Terrifying Tuesday

A horror novella from one of the modern masters of contemporary horror fiction. Mark Edward Hall delivers a rich, dark and terrifying tale of a young man’s struggle to understand the horrific visions of murder that have plagued his life since childhood. What he discovers is a truth so shocking it threatens to destroy him.

A psychedelic coming-of-age story blending physics, romance and horror, set in a city on the verge of disaster.

In modern Philadelphia, where a deep economic depression has left the city near collapse and most of its inhabitants in gruesome poverty, Mitchell Gray, a twenty year old graduate student in a beleaguered university physics department, rarely communicates with faculty and colleagues, spending most of his time playing piano and touring the city’s worst slums in stolen cars. His parents are fugitives on the lam and one of the world’s most powerful billionaires is obsessed with the quiet young man and determined to capitalize on his strange inventions.

When Mitchell Gray falls in love with an older woman, the wife of a wealthy pharmaceutical executive, their relationship inspires him with a mad plan to change the world. With the help of a brilliant and neurotic chemistry student named Charlie Nolan and technology so advanced that it resembles magic, Mitchell devises horrifying yet harmless schemes and supernatural hoaxes, causing an uproar in the city.

His nights as a modern day robin hood also raise the alarm of some of the real monsters in Philadelphia, including a mysterious character from Mitchell's past known only as "The Demon." Christopher Rankin's debut novel is a haunting story of love, friendship and survival in a world of revolution.

Tony Smith is a successful horror writer, and his fans love his work, but beneath the facade of success, his personal life is in shambles.

Reeling from a recent divorce and haunted by the mistakes of his past, Tony attempts to start over in a new city, but things are not as they seem. His new residence, which had seemed perfect, is hiding a secret. Something wants Tony to suffer for his misdeeds. Something has been waiting for a man as broken as Tony Smith. Something wants his pain and suffering...something with an unending hunger. 

There is no such thing as a clean break.

This is a humorous story about the zombie invasion of Las Vegas.

Many things are lost in Las Vegas: innocence, paychecks, Little Scotty’s college fund. But the worst of all...is humanity. Once a man’s been bitten by lady luck, the hunger becomes infectious, and before he knows it he’ll chew the arm off the guy sitting next to him just to win a hand of poker. Especially if he’s a zombie.

Las Vegas has been overrun by flesh-eating, undead monsters that are now flooding the Strip and obliterating everything in their wake—cars, tourists, and even casinos. First on their path of destruction: the Olympus, Las Vegas’s premiere hotel and casino, which is currently housing a human buffet-line that’s been trapped inside by a poorly thought-out, self-locking alarm.
Amid the chaos of hungry zombies are a handful of survivors not yet food for the slow (but persistent) tourists-turned-undead: a guitar-wielding Elvis impersonator and his nostril-mining son, a feminist stripper, and an alcoholic janitor whose drunken hijinks might just be the only thing keeping him alive. Cornered inside an overflowing casino, the only place for this rag tag crew to go is out, but is there any place safe? Can they evade the soulless Bobby Darin impersonator who’s become unofficial king of the zombies? Have the zombies taken over every last casino in Vegas? Or were they always there to begin with?

Written by the co-authors of the popular web-comic A Beer for the Shower, and the novel The Missing Link.

Like George Orwell’s Animal Farm and 1984 Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, The Between Times is a social cautionary tale. Beautifully written, it’s a short book about a small girl trying to understand what she’s not allowed to know. For fifteen years, the prophecy spread by word of mouth. From mother to daughter, father to son, it spread. In the dark days of the United States of America, a girl will be born. She will have the power to make people fade from sight. Sound will disappear with a wave of her hand. She will have the power to control the between times, and during that time, the girl child will call to her all the spirits of the past, present, and future. They will come and join hands with her. Together they will become one power, one body, and that body shall control the magic of the between times. From that day forward, the darkness and despair will disappear from our country. The world will be made new, and all people will once again be equal under the eyes of the law. Kindness will return to our world. Men and women will no longer be the property of the rich.

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.

'A tragic tale of  a doomed romance like no other.'

Jason is a tormented soul and small town, womanizing  gangster. Fed up with his unfulfilled life he double crosses his only friend and does a runner with a suitcase full of drug money, disappearing into the heart of the gorgeous Scottish highlands to lay low in a secluded cottage before starting a fresh.

On his second day of hiding Jason discovers the mysterious body of a young and hauntingly beautiful woman lying unconscious at the bottom of a nearby hill. The woman though has no memory of who she is or how she even ended up there. So Jason carries the beauty back to his cottage and tenderly nurses her back to health. As the days pass, Jason gradually gains the woman's trust and friendship by confiding to her his own past sins and infidelities. Deep and personal confessions he has never told anyone before, especially a woman. Could our hero finally be falling in love for the first time in his selfish life?

Eventually Jason coaxes and pushes the woman into unraveling her own eerily forgotten past and tormenting mad nightmare visions of terror... But doing so without the hindsight of the chilling, terrifying and sickening acts of horror which are about to be unleashed.

'Strong language and graphic scenes of violence in parts.'
