Two titans of modern horror-Brian Keene and Bryan Smith-team up for the terrifying crossover sequel to both Keene’s URBAN GOTHIC and Smith’s THE FREAKSHOW.
The Westgate Galleria Mall was once a sprawling, shining monument to American consumerism and suburban growth. Now, it is a crumbling reminder of how both have fallen-an architectural ghost, haunting the outskirts of society. That makes it the perfect filming location for a YouTube channel devoted to the exploration of abandoned places. But the mall isn’t as empty as it seems and the residents have sinister obscene plans for them. Now, with the daylight still hours away, both the hunters and the hunted will fight to stay alive…and desperately try to make it home.
SUBURBAN GOTHIC by Brian Keene and Bryan Smith-Home is where is the severed heart is…
We are developing a project that we can’t keep quiet about any longer…
Here at Deadite Press in Portland, Oregon we are entering our 14th week of downtown protests for black lives and we have barely recovered from the shock of unidentified federal officers illegally abducting people off the streets in unmarked vans. Today is the 57th anniversary of the historic March on Washington where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech. And the image for this post is a photograph taken Monday night in Kenosha, Wisconsin at a protest following the police shooting of Jacob Blake on Sunday. The fight for civil rights and equality in this country is far from over and this is the time for action.
To contribute to the cause and engage our community of creators and readers, I can share with you now that we are putting together an anthology of extreme horror stories about police brutality and systemic racism. In true Deadite Press style this anthology will be brutal and uncompromising. We have already reached out to many of our favorite horror writers and the responses have been inspiring! We will also be opening up for submissions soon.
The project is being edited by Andre Duza and Wrath James White. 100% of the net profits from this anthology will benefit NAACP Legal Defense Fund and The Equal Justice Initiative.
Here’s their official statement about the anthology:
BURN THA MOTHERFUCKA DOWN!
(Anti-fascism, Anti-racism, Extreme Horror tales of Justice, Anarchy, Revolution, and Revenge)
Edited by Andre Duza and Wrath James White
Systemic racism is hardwired into the US justice system. From police shootings and brutal beatings of unarmed black people, to mass incarceration and longer prison sentences for minorities and people of color, conviction of innocent men due to prosecutorial misconduct, laws that target minority communities with harsher sentences for marijuana and crack than for cocaine, designer drugs, and prescription opioids, anti-immigration laws that overwhelmingly target black and brown countries, bathroom bills and denial of healthcare for transpersons, the gay/ trans panic legal defense and the failure to prioritize and prosecute the murder of transwomen, it is clear the system is rigged against us. So, what is there left for us to do, but burn this motherfucker down!
100% of the net profits from this anthology will benefit NAACP Legal Defense Fund and The Equal Justice Initiative.
Burn Tha Motherfucka Down! will be published by Deadite Press in paperback and ebook formats with an anticipated release date in early 2021.
Stay tuned as things develop for information about how you can get involved!

They are The Dark Ones. The name began as a self-deprecating joke, but it stuck and now it’s a source of pride. They’re the one who don’t fit in. The misfits who drink and smoke too much and stay out all hours of the night. Everyone knows they’re trouble.
On the outskirts of Ransom, TN is an abandoned, boarded-up house. Something evil happened there long ago. The evil has been contained there ever since, locked down tight in the basement—until the night The Dark Ones set it free . . .
Eerie, piping music is heard late at night, and mysterious fires have been spotted deep in the woods. Women are vanishing without a trace overnight, leaving behind husbands and families.
When up-and-coming novelist Adam Senft stumbles upon an unearthly scene, it plunges him and the entire town into an ancient nightmare. Folks say the woods in LeHorn’s Hollow are haunted, but what waits there is far worse than any ghost.
It has been summoned…
and now it demands to be satisfied.
Adelle Smith has lived her entire life for the betterment of mankind. A Civil Rights Activist in the Sixties and Seventies, she has spent most of her adult life attending marches, giving speeches, and lending a hand to anyone in need.
But on the very evening she is to be acknowledged with a Lifetime Achievement Award for her humanitarian efforts, a stroke leaves her partially paralyzed and unable to speak. Now Adelle’s in the care of a ruthless hospice nurse, who sees not a hero before her, but the cause of her many hardships growing up as a child of interracial parents, someone who decides to give Adelle her very own brand of “Physical Therapy” consisting of pain and suffering, mental cruelty and torture.
And now, after a lifetime of helping others, Adelle needs help, quickly, before another round of brutal treatment snuffs out her life.

The city streets are no longer safe. They are filled instead with the living dead, rotting predators driven only by a need to kill and eat.

But for some, the darkness is not the worst of their fears. Driven mad by thirst, hunger, and perpetual night, the residents of Walden are ready to explode. The last few sane prisoners of this small town must prepare a final stand against their neighbors, themselves, and something even worse . . . something out there . . . in the darkness . . .
