From the 10th through the 21st you can get Benjamin Kane Ethridge’s Bram Stoker Award-Winning novel BLACK & ORANGE for only .99 – Forget everything you know about Halloween. The stories are distortions. They were created to keep the Church of Midnight hidden from the world. Every October 31st a gateway opens to a hostile land of sacrificial magic and chaos. Since the beginning of civilization the Church of Midnight has attempted to open the gateway and unite with its other half, the Church of Morning. Each year they’ve come closer, waiting for the ideal sacrifice to open the gateway permanently. This year that sacrifice has come. And only two can protect it. Martin and Teresa are the nomads, battle-hardened people who lack identity and are forever road-bound on an endless mission to guard the sacrifice. Their only direction is from notes left from a mysterious person called the Messenger. Endowed with a strange telekinetic power, the nomads will use everything at their disposal to make it through the night alive. But matters have become even more complicated this year. Teresa has quickly lost ground battling cancer, while Martin has spiraled into a panic over being left alone. His mind may no longer be on the fight when it matters most… because ever on their heels is the insidious physical representation of a united church: Chaplain Cloth.

From the 21st through the 30th you can get Joe R. Lansdale’s BUMPER CROP for only .99 – This collection of 26 stories contains some of Joe R Lansdale’s favourite and most violent dark horror tales. ‘God of the Razor’ introduces the dark god behind serial killers. A martial arts fight to the death between a reluctant champion and a sadistic alpha male, is featured in ‘Master of Misery’. Human sacrifice, to ensure prosperity or as a coming-of-age ritual, are themes of ‘On a Dark October’ and ‘Duck Hunt’. In ‘The Fat Man’, young boys learn the hard way that some mysteries should not be investigated. Many of the tales are truly weird, such as ‘Chompers’, the story of the false teeth with an appetite. All stories are individually introduced by Lansdale, who explains the humorous, weird, and sometimes sad genesis for each.

INFLICTIONS – New Collection from John McIlveen

INFLICTIONS – New Collection from John McIlveen

PULL NO PUNCHES

An Introduction

By Christopher Golden

Compared to John McIlveen, I’m a lightweight.  Over the years I’ve written my share of gruesome scenes, not to mention my share of scenes in which I set out to inflict emotional pain on both characters and readers.  The darkness awaits us all, and I never flinch from pointing out the doorway that leads into it.  Sometimes I’ll open the door and show you what lies beyond.  Occasionally I’ll step over the threshold and take a few tentative steps beyond, shine a light into the worst of it just to let you know how bad it can get.  After that, I retreat as quickly as I came, but I don’t do that just for me.  It’s not purely out of cowardice.  I retreat because I know that’s what most of you want me to do.  It’s the best thing for us all.

John McIlveen never retreats.  I won’t say he lives in the darkness.  Anyone who has met him will realize that’s impossible, that a man as kind and aw-shucks genial as John McIlveen can’t possibly live in the darkness.

But he does rent a little apartment there.

Just a cute little two bedroom place, a fourth floor walkup with hot and cold running sorrow and a lovely view of the fiery rivers of Hell.  He likes it there.  It’s his getaway from the world, a quiet place where he can forget about his troubles and ruminate on the ugliness so many of us encounter—or carry beneath our skins—every day.  John’s not afraid, you see.  He pulls no punches.  He doesn’t turn his back on the horrors that spring from humanity, he forges mirrors and holds them up, forcing us to look.

The bastard.

You need go no further than my favorite story in this collection, the vengeance tale “Paint it Black,” or the apocalyptic “Desolation” to understand what I mean.  The author is never afraid to gaze into the abyss.  It may gaze back, but John is unflinching.  In all of those horrific news stories, reporters interview neighbors who say “He seemed like such a nice man.”  If any of John’s neighbors dare to read this collection, they will most certainly be saying the same thing.  He seems like such a nice man.

He is, my darlings.  That’s why it’s called fiction.

He’s also got a wicked sense of humor, but we’ll get to that in a moment.

