Deadman’s Tome The Ancient Ones

by Raven McAllister

This collection of dark, Lovecraftian horror contains stories that would hopefully please Cthulhu and the rest of The Ancient Ones.

Webb explores the ocean depths for a thing that should not be. A strange dark infestation thrives in the dorms of cursed university in HELL BEYOND EARTH by Jared Kane.

Anderson frames a Lovecraft Old Ones story in the Old West with a showdown between gunslingers and Shoggoth. A traveler discovers an ancient journal that tells of ungodly cultist horror during the dark ages in The Tomb in the Sands by Jeff Robertson. The collection closes with War Crimes by M.R.

Al di là dello zenith (Italian Edition)

by Stefano Saccinto

Sico viaggia attraverso gli universi in una strana notte in cui la morte è sospesa. Nove mondi, nove anime da salvare, nove abissi di morte sempre più profondi da cui alzare lo sguardo verso il punto più lontano in alto nel cielo, il punto di convergenza di una intera vita, il limite di contatto tra la realtà e l’infinito. A Sico tocca comportarsi da eroe, ma non lo è. E’ un antieroe o il più crudele degli eroi, non ha più un’anima, l’ha lasciata marcire nel buio e ora non vuole nient’altro che il mondo si dimentichi per sempre di lui. Ma ha lasciato un segno, profondo come un ferita e continua a lasciarne altri, sempre più sanguinosi e per questo vivi. Sico diventa l’eroe che non vuole essere perché è nella sua natura, nell’indole di chi vuole vivere davvero o morire pur di non sopravvivere soltanto. Sico è il simbolo della scelta estrema della vita vissuta fino in fondo e oltre se stessa, della proiezione della coscienza verso l’infinito. Attraversa la notte magica come attraversando una vita intera e si spinge oltre l’impossibile per vincere la morte. E’ la volontà di espandere fino ai limiti estremi la propria coscienza e Al di là dello zenith è il suo scenario ideale. Un libro contorto, cupo, violento, strano e visionario. Un libro che ha valore soltanto finché il lettore è disposto ad abbandonarsi definitivamente a se stesso e a trasformarsi in coscienza del tutto.

Peter and his partner must race to find a missing teen before she becomes the next sacrifice to summon an unspeakable evil.

The Five

by Brenda Beausoleil

If revenge is a dish best served cold, Missy chose a good night to return home.
As a blizzard blows through their small town, The Five are reunited. As girls, they had ruled the school. They were not just popular, smart, and pretty. They were the most popular, the smartest, and shined in ways other girls could only envy. If you were in their orbit, life was good. To be on their bad side, though, would lead to the kind of hell only youngsters with more time than common sense can inflict on each other.
Missy had been their favorite target. Missy had been their undoing.
And, as the storm raged, Missy had returned to settle the score.
Separated by shifting loyalties, the women must put aside their squabbles and come together one last time to survive the threat or stand alone against overwhelming odds.
Missy is in control, though. And, it won’t be pretty.
Sometimes, the past has teeth. And, it bites hard.

DARK NEEDS: 3 Horror Short Stories Collection

Every vice has a terrifying price…

In this collection of three twisted tales of horror, award-winning author Brian Moreland explores the obsessions of desperate people who cross boundaries into dark places to fulfill their deepest needs.

The Dealer of Needs – Addicted to a dangerous new drug, vice cop Alex Decker searches the seedy side of Hollywood for a legendary dealer who can fulfill anyone’s needs.

Offspring – Driven to get what she wants most, New York journalist Cara Klein travels to the backwoods of New Jersey’s Pine Barrens to a mystical place where whatever you wish for comes true.

Chasing the Dragon
– Nick Meyers searches Hong Kong’s underworld for his missing lover, a Chinese woman whose life was just as much a riddle as her disappearance.

What readers are saying …

“Brian Moreland’s mixture of crime, drama, suspense, horror, the supernatural, the occult, and history always makes his stories jump off the page as if they should be on the big screen.”
–Oh for the Hook of a Book”
“Brian Moreland is a thinking man’s horror novelist. He’s not content to merely tell a story that chills you. He wants you to feel gutted by that story to the point that you reassess your life.” —

“Brian Moreland writes a blend of survival horror and occult mystery that I find impossible to resist. His writing is clean, precise, and, best of all, compulsively readable.  I know, when I’ve got one of his books in my hands, that I’m going to be lost to the world for hours on end. He’s just that good.”–Joe McKinney, author of Dead City and Flesh Eaters

“Moreland combines the best of what I love about horror fiction, impeccable prose, characters with a life-like depth, fantastic monsters and a palpable sense of dread that seemingly lunges off the pages and grabs you by the throat.” —Reviewer Peter Schwotzer, Famous Monsters in Filmland
