Spine chilling Sunday

This edition of DRACULA by Bram Stoker features the original text, along with Stoker’s short story, “Dracula’s Guest,” beautifully designed and carefully proofed for the Kindle and including several detailed maps and historical illustrations.

Told in a series of first-person missives and reports, and set in 1890s Transylvania and England, DRACULA is the source of every vampire story told in the 20th century, the founding text of the entire genre. Count Dracula, as Jonathan Harker, Lucy Westenra, Mina Murray, and Dr. Von Helsing learn, is a dangerous and powerful creature who’s lived for hundreds of years and possesses powers no mortal can claim. Bent on creating legions of Un-Dead followers in populous London, Dracula must be stopped—but how?

Also includes a brief introduction and author bio.
Christopher Fulbright’s Tales of Terror, Vol. 6: THE UNEXPLAINED serves up six stories of cursed items, wonderful gifts, strange afflictions and stranger collections. A used book leads a chronically unemployed man down a twisted road of self-discovery; a woman seeks help for her son’s split personalities, one of which demonstrates a dreadful power; a man tied to his girlfriend in a psychic symbiosis seeks to rise above their wicked lifestyle, plus two more tales of supernatural hope and a final tale with a shocking twist complete this 20,000-word feast of frights.

DEATH INCEPTION is the prequel/companion novella to DEATH WHISPERS & The Death Series. (21K words/85 pages 1-2 hours reading time.) Although technically a prequel, this novella is also the ideal complement for reading between books 3 & 4 of the Death Series.
Kyle Ulysses Hart and his team of scientists mapped the human genome in the year 2010. As Brain Impulse Technology came online... so did the long arm of the United States government. A covert, military-driven regime was born with genetic manipulation the key to future widespread control.

A lone teenager named Jeffrey Parker, falls prey when he manifests the rare, Affinity for the Dead.The Graysheets abandon all pretense of stewardship, ripping him from his family for their nefarious purposes.

Can Jeffrey remain who he was destined to be in an environment exclusively built for mass control?

No one would ever forget the night the carnival came to town.
Vincent Carlson used to have a good life. He lived on a small farm in Doverton, Wisconsin, with his loving teenage daughter, Leanne. His biggest worries were tending his corn crop and being a good dad to Leanne. But that was before the seedy little carnival came to town, bringing with them the tiny humanoid creatures called “Haunchies”. For Vincent Carlson—and the whole town of Doverton—that was the night everything changed.

Two scary tales perfect for the season. Suitable for young adults or the kid that lives in all of us.

Two boys go trick-or-treating on Halloween night and are about to become 'treats' for a demented couple in Candy Coated Horror.

A ghost terrorizes a young girl when she moves into a new house, and threatens to posses her body in Ghost Twin.

The two stories total 8,000 words in length. Excerpts from Resurrection X: Zombie Evolution published by Post Mortem Press are included.


Tortured and mutilated, the witches of Salem went screaming to their deaths.

For almost three hundred years their souls writhed in exquisite agony, helpless to act.

Then the boy came. He was young, trusting... receptive to their boundless hatred; an empty vessel waiting to be filled with the burning poison of their revenge.

Like a plague rat, he carried their contagion from victim to victim, infecting minds, corrupting bodies, and condemning souls to everlasting torment.

Beware his luminous green eyes, for they radiate sickness and death, beware this foul...


(ABADDON was previously published in paperback as SALEM'S CHILD. It is set in modern day Salem and Danvers, MA, and is approximately 81,000 words long.)

A terrifying and chilling novel from the author of RIG: A Novel of Terror, Gone and After the Snowfall


Warren Hollis is a seasoned true crime writer. He likes to submerge himself in the local culture when he writes, so he packs his essentials and heads to Knorr, Pennsylvania. It's a tiny town in western PA, the kind of town most people on their way to Pittsburgh or New York would drive right past. It's a town full of friendly, smiling people, but it hides a dark past.

Years ago a man began sneaking into the bedrooms of young girls and taking them under the cover of night. Days later, a grisly calling card would be left for the families to find. He became known as "The Boogeyman" and the rural town of Knorr, and the surrounding communities, have done all they can to forget those terrible days when no one was safe, not even when nestled into their own beds.

Warren arrives and starts asking questions. He stays in a small cabin just outside of town. It's a nice place, exactly what he's looking for. There's just one strange thing: a big, heavy black phone at the top of the stairs. It's not connected to anything. The phone is just a decorative hold-over from the party line days. Something about it disturbs Warren, the way something about Knorr disturbs him, as well. Someone is hiding something about "The Boogeyman."

