"Violent, messy, deep, beautiful." - Planar Pen, UK
"Someone needs to option this series to HBO." - Surreal Magazine, CA

This is a story about God and the Devil, but not how you were taught to believe. A dark, gritty science-fantasy epic, not for the faint of heart. 

Civil war between demons and angels lies just on the horizon.

Justice Alezair Czynri, newest recruit of the Purgatorial Jury, is thrown into a world of murder, exploitation, mind-altering substances and bureaucratic red tape as he and his court attempt to diffuse escalating conflicts.

And beneath the turbulent surface, things are very wrong.

Ever since his induction into the Celestial Court, Alezair has been treated with disdain by the Justice Commander, Leid Koseling. A former prisoner of the Nexus Initiative, Justice Czynri exists without any memories of his former life, the consequence of being a slave merc for hire. Whispers in the void tell him there's something more to Leid--more to all of this--but neither the celestials nor his colleagues are willing to divulge their dark history, barbed with slavery, control and genocide.

Yet Purgatory seems strangely familiar, and slowly little pieces start coming back. There might be a good reason why Alezair's boss keeps him at arm's length.

DESCRIPTION:

Why would anyone ever return to a haunted house?

For Diane Mercer the answer is simple. She's dying of cancer, and she wants to know once and for all whether ghosts are real.

FROM THE AUTHOR OF ASYLUM, HAUNTED AND THE NIGHT GIRL.

Heading home with her young son, Diane is determined to find out whether the stories are real. After all, everyone else claimed to see and hear strange things in the house over the years. Everyone except Diane had some kind of experience in the house, or in the little ash house in the yard.

As Diane explores the house where she grew up, however, her son is exploring the yard and the forest. And while his mother might be struggling to come to terms with her own impending death, Daniel Mercer is puzzled by fleeting appearances of a strange little girl who seems drawn to the ash house, and by strange, rasping coughs that he keeps hearing at night.

THE ASH HOUSE is a horror novel about a woman who desperately wants to know what will happen to her when she dies, and about a boy who uncovers the shocking truth about a young girl's murder.

DESCRIPTION:

Is it wrong to kill a human …
when you're not human yourself?

It's been two hundred years since the Trauma, a catastrophic event of a now forgotten origin, wreaked havoc upon the Earth, reducing the human population from billions to thousands, and leaving the survivors as prey to humanoid hunters. Vrana of the Raven is one of these hunters. Her tribe has made killing humans, now known as the Corrupted, its purpose--to "keep the balance"--to ensure that the Corrupted do not rise to power and lay the Earth to ruin once more.

But, one night, in the great northern city-state of Geharra, over ten thousand Corrupted disappear. And if so many can disappear so quickly, what's to stop it from happening again elsewhere, or to Vrana's own?

Geharra, however, is not the only place to suffer from strange happenings. In Caldera, Vrana sleeps fitfully, dreaming of a Void and the Witch trapped within. When she is called upon to travel with Serra, Lucan, and Deimos to the abandoned city, she accepts, but only to get away from Caldera, because the Witch that haunts her nightmares has begun to haunt her days.

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 eerie, disturbing story of one of our perennial fascinations -- witchcraft in colonial America -- wrapped up in a lyrical novel of psychological suspense.

"Once upon a time there was and there wasn't a woman who went to the woods." In this horror story set in colonial New England, a law-abiding Puritan woman goes missing. Or perhaps she has fled or abandoned her family. Or perhaps she's been kidnapped, and set loose to wander in the dense woods of the north. Alone and possibly lost, she meets another woman in the forest. Then everything changes.

On a journey that will take her through dark woods full of almost-human wolves, through a deep well wet with the screams of men, and on a living ship made of human bones, our heroine may find that the evil she flees has been inside her all along.

In the House in the Dark of the Woods is a novel of psychological horror and suspense told in Laird Hunt's characteristically lyrical prose style. It is the story of a bewitching, a betrayal, a master huntress and her quarry. It is a story of anger, of evil, of hatred and of redemption. It is the story of a haunting, a story that makes up the bedrock of American mythology, told in a vivid way you will never forget.

DESCRIPTION:

"An awe-inspiring, helter-skelter journey through mind-blowing SF, western dime novel, noir mystery, and near-future dystopian horror" (Publishers Weekly, starred review).
 
The debut novel from Zack Parsons, editor of the Something Awful website and author of My Tank Is Fight!, is a mind-bending journey through time and genres. Beginning in 1874, with a blood-soaked western story of revenge, Liminal States follows a trio of characters through a 1950s noir detective story and twenty-first-century sci-fi horror. Their paths are tragically intertwined--and their choices have far-reaching consequences for the course of American history.
 
