Horror

Do creaks in your house send chills rattling up and down your spine?  Are there shadows around your house that you think may be looking back at you?  (Okay, if that's the case, you may want to see a physician).  When you need true, deep fright, check out our Horror ebooks.  All of our authors are masters of horror, and they want you to read their ebooks for free or a very discounted price.

 

Definition of the "Horror Genre": Your primal fears are what authors in the Horror genre seek to evoke.  And, not just evoke, but to make you feel emotions after arousing those fears.  Masters of this genre can even make you feel psychological and physical responses to their stories.  Horror may be getting more difficult to create, because for centuries authors in the Horror genre used fear of the unknown to move their readers.  The unknown, to a certain extent, does not exist anymore.  Our authors in this genre are therefore always seeking the next unknown and the next way to elicit your basest fears.

 

Some examples of bestselling Horror ebooks are Stephen King (The Shining), J.D. Horn (The Line), Anne Rice (Prince Lestat) and Edgar Allen Poe (The Raven,, The Tell-Tale Heart).  As an aside, we could have listed all Stephen King ebooks.  His prolific backlog of bestselling horror ebooks is mind boggling.

Secret Stairs: A Tribute to Urban Legend

by Russell Newquist

 

You mustn't talk about the stairs.


There they stand, surrounded by nothing but forest, pristine as the day they were built. No sign remains of any other structure around them, no ruins of long forgotten buildings. They look... wrong. They feel wrong. Bad things happen if you get too close. Horrible things.

You must never, ever ever talk about them.

Thirty-four of today's best up and coming writers provide wonderfully unique interpretations inspired by the urban legends of the Internet age. Tales range from science fiction to fantasy, horror to mystery, and one writer even penned a romance!

But you must never tell anyone about the stairs!

Damnation Robot: A Paranormal Space Opera Adventure (Galactic Demon Hunters Book 1)

by Aaron Crash

In an infinite universe, evil knows no limits …

When a black hole exploded, killing Blaze and Elle’s father and opening the demonic Onyx Gate, they had no idea how much their lives would change.

Now, thirty years later, Blaze is a highly trained astral Marine, and Elle is a powerful Onyx witch. Together, the siblings have formed an uneasy alliance with a misfit crew of aliens and monsters to track down demons, snare ghosts, and destroy hellish creatures bent on murder—all to discover how to close the Onyx Gate for good.

There’s just one problem. A demon-possessed robot has infiltrated their starship, the Lizzie Borden, and a vicious coven of stellar vampires have stranded them in a graveyard of ships at the edge of known space. All the while, an unimaginable evil is brewing—one they cannot possibly destroy.

“Damnation Robot is a phenomenal mashup of Dresden Files, Firefly, and Warhammer 40K in a fast-paced, shoot-‘em-up, thrill ride that will leave you reading late into the night.” –James A. Hunter, Author of the Yancy Lazarus Series and Viridian Gate Online

by Adrian W. Lilly


Ilene Rune has lived with a secret for 21 years that threatens to destroy her marriage, her life, and all of humanity. But how can she tell her son, Alec, that his new boyfriend, Jared, may be part of that secret? Investigating a brutal murder, Detective Lance Herald enters a dark world of fairy tales and fantasy—that shakes his belief in what is possible and imagined. Lucy Rune cannot fathom what happened the night one brother was slaughtered and the other critically wounded—but she does know, her boyfriend, Rene, who was also attacked is changing. Geraldine Bloom, Alec’s grandmother, has the gift of foresight, and has waited for years for the evil that wants her grandson to come for him. Alec Rune wakes from a coma to learn his twin brother has been murdered—and that he is the only witness. But he remembers nothing of the night.

