EPISODES OF VIOLENCE

BY DAVID BERNSTEIN

SYNOPSIS:

Amber had been looking forward to college life. She loved high school and was certain college would be even better, especially since she pledged one of the sororities on campus. At least that was what she thought until the night her soul was fractured, waking the darkness within her. Unable to cope, she returns home, hoping to heal.

Unfortunately, her hometown is wrought with brutal violence. People are being slaughtered in random fashion. The police are clueless. Despite the surrounding chaos, she is still determined to thrive. However, when the violence shows up at her front door and rips her life apart, she realizes that the darkness within her is the only thing that will keep her sane and alive.

NEXT OF KIN

BY ELTON SKELTER

COMING FEB. 2024

Even the worst of us need someone to come home to. And Jacob Mallory is the worst of all. Jake, a thrill-seeking psychopathic serial killer, has lived under the radar for years, operating within the city of New York, making kill after kill and emboldened by his lack of capture. But Jake has one big surprise coming his way. When he gets a call from the hospital to pick up a vulnerable patient, one who claims that Jake is his emergency contact, he feels like he's won the lottery. But is there more to Nathan McGuire than meets the eye? And will this supposedly vulnerable young man make or break the city's most notorious uncaught killer? 


American Psycho meets Romeo and Juliet, and this satirical horrormance will have you rooting for the bad guy as he makes space in his heart for something more. Even if that something proves to be his undoing. Everybody needs someone to come home to, and what is life without family? The family you choose is the one you deserve.

THE DEMONS OF DEVIL'S CAVERN

WRITTEN BY BRENNAN LAFARO

SYNOPSIS:

Six months after the death of “Noose” Holcomb, Buzzard’s Edge rests in an uneasy quiet, but can a town that resonates with such hatred remain peaceful for long?


Dark forces conspire to chase Rory Daggett and his mute adopted daughter, Alice, into exile, framed for a crime they didn’t commit.


With a new sheriff and a notorious killer for hire tracking their every move, the two must choose between starting a new life and saving the soul of the town that betrayed them.


Strap yourselves in tight, folks, 'cause the blood-curdling saga of Rory Daggett and Buzzard's Edge is fixin' to unleash a harrowing storm. Get ready to face a nightmarish landscape where gunpowder and the macabre collide in a haunting dance of terror.


RAVE REVIEWS:

“THE DEMON OF DEVIL’S CAVERN is a wild ride along some very dark trails in a weird version of the Old West. Fast-paced and highly entertaining. Brennan LaFaro comes out with both guns blazing!” 

-Jonathan Maberry, NY Times bestselling author of CAVE 13 and THE SLEEPERS WAR


"Brennan LaFaro takes us back to Buzzard's Edge with all the force of a revolver's bullet. In this worthy sequel to NOOSE, LaFaro amps up the stakes, the thrills, and never leaves a dull moment. With unforgettable characters and superb writing, one can only saddle up and race along to LaFaro's next excellent tale."

-Zachary Rosenberg, author of HUNGERS AS OLD AS THIS LAND


“There’s a new sheriff in town—and also plot twists, supernatural evils, and mad scientists galore. In this riveting sequel to NOOSE, LaFaro weaves multiple genres into the standard Western mythos. The result? One hell of a tale.”

-Drew Huff, author of FREE BURN


“LaFaro returns to the world of Buzzard’s Edge with both six shooters reloaded and ready to fire. THE DEMON OF DEVIL’S CAVERN sees LaFaro at his best, combining the western horror adventure of NOOSE with all the heart of his SLATTERY FALLS trilogy for his best book yet.”

-John Lynch, author of THE WARRIOR RETREAT

SPLATTERVILLE

COMING SEPT. 21 FROM JOE MONKS & FRIGHTUNSEEN.COM

SPLATTERVILLE

The history of Far Hollow is a dark one. From the cholera epidemic that left farmers and their families' bodies undiscovered for months during the winter of 1832 to the bloody mass murder in '83 to decades of disappearances attributed to a ghostly spirit haunting the woods on the outskirts of town, locals don't even tell folks they live here. They're used to its more colorful nickname...Splatterville.

Nearby towns haven't escaped the shadow that stretches from the West, either. In Berwick, you'll encounter a creepy customer who wants a very specific cut of meat from the deli in "Half a Pound, Give or Take." A young teen is bullied by the jocks to the point of breaking in the YA tale (yep, there's one in here) "Outcast." And, a severely deformed high school girl with a crush gets her wish in the only way she can when the limits of survival are tested in "Mauror Less."

Cover by Jason Moser (SICK 'N TWISTED). Interior illos by Martin Brush (Nat'l Tattle), Jason Moser and Kenny Calderon (Tragedy: The Manga, Grace Flynn & The Sword of Tristam).

Purchase through Godless or FrightUnseen and receive a property deed to your own home in this small Adirondacks town. There's skiing in the wintertime...and splatter the whole year 'round. C'mon. If you're gonna be a townie, got some secrets to share with you.

$1.99 exclusively on Godless.com on September 21st and through FrightUnseen.com directly.

$3.99 on Kindle, available September 28th

CUCKOO
Coming Sept. 1, 2023
from m ennenbach

Published by Uncomfortably Dark Horror

“Every once in a while, you come across that book you wish to hell you’d written yourself; Cuckoo is that book for me.” – Patrick C. Harrison, III, author of 100% MATCH and GRANDPAPPY

“Cuckoo is evidence that there is real magic in this world. But Ennenbach reminds us that magic is a double-edged sword. Masterpiece.” – Chris Miller, author of DUB-TOWN BLUES and THE DAMNED PLACE

“Brilliant does not begin to convey the beauty that is M Ennenbach. Once in a lifetime, you come across a writer with the power to touch your soul and leave it forever changed. Ennenbach is that writer and Cuckoo is a masterpiece.” – Candace Nola, author of BISHOP and UNMASKED.

“Ennenbach takes us on a life-altering journey of the purist love, leaving us in a bottomless pit of despair, only offering slivers of hope that fade along with the sanity of the main character. Losing our sense of reality to find what true love means is the undeniable brilliance of this novel.” - Christina Pfeiffer, co-host of Mothers of Mayhem podcast.

"A life altering journey through madness that will flip you upsidedown and make you fall in love with love again. I cried tears that will be wet on my soul forever." - Rayne Havok, author of KILLSTREME

“Ennenbach often has an ability to blow you away with his storytelling. In Cuckoo, this ability comes out in spades. Cuckoo took me through a tailspin of emotion, and I couldn't put it down.” - Jason Nickey, author of WRECKAGE

CUCKOO

by m ennenbach

Have you ever been in love? Truly, madly, deeply?

Only to lose it? 
Your tether suddenly snapped.

How broken can you become?

And how can you ever hope to piece yourself back together? 
This is a love story. 

Selected Quotes from Cuckoo:

"I looked up and out the windshield to see her looking at me. And God as my witness, what I saw changed me to my cellular level. I felt my DNA being rewritten."


"We stopped trying to be an us that was really just a collection of scars spread out across the sheets we fucked upon."


"I’m complicated, but she read the owner’s manual."

*Coming Sept. 1 from Uncomfortably Dark Horror.
