DESCRIPTION:

he town of Bringham--once a peaceful, God-fearing community, suddenly finds itself in a major crisis.

Strange things are happening which defy logic even in the slightest sense of the word. Yet, one resident has seen the devastation before-hand and knows that if something isn't done quickly to eradicate the evil that is upon them, the town they know and love will be a distant, tragic memory.

What no one can possibly fathom is that the seemingly pious and good-natured may be the reason the darkness has found its way to Bringham in the first place.

As you pay close attention to this story, each episode will bring you closer and closer to the truth.

DESCRIPTION:

It's a time to say goodbye.

Krista Forrester and her family return to her childhood lake house to say goodbye to her dying grandfather. His last wish is to spend his final days surrounded by family. It's a time to reminisce, a time for togetherness and love. But the family's return awakens both forgotten memories and the unsettled spirits tied to the land.

Sometimes memories are better left buried.

Krista never wanted to return to the lake house. She hasn't been back since Breann, her childhood friend, disappeared from the sandy beach right outside her back door. Her disappearance left behind both lingering sorrow and many unanswered questions. Was Breann a victim of a now-convicted serial killer? Will Krista and her family succumb to the evil bound to the lake house? Is Breann still somewhere close, waiting to be discovered? What are those melancholic little whispers Krista hears in the middle of the night?

Only by confronting the tragedies of the past can Krista guarantee her family's future.

DESCRIPTION:

"Among the most enjoyable short stories that I have read in the past few years... I thought their approach subtle, but still, they managed to pack one heck of a punch." - HorrorWorld

...A woman whose life is shaped and doomed by the "Calling of the Moon"...
...A girl who learns the secret powers of the "Seven Deadly Seeds"...
...A boy who finds that the power of music can open a hidden world thanks to a flute hidden in the attic...
...A man who learns the meaning behind the voodoo curse that brings the "Vigilantes of Love" from the hearts of the New Orleans swamps to punish the adulterers under the light of the full moon...

Vigilantes of Love offers these and many more tales of dark magic, the macabre and things that happen when you go one step beyond.

Vigilantes of Love was first issued in 2003 by Chicago-based Twilight Tales, just a year before a limited edition of Everson's first novel, the Bram Stoker Award-winning Covenant, was released by Delirium Books.

This collection focuses more on dark fantasy than the more extreme erotic horror of his first short fiction collection, Cage of Bones & Other Deadly Obsessions. The 2013 10th Anniversary Edition also includes six never-before-collected Everson tales -- including his first horror publication, "Learning To Build" -- alongside Vigilantes' original 15 dark fantasy and horror stories.

The book offers both light fantasy and the macabre including the voodoo-zombie oriented title story, written especially for the collection, "Calling of the Moon," which received an Honorable Mention in the Year's Best Fantasy & Horror anthology, and "Lovesong" a 5th Place winner in the 2000 World Horror Convention Fiction Contest.

DESCRIPTION:

Seven gods, seven moons, seven tribes, and one planet.

Each moon orbiting the planet Chancel is the sovereign domain of one of the gods, and when a human dies on the planet, they are resurrected into lunar life on the moon of their tribe's deity.

For Rin'za, an initiate oracle of a time-scrying agency, life on Chancel is peaceful and predictable. Then he receives a prophecy that a child sacrifice from millennia ago will return to Chancel with a warning that Mukjal, the god of death, is plotting an attack that will claim both the first and lunar lives of all Chancelites.

To thwart the plans of the bloodthirsty god, Rin'za and a party of unlikely heroes must find the child and travel to Mukjal's hellish moon, Scab, to find proof of the plot. Can twin warrior-priestesses, one disfigurer, a dead child, and an initiate oracle survive the horrors of the death god's realm? If they bring back evidence can they convince the bickering tribes of Chancel to unite against an unprecedented threat?

"You won't want to put it down -- and you probably won't either until there are no more pages to turn." ~ Thomas E. Kennedy, author of In the Company of Angels, Falling Sideways, and Kerrigan in Copenhagen
"A dark fantasy bildungsroman in the tradition of Stephen King's It and Robert McCammon's Boy's Life"

In the late 1970s, Joe Godwin was just twelve years old, living in a working-class neighborhood. Plagued by bullies and a volatile home life, Joe spends his time with his three friends in search of adventure.

The discovery of an abandoned mansion during a simple camping trip in a state forest sets of a series of consequences in motion between the boys, inhabitants of the mansion, and the others who occupy the garden behind the colossal home.

DESCRIPTION:

AN ANTHOLOGY OF HORROR INSPIRED BY 1980'S SCHLOCK!

