Father and daughter, these supernatural misfits are bound by blood, their unfolding stories separated by time.

Keith Deininger’s BURIED SOLDIERS To Be Published in DarkFuse Magazine



On Monday, June 8th, 2015 DarkFuse Magazine will be publishing a 10-day serial novella by author Keith Deininger. Buried Soldiers is the latest novella to be penned by Deininger and has never before been published.

Only DarkFuse Magazine subscribers will be able to access this exclusive novella, as this title will not be published in either print or digital beyond the magazine.

Here’s a little more about this publishing event…

Alone in his childhood home, in an apocalyptic city savaged by fever and madness, Grady spends his nights beneath the moon digging in the backyard, tormented by memories of his nightmarish time at war. He digs to recover something from his childhood, evidence of a humanity to which he desperately clings to: the plastic toy soldiers he used to play with, buried somewhere in the dirt.

When he witnesses a young girl, without pity or malice, kill a young boy with a rock, he knows the Fever has spread. And when the little girl warns him that his greatest adversary is headed in his direction—the tyrant and army general known as the Bearded Man, with jet black hair twisting from chin to feet and severed heads tied about his voluminous robes like bobbing fruit ripe for picking—he knows he must find his buried soldiers before he is discovered.

But things are not what they seem to be, and the soldiers Grady unearths may be more than he’s bargained for…

DarkFuse released a surprise title yesterday by re-releasing Jon Bassoff’s debut novel, The Disassembled Man, in Kindle eBook. You can grab a copy of it for only $2.99 now before the price returns to its original cover price of $4.99 later this week.  


Frankie Avicious is a hard-luck fellow with a sordid past. Living in a dreary meatpacking town, stuck in a loveless marriage, and spending his days slaughtering cattle, Frankie has nothing to look forward to but his next swallow of bargain whiskey. His wife is threatening to leave him, and the local sociopath is threatening to kill him. And then there’s Scarlett Acres, a stripper with a heart of fool’s gold. Frankie can’t stop thinking about her . . .

With the encouragement of a mysterious traveling salesman, Frankie sets out to reverse his destiny through a series of bizarre murders. The consequences of his brutality turn out to be far worse than even he could imagine.


The Disassembled Man is a damn fine read; a brilliant and raw example of the Psycho Noir genre.” —Crime Scene Scotland

“Bassoff has written sheer, nasty beautiful prose with this book. The wince factor is high and the characters horridly riveting. The envelope has not just been pushed, but set on fire.”  Crime Spree Magazine

The Disassembled Man is remarkable for its ugliness. It’s hard to think of a book with a character as despicable as Frankie Avicious. This Jim Thompson on mescaline story is not for the faint of heart.” —Independent Crime

“The power of this book, and it has considerable power, is that Bassoff never apologies for his people or their story. An impressive and imposing debut.” —Ed Gorman, author of The Poker Club

DarkFuse Founder Live Tweets #CharlieCharlieChallenge With Amazing Results

Summoning Mexican demons seems to be a perfect fit for the horror crowd, so on a dare from one of his Twitter followers, horror publisher and DarkFuse-founder Shane Staley decided to live-tweet his own #CharlieCharlieChallenge with some amazing results.

Haven’t heard of this challenge? Check out this CNN article for more information on the new sensation that is sweeping the nation. In a nutshell, it’s a cross between using the Ouija board and summoning some ghost or demon like Bloody Mary.

Staley’s attempt at the challenge was less than a success.  See for yourself…


Preorder New Novels by Gifune & Bernstein

Due out July 2015 from DarkFuse…


In a dying coastal town near Cape Cod, Stanley Falk lives a quiet and unassuming life as a dishwasher. A shell of what and who he once was, Stanley is a man with a dark and violent past who does his best to forget by drinking it all away. But one morning he awakens to find his meager bank account emptied and his memory of the drunken evening prior wiped clean.

Vague memories and terrible nightmares of evil gods, distant planets and a hideous room where torture has been practiced and blood flows like water haunt his every waking moment. Something depraved is intent on dragging him back into the same pit of darkness he’s fought his entire life to crawl out of, and now there are others, in the shadows, watching his every move and luring him closer to a truth beyond comprehension…beyond evil…beyond anything he’s ever imagined possible.

You worship what you do not know.

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
