Desp, you can still mock our covers, if you want. This thread isn't the same without your wit.

Anyway, here's the blatantly commercial message I came to post:

We are happy to announce that the Bram Stoker Award winning book Taste of Tenderloin by Gene O'Neill is now available on the new DarkRegions.com website. Read more about the book here: http://www.darkregions.com/taste-of-...by-gene-oneill

Thumbs up Crustaceans by William Meikle now available and in stock



The novel Crustaceans by William Meikle is now available on the DarkRegions.com website in a Deluxe Signed Hardcover and a Trade Paperback edition (first 100 copies signed by the author). The book is already in stock and shipping to customers.

Click here to read more about Crustaceans by William Meikle

From Scottish writer William Meikle comes a novel that is a welcome return to those tomes of pure enjoyment that we read with guilt in our early teens, in the tradition of James Herbert’s THE RATS and Guy N. Smith’s NIGHT OF THE CRABS.

It begins with a dead whale on a Boston shoreline--not in itself an unusual occurrence. But the things that claw their way out of the blubber are very unusual indeed. A cast of giant crabs, evolved over centuries, descends on a small coastal town and, having feasted, make their way to the city using the sewer system. Soon they are swarming around Manhattan, hunted and harried by a SWAT team tasked with ridding the city of the menace...before the menace gets big enough to rid itself of the city.


About the Author



William Meikle is a Scottish writer with over a dozen novels published in the genre press and over 200 short story credits in thirteen countries. He is the author of the ongoing Midnight Eye series among others, and his work appears in a number of professional anthologies. His ebook THE INVASION has been as high as #2 in the Kindle SF charts. He lives in a remote corner of Newfoundland with icebergs, whales and bald eagles for company. In the winters he gets warm vicariously through the lives of others in cyberspace, so please check him out at http://www.williammeikle.com

I actually really like the cover art for "Lullaby for the Rain Girl". Nicely done. I find myself really wanting to make fun of the flesh eating crab one though. I just can't think of anything good. Damn it Desp., where are you when I need a good laugh.

Thumbs up The Harmony Society by Tim Waggoner coming April 17th



The novel The Harmony Society by Tim Waggoner will be available on the DarkRegions.com website on Tuesday, April 17th.

Click here to read more about The Harmony Society by Tim Waggoner

Reality and nightmare. Past and present. Sanity and madness. For Nathan Bennett, there is no longer any difference between them - not since the Harmony Society came into his life. Now, as his world begins to collapse around him, Nathan must travel the strange and dangerous roads of the Nightway in search of the Dark Angel - a being of great power that the Harmony Society desperately wishes to control. But even if Nathan reaches the Angel first, what waits for him at the end of his long, dark road: salvation . . . damnation . . . Or both?

This novel is compelling, frightening, packed with haunting dreamlike imagery, and rich with imagination.
- Gary A. Braunbeck, author of Stoker-nominated author of THINGS LEFT BEHIND, THE INDIFFERENCE OF HEAVEN, and GRAVEYARD PEOPLE: The Collected Cedar Hill Stories, Vol. 1.


About the Author



Tim Waggoner wrote his first story at the age of five, when he created a comic book version of King Kong vs. Godzilla on a stenographer's pad. It took him a few more years until he began selling professionally, though. Overall, he has published more than twenty novels and two short story collections, and his articles on writing have appeared in Writer’s Digest and Writers’ Journal, among other publications. He teaches creative writing at Sinclair Community College and in Seton Hill University’s Master of Fine Arts in Writing Popular Fiction program. He hopes to continue writing and teaching until he keels over dead, after which he wants to be stuffed and mounted, and then placed in front of his computer terminal.

Thumbs up The White Room by Rick Hautala coming Tuesday, May 8th



The novel The White Room by Bram Stoker Lifetime Achievement Award winner Rick Hautala will be available on the DarkRegions.com website on Tuesday, May 8th.

Click here to read more about The White Room by Rick Hautala

Heading for Hilton, Maine, to spend the summer restoring his old childhood home, Tim and Polly Harris and their young son, Brian, encounter more than they had bargained for when human bones are found at a nearby construction site, Brian nearly drowns, and Polly encounters a mysterious young girl whom no one else can see and an evil force bent on their destruction.

