Some things are older than time. Older than darkness.

-Levi is a monstrous man—made of scars and scary as hell, he’s glutted on ghosts and evolving to carry out the dark wishes of the ancient whispers in his head. He’s building a door and what’s on the other side is terrifying.

-Jones spent a lot of time living bottle to bottle and trying to erase things. Now he’s looking for the man who killed his mother and maybe a little bit of looking or himself as well.

-Keaton is on the run from accusations as well as himself, he suffers alone until he meets Jubal, an orphaned boy with his little sisters in a sling.

-Every line is not a straight line and everything must converge. A parable writ in dust and blood on warped barn wood. A journey in the classic sense, populated with dried husks of towns…and people both odd and anything but ordinary. Hornets, reverse-werewolves and one of the most vicious villains you’ll ever know are all part of it.

Pull on your boots and saddle up, we’ll Walk The Darkness Down.

Three businessmen have discovered a unique avenue to fame and fortune, but when an unseen force begins to kill them off, Holmes and Watson must uncover the secret of the sarcophagus they have brought out of Persia.

IN DARKNESS, DELIGHT: Creatures of the Night, edited by Andrew Lennon & Evans Light

Open these pages and unleash all-new terrors that consume from without and within.

The creatures are here. It’s now time to find . . . In Darkness, Delight.

People, older people, told me I would be somebody, but that transformation never happened. I never became. I am permanently stuck in the process of becoming. A chrysalid cracking on a loop. A river that shimmers but doesn’t flow. I am a pen, continually rolling off a table.

A transgressive and grotesque portrait of two psychopaths falling in love. One’s a demon worshipping chef, the other is a regular 18 year-old woman with a taste for violence. 

Together, they may just set the sleepy town of Majestic Beach on fire..or destroy themselves in the process.

PETRA’S GHOST, by C.S. O’Cinneide

A man’s pilgrimage becomes something from his darkest nightmares when secrets arise and ghosts haunt his path.

A woman has vanished on the Camino de Santiago, the ancient five-hundred-mile pilgrimage that crosses northern Spain. Daniel, an Irish expat, walks the lonely trail carrying his wife, Petra’s, ashes, along with the damning secret of how she really died.

When he teams up to walk with vibrant California girl Ginny, she seems like the perfect antidote for his grieving heart. But a nightmare figure begins to stalk them, and Daniel’s mind starts to unravel from the horror of things he cannot explain. 

Unexpected twists and turns echo the path of the ancient trail they walk upon. The lines begin to blur between reality and madness, between truth and the lies we tell ourselves.

BLOODY WALLS: A Collection from a Fractured Mind, by Thomas Scopel

Inside you will find…Explanations for the wooden stake, the silver bullet and the true tales of Pinnochio, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White; tarnished holidays marred by a treacherous elf, a demented Easter Bunny and a pumpkin patch that takes more than it gives; a sidewalk that ends, itchy palms not from nerves, a terrible but forced choice being made and a serial killer wannabe.From the dark mind of Thomas Scopel comes Bloody Walls, a completely rewritten collection of reprints that includes tales, flashes, essays and the complete Interview with a Monster series. Turn down the lights, ignore the settling creaks and snuggle tight, for Bloody Walls – A Collection From A Fractured Mind is about to take you on a lurid ride of cringe and chuckle, on occasion at the same time.
