LAMONSTERS OF L.A. by Lisa Morton (trade paperback edition)

In these pages you’ll find the dark stars you grew up watching: Frankenstein, Dracula, Mr. Hyde, the Phantom, the Hunchback…all the silent ones and the first to find their voices are here, and they’re even presented in roughly the order in which they first appeared on a silver screen. The Haunted House of the ‘30s gives way to the Werewolf of the ‘40s, the Monsters of L.A. Creature of the ‘50s, and so on, all the way up to our favorite modern boogeyman, the Zombie.

In some of these stories, you’ll find an earthly incarnation of a famous namesake: Frankenstein is a patched-together, homeless vet, the Invisible Woman is so ordinary you’d never see her; but some of these familiar friends — Dracula, the Devil, or those seriously creepy Clowns — will be instantly recognizable.

LeavesWHEN THE LEAVES FALL by Paul Melniczek (trade paperback edition)

Every town holds its share of secrets.

Some more than others…

Halloween is coming soon to Haverville, and two best friends have decided to test their courage against the local haunted house, Graver’s Farm. With the brashness and wildness of youth behind them, Chris and Kyle begin an October adventure which takes them beyond dark cornfields and dusky landscapes, forcing them both down an unexpected path which will change them forever, and ultimately threatens their very lives. The sights and sounds of Halloween surround them at every angle, but the night can wear some very unpleasant masks, as they will soon find out…

In “When the Leaves Fall”, Paul Melniczek strips away the Halloween mask of the American Dream to reveal the haunted tragedy lurking beneath the surface. The myths of family, hard work and small towns are all rendered in startling orange and black colors, and this taut little work packs a surprising emotional punch. A welcome addition to the ranks of Halloween fiction.

Lisa Morton, Bram Stoker Award winning author of THE HALLOWEEN ENCYCLOPEDIA, THE SAMHANACH, and THE CASTLE OF LOS ANGELES.

7 Brains by Michael Louis Calvillo. Burning Effigy Press. 60 page chapbook.

Humanity is on the cusp of a New Evolution. Yep! Pure Emotion has curdled and given way to empty solutions, a gilded edge of bling-bling exteriors masking Rampant Corruption, Souring Evil and Internal Pollution.

Our hero, Malcolm, the reluctant man with a reluctant plan, purpose fluttering in his chest from zero to a million miles an hour in seconds flat, holds the keys to the kingdom of light. All he has to do is eat seven lovely brains and set things right. He’s got a hacksaw, and a hammer, and a set of determined, pearly whites. Can he usher in hope before the imminent descent of everlasting night?

Soon Attilio is making love with this woman.

Soon, he is fighting to save himself from the jaws of a ravenous monster..

Along his blood-splattered path he will face traitorous comrades, a dangerously obsessed priest, the same volatile woman who turned him so many years before, and ultimately an enemy band of gangsters who are beings like himself….

Beings that cross at will into a mysterious alternate world. Beings that transform into hideous creatures impervious to bullets, knives and bombs….

Creatures with a thirst for money, power and…blood..

Blindspot by Michael McBride. Dark Regions Press. Signed Limited softcover.

At 2:31 a.m., seismic monitoring stations in China and South Korea detect a magnitude-4 event consistent with a nuclear detonation in the southeastern corner of North Korea, within the Korean Demilitarized Zone. With the threat of full-scale war escalating by the minute, the United Nations Security Council dispatches an elite unit of peacekeepers to cross the border, penetrate the cloud of dust hanging over the site, and determine the exact nature of the seismic disturbance. What they find triggers a series of events that culminates in a civilian biomedical engineer boarding a transport carrier at Ft. Detrick, Maryland, bound for the Far East.

His name is Dr. Parker Ramsey and he is uniquely qualified for this mission.

He is the brains behind a secret project–Code Name Hindsight–developed under the oversight of the United States Army Medical Research and Materiel Command. Hindsight has never been field-tested, but with global catastrophe looming on the horizon, the only chance of averting it lies in utilizing the project’s extraordinary capabilities. If it works, Dr. Ramsey will be able to unravel the mystery behind the detonation and identify the responsible party.

For, thanks to Hindsight, Dr. Ramsey will be able to see something that no one has ever seen before…

He’ll be able to see the moment of death through the eyes of the dead.

If he’s able to survive long enough to do so.

UNDERTAKER’S MOON by Ronald Kelly (signed limited hardcover)

A graveyard feast beneath the summer moon …

The rural town of Old Hickory. Tennessee was a quiet, picturesque community … until the O’Sheas came to town.

Becoming the new proprietors of the town’s only funeral parlor, with the help of their charming patriarch, Square McManus, the Irish family was wholeheartedly accepted by the local townfolk. The thing began to happen. Strange things … horrible, unspeakable things … in the dead of night.

The sighting of wolfish beasts congregating around an open grave in the town cemetery. Frightening changes in several of Old Hickory’s less desirable residents. And the brutal murder and devourment of a varsity football player in the wooded wilderness outside of town. Soon, what was once concealed in shadow and secrecy was now starkly revealed, in all its ravenous fury, by the silvery light of the full moon.

As the residents of Old Hickory, as well as the local police, begin to fall victim to an unknown evil, four individuals—the town nerd, a high school jock, a widowed gunsith, and a mysterious transient from a distant shore—find themselves facing what could possibly be a hellish lycanthrope from ancient Ireland … the legendary Arget Bethir … the Silver Beast.

FearFEAR by Ronald Kelly (signed limited edition)

1946.

A sleepy Tennessee town.

A young farm boy coming of age.

And a creature of unspeakable horror…

Ten-year-old Jeb Sweeny had troubles aplenty. A sick grandmother, a shell-shocked father with the mind of a child, and a terrifying creature that had appeared from nowhere, wreaking havoc in the darkness of night. At first it had devoured only farm animals, but now it had turned its sinister cravings upon human fare. Children began to disappear and spirited away to a hidden cave… including Jeb’s best friend, Mandy.

Jeb’s only hope to defeat the evil critter is to journey into the dark heart of the monster’s origin… a hellish providence known as Fear County. A place of shadow and depravity, filled with horrors so diverse and unimaginable that it boggled the mind and burdened the soul. Together, Jeb, his father, Sam, the traveling bluesman, Roscoe Ledbetter, and Jeb’s bluetick hound, Buckshot, would cross the border into boundless evil and madness… in search of the fabled Granny Woman and the hope of a magic conjured of goodness and light.

STEPHEN KING 11.22.63 LIMITED EDITION!

11.22.63

11.22.63 by Stephen King (limited collector edition with DVD)

Slipcased Hardcover with DVD written and narrated by Stephen King, which will take you back to the Kennedy-era America. 500 with deluxe binding, photographic endpapers and with author’s facsimile signature.

WHAT IF you could go back in time and change the course of history?

WHAT IF the watershed moment you could change was the JFK assassination? 11/22/63, the date that Kennedy was shot—unless . . .

King takes his protagonist Jake Epping, a high school English teacher from Lisbon Falls, Maine, 2011, on a fascinating journey back to 1958 – from a world of mobile phones and iPods to a new world of Elvis and JFK, of Plymouth Fury cars and Lindy Hopping, of a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and a beautiful high school librarian named Sadie Dunhill, who becomes the love of Jake’s life—a life that transgresses all the normal rules of time.

With extraordinary imaginative power, King weaves the social, political and popular culture of his baby-boom American generation into a devastating exercise in escalating suspense.

King at his epic best: Following his most recent, massively successful novel Under the Dome, King takes readers back in time to another moment – a real-life moment – when everything went wrong: the JFK assassination. And he introduces a character who has the power to undo it.