“Rick Hautala’s writing shines with dedication, hard-earned craft, and devotion.” - Peter Straub

“Rick Hautala is a modern master of horror. He breathtakingly captures the things we fear, and love. With love, humanity, and a chilling eye, Hautala makes our hearts race.” - Matthew J. Costello

“Rick Hautala proves each time out that he understands and respects the inner workings of the traditional horror novel as well or better than anyone writing. He brings his own brand of ice and fire and blood to his work and he never forgets to entertain the reader.” - Joe R. Lansdale

“Writes about the dark side of life as if he has lived there for centuries.” - John Coyne

“One of the most consistently reliable horror novelists ... [Rick Hautala] is adept at creating a chilly, unnerving atmosphere, particularly with his unconventional ghost stories.” - Don D’Ammassa, Science Fiction Chronicle


About the Author



Rick Hautala is best known as a speculative fiction and horror writer. He graduated from the University of Maine in 1974 where he received a Master of Art in English Literature. Rick arrived on the horror scene in 1980 with many of his early novels published by Zebra books. He has written and published over 90 novels and short stories since the early 1980s. Many of his books have been translated to other languages and sold internationally. Cold Whisper, published in October, 1991 by Zebra Books, Inc. was also published in Finnish as Haamu by Werner Soderstrom Oy, Helsinki, Finland, in August, 1994. Recently he has published many of his works with specialty press and small press publishers like Cemetery Dance Publications and Dark Harvest. His novel The Wildman (2008), was chosen to be Full Moon Press' debut limited edition title.

Don't give up Morey! Eventually someone will lurk back in here. But, as a side note. Please tell me "Taste of Tenderloin" is troll bait. There is no way I can take that book seriously.

Ghostly tales of 18th and 19th century New England

The hour is late, and wind whispers at the window. Autumn leaves have taken wing and a breeze troubles the candle flame. Something from the past has returned and walks the moonlit night. Something dead.

The door may be bolted and the fire may be warm, but the ghosts in Scott Thomas's URN AND WILLOW will find you. They wait patiently within the covers, inviting you to visit the lonely chamber where three sisters starved to death, and the small town where the devil's hoof prints steam in the snow, and a house where the rooms mysteriously multiply and are inhabited by otherworldly creatures. Come inside and visit the haunted seasons of the past.

Here is one of eleven interior illustrations by artist Erin Wells within Urn & Willow by Scott Thomas. Click on the image for larger version:

In this collection you will follow the music into dark places, down dark passageways, where dark melodies play.

Thumbs up Cold to the Touch by Simon Strantzas Now Available on DarkRegions.com



The critically acclaimed collection Cold to the Touch by Simon Strantzas is now available once again from Dark Regions Press in all-new collectible editions, including an introduction by author Reggie Oliver, new cover artwork and six interior illustrations by J.D. Busch and a new afterword by author Simon Strantzas.

Cold to the Touch is available in a leather-bound signed by both author and artist Deluxe Lettered Hardcover with slipcase edition and a Trade Paperback edition.


Click here to read more about Cold to the Touch by Simon Strantzas

There is a cold that cannot be imagined, a chill so deep it turns blood to ice, cracks flesh, tears meat from bone. It is the horror of our own reality, the terrifying curse of our own survival. Can you feel it creeping down your spine?

Simon Strantzas, author of the mesmerizing Beneath the Surface and brilliant Nightingale Songs, brings his critically-acclaimed and long out-of-print collection back to find a whole new audience. In these thirteen strange and dark tales, you will find vacationers on the edge of forever, lonely pilgrims searching for answers, the dying reminded of all they have lost and all they have yet to lose. Strantzas's fiction is a haunting echo across the barren Arctic tundra, and once you hear its howl you will never forget the sound.


"Simon Strantzas is an important new writer of weird fiction, a position solidified by the release of his new collection, Cold to the Touch, from Tartarus Press. What I admire most about this collection, besides the fine writing, is how these stories defy a simply summarization. This fiction goes far beyond the simple scares of most horror. A mystery defying the usual explication of plot lies at the heart of each one, giving us much to chew on long after the story has ended. Cold to the Touch is a great reading experience."
— Steve Rasnic Tem

"[T]he second collection by the author, with thirteen stories, six of them new, all of them quite powerful and dark."
— Ellen Datlow

"Cold to the Touch is a delightfully chilling gallery of the ghoulish, the nightmarish, and the weird. With this follow-up to the excellent Beneath the Surface, Strantzas continues to impress."
— Laird Barron


About the Author



Simon Strantzas is the author of the critically-acclaimed Cold to the Touch and Nightingale Songs. His first collection, Beneath the Surface, has been called "one of the most important debut short story collections in the genre". Strantzas's stories have appeared in The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror, Cemetery Dance, and Postscripts. In 2009, his work was nominated for the British Fantasy Award for Best Short Fiction. He lives in Toronto, Canada, with his wife and an unyielding hunger for the flesh of the living. For more information, please visit http://www.strantzas.com/

Three New Trade Paperbacks In Stock!



We are happy to announce that three new trade paperback editions are now in stock and shipping to customers! Urn & Willow by Scott Thomas (a 150 Signed and Numbered Limited Trade Paperback that features three different covers!), Multiplex Fandango by Weston Ochse and Tales of the Weak & The Wounded by Gary McMahon.



