there is so much more to it. Francis, a brilliant mathematician, and scholar has put more into the walls than just bricks and mortar.
Autumn, 2019. Siblings Greg and Lucy Knights, owners of K&K Publishing Company, are looking for a venue to celebrate their company's 18th anniversary.
There is only one option that still has vacancies: Marryman Hall. Winter arrives and amid heavy snowfall, the guests drop out until just 6 reach their destination and soon find themselves snowed in.
As the guests' private lives and demons are exposed in the claustrophobic atmosphere, the secrets of Marryman Hall and her history are also brought into the light.

In his grief, it's possible that Lord Francis Marryman may have made a terrible mistake…

"The General Theory of Haunting" is the perfect ghost story to curl up with on the long winter nights - like Marryman Hall's guests, you won't spot the twists or know what's truly happening until it's way too late...
"This book is surprising, moving and terrifying." - Harry Hill.

Rivas had hoped those days were behind him, but a desperate entreaty from a powerful official is pulling him back into the game. The rewards will be plentiful if he can wrest Urania, the official's daughter and Gregorio's first love, from Jaybush's sinister clutches. To do so, the redeemer reborn must face blood-sucking hemogoblins and other monstrosities on his way to discovering the ultimate secrets of this neo-Californian civilization.

DESCRIPTION:

Unsealing the hatch of a rusty old WWII tank will unleash a demonic nightmare in this novel by "the master of modern horror" (Library Journal).

Thirty-five years have passed since the Allied invasion of Normandy on D-Day turned the tide of World War II against Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Reich, and it's been more than three decades since the residents of the tiny French village of Le Vey witnessed the horrific slaughter of hundreds of German soldiers by thirteen black tanks. One of the tanks remains on the outskirts of town--its hatch mysteriously sealed, trapping its controller inside--only to be discovered by American surveyor and cartographer Dan McCook.

Driven by curiosity and an inexplicable compulsion, McCook is about to do the unthinkable and release what lives within the tank upon an unsuspecting world. And once the monstrous occupant reunites with others of its demonic kind, a new world war will begin, one that threatens to wash the earth in blood and drag every man, woman, and child through the fiery gates of hell.

A chilling and ingeniously original tale of demonic possession and apocalyptic possibilities, The Devils of D-Day is classic horror at its best, from the award-winning author of The Manitou.
