WAITING by Rick Hautala

“WAITING is a classic Rick Hautala book, with the claustrophobic, visceral creepiness that characterizes almost all his novels.”
— Holly Newstein Hautala

Alone …

For the first time in her life, Allie Prescott is alone. She’s left her husband, Jack, and moved out of their comfortable home. Now she’s living in a small second-floor apartment in a not-so-nice part of town and working as a waitress in a downtown restaurant. She’s struggling to figure out what she wants to do with the next stage of her life.

As much as Allie wants to be alone, what she doesn’t know is that even when she’s in her apartment … especially late at night  … she is not alone.

She is never alone.

Unseen eyes are watching her. Pale, ghostly shapes slip in and out of view. Faint, whispering voices tease her in the darkness.

The spirits who haunt her apartment have been there for a very long time … alone and waiting.

Now they’re beginning to manifest themselves because they know — and Allie will soon learn — that they have been waiting for her and her life will never be the same …

DINNER FOR ONE: A JOURNEY TO HEALING by James A. Moore

Dinner For One is a love letter from a man to his late wife. A way of saying farewell, but never goodbye. It’s a record of love and loss and what it means to be human. Jim Moore is a large man with a large heart, and while that heart has been broken, it is, as Hemingway put it, ‘strong in the broken places.'”

— From the introduction by Charles R. Rutledge

THE SEVEN WHISTLERS by Amber Benson & Christopher Golden

Legends say that on stormy nights, or during sunsets, there sometimes comes a strange whistling in the sky followed by sightings of enormous black dogs. But these are no ordinary dogs. They are demonic things, hounds loose from the Wild Hunt, and they are searching for lost souls. They are rarely sighted more than one at a time, but if all seven should come together, it will mean the end of the world. In the picturesque New England town of Kingsbury, Vermont, a young woman named Rose Kerrigan mourns the death of her grandfather, the sweet but strange old man who raised her. Soon, Rose will learn the legend of the Seven Whistlers. They’ve come to Kingsbury in search of a soul that has been hidden from them, and they will not leave without it. First there was one, then two…then four…If they don’t find what they’re looking for soon, perhaps all seven will gather in Kingsbury. And if all seven should come together….

“A quick, intriguing, satisfyingly creepy read, refreshingly free of emo sap. Fans of dark, post-modern fantasy should find it to be a tasty morsel.”
— The Green Man Review

“Powerful, beautifully conceived and developed, and utterly riveting. Benson and Golden have created a new mythology that rings true. This is a writing force to be reckoned with, a team who can produce the kind of modern mythic fiction that drives Gaiman, de Lint and Bull fans wild. It’s too good not to share.”

MONOCHROMES & OTHER STORIES by Matt Bechtel

Some people just see the world differently.

The author of this collection has, at times, argued that The Terminator is a love story, that Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right” is joyful rather than bitter, and that the characters of Everybody Loves Raymond are more monstrous than the Bates Family. In his first collection of original fiction, he turns his wry, satiric eye upon landscapes of his own creation — including the early days of skydiving, the terror of collecting unemployment, the extreme sport of competitive standing, a circus performer succumbing to zombie-ism, and the most anticipated day never circled on any calendar — to find horror hidden within humor, hope persisting amidst anguish, and absurdity pretty much everywhere. The views from his pen are equal parts hysterical, unsettling, and thought provoking.

Some people just see the world differently. Matt Bechtel is one of those people.

“There is a vulnerability in the stories collected in Monochromes and Other Stories that is as surprising as it is wonderful.”
— James A. Moore, author of the Seven Forges series

“If emotional sincerity was a superpower, Matt Bechtel would be the hero we’d look up to see soaring overhead. The stories in Monochromes, whether winkingly subversive, angry, absurd, or sad, all reveal something poignant about the dark truths underpinning these characters and their circumstances. Despite the title, there’s nothing monochromatic about the rich vibrancy of Bechtel’s prose. His stories are as colorful as the tights I imagine him wearing.”
— Bracken MacLeod, Bram Stoker Award nominated author
of Stranded and 13 Views of the Suicide Woods
