FACIAL by Jeff Strand Unleashed

And we do mean unleashed.

Get your Kindle copy HERE.


Greg has just killed the man he hired to kill one of his wife’s many lovers. He’s now got a dead body in his office.

Carlton, Greg’s brother, desperately needs a dead body. It’s kind of related to the lion corpse that he found in his basement.

This is the normal part of the story.

From Jeff Strand, the author of Benjamin’s ParasiteThe Sinister Mr. Corpse, and Fangboy, comes a tale that’s weird even by his standards.

Facial. It’s not about what you’re thinking. Well, okay, part of it is…


“A pretty weird, off the wall, I liked it kind of story!” —Paula Limbaugh, Horror Novel Reviews

“Reading Facial by Jeff Strand put me right back in my PJs, watching horrific tales of creep and cringe on late-night TV as a kid.” —Angela Wilson, Authors & Appetizers

“Completely bizarre and utterly absurd, like a Monty Python sketch that was discarded for being too dark, resurrected for a second chance by Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, and buried for good by the censors.” —Bob Milne, Beauty In Ruins

“Jeff Strand is the ringmaster in the circus of the absurd and “Facial” is another exhibit in the freak show that he so often unleashes upon the world to the delight of his fans.” —Josef Hernandez, Examiner

OASIS OF THE DAMNED by Greg F. Gifune Now Available

Oasis of the Damned

“Greg F. Gifune may be the best horror writer today…The story gets in the reader’s face with the stark horror of the evil in the desert and then hits the reader with the more subtle horror that lies in the minds of the characters.” Examiner

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.

ANGEL OF THE ABYSS by Ed Kurtz Released

Now available in both Kindle eBook and paperback editions.

Angel of the Abyss

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.

“Kurtz evokes the Hollywood of the past effortlessly.” —Crime Fiction Lover

“…Dark and moody and reading it feels dangerous. It is almost as if the story could open up and swallow the reader whole.” —Examiner
