DESCRIPTION:

The first in a series by mystery thriller author Reed Blitzerman. Revolt of the Rats features two heroes, separated in time by fifty years. Bosnian War veteran Kahle Desireau is young and wild, with an ability to see auras and the black smoke exhaled by the sentient dead. Eli Steiner has just returned from WWI. His ability to see the future has a blind spot called the Great Depression.

After leaving Bosnia, Kahle follows a woman to a dying factory in Frampton, Ohio. For her love, he'll compete with Motomax's handsome CEO and join a desperate fight for the factory's survival. But his love interest is more than he bargained for, and the darkness that he'd hoped to escape has followed him.

Eli Steiner is no stranger to challenge. But in the shadow of the Great Depression, the banks aren't lending. The ground has dried hard and turned to dust. Without a crop loan, he and his small family will lose their farm. When a yellow roadster comes to town, they may lose more than that.

This is book one of five in a complete series.

Interview with the Author

Q: Why should anyone read this? A: It's a great story that's marinated in my head for over twenty years. I've attempted to let the characters develop in a way that's interesting while still moving the plot along. The story takes place primarily in a factory and a farm, but it's really about families: the ones you were born into and the ones you create and how we fight to preserve them.
Q: Why write a book as novellas? A: Fear. Fifty pages in, I doubted I would ever finish. Maybe if enough readers asked for the next book, I'd be forced to finish it. Or if it wasn't any good, I wouldn't have invested too much time to find out. I'd seen others do it and thought it was perfect. Readers love quality. The novella format reinforced that. Paraphrasing Joe Hill, every sentence had to fight for existence. So I edited over and over. My mother is really my first reader. There's not a lot she misses. She said that several passages were boring, so I spent seven months doing a rewrite. It produced a much better product.
Q: What have you done that you hope readers will enjoy? A: Early readers placed a premium on the language. The journey of reading was more pleasurable than the destination. I've read most of Stephen King's occult supernatural novels. As a kid, I read all the books by Dean Koontz. The same with "NOS4A2" by Joe Hill. I've been told the next thing to read is Preston & Child. What hooked me as a reader was how they created the effect right under my nose. Maybe I could do the same for someone else.
Q: Where did you get the idea for the series? A: When I got out of the Army, it seemed like we were everywhere, this diaspora of ex-military members, an invisible society within society. What if it really was a secret society? And then, what if those same people were summarily discarded? The historical parallel would be the ronin, masterless samurai during the Japanese feudal period, who lost their lord but retained the bushido code of honor. The Tom Cruise movie, "The Last Samurai." had already done the heavy lifting of explaining the idea for me. Why not give it a try?

DESCRIPTION:

Decades ago, a young rock and blues guitarist and junkie named Niko signed in blood on the dotted line and in return became the stuff of music legend. But when the love of his damned life grows mortally and mysteriously ill, he realizes he has lost more than he bargained for—and that was not part of the deal. So Niko sets out on a harrowing journey from the streets of Los Angeles through the downtown subway tunnels and across the red-lit plain of the most vividly realized hell since Dante to play the gig of his mortgaged life and win back the purloined soul of his lost love.

Mortality Bridge remixes Orpheus, Dante, Faust, the Crossroads legend, and more in a beautiful, brutal, and surprisingly funny quest across a Hieronymus Bosch landscape of myth, music, and mayhem, and across an inner terrain of addiction, damnation, and redemption.

DESCRIPTION:

Murder sparks witchcraft hysteria in this "thoughtful" and "entertaining" seventeenth-century historical mystery from a New York Times–bestselling author (Stephen King).

It's 1699 in the coastal settlement of Fount Royal in the Carolinas when Rachel Howarth is sentenced to be hanged as a witch. She's been accused of murder, deviltry, and blasphemous sexual congress, and the beleaguered, God-fearing colonial village wants her dead. But Matthew Corbett, young clerk to the traveling magistrate summoned to Fount Royal to weigh the accusations, soon finds himself persuaded in favor of the beguiling young widow.

Struck first by her beauty, Matthew believes Rachel to be too dignified, courageous, and intelligent for such obscene charges. The testimony against her is fanatical and unreliable. Clues to the crimes seem too convenient and contrived. A number of her accusers appear to gain by her execution. And, if Rachel is a witch, why hasn't she used her powers to fly away from the gaol on the wings of a nightbird?

God and Satan are indeed at war. Something really is happening in the newly established settlement--of that Corbett is certain. As his investigation draws him into the darkness of a town gone mad, and deeper into its many secrets, Corbett realizes that time is running out for him, for Rachel, and for the hope that good could possibly win out over evil in Fount Royal.

From the award-winning author of Boy's Life and Gone South, Speaks the Nightbird is an "absorbing historical mystery" (Publishers Weekly).

DESCRIPTION:

"The boundary line between instinct and reason is of a very shadowy nature"
-Edgar Allan Poe (1840)

With its twenty-one stories of serial killers and sociopaths, fixations and fetishes, breakdowns and bad decisions crafted by authors as diverse as their writing styles, Shadowy Natures leads fans of psychological horror down dark and treacherous roads to destinations they will be too unsettled to leave.
Under the tutelage of a charismatic caretaker, a young boy learns that the rules don't apply to "exceptional" people; under the blinders of parental love, a parent considers the after-effects of his daughter's criminal exoneration. One suburban dad finds himself inexplicably drawn to something he spies while walking the family pet, and another discovers buried compulsions awakened by his daughter's dental deformity. Sorting through a deceased relative's belongings, a family stumbles upon a horrific treasure, as a drifter with a dark secret wanders the Old West. While a military officer spends his days delivering despair, a procrastinator is consumed by guilt after making a deadly mistake, and a businessman stumbles upon a bizarre family photo gallery. Postpartum paranoia and isolation threaten one mother's sanity until an outside threat pushes her over the edge while another mother picks at her son's psychological scabs until he scrambles for release. Urban blight bears down on a convenience store owner; a middle-aged man takes a terminally ill acquaintance captive to avenge his lover's death; a depressed suburban housewife makes a strange new friend, and a neglected teen finds solace and inspiration in a vicious classmate's company. When her brother moves back into the family home, a woman becomes consumed by what he leaves behind; when a man disappears, his sister considers the warning signs he may have been leaving since childhood. One couple abandons urban life for the isolating wilderness while another plays a dangerous game, hoping to rekindle their relationship. While one son revisits the scene of his father's horrific crime spree, another returns home to ponder his family's well-hidden secret.
From unique twists on traditional terror tropes to fresh frights found in the most innocuous of places, these tales will surprise and unnerve even the most veteran horror fans. Featuring brand new fiction from Jeremy Billingsley, C.W. Blackwell, Barrie Darke, Matthew R. Davis, Christina Delia, KC Grifant, Liam Hogan, K.N. Johnson, Thomas Kearnes, Rudy Kremberg, Scotty Milder, Bryan Miller, Hollee Nelson, Elin Olausson, James Edward O'Brien, Andrew Punzo, Lee Rozelle, Joseph Rubas, Paul Stansfield, Louis Stephenson, and Thomas Vaughn.
