Asylum Lake

Memories are like water. Some float on the surface bright and clear. Some lie deeper - blurred by time and distance. Others rest far from the light in the depths of the darkness. These memories are best forgotten. At the bottom of Asylum Lake the unremembered are growing restless.

After the sudden death of his wife, Brady Tanner moves to the small Michigan town where he spent summers as a youth. But he soon learns that small towns can be stained by memories...and secrets too. As Brady is drawn into unearthing the secrets of the town and of the abandoned psychiatric hospital on the shores of Asylum Lake, he discovers a new love in an old friend.

The Box (The Temple of the Blind #1)

Do you dare open your eyes? 

Far beneath the streets of Briar Hills lies an enormous temple of stone. Ancient secrets are buried within its walls…along with countless and unspeakable horrors. To look upon the things hidden there is to invite madness…but to journey forward blindly is to provoke death. Now the time draws near for the temple to fulfill its awesome purpose.

…and it all begins with a wooden box…

College student Albert Cross loves puzzles, so when a mysterious wooden box appears in the driver’s seat of his locked car with cryptic messages carved into it, it is no surprise that he quickly becomes obsessed. And when his lab partner, Brandy, unexpectedly turns up in possession of the box’s key, he finds himself with an opportunity to not only solve an exquisite mystery, but to do so with someone he very much wishes to impress.

But the secret of the box is far greater than either of them suspect. Soon, they uncover a map that leads them deep underground, into the city’s vast and complex subterranean system, where the miles upon miles of service tunnels and drainage pipes are long rumored to be haunted. 

Here, far below the streets, Albert and Brandy discover an ancient and very deadly labyrinth, hidden for ages deep beneath the earth. Together, they discover strange statues populating the darkness, shadowy creatures prowling the endless passages, and dangerous chambers where their most primal urges are violently turned against them. 

Their clothes lost in a moment of strange lust, they find themselves forced to navigate the unearthly stone corridors naked and vulnerable. Their only chance for survival lies within the odd assortment of objects found inside the box, from which Albert must somehow piece together a map.

Christmas Ghost Stories: Festive Skin Crawlers with a Twist

A remote Cornish village on Christmas Day battered by the howling seas. 

An old house that needs emptying on a Boxing Day.

A woman who spends Christmas by herself every year. 

Prepare to be scared out of your wits with this collection of Christmas Ghost stories from the macabre pen of Stewart King. 

While Christmas is a time of crackling fires and roasting turkeys, it can also be a time of dark nights, howling winds, creaks on the stairs, and strange noises from the cellar. 

And while it a time for re-unions and parties, for some people it is also a time of loneliness and memories. 

And it is not necessarily just the living members of the family that come back for the festive season. 

Written in the style of the traditional masters of the genre such as Charles Dickens and MR James, each story in this collection captures the essence of Christmas - except with a deadly sting in its tail. 

So if it cold outside and you’re safe and cosy indoors watching the snow fall outside, throw a log on the fire, pour yourself a glass of something warming and snatch a few shiveringly good moments with these festive spine-tinglers.

But don't forget to leave the light on.

Stewart King is the best-selling horror author of books such as 'Bloodbath on the Titanic' and 'The Arcona Covenant'.

Monster Vice

The time is tomorrow. A meteor storm has allowed monsters of every order to run free across the planet. Vampires, werewolves, ghosts, demons and other atrocities are the new bad guys on the block. To contend with this prevalent threat, various law enforcement agencies have created special divisions to deal with the monster epidemic. LAPD has created Monster Vice, and its senior cop is Dick Pitts -- a specialist in monster extermination. On a daily basis, Pitts stakes vampires, executes werewolves, and exorcises demons. When his partner is killed, he is assigned a new partner named Curadel -- who is in fact Dracula -- a greatly misunderstood Dracula through the ages and a Dracula who has become a cop to help humanity deal with the vampire plague. Now, Pitts and Dracula must team up and fight a Grand Master - the most powerful vampire in the world - who is hell bent on transforming every child in Los Angeles into a bloodsucking killing machine. Pitts and Dracula create a special platoon of 'fang warriors' -- their mission: to find the Grand Master and shut down his evil plans before the streets of LA are flooded in a sea of blood.

Deadside in Bug City

After a weaponized virus kills 40,000 of the city's inhabitants, 1,400 of them inexplicably become reanimated. The walking dead are interred in a crumbling ghetto while authorities go to court to determine if they should be destroyed.

The walking dead seem to be little more than mindless automatons until one of them spray paints an enigmatic message on a ghetto wall.

Troubleshooter Draven is sent inside to find her and bring her out. But going among the Rotties is fraught with danger, especially when his name is on the lips of the dead.

Deadside in Bug City is a short story of approximately 20 printed pages.

Also included is an excerpt of Randy Chandler's previously out-of-print and hard-to-find novel HELLz BELLz, now available on Kindle and Nook.

Shrouds of Darkness

Leo Malone is a vampire for hire to do just
about whatever you need done. Leo is hired by a young woman and her
brother to find her father, a werewolf and mob accountant, who has gone
missing and is suspected to be responsible for several killings
around Brooklyn. Leo soon finds there is far more going on than a
"simple" werewolf run amok problem. Leo's no nonsense, bullet diplomacy
approach to problem solving has him leaving no stone unturned and no
toes un-stepped on as he tries to unravel a conspiracy that threatens to
topple the enclave and reveal the existence of vampires.

If you like vampires with overly emotional teenaged angst, Leo is not your guy. If you like a wise-cracking, sword swinging, bullet spewing, hard-charging vampire, you don't want to miss out.
