DESCRIPTION:

What if there was some truth in fairy tales? What if that truth wasn't very nice?

For six months, homicide detective Ethan Calhoun worked a serial murder case: six young women killed, stuffed and adorned with candy in a gruesome homage to the fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel. The police had no leads, the town was in a panic and Ethan was stuck with a front row seat to the carnage until a call from a witness offered him a possible break. He left to follow up on the tip... and never came back.

Everyone thinks that Ethan is dead, taken by the same monster he was hunting, but the truth is more horrible than anyone could have ever imagined. Trapped in a strange world inhabited by fairy tale creatures, Ethan fights to hang on even as he feels his grip on reality slipping away from him. Tortured, alone and on the brink of madness, he finds companionship from the most unlikely of creatures: the Big Bad Wolf. With the help of his only friend in this awful place, Ethan begins to hone a deadly part of his nature to a razor's edge that could either save or destroy him.

Left behind in the wake of his disappearance is his guilt-ridden brother, Justin. He is determined to find out what happened to his brother so he can put Ethan to rest even if he could not save his life. As Justin digs through the dust of Ethan's life, he realizes that the brother he thought he knew was only the tip of the iceberg and things he thought Ethan had long outgrown never truly went away.

Two brothers, each in their own hell, each whispering through the door, desperate to be heard, must fight to find the truth--both in themselves and in each other. The path through the darkest part of the forest is long and dangerous; without one another neither will survive the final confrontation.

Bitter Sweets is a horrific walk through an enchanted forest where "The End" never means the story is over; only that the nightmare has begun.

A collection of four extraordinary stories, not one of which travels a predictable route.

On a weekend jaunt with her parents, a 15-year-old girl shoplifts from the wrong souvenir shop. The consequences aren't immediate, but a disconcerted Frankie Spitz soon discovers how overpowering an unexpected punishment can be.

Marleen lives an isolated existence except for work and her best friend. "Little Sister" follows a day in Marleen's life, as revelations surface and things that seemed obvious at the start begin to blur.

A glimmer appears in the center of a boy's bedroom, not quite a ghost, not quite ANYthing that Tommy can name. Except that he knows it's a girl, and that she's trying her best to communicate with him. In "Catching Lisette", Tommy chases explanations for his phantom visitor, never anticipating the beguiling answers to his questions.

The fourth tale in this 22,000-word collection is "Photo Finish." Rosalie Turner's about to field the biggest curveball life's ever thrown at her! Mysterious strangers are showing up in her photographs; are the reasons for this rooted in her past? In the Bad Thing that Rosalie never meant to do 19 years before? Or is there a simpler explanation? Rosalie, along with her daughter Jenna, tries to massage clarity out of an enigma, and ends up exploring not only her past, but also her present life. Events conspire to overtake her speculations, though, and Rosalie ends up understanding all too much.

A fabulous read with well-drawn characters and plots. These are four thrilling stories!

Walt Erickson is a famous author whose books are read by millions of adoring fans, but he has never written a word of his own novels. The secret behind his novels is the stuff of nightmares.

The Wordsmith is a thrilling and darkly innovative story of suspense, one that will force you to wonder if we can ever truly know the whole story behind the people we love. Is it possible to unearth the darkest details of ourselves and still come out alive?

As Walt's hunger for fame continues to grow, and his girlfriend begins to suspect the unsettling truth behind his words, the tenuous threads holding Walt's life together begin to fray.

From the astoundingly imaginative mind of Alan Ayer, The Wordsmith is a gripping narrative that dares to peer into the shadows of the darkest aspects of humanity. Our story--our fate in life--is often written against our will.

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 a brilliant new voice in horror comes a riveting nightmare of ancient evil unleashed—and the bravery and sacrifice of those called to combat it.
 
In 1948, when he was just a boy, Jimmy Kalmaku trained with his uncle to be the shaman of his Tlingit village in Alaska. There he learned the old legends, the old myths, the old secrets. Chief among them was that of a mask locked in a prison of ice, and of the faceless god imprisoned within: a cruel and vengeful god called T'Nathluk, dedicated to the infliction of pain and suffering.
 
