DESCRIPTION:

"Be dangerous, darling, for the whole world rises and falls at your feet."

It's halloween night. Timothy Sun stands in a garden of graves beneath the branches of the Tim Burton tree, his eyes deadlocked with the gorgeous creature in the raven costume. She beckons to him with one hand, while holding an axe in the other. One month ago, he was a lonely shop owner hiding from a dark past. Then he met her. He met his violent violet and Timothy knew he'd never be alone again… if only murder wasn't the only way to keep Velva Jones's affection. Either Timothy plays her game of secrets and murder or damns himself to an early grave. The game has begun, but how will it end? This book is for the dark at heart who dare to believe in love.

From the author of Deadly Women (3 Tales to Chill Your Bones) comes a horror novel with dark psychological suspense, a touch of magic, comedy, and romance. If you're a fan of King, Koontz, or Tarantino then this book is for you.

DESCRIPTION:

In hidden places, they sleep and dream, and through their dreams they touch humanity--but their touch brings only the stains of horror, death, and madness...until the day the Old Ones return.

In The Engines of Sacrifice, acclaimed writer James Chambers delivers four nightmare novellas inspired by the Mythos of H. P. Lovecraft.

Investigation 37: In the late years of the Vietnam War, Lavender May runs away from home to search for freedom and peace in New York City, but instead, she finds only a world of magic, witchcraft, and lies.

The Ugly Birds: Only one thing could save Carmine Darabont's comics magazine from going under: publishing the next chapter of the hit series "The Otherworlders." But what dark secret drives its creator--Carmine's ex-fiancé--to refuse to deliver it?

The Hidden Room: At the height of the Cold War, Doctor Calvin Lenox is a member of the Nuclear Emergency Search Team. With his life spiraling into despair, he confronts the mystery of a runaway Soviet defector and the death of three men, only to find himself at the mercy of...the Faceless God.

The Engines of Sacrifice: What is the power of words? Can they control the fabric of reality? In a horrifying new world, underground author Rowley Cray struggles against a totalitarian government gone insane and the possibility that he can control the souls of the dead.

Publishers Weekly Starred Review:
Chambers (Resurrection House) draws readers deep into H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos with chillingly evocative writing and the clever integration of real-world events. Four interlocking stories take place at least in part in the Long Island town of Knicksport, where portals open into the uncanny dimensions inhabited by the elder gods. Could the emergence into our world of Azathoth, Shub-Niggurath, and Nyarlathotep be tied to the Wiccan enthusiasm of the 1970s, the strong presence of horror themes in 1980s indie comics, or the "accident" at Chernobyl? Can Cthulhu be reached through the transformative powers of fiction? Chambers's damaged characters cling to hope even as the world comes apart at the seams, making the insanity and despair of their circumstances poignant as well as deliciously creepy.

ONE GEEK AGAINST THE RISING DARKNESS.

Bill Ryder is having a hell of a week. Magic is back, one of his friends has been entombed in solid rock, and he once again has no pulse to speak of.

Too bad it's about to get worse. Something is hunting vampires in New York City. A smarmy wizard has been called in to investigate, one with skeletons in his closet and eyes for Bill's girlfriend. All the while, Neolithic horrors not seen since the dawn of time are reappearing, wreaking havoc wherever they step.

Bill will need to rally his friends, both new and old, if he's to have any chance of turning the creeping tide of chaos threatening to drown his city. But it won't be easy. The balance of power in the supernatural hierarchy has been upended, and all the attitude in the world might not be enough to fix it.

A grieving Robert Watts has little down time. Though he now has a house to live in, and friends new and old to join him, his financial woes have not been resolved.

And he has yet to come to terms with the things that he has seen... and experienced.

That is until Rob, Shelly, and Cal receive a visit from the mysterious Sean Sommers who offers them another job. Only this time, it's not a haunted estate that they are commissioned to purge, but an abandoned hospital ward... The Seventh Ward, a place that has been locked for decades, trapping more than just a horrible history within.

This time, Robert finds himself narrowly tight-rope walking between life and death, the living and the dead. The problem is, Robert isn't sure which side he falls on anymore...

No man could have made such prints, even if a man were walking barefoot in the dead of night across an inhospitable mountain slope.

When Ellen MacDonald arrives for a surprise visit to her uncle's remote lodge on the lower slopes of the snow-swept Cairngorms, Doctor MacDonald is on a most unusual case.

At the time-hallowed monastery of St Bechan, a brother has fallen dangerously ill with a mysterious sickness. The doctor's diagnosis suggests a baffling fever, but to the monks of St Bechan, steeped in the dark myths of the Black Peak, it is a case of possession.

