Murder and madness infect a small town

For sixteen-year-old Ruthie Stroud, life on tiny Hemlock Island in the Pacific Northwest is an endless sea of boring green, in a place where everybody knows everybody's business and nothing ever happens. Then her world is ripped apart when her parents divorce and a new man enters her mother's life. But worse is yet to come.

When she drifts ashore on the mainland, hideously burned, Ruthie has a harrowing tale to tell. It begins with the murder of a family. It ends with her being the sole survivor of a cataclysm that sweeps her little island. As a detective attempts to unravel Ruthie's story of murder and madness, only one horrifying conclusion can be drawn: whatever was isolated on remote Hemlock Island may now have come to the mainland. Is Ruthie safe? Is anyone?

Sixteen-year-old Claire Young is tormented by a recurring, prophetic nightmare and visitations from gruesome, mutilated ghosts.

DESCRIPTION:

Wicked Temper Creation is the big one. The one you dare not miss. The one your fevered dreams are made of.

In the long and jagged shadow of Riddle Top lies a darkling mountain world--a world of unholy mirth and madness, of gods and demons you never knew existed.

"Thornhorn, where the hell have you been?" ~ William Peter Blatty

Wicked Temper Creation is a towering, epic, and incredible Creation. A tapestry of Southern lives and Appalachian lore in the form and tradition of Pulp Fiction, The Martian Chronicles, Winesburg Ohio, The Illustrated Man, and Spoon River Anthology--the kind of sweeping and vast book described by visionary author Ray Bradbury as "a novel in stories". With hundreds of pages of never-before-published episodes and material, entwined and centered around the haunted region which surrounds the fearsome mountain known below as Riddle Top,

Wicked Temper Creation also includes an intricately plotted parade of classic Thornhorn chapters such as Johabeth's Holler, The Axman's Shift, Turpitude, The Hole And Dobber's Head (the longest fiction ever published in The Oxford American Magazine), culminating in the unforgettable climactic Southern Gothic classic, Wicked Temper. (If you've already read the short novel Wicked Temper, you will soon realize you have only scratched the surface of this disturbing yet delightfully weird world.)

"One of the South's wildest new voices." ~ The Oxford American

Opening with the lyric and foreboding chapter Who Child, these Thornhorn folk and their tales unfold and are interwoven as originally envisioned by the author, including vignettes like 3 Angels, Earla Vi, The Iceman's Blues, and Up Coffin Holler. This is a must-read for readers and fans of author Randy Thornhorn.

Finally, we are provided the full canvas of lovers and misfits and the lost mountain world that surrounds Riddle Top. Finally, we learn the full events, the phantoms and mysteries, that led to the acclaimed follow-up novel with two continued characters that inhabit The Kestrel Waters (A Tale of Love and Devil), which was chosen Best General Fiction Novel finalist by the 2015 Indie Book Awards.

From the introductory page:

"Here lies Wicked Temper as it were and were always meant to be." ~ Randy Thornhorn

When they arrive in the remote oil town of Deadhorse, the exec and a biologist to protect them from wild animals join the team. Their task: to assess the risk of more holes opening under the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and the wells and pipelines that feed it. But they discover a far worse danger lurks below. When it emerges, it threatens to shatter Jack's unshakable faith in science. And destroy us all…

Eddie Butcher is lawyer feeding off the bottom of Buffalo's criminal cesspool. He thinks of nothing but himself and is only motivated by that which can benefit him. He is an abuser, a womanizer, and a coward. He is also the last human being on an empty world.

Eddie awakens to find the streets of his city empty. Aside from the utter lack of life, the world is as it was the night before. There are no signs of an exodus, a plague, or a war of any kind. He is simply alone. Strange (and then terrifying) events conspire to force him to flee the city.

Taking only what he can pack into his car, Eddie finds himself on a nightmare journey across a barren America, guided by an interior compass that seems constantly drawn to the west.

As he travels, the world regresses around him, slowly spinning in the wrong direction. Accompanying this unraveling, Eddie also takes a journey backwards within himself, unlocking memories long buried in the humid root cellar of his deserted heart. Step by step, this broken, bitter man faces each new day, desperate to find a reprieve from his unwanted solitude.

