THE NIGHT BELONGS TO US by Jess Landry -https://getbook.at/TheNight  (on Kindle, paperback, hardcover, and Kindle Unlimited)



In her debut collection, Bram Stoker Award-winner Jess Landry blurs the line between genres, magnifying the darkness in the spaces in between, and confronting those relationships that are nearest and dearest to us in the most horrific ways.

A mother and her daughter escape Nazi Germany, boarding the Hindenburg under the promise of a new life. An abused musical protégé discovers that her rage fuels much more than her cello-playing abilities. A hardened police officer finds something unexpected in the rising flood waters of her evacuated hometown. A woman ventures out onto the sea, in hopes of finding a mysterious mist where the dead roam freely. A strange tar infests the home of a young girl, swallowing everything in its wake, including her mother. Two broken women form a tragic bond while searching for a missing person in the dead of winter.

Mothers. Daughters. Sisters. Friends. No one is safe.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "Tension-filled and taut from the first sentence, The Night Belongs to Us is a horrifying, twisted take on motherhood, love, need, and desire."—Kaaron Warren

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "Jess Landry's debut collection The Night Belongs to Us confirms her as one of horror's scariest authors of the short form. Covering both the cosmic and the quotidian, and featuring monsters, mothers, and the macabre, Landry sucks the very breath from your lungs with the intensity and beauty of her prose. Unmissable."—Lee Murray, four-time Bram Stoker Awards®-winning author of Grotesque: Monster Stories

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "I've been following Jess Landry's work since she first came onto the scene, and she's one of those impossibly gifted writers who started at the top and then just kept getting better. I can't imagine anyone reading The Night Belongs to Us and not believing she's one of the best new writers to emerge in the last few years."—Lisa Morton, six-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award®

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "Jess Landry is without a doubt one of the very best horror authors out there. Her visionary tales are filled with heartbreak, chills, loss, and sometimes even redemption. Read The Night Belongs to Us and Other Stories as soon as you can. You need this book in your life."—Gwendolyn Kiste, three-time Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Rust Maidens and Reluctant Immortals

A storm is coming...
In 1993 New Mexico, Black Magic and High Tech find common ground in Medusa Engineering's Project Dragonfire―and for one endless October night, a fissure opens between here and Elsewhere...

"Take the premise of Stephen King's The Mist, fuse it with his short story "Trucks", and add a dash of his novel Dreamcatcher, and you get Kyle Toucher's Live Wire. Where Toucher excels and distinguishes himself is how he effortlessly creates characters that jump off the page, writes prose reminiscent of Ray Bradbury, and subverts our expectations with his sneaky infusion of cosmic horror. This is one unique, genre-bending tale that's not to be missed."—Nick Roberts, award-winning author of The Exorcist's House and Anathema

Live Wire, a horror thriller for science fiction fans, begins with four people sequestered in a desert filling station during a freak thunderstorm. Outside, one-hundred-foot electrical towers―miles and miles of them―uproot and stalk the desert. In tandem arrives The Signal, a dissonant machine language that subverts the human mind...harvesting old guilt, shame, and trauma.

Fifty miles down the road at the Very Large Array, the Medusa Engineering Corporation unleashes Project Dragonfire, a bold technological effort that has summoned a ravenous entity from the very fabric of creation—perhaps unwittingly, perhaps not.

Our ensemble includes Pale Brody and his son Caleb, en route to Austin to start a new life; Ken Lightfeather, an Apache trucker with a .44 on his hip; Kwik Gas proprietor Otis Thompson, who assumes the freak electrical storm has spawned the wandering giants; and fast-thinking Nikki Barlowe, who suspects a parallel, sinister operation―led by shadowy Medusa Engineering executive Armand Jenks―is in play.

High stakes and high octane fuel the incendiary action―mass murder and suicide, AC-130 Spectre gunships engaging the VLA in a brutal firefight, electrical towers pulverizing anything in their path, a massive gridwork of steel and feral energy blocking the only route of escape. Old ghosts and unresolved conflicts plague our characters as the signal interferes with their only task: surviving the onslaught.