Then the killing starts again.

And, in the middle of the night, a phone that should never be able to ring - begins to do just that...

In the midst of this sudden explosion of zombies craving for live human flesh, A few locals manage to stay alive long enough to discover that the estate has been cut off from the outside world by gun toting soldiers.

Can they avoid their recently dead friends, family and neighbours from trying to consume them to find an alternative way out of the estate?

Praise for The Unwashed Dead

For me, five stars aren't enough. Why? Becuase Woodhead's tale makes the kind of social commentary that made Romero king. Highly recommended - Dave Jeffery. Author of Necropolis Rising.

He creates a very subtle aura of dread and menace that explodes across the page when the zombie carnage hits full throttle – Chip Fehd –

Tightly written and fast paced, this creepy read is filled with wit, humor and tension – Christopher Beck. Author of Lonesome Night

This is good-value, home-grown zombie fiction - something fans have been screaming out for – Sean T Page. Author of The Official Zombie handbook (UK)

This story is the first book in the Zombie Armageddon series and continues with Walking with Zombies.

Vampires are assholes. They're not sparkly, reticent killers yearning for true love.  They aren't gothic romantics who read poetry.  They aren't even mysterious Romanians who turn into bats and terrorize the countryside.  Really, they're just douche bags. - Room Service
Thus begins "Room Service," a dark comedy about a loser named Robbie who lives with his mom and dates a stripper. One night his girlfriend  does a "private" with a suspiciously pasty customer and is never heard from again.  As soon as Robbie figures out his girl was served up as a vampire Slurpee, he's out to exact revenge.  Not that he has any clue how do it.  But when you have nothing to lose and a bloodsucking freak to get even with, you don't mind improvising

Revenants, a vampiric race of post-mortals, maneuver for power in the world of plastic surgery, internet conspiracy theories, and information-stifling media conglomerates.

Kate must uncover her past and tease apart clues to her companions' urgent mission so she can take a stand before it's too late to act.

The facts behind the fiction
In 2001 scientists isolated the gene for regenerating damaged organs from the DNA of a
South American flatworm. Within five years it had been spliced into the chromosomes
of a rhesus monkey, transported through the cell walls by a retro-virus denuded of its own genetic material.

Attempting to regrow impaired or elderly tissues, a scientist will one day modify the DNA
of human beings by injecting the gene-carrying virus. It is just a matter of time.

Before consenting to treatment, you may want to ask a simple question: could there be
a situation in which you would want to die but were unable to do so?

A crime-thriller with an injection of horror
Journalist Hendrix 'Aitch' Harrison links bodies stolen from a renowned forensic-research
lab to an influential drug company.

Aided by Sarah Wallace, a determined and beguiling entomologist, he delves into a 
grisly world of clinical trials and a viral treatment beyond imagining.

But Aitch must battle more than his fear of technology to expose the macabre
fate of the drugged victims donated to scientific research

A group of locals struggle to save their home after a genetically altered creeper vine invades a small desert town.

Doc Fletcher, an eccentric biologist in the remote Mojave Desert, has finally created the ultimate drought-tolerant plant: a genetically engineered creeper vine. It's destined to change the world, but not according to Doc's plans. Instead, this vine has a mind of its own. Mayhem ensues as the residents of Furnace Valley (pop. 16), along with campers at the nearby hot springs, run for their lives - led by wannabe date rancher Sam Rainsford and the nerdy yet gorgeous botanist Laura Beecham, who has come to the desert for a reunion with the father she has never known...

Sixteen-year-old Riley Williams has been able to see ghosts since the car crash that took her mother's life and shattered her family. Guilt-ridden over the belief that she's somehow responsible for her mom's death, Riley is desperate to see her mother's elusive spirit to gain her forgiveness.

When her father moves the family to Scotland so they can all start over, Riley believes her life couldn't get worse--that is until the ghost of nineteen-year-old Ian MacKinnon catches her purposely cutting herself. An uneasy truce quickly turns into friendship, and soon Riley's falling hard for Ian.

Riley believes her gift could help Ian end the curse that has kept him tied to the land for centuries, but that would mean letting him go forever and she's not sure she is strong enough to do that. As if her life wasn't complicated enough, the malevolent spirit of the woman who killed Ian returns and she'll stop at nothing to keep Riley from helping Ian find eternal peace.


Nobody can really explain it. You just have to understand that bizarre things happen there. They just do. Weird things. The kind of things you don’t even want to dream about in your worst nightmares.
