DESCRIPTION:

Jake stands there, stunned, as Andrew chambers a round. The rifle is pointed right at the running man. Every hunter has a story of an expedition gone wrong. This one is about to take a fatal turn, and there is nothing that Jake can do but watch.

The rifle goes off

From horror author Ike Hamill, Spores takes you on a journey you’ll never forget. It’s a tale millions of years in the making, and you’ll never imagine where it will land.

The four men are out on a simple hunting trip. It’s supposed to be a chance to unwind and get away from all the stress of work and family. But when Andrew looks through the scope and sees what’s running at him, he acts decisively. Back at the cabin, Leonard and Patrice have their own problem. They hear the sound of the snowmobile and rush to the window. They look out in time to see the machine streaking across the lake, and then it’s gone.

When Marie appears, everything somehow gets much worse.

DESCRIPTION:

This Bram Stoker Award–winning collection is “certain to stick in your mind long after you’ve turned the last page” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch).

Includes “Big Momma,” a finalist for the International Thriller Writers Award for Best Short Story

Here are six of Joyce Carol Oates’s most “frightening–and deeply disturbing–short stories” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette). In the titular story, a boy becomes obsessed with his cousin’s doll after her tragic death. As he grows older, he begins to collect “found dolls” from surrounding neighborhoods . . . each with its own sinister significance.

In “Gun Accident,” a teenage girl is delighted to house-sit for her favorite teacher, until an intruder forces his way inside–changing more than one life forever. The collection closes with the taut tale of a mystery bookstore owner whose designs on a rare bookshop in scenic New Hampshire devolve into a menacing game with real-life consequences. “At the heart of each story is a predator-prey relationship, and what makes them so terrifying is that most of us can easily picture ourselves as the prey, at least at some time during our lives” (Minneapolis Star-Tribune).

“Everything she writes, in whatever genre, has an air of dread, because she deals in vulnerabilities and inevitabilities, in the desperate needs that drive people . . . to their fates. A sense of helplessness is the essence of horror, and Oates conveys that feeling as well as any writer around.” –Terrence Rafferty, The New York Times Book Review

“One of the stranger parts of the human condition may be our deep fascination, and at times troubling exploration, of the darker aspects of our nature . . . No other author explores the ugly, and at times, blazingly unapologetic underbelly of these impulses quite like Joyce Carol Oates in The Doll-Master.” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“In her new collection . . . [Oates] relishes moments of gothic melodrama, while rooting them firmly in grindingly ordinary American lives.” —The Guardian

“Oates convincingly demonstrates her mastery of the macabre with this superlative story collection . . . This devil’s half-dozen of dread and suspense is a must read.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

DESCRIPTION:

All of it was now charred, bathed in ash and destruction.  All of it was gone… burned. 

Jordan’s world came crashing down the day she learned about the gruesome unsolved murders of her father and uncle. Still reeling from the recent loss mother to suicide and now her father’s grisly homicide, Jordan returns to her old hometown in upstate New York to see her family one last time.  When she starts her own investigation into her father’s past, she quickly discovers a seedy past that has been hidden from her since she was a little girl.

Small towns hold a lot of secrets and the town Jordan left so long ago is no exception. The more she digs to find answers, the more those answers stalk her from the shadows…

Into the Dark is a suspenseful and deliciously dark psychological thriller and crime drama that features a complex main character who is looking for answers to her troubled past, while bringing light to past deeds that might be best left in the shadows. But the more Jordan sees, the deeper into the darkness she goes…and sometimes, it bites back.