FROM THE BEST-SELLING AUTHOR OF DEAD BEAT

There's a murderer loose in Greystones, a small estuary village tucked against the wintry, wooded trails of O'Halloran Hill. The gory body count begins to rise, sending the media into an all-out feeding frenzy. The village is swamped with police and onlookers, and everybody wants to catch ‘The Vampire Killer'.

While the hunt is on James Stixx and his partner-in-crime, Faye Burns discover that beneath the surface is a whole different story, a mystery that goes back decades. The teenagers find everyone has something to lose, or secrets to bury.

And all the while the vampire is waiting … choosing its moment to strike …

"Intense, atmospheric and gripping. From the start this novel grabs you and refuses to let go. I miss the novels I grew up with; Salem's Lot by Stephen King, Twilight Eyes by Dean Koontz and The Dark by James Herbert. No one writes good, small town horror anymore. Except for Remy Porter that is. This is a great novel. Quirky characters, a brooding small town, secrets galore – oh, and a vampire. The writing style is snappy and to the point, dialogue is spot on and the atmosphere of a small town in England is caught beautifully." ~ Derek Gunn, author of the Vampire Apocalypse and HMS Swift books

"A menacing, well-written tale of horror and mystery adventure. Salem's Lot meets the Hardy Boys." ~ V.M. Zito, author of The Return Man

It's 2098, and the American South is now the National Congregation of Theocratic Christianity, one of six autonomous nations created from the former United States. Shuttlesworth and Claybrooke are out-of-work psychiatrists who immigrated from the Northeast to make their fortunes in the Theocracy by pretending to be exorcists, secretly treating the "demon possessed" with black market psychotropic medications--for a hefty price.

Shuttlesworth, conflicted about swindling the Theocracy's poverty-stricken citizens, stumbles upon an underground revolutionary group, Kingdom Come, and becomes fascinated by their charismatic leader Raziel. On the eve of the revolution, Shuttlesworth and Claybrooke arrive at an exorcism to find the last thing they expect--a real demon. The creature is hellbent on destroying Raziel and the Kingdom Come movement, and he intends to use the two conmen to do it. To defeat the demon, they're both forced to attempt the riskiest cons of their lives--with an entire nation at stake.

Paul Gallo saw the report on the news: a mass murderer leading police to his victims’ graves, in remote Dread’s Hand, Alaska.

But the mystery is only beginning. What Paul finds are superstitious locals who talk of the devil stealing souls, and a line of wooden crosses to keep what’s in the woods from coming out. He finds no closure because no one can explain exactly what happened to Danny.

And the more he searches for answers, the more he finds himself becoming part of the mystery. . .

I began to suspect something was wrong with the gothic building when its family fled in the middle of the night, the children screaming, the mother crying. They never came back to pack up their furniture.

No family stays long. Animals avoid the place. Once, I thought I saw a woman's silhouette pacing through the upstairs room… but that seems impossible; no one was living there at the time.

A new occupant, Anna, has just moved in. I paid her a visit to warn her about the building. I didn't expect us to become friends, but we did. And now that Marwick House is waking up, she's asked me to stay with her.

I never intended to become involved with the building or its vengeful, dead inhabitant. But now I have to save Anna… before it's too late for the both of us.

In this eclectic assortment of flash fiction, Bram Stoker Award-winner Norman Prentiss concocts a different end-of-the-world scenario for each calendar day (Volume 1 covers January through March). The stories range from humorous to bizarre to unsettling, commemorating holiday and observance days (New Year's or Valentine's Day, National Pig Day), famous birthdays (Robert Frost, Charles Dickens), or notable historical events (the first computer...and the first computer virus). Other daily entries include a riff on the first (and only) golf game on the moon; and "The Milking of Elm Farm Ollie," which reinvigorates an in-flight publicity stunt by adding apocalyptic results.

Volume 1 includes more than 40,000 words of doomsday fiction, ready to be sampled in small doses just like the pages of those desk calendars you buy for 50%-off in February...or available all at once for your immediate binge-reading pleasure!