Werewolves, genetics, and a thrilling murder mystery intertwine in this “multi-layered and unpredictable” (Christine Coretti) horror novel that builds to “an absolutely epic ending” (thegayUK.com). REVIEWS for BOOK TWO OF THE RUNES TRILOGY

"The Wolf in His Arms is like Adrian Lilly’s The Empire Strikes Back. The action comes fast and furious, the characters are virtually divided and conquered, and the situation is dire—and totally unresolved—by the end of the novel. So now it’s just a matter of waiting for Lilly to finish the trilogy." --Boys, Bears and Scares

Strange Weather: Four Short Novels

by Joe Hill

A collection of four chilling novels, ingeniously wrought gems of terror from the brilliantly imaginative, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fireman, Joe Hill.

"One of America’s finest horror writers" (Time magazine), Joe Hill has been hailed among legendary talents such as Peter Straub, Neil Gaiman, and Jonathan Lethem. In Strange Weather, this "compelling chronicler of human nature’s continual war between good and evil," (Providence Journal-Bulletin) who "pushes genre conventions to new extremes" (New York Times Book Review) deftly expose the darkness that lies just beneath the surface of everyday life.

"Snapshot" is the disturbing story of a Silicon Valley adolescent who finds himself threatened by "The Phoenician," a tattooed thug who possesses a Polaroid Instant Camera that erases memories, snap by snap.

A young man takes to the skies to experience his first parachute jump. . . and winds up a castaway on an impossibly solid cloud, a Prospero’s island of roiling vapor that seems animated by a mind of its own in "Aloft."

On a seemingly ordinary day in Boulder, Colorado, the clouds open up in a downpour of nails—splinters of bright crystal that shred the skin of anyone not safely under cover. "Rain" explores this escalating apocalyptic event, as the deluge of nails spreads out across the country and around the world.

In "Loaded," a mall security guard in a coastal Florida town courageously stops a mass shooting and becomes a hero to the modern gun rights movement. But under the glare of the spotlights, his story begins to unravel, taking his sanity with it. When an out-of-control summer blaze approaches the town, he will reach for the gun again and embark on one last day of reckoning.

Masterfully exploring classic literary themes through the prism of the supernatural, Strange Weather is a stellar collection from an artist who is "quite simply the best horror writer of our generation" (Michael Kortya).

The String of Pearls: The Original Tale of Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street

by Thomas Preskett Prest

 

Read the book that sparked the legend.

Look beyond the musical to the real tale of the demon barber of Fleet Street.

 


The myth of Sweeny Todd has long been speculated to come from a true story and this novel, written at the height of the legend, is perhaps as close to the truth as it is possible to get.

The original Sweeny Todd – A String of Pearls is a classic from 1846 that is set in the dark underbelly of London.

Written as a series of Penny Dreadfuls by Thomas Preskett Press, the series has since been collected into a single novel that will have readers itching to find out the next dark twist.

See the characters as you have never seen them before, the way they first appeared.

A String of Pearls follows Sweeny Todd as he descends deeper and deeper into madness.

Having murdered Johanna’s suitor, Sweeny sets in motion the events that lead to his downfall.

Johanna sets out to track her fiancée down and in that process she will unearth a gruesome truth.

Meanwhile Toby, Sweeny’s apprentice, will be driven mad by what he finds.

Sweeny Todd’s dark agreement with Mrs Lovett and her sinister pie shop has stunned Victorian and modern audiences alike.

This classic and brilliant novel will take you back through time and show you a past filled with tragedy and beauty as Johanna goes in search of her lost love.

Johanna’s loyalty and bravery stand out all the more as she risks everything to find the demon barber’s secret.

Todd is a brilliant character – both compelling and horrifying – who has drawn people again and again into his story.

As suspicion grows and Todd becomes more manic and terrifying and Mrs Lovett grows more and more desperate, the two will drive each other further into darkness.

Through the years this timeless tale has captured the imagination.

The world over, A String of Pearls is a classic that went on to spawn both a hit musical and an Oscar-winning movie.

Thomas Preskett Prest (1810-1859) was a British writer, journalist and musician. He was a prolific producer of penny dreadfuls. He wrote under several pseudonyms including Bos, a takeoff of Charles Dickens' own pen name, Boz. Before joining Edward Lloyd's publishing factory, Prest had made a name for himself as a talented musician and composer.

