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 …

MOUNTAIN HOME by Bracken MacLeod

Lyn Lowry fantasizes about escaping her ordinary life as a waitress in a rural roadside diner, dreaming about the excitement of living in the big city. But when the first bullets smash through the windows of Your Mountain Home Kitchen, she finds herself living in a nightmare instead.

Surviving the initial attack is only the beginning of the ordeal as Lyn reluctantly steps up to take control and find a way to escape alive. The other survivors trapped in the diner aren’t all eager to follow her lead, and the threat from her companions may be more dangerous than the sniper’s rifle outside. Navigating hostilities from both inside and out, Lyn quickly learns she can’t rely on anyone but herself to save her life.

And she thinks she might have seen something lurking in the dark trees at the edge of the forest. Something that wants her to know, all hope is gone.

“Damn well worth your time. A tense thriller full of well-drawn characters and an imaginative setup that puts it all in motion. This guy’s ready for the big leagues.”
— New York Times Bestseller, Christopher Golden, author of Tin Men and Ararat

“[A] VERY accomplished debut novel. I cared about the main characters… they were vividly real. Riveting debut novel.”
— World Horror Convention Grand Master Jack Ketchum, author of Off Season and The Secret Life of Souls

“Next time some fool gleefully announces ‘Small Press is dead,’ tell him to read this stunning debut, a cut–to–the–bone novel that credibly interweaves the 180° range of the human spirit and the 180° of darkness below it. The colorless evil always pushing against that micro–crust from below, while the colorless evil above is drilling for the soothing oil every psychopath seeks. A magical book, a reflective mirror of truth … and what that costs.”
— Andrew Vachss, Raymond Chandler Award winning author of the Burke series of novels and SignWave: An Aftershock Novel

DON’T GO ALONE by Christopher Golden

New York Times bestselling author Christopher Golden has always claimed to be a lifelong fan of the team-up, and in the pages of Don’t Go Alone he proves it. Over the course of his career, Golden has collaborated on at least two dozen novels, as well as comic books, screenplays, radio plays, an animated web series, short stories, and novellas. Now, for the first time, many of the stories Golden has written with his closest friends and collaborators are collected — and a brand new story debuts! Golden combines forces with Mike Mignola for tales featuring Hellboy and Joe Golem, and crosses swords with Charlaine Harris as the authors pit their fan favorite characters against one another. Amber Benson and Golden tell an early tale from the world of Ghosts of Albion, and the author resurrects one of the gods of HP Lovecraft with James A. Moore. Golden builds epic horror tales with Tim Lebbon, and presents a brand new tale of The Menagerie with Thomas E. Sniegoski!

The darkness awaits you…but Don’t Go Alone!

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