Back to the pain.  “Infliction” is an brutal tale about dark secrets, a theme which recurs throughout this collection.  “Roundabout” is a haunting story that puts the telescope onto the worst sins of the father, and “Portraits” is a close cousin.  The darkness in these stories bleeds over into the twisted sexuality of “Succumb” and “Make a Choice,” the latter of which also blurs the lines between horror and humor.

“Jerks” is full of humor and horror, tragedy and comedy.  “Playing the Huddys” and “Saddled Vengeance” are just all kinds of wrong.  They say that comedy is seeing someone slip on a banana peel and tragedy is when it happens to you.  “The Bore” walks on the razor edge between them quite artfully, making you laugh even as it fills you with a sense of real sadness.  It’s one of the most sorrowful stories I’ve ever read.

I’d not intended this introduction to tick off the stories one by one, but the urge to do so is almost overwhelming, because what makes John McIlveen a terrific writer is not just his skill as a storyteller but his range.  “A Mother’s Love” and “Smokey” and “Nina” all have themes of abuse, of broken people and a culpability that echoes through their lives.  There is love and humanity underlying the horror of these stories.  But in these pages you’ll also find masterfully clever short shorts like “Simon Says,” the beautiful sweetness of “Hope,” the perfectly executed be-careful-what-you-wish-for warning of “Finding Forever.”

Some of these stories will make you laugh and some will hurt you, possibly at the same time.  Little parts of you, tender bits deep inside, may be broken.  But they’ll heal.  If you need any help healing them, save the heartfelt and lovely “Devotion” for last.  I won’t say it isn’t a sad story—it’s about love and family and a plane crash—but somehow McIlveen makes it all okay.

Which makes me wonder if that isn’t what he’s been doing all along as he’s written these stories for magazines and anthologies over the years.  He may hold up the mirror to show us the darkest, ugliest parts of humanity and ourselves—and sometimes it can be so hard to look into that mirror—but maybe it’s that he knows someone has to do it.  Someone has to have the courage not to look away so we never forget how vicious the darkness can be…but also so that we know that even when things are at their darkest, we’re not alone.

It’s all going to be okay.  Trust me.

Trust John McIlveen.

He won’t protect you.  Not really.  But he’ll pick you up when you fall and he’ll put you back together again if you break.

The best writers always do.

Crossroad Press – New Titles for February!

February has been a busy month for us so far.  Check out the new books below.  You can find all new titles at Crossroad Press / Amazon.com / Barnes & Noble.com – I’ve listed these links here, rather than linking every title separately.

Miraculous Journey – by Anne & Whitley Strieber

Since she had a brain hemorrhage in 2004, Anne Strieber, the wife of famed writer Whitley Strieber, has lived a life of miracles, and in this book Anne and Whitley share their stories of her near death experience, her miraculous recovery and the life of miracles that has followed. Now, Anne faces an even greater challenge, a brain tumor. Excellent care and a holistic, joyous approach to the challenge has given her a real chance against what is usually a devastating disease. The Striebers, who have been happily married for 42 years, bring the wisdom and the love of their long marriage to their new challenge, and find that, in adversity like this, it is possible to find the true miracle of why we live our lives in the first place. Life is the miraculous journey, death at once an end and a joyous new beginning. For anyone facing serious illness, or just wondering how to cope when they enter this inevitable stage of life, the Miraculous Journey offers wisdom and support, and for those dealing with strokes and brain tumors, it is full of treatment insights, valuable knowledge and comfort.

Transformation – By Whitley Strieber

The author of Communion has seen a new vision of this magnificent, mysterious, and fiercely alive universe through the shattering effects of an assault from the unknown. The visitors are sweeping up from where they are buried under layers of denial and false assurance to say: There is something more to us and our universe.

Breakthrough by Whitley Strieber

In his worldwide bestseller Communion, Whitley Strieber told of his remarkable encounters with alien beings, and convinced millions of us that we are not alone. But that was just the beginning of his incredible true-life odyssey.

