From Grandmaster of Horror, Brian Keene, comes a pandemic tale of survival and terror.
When a freak storm hits, time is the enemy as a government-created super virus gets loose and spreads through the quiet little town of Godfrey, Illinois. But the virus isn’t the only threat. There are mysterious forces at play and disease is just one instrument of fear.
Previously out of print and never before available as a stand-alone, this new edition of WHITE FIRE has been revised and expanded, and is considered the Author’s Preferred Version.
From the Wonderland Book Award-winning twisted mind behind A God of Hungry Walls, Garrett Cook, comes the most offensive and inappropriate book yet released by the leading publisher of extreme horror, Deadite Press.
The news is a lie. The conspiracies are real. We all see the constant reports of mass shootings in the United States. Footage of death and panic and random citizens being massacred by terrorists or crazies. But what the viewers at home don’t see are the agendas these attacks are pushing or that those “victims” are trained actors paid to be a part of the scene. They are “crisis actors.”
John is a “Crisis Boy,” created by the secret organizations that really pull the strings behind the scenes of government and economics. He was created to be shot, stabbed, and blown-up and yet recover as no human should be able. He is used to staging massacres, assassinations, and create the kind of terror that will allow the powers that be to control the public and the world.
But on his latest assignment, John’s programming begins to break down. He begins to question his role in this massive manipulation of society. All because he’s met someone kind—a girl. Someone that he knows is supposed to die, but he’s going to do everything he can to prevent it.
Crisis Boy is an extreme horror novel of conspiracies, secret societies, and of how love and kindness can fuck-up the best-laid plans.
“One of the coolest book concepts I’ve heard in years. When you read Garrett Cook, you never quite know what kind of madness you’re going to get.” —Carlton Mellick III
From Andre Duza, celebrated author of Dead Bitch Army and WZMB, comes a groundbreaking horror novel told as a transcript of a rockumentary about the first band to go on tour after the zombie apocalypse.
The rock band, Serpentine, had been through a lot of shit. But then, so had the entire world after the dead rose and began consuming the living. They went from selling out stadiums to scavenging for food, shelter, and supplies. Their motto, “No gig is too small,” used to mean they would perform anywhere. Now it has come to mean they will survive anything.
But even after the apocalypse, they can’t escape their biggest fan–an undead groupie, dressed in a Serpentine t-shirt, that seems to be following them across the country.
Even if the world has ended, you gotta go on. Across America, small communities of survivors are rebuilding and trying to recreate the world that was lost. After making contact with one, Serpentine travels there to do what they were born to do–play a goddamn rock-and-fucking-roll show!
But the venue isn’t interested in only putting on a kick-ass show. The people there have been experimenting with the undead and Serpentine’s music could hold a key to moving forward in a world dominated by the walking dead.

From the celebrated author of the socially conscious horror novels THE VEGAN REVOLUTION…WITH ZOMBIES and BOOT BOYS OF THE WOLF REICH, David Agranoff, comes a brutal tale of eco-horror in the tradition of THE SHEEP LOOK UP and THE BRIDGE.
Mother Nature is angry. Really angry.
San Diego is known for being one of the most beautiful cities in America. There is trouble in paradise. Illness is rampant and people are starting to notice. A series of wildfires are popping up and threatening to surround the city. The air is becoming unbreathable, the water supply is contaminated, and the survivors are losing their sanity and grip on their humanity. For the millions of people stuck, the city has turned into a death trap.
From the homeless on the streets to City Hall, from the firefighters on the front lines to media covering the crisis, Ring of Fire is a kaleidoscopic look at the ecological collapse in the first world.
Humans have ravaged the planet for too long, now Mother Nature is going to get her revenge.