The night wears on everyone as the electrical towers converge on the Kwik Gas, and only the end of the circuit reveals the nexus of their power. At dawn on Route 60, a final showdown pits human resolve against brute force and inner horror. Will an ancient, shadowless terror find dominion on Earth?

Live Wire is a tight, electrifying novel filled with action at a massive scale, terrors at the intimate level, and revelations of the Universal. If you like your fire hot, your blood red, and your metal mean, then this horror/science fiction hybrid is for you.

LITTLE MUTILATIONS is anthology of body horror novellas that's perfect for fans of Cronenberg, Kathe Koja, Eric LaRocca, Hailey Piper, Gwendolyn Kiste, SP Miskowski, Gemma Files, Nadia Bulkin, Megan Abbott, Mona Awad, and Alissa Nutting. And of course dark social satire, flawed protagonists, and of course, horror books.

"These three gifted authors reveal terror in the most intimate places. Jess Landry finds it in the need for sanctuary and the bond between a mother and daughter. Sofia Ajram uncovers it in the thousand subtle betrayals of friendship and the dispassion of a clinical trial. Nadia Bulkin unearths it in our skin-deep need for validation and the fickle vagaries of a beauty pageant. More than anything, what these authors show is that the worst terrors don't lie outside us in the dark shadows, but much closer to home, in our own bodies."—Jasper Bark, STUCK ON YOU

A novel similar to suspenseful classics like The Haunting of Hill House, The Woman in Black, and Bag of Bones.

Reeling from the loss of a child, Maggie finds her job at the local daycare unbearable and errands around town impossible. She knows every child, every single parent, and they're all reminders of what she's lost. Unable to heal, she sinks further into the grip of grief and depression.

Jake is a good guy, a great husband, and wants only the best for his broken wife. Therapy and medications aren't helping, and a change of scenery makes perfect sense. A new home. A fresh start. He is nothing but patient, giving Maggie the space and emotional support needed to move on.

But once they've settled in, Maggie offers him an alternative. And though Jake doesn't believe in ghosts, he plays along with the charade in the name of helping his wife. Until he discovers it's not a game.

They are not alone.

As the subtle activity grows violent, Jakes realizes the thing in their house has chosen Maggie as a surrogate mother, and it does not want a father figure. Jake and Maggie's fresh start has become a battlefield, and he's no longer sure which side his wife is on.

Does Jake have the strength to save them both?

This ghost thriller is perfect for fans of Shirley Jackson, Jack Ketchum, T.E.D. Klein, and Bentley Little.

It's book launch day for THE MORASS by Zachary Ashford: https://getbook.at/Morass

What if you had been kidnapped by a serial killer and your only hope of escape was cut off by rising floodwater?



The Australian Outback is a place mired in myth, folklore, and rumour that's inspired some of the best horror fiction and creature horror books. Some say it's full of deadly creatures. Others claim it's rife with serial killers hunting for backpackers and stranded tourists. Whatever the cause, young people in central Queensland are disappearing and the locals are frightened.

"The Morass is an unforgettable piece of Australian horror literature with ideas and imagery that will stay with you forever. A viscerally rendered piece of terror and suspense that you experience more than simply read. Zachary takes us deep inside the minds of his characters as we plunge further and further into an inexorable escalating nightmare that offers no mercy and no reprieve."—Jamie Blanks, director of Urban Legend and Valentine

Katy is fresh from college and ready to research and write her magnum opus, a book investigating the many disappearances of outback youths in Australia. When she meets Kip, a guitarist on his way to the city, she knows she's onto something good and that she can prove her hypothesis: there's nothing there for the youth of today and they're running away, searching for employment and prospects in the city.

Unfortunately, she's wrong. In this terrifying cosmic horror book, there is a killer in the outback. One that thinks God is the ancient creature that lurks in the swamps near his property. With floodwaters rising, he's certain Katy and Kip are the sacrifices that will allow the entity to emerge from the morass and cleanse the world of sinners. One terrifying abduction later, he has them both imprisoned.