Since then Strieber has been led by the visitors on an astounding journey of revelation, and with their inspiration, has discovered a passageway to profound personal insight. He has seen them enter the lives of others and witnessed the extraordinary effects of their presence. And he has received their vast wisdom about the wonder of life and the rich, almost totally unexplored experience we call death.

Powerfully moving and stunning in its implications, Breakthrough gives us a truly illuminating look at these mysterious, yet prescient, agents of change and reveals their inspiring message of hope for our chaotic and troubled world.

The Secret of Orenda – By Whitley Strieber

Orenda: Feel the Magic

Deep in the forest there lives the world’s greatest and most beautiful secret. Known only to a few initiates, the people of Orenda continue the ancient ways of magic from mankind’s lost past. But even the wildest places are under threat, and this ancient tribe, who know nothing of the modern world, are discovered—and become a sensation.

Must their magic die, absorbed in the hectic modern world? Lawyer Mary Russell says no. Chief Charles Hay says no. Worldwalker Jim Hyam says no.

But the world says yes. And the world comes, in planes, in SUVs, in off-road vehicles, with cameras, forms to fill out, laws to follow and guns to make sure.

Who will win? Feel the magic.

N.D.E. (Near Death Experience) The Lazarus Initiative – By Steven Savile and David Sakmyster

From Steven Savile, International best-selling author of SILVER and the JACK STONE THRILLERS, and David Sakmystery, award-winning screenwriter and author of THE PHAROS OBJECTIVE and CRESCENT LAKE, a new, page-turning, supernatural thriller.

After a Near Death Experience (an ‘NDE’) radically transforms the life of
eccentric billionaire Nicholas Sheridan, he becomes obsessed with understanding the experience, recreating the conditions that opened the gate to the unknown.

After recruiting others with similar experiences, they discover amazing connections, common visions and dramatic abilities among people who have come back from the dead. But what they haven’t bargained for is that the gate opens both ways. Something has escaped from death and is hunting them. Something hungry…

“With NDE, Sakmyster and Savile trek across a dark line into very strange country. Equal parts smart and chilling, this is a powerful and important novel.” –Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of EXTINCTION MACHINE and FIRE & ASH

“A wild and gripping ride through the afterlife, virtual realities, real world horrors and everything in between, NDE reminded me of Neil Gaimain’s American Gods wrung through The Matrix.” –Stel Pavlou, author of DECIPHER and GENE

 The Dawning by Hugh B. Cave

In the all-too-immediate future, the day has finally come when crime, drugs, and pollution have made the cities of the world virtually uninhabitable. Gangs roam the streets at will, the police have nearly surrendered, and the air and water are slowly killing the residents who remain. But one small group of survivors has decided to escape the madness. Packing what they can carry, they head off to what they hope will be the unspoiled wilderness of northern Canada, intent on making a new start, a new life. But nature isn’t that forgiving. For far too long mankind has destroyed the planet, ravaging the landscape and slaughtering the animals. At long last, nature has had enough. Now the Earth is ready to fight back, to rid itself of its abusers. A new day has come. But will anyone survive…

Disciples of Dread by Hugh B. Cave

The lush island of Jamaica is a wonderful vacation spot — but Mark Donner’s not on vacation. He’s running for his life from the Disciples of Dread, an international terrorist organization whose leader wants to use Mark to trap his psychically gifted twin brother, Vincent, an American espionage agent.

Concealed on Jamaica, Mark should be safe but the island holds dangers he cannot imagine. Somehow Mark has attracted an enemy far more deadly than the terrorists. Obeah magic — dark, evil magic — is used against him in supernatural attacks that grow ever stronger.

Running out of time, stalked by human killers and things unknown, Mark Donner must tap his hidden psychic talents to save himself — and the woman he loves.

Curtains of Blood by Robert Randisi

London, 1888. A knife flashes in the fog. A madman has begun the most notorious and shocking series of murders in history. With each new discovery of a woman’s mutilated body, the citywide panic grows. The police seem unable to stop the killer, even when he taunts them with letters. Letters signed…Jack the Ripper.

