No Shelter

by Ray Garton

(Release date – 3/11/2024)

(Previously published as Frankenstorm)

A storm of epic proportions is brewing off the coast of northern California. Residents have been warned to prepare for disaster. It’s a false hope in the face of what’s coming…

In a secret government lab, virologist Fara McManus tries to stop an experiment out of control—before more human subjects are infected. But in a blazing hail of bullets, survivalist Ollie Monk launches a paramilitary attack on the lab, releasing the infected into the night. And as the nightmare escalates to a fever pitch, internet blogger Ivan Renner traces the destruction as it claims more victims, beginning with a single mother unknowingly spreading the virus. A father and son, held hostage by a lunatic. A local sheriff, single-handedly fighting madness, murder, and worse.

No one will find shelter from this storm.

The Mind Worms

by Nicholas Kaufmann

(Release date – 3/12/2024)

Over the years, Dr. Laura Powell has seen things in her morgue that no one has ever seen before—a corpse filled with an unknown fungus, a body completely petrified mere moments after death—but she’s never had a dead body wake up on the autopsy table.

Until now.

Environmental scientist Jordan Mintz was pronounced dead after suffering a mysterious illness. Now, suddenly, he finds himself alive once more, but changed. Plagued by visions of worms and an unforgiving, insatiable hunger, he wonders if he’s the same man he was before.

Or if he’s even human anymore.

After a brutal act of violence rocks the small Hudson Valley city of Sakima, Jordan goes missing. With the help of forensic tech Park Dae-jung and chief of police Elena Morales, Laura searches for answers. How is Jordan alive again? What is the unknown illness that supposedly killed him in the first place? And most importantly, where did Jordan go?

Because time is running out. There are other people looking for Jordan, too. People who would have preferred he stay dead. But that’s not the worst of it. Something is growing inside of Jordan, something inhuman, dangerous, and deadly. When it emerges, no one anywhere will be safe.

With The Mind Worms, multiple award-nominated bestselling author Nicholas Kaufmann delivers yet another riveting, fast-paced thriller in the Dr. Laura Powell series.

The Mirror of Eternity

by Garrett Boatman

(Release date – 3/12/2024)

In the Desert of Dudael, the demon Azazel is freed from the pit where he has dwelled for millennia. On the frozen world of Abyss, fallen angels banished from earth in the time of Enoch, prepare for their return.

But the world is vanishing. Soon there will be battleground for neither man nor demon.

Rick Scott has sworn off magic, but when he receives a summons from his former mentor, he must travel the ravaged wasteland of time and gaze into the mirror of eternity before the world plunges into the white-hot singularity of creation.

But there are creatures that dwell within time’s labyrinth who would sate their unspeakable hunger on the unwary traveler.

The Jar and Other Stories

by Edward Lee

(Release date – 3/25/2024)

The kids go into the bounce house, but when they come out…they’re not kids anymore.

When a cam girl drives to the nearest grocery store, her GPS navigator takes her to another far more interesting location.

Very pregnant Teresa has all her stuck-up friends coming for her baby shower, but there’s one guest who wasn’t invited, and his gift is most unusual: a jellyfish.

The billionaire’s mansion has many dark hallways but at the end of one of them you’ll find a curious array of artifacts, including Elvis Presley’s excrement, President Kennedy’s brain-bucket, and one other thing that really takes the cake…

After forty years of writing demented horror fiction, Edward Lee is still truckin’, and he invites you to pull up a chair and spend a few more evenings in his world…

Martyrs and Traitors: A Tale of 1916

by M. J. Neary

(Release date – 3/26/2024)

Dublin, Good Friday, 1916

Kidnapped and held at gunpoint by his former IRB comrades, Bulmer Hobson, the misunderstood antihero of 1916, denounces the ill-fated Easter Rising he had tried to prevent. While his captors joke about shooting him and dumping his body on the railroad tracks, his terrified fiancée roams the chaos-ravaged city in search of him.

Fifteen years of political rivalry, international conspiracy, botched love affairs, and taunting promises of glory culminate in a bloody showdown. Once branded “the most dangerous man in Ireland” by the police, Hobson is about to be deleted from history.

Based on historical accounts, Martyrs and Traitors is an intimate glance into the conflicted and shattered heart of Ireland’s discredited patriot.

The Saga of Dead-Eye, Book Three: Man-Eaters, Mummies, & Murderous Maniacs

by Ronald Kelly

(Release date – 3/27/2024)


Driven by the desire to rescue his abducted son and a relentless thirst for retribution, the zombified gunfighter, Dead-Eye, continues his search for the renegade vampire, Jules Holland, and his unholy entourage. Accompanying him on his journey is the Louisiana mojo man, Job, who is hellbent on putting an end to his daughter Evangeline’s wicked shenanigans. As long as she possesses the demonic tome, Necronomicon, and holds the ability to open the otherworldly Hole Out of Nowhere, no territory is safe from the infinite evil the dark enchantress has at her fingertips!


As Dead-Eye and Job travel across the scorching deserts of Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona, horrors await them in the form of flesh-devouring critters, rampaging mummies bent on revenge, and the town of Hellbound, a haven for deranged and bloodthirsty desperados who kill at the drop of a hat. Along the way, they come across the pugnacious Missy Slatter, a child abandoned in the wilderness after the outlaw gang, Baker’s Dozen, slaughters her family and steals their horses. It is up to the gunfighter and the swamp shaman to keep the girl safe and deliver her to her grandparents… and perhaps deal some much deserved vengeance to the Baker’s Dozen along the way!