Urn & Willow by Scott Thomas

Urn & Willow is the fifth book in our ongoing Ghost House imprint and features eleven interior illustrations by artist Erin Wells.

Ghostly tales of 18th and 19th century New England

The hour is late, and wind whispers at the window. Autumn leaves have taken wing and a breeze troubles the candle flame. Something from the past has returned and walks the moonlit night. Something dead.

The door may be bolted and the fire may be warm, but the ghosts in Scott Thomas's URN AND WILLOW will find you. They wait patiently within the covers, inviting you to visit the lonely chamber where three sisters starved to death, and the small town where the devil's hoof prints steam in the snow, and a house where the rooms mysteriously multiply and are inhabited by otherworldly creatures. Come inside and visit the haunted seasons of the past.

"In his latest collection from Dark Regions Press “Urn & Willow” Scott continues what he does best…write atmospheric spooky stories filled with subtle terror, restless spirits and haunting imagery that will stay with you long after you put down the book. "Urn & Willow" is filled with stories from 18th and 19th century New England, being a native New Englander the book resonates with me especially. His descriptive prose perfectly grasps the feel of old New England and it’s inhabitants... alive or dead." - Famous Monsters of Filmland



Multiplex Fandango by Weston Ochse

Multiplex Fandango is subtitled "A Weston Ochse Reader" for good reason. This collection contains a comprehensive representation of short fiction and novellas by the Bram Stoker award winner and Pushcart Prize nominee, including his recent powerful Stoker finalist short story, "The Crossing Of Aldo Rey" and his brilliant Stoker finalist novella, Redemption Roadshow, as well as acclaimed favorites, "Catfish Gods" and "Big Rock Candy Mountain." Also included in this omnibus volume of sixteen short stories and novellas are six original new works of short fiction written especially for this collection including such future classics as "Tarzan Doesn't Live Here Anymore," "Low Men Weeping," and the stunning, "City Of Joy."

“Multiplex Fandango. Say it. Multi-plex Fan-dan-go. It's beautiful, isn't it? Just rolls off the tongue. It’s almost as beautiful and satisfying as the book you may now be holding in your hands, or reading a review about. What we’re seeing here is quite possibly the most comfortable, relaxed, and expert takeover that the horror genre has ever seen. With Multiplex Fandango, Weston Ochse has created an incredible collection, and has given the reader one of the smoothest, most satisfying reads they could ever come across. To drive the point home, Joe Landsdale says in the intro that "This is a book that could almost have been written for me.", but I disagree - this book was written for anyone looking for imaginative, intelligent, and thoroughly awe-inspiring, but strangely uplifting scares that force the reader to think more than react." - Paperback Horror

"This is a book that could almost have been written for me." - Eight-Time Bram Stoker Award Winner Joe R. Lansdale on Multiplex Fandango



Tales of the Weak & The Wounded by Gary McMahon

The sound of shuffling footsteps across the old cell floor…

A soft voice like a strange tune echoing along the empty corridors…

Dim lights in the windows of the abandoned asylum…

Discarded case files that flip open to reveal the dreams of broken minds…

Welcome to a place where the boundaries of fact and fiction meet.

Acclaimed author Gary McMahon raids the archives of a notorious derelict mental asylum called the Daleside Institute to bring you stories of madness, horror and emotional trauma. In locations as diverse as suburban Germany, the London Underground, an Italian seaside resort and the inhospitable polar icecap, you will meet damaged people with broken lives. Here are terrifying accounts of love, hate, death and madness…

These are the Tales of the Weak and the Wounded

"If you love short stories, this is a must book for your collection. If you haven’t read anything by Mr. McMahon this is a great place to start. One of the better collections of short stories I’ve read and I give it my highest recommendation, I will definitely be keeping my eyes out for more from Gary McMahon." - Famous Monsters of Filmland

"This is a great collection of stories and an excellent showcase for the highly talented Gary McMahon. There are enough images in here to haunt your dreams for months to come but there's also depth here, strong ideas and commentary. The best horror holds up a mirror to society, is grounded in reality and Tales of The Weak and The Wounded is an exemplar of this." - Dark Musings

In a smoky, after hours jazz joint where almost nobody ever dies, or the ranch house next door owned by a monster, or a high rise elevator in which raging terror awaits the next passenger, these brilliant stories discover a world you thought you knew--and a darker one you will never forget. With 13 stories never before collected, NEW MOON ON THE WATER is Mort Castle's first new collection in a decade, presenting the best short fiction of the writer deemed a "horror doyen," "the Charles Dickens of horror," and "the master of contemporary horror."

"Mort Castle is one of the best short story writers in the horror field today. More than that, he's one of the best short story writers around, period. . He writes short stories that make a point, stick in your memory, remain with you long after you've put down the book in which they appear." – Robert Weinberg, Novelist, Editor of World Fantasy and Bram Stoker Lifetime Achievement Award recipient