In another part of London, the reign of terror has touched a young writer and theater manager named Bram Stoker. The police have closed his theater’s production of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and suspect its star of being Jack the Ripper. His livelihood endangered, Stoker sets out on his own to find the real killer. But Jack wants just as badly to find Stoker. When the madman and the author meet face to face, a new chapter will be written in the annals of horror.

The Black Mariah by Jay Bonansinga

Tearing through the Tennessee night with their gasoline tank near empty, two hardened truck drivers are pursued by an immortal curse that announces itself on their CB radio and threatens to strike furiously if they stop their wheels.

Murder Most Fowl – A Dan Rhodes Mystery by Bill Crider

Following Booked for a Hanging, Anthony Award-winner Bill Crider brings back his amiable, computer-phobic sheriff Dan Rhodes to investigate a murder that may or may not be related to a recent wave of emu-rustling. For an officer of the law, Blacklin County, Texas, used to be pretty peaceful, but now, what with the emu-rustling, cockfights, and protests at the new Wal-Mart store — not to mention murder — Sheriff Dan Rhodes has his hands full. Hit hard by the collapse of his little hardware store, Elijah (“Lige”) Ward has taken to chaining himself to the Wal-Mart doors and generally making a nuisance of himself. And when Lige’s dead body turns up, floating down a river in a portable toilet, Rhodes finds he has quite a case to investigate. What was the connection between Lige and chickens? Lige and the Palm Club? And was he involved in the area’s emu thefts? It seems that raising emus (“taste like steak, not chicken”) is a booming business, so much so that emu (“calmer than ostriches and more resistant to disease”) are being stolen left, right, and center by would-be emu ranchers with little respect for the law. From theft to murder, the local crime spree seems unstoppable. But with a little help from the computer foisted on him by aging deputies Hack and Lawton, plus some good old-fashioned detective work, Rhodes just may be able to straighten out his county.

Winning Can be Murder – A Dan Rhodes Mystery by Bill Crider

It’s been a while since Sheriff Dan Rhodes’s football days, but things haven’t really changed, at least not with state playoffs coming up and excitement for the local high school team heating up to a fever pitch. But then coach Brady Meredith is found shot to death in his car, and his murder leads to troublesome rumors concerning illegal betting, black market steroids and the sheriff’s old nemesis, a biker named Rapper, who has reappeared in Blacklin County. Too many coincidences for Rhodes’s comfort. Especially when another corpse makes it a second down for a killer determined to lead Sheriff Rhodes into a game of sudden death.

A Stabbing for Sadie by Wednesday Lee Friday

A sometimes terrifying, often intriguing, and always thought-provoking glimpse into the mind of Sadie, a victim of child abuse, drugs, and the vagaries of fate as she sinks into mental illness and battles her own special kind of demons. A Stabbing for Sadie is a wonderful journey through the twisted mind of a casualty of abuse, who lives with her own monsters, and fights to survive every day. It delves into notions and nightmares that haunt this strong and sometimes funny woman as she copes with false accusations and true horrors. This is a riveting, edge-of-your-seat thriller as told from the other side. A Stabbing for Sadie will leave you breathless, wondering what you would do, and wondering what’s on the mind of the person standing next to you…

Skull County, U.S.A. by Charles Colley

SKULL COUNTY, USA tells the story of a U.S. President, about fifteen years from today, chased by killers, running for his life in a blizzard, across Grand Mesa in western Colorado, the biggest flat-topped volcanic mountain in the world.

In only two days, at 5 PM on Monday, Congress will vote, per his demand, to kill all trade with China, ending, he hopes, the ten year Depression that is an outgrowth of the political and economic woes that we face today.

As bullets fly, as the snow begins to rage, a former Army nurse, still healing from the Afghanistan War, leads her band of lady elk hunters on their version of “girls night out” Colorado style, into a complex plot involving Chinese and American gunmen, $10 million in cash and the fate of America’s and the world’s economic survival, as they save the President, rushing toward safety and that monumental Monday vote.

