Greg F. Gifune’s CHILDREN OF CHAOS Released In Paperback

There’s been a lot of renewed interest from Hollywood for the classic novel originally published by Delirium Books in 2009.  DarkFuse has now released Children of Chaos as a paperback to coincide with the Kindle edition.

Children of Chaos

In a torrential downpour, Phil, Jamie and Martin—three teenage boys—encounter a strange and enigmatic man covered in horrible scars who will change their lives, their destinies and the very fate of their souls forever. When their encounter mistakenly leads to murder, they realize this eerie stranger may not have been a man at all, but something much more…

Thirty years later the boys—now men—lead tormented lives filled with horrifying memories of the scarred man and what they did all those years ago in the rain. Phil is a struggling writer, divorced, with a daughter and a mounting drinking problem. Jamie is a defrocked priest with depraved secrets and horrible addictions, and Martin, a madman who thinks himself a god, has vanished into a desolate desert region of Mexico and established a feared and violent blood cult. When Martin’s dying mother hires Phil to find her son and bring him home, Phil embarks on a perilous journey that will take him from the seedy streets of Tijuana, to a dangerous and allegedly haunted stretch of desert Mexican road known as The Corridor of Demons. At the end of the road, in an old and previously abandoned church, Martin and his followers wait in the Hell-on-Earth they’ve created deep in the desert. There will be only one chance for redemption, one chance for salvation, and one chance to stop the rise of an antichrist’s bloody quest for demonic power.

From the void, came chaos. These are its children.

It's Only Death

Six years ago James blew town after killing his cop-father in a bank job gone bad. When his sister informs him that their mother’s health is fading fast, he returns home, wanting to make peace with her before she passes.

But James quickly finds there is little peace left for him at his childhood home.

His father’s old partner has been biding his time, waiting for a chance at retribution, and finally discovers James is back. But he’s only one of the many shady characters James must face if he is to survive the next few days.

Not only must James survive his return, he must also face the devastation he left behind, the shattered pieces of what remained of his life before he was forced to run.

Now his days on the run are over.

Upon the edge of reckoning, James’s past comes full circle to the final showdown with his personal demons and the devils that are closing in.

It’s Only Death is an explosive, gritty tale of urban crime and one man’s descent into the nightmares in the darkest recesses of our society.

SKINNER by David Bernstein

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.

For the next 14 days, DarkFuse will be publishing The Wards by Alan Ryker in its online magazine.  Part 1 of 14 is now live!


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.

Cooper’s DARK FATHER Kindle Countdown Sale

For the next few days, James Cooper’s Kindle edition of Dark Father is on sale for only $0.99 / £0.99 at Amazon.

Dark Father

What drives a violent husband and dysfunctional father to pursue his wife and son across a moonlit English landscape?

What compels a troubled man to rebuild his broken family, constructing a fractured reality of hollow promises and false hope?

What forces an old man suffering from a rare mental disorder to reconcile the terror of the past with the daily torment of being locked in a mental hospital where everyone he sees bears the face of his father?

The answers lie in a disturbing journey of suffering and harrowing self-discovery.

Evil has many fathers…

Dark Father is a wonderful piece of writing that satisfies on every level.” —Dark Musings

“…Keeps the tension ratcheted up to a frantic level.” —Examiner

“An emotional roller coaster that leads to the darkest corners of the human soul…an amazing story with extremely well-developed characters and a plot so full of twists and turns that I was anticipating each new page.” —The Haunted Bookshelf

“This is truly dig-beneath-the-bone disturbing; it gave me a feeling similar to Michael Haneke’s Funny Games (without the postmodern tricks)…It does what the best dark fiction should do: conjure terror from plausible episodes, from characterisation that rings true…A great, great book.” —Gary Fry, author of Conjure House

Calvillo’s LAMBS Kindle Countdown Sale

For the next few days, Michael Louis Calvillo’s Kindle edition of Lambs is on sale for only $0.99 / £0.99 at Amazon.


Plagued by a trio of murderous ghosts, Arthur has bigger problems than your average teenager. Young love, wild hormones, and The System haunt him, but those phantoms are nothing compared to the concern he has when watching the darkened corners and deep shadows around him. These spaces are now consumed by a spectral evil seemingly hell-bent on destroying everyone he loves.

As the bodies pile up, Arthur distances himself from his roommate, Connor, a pyromaniac crack-baby with destructive tendencies, and his girlfriend, Melanie, an all-American Satanist with a hidden agenda. He embarks upon a grisly odyssey of self-discovery in hopes of burying the past, cleansing his soul, and obliterating the blood-thirsty spirits once and for all.