As they struggle to escape the terror and the torture, their desperate fight for survival will lead only to more horror. Because their kidnapper is not crazy. His god is real. His god is hungry, and it is screaming to be reborn.

Will Katy and Kip survive? Will their killer succeed? Will the God in the swamp take over the world. Buy this supernatural thriller book now, and discover their fate.

Brand new Crystal Lake release!

Three unique voices in today's horror bring you new takes on an old power that threatens to reshape our world. Celtic legends are reborn within these pages, with fresh stories guaranteed to spark nightmares in the vein of Grimm's pre-Disneyfied fairy tales: https://getbook.at/DarkTide9



A Knot Within A Knot by Jason Parent: A man survives a plane crash only to find himself in darker circumstances, with a winter storm on the horizon and an orphaned child in tow. An elderly woman faces off against a god of night and his steed from the confines of her airplane seat, while another hides from night and storm in the hope of a new dawn. Unbeknownst to them, their fates are linked and dependent upon the next two tales.

Bound in the Valley of Balor by Curtis M. Lawson: After surviving a plane crash, a corrupt federal agent and a mob informant find themselves stranded in a remote valley. Blood spilled during a conflict between the two awakens an ancient evil bound beneath the valley. Can either of them escape from The Valley of Balor?

Summons by William Meikle (part of his Mythos of Sigils & Totems): Would you fall slave to the rhythm?
He came to Scotland after the death of his wife in search of peace. But the old house is restless. Something is waking, something noisy, something that will not be denied.
His search for meaning in the face of ever increasing activity in the house leads him down strange occult pathways, into deep history and a story that is racing to a finish.
The rhythm calls to him. Will he fall slave to it? Or is there a path to be the drum master before it subsumes him utterly?

This Celtic horror anthology is perfect for fans of folk horror, myths and legends, supernatural horror fiction, Grimm fairy tales, and Scottish survival horror, or fans of Ritual by Adam Nevill, Bag of Bones by Stephen King, or the legendary Ramsey Cambell.

Have you ever wondered where we go when we dream? Why not let this breath-taking dream horror anthology guide you to worlds beyond the norm: https://getbook.at/NeverWake



Since the beginning of time, people have argued the meaning of dreams. Are they symbolic visions that hold great meaning and personal significance? Are they portals into other worlds? Or are they just a series of random events our mind shows us when we fall asleep? Whatever the case, this much is true - the mind can be a scary place to venture, even for a few hours.

NEVER WAKE is an anthology of dream horror, bringing you several mind-bending tales of nightmares, hallucinations, and phantasmagoria from some of the hottest talent in horror fiction. But don't worry - when you (wake up screaming) flip the last page, just remember to tell yourself, "It was only just a story..."

Unless it wasn't.

Featuring an introduction from Sadie "Mother Horror" Hartmann and stories from Philip Fracassi.

What if the gruesome killings plaguing the quiet town of Hollow Hills were not the handiwork of a human, but something far more sinister and malevolent?

When Barker Davis stumbles into Hollow Hills one fateful day, drenched in blood from head to toe, the tight-knit community hastily points fingers at the reclusive toymaker dwelling deep within the ominous woods nearby. However, the arrest of the toymaker uncovers a tangle of questions rather than any concrete answers.

As the bloodshed continues in this horror mystery, the town teeters on the brink of madness. Their nightmare has only just begun.

Now, it falls upon Sinclair Redman to navigate this tapestry of horror, pulling the strings of truth and deception to unearth the chilling secrets hidden within Hollow Hills. Only by unlocking these grim mysteries can he hope to put an end to the rising body count that threatens to spiral out of control.
In this fast-paced small-town horror novel, fans of iconic horror entities like Annabelle and Chucky will be drawn into a fast-paced, nightmarish world that will keep them on the edge of their seats. A must-read for aficionados of chilling tales by authors such as Grady Hendrix, Josh Malerman, Jonathan Janz, and Todd Keisling's hair-raising Devil's Creek.