Now all but forgotten in a Seattle retirement home, Jimmy finds his life turned upside down. For when an unwitting archaeologist pries the mask free of its icy tomb, he frees T’Nathluk as well. Stuck in spirit form, the Faceless One seeks a human to serve as a portal through which he can enter our reality. The Faceless One can control—and mercilessly torture—anyone who touches the mask, which means there is no shortage of slaves to ferry it across the country to its chosen host.
 
Yet the Faceless One has foes as well: Stan Roberts, a tough New York cop whose pursuit of justice will lead him into a dark abyss of the soul; Steven, Liz, and Bobby, the family of the doomed archaeologist; and Jimmy Kalmaku, who must at last become the shaman of his boyhood dreams.

Praise for The Faceless One
 
“A stunning debut . . . With The Faceless One, Mark Onspaugh has given us a chilling dark fantasy with an Alaskan shamanic backdrop. The beauty of this weird world is as profound as its terror. I could not turn these pages fast enough!”—Janet Fitch, author of White Oleander and Paint It Black
 
“Mark Onspaugh’s writing captures that same eye-popping strangeness I loved so much in the works of Charles Beaumont and Fritz Leiber. The Faceless One is classic horror from an author who has earned his stripes and knows how to scare you blind.”—Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award–winning author of Dead City and The Savage Dead

“Spine-tingling . . . Onspaugh has swirled together the elements of great storytelling: odyssey, myth, duty, loss of innocence.”Ensuing Chapters
 
“The story line grabs you around the throat and keeps your eyes on the book. . . . Are you ready to go on a road trip with a demon? Get a copy and dig in.”Journey of a Bookseller

It isn't easy being a werewolf. Especially when you're a newbie at shapeshifting.

Lucky, there's a group called Shapeshifters Anonymous that will help you work through the difficult times, like eating your friends, and shedding.

When recently turned werewolf Robert Weston Smith discovers his new found abilities in a humorous (but alarming) way, he seeks out the support group to help him figure things out. There he meets various characters who transform into assorted, odd things, including a sexy werecheetah named Irena.

But little did Weston know he'd been followed to this private gathering, by someone who wants to do the therianthropes a great deal of harm...

Shapeshifters Anonymous is a 12,000 word novella, specifically formatted for Kindle. It contains a handful of werepeople, a dash of romance, some gratuitous humor, and revisionist Xmas theories. It also has previews of Konrath's other work. It was previously published in the collection Wolfsbane and Mistletoe.

DESCRIPTION:

"One of the most thrilling writers working today. Miss him at your peril." - Blake Crouch, Wayward Pines

An experimental rafting expedition, an FBI manhunt for a delusional killer, and the worst storm in decades collide in the remote mountain wilderness...and then THEY come out.

THE GORGE

Bowie Whitlock and a team of celebrity athletes are commissioned to test two experimental rafts in the rugged Unegama Gorge in the remote Appalachian Mountains, considered the most dangerous whitewater rapids in the eastern United States.

FBI agent Jim Castle and his partner are in the gorge looking for Ace Goodall, a deranged abortion clinic bomber. Ace, accompanied by a fragile young woman, is suffering visions that guide his murderous behavior. An accident during the manhunt releases a long-hidden species to the world.

The race is on as dark storm clouds gather, the river swells to a torrent, and Ace hijacks the rafting expedition to make his escape. But the bloodthirsty creatures swooping down from the high cliffs have been too long without prey.

Ace has one more bomb.

God is talking to him.

And he'll kill Bowie or anyone else who stands in his way. But killing isn't what it used to be, because the dead no longer stay dead.

(Originally published in mass market paperback as THEY HUNGER)

No one in Willow Street pays it any notice, not the disgruntled Campbell family next door, not Alice Cowley and her suicidal daughter, or Mr. and Mrs. Markham down the road.

Until it makes itself known.

When the stench of death wafts from Kemper House through Willow Street, and comes to the attention of recent resident and newspaper reporter, Ben Traynor, it starts a chain of horrors that brings Kemper House's curse into their own homes and leads others direct to its door. Kemper House not only haunts its neighbours, it infects them with an evil that traverses time and reality itself.