Sudden, savage deaths follow – animals, and then men. In the shadow of the jagged peaks towering against the grey skies of Scotland an immemorial legend has come to light – a legend reaching across hundreds of years and thousands of miles. In the chill mountains a low, fretful wail rises and falls with the driving wind – the cry of the SNOWBEAST!

When she takes a room at the rundown Castle Crown B&B, all Bobbie wants is to get some sleep and make a tough decision about her future. Unfortunately, the B&B's other guests won't give her any peace, and Bobbie soon realizes that she's stumbled into a world with its own rules. Who is the mysterious bandaged woman? Why is there a dead man in the bathtub? And is something deadly lurking in the basement?

Before she can leave, however, Bobbie learns that the city of Canterbury is being terrorized by a mysterious figure. Every time snow comes, the Snowman claims another victim, leaving their blood sinking into the ice. If Bobbie leaves the B&B and ventures out into the empty streets, she risks becoming his next target. But if she stays, her soul might be claimed by an evil force that will do far more than simply end her life...

B&B is a horror story about a girl with a secret, and a building with a past.

DESCRIPTION:

From the bestselling author of the Bad Games and Wildlife series comes a chilling new novel of supernatural horror and suspense.

Highland Elementary has a dark and disturbing past--so disturbing that locals ultimately burned the school to the ground.

Years later, Pinewood Elementary is the future, and for new teacher Ryan Herb, a chance at a fresh start. But the townspeople don't believe that rebuilding the school and changing its name is enough. They believe that whatever evil inhabited the halls of Highland still dwells in Pinewood.

Ryan is a realist and isn't the type to be affected by local lore. But when Ryan begins to experience horrifying visions of past tragedies, he starts to question his own beliefs. Something in the school is reaching out to Ryan for help, a potentially lethal request as something else--or someone else?--in the school is keen on keeping the evil therein very much alive.

Can a skeptical Ryan unearth the origins of the evil's true source and put an end to it? Or will he, like many before him, become a permanent resident of the school himself?

Rife with supernatural terror and intrigue, Dark Halls blurs the lines between horror and mystery--a whodunit that, when solved, proposes the even greater question of: how do you stop it?

DESCRIPTION:

A frightfully funny novel for horror and fantasy fans.

Lloyd Wallace is the most clueless crossing guard the intersection of hell and earth has ever seen. So clueless, that he doesn't even realize the beer cave in the corner store where he works is the gateway to hell.

The gate needs a hero, but Lloyd's a zero, a loser with a capital L. He's ten thousand dollars in debt and lives with his parents. He's been fired from every job he's ever had. He was the first thing his ex-girlfriend tossed to the curb when she upgraded her life.

He had no money and no prospects until the night he accidentally slayed a one-eyed tentacle monster hellbent on world domination. And, impressed by his pure heart and bravery, the suave but devilish owner of the 24/7 Dairy Mart gave Lloyd a job.

His coworkers--a karate-chopping bombshell and a talking roach with a really bad attitude--need Lloyd's help to keep the demons in line. Can he man up and become a world-saving hero? Or, will he remain a couch-surfing zero? The fate of the world is on the line. What could go wrong?

24/7 Demon Mart is a new horror-comedy / humorous fantasy series for fans of A. Lee Martinez (Gil's All-fright Diner), David Wong (John Dies at the End), Terry Pratchett (Reaper Man), Christopher Moore (Practical Demonkeeping), Mark Cain (Circles in Hell series), and Heide Goody (Clovenhoof).

If you love Exorcist-level demon vomit, brooding Lovecraftian hell monsters, and plenty of laughs, this novel is for you. The Graveyard Shift is the first book in the 24/7 Demon Mart horror-comedy and dark satire fantasy series.

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.

DESCRIPTION:

A detective discovers bodies without brains--and wonders if he's losing his mind--in this tale of nightmarish terror.

What do you tell yourself when impossible things begin to happen? What can you say? You're a police detective, but maybe you're just not good enough and that's what you have to admit, whether you like it or not. You see evidence of things that can't be real, but you just don't observe well enough to explain it in any natural way. Can you ask rational questions and still be crazy? Does it help any that you know your mind is gone? You're trapped in a black comedy with a beautiful but fatal woman right out of an old poem by Keats, hoping to wake up from the nightmare, even if on a cold hillside--as long as you wake up sane.

Detective William Benek is faced with an impossible crime: bodies are turning up without their brains and without any indication of how the organs were removed. His only lead--an attractive woman--becomes more than a lead, and then drives him into a world of terror, where his sanity is questioned and he must stop a monster he can barely comprehend.
