DESCRIPTION:

Blue Springs, a quaint historic town, where evil lurks, and monsters dwell. Even most locals don't believe the old tales, but in this town what you don't believe in might kill you.

Twelve-year-old Josh loves Halloween more than anything, until he encounters a decoration more terrifying than anything he's ever seen. Will he still feel the holiday spirit, if he makes it out of this one alive?

A couple of community college students discover the greatest dangers can come from within. Can a best friend save the day when even a thought can kill, or is it already too late for both of them?

A group on a hunting weekend is stalked by an ancient evil, but these friends have their own monstrous secret. Can it keep these hunters from becoming the prey?

Little Cristina is the first-grade-superhero princess of the backyards on her street. She is fearless in the face of any pretend monster. When she discovers a real one, will she keep her little nerve long enough to stay alive, or will the shadow of the beast darken the rest of her short life?

It will take all they have for these and more citizens of Blue Springs to survive. Here, when things go bump in the night, you have to bump back, and hard. Will those that survive confront fates worse than death? When darkness closes in on all sides, do you surrender and serve, or fight it to the last?

Here, for the first time, is the complete collection of Blue Springs stories.

YOU'RE LIVING THE DREAM...

A beautiful house, a loving wife. Two kids, a dog, and a tenure track professorship teaching art at the local university. Your name is Daniel Rineheart. You've got it all.

...BUT ALL DREAMS MUST END.

For this autumn heralds the arrival of a mysterious painting. No name. No date. No signature or frame. A disturbing work of grotesque perfection: two children with cruel eyes, a window onto an endless field, and a dying tree on top of a hill.

A work of art... that changes with each viewing.

SO BEGINS THE NIGHTMARE...

...Where wretched children crawl from a canvas prison to stalk the quiet halls of this happy home.

...Where painted clocks tick-tock away in the dark hours before dawn, and a missing dog whimpers from between the walls.

...Where all answers lead to a dark artist and an impossible creation, a cursed canvas with a twisted past...

...AND A HORROR THAT WILL DEVOUR ALL.

Curl up, if you dare, with a dark novel readers are calling: "Beautifully written" -- "A Must Read!" -- "Stunning" -- "The Scariest book EVER!"

FORSKEN is an intelligent blend of ghost story, suburban supernatural thriller, haunted house, and mystery. Perfectly written for fans of early Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and Peter Straub, it's a terrifying tale of secrets and lies, of nightmares made flesh; where the scariest stories are the ones that coldly whisper into your ear until madness and death are a welcome rest.

Lock your door.

Turn on the lights.

Do NOT read FORSAKEN late at night.

DESCRIPTION:

It was like any other spring day in the quiet, peaceful community of Lapeer Parish, Louisiana. But for Sheriff Vic Ransonet it was the beginning of a nightmare. People were disappearing without a trace. Animals were being eaten right down to the bone. Lush fertile fields of crops were being stripped bare. But the sheriff knew the evil that lurked in the barns, sheds, and homes of the sleepy parish. He had seen the creatures with his own eyes. He had heard the clicking of their jaws, the signal that they were on the move to feed their ravenous appetites. And if he couldn't stop them, then every man, woman, and child would die, and Lapeer Parish would be wiped off the map.

DESCRIPTION:

In this republican country, amid the fluctuating waves of our social life, somebody is always at the drowning point.

Those words were true when Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote them in 1851, and they were true in 1933, when a fire burned half of Crook House to the ground, taking James Crook's wife and two sons with it. A disgraced bootlegger and former pro baseball player, James Crook returned from prison to find his house, and his life, a pile of cinders. Broken and insane, he rebuilt Crook House, putting his pain and loneliness into every timber.

But Hawthorne's words are still true today, and nobody knows that better than Dr. Robert Bell, who has just moved into Crook House as part of his hiring package from a small Texas college. He soon discovers that Crook House is more than just a new beginning for himself and Sarah and their daughter Angela. For the Bell family, Crook House is a place where the past still lives, and its horrors waiting for the next drowning man.

"When McKinney released Inheritance, he showed us all how a proper ghost story was supposed to be told. With Crooked House, he has proven that he is a master of the genre." - Revolt Daily

A pitch-black world where monsters lurk around every corner, and death is not an escape…

Naked on the beach, Lewis coughs seawater from his lungs. He moves his hands over his body, feeling for wounds that are no longer there. Bite wounds. Claw wounds. He listens for the sounds of their approach--the creatures in the dark. They're coming, he knows. And however far he might run, once the darkness finds him, once his blood is spilled, he'll hear the same crashing waves, taste the same seawater, wash up on the same shore, reborn to do it all over again...

