DESCRIPTION:

Is there something looking back at me? Is there something there waiting for me?

At the edge of the woods behind his father's house, James Callum thinks he sees a monster. His father thinks he's interested in watching the deer, but James is more interested in what's watching him. For a twelve-year-old city boy, the intense openness of the Ohio countryside is like another world. The fields stretch forever, the summer heat is unrelenting, and the thick woods at the edge of the property hide untold secrets.

When no one believes he's seeing a monster, his entire world unravels, leaving the frayed strands of his identity entangled with the mystery of the monster in the woods. With the help of his friends Jack and Owen, James risks his life, family, and friendships to prove the monster is real and uncover the truth behind it.

In THE WOODS, Milo Abrams pierces the veil of curiosity with an almost unbearable build-up of suspense and emotion. Don't go outside. Don't look into the backyard. There's something in the woods.

★★★★★ "This was an incredible book! The characters are well-described, the action is consistent, and the imagery, specifically the personification, is wonderful! There were moments I could feel the forest around me, breathing down my neck. Remarkable!" [Lana Mowdy, a Professional Editor]

An Award-Winning Novel (2019 Readers' Favorite Gold Medal Winner in the Fiction - Horror genre)

A young man leaves his backdoor Russian town and heads to Moscow, never to be poor again. With each day, he grows more and more desperate until he meets an old geologist with an intriguing and surprisingly profitable offer: to join him on his trip to the depths of Siberia, the largest forest on the planet, and become a "black digger" - one of those who find and excavate mammoth tusks with the purpose of selling them as ivory to the highest bidder.
With nothing much to lose, our hero agrees, venturing to the edge of the Earth, beyond the borders of civilization and into the untouched wilderness. There, thousands of miles from home, in a race against the clock before the cold seals the ground, he has to face nature, other diggers, his inner demons and, most importantly, the enigmatic "Master of the Forest" - a prehistoric creature and the origin of all local legends, who ferociously protects his domain.

Before You Wake: Three Horrors Adam Nevill

FREE

Available Through September 11 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:

A trilogy of horror tales selected from the award-winning writer's second full collection – HASTY FOR THE DARK – featuring more of the nightmarish visions and ghastly creatures that have been disturbing readers for years. In this book you'll find three stories of occult and demoniac horror.

No blackmail is as ghastly as extortion from angels.
A swift reckoning often travels in handheld luggage.
No sign of life aboard an abandoned freighter, but what is left below deck tells a strange story.

Praise for Adam Nevill's debut collection, Some Will Not Sleep: Selected Horrors:

"Nothing is sacred, nothing is safe, and goodness me, if you like horror fiction you're going to absolutely love every damn minute." Pop Mythology

"Beautifully crafted, original and complete works." This is Horror

"An outstanding anthology of career spanning short stories." Gingernuts of Horror

Praise for Adam Nevill's horror novels:

"Adam Nevill is a spine-chiller in the classic tradition, a writer who draws you in from the world of the familiar, eases you into the world of terror, and then locks the door behind you." Michael Koryta, NYT Bestselling author

"He has the rare ability to craft a nebulous atmosphere of terror, as well as to capture cinematic slasherpunk in the written word. Both are incredibly rare talents." Pornokitsch

"The sense of dread is immediate, with the reader's sense of foreboding increasing with every new page." Irish Examiner

"Readers will lose all hope of peaceful, undisturbed sleep. Highly recommended." Library Journal - Starred Review

"Nevill's talent for horror resonates ominously in every scene, almost as if the theme from Jaws echoes when a page is turned." Kirkus

DESCRIPTION:

The true extent of human evil is revealed in this suspenseful thriller in which children are stolen--and sold online

Children disappear all the time--but where do they go?
 
While covering a missing-child case for a tabloid newspaper, washed-up reporter Bentley Noble accidentally stumbles upon a horrifying lead. What he thought was a single kidnapping leads him to discover a human trafficking ring, specializing in sexually obedient children. Noble slowly uncovers a society so depraved that it can only be classified as evil; its members are no ordinary pedophiles, but rather professionals. United by their Satanist beliefs, they're willing to use any means necessary to train their "merchandise"--and keep Noble from uncovering their business.
 
With the help of a hacker, a researcher, and a true-crime writer, Noble descends into the dark world of human trafficking. But in order to destroy it, he'll have to gamble not only his life, but also his sanity.
 
Shackled, author Ray Garton's most controversial work yet, is not for the faint of heart--or stomach.

DESCRIPTION:

Shadows walk in the autumn mist.

It's the Fall of 1994 in the small milltown of Belford, New York. The leaves are turning, the kids are going back to school, and the heat of Summer is giving way to a cool, misty season. It happens every Fall.

