http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/books/fiction/dark_melodies/front_med_200px.jpg 

Dark Melodies by William Meikle, a new supernatural collection with tales all based on music will be available on the DarkRegions.com website on Tuesday, June 19th.

Click here to read more and view the expanded full-cover artwork for Dark Melodies by William Meikle

Music can transport you. It can bring sunshine on a cloudy day and lift your heart in times of trouble. But there is another side, a darker side, to music. Allow yourself to be open to a different melody, and who knows where the dance will take you.

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


"William Meikle's stories capture the reader's imagination and takes it on a whirlwind of a roller-coaster ride that will leave you breathless come the last page." - Ginger Nuts of Horror

"I have become a big fan of Mr. Meikle, his books are always good and he is one hell of a storyteller." - Famous Monsters of Filmland

"In a literary world of mediocrity, William Meikle stands out as an author of almost arcane talents." - J Kent Holloway, author of Primal Thirst

"William Meikle's short stories and novels are shining examples of what is missing in horror fiction today: atmospheric in style, old-school in character, with an intriguing story to be told." - David Wynn, Mythos Books

Re: Dark Regions Press book announcement thread

http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/books/fiction/cold_to_the_touch/front_med_200px.jpg 

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

http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/authors_artists/simon_strantzas/simon_200px.jpg

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/

Re: Dark Regions Press book announcement thread

http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/books/three_new_trades.jpg

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

http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/books/fiction/glimpses/front_med_200px.jpg 

Glimpses: The Best Short Stories of Rick Hautala is now available on the DarkRegions.com website in two premium hardcover editions.  It includes twenty-four stories from the Lifetime Achievement Award winning best-selling author of the million-copy seller Night Stone, Rick Hautala. 

The book features an original wrap-around cover and eight original interior illustrations by award-winning artist Glenn Chadbourne.


Click here to read more about Glimpses: The Best Short Stories of Rick Hautala

http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/books/fiction/glimpses/glimpses_full_cover_thumb.jpg   http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/books/fiction/glimpses/hanging_head_interior_illo_thumb.jpg   http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/books/fiction/glimpses/crow_interior_illo_thumb.jpg   http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/books/fiction/glimpses/grave_interior_illo_thumb.jpg

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

One of 2012’s HWA Lifetime Achievement Award Winners, Rick Hautala has a writing career that spans more than three decades. From Moondeath, his first novel published in 1980, to the republication of his best-selling novel The White Room (DRP, 2012) and his forthcoming “Little Brothers” novella Indian Summer (CD Publications, 2012), his novels and short stories have entertained millions of readers around the world.

Now comes Glimpses, a career-spanning “best of” collection that brings together twenty-four stories, including eight from each of Rick’s critically-acclaimed collections Bedbugs and Occasional Demons, and eight previously uncollected stories.

And Glimpses delivers what it promises—quick glimpses into the deepest shadows of our lives, around unfamiliar corners of streets we think we know, and down the darkest alleys of strange cities where readers will have to face their worst fears and their most unnerving nightmares.

Of course, Glimpses wouldn’t be a Rick Hautala collection if it didn’t included gorgeous original artwork—a wraparound cover and eight new illustrations—from award-winning artist Glenn Chadbourne.

So whether it’s in a haunted schoolhouse or an abandoned lighthouse, an iron bridge that spans a fast-moving river or a World War I battlefield, prepare yourself because you never know what you may catch a glimpse of … and by then, it may already be too late.



“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, author of Vacation and Home
       
“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, author of the Hap and Leonard books and Edge of Dark Water

“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 Chronice

“A master of contemporary horror and suspense.”
—T. Liam McDonald, Cemetery Dance


About the Author

http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/authors_artists/rick_hautala/rick_200px.jpg

Under his own name, Rick Hautala has written around thirty novels, including the million-copy best seller Nightstone, as well as Winter Wake, The Mountain King, and Little Brothers. He has previously published two short story collections: Bedbugs and Occasional Demons. He has had over sixty short stories published in a variety of national and international anthologies and magazines.

Writing as A. J. Matthews, his novels include the bestsellers The White Room, Looking Glass, Follow, and Unbroken.

