DESCRIPTION:

How far will four friends go for immortality? This novel is Hugo and Nebula Award–winning author "Robert Silverberg at his very best" (George R. R. Martin).

After Eli, a scholarly college student, finds and translates an ancient manuscript called The Book of Skulls, he and his friends embark on a cross-country trip to Arizona in search of a legendary monastery where they hope to find the secret of immortality. On the journey with Eli, there's Timothy, an upper-class WASP with a trust fund and a solid sense of entitlement; Ned, a cynical poet and alienated gay man; and Oliver, a Kansas farm boy who escaped his rural origins and now wants to escape death.

If they can find the House of Skulls where immortal monks allegedly reside, they'll undergo a rigorous initiation. But do those eight grinning skulls mean the joke will be on them? For a sacrifice will be required. Two must die so that two may live forever . . .

Stretching the boundary between science fiction and horror, Robert Silverberg masterfully probes deeper existential questions of morality, brotherhood, and self-determined destiny in what Harlan Ellison refers to as "one of my favorite nightmare novels."

DESCRIPTION:

Having won his emancipation after fighting on the side of the colonies during the American Revolution, Salem Hawley is a free man. Only a handful of years after the end of British rule, Hawley finds himself drawn into a new war unlike anything he has ever seen.



New York City is on the cusp of a new revolution as the science of medicine advances, but procuring bodies for study is still illegal. Bands of resurrectionists are stealing corpses from New York cemeteries, and women of the night are disappearing from the streets, only to meet grisly ends elsewhere.



After a friend's family is robbed from their graves, Hawley is compelled to fight back against the wave of exhumations plaguing the Black cemetery. Little does he know, the theft of bodies is key to far darker arts being performed by the resurrectionists. If successful, the work of these occultists could spell the end of the fledgling American Experiment… and the world itself.



The Resurrectionists, the first book in the Salem Hawley series, is a novella of historical cosmic horror from the author of Broken Shells and Mass Hysteria.

Emancipated during the American Revolution, Salem Hawley is a free man--until he finds himself indebted to a doctor for treatment for injuries incurred during the New York Doctors' Riot. Recruited to recover the stolen grimoire, Al Azif, Salem embarks on a journey north, to Arkham, Massachusetts.


Plagued by rain and the incursion of strange, otherworldly creatures, the seaside town of Arkham has become a dark and dangerous place. Unable to trust the locals, Hawley is forced to rely on only his wits to track down the thief. He must also contend with Louise LeMarché, an outcast and suspected witch who is searching for the missing tome, as well.


Time is against Hawley. Something ancient and evil is rising from the depths of the Atlantic, and if Al Azif is not recovered quickly, it could spell doom to Arkham… and all of humanity.


Borne of the Deep, the second book in the Salem Hawley series, is a novella of Lovecraftian cosmic horror and continues the story that began in The Resurrectionists.

The End by Nick Harlow

FREE

Available Through June 30 at

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:

TV reporter Rachel Singer knows what happens to people after they die.

That's because Judgment Day has arrived, and a messenger from heaven has given her the exclusive.

Except the people of earth will be judged not by God but each other. The good will judge the bad.

The ultimate payback.

It's a perfect storm for the world of television news, a story that grabs the entire planet by the throat and won't let go. Doesn't hurt that the upcoming Presidential election falls during the judgment period.

But when a handful of Hollywood liberals survive the judgments and a few popular televangelists are sent off to non-existence, some see a political agenda and wonder why a true messenger from God would choose a lesbian reporter to be his conduit. They claim the messenger is a false prophet, or even Satan himself.

Faith becomes the top issue in the election, with each candidate trying to spin the judgment process for his own personal gain. The news coverage deteriorates into a campaign of religious beliefs, with networks taking sides, while Rachel becomes the lightning rod. The final battle of good versus evil is fought via satellite.

How will Rachel's integrity and faith stand up under the attacks? And what will happen to society after the messenger thins the herd by a few billion people?
That's the premise of "The End"... a look at blind faith, hypocrisy, the politics of religion, and how television news can easily tailor the facts to affect what we believe.

BARGAIN

Available Through June 30 at

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:

Today the names of H. P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, August Derleth, and Clark Ashton Smith, all regular contributors to the pulp magazine Weird Tales during the first half of the twentieth century, are recognizable even to casual readers of the bizarre and fantastic. And yet despite being more popular than them all during the golden era of genre pulp fiction, there is another author whose name and work have fallen into obscurity: Seabury Quinn.

Quinn's short stories were featured in well more than half of Weird Tales's original publication run. His most famous character, the supernatural French detective Dr. Jules de Grandin, investigated cases involving monsters, devil worshippers, serial killers, and spirits from beyond the grave, often set in the small town of Harrisonville, New Jersey. In de Grandin there are familiar shades of both Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot, and alongside his assistant, Dr. Samuel Trowbridge, de Grandin's knack for solving mysteries—and his outbursts of peculiar French-isms (grand Dieu!)—captivated readers for nearly three decades.

Collected for the first time in trade editions, The Complete Tales of Jules de Grandin, edited by George Vanderburgh, presents all ninety-three published works featuring the supernatural detective. Presented in chronological order over five volumes, this is the definitive collection of an iconic pulp hero.

The first volume, The Horror on the Links, includes all of the Jules de Grandin stories from “The Horror on the Links" (1925) to “The Chapel of Mystic Horror" (1928), as well as an introduction by George Vanderburgh and Robert Weinberg.

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:

From world renowned horror author Ramsey Campbell (Alone with the Horrors, Ancient Images) comes a frightening new psychological horror novella, third book in the ongoing Black Labyrinth imprint illustrated by Santiago Caruso.

Kiefer is desperate for a job when he comes upon an opening at a curious bookstore in England, BOOKS ARE LIFE. He approaches the owner for a job and gets it, learning quickly that the owner is stranger than the books that he sells in the shop. As he continues to help the bookstore's transition to the internet, he discovers oddities in the shop and has increasingly strange visions and encounters.

This bookstore is very unique, like its owner, and it will bring to Kiefer the most intense and revealing era of his life. From master storyteller Ramsey Campbell comes this brooding and frightening psychological horror novella accompanied by five original color illustrations by Santiago Caruso.

"As the dread builds, the effect is dizzying, claustrophobic, and very scary. Prescribing to his own rule of ‘avoiding what's been done to death', The Booking shows Campbell in top form with a strange and creepy tale that lingers long after the last page is turned." – This is Horror

"Ramsey held me throughout (The Booking) with his usual mixture of paranoia, word play, psychology, and human relationships. With books at the heart of things, I will add this to my still-growing pile of 'favourites.'" – Dread Central

"The Booking is a novella that packs more creepy and unearthly writing into a small package than most full-length novels ever hope to achieve." – The Horror Zine

"Highly recommended for lovers of psychological horror and of books." – Monster Librarian

"(The Booking is) much more than a single tome. You'll read it twice or more, on each occasion with a different sensation, a different takeaway conclusion, and a renewed appreciation of Campbell's great mastery of English prose and multi-layered fiction. I loved every word of it." – Gary Fry, author of Savage and Menace
