Follow Damon Dahmer, the executive producer, as he creates such a bizarre television show.

Throw in his own revenge vendetta, and Damon's personal pain show viewings, and you get the first book in the series of 'Deadly Reality TV'.

DESCRIPTION:

"Marvelously creepy reading…the horror in this tale of twisted friendship is relentless." --Publishers Weekly

Alex stared at the red pocketknife shown to him by his daughter. A pocketknife owned by somebody he hadn't seen in years…

CHILDREN

They met first in boarding school at age twelve. Alex Fletcher, shy and scared. Darren Rust, always furiously scribbling away in a private journal. It was not an immediate friendship, but then one night Darren convinced his roommate to sneak off school grounds to see something glorious. There was a sleazy strip club, you see, and every once in a while the back door opened just long enough to maybe catch a quick glimpse…

Though a bond was formed from their pre-pubescent interest in naked women, Darren had another interest. A morbid curiosity about death. A curiosity that turned into something much more sinister.

FRIENDS

They crossed paths again in college and became the best of friends. But Darren wasn't just looking for a friend. He had dark, ghastly urges squirming around in his head, and he believed he saw the same things--the urge to hurt, the urge to kill--in Alex. He was looking for somebody who understood. A partner.

But Alex could never become a monster. Not even when Darren tried to bring out his friend's most deeply buried feelings of rage. Not even when Darren tried to show him the euphoria of having that much power over another human being. It just couldn't happen…right?

ENEMIES

Now Alex has a wife and a daughter. And Darren is back. He's hiding. He's patient. His mind is twisted in the worst possible way.

And he's seeking a soulmate.

DESCRIPTION:

"One of the great . . . American short-story writers" exposes the darkness of the human heart in these speculative tales of terror and tragedy (George R. R. Martin).

A five-year-old boy never ages, living as an immortal in a past that no longer exists while the world encroaches upon his innocence, in the Hugo and Nebula Award–winning "Jeffty Is Five."

An alien attack leaves Earth on the brink of Armageddon, as humans find themselves unable to resist the sexual allure of their invaders in "How's the Night Life on Cissalda?"

In the Nebula Award–nominated "Shatterday" (subsequently adapted into the pilot episode of the second Twilight Zone series), a man fights for his life against a relentless enemy who knows his darkest secrets--his own doppelganger.

In these and other thought-provoking stories, legendary author Harlan Ellison dissects the primal fears and inherent frailties common to all people and gives voice to the thoughts and feelings human beings bury deep within their souls. Unflinching and unapologetic, Ellison depicts men and women in all their ugliness and beauty, and humanity in all its fury and glory.

Stories include "Introduction: Mortal Dreads," "Jeffty Is Five," "How's the Night Life on Cissalda?," "Flop Sweat," "Would You Do it For a Penny?" (written in collaboration with Haskell Barkin), "The Man Who Was Heavily Into Revenge," "Shoppe Keeper," "All the Lies That Are My Life," "Django," "Count the Clock That Tells the Time," "In the Fourth Year of the War," "Alive and Well on a Friendless Voyage," "All the Birds Come Home to Roost," "Opium," "The Other Eye of Polyphemus," "The Executioner of the Malformed Children," and "Shatterday."

"Hellraiser meets 50 Shades" ~ 2012 BRAM STOKER AWARD FINALIST!

She yearned to go beyond... but some curtains should never be opened.
When Rae broached the idea of visiting an underground sex club, Mark didn't blink. He should have. Because NightWhere is not your usual swingers club. Where it's held on a given night...only those who receive the red invitations know. And the mysterious Watchers who guard the club answer to something far more sinister than the calls of the flesh. Soon Rae is indulging in her lust for pain, moving closer to a threshold of unimaginable evil. And Mark is warned by a beautiful stranger to take his wife away before it's too late.

But it's already too late. Because Rae hasn't come home. Now Mark is in a race against time -- to find NightWhere again and save his wife from the Watchers and what they serve. To stop her from taking that last step through the degradations of The Red into the ultimate BDSM promise of The Black. More than just their marriage and her life are at stake: Rae is in danger of losing her soul...and more!

DESCRIPTION:

Every wizard's story has a beginning…

Let's go back to the night I turned thirteen, the night Grandpa sliced my finger with his cane sword.

I can't say what terrified me more, the cold anger in his eyes or the crazy things in his locked study. A talking trunk. Squirming coats. A bookshelf whose titles shifted before my eyes. And one chilling title in particular: Book of Souls.

Ten years later and I'm en route to a Romanian monastery, in search of that lost book. But I'm not the only one. Three others have beaten me to the local village: two researchers and… well, I'm not sure who Flor is, other than Spanish, secretive, and sexier than a summer dress.

Can I trust her -- or any of them? I don't know, but we've got werewolves on our scent, not to mention an ancient curse hanging over the remote ruins.

Getting there and back is going to require serious cooperation.

Or serious magic.

Book of Souls is the prequel to the 200,000+ selling Croftverse. If you like occult action, spell-crackling suspense, and moments of heart, heroism, and all-out laughter, you'll love Prof Croft!