An anthology of short stories based upon/inspired by and in loving homage to all of those great gorefest movies and books of the 1980's (not necessarily based in that era, although some do ride that wave of nostalgia!), the golden age when horror well and truly came kicking, screaming and spraying blood, gore & body parts out from the shadows...

It was the decade that brought us everything in the cinema and on VHS from the Italian 'nasties' to Elm Street, The Lost Boys, Hellraiser, The Thing, Day of the Dead, Reanimator, Return of the Living Dead, My Bloody Valentine, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, Cannibal Holocaust….and superlative directors such as David Cronenburg, John Waters, Roger Corman and - of course - Clive Barker.

All of this was, naturally, reflected in the books we devoured - Guy N Smith, Clive Barker's Books of Blood, James Herbert, Jack Ketchum, Gary Brandner, and Richard Laymon, to name but a mere handful.
This exemplary 80's themed/inspired tales of terror has been adjudicated and compiled by one Mr. Bret McCormick, himself a writer, producer, and director of many a schlock classic, including Bio-Tech Warrior, Time Tracers, The Abomination, Ozone: The Attack of the Redneck Mutants and the inimitable Repligator.

So, you get the picture - within this weighty tome, we have the darkest splatter, most horrific gruesomeness and stomach-churning detail, all wrapped up in gripping stories played out by the strongest of characters - all of which will keep even the hardiest of souls wide awake and trembling in the wee hours.

Featuring stories from:

Todd Sullivan, Timothy C Hobbs, Mark Thomas, Andrew Post, James B. Pepe, Thomas Vaughn, Edward Karpp, Jaap Boekestein, Lisa Alfano, L.C.Holt, John Adam Gosham, Brandon Cracraft, M. Earl Smith, Sarah Cannavo, James Gardner, Bret McCormick, and James H Longmore.

DESCRIPTION:

Everyone but Sophia and Cyrus were going to die. They were all goners well before they knew it. And they certainly thought whatever was happening, they were helping others and saving the world doing it.

Samantha was only fourteen and looking for what every fourteen-year-old looks for-- freedom. She wanted to be as far away from her substance-riddled mother and abusive home as possible, but she never asked for anything like this. It always starts with just one person and one fucked up idea. This is the story about Samantha and the cult called Freedom House.

A psychological horror thriller, this book will frustrate you, scare you, disturb you, and at times, it will make you want to be ill. Are you ready to learn what's going on behind the doors of Freedom House?

"A deeply disturbing premise, uniquely presented, cunningly plotted, and with chilling detail. A progression and ramp up that's all too plausible – this one's going to stick with me. Not for the faint of heart."
-Laurel Hightower-Wells, author of Whispers in the Dark

DESCRIPTION:

Soon to be a New HBO® Series from J.J. Abrams (Executive Producer of Westworld), Misha Green (Creator of Underground) and Jordan Peele (Director of Get Out)

The critically acclaimed cult novelist makes visceral the terrors of life in Jim Crow America and its lingering effects in this brilliant and wondrous work of the imagination that melds historical fiction, pulp noir, and Lovecraftian horror and fantasy.

Chicago, 1954. When his father Montrose goes missing, 22-year-old Army veteran Atticus Turner embarks on a road trip to New England to find him, accompanied by his Uncle George--publisher of The Safe Negro Travel Guide--and his childhood friend Letitia. On their journey to the manor of Mr. Braithwhite--heir to the estate that owned one of Atticus's ancestors--they encounter both mundane terrors of white America and malevolent spirits that seem straight out of the weird tales George devours.

At the manor, Atticus discovers his father in chains, held prisoner by a secret cabal named the Order of the Ancient Dawn--led by Samuel Braithwhite and his son Caleb--which has gathered to orchestrate a ritual that shockingly centers on Atticus. And his one hope of salvation may be the seed of his--and the whole Turner clan's--destruction.

A chimerical blend of magic, power, hope, and freedom that stretches across time, touching diverse members of two black families, Lovecraft Country is a devastating kaleidoscopic portrait of racism--the terrifying specter that continues to haunt us today.

When the knife blades glisten

And scared children listen

To hear slayers in the night

Where sugarplums can be gory

And trees eat favorite household pets

There are gifts on all the pages

Of terror through the ages

Told of gift giving regrets


I'm dreaming of a Dark Christmas

With every little tale I read

While the bright lights shine

And the family dines In the soft fireplace glow

So hold loved ones tight

It's not Santa visiting tonight

Death lies buried in the snow.