Others like him say it's a curse. Someone with a grudge has sentenced him to an eternity in this place. Now, guided only by his firelight and the eccentric, sometimes dangerous personalities he meets along the way, Lewis must scour the darkness in search of answers, before the curse can swallow him whole forever.

Only the truth will light the way.

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:

The love affair between a neglected wife and a mysterious soldier is "a perfect ghost story" from the acclaimed author of The Siege and The Betrayal (The Independent).

In the winter of 1952, Isabel Carey moves to the East Riding of Yorkshire with her new husband, Philip, a doctor. While he spends long hours on call, Isabel finds herself lonely and vulnerable, trying to adjust to the realities of being a country housewife.

One evening, Isabel is woken by intense cold. Hunting for extra blankets, she discovers an old Royal Air Force greatcoat hidden in the back of a cupboard. Sleeping under the coat for warmth, she starts to dream and is soon startled by a knock at her window--where a young RAF pilot stands outside, wearing that same coat. His powerful presence both disturbs and excites Isabel. And soon, their unexpected connection sparks an affair that will change them both irreparably.

"Written in crisp, enthralling prose," The Greatcoat is an atmospheric tale of love and war that blurs the line between the real and the imaginary (The New Yorker).

"Dunmore's gift, familiar from The Siege and The Betrayal, is to use a finely drawn domestic setting to show the great events of European history on a human scale. She doesn't need ‘horror' to spook her readers; our past is bad enough." --The Guardian

"The most elegant flesh-creeper since The Woman in Black." --The Times (London)

"The sense of déjà vu surrounding the story makes it all the more chilling . . . Tense and engaging." --The New Yorker

DESCRIPTION:

In all the deepest pits and in all the rank, vile dungeons that make up the illusion of Hell, no fiend is more feared than the dread demon, and for good reason. These pitiless monsters feed on bile and blood, they lap up the screams of the damned, they corrupt and destroy and they hate with an unrelenting fury.
And to release one upon the world is the ultimate in black sin.
When Commander William Jern and his wife Gayle are given an opportunity to move into one of the spacious Colonial homes on the Village Green, they jump at the chance. Only the Jern's new dream home quickly becomes an icy nightmare, as death stalks them relentlessly. It comes unheralded out of the night, and like all of us, they are woefully unprepared. Yet regardless of his state of readiness, William Jern must face terrors beyond imagination in order to save his daughter whose body had become a frozen vessel for a horror summoned out of the great Void.
With the help of his son, Will, a boy struggling to find the courage to be a man, and an old woman who has foreseen the terrifying manner in which she will die, William undergoes the ultimate test to see how far a father will go to save his child.

What the readers say about The Horror of the Shade:

"From the first chapter, I was hooked. Creepy!!!"

"Good characters, and a great writing style that makes the book flow from one chapter to the next..."

"I loved the intensity of it, created through the striking details and excellent characters."

"If you love a ghost story that goes beyond the paranormal then you will love this book..."

What are those voices from the past? And why are they screaming at her?

It all started when she witnessed a car crash. A brutal smash which left a gorgeous young couple dead. But for Alice, it reawakened strange memories of childhood: a sinister old house, a dead boy in the woods and an other-worldly power lurking forever in the darkness.

Desperate to make sense of the bizarre pictures in her mind, Alice's enquires lead her to a hidden away clinic in the Surrey Hills. Within those walls though, are the terrifying secrets she's been running from her whole life.

Now, for Alice, the truth could not only break apart her sanity, it could destroy the whole world…


What are Ghostly Shadows?

They are that strange flicker you glimpse from the corner of your eye; that sound you're certain you hear in the dark of night in an empty house; they're the feeling of dread which races up and overwhelms you completely. Ghostly Shadows are all that's scary, disturbing, creepy and unsettling. Every fear and anxiety bound together, nebulous in form, but completely inescapable.

For me, Ghostly Shadows are the connective tissue for all my writing. Every one of my novels, novellas and short stories – be they horror or noir – is joined together through these Ghostly Shadows. There are a thousand such tales lurking in my consciousness, and I intend to write them all.

Certain Danger is the second of the Ghostly Shadows novellas. A brand new horror anthology series. The other three Ghostly Shadows novellas: Death at the Seaside; Won't You Come Save Me and Call of the Mandrake are for sale on Kindle now. While the first five Ghostly Shadows Shorts: Foliage; The Strange Fate of Lord Bruton; The Widow Ravens; Algernon Swafford – Private Investigator and Sacrifice at St. Nick's are also available.