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:

Eight stories from the author of A Book of American Martyrs that display her "mastery of imagery and stream of consciousness" (Kirkus Reviews).

Joyce Carol Oates is an unparalleled investigator of human personality. In these eight stories, she deftly tests the bonds between damaged individuals--brother and sister. teacher and student, two lonesome strangers on a subway--in the beautiful, bracing prose that has become her signature.

In the title story, a white, aspiring professor in Detroit tries to shake a black, male shadow during the summer of the city's 1967 race riots. In "The Rescuer," a promising graduate student detours to inner-city Trenton, New Jersey, to save her brother from a downward spiral, only to find herself entranced by his dangerous new world. Meanwhile, a young woman prowls the New York City subways in search of her perfect man in "Lorelei." In each of these short stories, Oates portrays a desperate confrontation with the demons inside us. Sometimes it's the human who wins, and sometimes it's the demon.

"Oates offers unexpected glimmers of redemption amid the grotesquerie, degradation, and exploitation that fill this collection's eight tales." --Publishers Weekly

DESCRIPTION:

I'd like to give special thanks to Jason Merrick for the great cover.

Alcorn Pet Food Corporation is working with an experimental cat food laced with hormones and appetite enhancers. The special food causes cats to add muscle, gain weight, and exhibit extremely aggressive behavior. When an employee threatens to expose the pet food as a threat to public safety, she finds herself out of work, her home ransacked, and all her carefully gathered proof missing. Meanwhile, animal rights activists release the cats involved in the testing because they are scheduled to be euthanized. These bigger, stronger, and more aggressive animals begin to prey on small game in the area. Then the ravenous cats turn their attention to people.

Lovers, runners, hunters, dogs, deer, rabbits, normal cats, and even motorists begin to fall victim to the predations of these enhanced felines. An unemployed scientist, a small special ops team, a grieving father, a chief of security, and a homeless veteran join forces to try to prevent a catastrophe.

When a murderer steals the secret formula that created the menace and sells it to eight foreign enemies of the United States, the stakes suddenly get a lot higher, because the most deadly biological weapon ever created has just been released. The genie is out of the bottle and the world will never be the same.

To make matters worse, the scientist discovers that the first generation offspring will be even bigger and more aggressive, and then they learn that the food also affects dogs and rats.


Disclaimer

No animals or people were harmed during the writing of this book. The author does not hate cats, dogs, women and children, animal rights activists, homeless people, hunters, runners, truck drivers, maintenance men, chicken farmers, police officers, sheriff's deputies, women who text while driving SUVs, or the elderly. However, the author is deathly afraid of anyone who texts while driving because of several near death experiences attributable to such individuals.

The author is a cat lover, but he is also a writer. This book started with the basic premise of what if. What would happen if a pet food were tampered with in such a way as to make the animals abnormally large and aggressive? Writing this book was, at times, painful for the author who feeds and pets a feral cat on a regular basis. But as a writer, the author felt the storyline was too good not to write, just because it made him uncomfortable.

The setting of this story is in Athens, Alabama, which is where the author resides. Athens was chosen because of his intimate knowledge of the city and the surrounding area. To the best of the author's knowledge, there are currently no homeless people residing in Athens. The depiction in this book of such an individual is the product of the author's imagination and is there for storyline purposes only. There is an animal feed manufacturing plant located where the author situated Alcorn Pet Food Corporation in the book. However, it is not configured as described in the book. The author went with that location because of the surrounding terrain, but the real facility is not named Alcorn. The feed produced at that location by the real company is safe.

As far as the author knows, there is no real pet food company by the name Alcorn. That company is the product of his imagination. His research on the fictitious name found no connection to the pet food industry.

The personalities, traits, and decisions made by government officials in portions of this book are not based on the actual individuals currently holding those offices, or any who have held them in the past. They are the product of the author's imagination.

The epic sequel, Claws 2. After the Apocalypse, is now available in the Kindle store.

A Philip K. Dick Award Winner from "a brilliant writer": In a ravaged California, a man tries to rescue his lost love from a soul-devouring religious cult (William Gibson).
In the twenty-second century, the City of Angels is a tragic shell of its former self, having long ago been ruined and reshaped by nuclear disaster. Before he was in a band in Ellay, Gregorio Rivas was a redeemer, rescuing lost souls trapped in the Jaybirds cult of the powerful maniac Norton Jaybush. Rivas had hoped those days were behind him, but a desperate entreaty from a powerful official is pulling him back into the game. The rewards will be plentiful if he can wrest Urania, the official's daughter and Gregorio's first love, from Jaybush's sinister clutches. To do so, the redeemer reborn must face blood-sucking hemogoblins and other monstrosities on his way to discovering the ultimate secrets of this neo-Californian civilization.

One of the most ingeniously imaginative writers of our time, Tim Powers dazzles in an early work that displays his unique creative genius, earning him a nomination for the Nebula Award. Alive with wit, intelligence, and wild invention, Dinner at Deviant's Palace is a mad adventure across a dystopian future as only Tim Powers could have imagined it.
