Mental Ward: Experiments

MentalWardExperiments_FinalFrontCover_promo

We’ll take fine care of your loved one – no need to worry…

A dank basement, shadow filled hallways, the deep echo of a metal latch being thrown while faint screams are heard… These are the things you might experience in a place where the unspeakable happens, where conscientious action and moral turpitude turn a blind eye in the interest of advancing one’s own personal pursuits in the most deranged and unjustifiable manner. The type of place where power corrupts, and depravity runs rampant among those imbued with it. A place where the unfortunate are abandoned to the devices of those who convince themselves their actions are in the best interest of science.

Mental Ward: Experiments is a collection of ten short stories that demonstrate the worst of humanity’s ambition in the interest of ‘civilized’ advancement. Step into a world where sanity is left behind, and horror is what the doctor ordered!

Featuring:

Anomaly, Sarah Doebereiner
Dread Pink, Guy Medley
Rorschach, L.E. White
Bell Haven, Frank Collia
Gingham Curtains and Electric Shock, Gwendolyn Kiste
Alice, Stephanie Nett
A Mutual Understanding, Nica Berry

Monster Brawl

MonsterBrawl_Front_Cover_final_promo

It’s time to let the monsters loose!

For this book, we collected stories of monsters doing epic battle with other monsters! The beasts could be classical by design with a unique twist, or they could be spawned straight from the author’s imagination. The only rule: there must be a clear-cut winner at the end of each story; one of the creatures had to die!

Some of the stories in this collection pit a single monster against another, while others are all-out gang warfare. Some are campy, some serious, but all a fight for the ages!

It’s time to get your game face on for twelve tales worthy of the title Monster Brawl!

Featuring:

Market Forces, Ben Howels
The Imp, the Gadfly, and the Hourglass, Joshua Skye
The Matriarch, Mya Lairis
Monster Milk, Hunter Shea
To Fight by the Light of the Silvery Moon, Scott Harper
Vices, Sergio Pereira
Altered Beasts, Jennifer L. Barnes

Wicked Deeds
Witches, Warlocks, Demons and Other Evil Doers

WD_WWDED_Final_FrontCover

 

Sometimes wicked people do wicked things simply because they can…

The twelve stories in Wicked Deeds tell tales of witches and warlocks with ill intent, devilish demons bent on destruction, and other doers of evil who make the world a terrifying place.

What is a mother to do when her daughter is gifted but lives under the thumb of her fanatical preacher husband who will brook no talk of the supernatural? What of a demon so desperate to free himself of a trap that he will force another to repeat his atrocities and condemn a young boy to his demonic fate? Or maybe the story of a crotchety old witch with a score to settle against the town she lives in is more to your liking – what evil will the seemingly harmless crony call upon when faced with an ultimatum?

If you’re looking for wicked people with supernatural abilities doing wicked things, this is the collection for you!

Featuring:

A Hundred Crimson Candles, B. David Spicer
Buyers and Cellars, Devin Darcy
Ghostville!, Darren French
The Devil’s in the Details, David O’Hanlon
Shiv, Jennifer Melzer
Puppy Farm, Josie Dorans
The Bone Thief of Belheim City, Kevin Holton
Broomstick and a Pointed Hat, Jonathan D. Nichols
Inquire Within, Mark Christopher Lane
Witches on Salem, Brian D. Mazur

Through Clouded Eyes
A Zombies Point of View

ThrouCloudedEyes_FinalCover_Front_promo

Through Clouded Eyes: A Zombie’s Point of View: a collection of twelve stories told from the Zombie’s perspective.

They’re shambling toward you, feet dragging on the broken roadway. Arms outstretched, faces slack, they move as if they’re tracking your scent on the wind. You want to run, but you know there’s nowhere to hide.

Aware of their insatiable hunger, fear paralyzes you. These things were once human, people someone loved. Is there anything left inside them – some sliver of humanity that may save you from this nightmare? Your mind doesn’t want to accept the inevitable, a single thought consumes you: what are they thinking?

With your chance of escape dwindling, you snap out of it and run like hell knowing there is little to no hope; fate is coming for you. Soon you will see what they see Through Clouded Eyes

Featuring:

The Lazarus Virus, Alex Woolf
Metamorphosis, Shannon Lawrence
Night Beat, Neal Privett
Immortal Infantry, Trevor Firetog
Through the Eyes of the Dead, Paul M. Feeney

What Dwells Below

SCP_WDB_Front_Cover_final_promo

Have you ever walked over a grate in a sidewalk or passed by a manhole cover slightly ajar only to find the small hairs on your arm starting to rise, or terror washing over you at what may lurk unseen?

The twelve tales in this anthology explore urban horrors waiting just below our feet… Whether it’s the story of four boys who go searching for an urban legend only to come face to face with something far more sinister, or a man who watches those who dwell below under the cover of darkness while secretly coveting their subterranean existence, or tales of persons gone missing who disappear into the depths never to be seen again, there’s something in this collection to keep even the most staunch explorer above ground for a long time.

What Dwells Below will haunt your imagination with the unseen long after you have finished reading it!

Featuring:

Subterranean, Peter Oliver Wonder
Gator Bait, Ray Zacek
Drains to Bay, Guy Riessen
Reclusive, Jason Kawa
Melvin’s Disgusting New Job, Christofer Nigro
The Space Between, Brent Abell
Clog, Jonah Buck
In the Dark, S.K. Gregory
The Kindling of Bones, Nicholas Pascall
Underworld, Sheldon Woodbury
The Tale of Thomas, Jeremy Magargee
Taken, DJ Tyrer
