DESCRIPTION:

"Told with icy precision of eye and ear and a wink of wicked humor . . . First-rate haunted-house creepiness" from the bestselling author of Summer of '42 (Kirkus Reviews).

Austin Fletcher, a disturbed young Vietnam War vet, is willed a small house deep in the woods of northern Maine. He comes to own it by the generosity of a brother-in-arms--a fellow soldier and confidante, Maynard Whittier, killed in action by a wayward mortar shell. The rugged landscape of Maine is an intoxicating blend of claustrophobic interiors and endless frozen wastelands. Little by little, the mysterious force in the house asserts itself until Austin isn't exactly sure what is in his mind and what is real. And just when our hero's had enough and is ready to quit the place, a blizzard arrives and the real haunting begins.

"An unsettling experience . . . Confounding, touching and well-written." --The New York Times Book Review

DESCRIPTION:

YOU CAN CATCH A GOOD HUMAN WITH A BAD HAMBURGER

Proverbs For Monsters is an omnibus of the best writing to date by one the most offbeat and humorous writers working in the horror genre today, Michael A. Arnzen. Hand picked by the author, these are the stories "flash fictions," and poems most cherished by readers, most enjoyed at live performances, most celebrated by editor of year's best collections, and most recommended for literary awards from across his career.

AN INFANT VAMPIRE BITES HARDEST

In Proverbs For Monsters you'll get advice for growing your own maneating plant. You'll ride the movies at Exorcystland - the scariest amusement park ever created. You'll attend a bizarre grade school for assassins. You'll meet a dentist with a very disturbing collection of baby teeth. You'll encounter strange children - from the boy who carries his heart in a metal case attached to his chest to the girl who is completely encased in the carapace of her own giant scab. You'll ride a deseased elephant and witness the death of the last vampire and learn more than you ever wanted to know about a perpetual embalming machine. You'll wince and laugh and wince again.

FORTUNE FAVORS THE CLEAVER

Whether you're never read Michael Arnzen before or are already a fan of his gleefully twisted imagination, you're in for a very dark treat with this generous collection of thirty stories and thirty poems, many of them impossible-to-find or never seen before. Proverbs for Monsters offers the most delightful and disturbing retrospective of this acclaimed author's career. Winner of Three Bram Stoker Awards and the International Horror Guild Award

"[Arnzen's] ingenuity of plot and startling resolutions rival the work of any horror author publishing short fiction...As time passes it will become increasingly obvious that Michael A. Arnzen is a strong and important voice in horror fiction." - Cemetery Dance

"...one of the most inventive and outrageous talents in the horror genre." -- Karl Edward Wagner, fmr. editor of The Year's Best Horror Stories

"Mike Arnzen is the finest zombie poet who ever lived, then died and came back." -- John Skipp, author of The Long Last Call

I AM NOT ONE OF YOU.

At least that's what you'll tell yourself.

You'll say I'm a monster. A sicko. A deranged killer.

But I am no monster, I am no sicko, and I am not deranged.

I am simply a man who happens to enjoy murdering people in the most violent of ways.

So don't bother reading this if you have a weak stomach, get easily offended, or are simply not interested in the best way to dispose of a dead body.

(It's pigs, by the way. They eat ANYTHING.)

My name is Gerald Brittle. I am a serial killer. And this is my memoir.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • If you think you know the truth behind Eleven's mother, prepare to have your mind turned Upside Down in the first official Stranger Things novel--"the prequel story that fans have been waiting for" (Kirkus Reviews).

It's the summer of 1969, and the shock of conflict reverberates through the youth of America. As a student at a quiet college campus in the heartland of Indiana, Terry Ives couldn't be farther from the front lines of Vietnam or the protests in Washington.

But the world is changing, and Terry isn't content to watch. When word gets around about an important government experiment in the small town of Hawkins, she signs on as a test subject for the project, code-named MKULTRA. The remote lab, deep in the woods, contains a mystery Terry is determined to uncover.

Behind the walls of Hawkins National Laboratory--and the piercing gaze of its director, Dr. Martin Brenner--lurks a conspiracy greater than Terry could have ever imagined. To face it, she'll need the help of her fellow test subjects, including a young girl with unexplainable superhuman powers and a number instead of a name: 008.

Amid the rising tensions of the new decade, Terry Ives and Martin Brenner have begun a different kind of war--one where the human mind is the battlefield.

DESCRIPTION:

Black Scottish terriers aren't particularly well-known for devouring civilisations, but Little Dog is.

Like most omnipotent beings, Little Dog finds boredom a constant problem, but the deity has just the right plaything to solve this, a psychopathic vagabond called Cain.

Cain never wanted to make a deal with the sadistic and petulant deity. All the psychopathic and eccentric vagabond ever wanted was to gorge on Manchester's finest foods, fight the police and save the bumblebee through murderous rampages. Instead, he has to give bloodthirsty performance after bloodthirsty performance to keep the omnipotent being entertained. If he fails, he might just find that he -- and the rest of the world -- become the god's snacks.

* If you like your violence gory, your heroes twisted, your sex messed up, and your comedy as black as your ex's heart, then this is the book for you! *

What reviewers are saying:

"Dark satire and black comedy abound in this book. A psychological thriller that skewers let's see religion, murder, serial killlers, gods, the devil, resurrection and everything inbetween. This is unlike any book you ever read so if you want different this is your book. If you are easily offended then it's not for you." - Amazon reviewer - Papa Place

"If you love a brilliantly written tale unlike anything you have ever read, you have GOT to read this book! Mr. Park has the most insanely uniquely awesome imagination that I have ever read!." -Goodread Reviewer - Stephanie Hunt

"Thoroughly enjoyed this odd, paranormal, science fiction dark comedy. If you get the references it was like reading a mix of Kurt Vonnegut, the movie He Never Died and the Galactus comic character where the world eater is a cute; black Scottish Terrier. Can't wait for the next installment." – Amazon Reviewer – Karen Colingwood

"I found a lot of humor in this book. Some people may not enjoy the humor but I highly recommend it! " - Amazon reviewer - Linda Curtis

DESCRIPTION:

A novel of terror from the Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of PRESSURE.

A serial kidnapper is preying upon women. He abducts them, then locks them in one of the cages dangling from the ceiling in a soundproofed basement. There, he sits quietly and just watches them, returning night after night, hoping he'll be in the room at the moment his beautiful captives finally starve to death.

Charlene and Gertie have become fast friends at the restaurant where they work. But Charlene is concerned when she hears how her co-worker spends her evenings: Gertie's cousin is one of the missing, and Gertie wanders the city streets where many of the abductions took place, using herself as bait with a high-voltage stun gun in her pocket. Charlene reluctantly offers to trail her in a car, just in case she does lure the kidnapper and things go wrong.

Unfortunately, the women find themselves the source of unwanted fame. And now they're on the radar of a very, very dangerous man...

"MY PRETTIES is full of twists and turns, and just when I thought I knew where Strand was going with the story, he turned it on its head and shocked the shit out of me. And being Jeff Strand, he made me laugh as much as he was making me cringe." -- Horror Drive-In

"One of Strand's darkest and most disturbing novels."
"One of the most original and suspenseful horror releases of 2019."
"One of Jeff Strand's best if not his best book to date."
"The story twist had me floored."

Eunice Pembry ran the town like a loving matriarch … and like any mother, she sometimes had to discipline her children.

Colonel Davis loved only one thing more than the town of Willow Tree … and she made him do detestable things to prove that love.

It is a secret worth dying for … but will dying be enough?
