Carnies

by Martin Livings

The carnival is coming…

The small town of Tillbrook has a secret. One that has been kept for over a hundred years.

Journalist David Hampden needs a good story to resurrect his flagging career.

His damaged brother, unemployed photographer Paul, just needs to find some meaning in his life.

When David is alerted to a century-old carnival, the idea of a feature story is too good to pass up, so he drags Paul along to Tillbrook.

What they find is darker than they could ever imagine.

Paul becomes part of the exotic world of the Dervish Carnival, est. 1899, and David must risk everything to save his brother.

Even though Paul might not want to be saved.

Come in and enjoy the show.

First published by Hachette Livre in 2006, Carnies is the debut novel of award-winning Australian horror writer Martin Livings, and won the Western Australian Science Fiction Foundation award for best novel of that year.

“Livings is a master of his genre and manages to draw us into his world, kicking and screaming though we might be. And his world is dark, and there are things in the darkness that howl and hunger.”

Infernal Corpse

by D.J. Goodman

The small tourist town of Mukwunaguk is all but shut down for the off season. With the first winter storm of the year on its way, waitress Angie Zwiersky isn’t expecting anything more than a handful of regulars in her cafe tonight.

No one expects the car crash outside the cafe. No one expects the young woman in the car who is obviously sick with some illness and covered in bite marks. And of course, no one expects the last tourists of the season wandering down the street, looking for all the world like zombies.

Angie never thought of herself as a leader, but she’s going to have to be one if she wants to help any of her customers survive the night. Mukwunaguk is under siege by forces none of them understand, but Angie can’t help but wondering: isn’t something about this whole situation a little too familiar?
