The Fleshless Man
by Norman Prentiss

About the Book:
"The Fleshless Man wants to kill me," his mother said.

Curtis never enjoyed the cool, oppressive atmosphere of his childhood home, and that atmosphere is even worse when he returns as an adult. His mother is dying, and her illness seems to infect everyone around her: Curtis's brother has developed a nervous habit that might indicate more serious problems; the attending nurse exhibits puzzling, possibly sinister behavior; and Curtis himself suffers from nightmares and uncharacteristic dark thoughts.

It's as if the house itself wants his mother to die more quickly--and it will achieve that goal however it can.

Even if it must inspire Curtis to imagine harming his own mother.

Even if it must summon the intervention of a strange entity called the Fleshless Man.

The Narrator
by Michael McBride and Norman Prentiss

About the Book:
Critically acclaimed horror scribes Michael McBride and Norman Prentiss team up to bring you this atmospheric tale of a schoolroom descending into madness.

Something is wrong with Julia Linder's sixth grade class.
 
One boy's harmless tendency of getting lost becomes a crippling fog of disorientation. A girl's mild twitch turns into an obsessive pattern of frightened raps and repetition. The symptoms are spreading and the source seems to be stories that seize upon the children's deeply seated fears and intensify them exponentially.
 
How can mere stories change their behavior?
 
Abbie is a bright girl at the heart of the mystery. The others are inexplicably drawn to her and become increasingly devoted to her with each passing day. But should her classmates trust her?

by Norman Prentiss

About the Book:
Do you see the point of the story, Nathan? We all cut parts of ourselves away, but we never lose them. Things stay with us—souvenirs with memories attached. We can't always choose what to keep, what to throw away.

Nathan's parents devised cautionary tales for him and his sister—gruesome stories about predatory cars racing along the "Big Street" at one end of their neighborhood, or dope fiends lurking in the woods behind their house and ready to plunge hypodermics into the skin of foolish young trespassers. These stories se

With the brilliant Salome, Mick Garris is at the top of his game, daggered and wise.  Fiercely offbeat, its mystery mesmerizes, its wit beheading Hollywood's sunny decay. The writing astonishes and the desperate dreams of Garris's lost and magnificent will break your heart.

Salome

About the Book:
I thought I hated my wife. Until she was murdered.

I thought I knew her, too. Better than anyone.

The spouse is always the first suspect. You feel guilt regardless of how far you are from the scene of the crime. I couldn't help but feel complicit, that our mutual and growing hatred had somehow taken root and led to this. I knew it wasn't true in a legal sense, but I felt dirty with responsibility regardless.

Maybe I never really hated m

John Dies At the End

About the Book:
My name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours.

You may not want to know about the things you'll read in these pages, about the sauce, about Korrok, about the invasion, and the future. But it's too late. You're in the game. You're under the eye.

The Loveliest Dead
by Ray Garton

Note for Collectors:
Sorry, the Deluxe Lettered Edition has already sold out!

About the Book:
To most people it's just a large house, old and a bit run-down.

To the Kellar family it's a new start, a chance to wipe out the painful past and begin again.

But soon it will become a living nightmare.

The terrors begin before the Kellars have even finished unpacking.

Who are the mysterious children playing on the rusty, vine-covered swing set in the backyard?

Who is the figure sitting in the dark corner of the bedroom at night?

Who—or what—waits in the basement?

They are the dead and they cannot rest. Horror stalks the halls of the Kellar house. And the secrets of the past are reaching from beyond the grave to destroy the living...

A Simple Plan

About the Book:
A Simple Plan marked the astonishing debut of a natural born storyteller and is one of the most talked about thrillers of the last two decades.

It's a novel about a young man, unaware of his own moral fragility, who finds an immense cache of money — and makes a seemingly plausible decision that sets his hitherto "ordinary and ordered" life on the road to chaos and horror. He is Hank Mitchell — steady, solid, devoted husband, proud new father. He tells the story.

It begins on a snowy winter afternoon. Hank is driving on a lonely country road with his brother, Jacob, and his brother's pal, when suddenly Jacob's dog leaps into the woods. Following him, the three men come upon the wreckag

About the Book:
Marriage can be a real killer. One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time, New York Times bestseller Gillian Flynn, takes that statement to its darkest place in this unputdownable masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. As The Washington Post proclaimed, her work "draws you in and keeps you reading with the force of a pure but nasty addiction." Gone Girl's toxic mix of sharp-edged wit with deliciously chilling prose creates a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn.

The Revelation

For the town of Randall, Arizona, the terror starts quietly, oddly—a senile woman in her eighties becomes pregnant.

Then the town's beloved minister mysteriously disappears, leaving his church and home hideously defiled by blasphemous obscenities scrawled in blood.

Farmers going out to their fields in the morning find their herds of goats slaughtered. Then, as the terror intensifies, the farmers themselves are massacred.

The town begins to smell of death, and the trust which has bound neighbors to one another turns to ashes.

But the relentless tide of death is only an augury of a far more uns

Brad Woods has performed a lot of autopsies, but never one like this. The body is purged of all blood.

Reporters like Rich Carter don't believe in the supernatural, but all the signs are pointing to the same conclusion: a vampire is stalking the streets of Rio Verde.