Only this Fall, people are disappearing into that mist. Some people are found torn apart, some people are found dead for no reason, and some people aren't found at all. Other people see strange things in the mist: ghosts and campfire stories.

There's something out there in that mist. Something old. Something that has slept for a long time, but has now woken up hungry. Maybe the people of Belford could resist it, but as the terrible Fall wears on, more and more of them start...changing. Acting bizarre and violent. In the end, only a small group of teenage defenders are left to make their stand.

A troubled man enters a dusky park before sunset. A young woman follows, hidden in shadow.

But something evil is alive and awake in those woods, creatures that care nothing for human motivations. They're driven by their own insatiable need: a ravenous, bottomless hunger.

The campgrounds are full tonight, and the creatures are starving. Before the night is over, they will feed.

An unrelenting tale of terror from Jason Parent, acclaimed author of People of the Sun and What Hides Within.

DESCRIPTION:

'From the author of 'The Old Man and The Princess' (Recently optioned to be a major motion picture) - comes a new dark, gripping and twisted tale of horrifying terror in the Scottish Highlands.'

MY SISTER AND I

(Strong language, Graphic violence, and some Scots Dialect - Not for the faint of heart)

A young teenage girl and her twin sister must grow up hard and fast in the unforgiving Scottish Highlands as their father - a sick and twisted man, obsessed with the end of the world - teaches them how to survive in the wild with no one to rely on but themselves.

- What readers are saying about this truly disturbing novel -

'Truly delicious horror'

'Jeezo, I love a bit of dark depravity fiction, but this was absolutely merciless.'

'I was drawn to this book in the first sentence and could not put it down until the last sentence. It is heartbreaking and evil and sad with a little hopeful all at the same time.'

'Make no mistake, the novel is carried by the heart of the characters, through the sick and the depraved, to the shining little core of hope that is sisterhood.'

'The narrative here is what gets me the most. Written in first person, from the perspective of the gentler twin, it's all thoughts and descriptions, with a lack of dialogue. This made the unfolding of the plot all the more terrifying'

'A road trip tale from hell.'

'Wow. This is dark and perhaps the darkest book so far from Sean-Paul Thomas. I love the way that whatever genre he writes he evokes the atmospheric feel of where it is set. I could feel the isolation and have to say I was impressed with this book.'

'There's a particularly fast pace here, which was excellent. The girls are no sooner released from some form of ‘survival training' nightmare before being plunged into their next woeful task. The appearances of the clearly mentally ill father are sporadic, frightful, and completely concerning. His beliefs, his upbringing, and his treatment of his daughters, all point towards something we hope we'll never encounter in our own lifetimes.'

DESCRIPTION:

As featured in The New York Times Book Review Summer Reading Issue

"Supernatural suspense at its finest...The best thing about The Hunger is that it will scare the pants off you."--The New York Times Book Review

"Deeply, deeply disturbing, hard to put down, not recommended reading after dark."--Stephen King

A tense and gripping reimagining of one of America's most fascinating historical moments: the Donner Party with a supernatural twist.


Evil is invisible, and it is everywhere.

That is the only way to explain the series of misfortunes that have plagued the wagon train known as the Donner Party. Depleted rations, bitter quarrels, and the mysterious death of a little boy have driven the isolated travelers to the brink of madness. Though they dream of what awaits them in the West, long-buried secrets begin to emerge, and dissent among them escalates to the point of murder and chaos. They cannot seem to escape tragedy...or the feelings that someone--or something--is stalking them. Whether it's a curse from the beautiful Tamsen Donner (who some think might be a witch), their ill-advised choice of route through uncharted terrain, or just plain bad luck, the ninety men, women, and children of the Donner Party are heading into one of one of the deadliest and most disastrous Western adventures in American history.

As members of the group begin to disappear, the survivors start to wonder if there really is something disturbing, and hungry, waiting for them in the mountains...and whether the evil that has unfolded around them may have in fact been growing within them all along.

Effortlessly combining the supernatural and the historical, The Hunger is an eerie, thrilling look at the volatility of human nature, pushed to its breaking point.

DESCRIPTION:

Civilization is in decay.

And something is stirring to take its place. 

Walking the abandoned halls of the Tavistock Galleria, it's almost impossible to recognize that it was once the most luxurious retail center for hundreds of miles. Marble floors have been cracked and smeared, and long-dry fountains stand as though monuments for the dead.

Yet there's still life inside these broken walls. Locals tell of the rituals that happen at night, or speak of what's hidden inside the gear box of the old carousel. Of the creature that lurks in the store room behind Hot Topic, and how the canned echo of music still plays though the power has long since been cut.

The doors were once locked at night to keep people out, but now they're locked to keep something in.
