DESCRIPTION:

"An extraordinary novel sure to enchant readers of Sarah Waters as well as those looking for a thrilling and transporting gothic tale." --Julia Fierro, author of The Gypsy Moth Summer

The author of The Man Who Noticed Everything, an award-winning collection of short stories, presents his debut work of full-length fiction, "a witty and disturbing horror novel . . . as if Henry James had written an issue of Tales from the Crypt" (Bennett Sims, author of A Questionable Shape).

Loosely based on the lives of spirit photographer William H. Mumler and his wife, Shadows in Summerland transports readers to 1859 Boston, where those who promise access to the otherworldly--mediums, spiritualists, and psychics--are celebrated. This embrace of illusion and intrigue provides the perfect hunting ground for con artists and charlatans--men like William Mumler.

When William teams up with Hannah, a shy young girl who sees and manifests the dead, they are welcomed into the drawing rooms of the city's elite. But the couple's newfound fame and fortune draw grifters and rogues into their circle, including someone who will bring the afterlife closer to them than they could ever imagine.

Spanning three decades, Shadows in Summerland "recalls an era no less gullible than the present one . . . Van Young's prose skillfully illuminates his gothic tale of greed, obsession, and murder" (Publishers Weekly).

"A fabulous and weird addition to the contemporary fantastic." --Laird Barron, author of Black Mountain

DESCRIPTION:

Sebastian "Seb" McAlister has run out of luck in Vegas. Cornered by a trigger-happy gang and shot through the stomach, he makes a desperate escape in his supercharged Hellcat. Fate guides Seb safely out of Sin City and into the desert, but as his wheels fade into the horizon, he fades into darkness.

He awakes among a tiny community in the middle of nowhere. A mountain range circles the hodgepodge of shacks like prison walls looming high. And the warden that resides in those mountains is big, ugly, and deadly--a creature straight out of a Lovecraftian nightmare.

If Seb hopes to escape that wayward way station, he'll need enough cunning to outwit a force beyond comprehension… and a fast car. With a little luck and a ragtag group of would-be monster mashers racing alongside him, Seb just might have a shot of making it through the mountains alive.

DESCRIPTION:

A plot against England that even the genius of H. G. Wells could not have imagined.

It's 1914. The Great War grips the world--and from the Western Front a strange story emerges…a story of St. George and a brigade of angels descending from heaven to fight beside the beleaguered British troops. But can there be any truth to it?

H. G. Wells, the most celebrated writer of his day--author of The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, The Invisible Man--is dispatched to find out. There, he finds an eerie wasteland inhabited by the living, the dead, and those forever stranded somewhere in between…a no-man's-land whose unhappy souls trail him home to London, where a deadly plot, one that could turn the tide of war, is rapidly unfolding.

In league with his young love, the reporter and suffragette Rebecca West, Wells must do battle with diabolical forces--secret agents and depraved occultists--to save his sanity, his country, and ultimately the world.

A horrific crime that defies explanation, a rookie FBI agent in uncharted territory, and an extraordinary hero for the ages: an investigation spirals out of control in this heart-pounding thriller.
Odessa Hardwicke's life is derailed when she's forced to turn her gun on her partner, Walt Leppo, a decorated FBI agent who turns suddenly, inexplicably violent while apprehending a rampaging murderer. The shooting, justified by self-defense, shakes the young FBI agent to her core. Devastated, Odessa is placed on desk leave pending a full investigation. But what most troubles Odessa isn't the tragedy itself -- it's the shadowy presence she thought she saw fleeing the deceased agent's body after his death.
Questioning her future with the FBI and her sanity, Hardwicke accepts a low-level assignment to clear out the belongings of a retired agent in the New York office. What she finds there will put her on the trail of a mysterious figure named Hugo Blackwood, a man of enormous means who claims to have been alive for centuries, and who is either an unhinged lunatic, or humanity's best and only defense against unspeakable evil.
From the authors who brought you The Strain Trilogy comes a strange, terrifying, and darkly wondrous world of suspense, mystery, and literary horror. The Hollow Ones is a chilling, spell-binding tale, a hauntingly original new fable from Academy Award-winning director Guillermo del Toro and bestselling author Chuck Hogan featuring their most fascinating character yet.

DESCRIPTION:

Ordshaw's not like other cities. But don't tell them you know that.

Pax is one one rent cheque and six days away from the rough streets of Ordshaw. A big poker score should've settled that – if a vagrant hadn't mugged her and been promptly abducted by spooks.

She's got connections with the Ordshaw underworld who know how to track people down. But all Pax turns up is otherworldly technology and a book of fiercely imagined monsters.

On the plus side, her involvement puts her in the crosshairs of both a shady government Ministry and the thief's mysterious partners, so she's got those leads going for her. Between keeping herself alive and trying to make head or tail or the rumours of a subterranean labyrinth, Pax discovers her city hosts a whole other kind of underworld.

People have disappeared simply for discovering what's lurking under Ordshaw.

To survive, Pax needs to go a lot further than that.

Under Ordshaw is the first entry in a richly imagined urban fantasy series packed with incredible characters and unusual creatures. The first complete trilogy is available now, featuring twists and turns, heart-pounding adventure and mercenary fairies that you'll find impossible to resist.

Stanley's lonely.

Before the strange events of the past few months, the self-proclaimed alien abductee and T.V. crime drama aficionado would drink and bowl with his friends, Herb and Dallas. But no one's seen hide nor hair of Dallas in the longest, and Herb's been spending all of his time with his girlfriend, Lois.

That just leaves Stanley, and Stanley's lonely.

Everything changes when Stanley becomes a zombie. With each bite, he gains a new friend. Soon, he has more friends than he would've ever thought possible. If he could just sink his teeth into Herb, Lois, and Dallas, they'd all be together again, and everything would be perfect.

Meanwhile...

Everything changes when Stanley's home is vandalized. After someone breaks all of his dinner plates and ruins his last hotdog, a zombie apocalypse overtakes Trappersville. To make matters worse, the Society shows up. Stanley and his supernatural friends are trapped between an ancient order of monster hunters and a hungry zombie horde. If that wasn't bad enough, one zombie in particular looks a lot like Stanley.

Things aren't looking good for the fine folks of Trappersville, Wisconsin. Will Stanley, his friends, and the entire town be lost?

Over Stanley's dead bodies.

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:

"Violent, messy, deep, beautiful." - Planar Pen, UK

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.

In this small town, keeping secrets is a matter of life or death…

East St. Louis deputy Patrick O'Shea is tired of living in the line of fire. So when he gets a chance to transfer to his wife's small hometown, he doesn't hesitate to load up the moving van. But his family's bags are barely unpacked before their newfound peace and quiet shatters in a surge of demonic voices…

The deputy has faced his fair share of evil, but nothing quite like this. Normally the first into the fray, he worries they've unearthed a force not even his special training and inner-city experience can combat…

Can Patrick protect his family from supernatural foes, or will a festering evil consume the ones he loves most?