It's a remarkable mashup that "somehow manages to become a cohesive, thought-provoking whole . . . There's no way a novel with this many moving parts should hold together, but it does, and even readers initially daunted by the jumble will soon be glad to go wherever Parsons takes them" (Publishers Weekly, starred review).
 
"Parsons's debut is a tour-de-force, a justifiably showy demonstration of the author's chameleon-like ability to write in several genres all at once, and it emerges as one of the scariest and bleakest tales I can remember." --Cory Doctorow

DESCRIPTION:

A young man and a woman from the planet Minion face violence and destruction on the subterranean world of Chthon in the bestselling author's early novel.

Phthor is the sequel to Chthon, less intricately structured and less complicated in plot, but still quite dark and ugly in theme and detail. Rather than flashbacks and flash-forwards, it has a Y outline, with the stem the initial story and the ends alternate futures, neither of which is acceptable to Aton's son Arlo. Arlo has his own encounter with a Minionette, and naturally, destruction is upon him and all with whom he associates. Writer and editor Charles Platt was so impressed with the chthonic setting that he wrote two additional sequels, Plasm and Soma, which are even darker and grimmer.

DESCRIPTION:

The "shocking [and] powerful" classic of postapocalyptic terror by the Nebula Award–winning author of The Iron Dragon's Daughter (New York Daily News).

It's been one hundred years since Three Mile Island went into full meltdown, filling the atmosphere with a radioactive poison that would contaminate the skies for hundreds of generations. Since then, the area around the island--now known as the Drift--has been a wasteland of disease and deformity, madness and monsters. It's been one hundred years since humanity knew what order and hope were.

The Drift has a law unto itself--one of vampires and mutants and outcasts left to struggle for daily survival. Within its bounds, the simplest act--even asking the wrong questions--can mean death. Or worse.

Praised by George R. R. Martin as "a potent new myth from the reality of radioactive waste," In the Drift is an inventive and unsettling look at the lives of those who are left to deal with the fallout of a nuclear disaster--a towering work of postapocalyptic fiction that provokes conversation and consideration even as it produces nightmares.

DESCRIPTION:

Twenty years from now a virus breaks out in a couple of Arctic naval bases, and then, even more strangely, inside the White House.

The guards become animated corpses, and rescue teams are rendered helpless by a mysterious trance effect.

Underpaid academic Dr. Weaver has documents that refer to something similar happening in the time of Christ, and a group of billionaires seek him out and immediately set him to work.

With the help of a super-hacker he tracks down a veteran who's not susceptible to mind control. But Sean "Jester" Solberg is a wild card--an aggressive loner who lives with the immigrants outside the cities. The next recruit is even more unusual. Curtis Ferguson is the son of a couple of anthropologists and reportedly the world's most powerful witch doctor.

Into this bizarre, dysfunctional group is thrust Jodie Goodwin, a down-to-earth Texan girl with exceptional shooting skills.

The newly formed team creep into the bunkers deep under the capital and encounter mankind's ancient enemies. They end up fighting for survival and soon discover that their lives depend on the powers of the young, but untested, shaman.

First in the cult classic trilogy: "A fantastic zombie novel . . . There are many layers to this zombie apocalypse, and this book just gets things rolling" (Booklist).

Welcome to New York City, Population Zero? The power grid has collapsed. There is no running water, no light, no heat. The massive neon signs of Times Square are dark now, and the subway trains crouch silent in their tunnels, waiting for commuters who will never return. An epidemic of staggering lethality has passed over the city and left nothing living in its wake. And yet the city is not deserted. The dead have returned to life, and they're hungry. The millions of people who once worked and lived in New York have been turned into cannibalistic monsters whose only function is to consume. No living person would dare enter the city--it would be suicide. Dekalb doesn't have a choice. He must protect his daughter's future, and that means retrieving vital medical supplies from the UN building in Midtown. A cadre of teenage girl soldiers have been recruited to help him find what he needs, and get back alive. They're well armed. They're devoted to their mission and willing to sacrifice anything to pull it off. But the odds against them are staggering. Especially when it turns out that not all zombies are created equal. Deep inside the city a medical student named Gary comes back from the dead different--his mind is intact. He can still think and feel. He's hungry, just like the rest, but unlike them he can plan, plot, and scheme. He can even lead the others, bending them to his will. Soon he has a small army at his command, a growing mob of rotting corpses all devoted to one cause: to find meat for their master. When Dekalb and Gary cross paths sparks will fly, destinies will clash--and the future of humanity will be decided, one head shot at a time.
