WELCOME TO NECROPOLIS by Bryan Killian

welcome cover

When the zombies come to Redding, California, it all goes down in a matter of days.

They say the first to die are the lucky ones. But there’s nothing lucky about these poor fucks, shot from behind or gutted and gnawed on the streets of their city gone wild.

And no cop, no crook, no citizen or soldier can do anything to stop it. Just fight until there’s nothing left. Fight. And die. And rise again. As civilization crumbles, one bloody chunk at a time.

Bryan Killian’s debut novel is a thrilling non-stop ultraviolent powerhouse of undead action.

WELCOME TO NECROPOLIS

There are no lucky ones…

Featuring an introduction from horror legend Brian Keene.

THE RISING: DELIVERANCE by Brian Keene

delieverance cover

Go back to the beginning of the end of the world…

Hell has come to earth as sadistic zombies rampage and massacre the human population. Reverend Thomas Martin has lost his congregation to the chaos but he found two wayward survivors to protect – Becky and John. The three of them have holed up in Martin’s church in a desperate attempt for survival. But as supplies run low and civilization crumbles around them, Martin must come to a realization – God has abandoned them. But why?

Is there any chance of hope in this new world? Is there any chance for deliverance?

Modern horror legend, Brian Keene returns to his fan-favorite universe of The Rising with a tale of faith, loss, and zombies.

This special edition also includes two short stories that expand and explore The Rising mythos – “The Resurrection and the Life” and “The Siqquism who Stole Christmas.”

DIE, YOU BASTARD! DIE! by Jan Kozlowski

die cover

IT’S TIME TO TAKE CARE OF BIG DADDY

Claire’s an expert paramedic, devoted to saving lives. Maybe that’s because she spent her childhood in hell. But decades later, when her monstrously abusive father winds up hospitalized, she is offered a chance to make things right. Too bad it doesn’t work out that way.

Instead, Claire is plunged back into a nightmare of pedophiliac torture and unhinged psychosis so deeply fucked that her only hope of survival may lie in becoming a monster herself.

One way or another, this family tradition ends tonight. And blood ain’t but the half of it.

“DIE, YOU BASTARD! DIE! is a twisted free-fall into hell that doesn’t know the first thing about pulling a punch. If you’re looking to be completely disgusted while utterly riveted, this is your best bet outside of Jack Ketchum. Non-stop, agonizing suspense.” – Spinetingler Magazine

New Fall Releases from Deadite Press

InTheEndOnlyDarkness front cover

“If you’re a fan of extreme horror, you’re going to love this.”
-Hellnotes

“O’Rourke writes with rare confidence and style. Though undoubtedly disturbing and sometimes brutal, still her work has something quite rare and special-heart.”
-Tim Lebbon, author of Echo City

Raw, brutal, and unapologetic, this collection features the twisted and shocking world of Monica J. O’Rourke. Turn back now if you are faint of heart, or be prepared to encounter the consequences of a gynecological visit gone horribly wrong, discover a unique form of circumcision, fear the roving packs of homicidal cannibal babies that come out at night, and worship genital mutilation as art.

In the tradition of writers such as Jack Ketchum and Edward Lee, and movies such as Saw and Hostel-In the End, Only Darkness is a visceral collection of horror that explores the pain possible in the human heart and body. O’Rourke demonstrates once again that she is one of the most vicious and disturbing writers of extreme fiction.

TRIBESMEN by Adam Cesare

Tribesmen cover“THE ULTIMATE LITERARY MIDNIGHT MOVIE.
A cunning, cinematic redmeat feast for weird film lovers and horror freaks.”
-John Skipp

DON’T FUCK WITH THE NATIVES!

Thirty years ago, cynical sleazeball director Tito Bronze took a tiny cast and crew to a desolate island. His goal: to exploit the local tribes, spray some guts around, cash in on the gore-spattered 80s Italian cannibal craze.

But the pissed-off spirits of the island had other ideas. And before long, guts were squirting behind the scenes, as well. While the camera kept rolling…

TRIBESMEN is Adam Cesare’s blistering tribute to Cannibal Holocaust and Lucio Fulci: a no-bullshit glimpse into grindhouse filmmaking, stuffed inside a rocket of tropical non-stop mayhem.

Brian Keene to receive the 2014 World Horror Grand Master Award

From Brian Keene’s website:

We’re lucky enough to work in a genre with a LOT of awards — the Bram Stoker award, Shirley Jackson award, British Fantasy award, Chainsaw award, the Rondos, and many others. In my mind, the two highest honors a horror author could ever hope to achieve are a Stoker LAA and the WHC Grand Master. When I was informed I’d been selected for the latter, I began laughing and crying at the same time. Then, there were a tense five minutes where I thought I was going to have a second heart attack. Once that passed, I shared the news with a small handful of people I love. Then, hours later, I convinced myself that this was all some practical joke. And though several weeks have passed, I’m still half-expecting Christopher Golden or Kelli Owen to jump out from behind a curtain and shout, “Ha! Got you again!”

The previous Grand Master Award winners are (in order) Robert Bloch, Stephen King, Richard Matheson, Anne Rice, Clive Barker, Dean Koontz, Peter Straub, Brian Lumley, Ramsey Campbell, Harlan Ellison, Ray Bradbury, Charles L. Grant, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, Jack Williamson, F. Paul Wilson, Ray Garton, Joe R. Lansdale, Robert McCammon, Tanith Lee, James Herbert, Jack Ketchum, T. E. D. Klein, and Dan Simmons. The impact every one of those writers had on me cannot be stressed enough. I was a fan of this genre long before I ever began making my living from it, and every one of those previous winners inspired or entertained me at some point in my life. That I am lucky enough to call several of them friend or mentor has always been a blessing and a dream, even after all these years. That I am somehow now considered worthy enough to accept this honor alongside them is, quite simply, astounding.

We couldn’t be prouder of Keene here at Deadite Press. He has been an intensely creative, influential, and supportive voice in the horror genre and no one is more deserving of the award!
