DESCRIPTION:

When the notorious Hardstone Jail is reopened after many years of neglect, nobody cares about the ghost stories. They just want somewhere to put more prisoners.

But a ghost has been waiting patiently at Hardstone. The ghost of a little girl walks the corridors, seeking revenge for something that happened a century ago. And anyone who looks into her eyes will be dead within days.

Sent to Hardstone for a horrific crime she doesn’t remember committing, Amanda Weir just wants to be ignored and forgotten. Soon, however, she discovers that the ghost isn’t the only horror lurking within the prison’s walls. Horrific experiments are being conducted on prisoners, and Amanda is quickly put to work assisting the barbaric Dr. Bell. How are these experiments tied to the ghostly girl, and what evil force is threatening to throw the entire jail into chaos?

DESCRIPTION:

An evil force pulses deep within Malpas Abbey, overflowing with maniacal glee…

Overlooking a dark hill, the gloomy Malpas Abbey has been avoided by locals for centuries. Its infamous history is marred with blood and terror. Only the foolish would dare enter such a place, where devilish hauntings have left a string of dead bodies in its wake.

Just as the building is about to be permanently closed, things take an unexpected turn. An American television crew shows up, hoping to investigate the source of the structure’s paranormal activity. Led by producer Matt McKay and paranormal expert Ted Gould, the hapless bunch enter the confines of the hellish residence only to discover that they are in way over their heads.

As the group tries to make sense of the strange occurrences, they soon realize that the cellar might be the key to unlocking the mystery. Inside lies a stone altar that emanates with the evil strength of the Devil himself, feeding upon the crew members’ worst nightmares.

With the ominous cloud hanging over them, they realize that there’s much more at stake than a disruption in filming. The only hope for survival rests on Ted, Matt and his crew’s ability to find their way out of the darkness, before the house devours them, capturing all the gory details on camera…

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:

These selected terrors range from the speculative to supernatural horror, encompass the infernal and the occult, and include stories inspired by H. P. Lovecraft, Robert Aickman and Ramsey Campbell.
Hasty for the Dark is the second short story collection from the award-winning and widely appreciated British writer of horror fiction, Adam L. G. Nevill. The author’s best horror stories from 2009 to 2015 are collected here for the first time.

The hardest journeys in life and death are taken underground.
No blackmail is as ghastly as extortion from angels.
A swift reckoning often travels in handheld luggage.
Once considered inhumane and now derelict, this zoo may not be as empty as assumed.
A bad marriage, a killer couple, and part of a wider movement.
No sign of life aboard an abandoned freighter, but what is left below deck tells a strange story.
The origin of our species is not what we think.
In destitution, the future for revolution and mass murder is so bright.
Your memories may not be your own, and your life nothing more than a ritual that will compel you to perform an atrocity . . .

Praise for the author’s first collection of horror stories, Some Will Not Sleep: Selected Horrors:

“Great storytelling, but across a wider palate and range of styles than you might have expected, leading to some delightfully unexpected visions and hellscapes.” Gingernuts of Horror

“There is not one single tale which feels less than the others, none which seem to be mere ‘filler’. They are beautifully crafted, original and complete works which nevertheless fit well together as arranged by the author.” This is Horror

“In ‘Some Will Not Sleep’ 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

“Eleven wonderfully macabre tales that cover the whole gamut of the horrific. The supernatural rubs shoulders with the bizarre, body horror and psychological trauma walk hand in hand.” The Eloquent Page

“Verdict: A collection full of creeping dread, well worth a read. 9/10.” SciFi Bulletin

“Some Will Not Sleep contains 11 short stories, 11 stories that takes you different times and places. 11 stories that will give you your fix of the macabre. 5 Stars” Terror Tree

“It isn’t often that I read a short story collection and enjoy every entry, but with this book I did.” The Grim Reader

“There are eleven stories in the book, eight of which are written in first person narrative, and each and every one is a cracker – here you’ll find monsters (including those of the human variety), ghosts, arcane rituals and some of the most disturbing imagery.” Anthony Watson

“An excellent collection, recommended for anyone interested in the current surge in weird fiction or short stories in general.” Unsung Stories

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

They bought her body, not her silence.

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:

Ten years ago, a deadly cult sought to gain favor with an ancient demon named Attaroth. They failed miserably, and eventually they all died during an armed raid. All except a ten-year-old girl named Clay.

At least, that's what she always thought.

Now Clay's on the run, terrified to stay in one place for too long. Pursued by the same demon that spurned the cult members, Clay knows that – for some reason – Attaroth sees her as his route into the mortal world. And as dark forces close in all around her, Clay starts to realize that her days of running might soon be over.

Attaroth is back, and this time he wants the human body he was promised.

Better the Devil (originally released as The Girl Clay but reissued now in this updated edition) is a horror story about a frightened little girl who was once dragged into a nightmare, and about her attempts several years later to ensure that a terrifying prophecy never comes to pass.