Book One of the Shadow Cove Saga

Inspired by Actual Events
Excerpt from the Journal of Clayton Stone – 1692
She was examined today without torture at Shadow Cove township on the charge of witchcraft. She said she was wholly innocent of the crime and has never in life renounced God. I watched as they brought her out. A poor, sickly thing, worn by her time behind the walls of her prison. Her bared feet and hands bound in leather, her clothing tattered to that of ruin. Despite such condition, her head was held high, her eyes meeting those of her accusers. Upon being stripped and examined, on her right side is found a bluish mark, much like a clover leaf; it was thrice pricked therein but she felt no pain and no blood flowed from the wound. She still refuses to provide her name so we remain unable to search baptismal records, nor has her family stepped forward to claim her as their own. We have no reason to believe she is anything but an orphaned child. I find myself unable to look at her directly in the moments preceding her trial. She is watching me though; with eyes of the deepest blue, she is watching me.

Thad McAlister, Rise of the Witch

When horror author Thad McAlister began his latest novel, a tale rooted in the witch trials of centuries past, the words flowed effortlessly. The story poured forth, filling page after page with the most frightening character ever to crawl from his imagination. It was his greatest work, one that would guarantee him a position among the legends of the craft.

But was it really fiction?

He inadvertently opened a door, one that would soon jeopardize the lives of his family.

She wants to come back.

At home, his wife struggles to keep their family alive. Secretly wondering if she caused it all…a deal she made long ago. A deal with the Forsaken.

The world has fallen beneath the rule of alien invaders. The remnants of humanity are divided into two camps: those who resist, and those serve.

Darrel Fines serves. He is a traitor, a turncoat who has betrayed his people, his wife, and most of all, himself. In this new world order, in which humanity is at the very bottom, Fines is a lawman for the violent and grotesque conquerors.

When the offspring of the Marque goes missing, Fines is charged with locating and recovering the alien. Caught in the crosshairs of a subdued worker's camp and the resistance cell that he was once allied with, Fines is forced to choose between a life of servility and a life of honor. [Note: The Marque is a short story of approx. 12,000 words. This story was previously published in Crime & Punishment: A Speculative Fiction Anthology.]

DESCRIPTION:

Seventy-five years ago, a family of three disappeared from their remote English home. Blood was left smeared all over the floors and walls, but despite an extensive search, their bodies were never found.

Now the house is ready to kill again.

On the run from his creditors, Owen Richards moves his wife and daughter out to the same house. Despite the strange portrait of an old man in the hallway, and the faint ticking sound coming from the walls, he insists that the house offers a perfect chance for them to start afresh.

Before their first night in their new home is over, however, Owen and his family are going to come face-to-face with the diabolical creation of a long-dead old man. Deadly dangers lurk in every room, and the constant ticking sound is just the first hint of a much greater monstrosity. No-one has ever managed to survive the house, or to outsmart its creator. And beneath the house, a horrific mechanism predicts every move the Richards family might make as they desperately try to escape.

The Blood House is a horror novella about three people trapped in a nightmare, and about an old man who was willing to stop at nothing in his quest to be remembered as a great genius.

DESCRIPTION:

A VAMPIRE STORY LIKE NO OTHER…
It is 1914. Dr Joseph Aymon returns to his youthful haunts in Transylvania where he used to accompany the famous vampire-killer, Professor Van Helting, on his vampire hunts. In a world fast throwing off the superstitious clutches of medieval terrors and mythical monsters, Joseph is on a personal quest to prove the existence of vampires. The new sciences, with their cold exploration of the demons which lurk in the recesses of the mind, have mercilessly dismissed the old certainties of evil and purity which Joseph and his master still cling to. Joseph is eager to re-habilitate his and the Professor's reputation. He can't wait to come face-to-face with the Undead, and prove all his detractors wrong. It is also his aim to discover the whereabouts of Bella, his first and only love, who vanished years ago, in mysterious circumstances… His quest brings him into contact with a host of characters: the daunting, chilling figure of Count Drace; his voluptuous wife, the Countess; her thin-lipped, haughty and depraved niece, Grimelda; the enigmatic, beguiling figure of the Mother Superior of the local convent; Thomas, the man-servant harbouring a shocking secret... Will Joseph find what he's looking for, and, if he does, will that discovery bring him release, justification, more derision, or plain, unadulterated horror? A vampire story like no other…
