NEW IN EBOOKS:

A Friend of Mr. Niijinsky – Historical mystery by CARO SOLES  – When the great Nijinsky arrives in New York to a tumultuous welcome in April, 1916, young Morgan Vanheusen braves his father’s wrath by helping the dancer steal away from his family’s estate during a charity event. An unlikely alliance blossoms and Morgan becomes known as ‘a friend of Mr. Nijinsky’. Doors open and he grabs the opportunity to get back to racing the motorcars he loves. But as the young American is drawn in to Nijinsky’s paranoid world, he is pulled into a murder investigation and discovers a side of his city he never knew existed. Then his sister is kidnapped by a mad Russian and only his new ‘friend’ can save her. Can Morgan count on the eccentric dancer to rescue his sister?

Disciples of the Serpent – An O.C.L.T. Tie-in Novel by Sid Williams – In Dublin, Ireland, academics and historians are dying. An unidentified venom is to blame. Strange markings from deep in the Emerald Isle’s past suggest adherents to lost and forbidden knowledge may have reorganized.

Detective Aileen O’Donnell, teamed with Geoffrey Bullfinch and Wendell “Mack” Macklemore of O.C.L.T. are on a race through medieval ruins and holy sites. They must collect puzzle pieces, fragments from a forgotten pulp writer and bits of secret Druid history to stop the shadowy band of disciples before it awakens something long sleeping beneath one of Ireland’s most famous landmarks, something modern technology and firepower can’t defeat.

Phoenix Sub-Zero by Michael DiMercurio – The Hegira is the finest super-sub that Arab oil money can buy. But the U.S. Navy is only now learning just how good this undersea sword of Islam is. Already one American sub has been destroyed, and another crippled, as the Hegira breaks out of the Mediterranean and heads toward America to deliver its lethal payload.

Now it’s up to Captain Michael Pacino and the USS Seawolf to find the enemy sub and destroy it—in the ultimate battle between the most advanced weapons technology on the planet…and the sheer force of human courage.

Women in Horror – a Big Crossroad Press Salute!

Women in Horror – a Big Crossroad Press Salute!

Note from CEO David Niall Wilson:

I have been privileged to have worked with a great number of talented ladies throughout a long career associated with publishing, writing, and several genres of fiction. I am likely most associated with the horror community, having served as the President of the HWA and won a couple of awards.  During that time, I’ve had the opportunity to meet and be influenced by so many talented authors. I’ve never really differentiated them by gender, race or any other criteria, but looking back, I can tell you that a great deal of the influence on my career, my writing style, and my love of horror as a genre can be attributed to a string of remarkable women. A short list (not complete) would include Elizabeth Massie, Kathe Koja, Poppy Z. Brite, Shirley Jackson, Tanith Lee, Yvonne Navarro, Anne Rice, Caitlin Kiernan, Patricia Lee Macomber, Janet Berliner and Joyce Carol Oates.  (No order, just thinking).

At Crossroad Press, we have also been privileged to publish a large number of “women in horror” and I wanted a post up here to highlight that.  I’m not putting the books on sale – I think if you are honoring something, trying to turn it into a bargain is not the best way to do that. I’m simply going to mention those we are working with, at least two of whom have (sadly) left us for whatever comes next. I hope you’ll follow the links, read some of the books, and love them as I have.

Titus Crow Series by Brian Lumley & Black Oak Series by Charles L. Grant in AUDIO!

Titus Crow Series by Brian Lumley & Black Oak Series by Charles L. Grant in AUDIO!

THE TITUS CROW SERIES – by BRIAN LUMLEY – Narrated by SIMON VANCE & COREY SNOW

In a departure from many Cthulhu Mythos stories, Lumley’s characters are not helpless victims of unimaginable forces which can drive humans mad by merely manifesting themselves. Instead, Titus Crow, his friend Henri-Laurent de Marigny, and other Lumley characters confront Cthulhu’s minions in a series of increasingly large-scale encounters, in which humans, although outmatched, try to fight back.

