Factory Town: A hallucinatory descent into an urban hell that rivals Jim Thompson for stark terror. Jon Bassoff is a master of that territory where pulp becomes poetry, crime fiction mates with horror, but this novel very much its own self—an unnervingly individual piece of work.” —Ramsey Campbell, Bram Stoker award-winning author of Ancient Images

“For those of us who love the horror-crime genre, Jon Bassoff is a Godsend. Creepy, poetic, and beautifully dark, Factory Town is an absolutely mesmerizing ride.” —John Rector, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Already GoneLost Things, and Out of the Black

“Jon Bassoff has a unique talent for mining heart-breaking humanity from troubled souls stranded in wretched landscapes. His razor-sharp prose cuts to the marrow of a very noir bone. Read him if you dare.” —Christopher Ransom, Internationally bestselling author of The Birthing House and The Fading

Factory Town is a journeyman’s surreal voyage through the very heart of hell. A novel full of a crazed, ugly, vivid, disturbing energy held together by a deft hand. Bassoff is the king of creepy crime-horror fiction.” —Tom Piccirilli, author of The Last Kind Words

“By turns brutal and lyrical, shocking and uplifting, Factory Town provides a visceral experience unlike any other novel you’ll read this year. Jon Bassoff is quickly becoming a must-read author in the field of dark fiction.” —Allan Leverone, author of Mr. Midnight 

Factory Town is the novel Kafka would have written had he lived longer…This is nihilism in its final, apocalyptic, terrible form.” —Les Edgerton, author of The Rapist and The Bitch

“Populated with a horrifying mixture of down-and-outs and grand, fabulous personae, Factory Town is like a journey to hell told within a new and startingly creative apocalyptic mythology.” —Steve Rasnic Tem, author of Deadfall Hotel and Blood Kin

“Jon Bassoff’s Factory Town reads like a forgotten outtake from Springsteen’s Nebraska, played backwards and piped through the air tube of Flann O’Brien’s safety coffin. It’s a howl out loud and a headfuck supreme, and I loved every word.” —Benjamin Whitmer, author of Pike and Cry Freedom

Angel of the AbyssANGEL OF THE ABYSS by Ed Kurtz

When Graham Woodard is hired to restore part of a previously lost silent horror film—Angel of the Abyss—the last thing he expects is the first in a series of murders clearly meant to keep it lost.

With one-time friend Jake Maitland in tow, the two must now navigate the treacherous enigma that is the lost film, while piecing together the story of the film’s ill-fated starlet, Grace Baron, who vanished in 1926. The closer they get to the truth, the more blood is spilled, and it soon becomes apparent that there is much more to the lost film than anyone expected, as there are still forces that will stop at nothing to keep it and its star buried. The darkness the strange film conjured all those years ago has come alive again with its discovery, and now everyone from Graham’s own estranged ex-wife to the LAPD is getting involved.

And the body count is growing.

From the burgeoning film studios of 1920s Hollywood to the perilous streets and dark underbelly of modern-day Los Angeles, Angel of the Abyss is a dangerous tapestry of cinema, history and murder, at the center of which stand two men with everything to lose.

Oasis of the DamnedOASIS OF THE DAMNED by Greg F. Gifune

When her helicopter crashes in the middle of the Sahara, Heather Richter, a former Army Captain and veteran of the Iraq War, finds herself at an abandoned WWII military outpost in one of the harshest and deadliest deserts on Earth. But she soon realizes there is another victim of the desert in this empty expanse of endless sand. Owens, a victim of an earlier plane crash, is there as well. An enigmatic and brooding man, he knows the secrets of the outpost, that it was actually built on top of an oasis and a natural well, the only thing that’s kept him alive. But he also knows the darker secrets of this strange and forgotten patch of desert hell.

He and Richter are not alone. And the cruel terrain and relentless sun are the least of their worries, because inhuman things haunt the outpost, hideous and violent things that only come at night. Ancient, evil creatures hungry for human flesh, and no matter how many Richter and Owens kill, they just keep coming.

With little hope of rescue, and tortured by her horrific experiences in Iraq years before, as well as the untimely and tragic death of her younger brother, Richter struggles to maintain her sanity amidst the brutal attacks that occur each time night falls, all the while trying to figure out if Owens is truly what he claims, or something more.

Is anything as it seems, or is there something more profound happening, a shocking wound bleeding deeper than the ancient sands, the dark desert nights and the blistering sun?

Two lost souls…a forgotten outpost in a haunted desert…vicious creatures bent on destruction…

The brutal fight for survival has begun.

Gary Fry’s late novella, Mutator, is now available to download.

James Parry thought he moved into his dream home in the country to enjoy his retirement from a stressful life of academia. But he soon finds out the house and its former owner share a peculiar history.

There’s the mysterious underground room James finds tunneled into his basement, where he discovers an otherworldly machine adorned with strange levers and flashing lights, various handwritten notebooks containing pioneering scientific theories, and crudely drawn pictures of a being that appears anything but human.

And then there’s the curious silver ball that falls from the sky into his front yard, forcing him to question everything he’s ever believed about the nature of the universe.