The Crusade Against Darkness by John Defilippis

This third volume of the epic fantasy series, “The Medallion of Mavinor,” picks up where “The Birth of Malgyron” left off. Now that Cidivus has come to rule and the Age of Darkness has officially begun, everything is going perfectly according to plan for the Evil One. For even as a rival kingdom falls to the evil that has arisen, conditions in Mavinor quickly deteriorate under the new regime. The few heroes who managed to survive the onset of darkness are forced to come together and somehow figure out how they can restore light to the world. But the more they learn, the more they realize it may already be too late. All seems lost when one of their best men abandons the cause, but as other unlikely heroes begin to emerge and dissension grows among the ranks of evil, a ray of hope begins to shine in the darkness. When the forces of good finally mobilize in an attempt to reclaim Mavinor, they realize that they cannot afford to fail in their crusade or the world as they once knew it will be gone forever.

Hostile Takeovers By Michael A. Black

Something’s happening in the underworld of Cook County. Tensions are rising between two rival drug lords, and the streets are their battleground. Sergeant Frank Leal and his former partner, Olivia “Ollie” Hart, get involved when one of their informants turns up dead with his ear cut off. When one drug lord decides its time to eliminate the competition completely, the takeover becomes very hostile indeed. As blood flows in the gutter and retaliation rules the day, Leal and Hart have to stop two criminal armies before they meet in an all-out war with the innocents caught in between.

Mama Fish by Rio Youers

Technology is a 21st Century god. It’s a monster.

And the old ghosts stir…

Business brings Patrick Beauchamp to Harlequin, MA. The town he grew up in. It is his first time back for twenty years. Harlequin has changed, but even so … the old ghosts stir.

The secret—such a terrible secret—still lives in his heart. It is here, in Harlequin. She is here.

Patrick will never forget Mama Fish.

Harlequin High, 1986. Kelvin Fish was the oddball, the weird kid that no one would talk to. Except for Patrick, who was determined to learn more about this strange child, and to befriend him. But Patrick would get more than he bargained for…

Mama Fish is a story about the paths we choose … about the changes in society, and in ourselves. It is told through the eyes of Patrick Beauchamp, a loving family man who, at his heart, is troubled by much darkness … a man quite literally caught between the ghost and the machine.

Uncle Adolph by Jeffrey Sackett

It is December of 1927, the dead of winter in Linz, Austria. Geli Raubal is almost nineteen years old, and she feels that life is passing her by. She lives an unpleasant existence with her stuffy, provincial mother and her insufferable, oh-so-proper younger sister in a backwater town in what she regards as the middle of nowhere. Thus she is overjoyed when her mother receives an invitation to come to Munich, Germany, to act as housekeeper for her bachelor brother. Geli’s uncle is a man some twenty years older than she is, a man who is becoming increasingly important in the politics of Weimar Germany, a man who inspires both devotion in his followers as well as hatred in his enemies, a charismatic man whose piercing blue eyes and towering oratory can both mesmerize and horrify. Her uncle is Adolf Hitler.

In Munich, and at her uncle’s alpine villa on the Obersalzberg above Berchtesgaden, Geli becomes acquainted with his strange circle of friends: Joseph Goebbels, an idolater who found God in Adolf Hitler; Hermann Goering, a World War One air hero who led the Richthofen squadron after the Red Baron’s death, and is now Hitler’s ruthless right-hand man; Heinrich Himmler, a quiet, subdued, reptilian man whose calm exterior masks as an inner demon; Ernst Röhm, leader of the S.A., the Brown Shirts, the private army of the Nazi Party; Rudolf Hess, a slavish devotee of the Führer to whom Hitler dictated Mein Kampf while in prison: and many others.

In the bloody politics of Weimer Germany, with Nazis and Communists murdering each other on the streets as the democratic parties stand by and watch in impotent dread, all political groups prepare as best they can for whatever contingencies may arise. But the one thing that no one could anticipate, neither red nor rightist nor republican, is that Adolf Hitler and his niece Geli Raubal would fall hopelessly in love.

This novel tells the true story of the strange love affair between Geli and her Uncle Adolf, an affair that began in 1927 and ended in heart-rending tragedy in 1931.
