DESCRIPTION:

A disturbing story based on a true haunting the author himself experienced.

In 2016, John Davidson and his family moved to Skipton Road, a quiet cul-de-sac situated within the heart of a northern industrial town. They had no idea of what evil terrors awaited them. Things seemed normal at first, apart from the pungent smell of rotten flesh in their kitchen, recurring scratch marks along the walls, and an overwhelming sense of always being watched by someone or "something". Overtime, through a series of vivid nightmares and intrusive whispers, the Davidsons came to learn of a malignant menace that still dwelled within their new home – a witch named Sabina, who sought out vengeance upon those whom had betrayed her in life, along with an ancient demon... Sabina's ‘Master'. Throughout these horrific events, John struggled against his growing depression, his new reliance on alcohol, and the overall strong desire to keep his family from falling apart – which it was. This terrifying period in their lives would forever haunt the Davidsons, as it did with countless other victims before them.

In reading this book, you will bear witness to an actual haunting that took place, its lasting effect on those involved, and one that many people can verify. Some, including the author, would argue that Sabina and the ancient demon do exist... it's up to you as the reader to decide.

Set in the North East of England. Names of characters and certain places have been changed to protect identities.

Available Through May 25 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:

No memory. No pulse. No clue.

The undead private eye everybody calls "Braineater Jones" has an axe to grind. Somebody plugged him and dumped his corpse in a swimming pool.

Worse yet, his memory's gone. He has no idea who killed him or why.

But he's damn sure going to find out.

With a smartass severed head as a partner, Jones hangs up his shingle in the city's undead quarter. When he's not solving cases (poorly) Jones is always looking to keep his flask full.

Prohibition is in full swing, and the dead need alcohol to function. Without liquor they become mindless, flesh-munching ghouls. (In a word: braineaters.)

Everything will probably be fine. The investigation into his own murder probably won't point Jones toward the city's most important bootlegger.

And even if it does, it's not like he'll risk cutting off the hooch just to seek justice for himself, right? No one man's life is worth unleashing a cannibalistic orgy of violence. Right?

Cracking this case will be a tall order, but one thing's for sure: whatever happens, Braineater Jones isn't getting out of this one alive…

The Doll-Master: And Other Tales of Terror Joyce Carol Oates

BARGAIN

Available Through May 23 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:

This Bram Stoker Award–winning collection is “certain to stick in your mind long after you’ve turned the last page” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch).
 
Includes “Big Momma,” a finalist for the International Thriller Writers Award for Best Short Story
 
Here are six of Joyce Carol Oates’s most “frightening—and deeply disturbing—short stories” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette). In the titular story, a boy becomes obsessed with his cousin’s doll after her tragic death. As he grows older, he begins to collect “found dolls” from surrounding neighborhoods . . . each with its own sinister significance.
 
In “Gun Accident,” a teenage girl is delighted to house-sit for her favorite teacher, until an intruder forces his way inside—changing more than one life forever. The collection closes with the taut tale of a mystery bookstore owner whose designs on a rare bookshop in scenic New Hampshire devolve into a menacing game with real-life consequences. “At the heart of each story is a predator-prey relationship, and what makes them so terrifying is that most of us can easily picture ourselves as the prey, at least at some time during our lives” (Minneapolis Star-Tribune).
 
“Everything she writes, in whatever genre, has an air of dread, because she deals in vulnerabilities and inevitabilities, in the desperate needs that drive people . . . to their fates. A sense of helplessness is the essence of horror, and Oates conveys that feeling as well as any writer around.” —Terrence Rafferty, The New York Times Book Review
 
“One of the stranger parts of the human condition may be our deep fascination, and at times troubling exploration, of the darker aspects of our nature . . . No other author explores the ugly, and at times, blazingly unapologetic underbelly of these impulses quite like Joyce Carol Oates in The Doll-Master.” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
 
“In her new collection . . . [Oates] relishes moments of gothic melodrama, while rooting them firmly in grindingly ordinary American lives.” —The Guardian
 
“Oates convincingly demonstrates her mastery of the macabre with this superlative story collection . . . This devil’s half-dozen of dread and suspense is a must read.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

DESCRIPTION:

As a former Special Agent within a shadow branch of the government, Cooper M. Reid's work took him to some odd places…researching time vortexes in Kansas, demons in Norway, and UFOs in Jerusalem. The work only got weirder when he decided to go rogue and start investigating for himself.

So it came as no real surprise when he disappeared one year ago.

Now that he has re-appeared, Cooper has no recollection of what happened to him. All he knows is that he is now driven to help those that are being tormented by the paranormal, and that he needs to stay hidden from the people he once worked for.

In Dark Water, Cooper finds himself drawn to a a beach-side community in North Carolina where children are drowning by inexplicable means. While the deaths are certainly tragic, the real horror lies in what drew the children to the ocean in the first place.

I'm a therapist, and I work with the most dangerous patients.

I've seen it all... A boy who planned to be the next school shooter. A patient with OCD whose loved ones really did suffer every time he missed a ritual. A choir boy who claimed he was being molested -- not by a priest -- but by God Himself. A patient with PTSD who gave me nightmares. A husband and wife who accused each other of abuse, and only one of them was telling the truth.

And how could I ever forget, Patient #220.

The problem is, my patients have a habit of dying. Sometimes I wonder if I'm the common denominator. Or maybe that's just the cost of taking on exceptionally broken clients.

Either way, I'll never stop trying to help.

Twenty years ago, the mysterious death of his aunt left Aaron Holbrook orphaned and alone. He abandoned his rural Arkansas hometown vowing never to return, until his seven-year-old son died in an accident, plunging Aaron into a nightmare of addiction and grief.

Plagued by violent dreams and disturbing visions, Aaron begins to wonder if he's losing his mind. But a festering darkness lurks at the heart of Holbrook House…a darkness that grins from within the shadows, delighting in Aaron's sorrow, biding its time.
