Monochromes
and Other Stories

By Matt Bechtel
Published by Haverhill House

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.

 

The Seven Whistlers

By Amber Benson & Christopher Golden
Published by Haverhill House
A River City Writers Production

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….

Praise for The Seven Whistlers

“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.”

Waiting

By Rick Hautala
Introduction by Holly Newstein Hautala
Afterward by Christopher Golden
Published by Haverhill House

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 …
