From a man seeking vengeance for a dead loved one, to a monster lodged in a person’s nose, to starving vampires and samurai battling zombies, a bully meeting his gruesome demise, along with prostitutes being sacrificed, a boy who refuses to stop swearing, and the consequences of one man’s night of unprotected sex comes a dark and disturbing collection of sinister tales filled with dread, bloodshed, humor and the bizarre. This is a Mixed Bag of Blood.
Forward by Kristopher Rufty
Gathered within A Soundless Dawn are short stories that haunt, thrill, and grasp for the soul of humanity and challenge not only societal norms, but those that are to be expected of literature. Included are micro-short stories that further prove customs are meant to be tested to discover our own eccentricities. Whether neo-noir or transgressive, these stories are sure to enthrall.
“I don’t know that I’ve ever read a collection as wholly its own as this, nor a collection so absolutely unconnected to what’s been done before; in fact, it’s been a long, long time since I’ve had the privilege to immerse myself into a book more full of the human soul than this.” –Edward Lee, from the Introduction
“Extraordinary! Hauntingly poignant.” –Thomas Ligotti, author of My Work is Not Yet Done
You’re invited to experience ALL NIGHT TERROR. Don’t look for help, your weaker friends will be too scared to attend, but you’re in for the nightmare of your life. Sit down in front of the TV and prepare for a late-night odyssey of wicked shocks as a horror movie marathon becomes a bloodbath before your very eyes. It starts when a disgruntled cable host seizes control of a television station, determined to give his viewers an evening they won’t soon forget. One where monsters of all shapes and sizes rise up against mankind. One where deranged killers prowl the night for a variety of victims. And one where cinema itself haunts its creators and creations. Join modern horror stars Adam Cesare (Tribesmen, Zero Lives Remaining) and Matt Serafini (Feral, Island Red) as they bring you ten tales of fear that will have you shivering between the pages. All NIGHT TERROR—good to the last slash.
Within these pages you will find darkness and misery, but don’t be afraid. You’re not alone. There are companions with you in the darkness that will take your hand and lead you through the shadowy landscape.
• A preacher’s son that leads a photographer into more than just temptation
• A psychic desperate to prove her power at any cost
• A new mother who finds motherhood more than she bargained for
• A young woman who discovers the grisly consequences of honesty
• The survivors of a school shooting with their own sins to atone for
• An ex-reality star who finds it hard to adjust to life out of the spotlight
• A televangelist whose scam may just provide a miracle for a desperate housewife
These characters and many more will act as your guides over the rockery terrain. They will be your companions in ruin.
Late, dark nights are perfect for reading surreal and terrifying tales from some of the best story tellers in the horror business. Grit your teeth, sit by the fire pit, and be prepared to possibly not return from underneath the spell of their writing prowess, but if you do, we’re certain you’ll have a sinister smile to share. All these modern stories have an element of thought-provoking surprise and style.

Horrible Gods: The Little Book of Atheist Horror Stories
“The Evidential Argument From Evil against the existence of God was summed up quite succinctly two thousand years ago by the Greek philosopher Epicurus:
“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?”
In Horrible Gods, Wrath James White poses these questions again and adds yet another, “What would the world be like if God were real? How terrifying a place would it be if an all-powerful being as selfish, capricious, egotistical, and insecure as the one described in the bible were actually running things?” The result are stories that are both terrifying and depressing, hilarious, and disturbing, thought-provoking and infuriating.
From the story of a woman who has been told all her life that her sexuality was a “demon” inside of her that needed to be exorcised, to a man set on freeing mankind from the tyranny of a higher power that has manifested itself on earth, to the story of a computer program that allows the players to create their own worlds with intelligent life and a “freewill button” that gives the gamer the option to blame any mistakes on the beings they create, absolving the gamers of all guilt and responsibility, Wrath takes the question of God’s existence and benevolence for a ride in one gruesome tale after another.
Monsters are real. They lurk in the darkest places of this world, waiting to devour you, ready to tear into you. But the scariest monsters are the ones within you, driving you mad, feasting on you from the inside. They will eat you until there is nothing left, until the monster is all that remains. Until there is only sadness and insanity. And cruelty.
Fifteen tales from the mind of horror master Thomas Tessier.
With this collection of short stories, Matthew Weber delivers seven twisted tales from America’s Deep South. From flesh-hungry creatures that lurk in a lake to voodoo curses that change men into monsters, Seven Feet Under delivers spine-tingling suspense and bed-wetting horror.
“To Kill a Guy Twice” pits a vicious ghost against a young boy, his friend and his family.
“In the Hills, The Shadows” shows that your sins can catch up with you, even when you thought you’d gotten away with murder.
And a father will do whatever it takes to save his children from a city-smashing leviathan in “Daddy’s On the Way.”
Fast-paced, frightening and full of shocking twists and turns, this book will force you to stay up late, lock every door, and keep the lights on until the break of dawn.
There is an old myth that says if one dreams of falling and goes all the way to the sudden end, this one will never wake up. For writer Charlee Jacob that form of dream death never came. She’d strike rocks and get up again. However, in other nightmares she’s died almost every conceivable (and inconceivable) way, including being murdered. A child of relentless bullying, family violence, and stonings in the street…wife of starvation, psychological degredation, and abandonment, she put her fury and pain into writing. Her horrific fiction is extreme, often as lyrical as it is monstrous. Having written for nearly twenty years, illness completely disabled her. Later, a different diagnosis and maximum doses of her medications, she’s written her first book in eight years. ‘The Myth Of Falling’ is a collection of frequently gruesome fiction, cruelty, sexual deviance, and essays of living with horror. She’s fallen, hit bottom, and got up again.