His forthcoming books from Cemetery Dance Publications include Indian Summer, a new “Little Brothers” novella, as well as two novels, Chills and Waiting. He recently delivered The Star Road, a science fiction novel co-written with Matthew Costello, to Brendan Deneen at Thomas Dunne/St. Martin’s due to be published in 2013.

With Mark Steensland, he has written several screenplays, included the multiple award-winning short film Peekers, based on the short story by Kealan Patrick Burke; The Ugly File, based on the short story by Ed Gorman; and Lovecraft’s Pillow, inspired by a suggestion from Stephen King.

Born and raised in Rockport, Massachusetts, Rick is a graduate of the University of Maine in Orono with a Master of Arts in English Literature. He lives in southern Maine with author Holly Newstein. Combined, they have five sons, all of whom have grown up and (mostly) moved out, leaving the house frighteningly quiet.

In 2012, he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Horror Writers’ Association.

Most of his books and stories—and all of them, soon—will be available in all major e-book formats from a variety of e-publishers. For more information, check out his website http://www.rickhautala.com.

Re: Dark Regions Press book announcement thread

http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/books/poetry/notes_from_the_shadow_city/front_med_200px.jpg 

Dark Regions Press is excited to announce a new poetry collection by Grand Master, four-time Bram Stoker award winning poet Bruce Boston and Bram Stoker award nominated poet Gary William Crawford.  Gary William Crawford's "The Shadow City" collection was nominated for a Bram Stoker Award.

The book features art and eight interior images by Bruce Boston.

Click here to read more about Notes from the Shadow City by Bruce Boston and Gary William Crawford

“In Notes from the Shadow City, Crawford and Boston distill a bleak dystopian vision. Alone or together, and utilizing poetry, prose, and photographic images, they have crafted a guidebook, a Baedeker to the same outliers as chronicled by Dostoyevsky, Kafka, and Orwell, where shadows are more real than the gnomons that cast them, and the predominant colors come from the stripped-down underside of the rainbow.”
—Robert Borski, author of Blood Wallah and Other Poems

“Like grim guides of the underworld, Boston and Crawford lead you into a terrifying landscape of tragedy and tyranny. At times morbid, despairing, inspiring, and hauntingly beautiful, the Shadow City etches itself into your mind with lonely, tormented characters and their tragic fates.”
—Anders Monsen, Editor, Prometheus

“Boston’s and Crawford’s voices meld beautifully to create dark music. Notes from the Shadow City will echo in your nightmares.”
—Linda D. Addison, Bram-Stoker-Award-winning author of Being Full of Light, Insubstantial

“To say that reading Notes from the Shadow City is a delight might be misleading; to say that it is unsettling, disconcerting, provocative, and remarkable is to scratch the surface of the shadows and begin to reveal the genius beneath.”
—from the introduction by Michael R. Collings, author of The House beyond the Hill

Re: Dark Regions Press book announcement thread

http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/misc/halloween_grab_bag_pic.jpg

You wanna know what’s in this black bag?

We’ll give you an idea. We think you’re alright enough for that. But the rest of it is a surprise, got it?

First, anyone who buys the Halloween Grab Bag could win a subscription to the DRP 2012 Book Club. Did you get that? A free subscription to our book club with a $210 value, giving you Signed Limited Hardcovers of all the following titles: Glimpses: The Best Short Stories of Rick Hautala, Crooked House by Joe McKinney, Survival Horror by Jeff Strand, The Walls of the Castle by Tom Piccirilli, Holes For Faces by Ramsey Campbell, The Encounters of Enoch Coffin by W.H. Pugmire and Jeffrey Thomas.

How’s that for an all-star lineup? And we didn’t even mention all the extra stuff you get for being a DRP book club member.

Second, three of you lucky blood-suckers are gonna get sculptures. That includes the wolf head, the living gun, the zombie head candle holder and the never-before-seen demon head. That’s right, you could win the head of a demon with this grab bag. Put that on your mantle and terrify the whole family. It’s Halloween season, right?

