INTIMATIONS OF DEATH, Felix Timmermans

A boy’s mother lies upstairs seriously ill, and in every crash of thunder or hollow chime of the clock he seems to hear a portent of her death.—A scholar of the occult finds his marriage threatened by horrifying and otherworldly noises emanating from the cellar.—During a plague outbreak, a gravedigger accidentally prepares one too many graves and becomes obsessed with the thought that the final grave will be his own.—A haunted man, seeking refuge in a monastery, is convinced that Death itself stalks him in the building’s lonely halls.—When a suicide pact goes awry, a man believes the ghost of his vengeful lover has returned to destroy him.

These are the plots of the five tales in Intimations of Death (1910), available at last in English for the first time. Belgian author Felix Timmermans (1886-1947) was highly popular in his lifetime for his humorous tales of rural life, but in this early collection, written after a near-death experience with a serious illness, Timmermans reveals a more morbid side and delivers a collection of psychological horror tales worthy of Edgar Allan Poe. This edition, brilliantly translated by award-winning translator Paul Vincent, includes the macabre woodcut illustrations from the original Dutch edition and an introduction by John Howard.

SARAH KILLIAN 2: The Mullets of Madness, by Mark Sheldon

Have you ever woken one morning with a burning, insatiable desire to go out and kill someone?

After receiving an ominous warning from a mark-gone-wrong, it becomes clear that Nick Jin—Sarah’s former nemesis—is still at large and singling her out.

Sarah and Mary Sue are dispatched to Tennessee to discreetly kill off an accused family of KKK organizers, but their true mission is to lure Nick Jin into a trap. But will Nick—always several steps ahead of T.H.E.M.—see their bait for what it is? One thing is guaranteed: blood will be shed.

In the spirit of Sidney Sheldon, Dean Koontz, and Joss Whedon,The Mullets of Madness is a truly unique blend of horror, suspense and espionage.

THE REVENANTS, Mary Hallberg

They came for ghosts, but found something much more evil.

It’s the summer after graduation, and eighteen-year-old Will wants one last blast with his friends. When they convince him to sneak onto the grounds of an abandoned and (allegedly) haunted chemical plant, he thinks the worst they’ll find is a few rusty nails. But when the sun sets, something else emerges from the nearby cemetery. Corpses brought to life by the chemical spill that shut the plant down set out to consume the living, regenerating — and getting stronger — with each kill. Now, trapped within the thick woods surrounding the plant, Will and his friends must escape the living dead…or become part of them.

The Revenants is a novella from STATE OF EMERGENCY author Mary Hallberg that fans of zombies and supernatural horror alike will enjoy.

WILDER GIRLS, by Rory Power

“Celebrates the resilience of girls and the earthshaking power of their friendships. An eerie, unforgettable triumph.” –Claire Legrand, New York Times bestselling author of Furyborn

Wilder Girls is so sharp and packs so much emotion in such wise ways. I’m convinced we’re about to witness the emergence of a major new literary star.” –Jeff VanderMeer, New York Times bestselling author of Annihilation

A feminist Lord of the Flies about three best friends living in quarantine at their island boarding school, and the lengths they go to uncover the truth of their confinement when one disappears. This fresh, new debut is a mind-bending novel unlike anything you’ve read before.

It’s been eighteen months since the Raxter School for Girls was put under quarantine. Since the Tox hit and pulled Hetty’s life out from under her.

It started slow. First the teachers died one by one. Then it began to infect the students, turning their bodies strange and foreign. Now, cut off from the rest of the world andAleft to fend for themselves on their island home, the girls don’t dare wander outside the school’s fence, where the Tox has made the woods wild and dangerous. They wait for the cure they were promised as the Tox seeps into everything.

But when Byatt goes missing, Hetty will do anything to find her, even if it means breaking quarantine and braving the horrors that lie beyond the fence. And when she does, Hetty learns that there’s more to their story, to their life at Raxter, than she could have ever thought true.

THE NEED, by Helen Phillips

When Molly, home alone with her two young children, hears footsteps in the living room, she tries to convince herself it’s the sleep deprivation. She’s been hearing things these days. Startling at loud noises. Imagining the worst-case scenario. It’s what mothers do, she knows.

But then the footsteps come again, and she catches a glimpse of movement.

Suddenly Molly finds herself face-to-face with an intruder who knows far too much about her and her family. As she attempts to protect those she loves most, Molly must also acknowledge her own frailty. Molly slips down an existential rabbit hole where she must confront the dualities of motherhood: the ecstasy and the dread; the languor and the ferocity; the banality and the transcendence as the book hurtles toward a mind-bending conclusion.

In The Need, Helen Phillips has created a subversive, speculative thriller that comes to life through blazing, arresting prose and gorgeous, haunting imagery. Helen Phillips has been anointed as one of the most exciting fiction writers working today, and The Need is a glorious celebration of the bizarre and beautiful nature of our everyday lives.

Scary books make everything so much better! I've been reading them since I was a wee, weird little thing and grew up with a steady diet of King, Koontz, Barker, and Brite and will read and watch just about anything with a hint of darkness.
