LEFT TO DARKNESS by Craig Saunders Coming 8/11/15

Preorder your Kindle copy of Craig Saunders’s latest novel Left To Darkness before it’s release on 8/11/15 and get it for $2 off the cover price!


A meteor strikes the Earth. Dirt and dust fill the air. Only a few people remain under the setting skies, and those who still live find it’s not God’s England anymore.

It’s the Devil’s turn.

Lines are drawn between the dark and light. For the darkness, James Finley and his cult for the end of days. On the side of light, Paul Deacon, the lost policeman, and Dawn Graves, the last mother.

To survive, they must put their lives in one man’s hands: Frank Liebowicz, a killer with a soft spot for lost causes. Because come Armageddon, God won’t choose his champions.

They’ll choose themselves.

“Craig Saunders deftly weaves crime, horror, and science fiction into a style reminiscent of a combination of early Simon Clark and Brian Keene. His dialogue crackles and his characters leap from the page. Left to Darkness is an apocalyptic tour de force!” —Michael McBride, author of Sunblind and Fearful Symmetry

SKINNER by David Bernstein Released

Now available in Kindle eBook and paperback editions…


For six close friends, a weekend away turns deadly when their vehicle skids off the road and crashes in a remote part of the Adirondack Mountains.

In the direct path of a blizzard, they are hurt, cold and scared, wondering if they’ll make it through the night. But the group’s luck seemingly changes when they take refuge in a small cabin.

Their plan is simple: wait for the storm to pass. But there is something else out there that has its own plans for them.

Invade. Reveal secrets. Invoke madness. Make enemies out of friends. Create chaos. And shed blood.


“Fast-paced, cinematic, and excellent. Horror fans gather around, it’s time for another chilling tale from David Bernstein.”  —Keith Deininger, author of Within and Ghosts of Eden

“A harrowing, brutal thriller, Skinner is Bernstein at his best!” —Peter Giglio, author of Shadowshift

Michael McBride’s ANCIENT ENEMY Kindle Deal

To celebrate Ancient Enemy being a 2015 Kindle Book Award Semi-finalist, DarkFuse has dropped the price of the Kindle edition to only 99 cents (save $6!).

Ancient Enemy

Sani Natonaba’s ancestors have lived in these canyons for more than seven hundred years, but they aren’t the only ones. When he awakens to the bleating of his family’s sheep being slaughtered, he learns that something is stalking this isolated corner of the reservation, a predator unlike any he has encountered before, one that attacks with alarming stealth and ferocity.

Only his grandfather knows what lurks outside in the darkness, but a stroke has left him unable to communicate, forcing Sani to embark upon a journey into the distant past to discover the horrible truth. And he’s running out of time. There’s no sign of an end to the killing and already he’s found claw marks and strange footprints around his home.

Sani must decipher the clues hidden a millennium ago by the Anasazi before their mysterious disappearance if he’s to have any hope of surviving the impending confrontation with an ancient enemy that has already hunted his bloodline to the brink of extinction.

Tiny Terrors Week 1 + The Wards Coming Soon


DarkFuse Magazine’s Tiny Terrors series on Twitter launched this past week and the 5 nominees were chosen by the book club.  Check them out HERE and submit your vote on which terror-filled tweet you think is the best.


Starting July 27th, DarkFuse Magazine will be publishing its second serial The Wards by Alan Ryker.

Elizabeth doesn’t feel in control of her own life, which is probably why she enjoys the life-simulation game The Wards so much. In a dark room, she stares at a monitor watching a miserable wretch. It’s one of her creations, a woman tormented beyond sanity’s threshold. Elizabeth feels no responsibility, no remorse, because she think it’s just a game, without real consequences.

But The Wards is much more than just a game.

Elizabeth has created a twisted new world filled with broken beings and she is now trapped there and must find a way to escape before her creations realize that she, their cruel god, walks among them.

Want to read the serial? Subscribe to DarkFuse Magazine before July 27th to get the complete series.

DarkFuse Magazine Expansion Continues

DarkFuse Founder Shane Staley’s latest focus is to expand its online magazine, part of what he said he intends to do as “Getting back to having fun with his love of dark literature.”  It seems he’s wasted no time.

Following up a successful serial novella by Keith Deininger called Buried Soldiers, DarkFuse has contracted the latest novella by Alan Ryker (The Wards) which will be published in the same serial format in the magazine.


The newest magazine series was announced last night: Tiny Terrors. TT is a Twitter-driven project where authors post their dark writing in under 140 characters to be showcased on the magazine’s wall.  Part fiction experiment/part contest, the top Tiny Terrors tweets will be nominated by members of DarkFuse’s book club each week and then presented to the public to vote on the best weekly Tiny Terror.  At the year end, each weekly winner will be up for a Readers’ Choice Award, a cash prize and plaque.

DEVIL’S BREATH by Greg F. Gifune Released

Although the limited edition hardcover sold out within hours of being announced to the public, both the eBook and paperback edition of Greg F. Gifune’s latest novel are now available for sale.


“Combines a fast-paced, high-stakes plot with a graceful and even darkly poetic style.” —This Is Horror

“Part mystery, part suspense, part horror—it’s hard to categorize. I’ll just say it was excellent and leave it at that.” —Horror After Dark

“A brooding and atmospheric story that combines the best of mystery, noir, horror and supernatural genres, creating a unique and compelling tale…a compulsively readable work.” —Hellnotes

“Greg F. Gifune may be the scariest man alive. Devil’s Breath is a walk along the border of madness and despair that challenges the reader to face the darkness that lurks within all of us.” —Examiner

“The literary equivalent of a man lost in a nightmare…Devil’s Breath slips effortlessly between the world of nightmare and the nightmare that haunts reality, between lucidity and insanity, all through a seemingly impenetrable blackness.” —Scream Magazine

DarkFuse Launches Signature Series With DEVIL’S BREATH

A few weeks ago, DarkFuse announced via e-mail to its collectors that the company will be slimming down its limited edition line and offering only selected future novels (4-6 titles per year) in a rare 52-copy limited hardcover edition called the Signature Series.  Besides the rarer edition of a 52-copy print run, this new hardcover will feature the author’s signature stamped into the actual cover of the book below the artwork.


The first title in this series is Devil’s Breath by Greg F. Gifune and it went live today to the public, but only 5 copies were made available (as the rest were pre-sold to existing DarkFuse collectors).

Anyone who orders this first book in the series will have first shot at getting the next book and matching their numbers, as they will receive a 10-day advance notice before the 2nd title in the series is made available to the public.