FIND THE ENTIRE SERIES IN AUDIO at AUDIBLE.COM / AMAZON.COM / iTUNES

THE BLACK OAK SERIES – by CHARLES L. GRANT – Narrated by ARTHUR FLAVELL

If you enjoy such surreal eyes as Harry Angel, Harry D’Amour and “Repairman Jack”, you might also be interested in checking out Charles L. Grant’s Black Oak series, which centers around Black Oak Security, “a crack team of private investigators led by brilliant, enigmatic ETHAN PROCTOR.” Black Oak handles many of the typical P.I. gigs: office fraud, business scams, background checks, missing persons, and a variety of white collar crime. But they also frequently trip the dark fantastic, thanks to Proctor’s abiding interest in, as one Amazon pundit puts it, “creatures and forces greater than natural.”

T. J. MacGregor Supernatural Suspense and Mystery 3 titles .99 Apiece!

T. J. MacGregor Supernatural Suspense and Mystery 3 titles .99 Apiece!

TJ Ad (low res)

T. J. MacGregor is the author of more than 30 novels and in 2003 won the Edgar Allan Poe award for Out of Sight.  She was born at Ballantine Books in 1987, when her editor told her that her maiden name, Trish Janeshutz, was too difficult to pronounce and that  mysteries by men were outselling mysteries by women. Could she please come up with a name that had initials? By then, she was married to novelist Rob MacGregor, so she became T.J. MacGregor. A few years later, she wrote Tango Key and by then, mysteries by women were outselling mysteries by men and her editor asked her to create a new female name for that book. So, she became Alison Drake.  Now that the world has moved on, and her work is coming back to a new world of readers through digital and digital audio, she is happy to bring her work together as T. J. MacGregor.

For a limited time, three of her novels – from three different mystery series – have been discounted to only .99 apiece. The Hanged Man is the first in the Mira Morales series (Supernatural Suspense) The Seventh Sense is the first novel about Charlie Calloway, an ex FBI agent who steps into worlds of the mind she did not expect to encounter.  Dark Fields is the first of the Quin St. James mysteries…  We hope all of these discounted titles will find their way to the hands of generations of new fans… Don’t hesitate. They will only be .99 for a short time!

THE TRUE CRIME BUNDLE

Curated by David Niall Wilson

Humans have always had a fascination for the dark side of life. While the thrills of mysteries, horror novels, and dark fantasies take readers to extremes, they generally return in on piece, reality and sanity restored. This is not always the case in the real world. The most frightening tales, the stories that keep people up at night, are all true. They frequent the news, inspire websites, and keep us watching over our shoulders as we walk down the street late at night.

In this True Crime Bundle, you’ll find stories from the darkest depths of humanity. From New York Time best-selling True Crime authors, to the distant relative of America’s most infamous serial killer, to tales of vigilantes, killers, and those who hunt the hunters – those who fight back.

You’ll find books by New York Times Bestselling author Steven Jackson, San Francisco’s own James Dalessandro, John Ferak, Gary Provost, who not only wrote true crime, but also a book on how to write True Crime, Jeff Mudgett, who tells the tale of his distant ancestor, H. H. Holmes and the Death Castle he built in Chicago around the time of the World’s Fair in the early 1900s. We also have work from Burl Barer, and Bradley Nickell, not to mention Michael W. Streed, who tells the story of a police sketch artist.

With the current popularity of Serial, the podcast and Making a Murderer, the series, these books should fascinate the hungriest of crime fans, running the gamut of crimes, detection, crazy villains and dedicated lawmen. – David Niall Wilson

If you pay more than the bonus price of just $15, you get all five of the regular titles, plus six more:

  • SketchCop by Michael W. Streed
  • Repeat Offender by Bradley Nickell with Warren Jamison
  • Man Overboard by Burl Barer
  • Fatal Dosage by Gary Provost
  • Dixie’s Last Stand by John Ferak
  • Bogeyman by Steve Jackson
