Rogue by Greg F. Gifune
Cameron Horne has it all, an intelligent, beautiful and loving wife, a great home and a successful and important career. His life is the American Dream come true. Until things begin to change.
Without warning, he exhibits strange behavior he can’t seem to control, loses time and memories, has horrific nightmares and finds blood on his hands that may or may not be his own.
When a mysterious young man who seems to know the future begins appearing in Cameron’s backyard, things go from bad to worse. As voices and visions flood his mind, and shadowy figures watch his every move, something deep inside him comes awake, manifesting in acts of extreme rage and violence.
Is he losing his mind, or is something evil stalking him, possessing him from within and turning Cam from the mild-mannered man he’s always been into someone else…something else…
The truth is coming for Cameron Horne, and there’s going to be Hell to pay.
Ash and Bone by Lisa von Biela
Every town hides secrets…and Cromwell Bay is no exception.
Eileen Maroni is running from her past, but she envisions a new life in the tough little fishing village, where no one knows who she is—including the police.
Frank Foster just buried his best friend, and is struggling to come to terms with the devastating loss and his own self-doubt.
Nothing will ever be the same for them again when their paths cross at the Harbor Motel, and they learn what lies behind the door of room #8.
Reaping the Dark by Gary McMahon
A streetwise getaway driver…
A drug raid that ends in bloodshed…
A violent criminal hell-bent on revenge…
A secret order of occultists…
And something summoned from the darkest depths of nightmare.
Who will survive this long, dark night, and how will it change them? And what kind of horror will be born from the chaos left behind?
If the old adage is true and we reap what we sow, then only evil can be unleashed by Reaping the Dark.
Deadlock by Tim Curran
Charlie Petty is a man known for having ice water in this veins. He never backs down and is never shaken but unfortunately stirred up into the wrong crowd. As a degenerate gambler, his luck has run out and his debt has now come due.
Charlie is offered a chance to clear his tab: simply stay alone on a ship overnight to prove to its owner and potential crew that it’s not cursed nor haunted. Never mind the ship’s history of suicide, violence, mutiny and murder. Or how the ship’s past crews have gone missing or insane. The fact that no one has set foot on deck in darkness for years doesn’t phase Charlie one bit. It sounds like easy money to bust up a superstition or two.
Charlie thinks his luck is returning. Little does he know it’s about to run out completely.
Holly is not herself.
She was once a pretty young woman, healthy and strong, completely devoted to her husband Richard. When she became pregnant, he was ecstatic. They would finally have a child to complete their love.
But then Holly began to change.
She began reading strange, old books and consorting with a mysterious midwife named Mrs. Crouch. Day by day, she becomes less like the woman Richard married, slowly degenerating into something evil and monstrous.
The child she carries is not his. In fact, it’s not even human.
Holly is about to unleash hell into the world.
“Like a B-movie horror film, Worm gives the reader a world filled with monsters and a ringside seat to the apocalypse.” —Examiner
On Pine Street, the houses begin to shake. The earth begins to move. The streets crack open and yards split asunder…and rising from subterranean depths far below, a viscid black muck bubbles up and floods the neighborhood.
In it are a ravenous army of gigantic worms seeking human flesh. They wash into houses, they come up through the sewers, through plumbing, filling toilets and tubs, seeking human prey.
Cut off from the rest of the town, the people of Pine Street must wage a war of survival or they’ll never see morning. As bad as the worms are, there’s something worse—and far larger—waiting to emerge.
“This is a story of gore and goop and glub and glop…After reading Worm you’ll never set on a toilet the same way again.” —Trent Smith, Pulp 300
“A glorious, fun filled and hugely thrilling read.” —Ginger Nuts of Horror