Third, after you place your order we’ll send you the new story “Protect Us From The Piranha People!” by Jeff Strand, author of Pressure, Dweller and A Bad Day For Voodoo. Will the mayor shut down the beach? Or will he let dozens of people be eaten alive to let tourist season begin? We say pull up a lounge chair a few dozen feet from the shore, grab a bucket of popcorn and tell people how nice the water looks. But we’re a little deranged like that.

Finally, you won't receive books that you've ordered in the past (that's right, we'll actually check your DarkRegions.com order history).  You can even leave a note telling us which titles you already own.

Below all of this you’ll find the contents of the bag (bag not included, but who the hell cares about a bag, anyway?). Now the question is: will the mayor let them swim?  Find out inside the Halloween Grab Bag.

Re: Dark Regions Press book announcement thread

http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/books/fiction/crooked_house/front_med_200px.jpg

From the Bram Stoker Award winning mass-distributed author of Dead City, Mutated, Quarantine, Flesh Eaters and more comes his first supernatural haunted house novel in two premium signed collectible hardcover formats limited to 26 and 150 copies worldwide.  Crooked House is a novel of subtle and encroaching terror in the vein of The Shining by Stephen King.  Own specialty collector editions from one of the top-growing names in horror.  Don't wait until it's too late, join author Joe McKinney in the frightening exploration of the Crooked House.

Click here to read more about Crooked House by Joe McKinney

In this republican country, amid the fluctuating waves of our social life, somebody is always at the drowning point.

Those words were true when Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote them in 1851, and they were true in 1933, when a fire burned half of Crook House to the ground, taking James Crook’s wife and two sons with it.  A disgraced bootlegger and former pro baseball player, James Crook returned from prison to find his house, and his life, a pile of cinders.  Broken and insane, he rebuilt Crook House, putting his pain and loneliness into every timber.

But Hawthorne’s words are still true today, and nobody knows that better than Dr. Robert Bell, who has just moved into Crook House as part of his hiring package from a small Texas college.  He soon discovers that Crook House is more than just a new beginning for himself and Sarah and their daughter Angela.  For the Bell family, Crook House is a place where the past still lives, and its horrors waiting for the next drowning man.

With Crooked House, Joe McKinney brings you a chilling novel in the vein of The Shining by Stephen King, a haunted house tale that will stay with you long after the final page is turned.


About the Authors

In 2012, McKinney's Flesh Eaters won the Bram Stoker Award for Best Novel of 2011.

Re: Dark Regions Press book announcement thread

http://www.darkregions.com/template/images/books/fiction/holes_for_faces/front_med_300px.jpg

From Grand Master horror author Ramsey Campbell comes a new collection with original cover artwork by Santiago Caruso.  Launching next Tuesday, December 4th, Holes For Faces by Ramsey Campbell will be offered in: leather-bound Deluxe Hardcover signed by author and artist and limited hardcover edition signed by author, other editions to be offered at a later date. 

One of the most respected living horror writers in the world, Campbell has more awards for his horror tales than any other author, and "is likely to be remembered as the leading horror writer of our generation," according to S.T. Joshi. One of the heirs apparent to early-twentieth-century American author H. P. Lovecraft, Campbell's horror stories are often set in contemporary Merseyside, England, his own hometown, and involve quite ordinary characters. His unsettling, dreamlike prose, however, transforms his work into very effective horror fiction.

Among his novels are The Face That Must Die, Incarnate, Midnight Sun, The Count of Eleven, Silent Children, The Darkest Part of the Woods, The Overnight, Secret Story, The Grin of the Dark, Thieving Fear, Creatures of the Pool, The Seven Days of Cain, Ghosts Know and The Kind Folk. Forthcoming are The Last Revelation of Gla’aki (a novella) and Bad Thoughts. His collections include Waking Nightmares, Alone with the Horrors, Ghosts and Grisly Things, Told by the Dead and Just Behind You, and his non-fiction is collected as Ramsey Campbell, Probably. His novels The Nameless and Pact of the Fathers have been filmed in Spain. His regular columns appear in Prism, Dead Reckonings and Video Watchdog. He is the President of the British Fantasy Society and of the Society of Fantastic Films.
