BEYOND THE GATE (Kathy Ryan #4), by Mary SanGiovanni
Kathy Ryan’s work as an occult investigator often leads her to the outskirts of society, law, and even reality…
Knowing that other dimensions exist is one thing. Venturing into them is quite another. In the course of its experiments, Paragon Corp—a government-sourced theoretical physics research institute—has discovered a supposedly empty alternate world. There is strange, alien flora but seemingly no sentient beings…just a huge, abandoned city that a team of scientists is sent to explore.
Then the scientists disappear. Kathy Ryan is hired to make her first foray into an alternate dimension in order to locate the team, bring them back, and close the gate for good. Instead, she discovers that this supposedly dead city may be nothing of the kind. Her rescue mission has become a terrifying race to prevent the potential destruction of the boundary between two worlds—before mayhem reigns over both…
HOLLOW HEART: A Horror Novella, by Ben Eads
Welcome to Shady Hills, Florida, where death is the beginning and pain is the only true Art…
Harold Stoe was a proud Marine until an insurgent’s bullet relegated him to a wheelchair. Now the only things he’s proud of are quitting alcohol and raising his sixteen-year-old son, Dale.
But there is an infernal rhythm, beating like a diseased heart from the hollow behind his home. An aberration known as The Architect has finished his masterpiece: A god which slumbers beneath the hollow, hell-bent on changing the world into its own image.
As the body count rises and the neighborhood residents change into mindless, shambling horrors, Harold and his former lover, Mary, begin their harrowing journey into the world within the hollow. If they fail, the hollow will expand to infinity. Every living being will be stripped of flesh and muscle, their nerves wrapped tightly around ribcages, so The Architect can play his sick music through them loud enough to swallow what gives them life: The last vestiges of a dying star.
Scheduled to Release December 3, 2019

Angie Everstein, America’s newest pop queen, is sweeping the nation with her number one single “Forever with You.” When a string of murders and strange occurrences plague the country, police officer Mike Mallory believes Angie is somehow connected.

BEAST ON THE TRACKS, by Amy Cross
They say the railroad in Sobolton was abandoned years ago. They say trains no longer run through the town. They’re wrong.
When Richard and Milly meet late one night at a party, they’re each hiding a deadly secret. As the stars above Sobolton burn brighter than ever, the forces of fate seem determined to push the pair together. Or is the beast on the tracks simply reaching out and trying to draw them closer?
Soon, Milly and Richard discover the horrifying truth about the beast, and about its endless hunger for blood. Trapped in the clutches of a powerful evil, they search for a way out. But will their escape require them to make the ultimate sacrifice? And what dark force lurks in the heart of the beast itself?
The Beast on the Tracks is a horror novel about two people who have done terrible things, about an evil force that reaches from coast to coast, and about the possibility of redemption.
THE ABYSSAL PLAIN: The R’lyeh Cycle, edited by William Holloway and Brett J. Talley
With The Abyssal Plain, Holloway and Talley have managed to transform the Cthulhu Mythos into something with a more modern flavor, drawing not just from the well of cosmic horror, but from technothrillers, survival horror, and splatterpunk, with just a dash of the lost sensibilities of the shudder pulps. A cup full of tentacles mixed with existential nihilism and sprinkled with liberal quantities of gore, this is Lovecraftian horror with a bloody bent that few others have dared to explore. –Peter Rawlik, author of Reanimators
They called it the Event.
The Event changed everything. The earthquakes came first, including the Big One, shattering the Pacific Rim and plunging the world into chaos. Then the seas came, the skies opened, and the never-ending rain began. But as bad as that was, there is something worse.
The Rising has begun.
A lone man who abandoned the world for his addictions searches a waterlogged Austin for something, anything to cling to. Little does he know that something else searches for him.
In the Sonoran Desert, the downtrodden of the world search for a better life north of the border, only to see the desert become an ocean: an ocean that takes life and gives death.
In the woods of Alabama, survivors escape to Fort Resistance, but soon discover that it isn’t just the horrors of the deep places of the world that they need to fear; but rather a new and more deadly pestilence that has grown in their own ranks.
In England, it’s too late to fight, and all that’s left is to survive. One man reaches for his own humanity, but what to do when humanity is an endangered species?
And in the Pacific, He is rising.