Finders Keepers: A Novel (The Bill Hodges Trilogy Book 2)

by Stephen King

Now an AT&T Audience Original Series

A masterful, intensely suspenseful novel about a reader whose obsession with a reclusive writer goes much too far—the #1 New York Times bestseller about the power of storytelling, starring the same trio of unlikely and winning heroes Stephen King introduced in Mr. Mercedes.

“Wake up, genius.” So announces deranged fan Morris Bellamy to iconic author John Rothstein, who once created the famous character Jimmy Gold and hasn’t released anything since. Morris is livid, not just because his favorite writer has stopped publishing, but because Jimmy Gold ended up as a sellout. Morris kills his idol and empties his safe of cash, but the real haul is a collection of notebooks containing John Rothstein’s unpublished work...including at least one more Jimmy Gold novel. Morris hides everything away before being locked up for another horrific crime. But upon Morris’s release thirty-five years later, he’s about to discover that teenager Pete Saubers has already found the stolen treasure—and no one but former police detective Bill Hodges, along with his trusted associates Holly Gibney and Jerome Robinson, stands in the way of his vengeance....

Not since Misery has Stephen King played with the notion of a reader and murderous obsession, in this #1 acclaimed bestseller filled with “nail biting suspense that’s the hallmark of [his] best work” (Publishers Weekly).

The City of Mirrors: A Novel (Book Three of The Passage Trilogy)

by Justin Cronin

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “A thrilling finale to a trilogy that will stand as one of the great achievements in American fantasy fiction.”—Stephen King

You followed The Passage. You faced The Twelve. Now enter The City of Mirrors for the final reckoning. As the bestselling epic races to its breathtaking finale, Justin Cronin’s band of hardened survivors await the second coming of unspeakable darkness.

The world we knew is gone. What world will rise in its place?

The Twelve have been destroyed and the terrifying hundred-year reign of darkness that descended upon the world has ended. The survivors are stepping outside their walls, determined to build society anew—and daring to dream of a hopeful future.

But far from them, in a dead metropolis, he waits: Zero. The First. Father of the Twelve. The anguish that shattered his human life haunts him, and the hatred spawned by his transformation burns bright. His fury will be quenched only when he destroys Amy—humanity’s only hope, the Girl from Nowhere who grew up to rise against him.

One last time light and dark will clash, and at last Amy and her friends will know their fate.

A horrific dark force is now unleashed on the entire medical team, as each in turn attempts to unlock Ruby's shocking and sinister past. Who is this girl? And how did she manage to survive such unimaginable evil? Set in a desolate ex-mining village, where secrets are tightly kept and intruders hounded out, their questions soon lead to a haunted mill, the heart of darkness...and The Father of Lies.'

BOOK 2 - TANNERS DELL

'OMG - I could not put this book down until every single page was read - I am breathless. Come on with Book 3 Ms England..'
'Enormously frightening. I very rarely give 5 stars but this outstanding achievement deserves it. Black magic never seemed so real.'
'A deliciously dark cocktail of everything I want and need in a good horror novel.'

Despite her fiancé, D.I. Ross, being unconscious and many of her colleagues either dead or critically ill, Becky is determined to rescue Ruby's twelve year old daughter from a similar fate to her mother.

But there is a far deeper vein of horror running through this village; an evil that once invoked has no intention of relinquishing its grip on the modern world. Rather it watches and waits with a focused intelligence, leaving Ward Sister, Becky, and Police Officer, Toby, constantly checking over their shoulders and jumping at shadows.
Just who invited in this malevolent presence? And is the demonic woman who possessed Magda back in the sixteenth century, the same one now gazing at Becky whenever she looks in the mirror?
You may need to sleep with the lights on after reading this…Are you ready to meet Magda in this final instalment to the trilogy? Are you sure?'
