The White Bench: A Horror Novella

by Alec John Johnson

William Bowers was living the dream. He had retired a little over a year ago at the age of thirty-six. He had always been handy with a hammer and about six years ago during the 2008 recession he got it in his head that he should be buying some of those run down foreclosed houses. Why not? He could buy them for dirt cheap, improve them, and then either rent them out or sell them for a profit. It made perfect sense, especially in the current market. Houses were at rock bottom prices.

His first house that he bought was in the older part of Carolsburg, Missouri. It was the part of town that each and every house on the block was at least sixty years old. Most of them were still in pretty good shape but there were a few that looked to be falling apart at the seams. William turned that first house for a decent profit in only a few months. The rest was history. With each passage of time he sold more and more houses.

After a couple of years of buying and selling William came across an older farmhouse just outside city limits of Carolsburg. Each side of the house was surrounded by corn and soybean fields. The only street leading away from it was a dusty gravel road that rarely had passing traffic. Here at this dilapidated farm house is where he met her. He didn’t know what she wanted from him but she was there and she would not let her presence go unknown. That much was certain.

Serial Killers Uncut

by J.A. Konrath

A gigantic double novel featuring 21 different serial killers…

For everyone who thinks the bad guys are so much more fun to read than the good guys, this is a book just for you. The definitive volume containing every major villain from the Crouch/Kilborn/Konrath Universe is here.

First, there was Serial, the collaborative smash-hit that has been downloaded 500,000 times and optioned for film.

Then came Serial Uncut, which expanded on that story.

Then Killers, the sequel to Serial.

Then Birds of Prey which introduced every major villain the writers had ever created into one cohesive novel. (Birds of Prey + Killers = Killers Uncut.)

And now, all that and more has been brought together for this definitive, omnibus monster, which at roughly 600 printed pages, is the length of two full novels…

Serial Killers Uncut

This epic work, over two years in the making, contains Serial Uncut, Killers, Birds of Prey, Crouch’s Break You, an interview with the authors, and more.

Serial Uncut + Break You + Killers + Birds of Prey = Serial Killers Uncut

If you haven’t read anything by Crouch, Kilborn, or Konrath, Serial Killers Uncut is the perfect introduction to the dark side of their universe. And if you enjoy a despicable bad guy (or bad girl), you’re going to love this.

There are twenty-one serial killers featured in this book: Lucy and Donaldson from Serial, Orson and Luther from Desert Places, Locked Doors, and Break You, Mr. K from Shaken, Alex and Charles Kork from Whiskey Sour and Rusty Nail, Isaiah from Abandon, Taylor from Afraid, Javier from Snowbound, and many, many more.

There are some good guys too, including Andrew Z. Thomas (Desert Places, Locked Doors), Jack Daniels (Whiskey Sour, Shaken), Violet King (Locked Doors, Break You), Tequila (Shot of Tequila), and Clayton Theel (Draculas).

Serial Killers Uncut is an original 120,000 word double novel that stands alone without having read any of Konrath’s, Kilborn’s, or Crouch’s work. As a bonus extra, it also includes an additional 30,000 words of the following novel excerpts:

AFRAID by JA Konrath
